Re: [solved]Share files between linux desktop and linux lapt

I would not mess with the repo. Just download the package you need and install it. https://launchpad.net/nitroshare/+download

Re: Share files between linux desktop and linux laptop

Some ppa repos will hose your system, but this one only has nitroshare and nothing else. You could even look to the right of that page and download the .deb package instead of adding the repo.

Re: Mint 14 KDE?

The only quirk I can find is with the Firefox downloads. I don't get a download dialog, and downloads are set to automatically open with ark. The item doesn't get downloaded and put in in the home directory. If you just close ark when the download completes, the item isn't saved, and you have to dow...

Re: Trouble switching to KDE

Just FYI, but Mint 14 KDE will be out very soon (at least an RC).You could try it out via live DVD instead of actually installing kde-full and maybe not like it.

Re: Trouble switching to KDE

Open a terminal. Type in gksudo gedit /var/lib/dpkg/status and hit enter. Enter your password when prompted. Now search the file that opens and delete ANY/ALL files that contain "mint-kde-info" in their names. Save the file. Then in a terminal run sudo apt-get update sudo dpkg --configure ...

Re: Cannot install ubuntuone (SOLVED)

I don't think it has a dedicated gui/menu entry. It only has a gnome control center entry that points to ubuntuone-control-panel-qt.

Re: Medialink Wireless-N usb 2.0 adapter driver

Well, that would be funny if you wasn't having so much trouble. I personally bought this one for my dad's desktop running 12.10, and it was just "plug and play". http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16833127293&Tpk=DWA-131

Re: Medialink Wireless-N usb 2.0 adapter driver

Yeah, sometimes Linux hardware support can bite you. I (years later) only buy Linux supported hardware. It is only a matter of the manufacturer having a quality driver. Most hardware/software companies only support MS/Apple because that is where the money is. I have seen this link posted many times ...

Re: Medialink Wireless-N usb 2.0 adapter driver

Ubuntu 12.04 and Mint 13 still uses the pae kernel which lets the 32 bit version see all of your ram. Ubuntu 12.10 and Mint 14 doesn't have pae, so they will only see 4gb using the 32 bit version. As of Ub 12.10/Mint 14 you will have to use the 64 bit version to use all 6gb of your ram. The 32 vs 64...

Re: Trouble switching to KDE

If sudo dpkg --configure -a and sudo apt-get install -f doesn't do it, then you will have to uninstall all the mint kde related packages and edit /var/lib/dpkg/status to remove any files related to mint-kde-info and save the file. gksudo gedit /var/lib/dpkg/status After reloading the repos it should...

Re: VLC Can not turn off

You could try

Code: Select all

killall vlc
in a terminal. Or try

Code: Select all

ps -e | grep -i VLC
The first 4 numbers you should see is the process "ID" number. Then

Code: Select all

kill -9 <insert the number here>
If you have uninstalled vlc, a reboot should clear everything. It sounds like a memory leak.

Re: Trouble switching to KDE

It is a Mint packaging problem. You can only have one mint-info package at a time. There is a bug report here: https://bugs.launchpad.net/linuxmint/+bug/927487 You could install kde-full if you don't mind installing the full kde desktop.

Re: Medialink Wireless-N usb 2.0 adapter driver

I've seen reports that the rt3070 works out of the box with Ubuntu 12.10/Mint 14. If you want to stick to the LTS release, you might try this: http://askubuntu.com/questions/148767/help-do-i-install-the-ralink-rt3070-wireless-driver It seems the driver version on your CD has older driver versions.

Re: Unreadable tooltips in Digikam

You can install the KDE system settings tool and configure KDE to use the gtk theme/fonts/icons for better theme compatability.

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install systemsettings
My Cinnamon 14 digikam tooltips are black with white fonts. I didn't check them before doing the steps above.

Re: Where to add modprobe statement?

You would add b43 to /etc/modules. Run

Code: Select all

gksudo gedit /etc/modules

in a terminal.
Post the output of

Code: Select all

lspci -vvnn | grep 14e4

and

Code: Select all

lsmod

from a terminal before you modify anything. There could be something else causing b43 not to load.
