Re: Getting Rid Of "Other Places" In Save Dialog?

I'm with InkKnife on this one. I know exactly what you mean and why it's annoying. The new "Save As..." dialogue utterly annoying and feels like *gasp* Windows. I, for one, rarely use the "Places" locations as all of my data resides on separate partitions. The lack of this kind of crap is exactly wh...

Re: Memory Leak - Memory Usage

I seem to have answered my own question. Collector is part of Bootchart. After I purged Bootchart, collector does not run, and memory usage is seemingly holding steady. I'll give it a couple days to make sure then update the subject to "Solved"

Thanks!

Re: Memory Leak - Memory Usage

I may have spoken too soon. Today I booted and logged in, but walked away from the computer. I didn't open anything. When I came back, the screens were turned off (as they should be.) I moved the mouse and when I looked at memory used, it was around 8 GiB. Again, I did nothing with the computer up t...

Re: Memory Usage

Thanks Reorx. I think that I'll assume that it's a reporting oddity.

Re: Memory Usage

Crap, you're right. I got my numbers in the wrong place on used memory. That makes complete sense, except for how it appears in both Conky and System Monitor. Below are three screenshots: one of Conky, and two of System Monitor. I didn't add up all of the processes' memory usage, but I'm sure that t...

Memory Leak - Memory Usage - Bootchart [Solved]

I recently upgraded to LM 18 Cinnamon. I did the update in-place from 17.3. So far, everything has gone smoothly. I have noticed that in both Conky and Top that my memory usage is reported as really high - at the moment, Top reports that 13.1GiB of 16 are in use; only 4.6GiB are available (roughly, ...

Re: YouTube and Monitor Screen Getting Turned Off

There is a Screensaver Inhibitor applet available. I'm pretty sure that that would accomplish what you want.

It is configurable menu. Hopefully it will settle out when Cinnamon is stable and updates are made.

Re: Odd Notification

Even more oddly, it seems that the error (or whatever it is) is happening more frequently now: It popped up 4, 8, and 10 minutes ago, according the notification applet on the panel. I've gotten into the habit of clearing them off - I'll let it run and see how many I get.

Thank you both for your replies. The first two commands state that there is no crontab for either user or root. The third gives a "total 0" response.

Odd Notification [Solved]

I am getting an odd notification every now and again. Every hour or so I’ll get “repos sourceActor is undefined.” The error does not coincide with when the update manager checks for updates, and if I run "sudo apt-get update" from the terminal I get no errors. I'm running 17.2 Cinnamon. $ inxi -Fzx ...

Re: Linux Mint without desktop environment?

Wrong approach. Instead use a distro that is already intended for old hardware, like AntiX http://distrowatch.com/table.php?distribution=antix I completely understand your reasoning for wanting to stay with the same base, but you really might want to give AntiX a look, particularly the Symbiosis ve...

Re: Temperature Sensors

Thanks!

PSensor did confirm that I was incorrect in the first place. After a whole lot of DuckDuckGoing, I figured out how to get CPU temps in conky. Added this line:

Code: Select all

${execi 5 sensors | grep ^temp1 | tail -n 1 | awk '{print $2}'}
and all is well.

Thanks again for the reply.

Temperature Sensors

I've really confused myself on this. I have a conky that shows me, among other things, various temperatures of my components. I thought that I had this all sorted out, but I don't think that I do. While the "sensors" command gives good info, I'm not sure where everything lines up. Here's a shot of i...

Re: Nemo Annoyance

I disabled all of the plug-ins (I think that's what you meant, I couldn't find Add-ons) and restarted Nemo - no luck, unfortunately. I'm running 17.2, Cinnamon 2.6.13, 64-bit with Nemo 2.6.7. Am I the only one who is getting that at the top of the Nemo window when inserting removable media? I purged...

Unfortunately, this still happens; I've tried it both ways. Setting the "Prompt or start programs on media insertion" to OFF prevents a pop-up dialogue from coming up (or, presumably, from auto-playing a DVD, or opening Calibre, for instance, depending on my settings) but I still get the buttons at ...

This is a slight annoyance but one that I would like to get rid of.
