Re: wine-silverlight installer shows before login screen

Hi all, I had the same issue and it is fixed now, although i undertook quite some actions one after the other so - not sure which one did the trick. 1. I searched for the wine-silverlight installer 5.1 through apt-file but could not find it 2. Downloaded it: http://www.ubuntuupdates.org/package/ehoo...

Re: Cinnamon 1.4 Frequently Crashes

With me it is rock solid so, would be interesting to hear from you what errors you found in the log files.
