It took me a while before I figured most of this stuff out at least you had the right idea. I would say "Don't hesitate to ask for help" but you should search first but I personally don't mind answering the same questions over and over. There is always something to be learned. And now that you have discovered this trick next time you are browsing the forums and see someone with the same problem you can help them. That's the fastest way to learn for me is to help/teach. I just now learned about the sgfxi which is awesome. I think even better than jockey
Ah! Just added the "Solved" to the first post. Tanks for the pointer there, too!
All I know is that the sgfxi was VERY easy to install and use. It went like clockwork. Granted, I don't really understand anything it actually did, but the end result is that it is working now.
Now that I have the immediate problem solved, I can start just browsing the messages here to see what else I can break.
Seriously, I appreciate all the info, and I love Linux Mint. Coming from a guy who started on an Atari 400, went to CP/M, then DOS, then Windows 3, 95, NT, 98, 2000, XP, and Vista, that's a heck of a change. And no, I don't remember much about CP/M, but some of the Linux command structure at least looks familiar.
Oh, and don't talk to me about the "Good Old Days"...they weren't all that good!
