Re: Evolution EWS - Not accepting password

YMMV of course, but I finally gave up on Evolution after many years. Sometimes it takes the password, sometimes it doesn't. Sometimes it remembers, sometimes it doesn't.

I wanted very badly to keep it but finally switched to T-Bird/Lightning.

Re: And When I Woke Up, My Icons Were Gone!

I've had this problem too- to bring them back, just open a directory as a folder (e.g., click on 'Home' on your desktop).

Re: Fresh Installation Of Mint 16 - Desktop Image Displays T

Have you tried "center" and "scale" and so on? (Advanced options on the Change Desktop Background settings.) I think you can get to it by right-clicking on the desktop.

Re: Proprietary Nvidia driver Olivia 15 Cinnamon freezes

I wish I knew more about these systems. All the data seems so random, but somehow I feel that if the right person saw these threads it would be obvious what is going on. I should add here that I have both an onboard graphics card and the nvidia driver. I know that presents some problems for getting ...

Re: Proprietary Nvidia driver Olivia 15 Cinnamon freezes

I wish I had an answer- I'm bumping because there are display issues in both Cinnamon and Mate and nobody seems to be chiming in. The best I can determine is that so far, it seems that some applications mess with the drivers something fierce! So, a question for you: Can you tell if the problem is be...

Re: Problem Using Second Monitor

My two-monitor setup is working well under Cinnamon now- I just had to do a full reboot of the machine. I'm on nvidia G210M. I keep two separate xorg.conf files- one for single monitor (ie, laptop only) and one for when I am running two monitors). I do a sudo cp <fileINeed> xorg.conf and restart X (...

Re: Uncontrolled blinking in Mate (15 Olivia)

Rebooting the machine allowed mdm (or whatever) to pick up the monitor configurations, so two-monitor is working fine.

Re: Problem Using Second Monitor

I just loaded Cinnamon since there has been no joy in the Mate world of blinking video. I also run a two-monitor setup, so I am watching this thread. When I loaded Cinnamon and checked the blinking (there was none), only my secondary (external) monitor was getting signal- the laptop's internal monit...

Re: Ctrl-Alt-Fn Mystery in Linuxmint 15 Mate 1.6.0

I've noticed what I understand to be your symptoms, but for a different cause. In a two-monitor setup sometimes my tty is on the offscreen monitor- which is not fired up using tty! So I also have to fly blind. But if I have a single monitor, or if somehow the main monitor is chosen (like it was the ...

Re: frozen dialog box that i cannot close

You may also want to try logging in to tty (say, ctrl-alt-f3 for tty 3), doing a ps aux |grep <application name> to find the process id for the offending application, then kill -9 <pid> the process. pkill <application name> also can work but seems to be less reliable. If the process is running as ro...

Re: Uncontrolled blinking in Mate (15 Olivia)

Well, that didn't work. Apparently nvidia-310 was registered with the kernel or something, and when I rolled back to 304 X wouldn't start.

sigh.

Re: Friday update borked X lsb-base? -release?

Just discovered today that opening LibreOffice will also start the blinking issue- but it stops after a few seconds (5 'pulses') and the system is usable. No errors are written to the console when started from the console.
