Sorry to disturb you, but have no other choice. Google gives nothing about that problem. Searching for 2 days, and trying to fix my on my own… but NO LUCK, and even not competent enough.
After update of Lubuntu 18.04 my Transmission (Torrent transmission-gtk.desktop) BEGIN TO BEHAVE LIKE A VIRUS. First disappeared all downloads… but downloading at max. of almost 2 MB/s… AND Suddenly the window width become enormous VERY LONG, all close, max… and so on buttons pushed far away on the right. After pulling several times i saw all the buttons there. So I said, let’s reboot like in win, it might help.
It didn’t… so searching here and there… nothing… trying to fix it on my own… and nothing again. PURGE, INSTALL, REINSTALL, UNINSTALL… EVEN FROM THE SW (org.gnome.Software.desktop) NOTHING HELPED, THE SAME PROBLEM.
So I looked into: /home/USER/.config/transmission the settings.json file and AHHAAA…: “main-window-width”: 8002, i change that to (Transmission was not active) “main-window-width”: 800, and when i launch it again the transmission is the same and the file changed again to: “main-window-width”: 8002, Making it with gedit or visually… no difference… always the same result. What is correcting back all that?
my Desktop Monitor Resolution 1920×1080
I even deleted all the cache in: /home/USER/.cache
Where can you delete all local session on Lubuntu? All answers for KDE, but we have no such files as they say to delete to fix the problem.
And the other thing also the transmission now runs on 33KB after a reboot.
Hope I can get some hint, otherwise i drop the part. table and format everything again,… but this time I install the old 18.04 and disable the updates… ONLY PROBLEMS WITH UPDATES, from java, then the old 8.0 java programs don’t work anymore, and so forth.
Please don’t get angry on my frustration, but prefer to have a working, than a new kernels. I maybe downgrade even to 16.04, because of the PCManFM 1.2.5, is crashing at least 20, 30 times a day… and for me, it is still the best, and prefer to have old, but good,… instead of nautilus, or others. Or the others everything is so limited. Little control over features. HABIT IS A BAD BEAST.
One other thing. Why is ubuntu/lubuntu acting like Microsoft?!! All those 16.04 with old java ISO’s you can not find online to download anymore. All those 16.04 numbers are fake. If they update something they should putt 18.04.00012423 and so forth… and leave us to choose, if we wish to download older first NATIVE versions. Also all versions of lubuntu and even others disappeared under the version 14. Where can you find that now? Mozilla even WORSE. ALL THOSE OLD PLUGIN’s/ADDONS REMOVED. WHERE CAN YOU FIND THOSE NOW? I WILL NOT USE FireFox ABOVE 56!!! Because of plugins. There’s also opera, chromium and so forth. YOU CAN NOT FORCE THAT FASHISM WITH NEVER VERSION’s. YOU REMOVE AND DELETE ALL ADDONS, FINE WE WILL NOT UPGRADE. WILL CONTINUE TO DOWNGRADE, AND USE OTHER BROWSERS INSTEAD. STUPID MS POLITIC. MS LOST A LOT OF USERS BECAUSE OF THAT. NOW WITH NEW Open Source SW,… they will not bring us back. We will use those but on linux instead. 😉 Sorry. YOU LIMIT MY FREEDOM AND I GO NUTS.
I have a lot of older computers, and I like old stuff like win95, 3.11, doss 6.0 and so forth, even commodore 64, 128, amiga. 😉 Remember the cassettes. 😉 Best computer ever. Those were the days. Wish to return back. OPEN HACKING. 😉 Little or no secrets.
Please no hard feelings. Not my intention to offend. Linux can crash my PCManFM 666 times a day. WILL NOT RETURN TO MSWIN FOR SURE. Never saw a blue screen in linux, viruses and so forth. 😉
Thank you for your answers in advance. No hard feelings again. Warmest regards to you all.
