Re: Katya DVD install hangs near end

I have a similar computer running the 64 bit version of Mint 10.

It has a few minor problems running GoogleEarth and I wanted to try it out on a 32 bit system.

I still think the DVD should install correctly.

BTW my new 32 bit system seems to run GEarth much better.

Re: Katya DVD install hangs near end

Sorry, yes MD5 sum of both DVD's was correct. Same for CD that worked. Remember 2 DVD's 1 RC and 1 final, burnt at different times both hung at the same place.

Edit: Computer has 4GB RAM

Very strange to me.

Katya DVD install hangs near end

I have tried to install Katya 32 bit on my experimental machine with both the RC candidate and Final release. I have formatted the / and /home partitions. The installation hangs at the download and install of language packs. This is right at the end. The only way to recover is a hard reset. As Grub ...

Re: No network connection

I have found that if you right click on the network icon after booting and disable networking for about 30 seconds then re enable it, a connection will be made.

My motherboard is Asus M4A785TD-EVO

Firefox change behaviour in Mint 9

Has anybody noticed the following change of behaviour in Firefox with Mint 9 Gnome. If you open Firefox from a link in an Email (I use Thunderbird) it becomes the active window but if it is already open a new link opens a new tab but Firefox does not become the active window? I have found this true ...

I have just tried xsane using the RC of 64 bit Isadora. It works perfectly.
Good enough for me! :D

Re: xsane problem in Helena

Yes I thought it was a bug but xsane worked perfectly in Ubuntu 9.10.

I think it has something to do with xsane not being part of a basic install in Helena but included in 9.10.

You have to install xsane from the repositories in Helena. I think the problem lies there.

xsane problem in Helena

Yesterday I needed to use xsane urgently on my Mint 8 computer. It is not installed by default but easy from Software Manager. All seemed well until I tried to select a photo to scan from the preview. It was impossible to drag the scan area although the mouse pointer changed correctly. I am familiar...

Re: Considerations before you install

When I discovered Linux Mint I installed Gloria on a test machine with two SATA drives. An 80GB one that I set up with a 15GB partition set as / and the rest unallocated space and a small swap partition. The second drive is 120GB and I set this as /home with another small swap partition. I intended ...

Re: Install partitioner not showing all drives

I have the same problem with LM8 RC1 and the final release and have reported a bug on launchpad. Number 488306 I have been using a two drive setup for ages with no problems. I have mainly been using Ubuntu but have also tried many other distros. All without problems. Even Ubuntu 9.10 was happy with ...

Re: Stickey keys status applet

I see the button to open the accessibility programs/applets has appeared in the task bar. This is welcome because you can turn them off if someone else is using your computer. Previously if I tried to add this button it was not visible. EDIT: This button has gone again and when I tried to put it bac...

Re: gparted failure with Helena live install

Normally I can do this but the install version from the live CD does not give a drop down list and only shows the one disk. That is the one that I mount as /home and is the only one seen. Gparted on Mint 7 install worked perfectly. Also from my installation of Mint 7 I can see both disks and my boot...

Re: Stickey keys status applet

Unfortunately the applet you are suggesting only opens up the accessibility panel which will allow you to change the features you use. It gives no indication of the actual state of the keys. It also does not actually show itś own place on the panel. :-) The first time I tried that I added it about 5...

Stickey keys status applet

Due to a stroke I have the use of only one arm and need to use Sticky keys. One thing that I would really like is a small applet in the taskbar to show which sticky keys are activated. If you have no visual feedback when using sticky keys you often get some VERY STRANGE effects happening. Sometimes ...
