Re: Mint sees both monitors, but only one turns on

no it needs the space in between. inxi can show various parameters of your system configuration. The switch -G show your graphics card, drivers, and various other grapohics related informations. inxi -n for example yields info on your network card and so on. For a full list you have to use the -h sw...

Re: Mint sees both monitors, but only one turns on

hmm strange. I faced the same problem like you did when I installed Mint 14. I solved it by replacing the installed open source driver with the "nvidia-current" package from dynaptic package manager. I then rebootet the system and both monitors showed nicely. You say that you have tried all those dr...

Re: Cant see Other PCs on network

One hint here. A physical connect (ping) doesn't warrent connectivity to domain ressources, those are two completely different issues. You have two ways to getting it work: 1. Get the domain to accept the Linux Client. Unfortunately my knowledge there is very limited and you would have to rely on so...

Re: Wired Connection Not Working

Two questions:

1. Do you connect directly to a modem, or is a router in between?

2. Could you run "ifconfig" in a terminal and post the results here?

Re: Microsoft Ads in Mint forums ;-)

Easy answer. The ads are served through google adsense. And since this forum falls into the category IT/Computers we see Microsoft ads as well. Googles algorythms are smart (sometimes), but that doesn't always help and create some good laughs ;)

Re: Cant see Other PCs on network

I am not entirely sure (my last days of client/server support are some years away already), but if I remember correctly starting with the 2K or 2K3 version of active directory Microsoft did not allow outsiders to connect to a domain ressource. In that case you have to make the Linux notebook a membe...

Re: Connection Problems

The invoice will be with you shortly ;) Usually vmware uses local only as the default operational mode, to keep the guest OS from accidently talking with the rest of the world. I don know how often I have forgotten that. Could you edit your first post and add a [solved] to the threadtitle? Cheers XL

Re: Connection Problems

Ok have you checked those vm parameters I wrote about earlier? Is the guest OS allowed to leave the virtual surrounding? What wonders me is that you only seem to have a v6 address ... is that correct? Do you work in a v6 only environment? Additionally I see that you adapter is only sending data but ...

Re: Connection Problems

Run a terminal and enter ifconfig. Please share the output in this thread, so I can see the status of your network card. Some questions: - What kind of connection do you use? (Wired or Wireless) - Do you directly connect to a modem, or is a router in between? One thing came to my mind ... is your vm...

Re: [mostly solved] Finding a replacement for my Audio Playe

Well apart from playing the formats right (it was the only one supporting subtunes), the playlisthandling is nice. In the gtk mode you have the playlists as tabs, which is ok, but going to be confusing when you have a lot of them. The winamp variant always display only one of them and show which one...

Re: [mostly solved] Finding a replacement for my Audio Playe

Ok, after some testing I have settled with Audacious, since it does most of the stuff I need. I run in the classical Winamp skin which I like more then the gtk variant, when I have to handle a bunch of playlists. It runs sid and sap including subtunes but not sndh (mod yet untested). I guess that I ...

If you need one in german (deducting that from your name that there is a chance for that) you could try this one: http://www.selflinux.org/

Re: Surfing on my network?

If you have a router that has a mac address filter you can only allow certain mac addresses that are allowed to access the LAN. That way you can prohibit strangers from using your lan in a simple way. If your router not only blocks access from unauthorized macs but protocols the tries to gain access...

Re: Internet light turning ret on router when downloading

Hmmm. I had a similar problem with my line some time ago, but it turned out to be a provider issue. I called Vodafone and they fixed it. It seems that an access port went nuts and a reset worked a charm.

One thing came to my mind which I haveń't thought earlier. You could try nmap. Give it a spin. It can probably deliver what you are looking for. Its quite cumbersome to handle it from the console, but should yield the results you are looking for. Understanding Wireshark and putting it to proper use ...
