Cinnamon 3.6.6 - big problems

Post by JEBB » Sat Apr 07, 2018 10:16 pm

After a fresh install of 32-bit Linux Mint 18.3 and running Update Manager, the desktop shows only the right 20%; the rest is black. I repeated the fresh install and ran the Update Manager but didn't allow it to update any Cinnamon apps. Now the computer runs as it should.

Any suggestions?

From the rules
List any relevant hardware or software specifications. 'inxi' is a useful terminal command for listing this. Use inxi -h for help. Generally it suffices to type the following in terminal and include the output in your post -> inxi -Fxz
from here might go a long way to assisting those with more expertise than I to giving you a meaningful answer.

I am suspicious of a dodgy driver Did you run the driver update too? <Menu><Administration><Driver Manager>?
Kernel: 4.15.0-24-generic x86_64 bits: 64
Desktop: Cinnamon 3.8.7
Distro: Linux Mint 19 Tara

Laptop T4500 Dualcore 4Gb RAM
Server AMD Phenom 9650 - GEForce 9400GT 6Gb RAM
Out of my mind - please leave a message

I have two Dell Minis and the problem has occurred with both. One is a 9" Mimi labeled as an Inspiron 910 and the other is an Inspiron 10 (Inspiron 10v, 1011). Both have 2GB RAM. I did do the driver updates.

Is that enough information?

No, and if you had read the last post you may have seen this:
