Re: btrfs issue

Interesting. I've never been able to get LMDE 201204 to format to btrfs using the installer which is why I went the route in the link above. I actually had to check and see if there was a respin of LMDE after you mentioned latest iso. btrfs option is always greyed out when I use the installer. By u...

Re: A most basic question

well, it remounts read only so any check will be useless. you can run try running fsck from live media?

And for boot errors type dmesg after booting and see if anything stands out.

Re: A most basic question

Not sure, seems the system is somehow completely borked. I'm not sure what to suggest you to try at this point. Can you post contents of fstab? You've said it fails to mount filesystem?

When you install from last live media and format to btrfs, it has fsck enabled in fstab and boot fails every time.

Many thanks, that works fine
Did you install meta cinnamon or mate as instructed in the up5 information?

Re: Important fixes idea

I'm definitely interested to have more updates coming our way. I think that UP should be confined to mint packages, like cinnamon, mate, etc. but not on debian internals. Those should be pushed more often. And I would like more up to date libreoffice, firefox, thunderbird. There were several securit...

If you remove "quiet" from grub parameters, you will see verbose output also during shutdown. Maybe it will give some hints on what is going on.

Re: Something continues running after shutdown post UP5

Thanks ... unfortunately this doesn't appear to have worked. I've checked the settings very carefully and now the system reports: [info] Will now halt. [ 51.229165] System halted. However the machine just sits still running. (I think the changes are correct as I've noticed that the suspend option i...

Superb!! Have tried this a couple of times at it seems to work ...... great :-) How do I make this change permanent? Open terminal, write: sudo nano /etc/default/grub then find the line GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="" and write acpi=off inside the quotes. Ctrl+X to save, Y to confirm. Then run sudo update-gr...

Re: Something continues running after shutdown post UP5

Sounds like a great idea ..... as I've found grub2 hard to understand, I tend to use GUIs such as startupmanager. Unfortunately there is no option in startupmanager to edit acpi=off. Is there a GUI tool I can use to do this as I don't want to break my system?? (I have used grub customizer in Ubuntu...

I hope there is a solution as the only way to shutdown is to hard power off (not a long term solution).
Can you pass 'acpi=off' to kernel and see if it happens again?

It happens in MATE as well as Gnome3 in my LMDE. The link you gave kinda similar to my problems so ITS a SECURITY ISSUE AFTERALL. But I don't understand how come ArchLinux Gnome3 dont have such problem it works there. maybe something is missing in LMDE. Bug or a feature, depends. It is fast user sw...

Re: users can login to others running accounts using CTRL+AL

Ok.

You're switching users from panel? I just stumbled on this, admittedly it is not a bug in gnome3 or gdm3 but its a hint:
https://bugs.launchpad.net/lightdm/+bug/904006

It happens in MATE or Gnome3 or both?

I'm really at loss here. I will try to explore more but seems that most of options are exhausted. If there is anything else, I'll ask, still believe it is due to some misconfiguration than anything else. I cannot reproduce it at all. What is your configuration? Running Gnome3?

Re: users can login to others running accounts using CTRL+AL

Can you install dconf editor and see under org>gnome>desktop>lockdown if "disable-lock-screen" is enabled?

EDIT: you should also have gconf editor available, not sure if it there by default.
