Re: Ubuntu One Client installed ! but where is it ?

Why does ubuntuone not have ubuntuone-controlpanel-qt included in the default dependencies list as it's the only way for the frontend gui to work :x I mentioned it to clem in chat but not sure if it can be added to mint repositor...

Re: Touchpad not active on my Terra Laptop

I tried all the suggestions I could find in the forums (Mint/Ubuntu/Arch/openSUSE) I was just about to try another distro which needed me to switch the bios boot from efi to csm :idea: when I noticed the 'internal pointing...' was set to DISABLED. :shock: I must have done that when I was testing a l...

Re: Enable tap to click?

I already had 1 click to open files using behaviour/preferences and this opened files ok with one click but not icons on the desktop. I tried the above suggestion but I still can't get desktop icons to open without clicking twice.

Re: Adding files to screensaver/backgrounds in Mint 9 LXDE

Hi willysc1. you need to open a terminal and type sudo pcmanfm That opens file manager as root then open usr/share/backgrounds. Now click the filemanager icon on the panel to open another filemanager as user and open the file with your background and drag it into the root file. I assume it should be...

Re: New install: can't login

Hi Dr.U I'm not sure about the chroot method from live cd but I found out that if you set your password with space and characters as mine was. It accepts this during installation but for some reason it only accepts alpha numeric passwords at login :( So I did a re-install. Hopes this helps.

But clicking on the icon does nothing.Also after removing, autoremoving and purging there is still a dead link to wesnoth in the games category. Otherwise I reall...

I think if we, as a community take the chance to 'big up' Linuxmint all over the web, people will start to take notice. I have been leaving posts on bulletin boards and forums whenever I see the opportunity to raise the profile of Mint. For the latest one see here. http://blogs.iium.edu.my/jaiz/2009...

Re: Which Linux OS would you like to see pre-installed?

I would clearly love to see Mint pre-installed as it is one of the top few distros, in my experience, that work out of the box. Unfortunately another distro (PCLinuxOS2009) has one advantage and it is a big one in my opinion-Broadcom firmware for laptops. Mint and others running the B43-fwcutter dri...

LFX is the UK's most popular mag for Linux and ships worldwide so there is an opportunity here to promote the best distro (imho). This would a...
