Re: K9 copy ceased to run after update

Pjotr, I feel you are arguing against yourself here. Software does not die; if it still works reliably it still lives. The problem is that there are too many people who do not understand what change for the sake of change is, particularly amongst the young and inexperienced, and that change in compl...

Re: K9 copy ceased to run after update

Hi richyrich,

thanks for the info. That explains why I am not able to get it to run in Maya LTS version after downloading and installing it again from that source. So it seems the LTS is not now in reality the fully long-term supported version? !!!

Re: K9 copy ceased to run after update

Hi phd21, I have tried your suggestions, and it does allow k9copy to be installed and updated; however it still will not run in the current updated version of Linux Mint LTS version Maya 13, and this is clearly due to certain dependences having been changed in that last update. That is why although ...

Re: module ndiswrapper not found

Since posting this I have discovered that the latest version of Puppy Linux deals with older wireless cards seamlessly. I could not believe it, with all the difficulty which exists with most Linux distros. With the latest version your wireless card is detected automatically and it is not necessary t...

Re: K9 copy ceased to run after update

Hi Pjotr, thank you for your reply. I have installed Xfburn and tried it but it seems that you do not understand the distinct difference between Xfburn and k9copy? They are nowhere near functionally the same. Xfburn is a utility like Brasero or K3b, solely for writing disks on a simplistic basis. Xf...

Re: K9 copy ceased to run after update

Thanks Pjotr, I will try that; however the issue really is why the latest update has caused K9copy not to run when it was running perfectly before the update. I suspect it is another example of a change to a minor item of SW in the update which now affects the compatibility of various applications w...

K9 copy ceased to run after update

After installing the latest updates suddenly I have discovered that k9 copy stopped working. It worked perfectly without any problem prior to the update. I have tried re-installing it but it still does not run. When I select it from the main menu it does not run at all and nothing happens. I have no...

Re: Two updates today (LTS version)

I have now discovered a solution for this. For some reason the icons normally on the right do not need the same selection of a "Move" function to move them back to their normal position. You just need to click and drag them. If you get them back to their normal positions you can then move ...

Two updates today (LTS version)

After I installed the first of the two updates today onto my Linux Mint Mate Maya 13 LTS version, I have lost the main menu and cannot seem to get it back. I also lost the displaying of open windows icons on the panel. Has anyone else had this problem, and what do you need to do to get it back please?

Re: Problem with NTSC original video files SOLVED

After installing Handbrake I was able to process these files successfully using it. However the present version of Handbrake does not allow output files to produced as mpeg2 even if the input is mpeg2. It only allows the output of mpeg4 files, so there is a significant amount of degradation of the r...

Re: Problem with NTSC original video files

I have now discovered that what I needed to enter was ""sudo apt-get install handbrake-gtk". Handbrake has thus now installed OK. I will report back when I see whther this application can solve the display restriction problem.

Hi txba516, Thanks for your reply. No I have not been able to try Handbrake, although I have attempted to do so; I have found difficulty in installing it to Linux MInt, mainly because it is not on the approved list of apps in the Package Manager. I have even found difficulty understanding quite what...

I wonder whether anyone can help me please. I have a number of NTSC video files, which I have successfully converted to PAL, which is what I need since I live in the EU. However, there seems to be something corrupted in these NTSC files, perhaps with the frame flag? The original NTSC files are impos...

Thanks for that information. However, I must take issue with "...new versions of Linux Mint developed software like Cinnamon, MATE, and the Mint tools will not be available on Linux Mint 13. For the remainder of its support period, Linux Mint 13 only receives updates for security issues." ...

Hi Altair4, Thanks for your further reply.

Re: How to copy files from one hard drive to another? SOLVED

Hi Altair4, Thank you for your help, but with all due respect I don't agree that this problem is about "the way in which Linux works" as you suggest. It is in fact about introduced limitations of Ubuntu and thus Mint. Other flavours of Linux do not have the same problems, but they do not h...
