Re: how to request package updates?

I understand why the distro is locked... but when you have an issue with an included package? That was my question. When a distro is based on another distro I wanted to understand where a defect report or package update request should land. I walked through the "manual installer" on the Tilix site a...

Re: 19.3 kernel update today and now no boot

SOLVED!! stephanieswitzer called it... in my case it was definitely an nvidia driver conflict.

The kernel update yesterday 5.3.0-28-generic came with an nvidia driver update and it works!

Re: how to request package updates?

Understood about the risk... Would you consider building myself as a "better" option? Or on the Ubuntu page I linked there is a .deb package. There is no official PPA and I don't want to add some random PPA that some have posted. My original post was how to request a package update (or add a new pac...

how to request package updates?

I'm certain I'm missing an FAQ - but how do you request a package is updated in the official repositories? I use Tilix and the version available in the Mint repositories is almost 2 years old. Ubuntu eoan https://packages.ubuntu.com/eoan/tilix and the official github page are the much newer version....

no logo on boot after gparted

I have a macbook pro, 2012 - 64bit. I installed 19.3 when it came out dual boot with OSX. I like it so much I decided to remove my OSX partitions, resize the drive and use it solely as a Mint system. The OSX partition was before the swap and then the Mint partion. I deleted the OSX and swap partitio...

Re: I Can't Use Kernel 5.3 and Now I Don't Know What to DO

FWIW, I also got the update from 5.0 to 5.3 and I can't even boot anymore ... I used timeshift and when the update notification came up I chose ignore this update... so far it works.

Re: 19.3 kernel update today and now no boot

thanks. The 5.0 kernel works fine. Is there any way for me to resolve the issue with 5.3? Is it "common" that a kernel doesn't suit a machine? Is a kernel update usually a "hold your breath" event? :) I'm using a Macbook Pro 2012 and so far the level of support specific to macbooks (at least mine) i...

[SOLVED]: 19.3 kernel update today and now no boot

I have successfully been using 19.3 for about a week - using kernel 5.0. This is going to be my main working machine so I am very conservative about changes or doing anything risky. Everything was working well. About 2 hours ago I got an update notification that there was a new kernel (5.3) and seve...

Re: Remote desktop with 19.3

I'd really like to get xrdp working. Mint currently lacks an integrated remote desktop solution. I'd like to suggest it would be a good option for any user now that vino is gone. If I can get this working I intend on writing a mini tutorial/FAQ for others and campaign to have it added to the distro....

Remote desktop with 19.3

I've tried vino with dConf settings. I've tried more than one VNC server (x11vnc got the closest - a desktop that only has the upper left quarter of the screen visible - vino is slow and eventually crashes no matter what I enable/disable) and x11rdp. I have a raspberry pi and x11rdp works flawlessly...

Macbook pro wake on suspend issue

After a new install of 19.3 x64 when I close the lid and reopen later the login screen is barely responsive. I usually don't see keystrokes in the password field (or I might see one and then nothing, seems like something hangs) and the screen is very dim. That said, I can type my password and login ...

Cinnamon panel icons don't save sizes

I've had all kinds of weird issues with changing the Colored and Symbolic icon sizes using 19.3 cinnamon- but not with all icons. The most reproducible one: the applet "Shutdown Menu with Icons" indicator icon is very small after a reboot - notice the icon in the most upper right hand corner. This d...

Re: [SOLVED] Panel (toolbar) Disappeared

This is old but it happened to me using Linux Mint 19.3. I was in panel edit mode and had clicked on a application's icon. For whatever reason the icon was in drag mode and despite not holding down the left mouse button I clicked "exit panel edit mode" off and poof - the panel disappeared. The fix f...

Failed to retrieve share list from server. No such file or directory". I'm on a simple home network - no servers, file shari...
