Re: Evolution & gmail contact

Thanks for your prompt replay but I do not have problems with calendar. It doesn't sync the contact, the error is after following this guide (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Evolution):

Problemi Evolution e contatti gmail

Buongiorno, non riesco a sincronizzare i contatti Gmail con Evolution. Ho seguito alcune guide online ma il risultato è stato fallimentare.
Avete qualche suggerimento?
Linux Mint 18.3 Cinnamon, Evolution 3.18.5.2, kernel 4.13.0-37-generic
Grazie

Re: Virtual Box freeze the system

One step ahead... no more freeze of the system but this is what I get when trying to install windows XP. Same message for windows 10. I tried to download other versions but the system doesn't accept them.
Please, help needed

Re: language mixture

Check in the language settings -> add / remove languages, if there are incomplete languages. Install theme completely. Thanks for prompt replay but I'm still in trouble. Regional settings are ok. I downloaded Evolution and it is set to english... I tried Thunderbird and Kcalendar and both are "mixe...

language mixture

Goodmorning, I'm running the latest 18.3 Mate and I noticed that the language is not consistent: system is running basically in Italian (even if there is some manu or command in english) but most of the programm runs in english. When under Connamon all the systems and programs work in the correct la...

KDE VS Cinnamon

Hi all, I'd like to share with you some thoughts about KDE and Cinnamon. I believe both the GUI are pretty nice and easy to use and everything works fine and it's simple to understand (as for a newbie that came from MacOS), but I found two annoying differences. While Cinnamon could, as example, pair...

Re: Minimum Configuration for audio purpose

Playing audio isn't something that needs a lot of horsepower so I don't think leaving Cinnamon as it is will be a problem if it's a dedicated music machine. If it runs Windows 10 OK it should be fine with Cinnamon unless there's a hardware support issue but you don't say anything that'd indicate th...

Minimum Configuration for audio purpose

Hi all. Before questioning.... I'm a GNU/Linux newbie. I know how to use the GUI but not the command line and I'm not so young so be patient. I use Windows 10 with foobar2000 and WASAPI for my hi fi equipment but I tried to listen it with another laptop with Mint on board and (personal statement) it...

Re: Mint 18.2 and audio hi fi

Absolute nonsense. I use both and they sound identical. They probably do. Pretty much all the qualities and differences that hi-fi aficionados think they can hear disappear with blind or ABX listening - its' really pretty funny. Once you get past bargain-basement quality, speakers & headphones are ...

Re: Mint 18.2 and audio hi fi

Have you tried a different media player besides Clemente? There are some really excellent ones to choose from that should provide MUCH better sound than Clemente. I use Audacious because it gives me the sound quality that I need for my uber hi fi. Absolute nonsense. I use both and they sound identi...

Re: Mint 18.2 and audio hi fi

To the OP, I forgot to mention that since I have been using Linux for a few years I have learned a few things regarding hi fi audio playback that might come in handy to you. Right now I am using Kubuntu (a bit of distro hopping) but you can go into your system monitor ( I forget what it is called i...

Re: Mint 18.2 and audio hi fi

Great!!!! I used Audacius and I've to say.... stunning. It work perfectly. It switches from 44.1K to 192K. But.... In windows I used Foobar2000. A very simple and powerful program. You can select the music by organize it to be shown per Album, Song writer and folder too. Is there any chance Audacius...

Re: Mint 18.2 and audio hi fi

I do not want the program resample anything. I want it to play at the right bitrate. I'll try your suggestion but I try all the option and sample rate remain always 44.1K
