Re: Drivers for WiFi adapter not installing

if, you just happen into a local store, the Panda series WiFi USB adapters are supported by Mint. I have the PAU06 2.4g version and it works just fine.

Re: question on notifications CAPS LOCK

Because that is usually a function of the BIOS. on my laptop, clicking the Caplock key puts up a screen overlay, and it has nothing to do with the OS installed. it was that way on Win8.1 and now on any version of Linux that I install. even if I am running VirtualBox, the overlay pops up The same goe...

Re: Need to " Align to Grid " - [ Solved by accident ]

that 960 caused me to have to scroll everything sideways :(

don't know why it won't go back to 1366 dpi, but it took 1360 and figured "close enough"

Note to self:

when someone needs help, go to VirtualBox and play with that instead. :cry:

Re: Need to " Align to Grid " - [ Solved by accident ]

for whatever reason,

the Developers decided to let me check on ' Auto Arrange ' again, and it reverted back to ' Align to Grid '

??

why was the Option Align to Grid greyed out then?

it is fixed, but I want to know why??

BrosTrend RTL8812AU WiFi adapter not active

Just bought a new BrosTrend WiFi 5g WiFi adapter, that uses the RTL8812AU chip. Driver Manager recognized it, and installed the appropriate DKMS driver.
