Re: Mint 17.3 - Eve Online crashing at intervals WORK_ROUND FOUND

I spotted that when the client hung so did the launcher, but any other clients kept running. I then tried terminating the launcher as soon as the clients were up and running, since which I've done long space journeys and over 20 hours game-play without crashing. Not a fix, but a workable solution un...

Mint 17.3 - Eve Online crashing at intervals

I'm running Mint 17.3 (64-bit) with Cinnamon 2.8.8 on a 6-core AMD Phenom with a Nvidia GTX 560 video card (driver 384.130). I'm running Eve Online on WINE 3.0.3.

How to stop the system grabbing 'Alt-' key combinations

Using Linux Mint 17.3, Cinnamon 2.8.8. Is there anyway to stop the system intercepting 'Alt' key events, as I never use them in Linux anyway and they interfere with games like 'Eve' ?

I'm on Mint 17.3 and Cinnamon 2.8.8 (64-bit) on an AMD Phenom II X6 1055T Processor with an Nvidia GeForce GTX 560 video card driving dual monitors. When I applied the kernel update, I got the "Cinnamon just crashed" error, and only had 1 monitor operating. I managed (eventually) to revert to my pre...

Re: Can't download photo's from mobile phone - SOLVED !

Thanks folks, it's now working OK :D . Marcia - thanks for the instructions, but the problem was that the computer didn't detect that the phone was there in the first place, so I couldn't do any of your stuff with it. phd21 - I applied the changes you suggested. They weren't sufficient on their own ...

I'm running Mint 17.3 (32-bit on a laptop, 64-bit on a desktop) with Cinnamon. I have a Doro 6520 phone, a simple clamshell-style, on which I can take pictures. I can send the pictures by MMS to my SO's phone (Samsung Turbo7) and copy them to the PC from there, but I can't transfer the pictures dire...

Re: Anybody gotten Sketchup to work under Cinamon?

The suggested Ruby fix didn't work for me, I ended-up on SketchUp 8 - which works most of the time, but still crashes-out on occasion.

Re: Anybody gotten Sketchup to work under Cinamon?

You could try this https://community.linuxmint.com/tutorial/view/1710, it addresses the 32/64 bit issue. I haven't tried it myself yet, was going to give it a go next weekend.
