Questions about file manager behavior and kernel hibernation issue

Post by ppas » Mon Mar 12, 2018 1:55 pm

1) when I select more than one file to cut and paste, the system doesn't let me select all files instead it deselects them all - I have to cut and paste them all using the keyboard.

2) Updating to the new kernel (4.13) worsens hibernation -now, it simply doesn't work.

Please generate an overview of your system like this:

- Launch a terminal window (this is how to launch a terminal window);

- make the terminal window full screen, to avoid chopped lines;

- copy/paste this command into the terminal:

Code: Select all

inxi -Fxz
(if you type: the letter F is a capital letter)

- Press Enter.

- Copy/paste the output in your next message.

Reason: Adding code tags [</>]. They retain some formatting that makes your output easier to read.

I'm using Mint cinnamon, and in order to make it better and specially to meet my needs I'm reporting some imperfections I'd like to be corrected:

1) when I select more than one file to cut and paste, the system doesn't let me select all files instead it deselects them all - I have to cut and paste them all using the keyboard.

2) Updating to the new kernel (4.13) worsens hibernation -now, it simply doesn't work.
A little more info? When you select them how? Through a file manager? Which file manager? There are about a dozen. Each desktop has it's own file manager. Which desktop? Have you installed extra file managers? Did you install (or remove) the clipboard manager?

I have no problem in MATE desktop with any file manager, and I have 4 installed, one I even forced to install. Click the first item. Hold down the SHIFT key. Click the last item. Right-click and select Copy (or, Cut, if you're going to move them) Move the mouse to the location you want them, right-click and select Paste.
Works every time!

Or, to move selected items, hold down the CTRL key instead of Shift, and select the items to copy/move.
I have travelled 35629424162.9 miles in my lifetime

One thing I would suggest, create a partition a ~28G partition as /. Partition the rest as /Home.
When the system fails, reinstall and use the exact same username and all your 'stuff' comes back to you.

Try the latest kernel of the 4.4 series (currently 4.4.0-116). In view of the age of your machine, that's probably a better choice anyway.
