Mint Update - Hash Sum mismatch on Kernel update...

Hi Guys, Ran into an issue with Mint Update on my new LM 19.0 xfce 64-bit install. When update tries to install the 4.15.0-32 kernel update, if gives the message shown below. It appears that the archives have been updated with files for the 4.15.0-32.35 kernel update, but the checksums must be for t...

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,

Mike.

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.

Re: [SOLVED] 18.3 Login screen resolution 'changing' main screen resolution...

I discovered that the issue wasn't with LM, but rather with VirtualBox (my LM 18.3 install was a virtual machine).

The latest update to VB (5.2.4) fixed the issue.

Cheers,

Ah, okay. Both users are admin-level atm. Not a huge issue now I understand the workings.

Re: Update Manager showing different updates for different users?

Hi guys, Finally discovered the reason. In my original account, I'd blacklisted a number of programs and utilities. In the new account, these weren't on any blacklist. This strikes me as a bit of an issue, since the new user could inadvertently install unwanted updates, which the original user didn'...

The other issue I have the (I guess) LightDM is that there don't seem to be any login window 'themes' as there were with MDM...

It's really just visual 'fluff', but the extra options and login window layouts were quite nice.

Thanks for the reply... So it's LightMDM that's the issues - I've heard of issues with this. I'm glad I'm not the only one!

No, it was 'tongue-in-cheek' - wishing that xfce was released SOONER :-)

So you want the team to hold Cinnamon back until XFCE is finished? How does that help anyone?

[SOLVED] Update Manager showing different updates for different users?

Hi, I've recently set up my Linux Mint 18.2/3 64-bit xfce system to have another user account - previously I only ever used it as a single-user system. I've noticed that when I run update manager while in the new user account, a new bunch of updates are showing as available. even though on the other...
