Re: Facebook

Your browser won't make your FB page vanish. Sounds like an issue with FB itself, the page being removed for whatever reason. Have you tried contacting FB and asking about it?

Re: 17.1 Compiz + NVidia + dual screen

Odd. I'm running an install of Mate 17.1, Compiz enabled, and using an Nvidia card 560GTX (from memory),with driver installed, and not having this issue. Dual-monitors working fine. Have you looked at the Monitors setting, and see if anything is amiss there?

Re: Enabling VNC server in KDE

Not overly familiar with that, but why don't you just use KDRC ? Much easier to setup.

Re: Linuxmint running slow after install

I have had this happen once after an inatsll, and it was most frustrating. Finally gave up trying to get it to co-operate and blew it away again, seemed fine after re-install. Still no idea why it behaved so damn slowly.

Re: USB 2.0 Stereo Sound Card Adapter not working

Have you gone into the actual sound settings, and made sure it's set as the output? I have to use similar sometimes, and often the icon being right-clicked to choose doesn't do it, and needs to manually change the setting. At least in my experience.

Re: Rip a DVD to the hard drive?

Try DVDDecrypter under WINE. Works a treat for me, as I've ripped my entire collection, and then encoded the results with Handbrake, keeping the end-results on my home-server. Yep DvdDecrypter is a good program. But doesn't do compression or editing dvd. Dvd shrink does the compression,De-select la...
