Re: Considerations before you install

Hello All readers of this thread. I'm really welcome fred's suggestions as they compare with my experience in many installations -- mostly. The best way for Gamers might be an extra partition /usr/local for installation. I really surprised that this Partition is not mentioned by anyone else. Most, ...

Re: Considerations before you install

Sory I've made a typo:

sudo chown -R nathan:nathan /usr/local
is better :)
Sorry!
And Yes
sudo chown -R bed:bed /usr/local/games
sudo chown -R bed:bed /usr/local/bin (here in bin comes most start links for games, so enabling writing is good, also)

is smarter

Re: We are happy to be back again

It seems, Clem should delegate this admin job for the Forum to someone that has experience and TIME enough to protect the forum and it's community for malicious things and spammers.
It's a worthfull job and I am sure Clem could do better things than that...
Just a thought.

Re: Mint Upload!

I would like to have the Upload Function extended. It would be nice to upload to server via ftp , sftp or scp , too. The setting have to be in good unix tradition in the $HOME-dir of the user i.e. ~/.mintupload/serversettings.xml|conf|or whatever. In the moment the config is in the deep of share, it...

Re: Linux Mint is the best!

Me too.
For the Asus G1 this is the best solution ever. I'll sure for other laptops, too.
Most notable is the genius mintupdate. This should float back to Ubuntu and Debian too.

Re: My Mint is randomly hanging :-(

Do have any network especially nfs resources mounted at your box?
If, could it be that nautilus hangs?
does ctrl-ALT-F1 work and gives you a console?

I have tracked down the problem a bit.

Code: Select all

 /usr/lib/libgdk-x11-2.0.so.0

My libgtk2.0-0 is 2.12.0-1ubuntu

I've installed kde, including kdm. It works, but my browser firefox and thunderbird and all the other stuff with gtk are not working. of course they need this lib !
