This has been an ongoing issue with Cinnamon and to my knowledge this functionality still isn't available out of the box. This thread mentions a program called gDevilspie that supposedly allows you to configure the default window positions. I don't have any experience with it, though.

According to this link, the default login window theme does not support changing desktop environments. Switching from the Mint-X theme to Linux Mint GDM should resolve the issue. The theme can be changed at: Menu -> Administration -> Login Window -> Theme

Try and set your preferred email programm to Thunderbird. I use Debian with xfce and if I go to Preferences->Preferred Applications and set it to Evolution, Simple Scan opens mails with Evolution. I am sure there is a comparable approach in Mint.

For whatever reason Linux Mint sometimes has problems shutting down after boot from CD. (what is even weirder, for me it was happening for apparently 2 different reasons with different things displayed on screen) When it reaches that stage simply click the power button - it's not using the hard drive at this point and can't corrupt any data.

sorry can't comment Check if it gets better if you turn hardware acceleration on. Download the video, open with Chrome (which seems to be your browser). If it uses less CPU, it's a problem with how your browser plays HTML5 video and you can fix it by opening the video in new tab (which sadly will be problematic with Youtube and the similar). If it uses the ...

I believe your setting is extended view. Having multiple taskbar for each workspace/monitor isn't possible, yet, as far as I know. If you need a shortcut to an app, place the shortcut on the desktop and drag it to the second monitor or just create one there. It is not possible to run duplicate process simultaneously. If you want to see the same thing on ...

When the kernel panics, it means something has gone wrong in the kernel. Writing log files and core dumps requires using the drivers for the block device (your disk) and the filesystem (space has to be allocated, and the size of the log file has to be updated). Given those services that are provided by the kernel are required in order to write files, and ...

Usually you would run: sudo apt-get update followed by sudo apt-get install okular That should do it. If you having problems beyond that then you can try sudo apt-get install oxygen-icon-theme* After that it's off to google.

In "auto mode", update-alternatives will always select the alternative with the highest priority. If a new or upgraded package is installed which has a higher priority than any other alternative, it will be chosen as the auto alternative. In "manual mode", update-alternatives will never override the sysadmin's choice, no matter what the relative priorities ...

After reading @travis-pessetto 's answer to the question "Can't access Eduroam wireless internet connection SETTINGS (Linux Mint 17)", I thought it was worthwhile to note that the CAT eduroam installer only worked for me with root privileges: sudo ./eduroam-linux-<your_institution>.sh

For configuring network from a terminal, if you remember (or can use another router to find out) what the network config of your router is (IP range, default GW, DNS servers), you don't even have to configure DHCP, just: ifconfig eth0 someipinrange netmask thenetmask route add default gw gateway ping 8.8.8.8 cp -a /etc/resolv.conf /etc/resolv.conf.backup ...

Find and add that key. Often something like this will work gpg --keyserver wwwkeys.uk.pgp.net --recv-keys 3EE67F3D0FF405B2 gpg --armor --export 3EE67F3D0FF405B2 | sudo apt-key add - But mixing repositories for different debian distributions are rarely a good idea. As a bare minimum you should set up apt pinning to give that repo a low priority, else you ...
