Re: Photo management with central server

Nope, both users are the same. I can conform the files are being updated from both machines (by changing data that DOES get put in the file).

As I said in the later post though, the issue now is Picasa not properly handling a 'sometimes there' location.

Re: Photo management with central server

Think I made some progress, but not really. I reason I was seeing conflicting info about what data Picasa stores in images (versus database) was because poeple are talking about different versions. I updated my version to 3.8 and now the tag info seems to be going into the files OK. Still an issue w...

Re: Photo management with central server

An update: I now have the correct directories shared, and residing on a Win7 server. Both Mint clients are happily accessing the one profile. However ran into another issue: tag information updated in Picasa is not visible if I directly view the image on the clients using gthumb, or eye of gnome or ...

Photo management with central server

I have what I thought would be a pretty normal set up these days: central server where all our photos and music sits, and 2 Mint clients accessing this. I have been hunting around for a photo management application that properly handles tagging and emailing of images, and also the fact the images ar...

Re: FSTAB entry to mount Win7 share [SOLVED]

Are you using the Debian based version of Mint? Debian has a lot of this stuff missing - still thinks of itself as a server without a desktop environment I guess. Hell no, I don't use Debian and I don't drive a tractor to work, for much the same reasons! :wink: Main gnome version here, and cifs-uti...

Re: FSTAB entry to mount Win7 share [SOLVED]

Thanks for that, cifs-utils was missing. With that added both smbfs and cifs work so I guess I should use cifs. Still need to get some permissions sorted properly because this has been read only for now and want to shift to rw, but can sort that later. Kinda strange a component needed for auto-mount...

FSTAB entry to mount Win7 share [SOLVED]

I've just done a fresh install of Mint 10 main and my mount for a remote Win7 share is now broken. I don't think I had to install anything special previously for it to work, but maybe something I have forgotten. My fstab line is: //192.168.1.90/users/public/Music /home/smac/Music smbfs password= 0 0...

Re: Logitech Quickcam For Business

Hey there, I'm also fiddling with a quickcam and skype.

As the latest skype is now missing camera settings, are you finding the that the settings controlled via luvcview (or I'm using guvcview) are being used by skype?

Logitech Quickcam Pro 9000 - Mint 9

I am having issues with this camera on Mint 9 main. It's being detected OK, but testing using Skype and GUVCVIEW gives me a good solid 4.5 frames per second - unusable. This does not vary if resolution and other settings are changed, so I do not believe it's a hardware performance issue (this system...

Re: Lightning extension in Thunderbird: now broken

I had my profiles moved to another partition and although Lightning appears to load nothing works. Move profile back to install partition and al...

Lightning extension in Thunderbird: now broken

I have just upgraded to Mint 9, and for the most part am very happy. Several of the new usability tweaks have been relevant for me. However, I have just tried to reactivate my calendar (Lightning, Thunderbird) and it's falling flat. The extension loads, but several of the options are greyed out, inc...

Re: Damaged filesystem (solved)

Thanks for that. Because gparted was halfway through moving stuff around I still don't know exactly what happened, but your suggestion put me on the right track. Repaired the partition table (I think), then manually edited the grub menu list as the locations were out of date.

Sorted. Happy :) Thanks

Damaged filesystem (solved)

I've aimed for the correct section - please move if I've missed.... I have a fat32 partition that automounts on boot. I unmounted this partition then resized it using gparted. A very helpful person then canceled this operation before completion. No errors were given during the cancel apparently, how...

Re: NFS upload/download ratio

Not wireless causing it, just wireless that's not coping with it very well. I say not causing it because I'm not seeing the same pattern on wireless from server to client. Also, client to server traffic on ethernet has the same issue, just that the full duplex nature of ethernet seems to cope with i...

Re: NFS upload/download ratio

Interesting...(to me).... Just tried a download from server to client, and it's sitting happily 3.3-3.5MB/s, three times what I can get with an upload. The reply traffic is gone to, down to 10's of KB/s, far more like what I would expect. So, there's either something very odd about data transfer and...

NFS upload/download ratio

I've gone through a pretty steep learning curve recently in the process of setting up a file server. After a lot of tinkering the setup I've ended up with is the server running Freenas and offering up an NFS share. The client (my laptop running Mint 7) maps the NFS share at boot. Laptop is usually w...
