Re: No Boot If Unused HDD Is Removed?

I would redo the Clean Reinstall correctly with the other HD unplugged. EFI installs provide many complications including with repairs which is why we cannot use normal methods to repair your new install so it boots on its own, which are to unplug the other HD, mark Win7 Active then run Startup Rep...

Re: No Boot If Unused HDD Is Removed?

I don't remember for sure, but I think it would have been pointed to the 250gb HDD. After it was all done I specifically wiped and formatted the 500gb HDD, so I am sure that the machine was running Linux from the 250gb boot drive. Is that more or less what you need to know? I notice my BIOS is set t...

No Boot If Unused HDD Is Removed?

This machine has a 250GB HDD in SATA 0 and a 500GB HDD in SATA 1. I recently installed Mint Cinnamon 64 bit from USB. I believed I was installing it to the 250GB HDD. The 250GB drive shows up in GParted as partition dev/sda1, file system ext4, flag = "boot" and shows 80GB used and 150GB unused. The ...

Does it do that with other video sources, like Youtube?
Not that I've noticed, it seems to be only on the CBS stuff.

Re: CBS tv shows won't play?

Thanks for the tips. I installed Chrome. I had forgotten that it is only the 32 bit version of Mint that has to use Chromium. I have transferred all my bookmarks and tabs over to Chrome. The CBS tv shows play in Chrome, but they stutter and the audio and video are not in sync, even when I use the lo...

SOLVED: CBS tv shows won't play?

Just made the switch to Mint Cinnamon 64 bit. At first I had trouble playing youtube clips but a codec update took care of that. Now I'm logging in to CBS All Access and I see that Chromium will not play any of the tv shows. All I get is a black window with a start/pause button, but the video never ...

Re: Newbie Trying To Install USB Wireless Adapter

When you are in the BIOS look for "boot" boot order, something like that - it may be tricky to find so walk through all the menus - you are looking for boot order - It will be there. Then look for UEFI - that is secure boot. You want Legacy boot - hopefully that is a choice. Usually you can use the...

RESOLVED: Newbie Trying To Install USB Wireless Adapter

This adapter I bought on the bay cheap, I believe the machine is at least seeing its presence. When I do lsusb it does show up as a Realtek device: soundchaser@SC59 ~ $ sudo lsusb Bus 001 Device 002: ID 0bda:0811 Realtek Semiconductor Corp.

Easy Friendly SWF Editor

I recently realized that LibreOffice Impress will let me create a slide show and export it as a swf file. I used to have Swish on my Windows machine, but now I no longer have that option. All I need to do is add an mp3 soundtrack to my slideshow. I don't really care if it's swf or not, just that swf...

Re: Flash Drive For A Win7 System Drive Clone?

Thanks. After some reading it looks to me like it's a choice between Clonezilla and Trinity Rescue Kit. Both read as if they are very user friendly, but I'm going to start with Clonezilla and see how far I get. I have it downloaded and unzipped to my bootable 256GB flash stick. I'll start messing ar...

Re: Flash Drive For A Win7 System Drive Clone?

I've been reading a little bit about these, found this from a simple google search. Anybody like anything on this "top 10" list? The Trinity Rescue Kit reads like it might be a good one to try. I didn't get much from any "clonezilla" searches, and it doesn't pop up in my Software Manager when I sear...

Flash Drive For A Win7 System Drive Clone?

My home office machine has been on Mint for about 9 months or so. But my basement music studio computer is running Windows 7 Pro 64 bit. Someone I work with suggested that I could use something called Clonezilla to make a restorable image of my Windows 7 c drive, as a way to backup my Win 7 c drive ...

Re: Mint Code Editor for Personal Web Site

Bluefish is very similar, with a few more options for tagging, etc..... and I think it has an FTP connectivity built in for uploading changes. It only took me about 40 minutes to establish the same feel and workflow that I had going in Geany. I'm going to use both for a few days, side by side, with ...

Re: Mint Code Editor for Personal Web Site

Really like the Geany IDE, it seems to resemble a kind of self-taught workflow that I got used to a few years ago when I started the personal web site. Nice to have what amounts to a near real time wysiwiyg when I run it side by side with the browser, so I can see results immediately. Keeping the di...

When I click to download the Google Web Designer (Beta) it looks like it is intended only for 64 bit systems.

Please select your download package

Re: Mint Code Editor for Personal Web Site

I like Geany because the sidebar displays the "classes" in my .css files, making it easy to jump to the right section quickly - as you can see in the screenshot. Ahhhh! That would be nice. Many times I have hit the Find button just to jump to a particular place in the style sheet. The class listing...

Because of the way it looks? or is there more to it? Is it more friendly in some way? One of the "10 best...." articles I read mentioned it by name.

Re: Mint Code Editor for Personal Web Site

I cut out the results that I didn't think would matter......you got the gist of it, that my old machine is under powered. But it's just slow, otherwise it does get the job done, especially if I don't try to multi task. I'll scrape up some $$$ for newer hardware in the near future. I will end up repl...
