Re: Mint Cinnamon 15 - Mouse Scroll Stops

My mouse's scroll doesn't work from boot. I use gpointing-device-settings to get it working. Might want to give it a go.

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install gpointing-device-settings
I have to "reset" it each time I boot, log-off then -in.

Re: Proc Folder

I am very glad that I read this. I was trying to figure out how a folder could take up 1.4T of a 100G hard drive.

Good info to have!

Re: Black Screen after login

Hi, Question of preferences! Grtz! :D That's absolutely right! And the best thing about Linux. The more I use it, and play around with the different desktops and the settings on all of them, I'm further amazed by the freedom of Linux. Don't like Mate, try Cinnamon. Don't like that, try Enlightenmen...

Re: Black Screen after login

When you click on Session in the Login Window you can also choose for 'Ubuntu' that is if you installed everything for Ubuntu! I mix up the two so I can work in Linux Mint (Cinnamon) and Ubuntu (with Unity). Works real nicely! Ofcourse it would be nice if Clem Lefebvre would manage to speed up Cinn...

Re: Advice regarding Mint 13 and kernel 3.9.x

I've updated my Kernel several times using the instructions that I found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8K6D77_REs8 It goes on for a bit, but works every time for me. I'm a relatively new user, but the questions that I have: Is updating the Kernel/Grub Menu the same in Virtual Box the same as...

Re: Black Screen after login

I tried pulling the video card and going with the onboard graphics. That was ugly. The web-based greeter kept crashing, but I got it going long enough to change it. Finally got it to boot a couple of times and the blank screen after log-in was significantly shorter. Not sure what I can do about it, ...

Re: Black Screen after login

if I'm not mistaken, on virtualbox cinnamon using 2d fallback mode automatically. this could be the reason why cinnamon load faster on virtualbox. I guess it will also work for disk installation too. That's exactly correct. There's a pop-up that shows on the desktop when the VB version initially lo...

Re: LM 14 to 15 in place upgrade - reads Ubuntu

@Sioux: I hear you. I had all of those little annoying problems, and got rid of them either by removing the offending programs, or simply removing them from the menu. Had to load LM15 in VirtualBox so that I could know that I was removing the proper programs. I know that Mint is based on Ubuntu, but...

mate use different compositor so that it doesn't affected by muffin. I'm afraid we'll need to wait till cinnamon comes to fix this bug. I'm using readahead-fedora to make it a lil bit faster but the differences isn't significant. you can try using preload if you want. That's what I was afraid of. F...

Re: Black Screen after login

I got the same thing on my in-place upgrade. At someone's suggestion, I upgraded the kernel to 3.9 and it helped dramatically. However, I then upgraded the Nvidia drivers to 319 and the long wait came back. At this point, I have no suggestions. When I look at the chart from BootChart it appears that...

LM 14 to 15 in place upgrade - reads Ubuntu

I just finished an in-place upgrade from LM 14 to 15 (Cinnamon). It went very smoothly, though it took a long time. Rebooted and my GRUB menu changed. The first two entries are "Ubuntu" and "Advanced Settings for Ubuntu." I went ahead and chose Ubuntu and everything looks like th...
