Re: How to clean up shared home directory?

Thank you both jglen490 and JoeFootball :) I think I'll try it this way: - have a separate /home for each distro (LM 18.3 and 19.3, possibly Ubuntu and/or other I want to test) - have the minimum necessary in each /home - keep everything else on another partition - link from the latter to each /home...

How to clean up shared home directory?

Hi guys, being a faithful LM Cinnamon user I have at least a couple of LM installations on my main desktop. At the moment I have LM 18.3 which I consider the main working (and stable) OS, LM 19.2 which I've played with in the past (strangely not so stable, plus I miss the middle mouse button menu fo...

Re: Nemo can't open ext4 partition

Hello gittiest personITW (???), I tried your tip and it worked: root can open that partition, so it is definitely accessible. Actually, I also tried to open it as normal user and it worked! So it must have been a glitch in Nemo, which was somehow resolved after n reboots :) Thanks for your help anyw...

[SOLVED] Nemo can't open ext4 partition

Hi all, since I had some unused space on my HDD I merged free space and unused partitions into a new one, formatted it and copied stuff on it. Everything seems to work fine, except that Nemo refuses to open one of the already existing partitions! I can see its content via terminal, I can open it wit...

Re: Cinnamon suddenly very slow and jerky (18.3)

Maybe that (partitions almost full) is true for the root and home partitions? I have room there, other practically full partitions never bothered me. I don't have too many extensions in Firefox (I think :) and they've been the same for about the last six months now. Thanks for your tips in any case!...

Re: Cinnamon suddenly very slow and jerky (18.3)

I will try the hardware acceleration feature, switching it off in FF,...

Re: Cinnamon suddenly very slow and jerky (18.3)

Thanks for the tip! I tried all of the steps recommended by that article, let's see if it gets better. What buggers me is that this happened abruptly, my desktop was fast and smooth just a few weeks ago. Also, while I only have decent CPU and graphic adapter, I got plenty of memory and the root part...

Cinnamon suddenly very slow and jerky (18.3)

Hi guys, I don't know if it is somehow related to the latest kernel upgrades, but all of a sudden my 18.3 Cinnamon desktop has become quite slow and jerky, with the mouse moving in a really unpleasant way. Is anybody experiencing anything similar? At first I thought that it was Firefox' fault (it to...

Re: HiDpi - Some programs not scaling properly

I am having similar problems on a full HD display (13" physical dimensions): how about Java and Wine programs? I'm not sure how to increase the character size in those.

Re: mintupdate update wants to uninstall all virtualbox-guest packages

It turns out that uninstalling those packages was just preliminary to an update of the whole Virtualbox package, so going to do that and check that everything is working.

Thank you,

[Solved] mintupdate update wants to uninstall all virtualbox-guest packages

Hi all,
as per package this latest version of mintupdate apparently wants to get rid of my virtualbox-guest-* packages, currently at version 5.0.40-dfsg. Can I go ahead and those will be update as well, or is this going to break my virtualbox software?

Thank you,

A few weeks later, I wonder how that may happen ... perhaps I should open an issue on GitHub? Has any developer opened one, or noted the problem? In the meanwhile, my shiny new laptop continues to freeze randomly, and all the other problems I mentioned I still there. Please don't make me go back to ...

Problems with LM Cinnamon on an Asus Zenbook

Hello everybody, I've recently bought an Asus Zenbook UX310UQ and installed LM Cinnamon 18.3 on it: it works, but I've been surprised by some problems I met, not yet resolved by subsequent Cinnamon updates. 1. UI scaling is not perfect: the resolution of 1920x1080 on a 13.3" screen must be tricky to...

Re: A few issues with Cinnamon in LM 18.2

Now that I think of it, I'm using the same /home directory as with LM 18.1, which means that while it is in fact a fresh install and not an update, I'm using exactly the same array of themes than before. Yep, it was an oldish theme (Elegans dark) that caused those problems, also the desktop icon one...
