Re: HD6850 and Mint 11 x64

A reinstall produced the same result. Furthermore, installs of OpenSuse, Fedora, and Mageia also had the same issue. Trying most recent alpha/milestone versions did not change that, and from what I have read on discussion forums, the support for the 6K series is more or less non-existent right now. ...

Re: HD6850 and Mint 11 x64

I made an error in my original post: the fact is that I cannot log into the desktop at all. I just get a forever-circling, well, circle. Nothing happens. The same deal when trying to log in via suggested recovery mode.

[SOLVED] HD6850 and Mint 11 x64

I installed Mint 11 x64 on my HP Pavilion HPE-515sc. When it loads the logon screen, the view is split in the middle (or so) and the left side is on the right and vice versa. In other words, the logon window is on the right side of the screen, and when I move the mouse cursor past the right-hand edg...

Re: New preview release of 64-bit Flash available!

Could someone advise the less knowledgeable among us (such as myself) as to how to replace the default Flash component in Mint 9 x64 with the Adobe 64-bit Square? The page at Adobe says to just extract the .so file and put it in the Firefox plugins folder. So I dropped it in /usr/lib64/firefox/plugi...

[Solved] Find the passphrase for encrypted home partition

During installation of Mint 9 KDE64, I chose to encrypt my home partition for security purposes. Based on what I had read beforehand, I was expecting the system to pop up a dialog window on my first login and tell me the passphrase (or key of some kind) that would be necessary in order to access the...

Monitor goes to sleep during boot

I am a new user of KDE 9 x64. I am having an issue with the monitor going to sleep during boot-up and staying asleep ("no signal") until I blindly enter my password, wait for it to log my account in, hit ctrl-alt-del and enter (defaults to logout), and then when it goes back to the login screen, the...

Re: Static internal IP for Synergy?

Thank you for your advice! Remoulder, I set the ethernet connection as per your instructions. This made Synergy work wonderfully. Unfortunately, for some reason, it cut out the Internet connection connection for both machines. I made sure the gateway and subnet addresses were correct. I can only get...

[SOLVED] Static internal IP for Synergy?

After much trial and error I managed to get Synergy working with my Mac Mini and my Mint 8 x64. However, I am using IP addresses to identify the machines, as opposed to just hostnames, because that was the recommended method. Every time I reboot the router or the computers (I have 3 comps networked ...

Re: Dual Boot - Linux Mint and Windows 7

I'm pretty sure it wasn't an error from my part, I did nothing out of the ordinary, so I wonder what happened? Not sure... I would recommend that you partition the whole drive (as in, plan the partitions and set them, not leaving unclaimed space) before reinstalling Windows. Not only should it stop...

Re: Dual Boot - Linux Mint and Windows 7

I'm just not seeing the Windows system partition in your partition list. All I see is a recovery partition and a boot partition... Maybe try sudo fdisk -l to see if that list concurs with what you've posted. I myself am very new to dualbooting Windows and Linux, so take whatever I say with a grain o...

I think Proxima might be right. When I tried Do the last time I wasn't using Compiz... I am using it now, and just installed Do; so far it's working just fine. And so is AWN, which is just incredible, especially with the Stacks plugin..

Re: Gnome-do anyone?

I can't speak for Xfce, but I've tried Do once on Mint, and it crashed the system. I haven't touched it since... A lot of people seem to like it, but I'm just wary of trying it again.

Furthermore, while I like to dabble in graphics, I'm not qualified to post entries for this contest. I did want to say though, I don't think this contest being on two sites, or having a monetary rewar...

Re: Dual Boot - Linux Mint and Windows 7

If I understood you correctly, you originally had Vista on drive C, which you then upgraded to Windows 7. But as often is the case with an "upgrade", it didn't work too well, so you did a clean (custom) install on drive/partition E. So now you have a messed up Windows 7 on drive C, and a "good" inst...
