Re: Prevent automatic download of 5.x kernels

So this is my set of blacklisted packages in the update manager - I think it should cover everything, yet does nothing to prevent 5.4x from being downloaded. https://i.imgur.com/7xLuFyV.png The exact same packages blacklisted above still got downloaded and installed - apt search 5.4.0 | grep ^i i A ...

Touchpad stops working after game crash, fixable without rebooting?

Been playing Wasteland 2, and the damn game often crashes to desktop while loading levels, unrelated to the often quoted fix of increasing the nofile limit (without changing which it is unplayable anyway). Sometimes when this happens, the touchpad will stop working. The touchpad buttons work, but no...

Re: Force apt to use a PPA instead of default

Ah, got it. So it falls back to the default repository, and if they fix the build it should work then?

Re: Force apt to use a PPA instead of default

But they do list a published package - isn't that the same thing?

Force apt to use a PPA instead of default

I use QuiteRSS which has its own PPA as well as being on the default ones. Installed version from default repo is 0.19.3, while the one available from their PPA is 0.19.4 and all the apt updates in the world don't make it pick the one from the PPA over the other, neither was I able to get any of apt...

Additionally, have you tried adding the kernel packages to the blacklist in Mint Update Manager?
I've blacklisted linux-headers, image, meta and modules. Should I set a version to be blocked as well?

Re: Prevent automatic download of 5.x kernels

Wonderful, so either I stay vigilant and keep removing the 5x kernel or lose wifi connectivity (by extension, all connectivity since the router I use to connect isn't my own) for good with an involuntary kernel upgrade to a kernel that refuses to support wifi despite being out for so long. And Windo...

Blank screen on login

After I login on the login window, I momentarily see the xfce panel, then it vanishes and I'm left with an empty black screen and just the mouse cursor with no right click menu. I switched to a command prompt with ctrl alt f1 and killed xfce4-screensaver but nothing else happens no matter how many t...

Re: Prevent automatic download of 5.x kernels

1. remove all non 4.15 kernels manually, and manually install new kernels. Keep up to date yourself by checking the new kernels. Just switched it on today, checked the boot menu and wouldn't you know, again it has downloaded 5.40 without asking. It doesn't look like kernel 5 is ever going to suppor...

Re: Prevent automatic download of 5.x kernels

As you can plainly see, none of these packages are currently installed. I thought the output made that clear.

Re: Can't type in Whisker menu search box after upgrading to 20

It happens at any time, and only since upgrading to 20. I haven't made any non standard customizations if that's what you meant - just sorted menus alphabetically and moved the log off/shut down buttons to the bottom of the panel, and all this was already done before upgrading.

Thanks, this should work, I looked up the grub documentation as well. I'll test it next time I reboot :)

Re: Prevent automatic download of 5.x kernels

Can't find any metapackages, installed or otherwise, when I search for linux-image or linux-headers in Synaptic. The only installed packages are linux-image-4.15.0-109-generic & linux-headers-4.15.0-109-generic

Can't type in Whisker menu search box after upgrading to 20

After updating 19.3 to 20, the Whisker menu has to be reopened a few times for the search box to become typable in. Sometimes when I open it, even clicking on the search box doesn't produce a mouse cursor, have to close and reopen before it shows up.

This is intermittent.
