Re: VLC Audio Volume Too Quiet

Holy necromancy, Batman! You resurrected a thread that had been buried dead for almost eight years. Much time has passed and many have changed since my previous post. For one, I've been tracking Debian Testing the last five years or so, thus I haven't used Mint in a very long time now. Thanks for yo...

Re: Building a mint machine for a repair shop

ClamAV can detect and remove a number of malware, but I don't think it can fix broken registry entries/database caused by malware, at least not from Linux. AVG, Avast! and Panda also have Linux version. I have no intensive experience with any of them (last time I dealt with Windows virus infection w...

Re: Some web pages garbled in Mint 9

It can be caused by a bug in your web browser (Firefox?) or its add-ons, graphics driver, Xorg, Compiz and even your monitor and graphic card connectors. I had similar problem way back in Mint 6 for a very short while, but it then went away all by itself. So I never even had a chance to troubleshoot...

Re: Swap partition uuid changed. What files to edit?

There are several ways to see that:

1. In System Monitor's Resources tab. See if the swap size there reflects the new size.
2. In terminal, enter sudo swapon -s. See if the numbers are correct.
3. In terminal, enter free -m.

Post the output of each command here if you're unsure.

Yes, you can install software from Debian 5 DVD, but you'll probably get undesirable outcomes by doing so. ;)

Even Ubuntu isn't compatible with Debian packages anymore.

The title has got a [SOLVED] tag but I don't see anything in any of your posts that indicates a solution. :?:

I guess you simply had to add sudo preceding make install?

Re: Attempting to install Rosengarden

First, be sure to 'cd' to the directory where bootstrap.sh is located, then run the rest of the commands. Secondly, try to search for binary packages before deciding to dive down to compiling from source; Google, Ubuntu PPA and getdeb.net are some good place to start your search. There's a Rosegarde...

Re: A nice reward for useful replies

I'm not against the idea of adding some sort of rep gauge and button or whatnot. That said, I personally think a 'Solved' button that allows users to intuitively mark their question solved will be much more useful than a rep gauge or anything else along the same line. To me, saying thank you is opti...

I managed to fix the problem by commenting out (adding a '#" sign to the beginning of) a line that reads:

in /etc/init.d/alsa-utils. Enter the following command in terminal to edit the file:

Good site, good products on offer. Good job overall.

He doesn't need, nor want, anything else.
