It works fine on Firefox on Regular Linux ...

I just recently had Linux Mint Debian Mate on one computer and Mageia 2 ( a Mandriva variant on another. ) I have basically used Linux Mint in some form and a Mandriva variant for y...

Mint Backup Jury Still Out?

I know that Mint Backup looks easy and works 90% of the time, but I have usually had some glitches with it, and it is so much slower than LuckyBackup. Which I have been defaulting to, as Mint Backup is so much slower and has had errors on two or three of my previous backups. I appreciate the work th...

Re: Why Chromium, but no Chrome, in the software center?

Chrome is good. I just keep having a problem with Isadora that Chrome disappears when I
reboot. I have no idea why.

Weird. I installed Chromium to see if it does the same.

Re: May 12th at 7:40pm. Cannot connect to any Mint repos.

I kept on changing repos and finally the french repo refreshed and I'm back in business.
I thought the repos or such might be updating or something.

Re: Mint 8 Helena hangs (total freeze)

I installed the deb files for the kernel you recommended from the ramoonus blog. It recognized the new kernel, and I've now worked on the computer with no glitches and much better response. I think it is the answer overall to Helena 8. Its a better kernel, and more stable than the one off the disk o...

Re: blank screen

Same issue with Helena. I didn't have such an issue in the previous
version though. Its not every ten minutes. It sometimes varies. I've
tried fsck to fix the problem, but nothing changes.

Re: Can't Retrieve Updates In New KDE

I finally commented out the medibuntu repository and the mintupdates went without a hitch. I don't know what is wrong with my sources list for that repository, but it would run to 99% then just freeze.

Re: Can't Retrieve Updates In New KDE

When I try to do an apt update it just freezes at 99% at the medibuntu.org line in the sources download in konsole. That is the farthest, but it is the last line or so for repository in my sources list. It has a problem there. I have reinstalled the KDE community and double checked the sources list....
