Re: Skype 8.13.0.2

Skype Web works with Google Chrome (maybe also with Chromium?) and Vivaldi. After some time the audio e video desynchronise, but maybe this is a further problem of my party and me. Firefox in Linux is not (still?) supported in Skype Web. Did you try also these browsers? Thanks. I appreciate your "fo...

Re: How to update your kernel for Meltdown

I just want to report some issues about the kernel update. My laptop: Intel Core i5, Intel Corporation 3rd Gen Core processor Graphics Controller, Linux Mint 17.2 Rafaela 64bit. With the suggested kernel 3.13.0-139-generic everything seems working fine, but I cannot change the screen brightness. Wit...

Re: Skype 8.13.0.2

It seems there is a new version of Skype (that is 8.14.76.4), but in Synaptic it is still marked as "unstable".

Re: Skype 8.13.0.2

Thanks for the hint. I used the "force version" in Synaptic to force the use of 8.11.0.4 and it is working (that is, only the usual problems...) now. Same here. Linux Mint 17.3 and blank window of new Skype. I uninstalled 8.13.0.2, manually downloaded deb package, and installed 8.11.0.4 from Skype r...

Re: Skype 8.13.0.2

This answer from Skype support is likely not correct. Linux Mint 17.x is based on Ubuntu 14.04, hence Skype should properly working. Moreover, it seams that also Ubuntu users have similar problems (reading some forum in internet). The update is just broken. Anyway you all are luky guys... In my comp...

On another computer I happily use Linux Mint 17.2 "Rafaela", should I try 17.3 "Rosa" or some other 17.x? What do you suggest (in general, not related to this problem)?

ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5470 support in Linux Mint

Hi! In my 6-years-old laptop the graphic card is a ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5470. I actually installed Linux Mint 18 Sarah, which works, but in "software rendering mode". As far as I understand from several pages in the web, the problem is that the shipped Xorg is no more compatible with the fglrx dri...

Re: [SOLVED] How to update Flash and LibreOffice

Firefox can't use a PPAPI plugin directly, so that won't work. You could install the package browser-plugin-freshplayer-pepperflash (it's in Debian Jessie's backports repository). This will provide Rinat Ibragimov's freshplayerplugin which translates the PPAPI to Firefox's NPAPI. Thank you for the ...

Re: Broadcom BCM43228 error: ERROR @wl_notify_scan_status : wlan0 Scan_results error (-22)

Maybe I spoke too early. Now I get this error (frequently)

Code: Select all

ERROR @wl_inform_single_bss : cfg80211_inform_bss_frame error
Then the wifi loses the connection with the modem.

Could that be due to too many modems in my neighbourhood?

Any suggestion?

Thanks!

Re: Firefox Sync not working on Linux Mint 17.2 Rafaela 64 bit

For completeness I post a workaround that works for me. I manually modified the MTU to 1250 (the default value is 1500) with sudo ifconfig eth0 mtu 1250 sudo ifconfig wlan0 mtu 1250 This seems to be a workaround, but I cannot explain why Firefox on Windows 10 has not the same issue (and the default ...

Hello everybody! I installed Linux Mint 17.2 from the DVD and I found today that several files, which in my opinion should be owned by root.root, are instead owned by my normal account (the one created during the installation) and the related group. Files with wrong ownership are /etc/firefox-3.0 /e...
