Re: vboxclient the virtualbox kernel service is not running

This is the solution that worked for me: I just purged virtualbox-guest-x11 virtualbox-guest-utils virtualbox-guest-dkms and that solved the pop-up message. Do this only if you're running mint natively i.e., not in a virtual box. The command to do this is - sudo apt-get --purge autoremove virtualbo...

Re: Audio crackles and stutters every few minutes

I seem to have found a solution, in my own personal case, anyway. I recently tried to put different DEs of 17.1 on, in the hopes that recent updates may have addressed my sound problem, but to no avail, I still experienced my previously mentioned issues. Well, today, after going back to MATE 17.0, w...

Re: Audio crackles and stutters every few minutes

Okay, I've just formatted, and put Mate 17 64bit on, didn't download the lower tier updates, just the preselected number ones, and watched a 16 minute video on YouTube, no stutters or pauses. It played perfectly. Haven't installed any gaming software yet, but it's pretty obvious for me, anyway, that...

Re: Audio crackles and stutters every few minutes

I have the same problem, with games as well. I started with a clean install of Mate 17.1 64bit, videos stuttered, and games that used to run flawlessly (Icewind Dale), would run well for a time, before the sound got very 'scratchy'. I decided to try Cinnamon 17.1 64bit, videos still stutter, though ...

Re: PlayOnLinux locks up at multiplayer.

Not sure if this matters, but these are all GOG versions that I'm using.

Thanks, again!

PlayOnLinux locks up at multiplayer.

Most everything I've installed on PlayOnLinux seems to lock up when I choose multiplayer. After I shut the game down, I get a message that it's crashed. Even if I try to start a Lan game. The only game that hasn't done this is Nox. Neverwinter Nights 1, Lionheart, and a couple others lock up going i...

Re: Mint 16 iso bootable?

Turns out I was getting the 'unable to find autorun program' error. So, I rebooted from the DVD rom itself, and here I am, less than an hour later, with my shiny new OS. :D

Re: Mint 16 iso bootable?

I'm pretty sure I burned it right. I'm gonna grab another image, and try again.

Thanks so much for your time.

Mint 16 iso bootable?

Are the images of Mint 16 bootable? I burned one, and it doesn't seem to be. Forgive my newbness, but if they aren't, are bootable versions forthcoming? I'm assuming this is an early version, and a main download will be coming soon? Edit: what I mean, is a copy that I can stick in my DVD rom that wi...
