Re: SummerMint

Bump: As far as I know, nothing from http://eternalsolution.co.uk is in the Web Archive, the Google Cache, or any of several other search engines' caches. Does anyone have any of Sputty's wallpapers?

Re: Mint Install Tweak

yes, i know but imagine, you just installed mint and you are looking for software. If you made a lot of changes and then you hit apply, MAYBE you ticked something to instal or remove and so maybe you end up installing/uninstalling X software by accident +1 apt-get itself does the same thing: $ sudo...

Re: Install LinuxMint-7-XFCE inside Windows XP

I believe that mint4win creates a C:\mint\install\ folder and then downloads the .iso there.

If you put your .iso there, mint4win should see it and install it.

Edit: the ad blocker doesn't work though it needs WebKitGTK+ 1.1.14 :(
I guess the WebKit version in the PPA's isn't recent enough. I was going to compile WebKit, but it became too much work.

Howto: Compile the latest Midori web browser

Midori is a lightning-fast web browser based on WebKit. Unfortunately, the version in the repos is really old and it segfaults a lot. These webpages give you all the info you need to compile Midori: http://www.twotoasts.de/index.php?/pages/midori_summary.html http://brainwreckedtech.wordpress.com/20...

Re: How to Upgrade Amarok???? [solved]

Hi Carl, mintInstall can't uninstall programs yet. A quick forum search revealed that people are discussing how to add this feature to mintInstall. See http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=91&t=22843&p=167266&hilit=uninstall+with+mintinstall#p167266 for a post on this and other fe...

Re: Black Screen

Pressing Ctrl+Alt+F7 brings a black screen (no signal) Tried recovery mode, xfix was selected but still no signal I have tried to look at the xorg.conf file but there doesnt appear to be any ( sudo gedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf), maybe this is the problem?

Re: Black Screen

By the way, you said you couldn't get to Xfix. You can get to things like Xfix by going into "recovery mode". This is how you go into recovery mode in Mint4Win: Start your computer. When you get that screen that says "Select operating system to boot", select Linux Mint and hit en...

Re: Black Screen

Well, that's weird. Maybe I can still help. startx - get error: server is already running on display 0 If the X server is already running, maybe it's doing something. What happens when you type Ctrl+Alt+F7? This should bring up your 7th "virtual terminal" (or "TTY"), which is the...

Re: mintTool to select OS for next reboot

echo "savedefault --default=2 --once" | grub --batch According to http://sidvind.com/wiki/GRUB:_Boot_another_OS_once , this will make grub boot into the second choice on the grub menu on the next boot, without changing your default OS. I haven't tested it, but it seems like a good startin...

Re: How to Upgrade Amarok????

You can remove an application with: sudo apt-get remove program where "program" is the name of the program you want to remove. If you type the name of more than one program, all the programs whose names you typed will be removed. After you remove a program, you can remove leftover stuff wi...

Re: Black Screen

I'm new to Linux myself. I've only used it for a few months. But I'll take a crack at this. What happens if you log into the terminal window and type "startx"? If that doesn't work, maybe X (the software that gives you a GUI in Linux) is configured wrong. When you're in the grub menu, boot...
