KDE 8 - No music/sound playback on Acer Aspire One

When I log in, the KDE Control Module opens up and shows me my output device preference.

I have:

HDA Intel (ALC272 Analog)
PulseAudio

listed. PA doesn't work, and I cannot click the other HDA one.
Thanks for any assistance.

Re: Mint 7 on persistent pendrive: "Could not find kernal image"

All, I tried this method to make a "persistent" USB version of Linux Mint KDE Gloria. It didn't work. I've also tried several manual/terminal methods and have been unsuccessful. Felicia works fine in persistent mode. Not sure what changed going to Gloria. If anyone has managed to get a pe...

Re: Cannot connect to my college's wireless network :(

Apparently, many people are having problems connecting to the internet at school.

Maybe there is a slim chance that this will work once they get it all figured out! :)

How do I install XP from an .ISO alongside Mint?

I backed up my XP before I deleted it, and then installed Mint. Well Mint won't work with my school's wireless, (probably the linux), so I'll need to reinstall XP without deleting anything from Mint.

How should I go about this?

Thank you.

Cannot connect to my college's wireless network :(

I was at school yesterday seeing if I could connect to my university's wifi. I scanned the area and found a: two VT Wireless signals and a VT WLAN. Typically on Vista, the comp would connect automatically, and when I would open up a webbrowser, a section of my school's site would come up where I wou...

Screen resolution is always 800*600 on my 17" laptop...

How do I change this? This is way to big, heh. The only options are this, and another smaller setting.

Please help! Thanks :)

Download the LinuxMint-7.iso and copy it to the USBMint folder on your desktop 3. From the USBMint folder on your desktop, run fixmin...

Re: I want to install Mint on my laptop, but I cannot back up?

I think I will pass on installing it to the HD. I've read a comment from someone with the same laptop as mine, and he said that the computer would not stop taking energy from the battery even after shutting down off mint. That is complete nonsense. If you "suspend" any laptop using any op...

Best way to prepare partitioning space?

Hi, I plan to keep Mint as my main distro on my AA1, but I am still experimenting with other distros (non which I enjoy as much as Mint 7). But Mint has taken all of my HD. How can I resize mint smaller, and leave about 10GB for another distro (I am planning on GoblinX mini edition) that won't inter...

Re: How much space does Mint take up?

Oh fantastic. Let me know how it goes! Did you format it also to ext3 with a NTFS partition also? Or did you select the "Use entire disk option"?

How much space does Mint take up?

I am just experimenting here. I have Gloria on my netbook, but I want to make a persistent liveUSB.

For practice I have formatted my 2GB USB drive. With about 1.3 GB ext3 and the rest NTFS. Will 1.3GB be enough for Mint? Thank you.

(I plan to purchase an 8GB USB here soon)

Re: I want to install Mint on my laptop, but I cannot back up?

Thank you for that response.

And you are sure that this will keep vista operational? I'm not sure what disk defragment does, but will look it up following this. I just have to have vista working for school, a lot of software has to go on there for my lab classes and if it doesn't work, uh oh. :D

I have a 60GB C: drive (and another 60GB D:) I have about 50GB filled already, so that makes it almost impossible to back that up. And I need vista in working condition for school when it starts up next week (go hokies) and I am afraid that installing Mint will mess it up. Mint worked *perfectly* fo...

When I downloaded 10 beta 3, I used to open in that installer package. I didn't save it or anything. Let me see what I can do now. Thanks for helping so far.

Is there a simple or built in way to check the temp.

I tried to install the acpitool or apcitool (sp?) but I didn't know where to go from there.

Thank you.
