A quick search shows that there a lot of people with this error. Apparently, add-ons with poor code can cause a lot of trouble for the browser and Xorg. Here are a couple of solutions that I can think of right now. Start Chromium with the add-ons disabled and see if the issue is resolved. Uninstall Chromium and make sure to delete its data (cache, ...

Try reinstalling the display manager. If that does not work, install a different display manager. This will force debconf to reconfigure the display manager to be used.

I think perhaps avoiding Alt+Tab is a good idea. Cinnamon has hot corners - I have my corners set to present my windows as a grid of icons (Show All Windows) which is like 'Scale Windows' in Compiz, enabling me to direcly click the window I want next. For a keyboard cowboy (as you prefer ALT+TAB I guess this is you...) I'd recommend CTRL+ALT+UP and ...

This thread might be old but I've just stumbled upon dual monitors and panels. Using Mint 17.2 and cinnamon. You can Modify-->copy applet configuration on your main panel, and then paste it on your secondary monitor/panel. Some of the applets cannot work on both so mint will skip them. Works like a charm right now for me.

VirtualBox automatically captures keyboard input to give a smoother experience. So when you press alt + tab it shifts to VirtualBox and then the next alt + tab will happen within the VM. Here is your solution (Source): VirtualBox has a checkbox called "Auto Capture Keyboard" (> File > Preferences > Input). Turn it off. Now you will have to click inside ...

If you were using gnome-terminal you could set up a profile with the desired font size and pass it in using the flag --window-with-profile, but I don't see any related options in lxterminal. If you don't want this to be ...

Alt+F1,F2 are defined to open the application menu and application finder (I don't know how they are called in Cinnamon), so, changing the keyboard combination, to another should solve your issue.

Well, from GNOME 3.10, most of GNOME core apps uses *header bars (read release notes), so they need GNOME's window manager Mutter in order to function. That's why on them apps, Mutter overrides Cinnamon's window manager (aka Muffin) - in your case GEdit using Mutter instead of Muffin, so it looks different from other applications. About the ...

Removing a program just because you don't use it shows a misguided sense of priorities. Disk space is cheap. Gedit takes less than 2MB of disk space. Even at SSD RAID-1 prices, that costs less than ½¢. At the minimum wage in my country, it takes less than 2s to earn that much. It'll take you far more than 2 seconds to do this. The gains from removing the ...

Well, you asked if that is possible, then yes, it is, just sadly not in Cinnamon (as far as I know). But there is a KDE widget like that for KDE4. If you don't want to switch to KDE, there is still an option: a drop down terminal. I'd prefer Tilda, which is very lightweight, beautiful and customizable. You can easily install it with sudo apt-get install ...
