Re: Cinnamon crashed and goes to fallback mode after updating

On November 16, 2017, I updated Mint 17.3 using the update manager. In the past, I have used the update manager several times successfully. However, this time, Cinnamon would not load and Mint went into fallback mode. I spent hours trying to get Cinnamon going and ended up completely reinstalling M...

Re: System freezes and stability problems - Mint 18.2

I didn't realize that installing the Grub Customizer wasn't a good idea and it was installed for convenience, not by necessity. I'll uninstall it. That won't help.... The changes it has made, cannot be undone so easily. At least not in a way that I know of. More information: https://sites.google.co...

Re: Shall we live OR Shall we die?

In 100 years we'll all be dead anyway. :mrgreen:

But it's a fake scare: in 1999 it was claimed that there was a small possibility of a hit, not a certain nor even a probable hit. Which has been changed since, to a sure flyby. So no luck, you'll still have to pay off your mortgage. :lol:

Re: About kernel

I think you should accept all level 4 updates as of mint 18.2. Ubuntu sometimes makes changes to packaging and holding back certain updates leads to conflicts and dependency issues. Some disagree with me on this. I think you should install level 4 updates as well, one by one, with a reboot between ...

I can not become superuser.
do I have to activate something?

the password is correct and I can use the command "sudo"

Becoming superuser is not the way Linux Mint is designed to be used. Why do you want this?

Re: Cinnamon crashed and goes to fallback mode after updating

Older kernels (if available) are "hidden" under the Advanced section of the Grub bootloader menu. I don't see an Advanced Secion of Grub. This is what my screen looks like when I first turn on my laptop: https://imgur.com/a/bKNQh You're right: in Mint 17 there's an older Grub, which is a ...

Did you perhaps install any desklets and/or applets in your Cinnamon? If so, remove them and see whether that helps.

Probeer dit eens:

Herstart daarna je computer.

Wellicht helpt dat voor het aanraakveld (niet voor losse muis).

No answer, but just for comparison with a healthy system, this is what it says on my machine:
