Re: Logout/login sound problem...

MrEen, your example at the end showed me what I was doing wrong when editing the default.pa file. I made the changes as per your example, rebooted, and the correct output now starts as it should. Thank you for taking the time to help!

Re: Logout/login sound problem...

See if the solution on this thread solves that for you. Unfortunately, that does not work for MATE. As for the previous link you posted, is there a certain header under which I should place the new text defining the profile and card I want used or something I should overwrite? I just tried that and...

Re: Logout/login sound problem...

I am having the same problem with Linux Mint 19 MATE 64-bit. I have built-in analog surround sound that has had no issues since I first built the computer I am using which covers several past versions of Linux Mint including 18.3. However, in 19, when I boot up, somehow it has picked up my Blue Yeti...

Re: When will Brave browser be added into repository?

I've found Brave to be an excellent browser on my Android phone. It is now the only one I use. However, on a Linux or Windows desktop or laptop...not so much. Brave looks to be trying hard but it's just not ready for prime time on those platforms. Brave must not have the same size team as Vivaldi. I...

Re: All Windows Losing Opacity in 18.1 Cinnamon 64-bit

Wow...it happened immediately again after I made my previous post when opening another jpeg (FYI, the very first time this happened, I was opening an mp3 file). Big B 43's solution to restart Cinnamon works but is certainly not a permanent fix. My hardware is just over a year old. I had no problem l...

Re: All Windows Losing Opacity in 18.1 Cinnamon 64-bit

I just had this happen again and, this time, I am 100% certain I did not hit any extra key or mouse button/wheel to trigger it. All I did was click on a jpeg file to open it. It came up with low opacity and everything I had open changed to the same condition. The next time it happens I will try Big ...

Re: All Windows Losing Opacity in 18.1 Cinnamon 64-bit

After six more days of heavy use, boom, back came the problem tonight. I'm still not certain if I did anything to trigger it as, after this long, I thought this had gone away and was not paying close attention. I have just tried Oldbwl's suggestion of changing the opacity setting and then putting it...

Cosmo and Oldbwl...I thank you both for your suggestions. I used my computer for most of this long weekend and, after reporting the problem here, I could not get this issue to repeat itself. I also had another thing going on I had never seen before where Nemo was telling me there was something wrong...

I just tried it to see if that setting might not be working but checking after both doing a scroll up and down on my mouse wheel while the cursor was on the titlebar failed to get t...

All Windows Losing Opacity in 18.1 Cinnamon 64-bit

I installed Linux Mint 18.1 Cinnamon 64-bit four days ago. On the evening I am writing this, I have not made any changes, adjustments, or installations including from the Update Manager (in fact, I don't think I've seen anything new from the Update Manager since the night I installed "Serena"). I wa...

4th paragraph in your link reads " The underlying bug was patched this week by the maintainers of the official Linux kernel. " Here is the patch log : https://lkml.org/lkml/2016/10/19/860 Thanks! The reason I ask is because of the line that comes in the article right after the one you quoted. Downs...

CVE-2016-5195 Linux Bug

Is Linux Mint already patched for this? If not, what should we look for in updates to let us know this has been addressed?

Re: Music Plays but Caja Window Closes or Crashes

did you try the second step, I proposed? Not yet as that sounds a bit involved and I don't want to possibly mess up my audio when I'm very busy and in the home stretch of developing my online radio station. I will try it at some point once I have time in case I mess something up and have to reinsta...

Re: Music Plays but Caja Window Closes or Crashes

Interesting that this problem never seems to fully go away or be addressed by any section of the Linux community. I also find it interesting that, as the person that started this thread on June 9, 2013, the problem completely disappeared for me when I installed Rebecca MATE. Then, in late 2015 when ...

Re: Music Plays but Caja Window Closes or Crashes

I had this problem as well, would move the mouse over a music file, the file would start playing and the file manager window would close, no way to stop the sound.. I found that if i opened preferences in caja and set the 'preview sound files' to NEVER, the problem stopped :-) That does indeed solv...

Re: Music Plays but Caja Window Closes or Crashes

I also have this problem. Hover over music, starts preview, but crashes Caja if you try to start Totem to play the file by double clicking. Totem continues as disconnected process. Is pretty reproducable. I'm glad to see somebody else speak up about this. Frankly, I gave up since this problem seems...

Re: Music Plays but Caja Window Closes or Crashes

Well, since nobody will help with this as far as Caja goes, I tried PCManFM. Yeah, it works fine but the music preview feature is lost. I don't want to lose that feature, I just don't want it to crash my open windows and leave an mp3 playing that I can't stop (other than to turn off the volume). May...
