Re: Touchpad dies after suspend on Mint-xfce 19.1

Sadly, rather quickly after I posted my latest "fix", it started acting up again. Commenting or uncommenting the line described above did not help. It ia a MAJOR annoyance. The most annoying thing is that I did not have this problem with Lubuntu, but I don't want to return to it just for this one is...

Re: Touchpad dies after suspend on Mint-xfce 19.1

Again I MIGHT have found the problem. In /etc/modprobe.d there is a file called: blacklist.conf. In it there is a line: blacklist i2c_i801 When I comment out that line (by putting a # in front of it), now Mint appears to be able to return from suspend without losing the use of the touchpad. In the p...

Re: Cursor freeze on Mint 19

I was happy prematurely-- returning from suspend still finds the cursor frozen often (but not always...) under ANY kernel I tried. So I reboot A LOT, and hate it.

Re: Touchpad dies after suspend on Mint-xfce 19.1

It is an old practice to blame the hardware, but the very same hardware (Yoga 2 Pro) suspends and revives just fine under Windows 10, and used to also do it under linux when I ran Lubuntu (for several years). It was only when I switched to Mint that this started happening, so my finger is pointed th...

Re: Touchpad dies after suspend on Mint-xfce 19.1

Sadly, my glee over the "discovery" of the source of the problem was premature. I deserted kernel 5.23 in favor of the LTS 4.55, which worked fine for a few days, but now the same (death of touchpad after suspend) is happening again with increasing frequency. The touchpad actually works if I logout ...

Touchpad dies after suspend on Mint-xfce 19.1

I am using a Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro with Mint-XFCE 19.1, kernel 5.20. Often (but not always!), when it returns from suspension, the touchpad does not work at all. If I use kernel 4.15.0-55, all works fine. This is the only problem I find with this recent kernel, but it is VERY annoying-- I can only resto...

Re: R 3.6 for Linux Mint 19.1

THANK YOU erzebet for showing us how to install R 3.6 -- I spent two days (I always suspect myself before I blame others) in trying to get around this "non-critical" bug. With your post I was finally able t do it.

Re: Touchpad dies after suspend on Mint-xfce 19.1

I MAY have found the culprit. In my attempt to sedate the jumpy touchpad, I installed xserver-xorg-input-synaptics hwe-18.04, The problem showed up after that. I have now uninstalled it, and -- at least so far-- the laptop returns from suspension with no problem (although the touchpad is still jumpy...

Re: Touchpad dies after suspend on Mint-xfce 19.1

My wife, who works in IT, is a firm believer in the notion that ALL UPDATES SHOULD BE AVOIDED, because more often than not, things get worse with updates. I, on the other hand, always live on the bleeding edge ;-) I consider re-installation a major admission of defeat, and hate the extra work that i...

Re: Touchpad dies after suspend on Mint-xfce 19.1

None of your suggestions apply here-- the touchpad works perfectly in Windows 10 on the very same laptop (dual boot). If I log out, the touchpad works to move the cursor around UNTIL I type in my password, and then, once Mint is fully running, I have no touchad. It also works if I boot from a USB wi...

Touchpad dies after suspend on Mint-xfce 19.1

I am running Mint XFCE 19.1 (Kernel 5.0.0.17) on a Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro. The Synaptic touchpad is very jumpy, so I installed some more packages, following suggestions fished out with Google. Now the (still jumpy) touchpad is sometimes (but not always!) dead when the laptop comes back from suspend, requ...

Re: Cursor freeze on Mint 19

Had the same problem with a Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro (Synaptic touchpad) with Mint-XFCE 19.1 with kernel 5.0.0.17. I went back to 5.0.0.16 and it seems to be working OK for now.

Cannot add networks to HexChat

I tried to use HexChat on Linux-mint-XCFE 19.1. It works fine with freenode.net, but when I tried to add a network (dalnet or undernet) it seems to completely ignore my input, and reverts to what was there before. What I did was to follow the instructions: Click on Add network Edit type the name of ...

I am running Lubuntu 16.10 on a Yoga 2 Pro. When I try to install the cinnamon desktop on it (via ppa from embrosyn), I get errors telling me I have unmet dependencies which cannot be fixed (something that others had with no solution). Does ANYONE know how to install cinnamon? It had it working at s...

Re: [Mint 18] HiDPI support in Mint 18, is it ok?

Many applications work fine for me: Lubuntu 16.10 with Cinnamon 3.2 on a Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro. However, some applications are nearly unusable: ImageJ and master-pdf-editor, for instance, show up with tiny unreadable menus and icons. On the same hardware and OS, gnome and LXDE work fine, so the problem ...

Re: very slow, extremely slow boot

My NUC5i5RYK (with Mint 18, Cinnamon 3, 16 gb ram, 250 gb ssd) takes 34.8 sec to boot, of which 18.8 sec is firmware (MUCH longer than in the past), 5.2 sec loader, 1.9 sec kernel, and 8.9 sec user space. It used to boot MUCH faster (~10 sec) until a recent "upgrade" of the BIOS, and perhaps some Mi...

Re: Teamviewer does not running at startup

Although the Teamviewer error message says to type what you typed (teamviewer --daemon start) it seems that you need to type: teamviewer --daemon enable
That worked for me. Why teamviewer persists in offering the misleading error message is a mystery.

After days of useless systemd-analyze XXX agony, I discovered that the upgrade has changed the UUID of my swap partition (blkid was producing an UUID that was different from what was in the ...
