Re: Workspace switcher "visual represenation" missing

That explains it, thanks! On the working machine the panel is 32 pixels. On the one that wasn't working it was 28. But changing it up to 32 doesn't seem to help. Looks like I need it to be 38 pixels high at least, probably because I have a second monitor configured to be at the bottom. Do you have a...

Re: Workspace switcher "visual represenation" missing

It says it can't be removed because it's a system applet.

Workspace switcher "visual represenation" missing

Hello I've upgraded to Mint 19.2 recently on two machines. This problem only shows up on one of the machines: I have the workspace switcher configured to "Type of display: A visual represenation of the workspaces". But it just shows me the workspace numbers, no previews of the applications. On the o...

Re: How to disable screen locking on lid closed in Cinnamon in Linux Mint 19

Thanks guys! To clarify for others who might run into this problem, this is what I had to do: * Edit /etc/UPower/UPower.conf and change the IgnoreLid to true: IgnoreLid=true * Then edit /etc/systemd/logind.conf, uncomment the HandleLidSwitch and change it to ignore: HandleLidSwitch=ignore * Then reb...

Re: How to get /etc/pm/sleep.d hooks to work

Thanks gm10, that seems to work perfectly and the script only needed a little bit of adapting. FYI, here it is: #!/bin/bash # Use this by making a symlink # ln -s /home/andrew/programs/nfs_suspend.sh /lib/systemd/system-sleep/ # function umountNfs { echo "Unmounting /home/andrew/data (whether it's m...

[Solved] How to get /etc/pm/sleep.d hooks to work

Hello I used to have a script in /etc/pm/sleep.d that unmounted network filesystems on suspend. Very handy. But in Mint 19 it doesn't seem to work any more. I've troubleshooted it enough to find that if I manually call pm-suspend it works but when I go through the Mint UI - it doesn't call my script...

Re: How to disable screen locking on lid closed in Cinnamon in Linux Mint 19

I can chmod 0 /usr/bin/cinnamon-screensaver and that keeps it from locking when the lid is closed, but that also prevents it from locking when the laptop is suspended.

Re: How to disable screen locking on lid closed in Cinnamon in Linux Mint 19

Has anyone found a solution yet? I'm pretty sure it's the screensaver that turns on, but I don't know how to get stop it.

How to disable screen locking on lid closed in Cinnamon in Linux Mint 19

Hello I had this configured to work as I wanted in Mint 18.3 but I don't remember how I did it and am having a hard time figuring it out. What I want is to disable the feature where the screen locks when my laptop's lid is closed. It's fine if the screen turns off but I don't want the laptop to slee...

Re: Profiling startup (especially cinnamon login time)

Nope, this is not a virtual machine. It's a VM host. Strange that showed up in the critical chain. I ran systemd-analyze critical-chain again just now and virtualbox did not show up at all. Same deal. I'll ask on a Slackware forum also to see if maybe the server is at fault (I upgraded both the Slac...

Re: Profiling startup (especially cinnamon login time)

Cool, thanks for the advice! I'll try to remember those commands for the future, but I'll probably have to come back here to remember :) I used a stopwatch and found this: 15s for the initrd 26s for the systemd services 1m50s for cinnamon to finish starting The following seems to confirm that the sy...

Profiling startup (especially cinnamon login time)

Hi I was excited to see in the release notes for Mint 18 that supposedly the boot time was improved. I would have much appreciated that though it wasn't a dealbreaker for me in the past. Unfortunately I found that every step of the boot has instead slowed down :( There are some clearly separate chun...

Re: Changes to password policies

I feel like I'm feeding a troll but ok, I'll bite. Can you please tell me how many machines you use keepassx on and how you synchronise the password database between them?

Re: Changes to password policies

Your first post also reveals, that there is a problem on your system, otherwise you could use a simple keyboard-shortcut for login in with KPX. And if you don't want to solve your problem you can also use the password-manager of your browser. Telling that this is too complicated to do or that you s...

Re: Changes to password policies

That's kind of what I mean. Linux Mint is awesome because someone else's idea of what's good for me isn't crammed down my throat. I can manage my own password policy as I see fit, and as long as it doesn't hurt other people - I don't see why I shouldn't be allowed to. For example I use a technically...

Re: Changes to password policies

At the time you signed up they were using inferior passwords on inferior software and look where that got us. Where? Are you telling me the servers were compromised because the forum users' passwords were too weak? I seriously doubt it. Given how I don't have any sort of privileged access to the se...

The parts I listed in my first post. I guarantee I would not have signed up to this forum if those were the password policies in place at the time.

Re: Changes to password policies

If the point of Linux Mint wasn't to be better than the alternatives - noone would be using it. One of the greatest things about Mint is how the team really works on what's good for the users rather than whats's "correct". Cinnamon is good. The default Gnome3 shell is "correct". Which one are you us...

Please change your mind about the password policy - for the good of the community you're trying to protect. No! :wink: Heh. Well it's your site, you do what you want of course :) But I encourage you to save the logs from last year and a few months from now - compare to see what happened to user acq...
