Re: KALARM .... yet again ...

figured it out, just needed to unpack 'kde pim' which installs akonadi, and all is now well. haven't seen an app yet that's as good as kalarm for pop up notifications. Thanks for this!!! For Mint 17.3 I installed Kalarm, Korganizer and then kdepim from Synaptic. Works perfectly, including the timez...

Re: No picture thumbnail in Nemo on Linux Mint 16 Cinnamon

Deleting .thumbnails from home directory and creating link named ~/.thumbnails to ~/.cache/thumbnails solved my problem. Right click the ~/.cache/thumbnails directory, use 'Make Link', rename newly created link to .thumbnails, copy it to home directory. Thanks for the clues. Thank you! Thank you!~ ...

Re: Screen requires password after wakeup

In my case, same problems, I discovered the Cinnamon Control Panel was not loaded for me as part of the update. Went to Synaptic and loaded it after search on Cinnamon. Now, my screen lock works as it should, before it kept asking for passwd all the time, could not stop that whatever I did. After lo...

Re: HELP, Upadate Manager broke OS this morning

The major shock for me was to discover that there is no way to roll back updates . The OS basically self-destructed. Whatever this xorg is, it basically told the user, "Me break it, you fix it" and it just spit out some techno-gibberish. One choise is not to use level 2 and higher updates...

Re: HELP, Upadate Manager broke OS this morning

I have backports enabled, do you? This update also included the new MATE 16 components. So far everything looks equal or better, except for the MATE panel 1.6.1, app buttons are too thin, in the age of large taskbar buttons this hearkens back to Windows95. In the previous version, app button height...

Re: HELP, Upadate Manager broke OS this morning

ok, that works, it booted. The whole GUI has been reset though, panel messed up (no more fat buttons at 50px height), keyboard shortcuts all gone, preferences gone, etc. Login is simplified, that's better. Must have been a bad script, screwed up a few thousand (or a few million) machines. Yep, it m...

Re: HELP, Upadate Manager broke OS this morning

Right, this morning it went from 304.88 to 304.108 Wouldn't "apt-get remove nvidia-304" remove both of them? or do you need to do "apt-get remove nvidia-304.88"? I didn't specify .108 or .88, just 304. Apparently it removed both of them. I then rebooted and everything worked OK....

Re: HELP, Upadate Manager broke OS this morning

Same here, after doing normal updates this morning, 12/18. Get message that X server failed to start. Tried a couple of things googling around, no progress for me on this. Never had problem since Mint 13 first released.
