Re: It's a gift from God

This place. :mrgreen: self.Symphaties.Clear(); In Mint 17 I had issues with my video card when attaching two monitors. Should I roll back to Linux Mint 13 (LTS) in stead of upgrading to 18? Of course not. As a developer it's always a battle between having up-to-date packages, and wanting LTS so you ...

It's a gift from God

I have 2 computers and 3 bluetooth headsets. My life was good in the 18 months that I used Linux Mint 17 Cinnamon. That is until I migrated to Linux Mint 18. In the past few months I have experienced that - for some reason that probably nobody can explain - I can't seem to pair my headsets, or I onl...

Disable or reset Display Settings

I have a specialistic configuration in xorg.conf for nVidia TwinView to get a 60 Hz Multi-Stream Transport (MST) onto my Dell UP2414Q UHD monitor. However, on login, everything gets totally messed up. The left and right part of the screen are swapped, and they both pan a little bit to accommodate fo...

Re: Screen freezes randomly after upgrade to 17.3

I can't find this specific problem, so I've created a bug on Github.

If this affects you too, please post your specs there:

Screen freezes randomly after upgrade to 17.3

I upgraded Linux Mint Cinnamon 17.2 to 17.3 the other day in the hopes of fixing the bug where network shares (which I use a lot) don't remember the passwords anymore, even if I tick the box. I also upgraded the kernel to the recommended version. However, now my Lenovo X1 Carbon (2013) laptop screen...

Re: Bluetooth headsets not showing up in audio devices

Cinnamon, and I don't know if I have blueman installed.

I know that on every other computer with Mint Cinnamon, everything works out of the box, so at least I have blue-something installed. :mrgreen:

Bluetooth headsets not showing up in audio devices

I have the TTF equalizer for PulseAudio installed, because I think it's retarded that there is no built-in way to equalize your audio. In Windows there were always equalizers with the audio drivers, and during my brief OSX period there were also (easy to install (!)) apps for that. So unfortunately ...

Re: Dropbox, applet/ indicator not appearing

~/.config/autostart/dropbox.desktop

Clever. Although sometimes when I suspend and resume, the icon is gone again. But upon investigation, it's because the dropbox service is stopped. How does this happen?

Re: How to load a dark GTK theme in Linux Mint Cinnamon

You seem to know your dark themes. :D What is you favorite? I tried a lot. But they are not as polished as the light themes, because they all have some elements that I don't consider A-quality. For example, I like "Vertex Theme" overall, but the black window titles and the uncontrasty diff...

Re: Dropbox, applet/ indicator not appearing

In Cinnamon it's called Startup Applications.
Unfortunately this is not working for me.

Re: Dropbox, applet/ indicator not appearing

Mint 17.2 Cinnamon x64 here. No dropbox icon.

Fix for current session:

Code: Select all

dropbox stop && dropbox start


Very annoying though.

Commenting on Cinnamon Spices

How come there are recent comments on Cinnamon Applets, but I cannot sign in or register? Also, how can one contact an author? Clicking their name just shows an avatar.

I got my Dell Ultrasharp UP2414Q working on Linux Mint17 Qiana using an nVidia GeForce GTX 660 Ti . Let me elaborate a bit on the terms, maybe you can get it to work too. :) ⋅ First, check out if your video card supports 4K UHD at this page: ⋅  www.geforce.com/hardware/technology...
