Startup application not running

I have a startup that switches the Ctrl and Alt keys. /usr/bin/xmodmap /home/ajax/.Xmodmap in startup applications. However it never runs. Now, if I got Settings and select Startup Applications then scroll down to my configured startup and Click the Run Now it works. I have tried 0 delay to 10sec de...

Re: 15 sec login

Buzzer, wrong. It's the freaking Applets causing the slow login.
Let's see now, Cinnamon is the Flagship DE for Linux Mint but if you install Cinnamon on another Distro, good luck getting support. Real nice.
As the airlines say, "Buh bye."

Re: 15 sec login

Because I feel it is a Cinnamon problem. It has little basis on which Distro you run, It's Linux MIint's showcase DE.

15 sec login

15 sec login seems to be a bit too long. I renamed .config/autostart and logged in. 11 sec login. There must be something Cinnamon is doing behind the scenes. My laptop is just about 10yrs old. Once I am logged in the system is fine, really snappy. I also have Xfce on this computer and it logs in in...

gtk 3.20 or gtk 3.22

I just came over from running Antergos (Arxh), got tired of their constant elitist attitude, but at least I was on the lastest gtk, 3.22 in that case. Now I am here and all my custom themes do not work correctly. My question is, when the heck is Mint going to get gtk 3.20 or 3.22 on the system? Both...

Re: Meta packages

Kingsoft Office or something like that is WPS. I am running Mint 18 sarah with : Kernel: x86_64 Linux 4.7.2-040702-generic and that still beggars the question, "Why was LO removing themes and artwork?" Had to be a meta package somewhere because when I tried reinstall themes/artwork, Synaptic reporte...

Meta packages

I just installed WPS and removed LibreOffice and when I did Mint themes, Mint Artwork were also removed. WHY oh WHY? What has LibreOffice have to do with Mint themes and artwork. Fortunately I had backups so no 'real' harm done. I presume that somewhere in there is a meta package that has dependenci...

Re: Just a side note to Clem

I don't believe you guys. They are errors. IF innocuous then don't issue them. For christsake, they are errors. Get over your selff-righteousness about whether Clem should read the posting.
You guys sound like Arch users with all your indignity of someone raising an issue.

Re: Just a side note to Clem

And here we are in September with the same issue. Perhaps the Dev's and Clem should review the .xsession-erors file from time to time.

Re: What is the normal RAM usage for Mint 17.1 MATE???

I know I am a bit late in the discussion but I am running Antergos w/Cinnamon and my ram usage at idle is about 350mb. With Chrome running with 1 tab open it is about 700mb. For Mate at idle to be using 1gb seems a bit high to me. When I ran Xfce on Antergos my memory was at about 250mb. When i ran ...

Re: i just want one, universal, cursor theme

You have to edit the /usr/share/icons/default/index.theme

then replace on the 'inherit' line with the EXACT name of the cursor you want to use.

Logoff and you should see your desired cursor at logon as well.

Good luck.

Re: xsession-errrors file filling up with 'guint'

7 months and still not fixed. I left a while ago and went to Antergos then just straight Arch. No more of those silly errors that no one appears to want to fix. .xsession-errors should be a pre-requisite check to see if all is well. I have found so many errors, sometimes wtih Themes, sound, you name...

Re: Cinnamon window focus while minimizing

Don't know if you would call this 'clever' but I initially started out with LMDE and then I went to the 'Dark Side'. I changed my repositories to point to SID. I am now running Cinnamon 2.2.16 and do not have the issue you speak of. Follow the instructions on the post http://forums.linuxmint.com/vie...
