Re: lbreakout2 game

Thank you both. Something worked, because I can open it again. And the high scores had gotten out of hand anyway, kind of nice to start over.

lbreakout2 game (SOLVED)

I enjoy lbreakout2, but for the last few days it won't load when I try to open it. Starts to open, then closes. Worked fine up until a few days ago, and I have not changed anything, so do not know why it quit. I have tried completely removing it and re-installing, but it did not help. I am running M...

Adobe Flash plugin

I am having trouble with it. Disabled by default right now because I still have version 24.0. Want to get it updated so I quit getting error messages, but keep running into problems. When I try to update straight from Adobe with the APT package, I'm told "Unknown channel 'rosa-partner' The channel '...

Game controller

I couldn't figure out a better place for this, so I will put it here. Can anyone suggest a good game controller, like a PS3 controller or something, for Linux Mint? I have a Logitech controller that I bought years ago, but have never been able to get working on Linux. But I would like to get a new o...

Re: New Ransomware on Mac

Apart from that: no worries. This particular incident concerns only the Mac version, and on top of that only the Mac version which was downloaded straight from the Transmission website.: Thanks for the info. I thought that was probably the case, but I wanted to double-check. The article that I saw ...

New Ransomware on Mac

I just read an article announcing that there has been a ransomware attack on Mac computers, spread through Transmission. I have used Transmission to download several torrents over the last few days. I know that Linux is not Apple, but they do have similarities. Would a fresh back-up of my system be ...

Hey, cecilieaux, I may have found a solution for you.

Re: Steam on a new computer

I am having the same problem. I installed 17.3 Cinnamon this morning, and immediately installed the Steam launcher from the software manager. Shows up fine in my menu, but nothing happens when I click on it. Nothing opens. Can sign in on the Steam web site, but cannot get the client to open. Steam o...

(SOLVED) Single click in Mint 17.3?

I thought that I had checked all of the settings, but I am unable to find where to turn off the double-click for files. I prefer to single-click to open files, folders, etc. But I cannot locate the setting.

All help for a hopeless case would be appreciated.

Re: Data Partition will not mount

dev/sda3 is the partition that will not mount. sda4 will mount just fine, but that is going to be a Windows install pretty soon.

Re: Civilization V is black when I open it

Thank you. Will try that.

If that fails, I have also (for various reasons) broken down and decided that I need a Windows partition on my machine.

Re: Cannot see partitions in folder tree

I did a full install. Had used GParted in live session to set up partitions, as doing the partitions during the install was formatting them incarrectly.

Re: Boot issue on new computer

Got it up and running. Huge thanks to gold_finger and austin.texas for giving a hand to someone who should really still be using Windows, since I cannot seem to do GNU/Linux properly on my own.
