I don't think this has to do with fonts. The invisible windows look like a graphics stack problem. Try switching to a non-compositing window manager temporarily, and see if the problem goes away. Re corrupt files, I'm not sure how they'd get corrupted unless they were being written or replaced during the crash. I suppose font caches and such might be ...

My best guess would be that you had more than one copy of VLC installed. apt-get purge removed the system-wide copy, but will have left any other that may be in your path. You could use the command which vlc to get a full path.

Sometimes, a reinstall might not work because there may be dependencies that are corrupt, but not reinstalled because the OS thinks they're good. Try these: On your invisible terminal, try installing debsums. sudo apt-get install debsums. Then, a visible terminal would really help at this point. Init the freshly-installed package. sudo debsums_init Then, ...

Does this command work for you (uses wmctrl): dist500fromright=$((`xrandr | grep \* | awk '{print $1}' | sed 's/x.*$//'`-500));y=`xrandr | grep \* | awk '{print $1}' | sed 's/^.*x//'`;wmctrl -r :ACTIVE: -b add,maximized_vert && wmctrl -r :ACTIVE: -e 0,$dist500fromright,0,500,$y Breakdown xrandr outputs a list of geometries and the * shows the ...

Two solutions: OSX Virtual Machine: Run a VMWare OSX image inside Linux and install XCode. You will have the most accurate iOS emulator where you can choose iPad2, iPad. iPhone5, iPhone6, 6+, rotation of screen, etc. Google Chrome: Load your webpage, right click and click on Inspect Element. On the new window called Developer Tools click on the mobile ...

Memory Issue This is most probably a memory issue. One thing to do is to limit the memory usage of imagemagick. As mentioned here: -limit type value, you can limit your usage using these options: -limit memory 512MiB -limit map 512MiB Further, as you're saying that it is slow even AFTER imagemagick is run, in that case look for some ghost processes ...

The quickest way to test it would be through a browser extension that automatically resizes the browser to resolutions specific to mobile devices. There's even extensions that will request mobile sites. The not so quick way, is to use an online simulator like http://transmog.net/ or ...

You might need to remove some maximization flags first: wmctrl -r :ACTIVE: -b remove,maximized_vert,maximized_horz;\ xdotool getactivewindow windowsize 500 1080 windowmove 1420 0;\ wmctrl -r :ACTIVE: -b add,maximized_vert

This appears to be related to the default shell, which is dash not bash. ls -l /bin/sh Based on this answer given by @Gilles, you could try changing the first line of your configure script. Change this #!/bin/sh to #!/bin/bash See also this from the Linux Mint forums. You can verify the default shell with this command. readlink -f /bin/sh ...

That is two very separate questions. First, wine and viruses. The truth is that when running wine you are allowing windows programs to run inside Linux. In theory this allows viruses too. There are some real limits, for example wine doesn't have direct access to hardware, and it's C:\ drive is just a folder in your home directory, but yes you can get ...

I think you were very close. Just go into Settings => Startup Programs and then click on the Options tab. There, you will see a checkbox saying Automatically remember running applications when logging out Just uncheck it.

You need to purge vlc-nox as well: apt-get purge vlc-nox In general to find out where a file comes from, dpkg -S comes in handy; in this instance you'd run dpkg -S /usr/bin/vlc

Looks like compositor in Cinnamon is not working properly, it is probably an issue with your drivers. Unfortunately, it seems that you can't disable compositing in cinnamon manually: Github issue. My suggestion is to install some non-compositing wm like openbox and try if this issue will reproduce. Besides, try different drivers. Now you use drivers: ...

Wait, the terminal text is invisible AND you don't see text in dropdown-boxes from X-Windows widgets?? That sounds like a font problem to me. You do know you have a console, right? CTL-ALT-F1 should get you there. At least then you have a working, local terminal, one which you can read. (Usually, ALT-F7 gets you back to X, but I can't say for sure on your ...

Petra is based on Ubuntu 13.10, Saucy Salamander. The Saucy files were kept around on http://archive.ubuntu.com until a few days ago; they are now available on http://old-releases.ubuntu.com. If you really want to continue using Petra, you should replace "archive" with "old-releases" in your /etc/apt/sources.list configuration file. There hasn't been any ...

There are several ways, but I think the easiest is to install the NoSquint Extention, which lets you set a default zoom level (for text and overall separately, if needed), and also makes it easy to adjust on a site-by-site basis.

If the program runs on PlayOnLinux well and you are satisfied with that, it will most probably be faster than in a VM. This would be my first preference. You can check applications' combatibility at WineHQ. Running windows programs in a Virtual Machine (like with VirtualBox or KVM or VMware) is quite convenient, especially for non 3D-games. However, ...

Actually I got it working thanks to this blog. The interesting bit is : To run 1Password on Ubuntu 14.04, install Wine via apt-get. You must start both 1Password.exe and Agile1Agent.exe to get connection to the browser. Here's my script: #!/bin/bash echo "Starting 1Password..." wine ~/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files\ \(x86\)/1Password\ 4/1Password.exe ...
