Re: Setup Tor Node and now I can't use Mint's IRC server

If you set up to be a tor node, you're banned, there's not much that's gonna change about that. We can't have the spammers that hide behind such proxies on the IRC nonstop, it is standard setup to block tor and similar IP addresses on IRC.

Re: HAL.DLL issues with Windows-LMDE dual-boot [solved]

First order of business; LMDE is extremely new and advertised as such, there are still bugs to work out in it and it isn't meant to be quite as much for the new users as Mint Main is, yet. That said, can I ask what brand of computer this is and roughly what year it was made? I think I know what is c...

Re: NAUTILUS wasteful search repeat

Nautilus development is handled far "upstream" from Mint, we have no part in it, so this complaint should probably be filed with the developers of nautilus rather than us here. I am not sure that there is a way to return to search results without re-running the search, that would require caching and...

Can you run the command "inxi -F" in terminal and paste the output here? Will help determine the cause.

Re: Wireless not connecting after suspend

Being familiar with Arch Linux and not really Linux Mint anymore, this may not be very helpful... The wireless driver you have is somehow loading poorly on resume from suspend, which isn't all that uncommon. There are two things I can think of that would fix it, the first is to add the module "resum...

Re: Switching from Gentoo - Update questions

Mint's not like Gentoo and stays "stable" and, in some people's opinion, "out of date". It's not at all meant to be a rolling release, only the Debian edition is, and it's not gonna be very KDE friendly, so... sorry, but basically, afaik, you're out of luck. >.>

Re: modprobe wl (broadcom 4313) doesnt load on reboot

I don't use mint, so I cannot verify this but http://forum.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=90&t=29993&start=0 states that adding a line with just "wl" to the file /etc/modules will fix it for you. So to do this, in terminal, run "gksu gedit /etc/modules" and simply add a line "wl", save and exit. (not...

Re: Xfce, Gnome, and Open Office

The binary executable files (roughly the equivalent to "the program" in Windows) are often contained in /bin, /usr/bin, /usr/local/bin or something similar depending on the type of program and Linux distribution you are running on, and yes, there always is one file that is "the program" and, as on w...

Re: Dual Monitor Setup in Linux Mint 10 Julia with Nvidia G3

In nvidia-settings, enable the second monitor as a secondary X screen, then check the "enable Xinerama" checkbox before saving to your X.org configuration file, might solve your issues.

Hope that helps.

Re: .bin files

.bin files are meant to be run, not "installed". In terminal, cd to the directory of the file, then run ./filename. If that gives you a permission error, chmod a+x filename and try again.

Re: Does Linux have wifi hotspots?

Wi-Fi "hotspots" are just pulicly available wireless access points... and therefore can be accessed by anything with a compatible wireless card, and in the case of linux, the wireless card's drivers.

Re: HDMI Sound through GTX 460

If it works in windows, it's probably configured using spdif out through hdmi... which might be trivial but may not, I'm truly surprised you cannot get it in alsamixer, and I would try pulse audio configurations as well (paprefs or pavucontrol in terminal). HDMI output will almost definitely be cons...

Re: Can some give me a link to find the cheese app to downl

After you showed up on IRC, I searched for you. V4L has a driver that apparently works for some people not for others. That's your only hope. I would look into V4L GE webcams. (driver sn9c102 suggested by several google results.)

Re: Installing a deb file will install what is currently in

Uninstall the app from synaptic, including the version from the repos, then install it from the .deb again. There's also a chance it uses a different name for it's binary file which would potentially cause issues. Also check that the version is indeed latest or not, either using <command> --version ...

Re: Total Newb

You should not, in Mint, install nvidia drivers using the .run files. Instead, go to "Hardware Drivers" in the Administration menu, I think, and install them from there. If it doesn't detect any drivers, then your card is most likely not supported by them.
