Re: cinnamon crashes on boot after pulseaudio deamon (re)loads

Hello oldgranola, when a reset to the default cinnamon settings doesn't help, I don't know, what causes your crashes. It seems, that your Cinnamon desktop is somehow damaged and maybe a new install could help. I hope, you have a recent timeshift snapshot and then follow the steps described here: ht...

Re: cinnamon crashes on boot after pulseaudio deamon (re)loads

so given all the info we can gleam from logs and dumps, how does one diagnose what causes cinnamon to crash? I tend to look at the last thing that loads before any crash. But the very last thing to be called is cinnamon itself. ....

Re: cinnamon crashes on boot after pulseaudio deamon (re)loads

I tried to post a more full journalctl output with -p set to 1..3 but too long. The upshot is that with repeated cinnamon restart and crashes there's always the pulseaudio issue prior. Also the clock applet has errors. Could it be related to that? Aug 24 11:17:40 fun2 pulseaudio[1610]: [pulseaudio] ...

Hello oldgranola, If you want to get rid of PAM messages, you find a how-to here: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/lightdm/+bug/1309535/comments/28 I have the pulseaudio message, too, but there is no effect to the properly running of the system.

[giving up]cinnamon crashes on boot after pulseaudio deamon (re)loads

Edited to say I've found that I have to take a different tack. Looks like something in LM19.2 cinnamon is not compatible with my setup whereas 19.1 was fantastic. Same thing happens after creating a bootable LM19.2 USB, cinnamon crashes to fallback. Yet Manjaro works fine both as a live USB and ins...

Re: Linux Mint 19.2 Tina: my how-to's have all been modified

Sorry, you feel that way. I thought (perhaps I was wrong) it accounted for system stability, See, that idea that not fixing bugs is somehow making your system more stable is exactly why levels had to go. :) Mind you, this is through no fault of your own: the way the old system was made up it basica...

Well that ways easy via update manager. Dev's put some time into that me thinks not just for doing it GUI but the whole CL process which that hooks to. I did make sure to first fix broken dependencies, got rid of dead PPA's and be as up-to date as possible before starting but how nice. Thank you. I ...

Re: Available kernel update doesn't install with aptitude

I use sudo apt-get upgrade normally was using the GUI updates for LTS Kernel 4.15.x and LTS 4.19.x. mostly worked so I'm surprised at your experience using CLI. But now on 5.1.x on non work computers using ukuu script which has been great but I have seen absolutely zero advantage of latest stable vs...

Re: New Cinnamon install not dual booting

You don't install Grub n such post LM install. Not sure where you got that. You shrink your windows partition first within windows and leave space for LM. How much to give is up to you but I like 100Gb or more. Then you boot your LM live USB and choose install. You choose 'other' and install along s...

Re: How do I check why an app makes my OS freeze?

You don't ever need to install anything to use VPN on LM. What .Deb? I'd get rid of it in a hurry. Unless you are handy with linux, don't install anything thats not available via the software manager. BTW, Astrill has a horrible reputation. Not secure at all. The very idea that they want you to inst...

Lots of articles now on a firefox 67.0 security vulnerability and Mozilla also saying to patch immediately due to risk to 67.0.3 but is not available via LM update manager yet. One alternative is to add the mozilla security PPA and install from there. What do y'all think? I assume by tonight it will...
