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  >:(

User Submitted Tutorials / Nemo Delete / Recycle Rubbish Warning!
« on: October 28, 2016, 05:15:45 am »
Aaarghh!!  :o
I've done one of the most dangerous things in any distro that has the function.
Accidently deleted files using the delete (with the red cross which bypasses the recycle bin)
Fortunately I have a backup.

For those who don't have a backup, here is a walkthrough to hide that function within nemo (file manager):

1. Open Nemo (File Manager)
2. In the menu at the top: Click Edit> Preferences
3. The 'File Manager Preferences' window will pop up.
4. Within this windows click on the 'Behaviour' tab at the top.
5. At the foot of the window there is a sub menu titled 'Rubbish Bin', untick the following within this section:

Include a Delete command that bypasses the Rubbish Bin


Bypass the Rubbish Bin when the Delete key is pressed

then close the 'File Management Preferences' window.

You will now find that if you right click a file within nemo, only the 'Move to Rubbish Bin' is visable.
This will save you the frustration of losing files accidently deleted.  ;)
