Re: System freezing - Mint 13 Cinnamon

This seems to be more than a Mint problem. On my Dell Vostro 200 desktop, I have had the computer freezing totally (no response from mouse or keyboard) on Mint 13 (Cinnamon 32-bit & 64-bit, Mate 32-bit), Xubuntu 12.04, Vector 7 and Bridge, the last two of which are not based on Debian. I even change...

Re: PC hangs at boot after fresh KDE install

Thanks for your reply. The keyboard is totally unresponsive and even a live CD will not boot (I've tried several) - I can't select anything as pressing F2 or F12 does not do anything. I have checked keyboard connection and the power seems okay, though the PC shuts down immediately I press the power ...

PC hangs at boot after fresh KDE install

I have a Dell Vostro 200 desktop and have been happily running Mint for several years - most recently, Xfce 9. I decided to install Mint Kde 9 and all ran well after the install (which is dual booted with rarely used Windows XP). But since shutting the computer down, I have been unable to reboot. Th...

Re: Xfce 9 Isadora development(Updated July 19)

Great stuff and many thanks for all the hard work you and the testers have put in. Think I'll try the amd64 version to see if it really flies!

Re: the Portable Media Player of Choice

I have an IRiver H340 music player - it easily appears as an external hard drive when plugged into my Mint Xfce 8 system - and it supports ogg and flac. Not sure that this model is manufactured any longer but it's served me well - I was just getting into Linux when I bought it so I did check that it...

Re: digital camera software

f-spot is one program you could try - find it in the Synaptic package manager. In Synaptic, you could also do a search for "photo" (highlighting All in the left-hand column) and that will bring up some suggestions. I am not an expert on how to correct the problem you are having as it's never happene...

Re: Acer laptop shutdown problem

Thanks for your suggestion, rirtx.
Tried it without success, I'm afraid. Laptop fails to power off, though with a different message on the screen.
As I'm by no means an expert I'm going to keep a Mint 7 version on my laptop and will try again with Mint 9. :lol:

Re: Acer laptop shutdown problem

viking 777 - in the light of your reply, I''ll probably reinstall Mint 7 Gnome or Xfce on my laptop or might even be very daring and try Mint 8 KDE to see if it can win me over! I think I'll just get too annoyed having to press the power button on shutdown. It seems to be Ubuntu/Mint where this is a...

Acer laptop shutdown problem

Hi, I am running Mint 8 Main and my Acer Aspire 1681 WLMi (Intel Pentium M715, ATI Mobility Radeon 9700/64MB) will not shut down fully from the Shutdown screen. After a few seconds, it stops and there is a blank screen with the words: Linux Mint 8 Helena - Main Edition cl-laptop tty1cl-laptop login:...

Re: doesn't shut down, hangs at "acpid exiting"

I had the "acpid exiting:" problem on my Acer Aspire laptop for Mint 6 main edition and couldn't solve it despite following advice in these forums and elsewhere. The problem has, however, vanished for Mint 7 RC1 so here's hoping it doesn't come back on Mint 8 or later....I've never had the problem o...

Minimise/Maximise Buttons Vanish

Not sure if this is a bug or a problem that I'm causing by altering settings, but I am finding that from time to time (unning XFCE 6 RC1) that the bar containing the Minimise/Restore/Maximise buttons at the top of applications is not there. If I reboot, it reappears. Any ideas what might be causing ...

Re: Ideas for Felicia XFCE CE

As a slight aside, it would be great to have the Mint XFCE edition mentioned here http://www.xfce.org/download/distros on the XFCE website.

Mint menu

Mint Menu remains open after I open an application. I have to click on an area outside Mint Menu before it closes. Changing theme (as suggested in a post) does not help.
