Howto use Jack and PulseAudio at the same time

I wanted to have Jackd and PulseAudio working together, to be able to play youtube (through pulseaudio), vlc, renoise + midi keyboard, and effects, all at the same time. Here is how I did it on a fresh installed linux-mint-qiana: Install with software manager: jackd , when asked about realtime, dont...

Re: No panel after installation on previously used HD?

Indeed, creating a new account and logging in to that account made the problem go away. Removing the 'nvidia' config folder on the old account did not work though, so it probably is something different that is polluting the install, but removing them all did the trick. I had to re-setup the panel, d...

[Solved] No panel after installation on previously used HD?

I have installed mint qiana xfce on a new system, but the panel seems to be missing. Also: when pressing the button between ctrl and alt, no menu panel pops up. The harddrive used was previously installed in a different system with a different video-card. The harddrive is 40 gb root (formatted durin...

Re: Firefox keeps asking if I want to save tabs or not ..?

Ah ok, I fixed it now.
Sorry for the doublepost.
It is an annoying bug hitting all fresh installs.
Hope the firefox lads will repair it soon.

[Solved] Firefox keeps asking if I want to save tabs or not

When I close Firefox with some tabs open, I always get the question: 'Do you want Firefox to save your tabs for the next time it starts?' It has a checkbox 'do not ask next time': checkboxdoesnotwork.png But when I tick it, then select 'quit', it does not work: I am asked again next time. No matter ...

Set automute to 'disabled' in alsamixer: no effect, still no sound.

[Solved] IEC958 (spdif) shows to be playing, but no sound

Hi! I used to have mint 16, and got spdif/iec958 working somehow. Now, I installed 17, and in pavucontrol I can see the built in audio soundcard and select it and such. When I play some music, I can see the equalizer move accordingly, but no sound comes out. pavucontrol.png Sound does come out of th...

Be user friendly: Just Use One Iso.

I am not going to walk around with 12+ dvds in my pocket just to accommodate for 3 simple choices a fresh mint user can choose from: 1) 64 bit or not 2) codecs or not 3) cinnamon, mate, kde, or xfce Thats insane! Just use one iso?! Perhaps: Check at one of the first steps of the install procedure if...

Re: xfce: Take screenshot without user interface immediately

This overcomes the 'one screenshot per seconds' limitation, it still uses a datetime based naming, but it also includes milliseconds. Thus enabling thousand screenshots per second :D

Code: Select all

#!/bin/bash
date_time_ms=$(date +%F_%T:%3N)
cp "$1" /home/YOURNAME/Pictures/Screenshot_$date_time_ms.png
rm "$1"

Re: xfce: Take screenshot without user interface immediately

Grizzler. yes, your solution seems best: keyboard shortcut Print: xfce4-screenshooter -wo scrshot Also works correctly with f(ullscreen) in stead of w(indow) option, btw. It fills the 'no screen area' with garbled data, but who cares . Sudo gedit a file in /usr/bin named scrshot #!/bin/bash mv -t "/...

Re: xfce: Take screenshot without user interface immediately

I think the reason xfce4-screenshooter -f -c did not work is because I have two screens with different sizes, together as one desktop, both on one X-screen :0.0 (so setting the --display option did not help). The interface handles this somewhat correctly. I can see both screens on one large rectangl...

Re: xfce: Take screenshot without user interface immediately

xfce4-screenshooter -f -s /path/to/save Is a working workaround: The screenshot is taken immediately (it just lingers to save it) Still, it is not the perfect solution, since pressing 'save' on the interface still takes some time and the interface will obscure part of the game during that period......

xfce: Take screenshot without user interface immediately?

When I press 'printscreen', I get a popup user interface. I can set a delay starting from one second. This is not what I want: I want the screenshot to be made AT ONCE, and saved to clipboard or ~/Pictures/ without any further user interface. I figured out the correct place to set the command-line (...
