If you've used sudo xed, which is harmful, I advise to make sure that the permissions in your /home are OK:

I decided to leave Windows 7 and decided to take on the Linux Mint challenge to stretch my fossilized neurons from the age of JCL and JES2. I'm looking forward to this and taking my time with it. :)

Re: Who would do this to their Cinnamon desktop?

I don't like Xfce and KDE died in these Mint Forums. Mint Xfce is alive and kicking.... It's just that it so seldom causes any problems. :mrgreen: I only install Mint Cinnamon on modern powerful machines. On weaker machines, I always install Mint Xfce. It's great that Mint 19.3 Xfce has Xfce 4.14.1...

Re: Kernel version 5.3 - report

Update Manager suggested an upgrade to Kernel version 5.3 so I tried it. Sadly it caused the dreaded sudden death syndrome again. The machine mysteriously stops. no error. no logged event. no crash dump. I have reverted to 5.0.0 and all is good again. This machine has been working beautifully on 19...

Re: Hard time with rtl8812au

As said in my post, i'm trying to upgrade only for "learning purpose" Fair enough. and because i'll probably want to switch to kubuntu in the next months. Kubuntu sports most recent kernels, so i need to know the behaviour of my hardware first. There's no difference in kernel range for Linux Mint a...

Also, Is there a reason your moving up to this kernel since your older kernel works fine?
That's a crucial question. Ordinarily, when all hardware is working well, there's no point in dumping the 4.15.x kernel, which is LTS.

Re: Resetting video driver

You shouldn't have attempted to install those Radeon drivers in the first place. Golden rule: if Driver Manager offers you no closed non-free driver to begin with, stick to the default drivers in the Linux kernel, because they are usually the best. There are of course exceptions, but those shouldn't...

Re: Tip: a super lightweight Linux

First try 64-bit: the 32-bit ecosystem is dying, so 64-bit usually is the best choice. For your still rather powerful machine, running a 64-bit Bodhi smoothly should be no problem at all.

By the way: are your tools 64-bit only?
