Re: Mounting FAT32 USB Stick SOLVED.

I just re-installed Mint18.1.
I think my original problem was self inflicted. I was pressing and holding down the power button when computer took too long to close.

Mounting FAT32 USB Stick.

My copy of Mint 18.1 has now decided not to mount Fat32 format USB Sticks correctly. NTFS etc is OK.
I seem to recall a process called "Broken" which searches out corrupted files and fixes them. Does such a thing exist for this release?
Any help will be most welcome.
Cheers,
G.

How do I copy pictures from an iPad [recent model] to Mint?

Thanks for reading this. I want to copy lots of pictures from an iPad to Mint [18.2] and am getting a message saying "no files to copy" or similar even though permission has been granted on the iPad. Also have "Trusted Computer" ticked.
Thanks for any clues.

Re: Installing PIA VPN in Mint 17.1, 17.2 and 17.3 [sort of].

There is a typo at the bottom of the above article... it says "Click on the red icon in the toolbar, a red icon will appear to the right in the toolbar." It should read "Click on the GREEN icon in the toolbar, a red icon will appear to the right in the toolbar." Sorry. The review feature doesn't wor...

Installing PIA VPN in Mint 17.1, 17.2 and 17.3 [sort of].

I have found a relatively straight forward method to install the PIA VPN software in Mint 17.1, 17.2 and 17.3 [after a fashion]. First download this file... https://www.privateinternetaccess.com/installer/download_installer_linux Now unpack it. Right click on the file "installer_linux.sh" Select pro...

Hi All, I have finally got the PIA VPN working albeit not quite as before with older versions of Mint thanks to the PIA help department.

Re: Anyone able to install the PIA [VPN] software in Mint 1

Thank you both for your response and your help, The fact that 'nano' isn't installed sure made a difference. Earlier I tried a script from the PIA site which sort of worked after a fashion. https://www.privateinternetaccess.com/forum/discussion/1940/pia-vpn-app-linux-beta/p1 I was able to load somet...

Re: Installing PIA VPN in Mint 17.2 - anyone managed it?

Hi Gordon,

Thank you very much for your post. The link solved my problem completely. I had to re-install 17.2 owing to the trail of wreckage from my earlier attempts and after that the program installed easily. Again, thank you for your trouble.

Installing PIA VPN in Mint 17.2 - anyone managed it? SOLVED>

Hi, I have been running the Private Internet Access version of VPN system in my Mint 17.1 quite happily for many months but for some reason my new Mint 17.2 [on another hard drive] produces an error message when I try to edit the network connections. Apparently it needs "org.freedesktop.networkmanag...

Re: Firefox jumps to previous web page...

Hi All, It would seem that the problem only occurs when I'm using a VPN! Probably nothing to do with FireFox at all. I've decided not to worry about the problem for the moment and just use a different browser if it becomes too much of a pest. I wil however implement a new .mozilla file when the prob...

Re: Firefox jumps to previous web page...

Hi All,
I have not done anything today as Firefox has been operating normally so I would have no idea if the 'fix' is working.
The next time it goes troppo I'll be ready and report back. Thanks again for your help.
Cheers,

Thanks to Cosma and DeMus for your replies. I will do as you suggest Cosmo in a few hours time and report back. I have been transferring the .Mozilla file each time I have upgraded in order to preserve my passwords, favourites etc so this could very well be my problem. I'll report back in a few hour...

Firefox jumps to previous web page...

Hi All, My firefox often jumps back to the last visited web page without warning! Also, when downloading a file sometimes, several minutes into the download a window will appear asking to download the same file as though it hadn't already started. Cancelling the download window only postpones the re...

Re: Showfoto closes when editing.

Ah Ha!!! Had a snoop and came across this gem for the Terminal.. "sudo apt-get install kdelibs-bin kdelibs5-data kdelibs5-plugins" and the suggestion to install the oxygen themes as you too had advised. The Synaptic Package Manager provided the installation link for this so I used it too. End result...

Hmmm, yes, must have glossed over those pearls of wisdom... :oops: Next question... Is there an easy way to overcome this - list of files/terminal instructions etc? Never had this problem in previous installations so someone must have "fixed" an already perfectly working system. Sorry to ask but I'm...
