Re: [not solved] Cinnamon is getting increasingly slow to start

The problem is still occurring to me. Today Cinnamon started in 22 seconds as measured with a stopwatch, but the desktop reports a loading time of 7170 ms. The time gap between the first message in xsession-errors and the Cinnamon start-up is 20 seconds. I opened an issue 3 month ago, but it got no...

Re: Adding new user to Linux Mint

This is odd. The cinnamon config files have been created, which seems to indicate the desktop started correctly, but just doesn't show anything. So either something messed up the Cinnamon start up (but still created the config files before that), or this is just a graphical problem. I'll try to repr...

Why is the mark upgrade button missing from synaptic ?

Re: [not solved] Cinnamon is getting increasingly slow to start

Hi, Hibernation is disabled by default on most Linux distributions because it has some problems with some machines. Also my problem is specific to Cinnamon so I doubt a system-wide fix will be the solution :) You asked for help and I was trying to help, dude. And you didn't specify that you did't h...

Re: [not solved] Cinnamon is getting increasingly slow to start

In Windows the same problem come from the complete arrest of the sistem at the end of each session. Instead, if you hybernate in the place of arrest, the problem is more or less solved; or at least is smaller.

Keep the traditional layout option in mintwelcome

I and many other users find the "launchers + full window list" combo way more practical than the default "grouped windows with pinned apps"

Re: Mint 20 Cinnamon Edition - How to Switch to 'Traditional' Layout

I have to agree. I hate to say that but removing this option from the welcome screen is a shame. I dunno where to post about this unfortunately. Is there a way to make a poll ?

Re: Cinnamon is getting increasingly slow to start

Hi all,

I just wanted to inform you that everything was now back to normal (10s to load) without doing anything special.
I guess the issue have been resolved by some recent update.

Thanks anyways for the help !
Bye :)

Re: Cinnamon is getting increasingly slow to start

So no great insight except comparing to my output there are a few services loading there which seem to take several seconds which happen earlier in the boot process for me - before the login screen has fired up. [...] So basically you're saying there's no problem for me, but how to explain Cinnamon...

Re: Cinnamon is getting increasingly slow to start

Launch Driver Manager and install the closed non-free Nvidia driver it recommends to you. Then reboot and test. I'll try that asap, however I don't get how openbox could be unaffected if this was a system-wide problem ? :? Edit: installed the driver with no effect. So the problem appears to be prio...

Re: Cinnamon is getting increasingly slow to start

What applets/desklets/extensions did you install in your Cinnamon (if any)? The complete name of my applets in the debugger are "CinnVIIStarkMenu@NikoKrause" and "cinnamon-timer@jake". I'd like to insist on the fact that resetting the cinnamon settings to default (thus disabling...

Hey there,

I think you'd have a better chance to get meaningful answers if you started a dedicated thread for your bluetooth problem.

Bye ! :)
Thank you! But how do I do so?
Just click "new topic" in the newbie section, but only ask one question per topic.

Re: Bluetooth App issue and animation not appearing on startup or shutdown

Hi David, I unfortunately can't help you with the bluetooth but have an answer to your second issue. If you want to get the Mint GRUB menu back, you could do (from Mint) something along the lines of this: sudo grub-install That might not fix your problem though, I also have problems with the startup...
