This thread was recommended because a few folks that are running Linux Mint 17.2 have had a few issues that we were discussing in other threads, and we were inadvertently hijacking the course of a couple of other threads. So this thread is designed to be a repository of all of the observations that us Bleeping Computer users might have regarding the functionality of Linux Mint 17.2. Since it has been finalized at the end of June, more and more users are probably installing Mint 17.2 and using it as their primary OS. For me, it is in daily use on my machine although I do dual boot with Windows 10. The only real problems I have see with Mint 17.2 are:
1. Thunderbird mail seemed to be in a constant update mode. It was still functional, I could send and read email, but the little bar at the bottom of the screen was always running and trying to update. That problem seemed to clear up on July 10th with some of the updates.
2. The new problem I have is when I walk up to the computer and wake it up from the sleep mode. Now I have to log in twice every time I want to use the computer. I have my computer set up to go to sleep after 10 minutes of non-activity, and to wake up with either a touch of the keyboard or a movement of the mouse. I had my Linux set up to go straight to the desktop without requiring a log in. Now not only do I have to log in but I have to log in twice. The first time that I log in it goes to the desktop, but about 1 second later it goes back to the log in screen. I hope that they fix this.
On the plus side the new Linux Mint 17.2 has been able to interact with all of my peripheral equipment, both wireless and USB connected. There have been no major hang ups, just the couple of little issues that I have documented. I will post any more observations in this thread as they arise.
