Re: CANON MP150 hangs while printing after recent updates

I've got a Canon IP4500 and it takes forever to start printing, and if I have several jobs to print, it doesn't print any of them. I've been fiddling with it for an hour now, it only prints if I unplug/plug in the power cable and even then it prints only one page. When I open the printer dialog and ...

Re: System freezing - Mint 13 Cinnamon

Installing Java didn't do anything for me, but after that I installed LightDM and so far I am unable to freeze the system deliberately using the table method with Writer. Will report back if anything changes. For some reason, after installing LightDM it has been even more unstable. Not even Ctrl+Al...

OK, I did a clean install of LM13 Cinnamon on my PC (all my previous post were regarding my laptop). It's been running for three hours straight with no problems.

Re: System freezing - Mint 13 Cinnamon

Well, it started freezing almost immediately after the install. The only thing I added right after installation was docky. That's when I began noticing the freezing. At first I thought it was Docky's fault, but since that first day I haven't been using it at all and the problem is still there. Apar...

Re: System freezing - Mint 13 Cinnamon

There's something pretty easy that everyone could try: burn a DVD with the iso image of Maya Cinnamon and just boot your machine with it. Then use it for a while and try to reproduce the conditions that fires the freeze. If there's no freeze using the Live-DVD, then it's a post-install (software) p...

Re: System freezing - Mint 13 Cinnamon

Final release, clean install. My laptop is a Lenovo 3000 N200 with Windows XP, Xubuntu 12.04 (also clean install) and LM 13 Cinnamon. Could you list the basic specs of your machine and was it the 32 or 64 bit LM 13/Cinnamon release? The 3000 N200 came with different hardware setups. Thanks :) 32 bi...

Re: System freezing - Mint 13 Cinnamon

Question: Are all of your Maya/Cinnamon installs of the Final release or are some upgrades from the RC? And in the case of the Final release, were they clean installs? That could be a determining factor. Final release, clean install. My laptop is a Lenovo 3000 N200 with Windows XP, Xubuntu 12.04 (a...

Had the same exact issue. No sure fire reason I could tell. Happened once when I opened a second session of Chrome, again when I saved a doc in LibreOffice... Memory use has been fine... Same machine ran Ubuntu 12.04 without a hitch. I noticed in Synaptic that the kernal and some x packages were ma...
