Re: can't get HD resolution in Windows 7 virtual machine

It may be worth trying to download and install the 5.0.26 version direct from VBox As already written there is no downloadable 5.0.x version for Mint 18 (Ubuntu 16.04). This is no option. You can download 5.0.26 xenial ( = Ubuntu 16.04 = Mint 18) directly from download.virtualbox.org: http://downlo...

Re: I cannot install anything or make any changes.

Maybe you used another keyboard layout by accident while installing so you mistyped your password.

Re: Mint 18: Cinnamon crashes instantly after exiting full screen games

Thank you both so far. BTW I experienced the crashes not just in games but also after closing full screen VirtualBox sessions. So chances are this nasty little bug will be fixed as MTWebster of the Linux Mint team is now aware of it.

Mint 18: Cinnamon crashes instantly after exiting full screen games

After leaving some full screen games (Steam based ones but also Amiga emulator FS-UAE) I get a notification that Cinnamon has just crashed and if I wish to restart it. After restarting Cinnamon everything works fine though. Obviously a bug in Cinnamon 3, as the crashs don't occur nether in Mint 17.3...

Re: Mint 18 beta + Tor

Please specify exactly what problem do you have with Tor.

I use LM 18 beta Cinnamon 64bit too. I just downloaded Tor from https://www.torproject.org/download/download.html.en extracted the archive to the desktop and started the "Tor Browser" and everything works fine.

Re: Steam not running on Mint 18 Cinnamon

This is NOT a bug in LM 18 beta but a known problem of Steam which exists in Ubuntu 16.04 too!

Open a terminal and enter

Code: Select all

LD_PRELOAD='/usr/$LIB/libstdc++.so.6' DISPLAY=:0 steam
to start Steam.

btw Ubuntu 16.04 is already at 4.4.0-18 so 4.4.0-13 is a little bit outdated :wink:

Re: Why kernel 4.4.0-13 has disappeared from mint repositories?

I have installed 4.4.0-15 and it works fine as 4.4.0-13 did before. I can still see all 4.4 kernels in mintupdates but maybe because I am using a german mirror server (ftp-stud.hs-esslingen.de)

Re: Why did 17.3 Cinnamon not create the std directories?

I'm puzzled by this. AZgl1500 provides the following information on partitions: /dev/sda8 460G 195G 266G 43% /home By my reading that means he does have a separate /home partition. No, this is the setup of his friend's Linux installation. btw I prefer a seperate /home partition too: Filesystem Size...
