Re: libmtp error accessing music android galaxy s7

Thanks Clix Trix. :) The bug you reference seems to match the issue I am having. Since ubuntu/mint has not provided an updated libmtp, should I be looking to obtain a newer version from a PPA somewhere?

libmtp error accessing music android galaxy s7

For some time now, I've been unable to add music to my android phone from Linux. This used to work easily from the file manager. I've been working around this using windows, but I'd much rather do this from linux mint :) What is happening: I plug in my galaxy s7 phone to the computer via USB, select...

Re: inspiron 3847 unresponsive mouse at login screen

Good news! After running the system for a couple of days, with multiple reboots in and out of linux, I have not experienced any problems - old or new :D
Thanks again for the help, gogolink!

Re: inspiron 3847 unresponsive mouse at login screen

gogolink, I think your fix may have done the trick. I just installed kernel 3.16.0-29 and the first boot was successful, with no freeze! (typically it was taking 3 tries to get in) I'll keep testing for another day or two and let you know if any issues crop up, but I'm optimistic. Thanks for the help!

inspiron 3847 unresponsive mouse at login screen

I'm running LM17.1 Cinnamon 64 bit on a Dell Inspiron 3847 (Core i5, 12GB RAM). Starting with LM17, I have had a serious issue logging in to the system. About 2/3 of the time, the mouse/keyboard powers down just as I reach the login screen. I have no choice but to power down and try again. I can boo...

Re: LM 17 / 17.1 intermittent sound in left channel

I suspected the wires/jacks in the beginning, but after conducting various tests, I am convinced they are ok. I listened to music for a couple of hours this morning with no problems on Win7 using the same setup. Then I moved the audio plug to an ipod and listened flawlessly for another 30 minutes. F...

Re: LM 17 / 17.1 intermittent sound in left channel

In my limited testing, it seems the issue occurs with LM17/17.1 and Ubuntu studio 14.04, but not on LM16. It seems like the problem is exacerbated by high volume (>70%) in the sound settings, if that makes any sense. Any idea what is going on here?

Re: LM 17 / 17.1 intermittent sound in left channel

Hello, and thanks for the suggestions! Yes, it is a dual boot system with Win 7 still available, and the sound works fine on the windows side. The speakers also work fine when connected to an external ipod (using the same cabling), so I'm pretty sure we are OK on that end. When I first boot into LM1...

Re: Anyone have experience with Mint on Dell XPS 8700?

Thanks to all who commented. I ended up steering away from the XPS 8700, and purchased a cheaper Inspiron 3847 Core i5 from Costco. There are a few issues with LM17, but that is a topic for another thread. Thanks again!

LM 17 / 17.1 intermittent sound in left channel

I wonder if anyone can help me. Starting in LM17 I notice that frequently there is no sound coming from the left speaker. Upgrading to LM17.1 did not help. I have a Dell Inspiron 3847 w/ integrated sound card- lshw shows product: 8 Series/C220 Series Chipset High Definition Audio Control. I am not u...

Re: Mouse and Keyboard Unresponsive

I have an inspiron 3847 also, with similar problems. I dual boot LM17 (not 17.1) with Win7. I have no mouse problems on the windows side, but about 50% of the time the mouse will power off just as I get to the Mint login screen. Very frustrating. I have also found the HDMI port to be unreliable. Per...

Anyone have experience with Mint on Dell XPS 8700?

I've been using Mint for a couple of years on older hardware and I love it! I'm new to the forums so thought I'd start here. I'm considering purchasing a new Dell XPS 8700 and wondered whether anyone has experience running Mint on this machine. BTW, I tried searching the forums for "dell xps 8700", ...
