Re: flash issues with Mint

Flash has, and always will be, the big reason why Linux will not be as successful as Mac and Windows. Some people would like an alternative to the aforementioned OSes, but unless you like spending hours trying to figure out something that should (IMHO) work out of the box, you're not going to be hap...

Re: Helena made YouTube and other Flash choppy.

You adjusted the output volume and it fixed the choppiness of Flash videos? That's odd, but I'll try that tonight. Did you just adjust the speaker icon in the bottom panel, or did you go through Pulse?

Re: Helena made YouTube and other Flash choppy.

Ok, I've reinstalled Gloria and it does the same thing! What the heck? It was working fine prior to installing Helena. Oh well. I've reinstalled Helena and will hope I can get some help here or that an update will resolve my issue. :-(

Re: Sound problems (sound crackling) in Helena

Hmmm, it seems I'm not the only one who thought Gloria ran superbly while Helena is a bit too premature. I'm installing Gloria today as it worked perfectly.

Helena made YouTube and other Flash choppy.

Hi there, So after having issues with Ubuntu I fell in love with Mint 7 because everything worked out of the box. I was running it for months without a hitch and decided to do a fresh install of Helena. Well, after getting everything installed I realized that I can no longer play Flash videos (YouTu...

Well, I reinstalled Mint 8 and everything went smooth this time. Admins, please delete this thread. Still having YouTube issues, but I'll open another thread on that.

Ugh, YouTube videos are playing slower then molasses in January. Man, it seems Gloria was the only distro that really worked on my machine. No wonder why people end up giving up and going back to Windows. :-(

Re: Crash error after install, but works. Am I safe?

Rich Roast, thanks for looking at my issue, it's greatly appreciated!!! I'll see if I can dig up the installation logs and post them here for my piece of mind. But what you said has assured me to just continue forward if everything seems to be working. Thanks again!

Cheers,

Sorry about the long post, but I have no idea I'm looking at. But believe me, I'm very thankful for people who are infinitely smarter then I am when it comes to stuff like this. Without people like you, I'd still be running Windows.

I found the Log File Viewer, but there are just a bunch of different file listings on the right. What should I be looking for?

Hi there, So I decided to do a fresh install of Mint 8 (been runnin' Mint 7 for months). Anyway, the installation was almost done when I got an error saying something to the effect of "installation has crashed" and it listed some logs to post in the forum.

Thanks! I think that did it. Installing now. Hopefully I can just switch between Gnome and XFCE by logging out and changing my sessions like I could in Ubuntu. Thanks again!

Re: Is XFCE for me?

Isn't there a way to install XFCE through Gnome? I think I did it in Ubuntu at one point and I needed to go into the repositories. Any links/info for installing XFCE? I'd like to have the choice of going from Gnome to XFCE.

Is XFCE for me?

So, I've toyed with Linux, first using Ubuntu but I really fell in love with it when I started to use Linux Mint. Everything worked quite well. However, as of late I'm wishing the OS was a bit snappier. So, I'm thinking I should give XFCE a try. First of all, is there that much of a difference when ...
