Re: connected but no internet

nevermind. I ran sudo /usr/lib/linuxmint/mintWifi/mintWifi.py as indicated in http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=53&t=1085 and it works now. Not sure what the script does.

connected but no internet

I am running a desktop with dual boot with W8 and Mint 17.1. I am experiencing a problem with my networking. It was working fine, but since a few days (I can't remember updating anything special) I can't connect to the internet. It doesn't matter if I use my wifi adapter, cable or usb tethering via ...

Re: can't change any settings in cinnamon

it had to do with this: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+sour ... bug/757866

in an attempt to fix it, I broke it entirely and was forced to reinstall. Luckily I had a separate /home partition so most settings were stored.

Re: terminal transparency

thanks for your reply. I also thought it might be the themes, but it's with every theme, also the standard ones. At work I have a Gigabyte GTX780 installed with proprietary nividia-331 drivers. (doesn't work as expected) At home I have an Asus GTX770 installed, with the same nvidia-331 drivers. (wor...

pseudo-transparent terminal

Hi all, both at my work and home I run linux mint 17 cinnamon edition. At both PCs, my terminal window is set to semi-transparent, so that I can see the background window. At home this works as expected. However, at work, I have a pseudo-transparent terminal window which only shows the background wa...

Re: SOLVED- Mint 16 - no HDMI Output sound (Acer Aspire 6930

I also didn't have sound via HDMI (headphones connected to monitor). After installing pavucontrol I had to change the profile in the configuration tab from "Digital Stereo (HDMI) Output (unplugged)" to "Digital Stereo (HDMI) Output". I didn't need to install anything else. Maybe ...

Re: Mint 17 Cinnamon with GTX780?

I managed to solve it after a clean install of Mint 17, and started the command "startx" in the text terminal after booting with the nomodeset and xforcevesa boot parameters. Then the graphical interface in low res started and I was able to install and apply the proprietary nvidia drivers ...

Mint 17 Cinnamon with GTX780?

Hi all, I try to install Mint 17 Cinnamon edition on my HP workstation with an NVIDIA GTX780 graphics card. The live USB runs fine. I noted a message regarding lack of hardware acceleration. I assumed when I install the proprietary nvidia drivers this should run fine. After installation of Mint 17 h...

Re: It must be late...

What are the contents of the folder you are in? Does it include a file named configure? Probably not because the error message says it can't find it..

Re: pop up message: can't run epiphany

Epiphany is a web browser for gnome, see also http://projects.gnome.org/epiphany/ Epiphany is trying to autostart directly after boot, but can't, since, assumingly, you don't have it installed - hence the error message. I guess you should check your list of startup applications (or run -> 'mate-sess...

I started using Linux (ubuntu) in 2010 when I bought a netbook because I moved away and had to travel a lot to work with the train. The netbook (samsung N210) was preinstalled with Windows 7 Starter's edition which was really a pa...
