Re: nvidia/intel issue (another one)

UPDATE After another try to install nvidia-346, via Driver Manager, it installed successfully. Now everything seems working good. I can switch from Intel to nvidia and vice-versa. But I still don't have openCL working with my photo processing software. Maybe that will be to another thread. I will m...

[SOLVED] nvidia/intel issue (another one)

In the beginning, I had a (better) working system, with driver nvidia-331 (with ubuntu-x-swat ppa) and Bumblebee. But as usual, with each update, the OpenCL libraries got broken and I was unable to use it with my photo handling software. Every time I manage to fix it until one last time. After a whi...

Re: truecrypt

TrueCrypt is the best, in my opinion, cross-platform encryption software.
Easy to use and fast.
Just take a look at the documentation (http://www.truecrypt.org/docs/), specially the "Creating New Volumes" chapter.

Installation with a pre-existing /home partition

In my 6 years-old laptop I have LM11 installed with a partition scheme with a separated /home partition. I was not thinking to upgrade to LM12 because, I thought, of the bigger hardware demands. But one day, after creating a live usb flash drive, I gave it a try and saw that the performance wasn't t...

Re: LMDE vs LM10

"You may need to be prepared to manually install drivers for your hardware"

You can imagine that those actions could be a really head-hake.

Nevertheless I'm very temped.

But, really, why should I change to LMDE, besides the rolling side?

Re: PPA OpenOffice - Broken Packages

@whvann08:
I've already tried to find the broken packages with synaptic, but it doesn't return anything.

@vincent
You're right, I'm working with Scribbler's PPA and upgrading from 3.2.0 to 3.2.1.
It's absolutly necessary to upgrade the kernel?

Re: CUPS server error

You were right altair4, I had the cupsd.conf empty. Issued: sudo cp /etc/cups/cupsd.conf.default /etc/cups/cupsd.conf sudo /etc/init.d/cups restart and problem solved. But still I wonder why cupsd.conf had gone empty? Thank you all for the help. Once again Mint forum proved to have valuable members.
