Debian Multimedia :: 8.1 Cinnamon - Windows And Parts Of Panel Disappear

Sep 2, 2015

I installed a fresh new Jessie (8.1) with the Cinnamon environment a few days a go, and yesterday I started seeing a strange issue seemingly happening at random.

I'm not sure what I do to cause this, but every few hours all the text and some of the icons (launcher, notifications and some applications) on the panel disappear. Most icons in the menu also vanish.

I've just noticed that some windows also disappear, but instead of showing the window behind them, I see my background image (see attached image).

I can't interact with windows which I can't see, but I can move and resize them (they have no border to grab, but alt+middle mouse works).

I can get around the issue by restarting Cinnamon (Alt+F2, r), but that works only part of the time.

Dmesg shows nothing (most recent message was plugging in my mouse & keyboard).

I'm running this on a Lenovo X201 (which uses Intel HD graphics QM57) and an external monitor (dual monitor configuration)...

Debian Multimedia :: How To Quit Cinnamon Desktop And Get X Session

Jul 3, 2015

I have an app I've developed in Qt 5.3.1 that has display problems when using 3D accerelation in VirtualBox using Debian Cinnamon. It seems to happen with Cinnamon in any Linux distro I've tried. Once I boot into Debian Cinnamon, how can I stop my Cinnamon session (I think I must start with Ctrl+Alt+F1) , then get a straight X session to run my app without Cinnamon, with 3Dacceleration in VirtualBox?

Debian Multimedia :: How To Update Cinnamon Desktop Environment

Jul 9, 2015

I'm using debian with cinnamon desktop on a laptop with a second monitor. The panel (the bar where there are the application title bars with some system infos like battery status and clock) is only displaying on one screen depending if it is set as a primary screen. I wanted a way to get a second bar on the second monitor.

Ideally I wanted that each bar should display only the application which is present on that screen but this is completely optional. The most important thing I wanted is at least to duplicate the bar on the second monitor so I can check the clock and other infos..

First I thought that this should be only a little configuration problem.. But I rapidly understand that this is simply not possible. But I also discovered that the new version of the cinnamon desktop (2.6) have got many improvement and is that provide this dual screen options.

I then saw that my version of cinnamon is the version 2.2.16 (the version that is supported by debian). I went to the cinnamon website but I don't find any information on how to install this version.. All the information is related to the linuxmint distro.

Debian Multimedia :: No Hardware Acceleration On Cinnamon Live

Oct 30, 2015

I've made a persistent live USB out of an amd64 Cinnamon iso, but it has problems running on my old Dell XPS Studio 16.The laptop has an ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3670, and all needed packages are installed (Xorg, libgl1-mesa-dri, xserver-xorg-video-radeon and firmware-linux-nonfree), but the system starts without video hardware acceleration.I've read that I have, in this case, to tell to use the srivers in /etc/X11/xorg.conf. To do it, I first stop lightdm and do it in tty, but it fails with a long can I give you that tty output? I tried both with > and with tee, but the file I indicate as output is created empty.

Debian Multimedia :: Stretch With Gnome And Cinnamon - Computer Hangs While Switching Users

Sep 10, 2015

I'm using Debian Stretch with Gnome and Cinnamon. My desktop computer sports an nvidia geforce 970 gpu (this may be relevant, and it is the reason I had to go with stretch.) I'm not a very experienced linux user but I get along fine.

I'm sharing my computer with my mom and whenever we have to switch users, the computer seems to shut down for 35 seconds: the screen doesn't receive signal anymore. After a new user is chosen, it takes another 35 seconds to get to her session. This is embarassing because my os runs on an ssd and everything else is nice and fast. At first I thought it may be a matter of us two not using the same window manager or not using the "default" window manager, but changing window managers didn't work.

Today I learned about the existence of /var/log/syslog and I decided to check what happened to it when I switched users. I can't post the whole log of what happens because it is too big, but I put it on pastebin : [URL] ....

