Re: Just a side note to Clem

And here we are in September with the same issue. Perhaps the Dev's and Clem should review the .xsession-erors file from time to time.

Re: What is the normal RAM usage for Mint 17.1 MATE???

I know I am a bit late in the discussion but I am running Antergos w/Cinnamon and my ram usage at idle is about 350mb. With Chrome running with 1 tab open it is about 700mb. For Mate at idle to be using 1gb seems a bit high to me. When I ran Xfce on Antergos my memory was at about 250mb. When i ran ...

Re: i just want one, universal, cursor theme

You have to edit the /usr/share/icons/default/index.theme

then replace on the 'inherit' line with the EXACT name of the cursor you want to use.

Logoff and you should see your desired cursor at logon as well.

Good luck.

Re: Cinnamon 2.6

I am using Antergos, basically and Arch installer, and very recently install Cinnamon 2,6,7. Man this is one sweet desktop. You guys have done a fantastic job. Fast, really fast, menu display (was one of my pet peeves about being slow) and so smooth. No errors, it just works. BTW, thanks so much for...

Re: xsession-errrors file filling up with 'guint'

7 months and still not fixed. I left a while ago and went to Antergos then just straight Arch. No more of those silly errors that no one appears to want to fix. .xsession-errors should be a pre-requisite check to see if all is well. I have found so many errors, sometimes wtih Themes, sound, you name...

Re: Cinnamon window focus while minimizing

Don't know if you would call this 'clever' but I initially started out with LMDE and then I went to the 'Dark Side'. I changed my repositories to point to SID. I am now running Cinnamon 2.2.16 and do not have the issue you speak of. Follow the instructions on the post http://forums.linuxmint.com/vie...

Re: Title Bar unreachable behind top menu bar in xfce

Also you might check on Panel Properties and see if

Don't reserve space on borders is checked

If checked the windows titlebars will display underneath the panel.

Re: Theme help

I know I come late to the party, but I was just cruising the site when I saw your post.
Is that the only place where the RED highlight shows?
Change theme?
I'm just taking stabs at you problem, hope I helped.

Re: Cinnamon theme setting

The problem you are experiencing is, I think, the theming. I had a similar problem with selecting and option in the Settings and the text was basically gone and no background highlight (mine is a dark green). It was the almost the same color as the base color. Now I have been running Cinnamon for ab...

Re: Mint desktop acting wierd and breaking

My only thoughts are as follows: I assume based on you inxi output that you are running gnome. I would just re-install all the gnome stuff, gnome-session, gnome-shell.. I think you get my drift there. If that doesn't fix it, try creating a new user. DONOT add any extensions other that what is normal...

Re: xsession-errrors file filling up with 'guint'

Spoke too soon. The errors were gone from the syslog but I logged off and when I logged in again, the errors were back. To keep .xsession-errors from filling up I just select all the data in the file and delete, then save the file. Tacky, but saves using up space for nonsense errors. I wish this wou...

Well I guess my problem is kind of unique, like the wallpaper background doesn't work.
I wonder if others are having the same problem?

I used gdm3 and there is an option at the top of the screen, what appears to be a 'tiny' person. Clicked on that and I was able to click on the On screen keyboard.

I decided to give GDM3 a whirl instead of Lightdm and now the messages in the notifications show up.
Go figure. What the heck is GDM doing that Lightdm isn't?
