Re: Networking Notworking!

I've been following this with keen interest, if not always understanding. However, my own aim, and I'm sure many others, was to install Linux, use it on an everyday basis (with the GUI) and get to grips with the command line stuff as I go along. And the fact that basic network uses aren't available ...

Re: Networking Notworking!

"Unable to mount location Failed to retrieve share list from server" Me too. Exactly the same. I haven't tried all those things, I wouldn't know how, but then we shouldn't have to. I just don't understand why there isn't the equivalent of what I can do with WIndows. I use simple shares, I ...

Re: CODE: SELECT ALL

Putting my initial comment in a more serious frame; When various forum answers start by telling us Newbies to use the Code:select All instruction it isn't as simple as " press any key" for a number of reasons. First. It starts with that word "Code" . Which is not in the slightest...

Re: CODE: SELECT ALL

I may be wrong ( so flame me, I'm not a kid ) but sometimes even the most helpful of comments do seem to have a flavour of "This is how we do things" rather than "This is what you NEED to do".

Networking

How do I go about making my Mint machine ( or directories on it ) visible to other computers (running Windows 7 ) on my home network? And vice versa, how can I make the shared folders on my networked machines appear on my Mint machine? A network watching programme on my Windows machine can see Mint ...

Re: Vanishing windows

Thank you,
I now have a screen that doesn't vanish each time I move my mouse a bit too far to the right.
What a relief.
I can actually do stuff.

Vanishing windows

I'm sure there is already an answer for this posted somewhere, if I could only frame the search question right.* When I get too close to the right of my screen the current window vanishes off to the left. I have to move the cursor to the left and click to make it reappear. As I mentioned, I'm sure t...

Re: user or superuser

Gottit, I understand. I tried what you said and all became clear.
it's the same as in the gui, it takes the p/w to give top level control within the admin user's account.
Not like Windows which has a fixed level of control for each login.
Thanks :)

user or superuser

I have not set up any accounts other than the original. The command line prompt is a $ When I look at Linuxcommand.org it says that this $ is a user prompt and the # is the admin/superuser. I don't understand this. This account seems to have all the admin privilages. And there is no other. Or does M...

HTC Sync

I have an HTC phone. HTC sent me a link that was supposed to give me a version of htc SYNC Manager for Linux. It lead to a message saying that now they only support Windows and Mac, instead. :evil: Is there a way to get an equivalent? I tried a search through Linux' software manager, but could find ...

Re: login needed

Thanks, that makes a lot of sense. This time round it was simpler to reinstall. I did work out that my username was actually staring me in the face, from the part of the log-in prompt. But at this stage there was no point trying to get it all working. It was too early in the proccess to bother with ...

login needed

After I installed Mint I rebooted my machine several times with it coming back perfectly to the Cinnamon desktop each time. Which was the option I'd chosen at install. Then there was an update, and I removed a few programmes that I'm never going to use (nothing system related) and I changed the desk...
