Just LM 19.1 test report

Post by mint18 » Fri Dec 07, 2018 9:56 pm

Just tested 19.1 64bit

Booting from USB stick take pause for 10-30 seconds with no USB mouse light and no light on USB stick then light up boot continue. Pause for USB ports reset ?

Terminal prompt color still just green for both user & root, LM 18.3 green for user red for root.

Simple System desklet not working.

SAMBA Windows Networking does not show anything, LM 18.3 show all devices.

Evaluated on Lenovo X220 laptop 4GRAm / 120G SSD

It would be helpful if you could submit your bugs as detailed in the LM 19.1 blog post. :)

Nothing got fixed, all reported problems persist, terminal user color still used for root account, SAMABA doesn't show up hosts, boot up still pause for 20-30 seconds before USB lit up.

Desklet works, the only fixed 3rd party item which was fixed.

If you'd like to pursue resolving them, I would suggest posting each issue separately under a topic appropriate for each. :)

I noticed that icons on the desktop do not want to open, or if they do they take almost 1 second (or longer) to open. HTOP will not open from the desktop at all anymore. That is an issue.

NOTE: It does open if I launch it from the panel but not from the desktop.

What is your system and graphics adapter and flavor of Mint?

I just upgraded from 19.0 and it worked fine before and now on an Asrock J3455 w/onboard Intel graphics. Htop loads any way it is possible. I have yet to find any issues so it may be system specific. I am using the xfce flavor of 19 and 19.1. Works a charm and the upgrade was easy...congrats to Clem and the team. The only trouble I can find with Mint is that it is so good that it is boring...nothing to fix.

Had a really, really odd error; I bumped the touchscreen (which works under Mint), and the screen went completely black with a small blinking cursor in the upper left side of the screen. There was a small (maybe 1x1 inch) window with garbled colors. I had to hard reset the computer by holding the power button until it turned off. I then rebooted, and things worked fine. I have never seen that sort of error before. System report shows:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/lib/linuxmint/mintinstall/installer/installer.py", line 532, in _task_error
del self.tasks[task.pkginfo.pkg_hash]
KeyError: 'apt:htop'

Yep there is a bug with desktop launchers for terminal applicatiioms in Cinnamon. See here for the workaround....
