  • Yeah, but haven't been able to get out as much since the shutter was replaced and have less than 4000 shots on it. Even the cheapest entry-level camera shutter should last much longer than that! Ha ...
  • When I took the lens off to see what was happening the mirror was stuck up and the shutter was completely closed. Guess you could say it was 100% shadowing. Since this is an already replaced ...
  • Got a response back from Nikon saying to remove the SD cards, put in charged battery and do the 2-button reset. No change but I did notice that it sticks at high shutter speeds now too. So I called ...
  • Likely. Sort of: http://arstechnica.com/information-technology/2016/04/even-at-1-0-vivaldi-closes-in-on-the-cure-for-the-common-browser/

    Couldn't get it to install in Ubuntu 16.04 so was going to try to install it in Mint. Now that you mention security though, maybe I'll just wait...

    Downloaded it but it wouldn't install in Ubuntu 16.04. Weird.
  • Was reading about it just an hour ago and was thinking of giving it a try. Have you installed and given it a test run yet?
  • Good to hear it seems to have installed well and boots quickly. Mine is in a partition on an old 500GB spinner but still boots quickly compared to OS X. Haven't had a problem with Software yet but ...
  • Have had similar printer issues as you mention, but these printers work fine with all other operating systems I've tried, and they installed quickly and easily in Mint and previous versions of Ubuntu.
  • That's good to hear, I'll download the ISO file and give it a try. BTW, last evening I bumped the kernel in Mint 17.3 Xfce up to 4.2.0-18 with no ill effects. Everything seems to be very stable and ...
  • Have OS X 10.11.4, Mint 17.3 Xfce and Ubuntu 16.04 in partitions on a 2009 iMac (Core 2 duo with 16GB RAM). They all run well but I've had problems with KDE installs before. I really liked Kubuntu ...
  • The more up-to-date security measures of later kernels seems wise. Do you think it would be a mistake to run Mint with the same kernel Ubuntu 16.04 is running, 4.4.0-21, or would 4.2.0 be a better ...
  • Have been wondering where the best compromise might be.
  • Yeah, Mint seems almost too conservative. I bumped it above the recommended kernel to 3.19.0-58 last week with no ill effects, was thinking of going to 4.2.0. Was surprised to see Ubuntu 16.04 is ...
  • Got my D750 Nov 2014 also and sent it in 10 months ago for the service advisories. Been working great until last week when the first shutter hang and ERR message occurred. So far it only happens ...
  • Will definitely do clean installs from now on. Yes, I do all those. Great tips.
  • Thinking back, I've never had an upgrade from within Linux go well. Will remember that a clean install is the way to go.
  • That's good to hear.
  • Since my journey into Manjaro-land didn't go well recently, I decided to give Ubuntu 16.04 another try. As outlined above, I'd tried upgrading from Ubuntu 15.10 (non-LTS) to 16.04 LTS through ...
  • Replied in Manjaro
    It's too bad things went south because I liked Manjaro. Yes, have also had a range of boot problems when trying various distros but have always been able to remove a Grub and/or rEFInd entry for a ...
