nvidia drivers crash cinnamon after upgrade from 18.3 to 19.2

Hi there! I upgraded my Mint laptop today because I needed luks2 support on it (to mount encrypted usb disks). Now when I don't configure niveau drivers in the driver manager cinnamon won't start correctly. Also I tried installing bumblebee since I have intel and nvidia graphics but that also doesn'...

Re: Need help debugging system freezes

I would venture to say that your freezes are the result of you graphics care Nividia and Nouveau driver. either set the nouveau to nomodeset or install the correct nvidia driver for you card by going to Menu> Administration> driver manager. If you want to continue to use nouveau you will have to ed...

Re: Need help debugging system freezes

I said no such thing. I said to create a new user account for testing purposes , definitely not to replace your main account with its customizations. Yes. But as I explained in a reply: The frequency of freezes is so extremely low and doesn't happen at all when the system is idle that I can't do th...

Re: Need help debugging system freezes

well. thanks for hanging out in this forum and trying to help people who ask for it. I just don't feel helped but just told to not customize my system.

Re: Need help debugging system freezes

well, sorry, but that won't work. The freeze doesn't happen when the system is idle, it doesn't happen when I use the system for a few minutes, but mostly it works fine for hours. It didn't crash since I posted my first message in this thread, though it did crash two times in the hour before posting...

Re: Cursor freeze on Mint 19

I have the same problem with the touchpad randomly stopping to work, although I'm still on Linux Mint 18.3 on my Asus N550JV laptop. I found I can restore touchpad movement by either disabling and reenabling the touchpad with the Fn+F9 hardware keyboard combination, or by switching to another virtua...

Wifi: Broadcom BCM4306 rev3 (Laptop Dell Inspiron 9100)

Hey there! I wanted to revive an old laptop of mine, a Dell Inspiron 9100. I tried both Linux Mint XFCE 17.1 and 18.2, and they both work okey in general, but the wifi makes problems. I still got an Windows XP installation on that machine which works fine but it's quite scary to connect that to the ...

Re: Linux Minut 17 Freezing

my hangs do not require a reboot, I simply need to switch to a tty and back. My power settings contain only one setting that fits your description, "Suspend when inactive for" which is configured to "Never" for both on power and on battery. Also my freezes don't happen after a long period of inactiv...

I've just dug out my "old" laptop (an Asus UX32VD bought 2012) which has been running Ubuntu 17.1 - I've upgraded it to 17.2 and installed all available updates and now I'm experience these freezes about once every 10 minutes or so (switching to a tty and back brings everything to live again).

[SOLVED] GeForce GT 730 crashes

Okey so here's another update: on Ubuntu 15.10 using the proprietary Nvidia drivers does only work stable over longer periods of time if I only use the machine remotely via ssh. I think it might actually be getting worse over time (so the time it takes to crash decreases) Running Ubuntu 15.10 with t...
