This happens to me every time when mint(tessa) opens. But when I use the generic mode from advanced menu, it runs flawlessly. Is there a fix to this issue, I tried reinstalling but the issue persists.:

This happens to me every time the system reboots. I am not using any other OS hence the boot menu doesn’t show up, then this happens. After a force shutdown and another restart I am able to get into boot menu and then
boot through generic mode. I am afraid I might damage the HDD because of the multiple forced shutdown’s. Any thing I can do to this issue.

I am using Dell Inspiron 3537

My specs are Core i3 @ 1.7 GHz 2 GB ram

Heads up: VirtualBox 5 doesn’t run with the Linux 5.0 kernel:

I bring this up because I was playing around with my kenels and decided to see how badly the new 5.0 series broke my workstation. The only thing I could find that it really impacted for me, at least, was that the virtual box driver module wouldn’t install.

I was curious, so I chased this particular bug down. I had trouble finding much documentation at all, but I did eventually find that VBbox doesn’t work with the 5.x series until version 6.0.6.

https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Changelog-6.0

The version of virtual box that is provided in the repos is 5.2.18, so therein is our issue.

Now, one could install the lated Vbox 6 series deb package from their website: https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Linux_Downloads

I do not recommend this. It means that you’re running a version of VBox that hasn’t been vetted by the Mint team and won’t necessarily receive any security updates or the like.

Unless you absolutely need one of the Linux 5 or VBox 6 features, I recommend with staying on the 4.18 or 4.15 Linux kernel branches. I’m sticking with 4.18 simply so I don’t have to worry about security updates for VBox.

Hello. Having display issues.

Hello. Having display issues.:

I recently installed Linux mint onto my Dell laptop. I have a busted screen so I hook up my laptop to an external monitor. The first few times worked just fine but now the monitor only displays when booting up or shutting down. It doesn’t display my login screen (since I disabled automatic log in) or desktop. In Dell “fn” + “f8” switches display but that doesn’t do anything. Any ideas? When the login screen boots up does it automatically have the cursor in the box so I can just type in my password. Maybe that will work?

I suppose I’ll join the desktop screenshot posters as well. This is my dual monitor setup. I like keeping things nice, clean and simple. Xubuntu 18.04 LTS:

[xfce]Login screen and splash not correct display resolution:

Hi guys!

I just switched to Linux Mint xfce and I must say I’m quite impressed: no screen tearing out of the box!

I installed non free nvidia driver (340.107) because without it I couldn’t connect my laptop to tv. Everything thus far works fine but there is only one thing I observed: the splash when booting is too big for my laptop display and the same goes for login screen after locking. It happens to be like that since I installed nvidia driver.

Is there something I can do about this or is it the “price to pay” for using non free drivers? (without non free drivers I can’t connect to my tv)

Thanks for the help. 🙂

Just upgraded the kernel to 5.0.0-15-generic, and now stuck at 640×480 resolution with NV340 driver.:

Yop! New (and happy) Linux (Mint) user. But today I push my luck a little bit too far, and decided to update the kernel. Now, the nv340 driver doesn’t want to work properly. The xserv-xorg driver (open source) is working fine (it seems), but I’d like to run the nv340 driver. Under nv340 I can’t access any screen options (stuck in default screen mode, 640×480, 73Hz, with no other option).

Linux Mint 19.1 Tessa x86_64 – XFCE. Old kernel: 4.18.0-20. New kernel: 5.0.0-15-generic . NVIDIA GeForce 210 PCIE and a Mitsubishi diamondtron 20" (1600 x1200).

After several switch from nv340 to Xorg and several restarts the situation stays the same. What should I do? Ditch the new kernel and restore the old one (+ my last timeshift, done today, just before the kernel upgrate)? Or is there a solution to run (again) nv340 under the 5.0.0-15 kernel?

Mint Cinnamon vs Peppermint 9

Mint Cinnamon vs Peppermint 9:

Obviously this is a Mint forum. But wondering if anyone here has used both of these distros and what they like or dislike about both, comparing one to the other. I just downloaded and installed both in Virtualbox to test. Played around with each for a bit.

I love the full-featuredness of Cinnamon. Mint seems well put together and coherent, easy on setup and maintenance, as well as easy use of cloud accounts like MS and Google. Peppermint seems equally nice, but looks a bit “retro” with the xfce components and all. However it seems faster and snappier, and I love the ICE app functionality.

Thoughts?
