But thanks man, that is definitely the problem, I will pla...

Re: Mint 17.1 not responding to mouse clicks

No not really any special reason, just thought that it might run a little faster and be a little more stable. That is the advise that I had received anyway. I think I got it pretty much solved and working some of the kinks out now.

that is odd. right click on one of the pictures that you have moved to your computer and check the properties of the actual picture. Is it the correct size? What does it open with ?
