Re: Help Quit Working

F1 or a program menu.

Neither work anymore for some reason.

A while back I uninstalled something and it messed up my sound system.
No one knew the answer.
Ended up formatting the HD and installing Linux Mint again.
Looks like this is going to happen again... :( :( :(

Re: Disable F1 key (help browser)

I am having similar issues. F1 can not be disabled for help even if the keyboard shortcut is disabled. Also in NCURSES coding the keyboard can not be fully intercepted. ie F1 key is still HELP. I assume that other coding also can not intercept all of the function keys. I am now having an issue where...

Linux Mint Converts CDA to WAV

When I look at an Audio CD it shows as WAV, not CDA.
Other systems like Windows show CDA, why not Linux?

Xcopy alternative

View WMF Crashes

I tried reporting this to Mint but they say it is not related to Mate Desktop. PROBLEM: Viewing some WMF's causes the viewer to CRASH. This happens with all programs: viewers, caja file manager, whatever. I don't see how this is not related but that is what THEY tell me. I can edit these WMF's with ...

GRUB

Since I tried HIBERNATE, GRUB is now coming up every time I turn OFF/ON the Computer.

It did not used to do that. It used to start right up in Mint, which is what I want. I do not want GRUB, I do not want a LOG-ON screen, I just want Mint to start.

Mouse: No Middle Button

Are we going back to the Dark Ages? Multi-Button Pointing Devices have be around for many years but NO Operating Systems support them.

Having the same problem with my new Mint installation. VB WinXP shows connected to LAN but no Internet. No firewall or security is running in VB WinXP.
