Re: Account email address leaked to spammers

Thanks for the quick reply and very helpful info! The mail I got doesn't look like the test mail you sent me, but haveibeenpwned indeed says that my email address here is affected. Sorry for the noise, with a bit more research I probably could have found this out before posting, and you're right, I ...

Account email address leaked to spammers

I have reason to believe that the forum is leaking user email addresses to spammers. My reason for believing this is that I use customized email addresses for each account I create, and I just got spam email to the address I used for the account here. Has anybody else experienced this? Can I do anyt...

Re: Window List only shows windows of current screen

Thanks very much for that great tip, it worked! Now I have at least a list of the windows on my second monitor.

I'd still prefer to see all the windows on the window list on the first monitor, but I can live with that solution for now.

Re: "kernel NULL pointer dereference" every now and then at

If you're using the update manager, kernel updates don't happen with level 1, 2, and 3 updates. I'm sorry to report that I don't know what that means. Do I have to (Or can I) do something special to enable kernel updates? I wonder though, if it's a hardware issue with your RAM, or motherboard, etc....

Re: Window List only shows windows of current screen

Thanks billhannah, sounds like a decent solution, I will give it a try in the evening! I don't understand that not more people are seeing this - is it really so few people using a multi-monitor configuration with Mint? And why are panels not draggable? Is it because of the youngness of Mate? Anybody...

Re: "kernel NULL pointer dereference" every now and then at

What version of mint are you running? Linux Mint 13 Maya with all the updates the automatic update tool could find. The initial problem happened once more in the meantime. I once got the same error when booting the computer with a KVM (keyboard, video, mouse) switch attached. Once I updated the ker...

Re: Window List only shows windows of current screen

Yup, I usually set my windows to not cross screen boundaries (no roll-over at screen edges) and only show the current workspace --the window list (icons(rectangles) or names)) appears on the menu bar at the bottom left side of the screen: default position Whether I set the window list to showing on...

Re: Window List only shows windows of current screen

Thanks very much for your input! Unfortunately, it's not a matter of workspaces, though; I have a workspace switcher on my panel, the workspaces are extra broad, and it shows all my application windows (also the ones on the second screen) inside the first workspace. And anyway, the window list is co...

Window List only shows windows of current screen

Hi, I have a slight problem with my multi-monitor configuration: The window list on the primary monitor only shows the windows which are mainly on that screen; if I move them to the second screen they disappear. Therefore the windows being positioned there are somehow "dangling" without appearing in...

Re: "kernel NULL pointer dereference" every now and then at

bump... nobody an idea where I should start looking? I've got really no idea here, please help me out! Edit: Just happened again. When I'm sitting in front of the machine, it's not such a big issue (although I still would like to find out the root cause); after a reboot it starts up just fine. It is...

"kernel NULL pointer dereference" every now and then at boot

I've been using Mint for approx. 3 months now; every now and then (have seen it approx. 5-10 times now, but didn't count), my PC won't start up normally into Mint, but will stop with a "kernel NULL pointer dereference". No idea what's going on there - what can I do to find out more about why this ha...
