Mint 8 RC1 does not recognize mp3 player (Sansa clip) when it is intitally connected (nothing happens, no menu pops up asking what you want to do with the device).

When I boot up with the mp3 player already connected it shows up in Places but when I try to access it I get:

DBus error org.gtk.Private.RemoteVolumeMonitor.Failed:An operation is already pending

LOST PANEL APPLET

Postby npap on Wed Nov 25, 2009 4:09 pm

Bug: the sound volume control applet has disappeared from the Gnome panel.

NOTE: The Volume Control icon (speaker icon) is missing from the "Add To Panel" set of icons, so it is impossible to add to panel.
This applies to the live CD also.

Bug: Pulse Audio Volume Control
The radio knob of this launcher can be added to the panel, but when you click on it you get the following message:
"Connection failed: Connection refused"

I see the note about installing Mint 8 as a clean install and as an upgrade, Is Mint 8 stable been released yet ? I can not find where to down load it. If it is stable then it is time to install.

thanks,
Glenn

No. There will be an announcement on the forum when the stable version is released.

Could not grab your mouse

This is a well known, long standing, error that has something to do with a "failed sudo"
There are more than one post about it in the forum and it's just to search for it

I don't know if it was mentioned or possibly even a mistake on my part for some unknown reason, but gparted seemed to appear in the liveCD but disappear after installing. Had to apt-get it, which wasn't possible for me yesterday (when I found it) with no internet at the time :?

In an earlier post I made mention of a problem with Brasero having some bugs. To some extent this have been addressed but there is still some way to go.

The drawer does not 'pop open' when a burn is complete. When "Make another copy" is selected, with the previously burned CD still in the drive, the program proceeds to try to burn on this CD. Pressing the eject button on the burner, causes the drawer to open and the screen clears to the desktop image - with NO ICONS displayed now. A reboot is the only solution. I did ask how to graft a copy of Mint 7 Brasero version into Mint 8 but so far no response.

I also referred to a problem with drag and drop files into folders where the contents of the 'recipient' folder disappeared. This also has been partially fixed but now - sometimes - the 'recipient' folder won't open. The little revolving icon just sits there revolving and nothing else happens. Closing the window and re-opening it seems to partially fix problem in that the files are now shown but the icon still sits there , revolving.

I appreciate much is going on behind the scenes to sort out assorted bugs that have been uncovered and I am in no way being critical in my remarks above. I am doing this in the understanding that the bug reports are welcome - even if disheartening - and so help make the final release as bug free as possible.

I am using a Samsung R159 LapTop to observe the above problems.

Cheers,

Griz.

An hour after posting the above I managed to make my first drink coaster of the day using Mint 8 version of Brasero. This was when I was trying to make a second copy of a just completed CD burn.

Not sure why but every time I boot up despite changing the volume levels to 50% - 51% it boots up every time and is muted.

Any solution to this?

Cheers. :)

Gparted is included in the Live CD because it's necessary for installation.

It is NOT installed by default in the completed installation. It's been this way in Mint since at least Elyssa and in Ubuntu since at least Gutsy.

Interesting.... Out of curiosity I went looking for Partition Manager or Editor or Anything.... and found nothing!

I'm using Mint 8 RC1 with all the updates.

As it happens, I'm not all that bothered since I have a dedicated copy [4.6 at the moment] of Parted Magic which suits my needs perfectly.

Has got to be a bug then, related to the differences in hardware, because i too didn't have Partition editor by default in the install, it was in the live CD; i am talking about Ubuntu Intrepid and Jaunty, and Mint 7--and not been reported perhaps because it was no biggie apt-getting it.