I understand almost nothing of what is written here, but I saw some interesting things:

- after 35 seconds intervals where nothing is logged, there is a stall on cpu detected (lines 68, 500)
- my gpu seems to have something to do in all this

Ubuntu :: Icons Start To Disappear In Panel

May 26, 2010

I just installed Ubuntu 10.04 LTS 32Bit on my Dell Inspiron B130 Laptop, and it works great, way faster then windows XP which was pre-installed on the machine. Everything worked out of the box except for the Wireless but after some reading I was able to get it to work by plugging it in to the wired connection. but anyway the problem I'm having is that it seems like after a few days of use ubuntu starts to act up, things become out of place and not work. this even happens with Linux Mint also. By acting up I mean, Icons start to disappear in the panel, my wireless connection starts to stop working and the only way to keep it on is to either log off and try to log in using KDE instead of GNOME. or open terminal and do the command nm-appt or something someone on the chat told me to do to try and get my wireless icon working.

Ubuntu :: Top Panel Icons Disappear Randomly?

Jun 27, 2010

Randomly, when I start up my computer, the top panel will have some icons missing, or an icon will be covered up by part of another.Example: Note that half of the battery icon is shown where the network manager applet should be. Here is what it is supposed to look like:

This happens very randomly. As you can see by the times, both of those were taken on the same day. I logged out and logged back in, and it look fine.

Ubuntu :: Top Panel Icons Disappear Behind The Right Edge Of Screen

Oct 14, 2010

Ubuntu 10.04 Gnome: I have about 5 PCs at home, and all of them have this problem.

The default ubuntu install places top panel icons in the following order:

.... john_doe, power |

The power button completely scrolls off the edge, and half of the user-id scrolls off as well, to look like this:

..................... john_|

I suspect this is a very common problem. How do I combat it?

Debian Installation :: Fresh Jessie Install - Cinnamon Can't Start

Sep 17, 2014

I recently have started playing with various distros (Mostly just Zorin and Debian) and have been trying to find a GUI I can actually comfortably use without wanting to punch my screen. This lead me to cinnamon which looks like something I could actually use.

I performed a fresh installation of Debian Jessie without the desktop environment and print server (System Utilities or whatever that option is called was left checked) and after the system installed and booted I proceeded to login as the root and install cinnamon. Unfortunately afterwards my system would be nothing but a black screen with a box saying that cinnamon had crashed and was running in fallback mode.

However if I let a fresh installation install the default GUI of xfce and then perform the cinnamon installation, cinnamon will install and run. My question is why doesn't a clean install with cinnamon work but installing cinnamon after another gui does? I don't get any apparent error messages beyond cinnamon crashing and I'm still fairly new to Linux.

Ubuntu Installation :: Parts Of Keyboard Freeze / Keys Do Not Response In Kubuntu & Windows 7 Login Screen?

Jul 12, 2011

I cannot use several keys (1,`, q, a, z & Esc) on my keyboard.I have just installed Kubuntu 11.04, AMD64 version via Wubi. Everything went well w/o any errors. At 1st boot, I also logged in w/o errors, and then tried some apps for Office & Network and shut down. The keyboard was still alright at that time. However, The problem started on the 2nd boot after the installation. Those keys do not response in Kubuntu & Windows 7 login screen and even in my PC's BIOS setup.

My laptop model is Dell Lattitude E6410, core i5, Intel HD Graphics, WD HDD 160GB. And I installed on the other partition, not my Windows one.

I just upgraded to ubuntu 10.04.Update worked well. But now the windows do not close properly, but remain as an inactive background display.As a side note, there's no startup screen, but just some screen garbage, as if an incorrect video driver would have been used.When I do move windows, their shade remains in the background, filling the background with garbage.

Debian Installation :: Removing Useless Parts Of GNOME

Mar 3, 2010

I've been trying to purge my system from packages I don't normally use, like Epiphany and Evolution, and I think I have been somewhat successful but I'm still struggling with GNOME when trying to keep the gnome-applets package and the system forces the installation of the evolution-data-server-common and libedataserverui1.2-8 packages.What is the role of this packages? Are they hard-wired into GNOME and cannot be remove at all? Or is there a way to discard the packages and keep the one I want?

I'm not doing this for the sake disk space; I'm only trying to take control of my desktop to always have the most clean system possible.
