  • At the top of the welcome screen it still states: 16.06.1 Daniella, so no change there. "View History" in Pamac yields: Starting build: 4.4.19-1-MANJARO, which bumps the kernel up a notch. Might ...
  • On restating Manjaro this afternoon there was an update. Clicked apply, it ran, then 60+ updates appeared. Started it and checking details now says it's doing a "full system upgrade". Fingers ...
  • The proprietary video driver didn't solve the problem, plus introduced the old issue I've had with it of having to reset brightness on every boot/reboot, so I went back to the open source driver. W ...
  • Well, that's good to hear you're in the clear, and that it's just 'my' system. ;-) Have made some changes and am backing up Manjaro now. Will try some other video drivers and see what happens. ...
  • Can't look now but Settings l Appearance l Fonts looks right. The default font was Cantrell, or something like that, and below it is ClearlyU. Just clicking that took out the whole desktop. Oddly ...
  • Yeah, just one or so fonts down, "ClearlyU". Other info: Manjaro Xfce LTS 2009 iMac core 2 duo w/16GB RAM Graphics card: nVidia MCP7A [GeForce 9400] Will be busy next few days as well but when I ...
  • Alright guys, in the interest of research (to provide more info to the Manjaro Forum) I clicked another font in Manjaro to see what happened. It totally wiped my desktop again. A reboot which ...
  • Yeah, my 1920x1080 HD monitor works fine with the generic driver. Wonder what driver the install program would grab if you installed it in a partition on your HD, but that might not meet your ...
  • Sorry to hear Manjaro didn't work out for you but I've done the same thing, twice. So far I'm trying not to go the, "3 strikes and you're out!", route. ;-) Ironically, it was curiosity about Arch ...
  • No updates before I had the problems but I hadn't tried changing fonts until then. The flaked-out desktop just happened on it's own not long after that. I suppose it could have been somehow ...
  • At least you have a possible culprit, where some form of 'probation' may be indicated. ;-) In my case I had only been using Firefox in Manjaro, did a restart, pulled up Mint briefly, restarted ...
  • The other day I was trying out some of the other fonts that are included in Manjaro and found a couple I liked. While switching fonts for about the tenth time the desktop blanked out and wouldn't ...
  • Until this latest version Mint was quite a bit behind Ubuntu with kernel updates. The security breach earlier this year must have changed their thinking because now with Mint 18, kernel updates ...
  • In this case, wiser words have never been said.
  • That doesn't sound good. Dust maybe? You could pop the front off and if needed, vacuum it out. Haven't noticed excessive heat with my 2009 iMac but I'll keep a closer eye on it. Actually, running ...
  • Have been using several flavors of both Ubuntu and Mint for about 9 months now. After going back and forth a number of times (Unity, Cinnamon, Mate, KDE & Xfce) my personal preference is the ...
  • Sure, understand. So far that's been the case and although perhaps unlikely, it would be great if it continues.
  • Hasn't Apple always been stingy? Stingy with ports, stingy with RAM, stingy with hard drives, stingy with processors. They charge ridiculous prices but folks are wowed by the few things they ...
  • Ya got that right!!!
  • Update... Was getting ready to install Manjaro on the older iMac this afternoon, thinking my wife would be interested in trying it out (also hoping she'd like it so I could get rid of OS10 on the ...
