Re: Window appears to be in foreground, but interacts as if in background...

I am having the same issue. It's happening on two different computers. Started around Linux Mint Mate 19.1, but still happening with 19.3, at least from upgrade. Haven't tried a fresh install. The workaround is to click on the the window that appears to be in the foreground somewhere where there isn...

Re: Synaptic message after package install.

I'm having the same issue. I just upgraded from Linux Mint Mate 17.3 to 18 using mintupgrade. Now any time I use the update manager to update anything I get messages similar to: W: Can't drop privileges for downloading as file '/var/cache/apt/archives/partial/init-system-helpers_1.29ubuntu3_all.deb'...

Re: How To install Epson Scanner Drivers

Hi Resandro, Great that it worked for you. As I indicated, I did find and install both packages from the EPSON site. However scanimage -L hangs every other time I run it. and sane-find-scanner doesn't find the the scanner, either complaining about permissions if I run it normally or complaining "cou...

Re: All Mint Editions Intel I217V Ethernet Hangs on Z87 Boar

Hitchhiker, Thanks again. I flashed the new UEFI, but things are the same. You were correct that the update doesn't address my issues. Do you have any suggestions for where I might look for additional help? You seem to be up this stuff, at least more than me. I've nosed around the e1000e driver sour...

Re: All Mint Editions Intel I217V Ethernet Hangs on Z87 Boar

Anybody have any suggestions? What is etiquette here? Am I allowed to keep asking in the hopes that someone knowledgable will take an interest. It's pretty clearly some BIOS/kernel/driver interaction. When I suspend the machine goes to a sleep state, but then reboots rather than resumes after I hit ...

Hitchhiker, Thank you. You pointed me to exactly what I need to make the new driver load on boot, which is in addition to following the Intel instructions to do a $ sudo update-initramfs -u -k all Unfortunately the new driver does not solve my problems.

Re: All Mint Editions Intel I217V Ethernet Hangs on Z87 Boar

I am confused about what version of the e1000e driver I am using. I went the Intel website and downloaded the latest version of the driver, 2.5.4, and followed the instructions there. If I clear CMOS and boot my system so that I get an ethernet connection I see the following lines in dmesg indicatin...

Re: All Mint Editions Intel I217V Ethernet Hangs on Z87 Boar

P.S. Fedora 20 Beta has the same problem which is what makes me fairly certain it's an upstream kernel driver/issue. I will also say that all of Mint 13, 16, and Fedora also have problems with shutdown, suspend, and restart on this hardware. The machine is fast, so it's not that big a deal having to...

All Mint Editions Intel I217V Ethernet Hangs on Z87 Board

This has to be an upstream kernel/driver problem, but let me post here to see if others have the problem, and if anyone know where to get help upstream or knows of workarounds.

Re: [Solved] Update Manager is broken (miniupdate) M13 cinna

How did the bad lines land in sources.lst in the first place? What do all the IGN lines mean? Also, I was able to use synaptic to find the closer, faster umd.edu mirror for the Mint packages, but it doesn't seem to be able to do something similar for the Ubuntu packages which are bigger and more num...

I did a fresh install of M13 Mate and got the same bad /etc/apt/sources.lst file. I edited it to remove the bad entries. Things are are better but I'm still not sure they're right. $ cat /etc/apt/sources.lst deb http://mirror.umd.edu/linuxmint/packages/ maya main upstream import backport deb http://...
