Still on Pre-Respin PM7 and is standing the test of time, kodi abuse and being used more than the inferior  BSOD Operating Systems I have..anyway that's another matter.

Over time my lightDM GTK+ greeter is intermittently showing the screen or just not bothering sometimes.  >:(
Another thing it does is, briefly show the greeter screen and then quickly go to the desktop screen before I have a chance to log in within seconds of start-up.
is this connected? If so, how can it be fixed? Is there a way to reset this, so it works all the time again?

Thanks in advance.

All USB, SDCards and streaming, still have a USB floppy drive which comes in real handy for vintage computing tech.
Sometimes wish I still had my iomega zip drive  :(

I've had that many blank CD's, I used them are as coasters to sit my beer on, bird scarers for the garden and christmas tree decorations.
Thats what I think of CD/DVD drives!  :D

Have you tried reverting back to a previous kernel version?
Did notice you have the latest for PM7-64bit which was updated a few days ago via the mint-updater
I has exactly the same issue a few months back and it turned out to be the new kernel.

Absolutely miss my CorelDRAW Suite..when using Linux.
Started on CorelDRAW 8 back in 1999 thru 9,10,11 and now on X5. (Working experience/ design and enthusiast)
X5 version being the MAIN reason for using Windows 7 Pro alongside Auto-CAD 2010 which is isolated from the Internet.
Gimp and Ink scape are acceptable substitutes but no match for CorelDRAW X5.

Thanks for clearing that up PCNETSpec.
Yeah done a search on the main page for checksums and found those..
I'm in the habit of checking file integrity prior to creating an installation media to be on the safe side  ;)

Quick Question:
Are these the correct Peppermint 7 Respin SHA256sums for the updated respin?
or are these the previous Peppermint 7 Respin SHA256sums?

Put my mind at rest and perhaps other..

I sure hope this doesn't stop him doing other reviews, his is one of the channels I watch for ideas (that we can steal) for Peppermint.
Liking your train of thought.. ;D

I'd likely think that there are newbies looking at this thinking..I wonder what would happen if..?
My advice to newbies is to stick with what is available via peppermint. :)

Seasoned Linux users, I would more than likely go with the Mint Update solution.  ;)
But hey, it's your PC!

This to me, is even more reassuring compared to other OSes that are having problems with upgrades and updates.  :D
Nice explanation guys!

My ode to Peppermit OS:

Peppermint OS suck it and see with a taste that's sure to tease,
lxde with xfce that's likely just to please.
With apps in a store, we know you'll want more and it's all at your discretion
but if in doubt, give Mark a shout and he'll point you in the right direction.  ;)

What is highlighted in your pic has always been ticked on my system.
I always want confirmation of any delete.  ;)
I will try and replicate with dummy files..

Ok just made two dummy files and deleted using the 'bypass rubbish bin' and the confirmation does come up upon deletion.
Strange, this didn't happen before when the accidental deletion occurred?? Otherwise I wouldn't have done this warning thread.
The files/folders just vanished.  :-\
No matter now as it seems to be working as intended.

No, there wasn't a prompt after pressing delete, the folder/ files just went..
I take it there should be then?
I'm not using it now but, it's still worth warning about.

It was one of those knee jerk reactions (or finger/mouse reactions) that caused it.
Realisation was immediate.. :o  >:(
