Re: Separate Compilation in Mint

Make sure the name of the makefile is "Makefile" or "makefile".
And add tabs before "recipe" lines, not spaces. In other words:
quad: $(OBJS)
<TAB>$(CC) $(CFLAGS) $(OBJS) $(LDFLAGS)
clean:
<TAB>rm $(OBJS) quad
Also, make sure that all your files are in one folder.

Re: Wakeup from sleep and hibernation with continuous fan no

Sounds like an acpi problem. When you say "upgrade" do you mean you made a fresh install or upgraded on top of the old version? Because it may have to do with the new kernel, so maybe switching kernels could work. You can also try different kernel boot parameters as suggested here: https://wiki.arch...

Re: Errors with dpkg

Check with Synaptic Package Manager that python 2.7 is installed, and if not install it.
If it is, type this in the terminal to list the python executables:
ls -l /usr/bin | grep python

Re: Errors with dpkg

I think you need the 2.7 version with the missing module.
Try entering this: python2.7 --version. Do you get the version back?
Edit: yes, apparently they have changed the module name to "configparser" in Python 3.

Re: Errors with dpkg

It seems that some python modules are missing. Check that you have python installed.
Also check that you have the module ConfigParser using:
ls /usr/lib/python2.7 | awk '/^C/{print $0}'

You don't have to choose between Linux and Windows. Why limit your options when you can have both?

You can use dd:

Re: How to write a Bash shell script - by example

You can also give your script as an input to the bash interpreter:
bash /path/to/script
This way you don't need the shebang line and also not the chmod permission.
Works for other interpreter languages too, such as perl and python.

Re: Network manager indicator missing

Is your internet connection working though?
First look if it is already running: service network-manager status
Then try restarting it: sudo service network-manager restart

Re: Support for Japanese not working?

So maybe you are right and the filenames are messed up.
If you have the files on another system, you can also check the filenames there.
However, it may be easier to just rename the files yourself in case you don't have many files.

Re: Firefox!

Sorry, but Firefox is perfect as always. So it may be a problem with your system or it is really you : )
Habitual, what do you mean by "compressed layouts"? If you mean the look and feel, you can install Classic Theme Restorer.

Copy and paste the path to the folder with the music files as if it were a website, for example: /home/user/music
Or simply enter "/home" and navigate to the folder.

Re: Support for Japanese not working?

Possibly, but you might want to try with another program to make sure. Can you download Firefox from the repositories?
Also, have you tried the other two Japanese encodings with convmv? Same result?

Re: Support for Japanese not working?

Because it probably checks the contents of the files, not their names. Anyway, you need to convert the filenames to utf-8, not to other encodings, so that the file manager can understand them. Try specifying the following encodings to convmv as the source encoding: iso-2022-jp, euc-jp, shiftjis. To ...

Re: Support for Japanese not working?

Okay, so it looks like an encoding problem. As I wrote in my first post, you can rename the files yourself or use "convmv" to convert the names to Unicode. Before converting the names though, you will need to find the encoding that was used in the file names. You can use the web browser for this. Op...

It may be the fonts or the encoding of the file names. First enter this in the terminal to make sure you have Japanese fonts installed: fc-list :lang="ja" Also verify that you can view Japanese in general. For example, in the browser and in the names of files you create yourself. If everything seems...
