This means that you were waiting for RC to be released so you could download it... which is why the previous poster answered your post the way he did...

RC. No thanks.

I will wait until the official launch.

That's what I thought you 'meant'... but re-read your previous post.. (it was conflicting/confusing ;^))

Re: Switch off HDMI audio, use sound card

Just found your post.. You need to go into your systems BIOS and change (disable) it from there. To get to your BIOS, you need to hit a certain key when you are booting (it should give you a few seconds to see what you need to hit during post). Usually it is your DEL key (on desktops)..(my laptop, I...

Re: Petra KDE Can't mount Encrypted Internal HD

Been several months since I posted this... and STILL have the same problem (with no replies here)... Come on, someone must know how I can get my HHD working again (It is still in my PC, still showing unallocated). Also, it is NOT a boot HDD, just Data (and I still know the password, if I can get the...

Re: Fan issue / overheating with Toshiba Satellite

The first thing I think of when I see "Toshiba Satellite" is overheating :p The last Satellite I had, had a rough time gathering dust bunnies and would get so hot that it would shut down anywhere from 30 seconds to 2 minutes, until I would break it down and clean it out (especially the fan). I had t...

Petra KDE Can't mount Encrypted Internal HD

I have been using Mint KDE since Mint 11. I had an internal HD that was encrypted with my Linux games, movies, music and my work projects on there that when I installed (LiveCD) MKDE14, through a couple of searches here and ixquick (search engine), I was able to access the HD like normal again. MKDE...

Re: Clementine downloads in Spanish? Why?

Same here (comes up in Japanese)..

You have to maneuver in the options drop down to select the language (on Clementine).

Re: Linux Mint 15 "Olivia" released!

Right now, I'm using Linux Mint 15 KDE RC from a Live DVD. That I can tell you, is really beautiful .... It works wonderfully well on my machine. It takes a lot, but I really wish it was worth it (hurts the little time support) .... The RC is almost perfect ..... Congratulations Linux Mint Team and...

Re: Automounting of external drives

When I used KDE, up to v3.5, I loved Konqueror. Didn't like KDE 4 though, and Dolphin seemed like a dumbed-down Konqueror, so I moved to Gnome. I got used to Nautilis, now Nemo/Caja in Mint. In Caja, I do have a context menu item "Open as administrator". Is that what you are referring to? Yup, that...

Re: Mint KDE 15

Mate and Cinnamon are very good. But, in my modest opinion, there is no doubt that KDE is the best desktop today. Well, we continue to expect for Linux Mint 15 KDE. The Versions of Linux Mint with KDE Desktop are all excellent (except for Linux Mint 12 KDE). Worth waiting ............ I didn't even...

Re: Switch to mint 15

I recommend (HIGHLY) you do a fresh install... may take several minutes, or hours to get the apps you had before... but will be much more stable, faster and less bugs ;)

Re: Automounting of external drives

I find it annoying that external drives are automounted and a file manager opened for each one on boot. I finally solved the later problem by changing the value: apps->caja->preferences->media_automount_open using the mateconf-editor. How can I contol whether external drives are automounted or not?...

Re: mint install on SSD hardrive - unknown file system for r

well I tried the hard drive in another laptop and mint gave the exact same problems. I then tried a firmware update from OCZ and this did not even find the SSD hard drive. By now I am starting to think the device is defective even though its brand new. I then tried to install windows and it does no...

Re: Mint KDE 15

Linux Mint 15 KDE is doing really desire too much .... Not even ready the RC yet. A pity that you continue to give such little importance to KDE desktop when is the best out there at the moment. One must understand that the Linux Mint team gives more importance to Cinnamon and Mate. A shame !!!! Gr...
