Re: Setting sensors limits ??? Grub2 problem?

I just booted up my computer and got the same "Setting sensors limits" message in the splash screen (except that I got "OK" at the end of that sentence, indicating the process was successful). I have never encountered this before, and I don't know how this came about, since I haven't been tinkering ...

Re: Start the name suggestions for Mint 11

Well, here are a few of my suggestions. ;) Linux Mint Kalpurnia (I know the usual spelling is Calpurnia, but Kalpurnia is its Polish form; Calpurnia was the name of Julius Caesar's last wife) Linux Mint Kassiopeia (believe me, that's the original Greek spelling of what has been latinized as Cassiope...

Re: Some windows are far too broad.

Please do not double post. This is not a bug. I am sorry; obviously I thought that they were two separate problems, given that the problem described in this thread only happened with websites like Flickr and Photobucket and the other problem only with 'native' Firefox windows. :?

Re: Firefox add-on window too small in Dutch Linux Mint.

This is not a mint or even a linux problem. See http://ohioloco.ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1150367 for an extended discussion. Thank you for response - at least I now know that I am not alone. :) It is sad that this aspect of Firefox does not work out of the box on Linux Mint (which must the...

First, I hope that this section of the Linux Mint discussion board is the right place to post this thread, because I don't think this subject qualifies for the "Report bugs"-section of the board (it's more an error in development, if anything).

Several missing Dutch translations in Linux Mint 8.

Hello everyone, I use the 64-bit version of Linux Mint 8 and I thought I should mention that some parts of Synaptic have been left untranslated for the Dutch language (mainly in the menus). :) Please see the screenshots below to see what I mean: http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4002/4525449905_e24e866...

Linux Mint hield er net even mee op.

Toen ik net op Facebook met de Farmville-applicatie bezig was en tegelijkertijd met mijn koptelefoon via Rhythmbox naar muziek aan het luisteren was, werd mijn beeldscherm zonder waarschuwing vooraf opeens geheel zwart (en viel de muziek ook weg) toen ik daarbij net ook de Open Office tekstverwerker...

Re: Cannot get Rhythmbox to become my default player at all.

I had the same problem a while back with trying to make VLC my default video player . For the life of me I couldn't make it work. Then, one day, quite out of nowhere, all my files started opening in VLC. I hadn't restarted X, hadn't rebooted... To this day I don't know why it works. One thing I did...

Re: [keyboard] Two punctuation keys don't behave as they should.

I had to select "Logitech Cordless Desktop (alternative option)" - might contribute to the problem. But I doubt it, because the problem persists even if I choose other Logitech keyboard models in the list http://linux.seindal.dk/2005/06/04/logitech-cordless-desktop-lx700/ Evan Says: July 4th, 2005 ...

Re: what Theme do you use?

I use Shiki-Mint, the default theme for Linux Mint 7 "Gloria." :) I've got it slightly customised, though - e.g. the overall font type is Verdana, size 8 in monochrome.

Re: [keyboard] Two punctuation keys don't behave as they should.

What, you say it still fails even with the standard US layout? That's rather strange. Yes, I have tried all of the featured US layouts and the problem still persists with each of them. There is a slight possibility that the fact that I could not select my own keyboard model in the list of possible ...
