Hey again, dear Wolfram Community,
Since it's now a year ago that I posted my questions concerning the Manipulate issues on Linux, I just want to give it another try, if somebody of you have encountered this problem and maybe have a solution!
I was hoping that Mathematica 10.1 and 10.2 would fix this issue, so I installed it but - without any success.
Instead, Manipulate now causes Kernel freezes, whereupon after some minutes I can decide whether to abort the calculation or wait - in both cases this leads to a Kernel crash. With this issue, Manipulate is not usable.
It seems, that this problem is not so seldom (http://mathematica.stackexchange.com/questions/86884/manipulate-code-crashes-v10-1).
So, I would be curious , if any of you has the same problem or runs Mathematica 10 on Mint/Ubuntu without this Manipulate issue?
P.S. As a solution for me, I use Mathematica 9 in cases I need Manipulate - but this is not very satisfying for me, because by now I'm used to the Mathematica 10 features ;)
