Re: Mint 19 – grey empty desktop after kernel update to 4.15.0.42.44

Hello, Mark_1. We'll be patiently waiting to read your next post, hoping the issue will not have re-appeared. By the way, just today kernel update 4.15.0-42.45 has been installed on Mint 19 Cinnamon here. The system has been rebooted in order to load the new kernel. And ... Cinnamon has come up norm...

Re: Mint 19 – grey empty desktop after kernel update to 4.15.0.42.44

Admitted. But the version string confusion is not what may cause Mark_1's Mint 19 Cinnamon to drop back to software rendering mode, after it has been started up with kernel 4.15.0-42.45. -- Just occurs to me: my Mint 19 Cinnamon+xfce system has not been upgraded to kernel 4.15.0-42.45, yet. So maybe...

Hi, gm10. I stick with what uname -a displays. :wink: --Thursday, 06-Dec-2018 21:45-- As I saw just this evening: The Update Manager displays the Linux kernel header packages group giving 4.15.0-42.44 as their version string. The same Update Manager displays the Linux kernel generic packages group g...

Re: Mint 19 – grey empty desktop after kernel update to 4.15.0.42.44

Hello, Mark_1. Just 2 remarks from my side: no issues until the recent kernel update to 4.15.0.42.44. I assume the kernel version really was 4.15.0-42.45. :wink: Apart from that: yes, in rare cases a new kernel may bring along a regression, which affects precisely your hardware. As I do not know any...

Re: Wifi not working "newbie"

Hello, Hawkeye_95. I do not wish to disappoint you; yet, it might be that the wifi adapter Realtek RTL8821CE is currently not supported by any Linux kernel, because Realtek has not made the wifi driver source code available. This is at least, what JeremyB repored here only recently. And JeremyB as a...

Re: Removing old kernels

Hi, Simon. There are quite few threads in the forum, covering the topic of cleaning up no longer needed kernels. Personally, I keep the currently running kernel (Who would have suspected so) plus the previous kernel and the kernel before that one. So a total of 3 kernels. Yet, really, it would be su...

Re: [SOLVED] Installing LM19 Tara and retaining users from LM18.3 /home

Hello, BG405. Let me add this detail: Whether you have to use chown on the existing old home directories or not, does not depend on the usernames, but on their UIDs. Provided you create the same users and they have the same usernames and the same UIDs as on the old system, then you will not have to ...

Re: apt upgrade complaining about modified grub file

Hi, gm10. OK. You are right. Never occurred to me, because my /etc/default/grub file will always be modified by me. :wink: In case a newer Grub version changes parameters, brings along new parameters, drops old ones, I will adopt those changes into my /etc/default/grub file and execute sudo update-g...

Re: apt upgrade complaining about modified grub file

Hi, rimvydukas. Do not overinterpret the question whether to keep the current /etc/default/grub file or to install the new one. Simply select "keep the current file" (default choice anyway). The new file will be stored in /etc/default/ next to the existing grub file, so that you can compare the two ...

Thanks sleeper12 for the English translation. Moved the thread to the German sub-forum nonetheless.
You might end up having to translate from German to English and vice versa throughout the whole thread. ;-)
