File Manager gets stuck in Panel Mate 18.0

Post by pcpunk » Mon Jan 09, 2017 7:03 pm

Has anyone else experienced the File Manager getting stuck in Panel when Minimized, I've experienced this on two computers now. I wonder if this was fixed in 18.1?

Also, don't like the way Wallpapers and or Screensavers are set. Where should I post stuff like this "Suggestions & New Ideas"?

Sorry for repeating this, but this is the Thread that I wanted to keep this going in. No matter what I do I keep getting this problem. With every Install, whether it be a laptop or desktop, live session or installed, Install media created with UUI and Rufus, they all have the same problem. Already spent lot's of time with this, and will look for a way to log a bug report but don't have lots of time or skills to do so. I have one linux mint customer, and his laptop seems to have outgrown this issue for some reason, but it did have it to start with.

Maybe someone could link me to directions to post a bug report for Mint?

Thanks, pc

Really, Nothing?

I cannot be the only one that this is happening too.

I posted a bug report.

Nobody else experiencing this?

I really miss installing Mate to any old Vista pc's and some other newer pc's, but now cannot install the 18 Series due to this problem. I have now relegated myself to ONLY Installing Xfce because it don't have any blatant quarks like Mate 18 Series does.

The only Mate 18 Series I have Installed is to help one customer if needed, other than that it would be uninstalled. I've tried everything I can think of to make this thing work. Multiple iso's download and checked, multiple USB Creators used, multiple computers used etc.

I'm still perplexed that no one else is having this problem, or is not admitting to having it? It seems to me Mate is somewhat of a Flagship for Mint, and so they would want it to be as good as possible.

File Manager getting stuck in Panel when Minimized
are you using Caja?
what do you mean by "getting stuck"? It should be showing in the window list until it is closed.

(I did not see your bug report if you made one)

BTW: Mate is not a "flagship" for Mint... that would be Cinnamon, their own creation.

Right click the file manager in the panel make sure its not locked. Only reason I can think of.

Been using mate for many years never had that problem.

i'm still using mate 17.3 and when support goes dead i hope mate 19 if it comes out it doesn't have flaws. i'm experiencing issues sometimes with panel being not clickable but all i do is hit ctrl+back space which logs me out then log in. the only thing i can suggest if you still have issues (i see the OP from jan,2017 that's a long time) change the window manager in control center > desktop settings > windows > window manager > try marco+compton or compiz then log out or reboot

I'm using whatever the default is.

If I open the File Manager to something like my USB Flash Drive, then Minimize it, Open and Close the Menu, and then Try to Maximize the File Manager it get's stuck in the Panel, it won't open. It then needs to be Right Clicked "Close" to start over. Major flaw with no answers.

I don't see this issue in Mate 19, but Mate 19 has too much Screen Tearing while Scrolling in Firefox, is there are fix for that?

I will try the Compiz thing one day but I'm kinda over it now, spent way too much time messing with it. For me, won't even bother with Mate 18 anymore.
