This post is for Oracle VirtualBox and Linux Mint over Remote Desktop Connection.
If you ever run into a problem when using Linux Mint with Oracle VirtualBox over Remote Desktop Connection and it says “Cinnamon just crashed, you are currently running in Fallback Mode Restart Cinnamon?”
If you select Yes, then Cinnamon crashes again…and again. There’s a simple fix. Power Off the VM. Go into Oracle Virtual Box Settings for the VM. Under Display, uncheck 3D acceleration. Power the VM on and that should fix it.
I hope this saves you some precious time.
