Re: Keyboard volume buttons not working in Gloria.

As indicated, I'm able to, on a user-by-user level, establish the amixer commands (using PCM, not Master). The question has now migrated to -- how do we set this once for the entire system, instead of on a user-by-user level? The Settings -> Keyboard -> Application Shortcuts method is specific to th...

Re: Keyboard volume buttons not working in Gloria.

Figured out how to get these set for one user, after actually reading the amixer man page. Once again, simply reading the documentation comes in useful. For the sake of others, here's what I did: Go to a terminal and type 'amixer scontrols'. This will list the simple controls available to you. Eithe...

Re: Keyboard volume buttons not working in Gloria.

I found the application shortcuts (control center -- isn't that a gnome thing? I thought this was the XFCE forum), and tried to modify those. Not having much luck.

Keyboard volume buttons not working in Gloria.

OK -- I've messed with my system some, and I'm trying to get it back to "normal" without doing a complete reload. Primarily, I'd be interested in knowing if there's some software package that could be reinstalled to convince my keyboard volume +/-/mute buttons to work again. I remember them working ...

Re: making linux mint felicia most secure

I use "firestarter" for my firewall. Whatever you use for a firewall, you'll want to verify that its doing what it should be doing. There are a number of tests that you can run here: https://www.grc.com/x/ne.dll?bh0bkyd2 The site is called "Shields Up!" and it helps to analyze any potential way that...

Re: Intricacies of Linux Mint

Answer for 1b) & 2) -- Looks like xfcemint-desktop is actually replaced by mint-meta-xfce. I missed that part. So, for Intrepid / Felicia, xfcemint-desktop should actually be removed.

Intricacies of Linux Mint

I'm a newbie to Linux Mint, not Linux. Been using Ubuntu for several years, and Debian for years before that. I like to keep a fairly orderly package list. I have some packages installed that show up as "local or obsolete", but typically, I intended to install those. I also abhor needing to keep ins...
