Re: Dropbox tray icon missing-update fails to fix

I have the same problem using Lubuntu with Mint/cinnamon (17.3/2.8.6) and also on another machine with pure Mint/Cinnamon. I have tried every solution that had been presented in the numerous threads about this issue, but none worked. Isn't it appalling that a problem that has been reported more than...

HTPC on an Intel's NUC running mint

Has anyone tried to run Mint/Cinnamon 17.3 on the tiny Intel NUC (New Unit of Computing)? I am using one of those, with an i5 processor, as an HTPC. So far I like it, but I am struggling with controlling it-- I use the RT-WMK03 miniature keyboard with a touchpad as the remote control for it, which w...

Re: Dual boot- overheating in Linux only

I am also having this problem on a Yoga 2 Pro (Windows 10 & Lubuntu 15.10-- which uses the latest 14.XXX kernel, but with a mint/cinnamon 17.2 desktop). I am also using tlp to control battery use and cpu performance. Sadly, none of these manoeuvres helped. The CPU temperature sometimes reaches 85 de...

Re: Keyboard produces no input-- only beeps

Thanks a lot for the expert advice-- it was, indeed, the slow keys feature. All is well now.
Thanks again!

Re: Keyboard produces no input-- only beeps

Sorry for being less than crystal clear. I am able to login (type my password) to the cinnamon account, but immediately after that, once the main screen appears, the keyboard only beeps. In other words: if I click on a text editor, it opens, but I cannot type into it. I was able to log into the syst...

Re: Keyboard produces no input-- only beeps

Inspired by the suggestion to create a new account, I decided to try the Guest account, which worked perfectly. But when I logged out, and logged back on as me, the keyboard still only beeps. Somehow, something had corrupted a file that processes my keyboard signals. If I knew more about Linux I wou...

Re: Keyboard produces no input-- only beeps

Sorry for the misplaced post, but I am new here, and still do not know where such requests should be directed. The keyboard works fine when I log in, but immediately after that it only beeps and after that is useless. Because of that, I can do NOTHING, and certainly cannot create a new user account....

Re: Keyboard produces no input-- only beeps

It is hard to believe that I am the ONLY ONE who has encountered this problem. The keyboard works fine under Windows 8.1, Lubuntu 15.04, and gnome. It ONLY fails under mint. Have I uncovered a bug in mint? There MUST be a way to squash it or get around it. I even tried a previous kernel, but to no a...

Keyboard produces no input-- only beeps

I am using a Yoga 2 Pro, dual boot to Windows 8.1 and Linux/mint/cinnnamon 17.1. While I was typing (using On BOARD virtual keyboard), all of a sudden every keypress produced only a beep, and no input to the screen. I switched to the hardware keyboard, but it, too, produced no input-- only beeps. I ...

Re: WLAN is hard blocked... How to unblock permanently?

In trying to gradually move to Mint from Lubuntu, I ran 17.1 from a USB stick. Everything worked, except for the all important wifi connection. I tried blacklisting ideapad-laptop (I am using a Yoga 2 Pro from Lenovo, with Intel wifi 7260, rev 6b), and rfkill unblock all, but both failed. I have bee...
