Re: Macbook Retina Iris Pro mid-2015 black screen after boot

I got it back... I went into gparted getting ready to try some things when I noticed there was a partition called linux-suspend instead of one for swap. I deleted it and after a boot that took longer than usual the system came back up fine. I checked power manager the system is only set to shut down...

Macbook Retina Iris Pro mid-2015 black screen after boot

I have a 2015 Macbook Retina Iris Pro running Mint and it works okay, but I have had a few small issues. For example the webcam still doesn't work but there are some people working on a driver. The biggest problem I am having right now is a black screen after boot if the machine runs completely out ...

Re: Potentially unwanted programs

What can a malicious script in the cache do other than inject ads into websites I am viewing?

Also thanks for the quick reply Xenopeek.

[Solved] Potentially unwanted programs

I found I had an ad injector last night. For anyone that does not know they are little programs or scripts on your computer that add advertisements to your browsing and may do other things as well... I ran ClamAV and found some potentially unwanted programs in my Firefox cache and deleted the everyt...

Re: [Solved] Update wants to uninstall 214 packages

As this is a PPA issue I am marking it solved... thanks for the help with troubleshooting. I will probably give the PPA owner a shout.

Re: Update wants to uninstall 214 packages

That's a new one for me, what is the application pastebin? A diagnostic tool that uploads to LM servers?

Re: Update wants to uninstall 214 packages

This might be useful :D
On a side note it would be nice to be able to export that from the GUI as a text file or something.

Re: Update wants to uninstall 214 packages

Let me know if you guys want any more information from my end. Like I said, I really don't care those packages are not that critical to me and can wait till the next major upgrade.

Re: Update wants to uninstall 214 packages

Yeah I am not too thrilled with that screen either...

It's Installing Libpng and Pcsx2 and a few dependencies and removing well near everything best I can tell...
Not sure whats up with that.

[Solved] Update wants to uninstall 214 packages

I am on 17.2 64 bit and an update seems to want to uninstall an unusual amount of packages.
I have included a screenshot.

I'm not too worried about it, I will either upgrade to 17.3 or wait till 18 but I thought you guys might want to see this...
While I am asking questions, should I upgrade to 17.3?

Re: Samba and Mate minor issues

I have two separate things that are a little annoying. 1) Libre Office cannot open files from the share. Other files open fine. I installed the Cinnamon edition a month or two ago to see how things are going and noticed I did not have the issue with the Libre Office files there which is strange. I f...

Re: Samba and Mate minor issues

Its and old 2003 server where I am currently working... I am not doing IT right now, I am working as an ESL teacher in China. So I could probably get the config but I am not the admin. I was hoping someone would say that it had been fixed upstream in a newer version... oh well it's workable. :roll: ...

Samba and Mate minor issues

I have noticed that when running the Mate edition Samba share browsing seems to crash occasionally. Also office files don't open from the share drive. I have tried the cinnamon edition and it does not seem to have the same issues... (but I still can't make it look like my current install). Is this a...

Re: Open as administrator launching engrampa

I found the config file it's the mimeapps.list in /home/user/.local/share/applications I had looked at this and thought it looked like the problem as it was a text file with only engrampa in it. It was much easier to configure through the preferred applications tool, there are quite a few more setti...

[SOLVED] Open as administrator launching engrampa

Hello, I'm running Linux Mint 13 with Mate, when I right click a folder and select "Open as administrator" it launches engrampa. If I uninstall engrampa it no longer does this. I tried a complete removal and re-install of Caja, Caja-gksu, and engrampa with no luck. It's probably an entry in a text f...
