Re: LibreOffice file open dialog box

Now that's odd. Both devices are running the same Mint, all updates applied (aside from going to Mint 18.2)? I ran into this some time ago, so I don't think that it's a new setting. I am running LO 5.4.0.3 as well, but I had this happen before now: https://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=47&...

Re: LibreOffice file open dialog box

I did this once, too, and it drove me nuts. In any LibreOffice application, hit Tools > Options... In the Options dialogue, under LibreOffice on the left, choose General. On the right, uncheck (or check, depending on your preference) the "Use LibreOffice dialogs" under Open/Save Dialogs. T...

Applets won't install or update

I was trying to update some of the applets on Cinnamon and each of them failed. I also tried to install new applets that I had never installed before and got the same error message: An error occurred during installation or updating. You may wish to report this incident to the developer of cpufreq@mt...

csd-background memory usage

Since upgrading to 18.2 Cinnamon, I've noticed in Top and Conky that the process csd-background's memory usage grows throughout the day. It starts out very low, but then climbs to 80-90 megs as time goes on. I realize that that's a pretty small amount - particularly considering i have 16 gigs instal...

Re: 18.1 disapearing desktop icons?

Found another problem: If I right-click on the primary monitor and select Create New Document -> Empty Document I get an icon with the name selected so that I can rename it; the behavior I expect. If I do the same on the my secondary monitor it appears as though nothing happens. If I hit F5 the icon...

Re: Windows Open when afk

Do you own a cat?
an error that read "error copying something.conf, no read/write permissions."
If you can get the name of the something that will probably help a bit.

Re: 18.1 disapearing desktop icons?

I am on an SSD and having the same problems. 17 was also on SSD. The icons on my secondary monitor never appear on boot. If I click on that desktop (so that it has focus) then hit F5 they come back. I'm assuming that that refreshes the desktop. Much easier than restarting Nemo. Mine will disappear p...

Share without Samba?

My basic understanding is that I need Samba running to share files with other computers running Windows. I have Samba up and running because, at one time, I had a pretty even split of Windows PCs and Linux PCs as well as some Android phones and tablets. Since that time, we are all pretty much primar...

Re: Nemo very slow to move files - More Problems

I'm glad to see that it's not just me. Well, not glad, really, but you see what I mean. I seem to remember this happening in LM16, then it stopped through the 17s, and now it's back. It's more than a little disheartening.

Re: Nemo very slow to move files - More Problems

The hang on moving files with Nemo still persists. I was moving 150 files and when it paused at the dialogue box I hit the Stop symbol. It took Nemo about 20 seconds to stop the operation. It had moved a few files at that point, but it left the remaining files in place. Any further ideas are appreci...

Re: Samba server not loading in Mint 18 MATE [SOLVED]

Just asking for a little clarification: If I'm reading all this correctly, if I have Samba installed my boot time will remain slow because it has to wait for NetworkManager-wait-online.service to do its thing. The only way around that is to remove Samba - which I absolutely cannot do unless there's ...

Re: Nemo very slow to move files - More Problems

(unless the slowdown is extreme) It is. Moving 120 files (by way of Drag and Drop, or right-click -> Move to...) into a different directory on the same partition can take as long as 45 seconds in Nemo. Doing the same with PCManFM or the mv command takes nearly no time. Nemo gets stuck on a dialogue...

Re: Nemo very slow to move files - More Problems

My sincerest apologies for not making the situation more clear. I should know better than to use HDD and partition interchangeably. Moving files on Home works as expected - nearly instantly. I might think that this is hard drive failure issue if things didn't work properly with mv and PCManFM. Just ...

Re: Nemo very slow to move files - More Problems

Out of curiosity, what happens if you move files or a folder full of files from a command line with the mv command? The files go right away without an error or hesitation. I used the mv command to move roughly 2,000 files this morning and it only took a second or so. Also, PCmanFM still moves every...

Re: Nemo very slow to move files - More Problems

Thanks, Cosmo, but unfortunately this didn't help. The behavior is the same - it takes around 45 seconds to move 120 files totalling less than 100 megs. If I copy/paste it's nearly immediate. Why do you use aptitude? I wasn't really aware that I was. I'm assuming that aptitude is different from some...

I've developed a new problem, now. On each reboot my desktop icons realign themselves vertically to the left hand side of the screen. If I move them back where I want them then reboot, they go back to. Move them where I want them, then hit F5 and they go back to the left. Any time I open Nemo, every...

HP printer, maybe? That sounds like a Windows service to me.
