Many possibilities. At login time, usually, 3 steps are done: 1) At login time, the shell specified in /etc/passwd is launched. So I'd first have a look at /etc/passwd (using GUI as gedit, since you can't use terminal...) and check the shell (it's the last field). You may have a line like this for your user: user:x:500:500::/home/user:/bin/bash (You may ...

Linux Mint comes in two flavors. Ubuntu based Debian based (LMDE) The Ubuntu based version (the default one) is guaranteed to work with Ubuntu packages and the LMDE is guaranteed to be compatible with packages from the Debian repository. Even though most debs of Debian works in Ubuntu it still some non-compatible packages due to File system hierarchy ...

I expect library symbols will be different, even if you've got what appear to be the same versions in-place. As a half-measure, look for statically-built binaries; then you only have to worry about getting a myriad file locations all correct so the app stops complaining. In many, many cases, if not all, it's simpler to rebuild the app for the environment ...

Some xkb mappings have the non-breaking space assigned to a combination of key (for instance AltGr-Space or AltGr-Shift-Space). Some compose database also have a mapping (Compose space space for instance). You may be hitting one of those involuntarily.

Indeed, Geany is having an option to insert an alternative space. You can find the option inside the "Insert" menu and/or you can set a keybidng for it (inside the insert section of keybedings). In default there should be no keybinding set for.

So I also asked for help on the Linux Mint forums and some awesome user solved my problem. Apparently, by using the above command I modified the content of /etc/environment. It should only contain the following: ...

You'll probably still be able to log in in text mode. Press Ctrl+Alt+F1 and enter your user name and password at the login: and password: prompts, then run sudo -s to get a root shell. If you have a root password, you can log in as root directly. The error looks like a failed attempt to set PATH. It's consistent with having an extra space in an assignment, ...

To be sure that your machine generates a "core" file when a core is generated then you should confirm "systcl" settings of your machine. IMO, following should be the settings (minimal) in /etc/sysctl.conf kernel.core_pattern = /var/crash/core.%t.%p kernel.panic=10 kernel.unknown_nmi_panic=1 Do not forget to execute "sysclt -p" after making changes in ...

As others have mentioned it's likely to a specific service or process, which you should be able to kill. You can start gnome-system-monitor as root to see all of the processes on the system and their CPU load. Instead of rebooting next time try a few things: Use the CTRL+ALT+F1 through F7 to switch to another terminal. This will cause your X graphics ...

IMO, You need to identify the service which you want to restart(use "top" command for the same). You will have to be cautious while choosing a service to restart. For an ex: top will also list "firefox" so you should refrain from killing it as you do not want to close it.

Linux Mint 17.1 only "ships" with Cinnamon, MATE, KDE and Xfce, but you can install GNOME afterwards.

A desktop environment is just a set of bits like anything else you run on a computer - you can download your environment to a USB stick or DVD/CD - whatever. Download the .rpm or .deb and put it anywhere you want. One thing I would say is that you should be more concerned about your machine resources than looking like Windows. The basics are identical for ...

Recommendations are personal and liable to become out of date. That said, I would not disagree with your idea of Linux Mint Cinnamon - this is probably the prettiest (most elegant-looking) Linux distro at the moment. But whichever distro you select, I suggest you try it first in a virtual machine. You can download Virtual Box and then download a Cinnamon ...

The message means that, for some reason, apt-get upgrade determined that it should leave those three packages alone. Generally speaking that's because upgrading them would break something else. You can try sudo apt-get dist-upgrade instead to see what apt-get does if you let it remove packages as well. You'll always be asked to confirm before a package is ...

In order to access my cell phone I had to install mtp-server via the Synaptic Package Manager on my Linux Mint 17.1 Mate. My previous Linux Mint 17 Mate didn't require me to install mtp-server, my cell phone was recognized automatically upon connecting via usb port. Maybe this info will help.

Install the ecryptfs package. Run the command ecryptfs-mount-private. It will prompt you for a password, enter the password for your account on Mint. Installing the package also adds pam_ecryptfs to the PAM configuration, so from now on, if you use the same password for your account and for your ecryptfs passphrase, your encrypted home directory will be ...

From what I've gathered from Mint's repositories, Mint 17 (Qiana) is based on Ubuntu 14.04 (Trusty Tahr), and instead of hosting everything themselves, Mint rely on the Ubuntu repositories to provide all the packages that haven't been modified by Mint. This includes base-files, which contains /etc/issue etc.; it seems that Mint installs the Ubuntu version of ...

I got these messages several times the last 6-7 months and always selected "No" on them, without any problems. The /etc/issue file is only used in the login message and/or message of the day, if at all, and not for deriving any other settings on the system.
