Re: Chromium opening pdf in Gimp when system default is Docu

I too had this happen. This is what cured it for me.(I`m no expert mind you.) Right click a PDF file >properties >4th tab `open with` that gave me two options >document viewer and >gimp I selected `document viewer` and removed the `gimp` option. If it works for you too, I claim no credit, I read it...

Re: Chromium opening pdf in Gimp when system default is Docu

Thanks but it has no option to change. There is an option in the menu to clear auto-open options but it's grayed out and unavailable.

Chromium opening pdf in Gimp when system default is Document

Hi all, First, I'm running Mint 13 with Mate. When I first set it up, Chromium would open .pdf files in Document Viewer but somewhere along the line I used Gimp to open one and it ended up as default somehow. I changed the system wide default back to Document Viewer and when I double click in a fold...

Nvidia Twinview GDM on wrong monitor

Hello everyone. This seems like it should be simple but I can't get it to work. I am running Mint 11 with and Nvidia 3d card. I have the VGA output from card going to my main monitor.

Re: (Solved) AMD Phenom 9850 Quad Core clock speeds

It's best to leave it on if possible. It'll save power, and in doing so reduce waste heat which is always bad for your pc. Enable it, and your cores should throttle back. Then type yes > /dev/null into a terminal and one of your cores should shoot up to full speed. If this all works out ok then you...

Re: AMD Phenom 9850 Quad Core clock speeds

This is probably about AMD Cool and Quiet, check in Bios if you have AMD Cool & Quiet enabled, if that is enabled it automatically adjusted your CPU frequency (among other ways to save power) based on how much its used, alternately you can dissable it if its inconvenient. Yep that was it. It ha...

Re: AMD Phenom 9850 Quad Core clock speeds

I realize that this post is getting old but, after installing Mint 11 RC, that all 4 processors are now reporting 1250Mhz when they should be 2500. Anyone have any updates on this?

Re: AMD Phenom 9850 Quad Core clock speeds

ok now pushing all 4 processors to around 90+% each and system is actually lagging and it reports the same. Processor 0 1250, Processor 1 2500, Processor 2 1250, Processor 2500.

Re: AMD Phenom 9850 Quad Core clock speeds

Possible. I was assuming that /proc/cpuinfo was written at boot but, it appears by looking at file timestamps that I was wrong I will check it out. I would think that it would throttle all 4 back equally. I will check it out. I've found that if I activate enough compiz plugins I can seriously get it...

Hello and thanks in advance for help. I recently built a new system with a Phenom 9850 processor. I'm running a fully up to date install of Mint 9 64bit. I recently noticed that while all of the odd numbered cores are reporting clock speed of 2500 (correct), the even or reporting 1250. Output of my ...

possible bug in Mozilla based design

I'm not sure how long that old flash plugin had been in my home directory or even which flavor of Linux that I've used that home directory on over the last several years actually put it there. I can understand the logic of putting plugins in your home directory that override the main plugin in the /...

ok, I just totally deleted the plugins folder from my home directory and now firefox works. I'm not sure where that came from. I've been dragging around the same home directory since Fedora 7ish like 4 years ago. Never been an issue til now.

Fixed:Fresh install Mint 9 no Flash in any browser

Hello all! A couple of days ago I tried to do a live upgrade on system running Mint 8. It trashed some things and I didn't feel like tracking the issues down so did a clean install of 9. Since the install, I can't seem to get flash working in any browser. In Firefox, Youtube advises me that the flas...

Sorry, I hadn't checked in for a while. It was installed, I believe, via apt-get. I have a partition dedicated to music mounted at /mnt/music which I even changed to 777 permissions thinking that permissions might be the problem. It is set as me being the owner, users being the group. Everyone in my...

That's the best way I know to describe it. It seems that every so often when I have added new music to my music folder, after Amarok gets done scanning the collection, most of the titles and artists end up associated with the wrong file. ie: What the collection says is a Kansas song is actually a Jo...
