Thanks for your response. I don't want to reinstall Mint, so how do change the drive on which Grub is installed. I believe that this can be done with the app boot-repair on Ubuntu but I don't see it on Mint.

Re: Asus transformer t100

I bought an Asus T100 a couple of months ago and I love it. Best Windows tablet you can get for the money. Unfortunately, I have been a linux user for almost a decade now and this was my very first frustration about a hardware that could not easily run a Linux OS. Some have found some work arounds t...

Aspire One 150 doesn't shut down when pressing power button

Hi, I have upgraded my old Aspire One 150 from LM 10 to 16. I am very impressed with the performance and, as it is a bit more sluggish, it is still very usable. I have one problem though. I have the habit to shut down my computers by pressing the power button but this maneuver doesn't seem to work w...

Re: Cannot disable trackpad on Dell Latitude E6330

Thanks for answering. Sorry for the noob question. How do you install synclient ? If I search that term in synaptics, it brings me "xserver-xorg-input-synaptics" which is alreday installed.

Re: Cannot disable trackpad on Dell Latitude E6330

Just a reminder on that topic. I really would like to find an easy solution for disabling the touchpad on a Dell Lalltitude E6330. The FN + F5 shortcut that works in Windows doesn't work in LinuxMint 14 Main. I do see the pop up on the screen telling me that the touchpad is disabled, but it's not. T...

Cannot disable trackpad on Dell Latitude E6330

Hi, I usually disable the trackpad on laptops when I have a mouse plugged in so that I don't get the cursor jumping every now and then by accidentally hitting the trackpad with my thumb.
