New Bluetooth Headphones arrived.


Bluetooth A2DP worked out of the box  :)

What make and model?

The Headphones are Acoustic Solutions.

Cant find a Model number......Looks like a Argos own brand.

Works OK .

Probably not as it's viewed as non-essential.

Interesting problem this Morning.


Booted up LL 3.8x64 beta and it took about 10 minutes to get to the Desktop.


On the desktop it was a complete freeze........No mouse or keyboard.


Did a hard shutdown and removed the HDD.


Replaced the HDD and did a full re-install of the beta.


System is working perfectly.


Am fairly confident this was a HDD problem but thought I would let you know.

Thank you for your effort, i always had been using linux lite as reliable distro,sometimes as main distro and now definetly in dual boot with LM..as far as i have been "driving" beta, i did not feel it is beta at all..for me it is complete disto subjectively and i had no crashes..But release date of stable version is very soon and for now i will be patient

I am reporting the same problem that Mike was having with the mouse theme not lasting through a reboot (no problem if only logout or suspend).  I have two laptops running LL3.6 updated to yesterday (both older models Core2 Duo Intel processors) and both have exactly same issue (black theme turns white on reboot).  Have you had a chance to investigate this problem Jerry?  Of course it is easily fixed by going to Mouse Theme and clicking Default followed by Black Theme and will stay black until next reboot.  Not sure when this problem started but think before Xmas at least.

@DenW @Mike bug confirmed.

Workaround:

Code: [Select]
sudo update-alternatives --config x-cursor-theme

DMZ bug looks wide spread across distros. Anyone have an alternative 'non-flashy' basic mouse theme similar to DMZ that isn't buggy? I'd like to have the mouse theme working properly in 4.x

Thanks Jerry for your workaround but before I use it what exactly does it do and can it be undone?!
I am giving one of the laptops to my daughter and am reluctant to apply your workaround until I understand better what it does as she will not be using the terminal except by my remote control.
I was thinking of manually editing the /usr/share/icons/default/index.theme file to "Inherits=DMZ-Black", which should work as long as you want Black cursor theme as default (MX-16 has this in their file as they use a default dark theme on the desktop).
I tried Peppermint 8 and it works fine by default but I did notice the cursor changes from default white to black after user login and late in rest of bootup sequence (I know it is a mix of XFCE and LXDE but file setup for cursor theme is as for Linux Lite).
I also checked Linux Mint 18.3 XFCE but it fails in the same way that Linux Lite does.
Sorry cannot suggest alternative cursor themes as all distros I have seen use same themes.

It's set the default cursor theme and keeps it. Exactly what it should do.

@Jerry Thanks for looking into this. The OpenZone cursor theme is quite nice and not too flashy (in my opinion). https://github.com/ducakar/openzone-cursors

I use OpenZone too and agree @Mike  it's nice and clean lines.
