It seemed that data was spread out every xx? many blocks and free space in between. Is this due to linux ntfs driver? I have a screen capture o...

Re: Firefox upgrade jan 7 BROKEN [SOLVED]

NOT rhetorical. Usually on both windows and Linux, When I restart FF, it will install the new version then bring up FF. Which is what it did after the restart. I've never had to restart to upgrade FF before. I think something flacky was going on. I was having trouble with keys not responding at time...

scan to PDF and create form - Typewriter

I want to scan in a paper form and turn it into a PDF form, so I can fill it out, like I was using a typewriter.
It looks like a windows software from Nuance, PDF Converter Professional 6, does this. Is there a Linux GPL that does this?
I tried PDFedit, but could not get it to work, so far.

[Solved] Mint 7->8 (KDE->Gome) No headphones HP/Compaq

I've been running Mint since 6. I wanted to upgrade to Mint 8, tired of waiting for KDE 8, so I did Gnome. All went well so far. I installed the binary video. HOWEVER, like once before the headphone jack does not cut out the speakers or activate the headphones! This was most embarrassing as I was do...

Re: Solution for Atheros AR 5006 / 5007 Cards

The questions is will the new version of madwifi be in a future version soon?
Ubuntu 8.04 is scheduled for April 24, 2008. :?: Mint (??)

I am using (2weeks) a Compaq F756NR with a 5007 card.
The other problem is I can't get graphics except with vesa driver, and therefore can't use VGA connector?

Bea Release vs beta (21)

I take it a re-install is required to see the full flavor of mint (Bea)?
No big deal for me as I use 1 partition for root and one for home and have for years.
