Re: Sound not working in Mint 18.3

I've also noted that my outputs seem to want to "switch"? between headphones and line out. I just unplug the cord and plug it in the other output.....weird stuff, but still.... if it works....

Re: Sound not working in Mint 18.3

Did you try installing 18.1, then upgrading to 18.3?

Re: Sound not working in Mint 18.3

However, looking a bit closer, I see the top one is grayed out. This is no doubt indicative of your problem.

Re: Why won't this work on USB?

I couldn't get 2.0usb to install either. But it's okay, I just wanted to experiment a bit. Thanks for all the help.

Re: Why won't this work on USB?

Okay then. I knew the drive may not last as long, but I thought it'd be comparable to a SSD. I guess for now, I'm better off with using up this old hdd on the StarTech adapter. Speed seems to be about the same as the internal hdd, so no problems there. I have a new hdd I'm setting up to install soon...

Why won't this work on USB?

I'm confused. I run a laptop hdd with mint on a cabled usb adapter. No drive in the laptop, just the usb hdd. I can save everything I do, and all's well. The USB mint 18.3 swaps between 3 different machines and works just fine on them all. My problem now is I'd like to just use a 3.0 USB flash/thumb...

Re: Sound not working in Mint 18.3

What "other live linux distros"? I only have Mint installed. what that means use https://distrowatch.com/ DOWNLOAD another distro and test the sound. OK. I can only do that by replacing my operating distro. I have no desire to do that. Any other solutions? Perhaps I may be of assistance? This happe...

Re: [SOLVED] Getting an Asus usb ac53-nano wireless adapter to work

Thanks Trav. However, I did have it installed correctly, but the Dell Optiplex 780 sux, and gave me nothing but heartache and browser crashes. Not the drivers, nor the USB, both are fine on other linux machines. CPU tests fine, RAM tests fine, etc. so it's likely in the main board. But....whattaya w...

Re: Secret Maryo Chronicles question

I figured out what the problem was, more or less. The original problem was this Optiplex machine. But...when I ran the game on my laptop with mint, it had errors as well, i.e. the character would move a few inches, then freeze, then move again. (this made jumping rather difficult.) However, I got th...

Re: Secret Maryo Chronicles question

Now that's a possibility I had not considered. Has anyone here played PAST world_2? If not, you're likely correct. The kids enjoyed playing what was there though, so I'll try to get the newest 'chapter' installed for them now. Thanks!

[solved] Secret Maryo Chronicles question

The kids (wink-winkl) are having problems with this game. Everything is fine until it gets to level 14(?) "world_2". I've read other reviews, bug reports, etc. that indicate the game does go further than this, worlds 3, 4, etc. Nothing seems to allow the little guy to enter this last(?) level though...

Re: I'm with Fred

Mornin' Fred. Sorry if I hijacked your title. I can change it if you wish. I'm just happy I'm able to use mint now. Some of us are cursed with mental "disorders" that cause us to think "differently". Unfortunately, sometimes people pre-judge us upon a simple sentence or our looks, or.....whatever. P...

Re: I'm with Fred

Sorry for any confusion! I was simply agreeing with Fred's post a couple before mine, and Thanking all of you that were so helpful. ...and hey, I'm perfectly okay if anyone wants to chuckle at my newbieness or nuttiness. Still curious why that darn 750 won't co-operate with mint.... weird bugs there...

Thanks to all who have us assisted here, but contrary to my nick, I'm giving up. Okay, okay...I'm not giving up on LinuxMint, in fact, I'm on it now on a different machine, but I AM giving up on trying to run it on the optiplex 750. SO many errors and problems with linux, but it ran windblows just f...
