Re: proper routing with two interfaces?

Thanks a lot! That did help.
Although, now I've got another problem with it - it no longer properly connects to local machines. It appears it now routes connections to local machines through the gateway for some reason. Thus, ssh and NFS on local machines no longer works :(
Any ideas?

Re:

Before anyone unintentionally gives bad advice, could you provide a network diagram? I don't think that is relevant or necessary. And my network diagram would just simply confuse people more, believe me. So I'd better not. It's not clear to me what your physical arrangement is or what you hope to a...

proper routing with two interfaces?

G'day! I recently got a secondary ISP and thus now use two network interfaces - one to access the primary ISP and one to access the secondary one. But I've got a problem - only one connection works at any given time. I investigated & tried to fix it, but I did not find a way to do that. Yet in the p...

Re: cbz & cbr (comic) thumbnailer?

I can't help you but I can say on Mint 13 I never had a problem with thumbnails for cbr or cbz. Maybe Mint 15 (MATE 1.6) changed how thumbnails are handled? That could be. Although, it worked fine with both Mate 1.4 and Mate 1.6 on Ubuntu. And I just did some digging and found out I have the thumbn...

cbz & cbr (comic) thumbnailer?

How do I get a thumbnailer for .cbz and .cbr (comic archive) files on Mint? When I ran Ubuntu 13.04 w/ MATE, it was thumbnailing those just fine. And I assume Mint, being based on Ubuntu, should be able to do this, too. (unless this feature was diked out for some reason...) I just can't find the rig...

Re: Can't drag windows fully to another monitor

I had such a problem with both nouveau and and the blob.
In all cases, it was related to changing modes / activating another monitor / changing resolutions. A simple X / DE restart helped most of the time, as long as there was no more resolution / mode changes and/or screen [re]activations.

Re: I was told not to use CLI

Let me get this straight: some of You [You know who I am talking about...] are saying it is better to leave a newbie hanging with a problem than to ["Oh God forbid!"] make the newbie learn a thing or two while helping him/her fix it via the CLI? "But think of all the children possible frustration & ...

Re: Share Internet With a Windows PC

Hey there! There is a MUCH SIMPLER way to do it. In Mate desktop, You can do it simply with the Network Manager. Just open the Network Manager, select the network interface which is connected to the Windows machine and in the IPv4 Settings tab, set the method to "Shared to other computers". And that...

Re: No User Accunt in Mint 15RC??

You probably know this, but for the benefit of somebody reading this thread who doesn't, one can create a user account via the terminal. I've only done it when I am following a guide when I was playing around with Slackware. I Google'd how to do it on on Ubuntu and Mint and a lot of guides came up ...

Re: No User Accunt in Mint 15RC??

In Cinnamon 'User Accounts' is still there as Pat in this explained to me in this thread. Under "System Settings" you have to switch to "Switch to Advanced Mode" and then "User Accounts" and appears still there under Preferences. I would assume since it is under System Settings in Cinnamon then it ...

Re: No User Accunt in Mint 15RC??

can't you just search for 'user accounts' right there in the field that comes up when you search for applications? That was the first thing i did, actually. It was not there. Suspecting that it got renamed, I also tried searching with many phrases. Like "login", "user", "users", "groups" and so on....

Re: Alt+tab not correctly working

I experienced such a thing with many games, too. It seems some games "hijack" the keyboard and the mouse for the game to work properly.
Sort of a workaround: I noticed most (albeit not all) of the games "release" the keyboard when in the game menu is open (i.e. the esc menu), allowing to Alt+Tab.

Re: No User Accunt in Mint 15RC??

Good day! I have the same problem, albeit on Mate edition. Where do I find it on Mate? Sure, I can use do it in CLI. But experience shows that might be problematic with DEs getting confused due to some unset DE-specific stuff for the newly created user. So I'd rather do it with the DE provided tools...
