Re: Compaq nx6310 Laptop Bluetooth Quesion

There are quite a few nx3610 models according to what I found here, and multiple models have integrated bluetooth:

Re: LM17 - Nexus 7 (2012) not being recognized

Where would that option be?

I am trying to mount my tablet to my computer, not a USB drive to my tablet.

I tried mounting the computer from my tablet using an app I found, and got a message on Mint saying that "LINUX MINT" was unable to be mounted. At least I got a response!

Did you try installing the drivers with the Additional Drivers module in Settings? http://support.amd.com/en-us/kb-articles/Pages/Latest-LINUX-Beta-Driver.aspx This (above) is the link to the AMD Catalyst 14.6 Beta for Linux.

LM17 - Nexus 7 (2012) not being recognized

Hello! I am having problems with Linux Mint and my 2012 Nexus 7. Upon connecting my Nexus to my computer via USB, I got no response from Mint concerning the device. I didn't even see it mounted in the file manager. I have tried using gMTP, but to no avail. Could somebody point me in the right direct...

Re: help Compaq Presario

Which desktop environment are you using - KDE, Cinnamon, XFCE, or MATE?

Are you saying you can't find a way to connect to your wireless network, or that your computer can't detect any networks?

Re: help Compaq Presario

He never stated which mint version he's using, and you didn't either. I honestly don't see your point in saying that. The STA driver hasn't worked for me on previous versions of Mint up to version 10, and since recently testing it, still doesn't work. The b43-fwcutter worked then, and is still work...

So forget all that b43-installer stuff for now. It may be the right driver, it may not. For some ridiculous reason mintwif...

Re: two finger scrolling on trackpad does not work

This is a way you could determine which desktop environment I'm using. When logging in, there should be a gear at the top right of the small password box. You should see the options Last, Run XClient script, and either KDE, GNOME, or MATE. Whichever one you see, that's the desktop you're running! I'...

Re: help Compaq Presario

And on a side note, when making a new thread, the title should be as informative as can be. "help Compaq Presario" was enough to bring me here, and although it did, you should really state what problem you're having or at least hint it. :wink:

Hmm... Did you have Synaptic Package Manager open while running this command? For it to successfully execute, there have to be no other package managers open, i.e. Mint Update Manager. Try closing any if open and run again. Also, since your Terminal states that b43-fwcutter is already installed and ...

Re: KED desktop - minimized apps dont show in task panel

Sorry if this hurts you in any way (I hope this doesn't), but it's KDE, not KED.

Hmm, maybe you accidentally deleted the task manager widget off your default panel. Try totally removing the panel and replacing it with the default one.

Hope this helps~ :)

Re: Love Linux Mint

Glad to see some Mint lovers~

I migrated to Mint from Ubuntu. Ubuntu was waaay too clunky for my system, and Unity never really suited me that much :?

I think the only Linux distro I am ever going to use now is Mint!
