Re: Very low sound

Try and increase the PCM volume. You can find this in the right-click menu of the Volume Manager icon in the notification area.

Re: Why Amarok?

Well, I'm not very literate in terms of these DLLs and dependencies... :oops:

If its a "bloat", then its time that Exaile gets some more public attention :!:

Well, thats a nice way of seeing it!!

Magnatune is supported by Amarok 1.4 too...I have never even tried it till date. And I guess, I'll do the same with all their other commercial 'bindings'.

The choice is upto us.

Can the UUID change if we format the partition from another OS?? Because, it once happened to me that I formatted a FAT32 partition from Win and Mint stopped auto-mounting it.

On my laptop, the System Monitor shows a much higher load with Exaile than Amarok. So I would stick to Amarok.

I had to change the ntfs to ntfs-3g but that dint work until, for some strange reason, I had to replace all the UUID=... with the corresponding /dev/sdax

All is fine now. Thanks a lot

But I wonder what is the difference between specifying UUID and /dev/sdax?

For example, I could never get Ubuntu to play rmvb. But, Mint just does it!!

Hi and welcome to Linux Mint. :) I have never used XFCE so this is just a shot in the dark (i.e...I'm really sorry if this doesn't work) Goto Preferences>Main Menu or type alacarte in the terminal. This should bring up the program to add and remove stuff from menu. By the way, It would be nice if yo...

Yes. Just go to 'Add to Panel' on the right click menu and search for 'Menu Bar'

So its the problem with the manufacturers who expect that Wind0ws will change the default value as required. No. At http://www.linux-hero.com/rant/ubuntu-hard-drive-explosions a lead Ubuntu developer says:... I just quoted what was written in the first link I posted. So that guy is wrong, I guess. ...

(sudo) chmod doesn't work either...because the partitions are mounted as Read-Only even for the administrator. Heres what the fstab contains: # /etc/fstab: static file system information. # # <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass> proc /proc proc defaults 0 0 # /dev/sda6 UUID=591...

Is it possible to boot?


My mistake. What I wanted to say was even as root user I'm not able to do any changes to these partitions, all of which are NTFS.

All partitions mounted as read-only solved

A friend of mine has this problem:

All his partitions are being mounted as read-only, even under root. Even sudo chmod doesn't work.

Any help?
