This happens to me on the Live cd as well before I actually install it on the hard drive. I can try with the latest Celena live cd and let you know what I get. I'm not familiar with the firewall in KDE but I can check. And yeah, the workaround that I have is inconsitent with all of this. I can insta...

Still no luck. If I had the power cable to my wired linksys router, I'd try it on that router and see what happens but since I can't power the thing, I'm stuck there.

Thank you.

Overkill I say too. I like having a KDE edition and a GNOME edition. If you want other window managers have editions for them too but don't pile everything into one disc, what is the point? Are there really that many people out there who run multiple window managers? If so, why do you run multiple w...

Re: No network connection

I know everything - modem, router, network cable - is OK because WinXP works fine. I assume this means you are dual-booting Mint with Windows XP? I would check the driver and make sure Mint still has the correct driver in for the LAN. For instance the first two times I installed Mint on my dual-boo...

There was an interview with the head of SCO on digg the other day and was quite an interesting read because the guy made no bones about wanting to put an end to the whole Linux community. I can't help but thing that in twenty years we'll read or watch about how miserable that guy's life has been sin...

The end user needs an easy way to get security updates and add new features if they want/need them. I voted to keep it in. If there were a Mint tool to do security updates and Add/Remove like Ubuntu has then that would work. I understand the desire to keep some things (kernel) at a constant version ...

I for one like the mint leaf logo and the lack of a mascot.

I really appreciate anything anyone can help me out with on this. As I said I've posted it in the Ubuntu forums when I was fighting Feisty Fawn with this issue and couldn't get anywhere and I'd love to actually fix it this time instead of dealing with the work around.

Thank you.

I have two Windows notebooks that use the wireless and/or wired and they have no problem (one I run Ubuntu LiveCD on from time to time with no problems). My Mint box is a dual boot with Windows and I have the MAC address setup in the router to always give it a static 192.168.23.101 address. This is ...

Hello! Thank you for helping me! I edited the two files resolv.conf and dhclient.conf and added the OpenDNS (I love the open DNS service) to both files, saved the files, and rebooted. (OpenDNS settings on in my router as well). After restarting I notice the Adept icon in the tray and it has the Caut...

Similarly I have a Radeon 9250 and with the livecd it was detected as a 9200 and used the "legacy" driver.

Once installed Mint now uses a Mesa driver.

I have no idea why.

internet connectivity issue

I hope this hasn't been posted elsewhere, I did do a few searches and nothing came up. I have a fresh install of Linux Mint Cassandra KDE Community Edition and I'm having problems getting to websites. This is a dual boot system with Windows XP living on a separate physical disk. I have a D-Link DI-6...
