Re: WEBEX help

Hello, Rearden,

Re: I can't access my menu settings

Hello, Allen v Pothen 2. Actually, the GTK warning from the terminal window can be ignored. It is harmless. In order to find out whether the reported inability to edit the Mint menu only affects your own Linux Mint user account, you might create a second user. You could then log in as this second us...

Re: Update to Linux Kernel 4.5ubuntu1.1

Hello, Jo.

The updated package is not a kernel update, it is only the package linux-base 4.5ubuntu1.1.
Please, read the [solved] thread [Solved] 4.5ubuntu1.1 Kernel Update.
You are not the first user, who got confused by the update linux-base 4.5ubuntu1.1.
