Re: Right-click and menus stop working in Konsole terminal in Linux mint 18 mate edition

It's little wonder you're experiencing problems. Konsole is a native KDE application, not a MATE application. So what are you saying?

My question is, is this because Linux Mint is set to use a TCP connection and because I used UDP it conflicted?
No. UDP is the correct protocol.
how can I remedy this the next time I make that UDP selection?
Try a different server.

When VM exits does it release the full memory it was using " 2 gB " back to Linux Mint ?
Yes, it should but the linux kernel can actually hang on to it until it's needed. This fools a lot of people into thinking they have a memory leak when it's just the kernel caching.
