Terminal Hotkey

I just installed Mint 14 (Xfce) and want a hotkey for opening a new terminal window. ctl+alt+t does not work. I know where the keyboard->shortcut menu is following this tutorial: http://lgallardo.com/en/2009/07/18/accesos-rapidos-en-xfce-4keyboard-shortcuts-in-xfce-4/ but I don't know where the term...

Re: Install From Mounted .iso

Thank you. I gave up on doing it via USB and burnt a DVD. It boots from that and seems to begin the install process alright, but when it comes to partitioning the drive I have no idea what to do. This is the "installation type" page. I don't know anything about swap space, ext4 journaling ...

Install From Mounted .iso

I have downloaded the mint .iso on an older computer without DVD burning capabilities. Is if possible to just mount the .iso via software or terminal commands and install from the HDD? I am new to Linux. Thank you.

Re: Install Programs

My intent in messing with the files in the .iso was to install it from the harddrive. My old laptop can't burn DVDs :-(.

Re: Install Programs

Sorry, but I am having trouble installing it. I got the Nadia, 14th ed., and mounted it with mount -o loop ./mint.iso ./mnt/disk after creating the mnt and disk folders and renaming the .iso "mint". I can see the files in the .iso, but when I click on "mint4win.exe" I get Archive...

Re: Install Programs

I specifically got the Xfce version because I wanted to run it on an old centrino/512MB RAM machine. Does the link provided update the Xfce edition, or install the full version of mint?

Re: Install Programs

I did not change anything intentionally. I've only used this install for a few days. How can I check if I got the latest build? I believe I downloaded "Xfce Community Edition Verrsion: Linux Mint 8 "Helena" Xfce" from http://www.linuxmint.com/download_ce.php. Is there a newer ver...

Install Programs

I cannot install programs on my newly installed Linux mint Xfce computer. For example, I tried installing emacs from: http://community.linuxmint.com/software/view/emacs. I also tried installing emacs, and the Midori browser using aptitude with a GUI and the commend line. Neither works. I am told tha...
