Re: Pinta crashes in Mint 19 Cinnamon

Yep, it bombs on LM 19.1 xfce 64-bit too....

A real shame, as it's perfect from simple image and photo editing. GIMP is a pain and so counter-intuitive.

Giving the Mono workaround a go, but it's installing a shed-load of crap...

Re: Linux Mint 19.1 “Tessa” Xfce released!

Just upgraded from LM 19.0 64-bit xfce to 19.1 - the process went without a hitch. One minor annoyance is that in program window title-bars, when the window is maximised, the program icon (at the far left of the title-bar) is too far to the left (by around 4 or 5 pixels?) and appears right at the ed...

Re: Linux Mint 19.1 “Tessa” Xfce – BETA Release

Interesting - one of my local Mint mirrors (AARNet) is showing 19.1 as released.

The ISOs are all dated 17-Dec-2018...

Have they jumped the gun, or is it correct?

Cheers,

Mike.

Re: 4.14.8 kernel on LM 18.3 xfce 64-bit - works well...

Another update - not suggesting everyone rush out and try it - just FYI really... I've been running LM 19.0 xfce 64-bit since it was launched earlier in the year and have been updating to the latest kernel version via the UKUU program. Currently running 4.19.8 I've had no issues on any of the kernel...

Thanks for the input guys, and apologies for the late response.

Re: How to upgrade to Linux Mint 19

The timeshift step is a real ball-ache... Finding enough space was a drama, then it took an age (over 3 hours on my VB installation).

Surely timeshift should be optional for those users that already have backup/restore procedures in-place?

Re: Linux Mint 19 “Tara” Xfce – BETA Release

@GeneBenson, Thanks for the excellent feedback and info.

I've also noticed that any progress-bar indicators (particularly in Update Manager and Synaptic) are much 'thinner' (about half the width compared to LM18.3) than previously.

Re: Linux Mint 19 “Tara” Xfce – BETA Release

I've also come across another glitch with the new volume control. When I mouse-over the volume icon, I get two pop-up volume control bars at the top of the screen. (see attached pic). Is this the place I should be reporting issues such as this? Cheers, Mike. http://sites.google.com/site/fishvictoria...

Re: Linux Mint 19 “Tara” Xfce – BETA Release

Same here. It looks like they've added a separate notification icon for the volume control (looks big and clunky). The old volume icon used to be an 'indicator' under the xfce4-indicator-plugin, but it doesn't seem to display in LM 19.0 - if anyone know how to get it back, please let me know. Cheers...

I have it (64-bit xfce) installed under VirtualBox 5.2.12 on Windows 10 Pro - all working fine. Now, onto LM 19.0 itself - All VERY minor niggles... 1: Don't like the default theme (Mint-Y?). Mint-X Blue is my fave. Plus the Kokodi theme for the window manager is by far the best - it's one of the fe...

Re: Kernel upgrade error - dkms / ndiswrapper

Oh, no offence taken... I've been running the mainline Kernels (a bad habit I've gotten into!) since Mint 18,2 and have had no issues or glitches at all, until 4.15. I asked here, rather than on a more generic Linux forum, as there seem to be very many knowledgeable members here who may have an idea...

Kernel upgrade error - dkms / ndiswrapper

Hi guys, Just hit an error when upgrading the Linux Kernel from 4.14.x to 4.15.x in Linux Mint 18.3 - been upgrading the Kernel for 12 months without any issues. See the attached screenshot for the build-error (couldn't do a text-capture for some reason)... The errors are related to dkms/ndiswrapper...

Re: 4.14.8 kernel on LM 18.3 xfce 64-bit - works well...

Once again - another update.

After a clean install of LM 18.3 xfce 64-bit, I installed Ukuu and then installed kernel 4.14.8.

Been running for a few days now with no issues at all.

Cheers,

Re: Linux Mint 18.3 “Sylvia” Xfce released!

I upgraded (via the Update Manger) my 18.2 xfce to 18.3, but I have noticed that the Login Window Manager wasn't changed to the version that appears with a clean install of LM18.3.

Does that mean that the upgrade process leaves MDM and doesn't replaced it with LightDM?

Cheers,

Mike.
