Repos for Linux Mint 5 Elyssa

Hi there, The subject may seem like a joke, but I've just installed Linux Mint 5 Elyssa x64 on an vintage Asus F5RL lappie. Why, would you ask? That's the last Mint release that would allow me to use old enough fglrx for Radeon Xpress 200M. Now the question is: Since the original elyssa repos has be...

Please edit your post ASAP, from my firefox browser they look like this: touch - / .Xauthority chmod 600 - / .Xauthority And since they didn't work I tried with sudo. Oh me, oh my...

Re: xrdp - is it still active?

I guess you're right, this is not the advanced menu you want, just checked. Also I noticed that gnome minigames don't work, and I think they might be coded in Python too. Did you solve this problem?

I get the same error when accessing software manager, didn't notice that before. Thanks a bunch!

Re: xrdp - is it still active?

Oh yeah, I noticed that too. Once I ran the remote session for the first time there was no mint menu - I simply added it to the panel (right click on a panel, add applets..). It was merely disabled. It works flawlessly ever since. Also, I have found another side effect of my solution - some menu ite...

Re: xrdp - is it still active?

Aight, I got this working... For some reason it won't work with Cinnamon though, but I made MATE a desktop environment used for remote sessions only. So if anyone ever wonders how to achieve this: - Install mint-meta-mate - this will install MATE and let you use it for rdp sessions - Go to http://sc...

Re: How to enable Wake On Lan?

letting the PC sleep will crash the PC. That was exactly the reason why WoL support has been dropped from my adapter's linux driver. Spooky.

Re: How to enable Wake On Lan?

What kind of LAN adapter do you have? I struggled to make mine work for months until I realized WoL support has been dropped years ago because of unresolved stability issues. It's Qualcomm Atheros AR8161 Gigabit Ethernet (rev 10). You can check your network adapter make by running "lspci" ...

Re: Enabling S3 Trio as a second adapter

I have figured out some solutions, but none of them seems to work. - I have read that the "xserver-xorg-video-s3" package is essential, but it is already installed in Mint by default - I have removed "s3fg" from the kernel module blacklist, - Many people suggest modifying xorg.co...

Enabling S3 Trio as a second adapter

Hello! Just as stated in the subject, I've shoved a vintage S3 Trio to my system. I want to connect a projector to it and use it like a third monitor. The trouble is, Linux Mint 17.2 Cinnamon is only partially aware of my intentions. Although some commands do acknowledge the presence of my extra GPU...

Reinstall Mint and keep files and settings

Hello, I ran into problems a couple of months ago, essentially unabling my system to update (update-related applications won't work). I have tried many solutions but none seems to work, so I have decided to wait for new Mint distribution and simply reinstall the whole thing. This moment is now since...

Hi! So it seems that my problem is exactly the same. Thanks for the fix, I did replace all instances as instructed in mintInstall directory (lots of work) and it doesn't seem to help. :( Should I proceed with replacing that pieces of code in other directories hoping that it will finally run at some ...

One more thing: I've heard it's a good idea to stick to either aptitude or synaptic, and I chose Synaptic. Can I do your procedure using Synaptic? Should I?
