Re: 17.1 Cinnamon is intermittently unresponsive

I had been using Mate instead of Cinnamon with no issues. Upon seeing your post Wednesday I switched back to Cinnamon. I lasted until just a few minutes ago when Cinnamon froze solid again. Back to Mate.

Re: 17.1 Cinnamon is intermittently unresponsive

I did a clean re-install of 17.1 over the weekend. I am no longer seeing the intermittent hangs. However; it appears to me that one application that seems to freeze Cinnamon solid is the card game aisleriot. It also seems to be connected to how fast I am doing mouse clicks. Is there something I can ...

Re: 17.1 Cinnamon is intermittently unresponsive

I have also been experiencing this behavior. I never experienced it on Mint 17 or 16, just 17.1. I see that the clock (seconds) freezes but if I leave things alone most of the time it resumes after about 30 seconds. On those times it never resumes, I just F1 to the command line and restart Cinnamon....

Re: I cannot view videos on weather.com only

I am running Mint 17 with Cinnamon. I was able to get weather.com videos to play in Firefox (latest) but first had to disable flashblock, disable adblock, and use the user agent switcher set for IE (8 in this case). I was not able to get them to play under Chrome using the same method as on Firefox.

Re: Printer shared over network found but not printing

I am running LM 17 Cinnamon 64 and my networked Brother MFC-8480DN was working perfectly until a recent CUPS update. I can no longer print from either of my two machines. There are no error notifications, the print engine warms up but then that is it. Even a test print from the printer settings fail...

Re: Linux Mint 17 codenamed “Qiana”

Installed LM 17 Cinnamon 64 yesterday on a Lenovo X1. All is working great. Just had to patch libfprint to get the fingerprint reader working. Everything else was fine right out of the box. Also tried it on a Lenovo W520 with Nvidia and all is fine.

Re: Installation and Partitioning Questions - First Time Use

Hi, I am not a first time user but will be doing my first install with a UEFI machine (Lenovo X1 Carbon) soon. Since Linux Mint will be the only OS used, is there anything besides disabling SecureBoot in BIOS that is recommended? Any thoughts on UEFI boot versus Legacy boot mode? Thank you.
