Changing the input/output for audio?

The normal output port for audio on the front of my PC has problems, so I use the input on Windows instead and then just use the rear port for actual input.
Is there a way to do the same on Linux Mint?

Re: Account recovery?

So, since I installed my OS separately from everything else, will everything remain the same, except for the Username/Password itself, once I log in again?

Account recovery?

I seem to have misremembered either my username or password, and what I have written down isn't working. I think it's probably my username, is there a way to reset them separately, or do I need to reset both of them? If so, how do I do it? There seemed to be different instructions depending on where...

Firefox keeps starting in an odd-sized window?

For some reason, the first time I start Firefox after booting Linux Mint 14, it's off in the upper-left at a small resolution, and the only way to fox it seems to be to minimize and then restore.
Any ideas what's wrong with it?

Sound is quieter in Linux Mint than Windows?

This is probably a driver issue, or some kind of difference in the Sound software, but to get about the same level of volume in Linux Mint as I do in Windows 7, I have to put the volue quite a bit higher, 10+ increments it seems.
Is that normal?

Re: Question on how Linux Mint partitions hard drives

Ran Boot Repair. Pastebin link.

It says it fixed it, but also to make sure that the BIOS boots on the sda1/EFI/linuxmint/grubx64.efi file, how do I do that?

Re: Question on how Linux Mint partitions hard drives

$ sudo os-prober Should list windows. On first input it asked for a [sudo] password for username. I gave it the password I set for login. It seemed fine with it. On second input nothing happened, it just sends me to a new command line. Timeout may be set to zero. Change it: $ sudo pluma /etc/defaul...

Re: Question on how Linux Mint partitions hard drives

I got it installed, but when i restarted after installation it went straight to the Linux Mint login. i was under the impression that on startup I would receive the option to choose whether I log in to Windows or Linux.
Did I misunderstand, or was there something I forgot to do during install?

Re: Question on how Linux Mint partitions hard drives

Hmmm, I'm seeing differing views on this--should swap space nowadays be the same size or twice the size of the RAM? I'm a desktop user, and I like to game and have multiple programs running at once, so I'm inclined to think the double, especially when I have HD to spare. For me, double the RAM is on...

Re: Question on how Linux Mint partitions hard drives

Ran into the next issue . . .

I don't seem to be getting an option to install alongside Windows--it says it doesn't see any other OS on my hard drive, so the only available options are to wipe the entire disk or use the partition editor (which scares me).

Re: Question on how Linux Mint partitions hard drives

I went into Disk Management and used the "Shrink volume" option on the C drive. On Disk 0 I now have 100 MB devoted to the EFI System partition, C is now at 740 GB, and I have 658 GB unallocated. The PC successfully shut down and started back up, so nothing seems to have been damaged. My disk fragme...

Question on how Linux Mint partitions hard drives

I want to install Linux Mint alongside Windows 7, so (correct me if I'm wrong) I need to have a separate hard drive partition for the Linux OS. When I was installing Windows 7 on this machine, I just made its partition the entire hard drive, to date though it's only used ~360 gb of the 1.4 tb I have...
