Re: Only a quarter of one icon shows on one icon?

I posted about the same thing here. It seems to be the leftmost icon and it's completely random when it happens.

Re: [Solved] Graphic corruption with Windows 10 1903 on VirtualBox 5.2.18

I assigned 4GB and 2 CPU cores to the VM. I also installed the extension pack and the guest additions.

Re: Graphic corruption with Windows 10 1903 on VirtualBox 5.2.18

I did that and still had the issue until I set the video card to VBox_SVGA instead of VBox_VGA, although then I got some weird screen corruption at boot time. https://i.ibb.co/VmmpCsr/Screenshot-from-2019-07-17-09-23-51.png Once the login screen came up it worked OK, although the performance was hor...

[Solved] Graphic corruption with Windows 10 1903 on VirtualBox 5.2.18

I set up a Windows 10 1903 VM in VirtualBox (newly installed from Software manager) yesterday. Windows is fully updated and has the latest Additions software installed but I am seeing strange graphic corruption in certain areas. Thing is, it seems to be quite intermittent. Sometimes the graphics dis...

Re: How many are 100% Linux here?

Daily driver is a T430 that's 100% Mint 19.1
I also have a Miix 510 (convertible tablet) that runs Windows 10 1903 as it's used for Sketchbook, SAI, Affinity Photo etc.

Re: Flat 'Modern' GUI design and where it comes from (and reflections of Clems March 2019 blog post in relation to that)

I don't know what it was called, but I strongly prefer the UI design Google used with Android 4.x and earlier. Like this? https://s14-eu5.startpage.com/cgi-bin/serveimage?url=https:%2F%2Fwww.zdnet.com%2Fi%2Fstory%2F60%2F05%2F009781%2Fandroid-4.png&sp=a16f7adb7a359340e8c4f04dccfab586 That's the one!...

Re: Color looks washed [help]

Are you using Redshift by any chance? I found the display on my T430 looked washed out until I turned it off.

Re: Notification icons not showing poroperly (19.1)

It was switched off. I've switched it on and will see if it makes a difference. Thing is, it's quite random. Most of the time the icons display properly but occasionally will only display a quarter of the icon.

Notification icons not showing properly (19.1)

I get this random issue where the left-most notification icon sometimes only displays a quarter of the icon. This is usually when a new icon appears, not when the initial icons appear at login. I've seen it happen with the Facebook Messenger icon and the appointments icons (shown in screengrab). htt...

It'll probably be a good idea if you post a link to the instructions you're following along with the errors you're getting so that people can help you.

Re: Unable to enter BIOS

Doubtful, as they're able to enter the BIOS when rebooting from Win7 so they're aware of the correct keypress.

If it's Windows 10 you can get the ISO from Microsoft to reinstall.

I read the review of 19.1 on Ars Technica and decided to give it a try due to some annoying bugs in the latest Ubuntu.

Re: [SUCCEEDED] I wanna buy a second hand Thinkpad. Any snags I might wanna look out for?

I must admit, that when IBM sold off their PC market I lost confidence in the product. I think lenovo did a good job, certainly with the the T4xx laptops. If you look at the diehards on the thinkpad forum they moan about the chicklet keyboards and 'poor' screen quality. But they are fine to me. Per...

Re: I wanna buy a second hand Thinkpad. Any snags I might wanna look out for?

If it does turn out to be OK you'll love the T430. It's built like a tank and runs Mint Cinnamon very nicely.
