Re: nemo insanely slow when many files in directory

I find that if you have several thousand files in a single directory, then a GUI file manager isn't going to be much help, regardless of speed. Nemo with thumbnails switched off works instantly for me on directory with over 600 files. The thumbnails were never of much use. Pix is better for browsin...

Re: nemo insanely slow when many files in directory

I made a guide on how to switch Nemo for Caja because of this. Might wanna make a timeshift before you attempt this if you aren't a power user. https://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=42&t=324887 I went over your guide. Does it work for you with Mint 20? Can you explain the part about "Librari...

Re: nemo insanely slow when many files in directory

This issue still persists with the newly released Linux Mint 20, with Nemo version 4.6.4. One of the big announcements for Mint 20 was improvements to Nemo, after years of complaints of sluggishness and struggling with larger directories (think albums and galleries.) They made some improvements to h...

Re: [SOLVED] Login Manually

You're most welcome, macbeto! I usually don't post here often, mostly lurk. Though I must say that the Linux Mint community is one of the nicest out there.

Actually I dont have any file called users.conf in that path
My mistake! The correct path is: /etc/lightdm/users.conf

While you're at, in terms of pasting contents, can you paste the contents of the following file as well: /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf

Can you paste the contents of: /etc/lightdm/users.conf You can view it in the default text editor with this command: xed /etc/lightdm/users.conf Mine looks like this: [UserList] minimum-uid=500 hidden-users=nobody nobody4 noaccess hidden-shells=/bin/false /usr/sbin/nologin This is going to sound obv...

Re: Login Manually

I believe that's the default method? Which version of Linux Mint? Check under Settings > Administrator > Login Window > Users "Allow manual login" and "Hide the user list" should both be disabled. Whomever was the most recently signed-in user should be selected by default, and all you need to enter ...

Re: [SOLVED] VLC (3.0) steals focus when mouse cursor hovers over seekbar (Cinnamon only)

This issue has been resolved, sinc the VLC package version 3.0.3 was just released on the official Ubuntu Bionic repositories (which Mint uses by default.)

Re: VLC (3.0) steals focus when mouse cursor hovers over seekbar (Cinnamon only)

This is an issue with Cinnamon, and specifically the latest version on Mint 19. The VLC developers cannot really fix anything on their end.

Re: Linux Mint 19 Desktop won't lock after suspend

I am currently running cinnamon-screensaver in debug mode ( --debug ). Unfortunately, I do not know how to output it directly to a text file, even when using >> or tee . If I accidentally close the terminal window, I will need to redo the process all over again. If anything comes up, hopefully I wil...

Re: Lock screen / suspend is *still* making me nervous: Glitches and freezes

This thread can be continued here: viewtopic.php?f=208&t=274155

It seems as if the problems back from 2016 (Mint 18.x through 18.3) continue on with Mint 19.

Looks like this bug report, back from the Mint 18.x series, has been revived again for 19 (Tara). https://github.com/linuxmint/cinnamon-screensaver/issues/194 Based on this trend, and assuming even more people are affected (who simply don't have a GitHub account or just use another distro now), I do...

Re: Linux Mint 19 Desktop won't lock after suspend

I have experienced this on fresh installs of the 18.x series, and now Mint 19. This has been a longstanding issue as far back as 2016, which is tricky to pinpoint the cause, let alone apply a fix. There are likely many variables at play, so one "fix" to the cinnamon-screensaver package does not corr...
