Is my user id 1000? How did you know that? Use the command "id" to see your user id and information about what group your user belongs to. Here is mine: $ id uid=1000(rhtopics) gid=1000(rhtopics) groups=1000(rhtopics),4(adm),24(cdrom),27(sudo),30(dip),46(plugdev),113(lpadmin),114(sambasha...

Re: Gufw firewall not working

After you bring up gufw, do the command "dmesg" from a terminal window. I am using Linux Mint 18.3 and this is what I get in dmesg after bringing up gufw. nf_conntrack: default automatic helper assignment has been turned off for security reasons and CT-based firewall rule not found. Use th...

Re: Gufw firewall not working

You might try running gufw from a terminal window. That way it may show error or warning messages to help determine the problem.

In System Settings, Appearance -> Theme, try changing the Windows Borders and Controls to Adwaita.

Changing to Adwaita in LM Cinnamon 18.3 stops the flickering for me.
