Hi, I got the following error: "cinnamon just crashed you are currently running in Fallback Mode." and I had to restart my laptop. The laptop is a Dell Latitude E6410 and I have the latest BIOS installed. Those are the specs: https://gist.githubusercontent.com/anon ... 80094383/-

Pseudolukian, your heat sink is filled with dust. With the temperature that high (85 degrees C) I would recommend blowing out the fan and the fins of the heatsink and putting in fresh thermal paste on the CPU. To blow it out, use the exhaust of a vacuum cleaner from the outside after you expose the fan vent. Not that difficult with a Dell 6410.

Did you try with Mint live USB for 18.3?
Mate is a lighter version for resources. You can try it.
