Re: Activinspire runs, but doesn't open audio files.

Sorry, mate! I thought this software was pretty well-known, possibly because I am new to it and had no idea about how popular it was. It seems the linux version has been developed only for 32bits machines, so you don't get a full performance on a 64bits one. I'm not sure this is all there's to the p...

Activinspire runs, but doesn't open audio files.

Hello, I've just installed Activinspire on my Linux Mint 17.1. It runs ok, but there's a problem with sound. When you click on an icon to open an audio file on a flipchart, nothing happens. Actually, the player starts, but doesn't really play the audio file. I've done some research, but didn't find ...

wi-fi extremely unstable

Hi there, l I know there are other posts about this kind of problem. I've read some of them but couldn't really help myself out of this situation. I'm running Mint 17.1, Cinnamon, 64bits. My wi-fi is really unstable. Sometimes I get a very slow connection, sometimes no connection at all, sometimes i...

Re: conexão wi-fi cai e pede senha a cada 5 minutos

Pessoal... continuo com o problema. Na verdade algo muito estranho está acontecendo. Agora a internet não funciona de jeito nenhum no meu laptop, seja no Windows, seja no Linux. Estou em outro computador, utilizando a mesma conexão, e neste laptop, funciona, embora não esteja 100%. Isso é estranho, ...

Re: Mate (and Cinnamon) crashes, system freezes, firefox cra

I've been using the computer for work, but will try to find the right time to inspect it.
At the moment, I'm a little too busy. The crashes are not happen too often.
I'll report back.
Thanks for your help!

Re: Mate (and Cinnamon) crashes, system freezes, firefox cra

I'm not currently running Debian on my computer, although sometimes I consider reinstalling it, hoping for more stability. I used it for about 4 years. I have a Windows 7 partition which I seldom use. I really don't like Windows. But, indeed, I experienced many system crashes there also, when I firs...

Re: Mate (and Cinnamon) crashes, system freezes, firefox cra

Hi there, Bad news. Mate had a bad crash today. It logged out out of the blue, and after I logged in again, the mouse cursor froze at a spot on the screen and I couldn't do much. I managed to restart the system using the keyboard, and it hasn't happened again since then. Bad news regarding browser i...

Re: Mate (and Cinnamon) crashes, system freezes, firefox cra

Do you need Firefox? There are several reasons to take Google Chrome instead, such as performance, security (sandboxing) and better Flash support. The addons are underwhelming though. No, I don't really need firefox. Actually, I've just so much used to it. I've been using it for many years. I confe...

Re: Mate (and Cinnamon) crashes, system freezes, firefox cra

You have a point.
Today FF crashed once more. I'm really tired of this.
How about security issues, when using an older version like the one you're using?
Thanks!

Re: Mate (and Cinnamon) crashes, system freezes, firefox cra

Hi, Thank you for your input. I've been away from the forum for some days. Sorry for not replying to your post immediately. After having disabled flash's hardware acceleration and firefox's smooth scrolling the browser hasn't crashed yet. Also no hard crashes for Mate or Mint after the kernel update...

Re: Mate (and Cinnamon) crashes, system freezes, firefox cra

No hard crashes yet. But they weren't happening so often as firefox's. They were happening just a few times a day (which, indeed, is enough to disturb you a good deal!) Sometimes, I spent a whole day without them. I'll report back if anything new happens. Regarding firefox, both hardware acceleratio...

Re: Mate (and Cinnamon) crashes, system freezes, firefox cra

Well, regarding firefox crashes, I regret to say it's still happening. I noticed the crash happens quite often when I'm scrolling the screen. Should I open a separate topic on this? It's happening all the time, really. In the terminal emulator the only message I get is "Segmentation Fault". And it h...
