Re: Black block under notification area panel icons.

I've found that reducing the panel size to about 22 pixels sorts this issue.

Re: Linux Mint 17.3 Caja hangs sometimes

Just to clarify what I meant by hangs -- that is the cursor turns into the rotating circle thing - not the actual desktop freezes. Oh wow, so this whole issue was purely a cosmetic mouse cursor issue? No, it's not a cursor issue. I mean when Caja is busy the cursor does that rotating circle animati...

Re: 17.3 Caja hangs sometimes.

Is your crontab -e file otherwise not empty? I have 2 entries in that. The entries auto delete files older than x many days. Sounds extremely fishy. Would you mind posting those 2 lines and then experimenting with an edited blank file? I've been using those 2 lines long before there were issue with...

Re: 17.3 Caja hangs sometimes.

I would ask, "When did this start happening? Was it fairly recent? Was there an upgrade(s) which happened around the time this problem began?" Also, there is the option of re-installing. If you do re-install, be sure to use the backup-manager first, to make a list of all your software selections an...

Re: 17.3 Caja hangs sometimes.

Hi ostracized. I disagree, I see the quote from the late great Husse as being still relevant in this situation. I think I might just go to Vanilla Debian and leave the Ubuntu-train. There are no broken sym links, unreachable network locations, or otherwise unusable desktop shortcuts that I've notice...

Re: Control Center - Desktop Preferences Error

Caja is awesome alright. Good choice. :-) Plus, both were on Mint 17.3 anyway and removing Caja would screw up the whole system. Having both is redundant and you have to jump through hoops to get PCManFM to work properly. I have PCManFM installed as a backup in the unlikely case that Caja goes wonk...
