Re: The bar at the bottom of the screen sometimes disappears

Well dang it, let it sit suspended for about three hours, came back, resumed session, and no panel bar. Did Ctl-Alt-Esc again to reset it. Nemo is still working correctly (before and after reset.) And find $HOME ! -user $USER -type f still shows no data returned. Hmm.... stumped at this point. Not f...

Re: The bar at the bottom of the screen sometimes disappears

Cosmo, Well, thank you, this looks promising. When logging back in, there was no semi-transparent error from Cinnamon, and Nemo search function is working as I expect it to now. I ran the find $HOME ! -user $USER -type f again, and it reported back nothing. We'll see if all stays correct now. If you...

Cosmo, Here's the result of that run: hmlx@HmLx ~ $ find $HOME ! -user $USER -type f /home/hmlx/Desktop/My_IT_Stuff/iftop-1.0pre4/config.log /home/hmlx/Desktop/Public/.mintbackup /home/hmlx/Downloads/pidgin-sipe-1.20.1/po/Makefile.in /home/hmlx/Downloads/pidgin-sipe-1.20.1/po/stamp-it /home/hmlx/Dow...

Re: The bar at the bottom of the screen sometimes disappears

As I cannot reproduce the issue (so I cannot investigate anywhere here) I repeat my already given advice: Create a new user account for testing. Cosmo, Apologies for not trying this sooner. I did the following: 1. Created new user "test" 2. Switched to user "test" 3. Set up displays to look the sam...

Re: The bar at the bottom of the screen sometimes disappears

So, tried this again. Can't seem to get a video uploaded that will playback clearly, sorry about that. (obvious lack of talent!) If you watch, you will see that the displayed folder action (expand/contract) is happening for the folder I tried to do the action on prior to moving to another folder and...

Re: The bar at the bottom of the screen sometimes disappears

Okay, this is starting to get annoying now. Immediately after the 2.8.7 update, it was very random upon resuming from suspend, that the panel bar would be missing. It's missing every time now. Also, and don't know how they could be related, the file manager (Nemo) that comes with Mint; when I do a s...

Re: The bar at the bottom of the screen sometimes disappears

...... But we would need more feedback with more information, especially the Cinnamon-version, the used graphics driver and the used kernel, to judge. Without those information it is like poking around in the dark. hmlx@HmLx ~ $ inxi CPU~Quad core Intel Core i7-6700K (-HT-MCP-) speed/max~1000/4001 ...

Re: The bar at the bottom of the screen sometimes disappears

Cosmo,

For me, it does not do it every time it resumes. I have note by the monitor so the next time it happens we'll try the ctrl-alt-esc sequence and see what happens, and report back.

Re: The bar at the bottom of the screen sometimes disappears

I am having the same issue since the recent Cinnamon update. I've had to do the Ctl-Alt-F1/log in to terminal, and type the following to get it restored without just restarting the whole thing: cinnamon --restart Panel is set to "Always Show", not in edit mode. Toggling the Ctl-Alt-F1/F8 options doe...

Re: User Name for Software Reviews

EDIT: the reset pwd link from the system - did work, & I'm now back into my Community Account But - the review still won't work. :o Note: the system supplies a pwd - that you, the end user - can't change. Pierre, I confused by the statement I marked in red. (that doesn't take much to accomplish) I ...

Re: PSA: Google Chrome drops support for 32 bit and Mint 13

For whatever reason, the code lines that have been shown in the line code sections didn't work for me. I did copy/paste from two different locations just in case I wasn't seeing a text error, but it didn't help. However, from terminal, manually editing the two files as root, and adding the "[arch=am...

Re: [Solved] Cinnamon Crashed-Missing Files and Corruption

Hi Jim, thanks for responding. No, I was logged on as always. Started Screeshot from the "Menu" program list. I did notice with the other few screenshots I made, the screen would flicker once, what I would call harsh--as if you unplugged/plugged back in the display cable in the blink of an eye. Only...

[Solved] Cinnamon Crashed-Missing Files and Corruption

Had this happen last night, and fortunately, managed to get it fixed. Just posting this to see if anyone else had seen this issue before, or help someone else out down the line. I was using Libre Office Impress, and making some "how-to" slides with screen shots, that were being taken with "Screensho...
