Re: Thread for those experiencing freezes in Maya/Mate.

Same here, 3.3.6 SOLVED it, but after moving to 3.4.6, the freeze came back. I'm sticking with it though, due to it's general superiority and much less frequent freezes than 3.2.6. I just couldn't stand to see my system idling at 57C. The much lower temperature of 45C is irresistible.

Re: Can't remove firefox without installing other debris?

Thanks for the reply. The explanation suffices, but I still fear a future pullulation of dependencies; though I guess this forum is the wrong tree to bark up.

Re: Thread for those experiencing freezes in Maya/Mate.

Thanks ingeva, I've tried your advice and hope it works. There is also something worth mentioning, though it is a bit confusing. I had gone without a freeze for nearly a week of constant use, until... Until I did a partial update, which included a new addition of firefox. Suddenly, the system was fr...

Re: Thread for those experiencing freezes in Maya/Mate.

I opened another instance of Firefox through the menu as you suggested and had no problems. I have little doubt that it may do it for you, but this is probably all way beyond browsers. Freezes continue for me, but rarely and seemingly randomly.

Re: CPU Idles at 31% - Never Below

For some reason I don't remember cpufreq monitor applet ever (at least not for me) being fixed on any particular number when set to OnDemand -- and it's been years!. I guess I got confused by taking it literally, especially after sensors displayed my core temperature at 52C when relatively idle. I f...

Re: Thread for those experiencing freezes in Maya/Mate.

Running Maya with Mate and occasionally having system freezes where all but the mouse-cursor becomes dysfunctional. The cursor has movement but no effect and no other input of any sort is accepted, of course, including Ctrl-Alt-Backspace and power button. Hard reboot via sustained holding of the pow...

Point well taken, but I am tired of it all for now and will let someone else open the thread. I shan't post here again.

Re: CPU Idles at 31% - Never Below

I knew this was coming and refrained from prophylactically defending myself against it. I know quite well how to use top, but find it silly when System Monitor is a mere click away and does not update itself at rates prohibiting coherent examination. Don't get me wrong, I love CLI and kneel humbly b...

CPU Idles at 31% - Never Below

My CPU idles at 31% with a pretty constant temperature of 47c. I presently have CPU Frequency Scaling active and set to On Demand . The available spectrum ranges from 800MHz to 2.5GHz and aside from my i5 never indicating "Turbo Boost", it never scales below 800MHz either, regardless of processes. I...

Re: System freezing - Mint 13 Cinnamon

Hi, This doesn't seem to be related to cinnamon nor to mate, i have installed xfce4 and it hangs the same as soon as I open a new page with firefox. Reconfigured MDM and tried 32 and 64 bits version of linux mint 13 Mate and it gives the same. From what I see, the issue is either related to the vid...

Re: System freezing - Mint 13 Cinnamon

Thanks. It seems to much for me. I will wait for an official solution. Until then I will be working with ugly MATE I am beginning to feel like a ghost. That comment and another a few places below it, indicates that users are still under the impression that this bug excludes Mate. For the many'th ti...

Having the same issue. I see something about "broken pipe", nm-? (network-manager ?), and occasionally pulse-audio.

"There seem to be quite a few variants of the system freezing, which are probably completely unrelated. Hopefully the above will help those out with multiple graphic cards.

IMHO it smells like a cinnamon bug... No, it smells nothing like Cinnamon, but of Mint. I am using Mate and suffer freezes every single day.
