#StackBounty: #linux #linux-mint #blank-screen Why Is My GUI Screen Blank On Linux Startup When I Can Still See & Use The Login Scr…

Bounty: 50

I’m not very experienced with Linux (at all), so please forgive me if I am using terms incorrectly.

I am running Mint on my laptop (an old Dell). I had no issues until I downloaded Zoom yesterday. Now there’s a problem.

I can see the login screen with the box to verify my username and type in the password. But once I do that, I’m brought to the GUI screen with nothing visible except the mouse cursor. I can move it around but there’s nothing to see or click, just a black screen.

I am able to go to the command terminal (wrong term? It’s the text screen to enter code) and I have learned how to view the desktop content as text. It’s all there as far as I can tell by reading file names.

Does anyone know how I can do a simple fix to see and interact with my desktop again?

#StackBounty: #linux-mint #cinnamon #window #nemo Make app open to default size on Linux Mint 19.1

Bounty: 50

I am using Linux Mint 19.1, with the Cinnamon desktop.

I am wondering if there is a way to force an application to open the window to a specific size (specifically the nemo file manager).

In Cinnamons Windows settings, I can specify where I want new windows to open by default, but I can not specify any sort of rule for how I want it to be size…..which really bothers me.

When I commonly snap a nemo instance to the side 50% of the screen, it really annoys me when I reopen nemo and it is open in the center, at half width, full height. This happens because it is remembering the the dimensions of the last time it was opened (snapped to the side).

Is there a way that I can force new windows to open, not only at a specific location (center), but also at a specific dimension or aspect ratio. Or at the very least, don’t have new windows for an app remember the old windows dimension.

#StackBounty: #linux-mint #system-installation #secure-boot Disabling secure boot and third party drivers

Bounty: 50

Whilst installing linux mint 19.1 cinnamon i checked the “I want third party drivers box”.
However, upon checking that box i was prompted to create a password in order to disable secure boot.

Thus, i disabled secure boot after rebooting my machine, as prompted.

Now however, after rebooting (and with every boot up) my monitor displays a huge warning reading “booting into insecure mode”, before displaying the mint login screen.

Is this now something that i should not be bothered with, or did i mess up the installation process somewhere along the line? And is using this “insecure” mode somehow making me more susceptible to any “attacks” or the like – which the name seems to imply to a layman like me?

#StackBounty: #linux-mint #screensaver #x #light-locker After unlocking light-locker, screen remains blank proportional to how long it&…

Bounty: 50

Weird problem that I’ve been having I think since I installed Linux Mint 19. I run xkcd and light-locker is my screen locker. Whenever I unlock my screen with my password, my screen remains black for a time before showing me the desktop. From what I can tell, while it’s black, my desktop is accessible and I can mouse over things and see the cursor change, even open menus, etc. It’s just all black. Eventually the desktop shows up and everything is fine.

Another odd aspect of this problem is that the screen remains black for a proportional time to how long it’s been locked. The longer it’s been locked, the longer it remains black after unlocking. So for instance if I lock the screen for a few minutes, the screen only remains black for a second, but if I lock it for a day, it remains black for a minute.

I checked the .xsession-errors and syslog and couldn’t find any clues. I’ve upgraded packages, rebooted, etc. and nothing seems to fix it. Anyone experienced this before or have an idea? I’m running the nouveau video drivers with a GeForce GTX 1050 and a GeForce GT 610 installed with three screens.
