Re: Can't boot to Cinnamon shell login screen in «Olivia»

Thanks for your respective replies, Anand and Eanfrid ! I tried performing sudo update-rc.d mdm enable in a terminal, with the result seen here : [sudo] password for mhenriday: update-rc.d: warning: /etc/init.d/mdm missing LSB information update-rc.d: see <http://wiki.debian.org/LSBInitScripts> Enab...

Re: Can't boot to Cinnamon shell login screen in «Olivia»

Thanks, Anand , for your kind reply ! I tried entering the code you provided in a terminal, but alas, the window shown in your screenshot did not appear ; instead I saw what appears in the first screenshot attached below in the terminal window itself. I also tried entering the code directly in the c...

Re: Can't boot to Cinnamon shell login screen in «Olivia»

This issue does certainly seem to have something to do with MDM ; when, after using the «startx» command to get to the Cinnamon GUI, I click on Settings → Login Screen, I get the error message shown in the attachment below and which can be translated as follows : MDM (GNOME's display manager) is not...

Re: Can't boot to Cinnamon shell login screen in «Olivia»

Comforting - misery loves company ! - to note that others are also encountering this problem ; thanks for your replies ! I've also tried manipulating mdm to no avail. Nor can I use «Ctrl+Alt+F7» to get to the Cinnamon GUI from the console. There surely has to be some sort of registry tweak that will...

Can't boot to Cinnamon shell login screen in «Olivia»

After having used the Cinnamon desktop environment since Canonical inflicted the Unity desktop on Ubuntu users, I finally took the step of Installing 64-bit Linux Mint 15 on one of the HDDs on my main box a couple of weeks ago. I've been very happy with the distro - and with the help I've found in r...

Re: Yet another update problem [Solved ?]

Thanks, bigj231 ! I agree, Linux is weird like that, but not only Linux ; weird things seem to happen on every OS with which I have any experience. I always blame such events on quantum mechanics.... :wink: In any event, I very much appreciate the willingness to help that seems to characterise this ...

Re: Yet another update problem

Thanks for your speedy reply, bigj231 ! As a matter of fact, turning off all other processes and running sudo apt-get update was one of the first things I tried after discovering that updating via the GUI no longer was working, but alas, the result was, as I expected, nugatory. Now suddenly, however...

Re: Changing the way date and time display in the login scre

Thanks again for your speedy reply, WesternSlope ! As I noted in an earlier post, we seem to be talking about two different things - I have no difficulties at all with the way date and time are displayed on my panel , having clicked on the default setting → «Settings for date and time» button and th...

Re: Changing the way date and time display in the login scre

Thanks, WesternSlope , for your speedy reply ! But I suspect you are referring to a different matter, i e, the setting of the date and time to be shown in the panel below (in your case) or above (in my case) the windows that are open on the Cinnamon desktop. That I have indeed been able to configure...

Changing the way date and time display in the login screen

I've been using Ubuntu since Dapper Drake, latterly with Cinnamon as my desktop environment, but my very first Mint installation - 64-bit Linux Mint 15 «Olivia» Cinnamon - took place yesterday, which certainly qualifies me as a newbie ! I've hitherto been able to resolve all my questions and problem...
