I tried this procedure this evening and so far so good I have not yet had any freezes. I was able to force the freeze by editing a LO Writer document containing a large table, after this change this does not happen.clem wrote:Hi,
You guys are doing great at troubleshooting this. The cause of the problem isn't precise enough for us to fix anything yet, but we're working on Cinnamon at the moment and we might have some good news. Although the latest Cinnamon (pre-1.5) isn't ready to be packaged and released into Mint, it already is working and it features many of the changes from Gnome Shell 3.4.
I'm not suggesting you all go and compile it, but maybe some of you can do it and provide debs to others, or at the very least give it a try and see if it fixes things. I wrote a quick tutorial to show how to compile the latest muffin/cinnamon in Linux Mint 13: http://community.linuxmint.com/tutorial/view/955
At the moment if you compile muffin and cinnamon from their "master" branch (i.e. if you follow the tutorial without specifying any branch) you'll end up with a muffin pre-1.0.4 (which calls itself 1.0.4) and a cinnamon pre-1.5 (which calls itself 1.4-UP3).
One side effect is that I have no background (transparent background) on the tool tip popups when I hover over something in my panel.
After I did this for the first time I had to refresh my disk from the image so I had to go through the process again. I attempted to just install the debs created first time round but it complained about a missing dependency. I thus had to get the packages first then the installation of the deb worked.
