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,

Mike.

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'...

Re: 18.3 Login screen resolution 'changing' main screen resolution...

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! I tried: sudo apt install mdm xscreensaver ... but get an error - any suggestions: Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done Pack...

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...

Just another update. Since upgrading to 4.10, I installed the ukuu kernel update utility (which automates the update process) and have been regularly updating the kernel upon each official release. Currently running kernel 4.13.6. I'm running LM 18.2 xfce, 64-bit and have had zero issues so far - th...

Re: Help with Google Earth

Same issue here - running on an AMD Radeon HD 7570 card. Linux Mint 18.2 xfce, 64-bit. Works fine under Virtual Box with a Linux Mint 18.2 xfce 64-bit guest though. Don't think it's related to the kernel - I've tried it with the LM 18.2 default (4.8 something?) and also the latest 4.12.08 - same pro...

Re: LM 18.2 & Google Earth 7.3 - blank screen

Thanks for the replies guys - I thought I'd be on my own with this one! There was a 7.1.8 version (non-Pro from memory) as I had it running on my LM 18.0 Virtual Box system. The 7.3 "Pro" version also works fine on a Virtual Box guest install of Linux Mint 18.2, but on my real hardware, it...

How to incorporate p7zip actions in Thunar right-click menus?

Hi guys,

I have p7zip-full installed, but have no idea of how to use it as the default application for archives inside Thunar.

Ideally, I'd like to incorporate it in the right-click menus inside Thunar, so I can easily add and extract .7z archive.

Cheers,

Mike.

Re: Update manager / updating package not installed

An old thread, but I've just noticed the same issue.

Recent updates include Chromium Browser, which I do no have installed (and have never installed).

What could be the cause of this?

I haven't examined other pending updates, but I might start to look a bit closer from now on.

Mike.
