I am new to newish to Linux and am loving mint! but i have a few questions and problems that i cannot seem to solve with online help.
I am running Linux Mint 5.0 "Elyssa" on a computer with the following specifications:
Intel Q6600 @ 2.4 per core
ASUS P5N-E SLI (using onboard sound)
Nvidia Geforce 8800GTX 768mb (Dual 22" screens)
4GB DDR2 800mhz RAM
(Anymore details needed, let me know.)
First of all i am sorry if i have posted this in the wrong place.
As i have been working under windows for years i would like to get a virtual machine running windows vista, this i have done using Virtual Box which i like a lot, but i am having some problems.
1) I cannot get the virtual Vista machine to connect to the internet or even network, i followed these instructions: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php? ... ight=canon but all that did was stop me from accessing the internet from Mint.
2) I cannot seem to get the machine to pick up any USB devices (Apart from mouse and keyboard), i followed these instructions: viewtopic.php?f=90&t=12893 but again this did not help
3) I would like to get my 6.1 surround sound fully functional, at the moment only my front speakers are working and i cannot work out how to setup the sound devices to run different speaker sets.
4) I have installed the nvidia drivers for my 8800GTX using EnvyNG and have the full compiz setup working fine, which i must say is awsome! what i want to know as i am using dual screen, what is the difference between TwinView (The one i am using now) and Seperate X screen (cannot seem to get this to work), will the enable me to set up the individual monitors separately like in windows? and how would this effect the way the cube desktop works?
Any help would be highly appreciated! And thanks all in advance!
