Re: Delay when clicking/dragging windows

I noticed that, when I click on a window to drag it with a mouse or the touchpad, there is a delay between the moment I move the mouse and the moment this move is reproduced on screen, about half a second. Clem writes in this blog post (read for more info)... Although Vsync prevents screen tearing ...

Re: Update Manager - Unable to get exclusive lock

Thanks for the reply but I only open the Update Manager by clicking on the shield on the panel which means the Update Manager on the Startup Applications has already loaded (after 40 seconds). Yes, and when it loads after 40 seconds, is it automatically checking against the repositories for updates...

Re: Update Manager - Unable to get exclusive lock

Everytime I startup my computer the first thing I do is install any updates ... literally haven't touched anything else before going into the Update Manager. As soon as I close down the Update Manager and then reopen it, it then works fine. I suspect you're manually using Update Manager while the a...

As suspected, after you said that it runs fine on Windows, but crashes on multiple Linux distributions and kernel versions.

Then you are currently running the latest version of LM 19, as the Beta version updated to the Release version when it became available.

Re: The whole operating system crashing randomly

If it is a ram problem it would be impossible to fix because this computer has soldered ram. That's certainly an unfortunate design decision by Lenovo. :? EDIT: In this YouTube video , the RAM module isn't soldered, but it's is a moot point if you never have this issue with Windows, but only with e...

... how should i regenerate or fix that file? You can update GRUB with sudo update-grub in a terminal. Please note that this may not be due to a kernel update. Those hard shutdowns via holding the power button will corrupt your file system sooner or later. Keep a fresh install of LM 18.3 as an opti...

Regardless of crashes, I would start with getting a supported kernel. Support for the 4.8.x branch ended a year ago.

Re: Going back to LM 18.3

Speaking for myself, I'm completely happy sticking with LM 18.3 on my PCs, as I rarely immediately embrace a new major version, unless it has an overly compelling feature that I need. I do have LM 19 on a separate partition, but that's just to play with, figure out how Timeshift works, see what's ne...

Re: I'm having a problem burning an .iso image to a blank disc

Recalling when I spent quite some time trying to resolve similar, only to finally realize that I mistakenly grabbed a blank from the CD stack (i.e., not a DVD), where clearly the DVD-sized ISO would not fit. :roll:

Re: 16.04 vs 18.04: Should I upgrade

I've read the info on what's new in Mint so its not a question of features. With that in mind, and given that LM 18.3 is supported until 2021, I wouldn't recommend upgrading. I'm still running LM 18.3 on all "production" PCs, with LM 19 on a few "development" partitions just to play with. EDIT: The...
