Would you like to try the release candidate of Peppermint 7:

Peppermint 7 (64bit) RC
https://peppermintos.info/rc/Peppermint-7-20160520-amd64.iso
md5 = 3039129e49dbb086656df4f5a81777c2

That version has the same issue in the LiveUSB.

Tried it on the live USB release candidate you posted.
All commands worked except for the killall mintUpdate. It said it wasn't running.

When peppermint-logout was called the bug was still there.

Well I'm baffled because those are really the  differences (besides the panel) between what we're running and what Lubuntu are running :-\

does it display if you first exit the panel ?

Open a terminal and run:
Code: [Select]
sudo killall xfce4-panelthen does
Code: [Select]
peppermint-logoutwork ?

If necessary you can restart the panel with
Code: [Select]
nohup xfce4-panelthen closing the the terminal with the close button.

[EDIT]

If that doesn't make a difference I guess we could try a different kernel .. but only from an installed version of Peppermint ?

I ran those commands on my installed version, as well as the RC version you gave me that I put on a live USB and the bug is still there for both.

"If that doesn't make a difference I guess we could try a different kernel .. but only from an installed version of Peppermint ?"

Sure. If you want to put something together I will test it.

Okey dokey, let's try the 4.7.2 kernel.....

It would be STRONGLY advisable to switch back to the open source nouveau driver and reboot BEFORE doing this

Open a terminal and run these commands in sequence:
Code: [Select]
mkdir ~/Desktop/kernel-4.7.2then
Code: [Select]
cd ~/Desktop/kernel-4.7.2then
Code: [Select]
wget http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v4.7.2/linux-headers-4.7.2-040702-generic_4.7.2-040702.201608201334_amd64.debthen
Code: [Select]
wget http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v4.7.2/linux-headers-4.7.2-040702_4.7.2-040702.201608201334_all.debthen
Code: [Select]
wget http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v4.7.2/linux-image-4.7.2-040702-generic_4.7.2-040702.201608201334_amd64.debthen
Code: [Select]
sudo dpkg -i *.debthen REBOOT

Once rebooted, check which kernel you're using with
Code: [Select]
uname -a

Gahhh... I was trying to get my fans working in Linux but failed, so I set my BIOS to its defaults hoping that might do it and now its gone back to "FAILED: nouveau"
I also tried changing UEFI to Other OS. That didn't work, so I disabled UEFI and I still get "FAILED: nouveau".


Should I try the steps you posted just above anyway?

Yeah, update the kernel, then you can try reloading the nvidia driver

I just tried adding an HDMI TV to my laptop, when I unplugged the TV I had the same problem on the laptop (no logout screen, but displaying on the taskbar) until I rebooted .. are you using multiple monitors ?

Or have you ever had multiple monitors attached ?

I have a HDMI TV that is plugged into my computer. I only use it to watch movies, so the TV is plugged in but off most of the time.

Well there is the bug! I turned on my TV and the logout panel is appearing on it and I can press the buttons on it if I move the mouse across to the second screen. However it does not show up on my computer monitor, if I click on the second desk top. I have only 2 desk tops.

If you unplug the TV and reboot, does peppermint-logout show ?

I'll try it. I have to warn you I just ran the commands above, so it might change something when I reboot.

Okay just rebooted and checked the kernel and got this

Linux MyName 4.7.2-040702-generic #201608201334 SMP Sat Aug 20 17:37:03 UTC 2016 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

Now the HDMI TV is unplugged, the panel appears and I can press its buttons.
