Re: Newest Mate - Vudu won't load movies on FireFox or Chrome

FWIW, I tried a brand-new install of chrome browser on MX Linux and my movies on Vudu played fine. Back on my Linux Mint Mate desktop, I deleted my .config/chromium directory, removed and re-installed chrome browser, but Vudu still won't work on Linux Mate. I also tried Vudu on my Cindy Mint laptop,...

Newest Mate - Vudu won't load movies on FireFox or Chrome

No vudu movies for me anymore. I checked and my Firefox has DRM checked. Gives me a Playback error.

Chrome allows popups for Vudu, but it just sits and spins.

SO....how do I play my stuff? Buy a MS laptop? That's harsh.

Re: Why did you decide to install Linux Mint??

Because Mint is the best out there--this version of Linux just works.

Tried the others, came back to Mint. It is good to be home...

Well folks, it was time for upgrades on two of my laptops (actually 3) and a older desktop. All of them were running Mint except for a really old T42 running Lbuntu. I went to Distrowatch and saw, to my amazement, that MX Linux and Manjaro were at the top. And climbing. So I thought, what the heck. ...

Re: I have a Brother MFCJ430W, It prints but won't scan

Hmmm... me thinks this *might* have something to do with your permissions/entries in /etc/group and/or /etc/passwd. FWIW, the scanner wouldn't work for my HP printer after following HP's instructs sent with the printer (going to their setup site online), so I ended up erasing the original HPLIP, goi...

Monitor acting up in Mate; hardware issue or software?

Hello, lately we've been having issues with the screen. Sometimes it goes to black (but the curser still moves...and sometimes I can actually slide around until I find where the shutdown icon is and shut it down.) Sometimes the screen just wigs out and the pixels are all jumbled. It locks up and I h...

Re: Printing SW stinks after "upgrade" done - LMDE2 Cinnamon

Okay, so I found out the problem was with my print server. For some reason it had lost all of its settings to share the printer, etc. Why does it keep losing the settings? Again, I'd printed before from this laptop to the print server and it was working fine until I upgraded the laptop. ?? Oh well, ...

Printing SW stinks after "upgrade" done - LMDE2 [Solved]

I don't know what happened, but my printing sw can't find my printer, now. After I loaded Cinnamon LMDE2, the printing worked fine - brought it up and found my network printer and printed without a problem... But when I made the mistake of doing an upgrade (one of them being cups), it will no longer...

Hello, I brought up the liveDVD (LMDE Betsy Cinnamon) on my desktop, currently running LMDE1 Cinnamon, to check the hardware. Naturally there was a past issue with the stupid broadcom wireless card and I had to do some tweaking to get it to work under LMDE1. I was surprised when the liveDVD recogniz...

Thanks, I haven't had a chance to get back until now; sorry. I have a really old set up at home...no HD TV, no late model DVD player, etc. A cheap tube TV and an older Magnavox. For a family of computer techies, we're way behind the curve, LOL. Makes no sense, but... we just don't see spending that ...

DeVeDe - created DVD hits digital "wall" every few mins

Hi all, I downloaded an mp4 from Youtube using: youtube-dl <URL_for_Youtube_mp4_video> and wanted to make a DVD of it, so I downloaded DeVeDe and K3b from the repositories. Being totally ignorant of how DVDs, CDs, etc are actually created, especially DVDs for using in a standard DVD player, my first...

simple question: can I assume bluray discs will never work?

Just for fun, I tried to get a Blu-ray movie to work with VLC, but of course I get the UNDF error. I'm guessing it has to do with the decryption. So can I assume that I can forget about getting a purchased blu-ray movie to work on my blu-ray disc player under Linux? Is my only hope to buy something ...

Re: Virtualbox 4.3 installed on 64b, but no opt 4 64b Win7 V

Just went through that exercise with cpuinfo. Apparently, a Lenovo T530 doesn't come with the Virtual Technology already enabled. I had to go into my BIOS and enable it and the VT-R. Now I can see the 64bit options just fine... Thanks, Kim PS: See following for more details: https://forums.virtualbo...

Re: Virtualbox installed but have a couple of questions (4.3

Okay, this is bizarre. I went out to Oracle and pulled down their Debian-Wheezy 64 bit package and reinstalled VB. Still not seeing anything but 32 Bit...so I'm wondering what the heck?

Re: Virtualbox installed but have a couple of questions (4.3

Thanks, but unless the Virtualbox 4.3 under the Software Manager is only for 32 bit machines, I have *no* idea why the version I'm running is only allowing 32bit VMs.

Yes, I'm on a T530 64 bit laptop running a newly upgraded LMDE.
