I have 18 running on my laptop just fine until I try to shut down. It freezes. Does it every time. Also freezes when I remove or plug-in the power cord. Any ideas?

+Matt Rainey interesting, i have the Nvidia 960m and after things were working fine with mint18 i put the gpu into Intel mode (power saving mode) turns out that must have been when the shutdown problems started. i just switched it back to Nvidia mode and i can now shutdown and restart with no problems or delay.

i just installed linux mint 17.3 on a 2008 macbook that would not run any mac os later than 10.6.8.  i installed efibootmgr, but i am not sure that i needed it, since grub works great.  so far it's running great even with 2GB memory.

I have tried the LM18 beta in the MacBook Early 2006. It has anxiety to the operation of the battery. LM17.3 there is no problem, it had been used properly.

Hello everyone,

I have installed XFCE and KDE over existing Mint Cinnamon desktop.
I have plank installed on Mint and like to autostart it only in the Cinnamon session but NOT in XFCE or KDE.
Hence, I edited the usr/share/applications/plank.desktop file and added the below line:
OnlyShowIn=X-Cinnamon;
However, when I login to KDE session, Plank is still displaying at start up.
Please guide

Linux doesn't seem to recognize my harddrive. I'm on linux mint 17.3 xfce, and it's not listed under "Disks", lsblk, or after running 'echo "0 0 0" > /sys/class/scsi_host/host0/scan'
'dmesg | tail -n 20'   shows this (after unplugging && plugging back in):
[25216.994974] ata1.00: hard resetting link
[25217.317775] ata1.01: hard resetting link
[25217.797829] ata1.00: SATA link up 3.0 Gbps (SStatus 123 SControl 300)
[25217.797840] ata1.01: SATA link down (SStatus 0 SControl 300)
[25217.806017] ata1.00: supports DRM functions and may not be fully accessible
[25217.814014] ata1.00: supports DRM functions and may not be fully accessible
[25217.814282] ata1.00: configured for UDMA/133
[25217.814397] ata1: EH complete

The only way to fix it is with a hard restart. I can't seem to find any solutions on google, so does anyone have any solutions that don't include a hard reset? Thanks!

I'm guessing it was a kernel bug. I've been having issues with 17.3 xfce, so I just installed mint 18 cinnamon. (Yes I know it's in beta, but it still runs so much smoother)
I know the drive isn't failing, and I wanted a possible solution for future reference. Thanks!

I know this is a Mint community, but I'll ask anyway. Has anyone here used Peppermint Os? Curious about your experience with it.

Have not played with it alot but I know alot of people who love it. Change the theme a little bit and I could almost see this being a sort of (not to sell the Peppermint devs short) Linux Mint LXDE edition

+Tim Nicholson Upgrade instructions:

- It will be possible to upgrade from this BETA to the stable release.
- It will also be possible to upgrade from Linux Mint 17.3. Upgrade instructions will be published next month after the stable release of Linux Mint 18.

Is there any foreseeable trouble with putting KDE dependencies into Xfce? Why I ask, is because a friend likes the jig-saw puzzle maker "Palapeli" and wants to know if it can be installed and run on Xfce with no problems.

+BALLOON a.k.a. Fu-sen. | ふうせん Fu-sen. that's mostly a concern if you're installing KDE, which isn't what OP was looking for. For example, I'm running Cinnamon as the desktop, and installed okular/krita/k3b which pull in K libraries. This does not install KDE or Plasma, and the libraries themselves had no noticeable impact on my system.

Hi all.
I have a problem..
There is a phone (LG G4, stock rom, no root) and this phone have unmounted his sd card - just so.. without any reason. On this card was a big collection of my wife's photos. This phone belong to her.
Unfortunately this card was initialized again in the phone.
It is any way to access the datas from the previous partition? Some good recovery method/software?
I've tried PhotoRec but it shows only some datas from the latest partition.
I am using Mint 18 Mate, but eventually I can use also windows Seven.
Thnx in advance for any tips.

You can use GetDataBack from runtime.org it's great piece of software and worth every Penny. I recovered a lot with this software.

Hi everyone, a user on Facebook group is behind a Fortiguard firewall, can't do 'sudo apt-get update' without error messages. Anyone know how to bypass Fortiguard to perform an upgrade? Thanks.

I've tried over a dozen different distros, but none of them are up to my standard of lazy, which requires what only Linux Mint can provide; that it just works. Which leaves me time to enjoy designing all the accessories the way I want them. :)

+stefano baldassarre As +Barry Cogger stated, wait until Mint provides the upgrade path after Linux Mint 18  stable has been released (sometime in the first two weeks of July most probably). Attempting to upgrade now will not work or, at best, will only give you a franken-Mint installation which is not what you want.

Remember, Linux Mint 18 has not been released yet. Only the beta version is out which still has bugs that are still being fixed.

With the Mint 18 Mint-Y dark theme, Firefox has quite a few input fields where the text is still white or light color, and the field background is also light (this post included). Is there a way I can fix this - easily - in the dark theme?

This is not a Mint error!
Open your Home directory.
Show hidden files.
Look for .mozilla, open it.
Open firefox folder.
Open folder that ends with .default.
In that folder create folder with the name 'chrome' (no capital letters).
In that folder create new blank document and name it 'userContent.css' with the capital 'C'!
Open that document and enter the following (copy & paste).


input:not(.urlbar-input):not(.textbox-input):not(.form-control):not([type='checkbox']) {
-moz-appearance: none !important;
background-color: white;
color: black;
}

#downloads-indicator-counter {
color: white;
}

textarea {
-moz-appearance: none !important;
background-color: white;
color: black;
}

select {
-moz-appearance: none !important;
background-color: white;
color: black;
}


Save the file and restart Firefox.
The above was found in the Arch Wiki, and cured the problem for me.

Tip, if you didn't know. How to always get the latest fresh LibreOffice. (5.1.4 is out today, for Ubuntu 16.04 and so for Mint 18)

Ubuntu users can only add the PPA, but in Mint we have to proceed like this.

Launch terminal, and run command to create and edit a file :

gksudo gedit /etc/apt/preferences.d/libreoffice.pref

When the file opens, paste below lines and save it.

Package: *
Pin: release o=LP-PPA-libreoffice
Pin-Priority: 700

In Terminal :

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:libreoffice/ppa
sudo apt-get update

Then, go to Software Updater as usual.
