Re: Installing Mint on Acer Chromebook C720P

thanks, I installed Mint Mate on usb with etcher, but trying to boot up chromebook using CTRL + L I couldn't get to bios. is there another way?
Etcher acted like it installed iso properly, but when trying to boot it on another laptop, it wouldn't recognize it.

Re: Installing Mint on Acer Chromebook C720P

By doing that I wouldn't have to go into developer mode and use Crouton?

What is the best app for burning iso to usb?

reboot twice for internet connection

Ever since I upgraded to 18.3 Cinnamon I've noticed that almost everytime I boot up I have no internet connection. Then I reboot and its connected. Why? does this have to do with the upgrade? I used to do clean installs and maybe I should have done that this time. Any ideas?

Copying DVDs with K3b or Brasero not workiing

I'm running Mint 18.2 KDE.

For the first time in many years I can't get K3b to copy dvds. I thought I installed all the codecs. But it doesn't work.

What is needed to copy dvds with K3b or Brasero?

Thank you. It works perfectly. :)

I'll may remove Dragon player, VLC should be the default media player for Mint.

That's what I thought, but no. Unless it's hidden somewhere.

How to set vlc player as default

I'm running Mint 18.1 KDE

How do I set vlc as default media player? I see no app to set this up.

How to set any app as the default?

I insert a DVD and I don't see it to right click and change the default. I used to be able to do this.

Mint 18.1 hangs on shutdown

For some reason Mint 18.1 Cinnamon will hang at shutdown. In 8 years of using Mint this never happened. What could cause this?

Thanks, It's about time that they dropped 32 bit. I've run Google Chrome before and didn't get that message. I guess if I don't need to watch Netflix on this laptop, i can remove Google Chrome and install Chromium instead.

Re: setting up xfdashboard

Thanks, I have both installed but its not that good. Cinnamon desktop has a nice hot corner program, too bad you can't use it in Xfce.

But it's not that important, so I'll probably won't use it. One day someone will develop a good one. :)
