Re: Oracle VirtualBox shows only the home directory and drive

This sounds, as if the internal hdds are not mounted in your Mint system. Either do that (you need to click on the device in question inside of your file manager in the side bar) or copy the iso-file to your SSD. In principle browsing for the ISO-file does not work much differently in Mint and in W...

Re: Oracle VirtualBox shows only the home directory and drive

A virtual machine is an encapsulated machine inside of the host. It does not use - by intention - the drive and the folders on the host. But you can create shared folders, which allow to exchange data between host and guest. For making this work it is mandatory, that you install inside of the guest...

Oracle VirtualBox shows only the home directory and drive

Hi, Yesterday I've done a clean install of linux mint 18 Cinnamon on my pc and finished updating everything.

Re: MDM HTML5 Themes

Hi, I haven't found any discussion about this issue anywhere on the internet. Why is every HTML5 theme not removing the caps lock warning sign when caps lock is off? You have to manually click outside of the input box for it to realize caps lock is off and update the display... This is very confusin...

Re: Login background won't change from the gray fiber image

Your Cinnamon version is very outdated! Don't you do updates? I don't know I just installed what I downloaded from the main mint website. I didn't realize all these updates at the bottom were necessary. There are just so many of them I got a little intimidated. Do I need all of the suggested update...

Re: Login background won't change from the gray fiber image

Select the top most theme: GTK. BTW: If you reread the command I gave you, than you will find, that the option is a capital S. (Copying a given command instead of typing manually would be a way to prevent such errors.) Regarding the user name: I never have bothered about that and don't know a way, ...

Re: How to remove the keyboard layout flags in the taskbar

You did not tell your version of Mint and your desktop environment. If you don't know open a terminal and enter: inxi -S Paste the output here. The following is for Cinnamon: Right click the flag icon and select to set up. In the options deselect the option for the flag. Thank you your suggestion w...
