mintUpdate is now 3.7.4 and caused no problems in itself for me
Before you try again run
Code: Select all
apt update

in a terminal - could fix it

What did I do wrong lol?
I have in my Home Folder a folder I want to share so I right-click on it, go in Sharing Options, I check Share This Folder & Guest access.
Now if I go on my little brother's laptop with Windoze installed on it, I can access my shared folder without problems.
When I go on my big brother's pc with Gloria RC1 installed on it, I can't access my shared folder. Here's what I get
Unable to mount location
Failed to retrieve share list from server


EDIT: I'm able to access the folder now after I've rebooted the other pc :)

Mint Update Bug

Thanks, Husse, but I still can't update properly. I also tried apt-get update . New error message:

W: A error occurred during the signature verification. The repository is not updated and the previous index files will be used.GPG error: http://packages.linuxmint.com gloria Release: The following signatures were invalid: BADSIG 3EE67F3D0FF405B2 Clement Lefebvre (Linux Mint Package Repository v1) <root@linuxmint.com>

@ jojo
This BADSIG error should be noticed by everyone not just one person - right now I don't know what it may be
Clem reads this topic so let it be for the moment

on http://www.pendrivelinux.com/linux-mint-6-flash-drive-install-via-cd/ you have a short tutorial on how to do it for Felicia and basically,
you have to "sudo apt-get install usb-creator" to do this.
In other words, what you'd like is for Gloria to come with this tiny application which is a good idea! :D
I hope they'll add it


I found unetbootin worked with Mint Gloria but usb-creator didn't!
Both are available in Synaptic in any case. :)

Edit: I gave usb-creator another go and it worked this time, nevermind!

BopNiblets wrote:I'm also having problems with mintUpdate!
The startup one
/usr/lib/linuxmint/mintUpdate/mintUpdate.py

doesn't show an icon, but mintUpdate on its own or from the menu does.

Also, another bug I see is "User will login in ** seconds" still shows in the login screen even after I unchecked Enable Timed Login.
I tried it with different values and it still shows up when unchecked, doesn't count down, just stays there.

Both of these are fixed now, awesome! :D

Not at all sure this is a bug! Twice out of 50+ start-ups I've had the system "hang" forever right after X starts.

The mouse pointer shows far left, about centered from top to bottom, and things just stay there forever.

I finally have to hit Alt > SysRq + b (no point in running reisub because nothing else has mounted) and the system reboots and all is fine!

Just thought I should mention it, I've not experienced the same behavior in Jaunty.

Something you should know is that I'm running a Hanns-G 22" monitor w/1680x1050 native resolution, but due to my poor visual accuity I use 1440x900, so the monitor always "stalls" (and displays that it's readjusting) for 10 seconds while it's readjusting!

Using 1680x1050 requires that I increase the dpi and fonts to where things are simply distorted! Like lines overlap on many webpages!

The kids hate using my computer because my settings always look "cartoonish" to them!

Hi, sorry if this had been mentioned. not sure if its my system or the release.

when i first installed RC1 i was apt-get ing the programs i wanted (i only use the command line, i don't like the gui updaters/installers) and it told me that i should use apt-get autoremove to get rid of loads of un-needed packages. i did this, blindly, trusting the system and it removed half my system.
I corrected it by doing apt-get install mint-meta-main but now it is telling me yet again that i should uninstall this huge list of *un-needed* packages!!

Here is a list of them all:
Code: Select all
The following packages were automatically installed and are no longer required:
  libopenal1 gcj-4.3-base libmoon gnome-do libstdc++5 evolution-webcal

Use 'apt-get autoremove' to remove them.

This is a strange bug that has to do with a problem that the packages were marked as auto-installed
This is fixed in the final

oops, i forgot to mention this bug.

(from the bug list)
If I go at the mint menu, and type in the filter in my language a word of a name of an application which is in my language again, it cannot find it, although I can see that I am writing exactly the same word.


same thing had happened to me.
nothing changed when I typed names in some other languages. (chinese, japanese, korean)
it seems filter works fine only when the input starts with an alphabet.

On the Italian version on the mintMenu for the "All the application" label I see "Toutes les applications" instead of the correct "Tutte le applicazioni".

Can you fix it ASAP, please? :)

PS: great, great version, really! :D

Code: Select all

removed many of packages from my computer. How to get those back? Even "Terminal" is not available any more in right click of mouse. :(

[Update]
Problem solved. :D But "Open as root" is missing in Nautilus.

Windows go AWOL after KVM switch

Postby cobaia on Wed May 20, 2009 3:06 pm

I installed Mint succesfully at first attempt on dual-core Atom using 4 GB memory stick as the "hard disk". Looks very nice (so far, I have gone in sync with Ubuntu releases). There's one immediately strange thing happening:

I have a TrendNet 4-port USB KVM switch. Sometimes when I switch back to Mint, the window that was "on top" vanishes (in less than second of seeing the screen WITH the window in place). No corresponding icon at the bottom, but from process list I can see that the processes in the missing window are happily running along, so the window did not get zapped, it just "went somewhere else". Like the window got moved to another virtual screen, but as far as I can tell, there is no virtual screen manager active by default?

I am a complete novice with Mint, so forgive me if this is something trivial...

Another one was that I could not upgrade the system with the indicated new packages immediately after booting (got the message that APT is in use by someone else), yet by opening terminal and typing "sudo apt-get dist-upgrade" was OK...

Maybe it was just a timing issue of some background process messing up with repositories. Where I live, network is slooow...

Cheers,

Cobaia

One more bug also that has to do with other languages, is the size of the popup window that is opening when you want to terminate a program. What I've noticed with Pigdin is that the buttons became bigger because of the size of the translated words, but the size of the termination window has not increased accordingly so to fit the buttons that are now bigger. The result is that a part of a button and some text of the confirmation message are not shown. Is this Mint's fault, Gnome's fault or Pigdin's? (again tested in greek, yeap we have big words :P)

Hi
I am using an installed Mint7:RC1 and have the following problem with installing Amazon MP3 Downloader .deb file. The Package Installer tells me in red 'Dependency is not satisfiable:libboost-regex1.33.1' I have installed libboost-regex1.35.0 and libboost-regex1.35-dev with Synaptic but it still does not install. It worked fine with Mint 6. Any ideas please.

Do you mean the notifications that came the Jaunty base? Not if it's these notifications that you speak of. Take a look here for an example of what I think you are asking about.

I second that.

@clem:
I haven't gone through all the posts in this thread, so I don't know if the following bug has been already reported. Here it goes:

After I right-click on the Trash icon in Mintmenu and select Empty trash, I can't select the search field in Mintmenu. Also, Mintmenu stays open even if I click elsewhere in the desktop. The only way to close it is either by clicking Menu or hitting the Super key
If you have a question that has been answered and solved, then please edit your original post and put a [SOLVED] at the end of your subject header.
