Re: Installing with no-cd or USB boot

USB not supported in bios. On the post screen there is an IDE 1 failure where the CD should be. Tried a different CD drive and the same error. I would say toss it and get another but I sort of like the challenge. I've never done a LAN install before, could be interesting.

Installing with no-cd or USB boot

I was given an old laptop and asked to install Mint if possible. The cd drive will not function and it will not boot to USB. Will boot to LAN so I was initially thinking of that. Another thought though is to take out the hard drive and put it in my desktop as slave. Create two partitions and use une...

Re: Desktop folder shortcuts

I found a simple way to do this, thought I'd share in case anyone else wants to. Open a terminal on the desktop, I did by right clicking the desktop and open in terminal. Then type ln -s /media/n_spect_r/STORAGE/files (folder address). Now there is a shortcut to the files folder. I just have to be s...

Desktop folder shortcuts

I have installed Mint Mate 15. I have a storage partition on my drive with folders that I regularly access. I'd like to place shortcuts or symbolic links from these folders to the desktop. If I right click and choose make link, I get an error. I realize that the partition would need to be mounted fi...

Re: Getting 1024x768 working on Asus 1005-HA

Thank you so much, this actually looks better than the Jupiter display. There is an issue though, if I go back to 1224x600 I have to pan the screen off the sides.

Re: Getting 1024x768 working on Asus 1005-HA

I have the same problem. Tried settings with Jupiter and I can not get to the bottom of the screen. Same thing with xrandr, using these lines from terminal re-sizes the screen but again the mouse will not move to the bottom. xrandr --output LVDS1 --mode "1024x600" --scale "1x1" xrandr --output LVDS1...
