Re: mouse cursor becomes invisible after chaning users on cinnamon 18

I upgraded to Mint 18.2 and the problem has worsened: even with cntr-alt-esc I will not see the mouse cursor again after switching users.
Annoying...

Re: LM 18.1 Dropbox icon problem in notification area.

Mysteriously, the icon reappeared the last few days.
Only the QuiteRSS icon is still missing now.

Re: LM 18.1 Dropbox icon problem in notification area.

Well, lucky you. My Dropbox icon does not show in Mint 18.1, even not after the command you used.
It only appears after

Code: Select all

dropbox stop
sudo dropbox start

BTW my system tray icon QuiteRSS does not show either.

Re: No sound in Linux Mint 18 x64

I do not have sound either; but after a restart, without changing anything, I do invariably have sound.

Same here; press ctrl-alt-esc to restart Cinnamon and the cursor appears again.

Re: Dropbox overlay icons visible in Nautilus, but not in Nemo

I did notice that the emblems were hard to see with the icon theme i am using. Perhaps this is the case for you?


Yes! I changed icons from 'Gnome' to 'Mint-X' and the overlays became visible.
Thank you!

Re: Dropbox overlay icons visible in Nautilus, but not in Nemo

This doesn't seem to work in Mint 18. Tried all the steps mentioned, but no overlay icons.
I installed Dropbox from the Linux repositories. Dropbox itself functions OK.

Re: Nemo does not show my USB-stick anymore

Dear Cosmo,

I tried other USB-sticks, and most of them (not all) show up in Nemo!
But all of them result in a system sound: USB mounted.
So it appears to be a hardware faillure of some of my USB-sticks.

Thanks again for your help.

Re: Nemo does not show my USB-stick anymore

Other ports: same result (a sound from the system, but Nemo does not show the stick). I installed Nautilus just to check. I created a new user: same results. Live session: same result. I am beginning to doubt if I ever saw the stick in Nemo... Anyway: very strange. I will try another distribution la...

I meant Sudo Nautilus, not Sudo Nemo.

Code: Select all

/home/roland/.gstreamer-0.10/registry.x86_64.bin


I am installing Mint on a USB-stick now (USB-writer recognizes the stick!) and start a live-session to see if I can see my USB-sticks.

Nemo does not show my USB-stick anymore

Nemo does not show my USB-stick anymore.
I hear a sound when I plug in my USB stick, but it does not show up in Nemo.
BTW: I have the impression that Mint/Cinnamon is becoming buggier; I did a fresh install.

[SOLVED] Twice GRUB?

Mint 17.3; Root on SSD, /Home on HDD. I installed, by curiosity, Fedora along Mint. Fedora did not ask where to save grub. Now I want to change the boot order in GRUB (of course, I prefere Mint) with Grub Configurator; however, these changes have no effect as my laptop reads another version of GRUB....

Re: Digikam won't start

You didn't state if you have installed the Oxygen icon theme ?

Oxygen theme is installed now.

But somehow I managed to hide the menu bar, and I can't unhide it.

Control-m.
