tried in linux mint 18. works fine

2022 years ago

tried in linux mint 18.3 64 bit and after setting switch to "start with linux" my system has a shut down delay and a message that "gnome keyring deamon" ist still running.
after several tries i and restarts with different settings, i found out, that LM 18.3 Cinnamon only shuts down fast and correct after turning upnamed switch in "off" position.
further several (about 4) dependencies are missing under LM 18.3 Cin. which get installed during setup process. cause of no solution for keyring/shut down delay i purged conky manager – but the co-installed packages stayed on my system.
