End of Rope?

I have to say this is surprising. I hope that one of the developers / maintainers will comment -- just for my edification. I would not have expected a simple bungled application to mess itself up so permanently that it's impossible to get it to run again! That's the sort of thing I'd be less surpris...

Anyway, I'm confusled. I don't know why it's apparently in the Cassandra repository and NOT in the Celena repository, when it seems to have been included in the Celena image. From what I can gather the celena repository doesn't mirror the cassandra repository and only contains files that are unique...

mint-sunbird? whats the differance between that and whats in the ubuntu repository? After I borked it (Sunbird wouldn't start any more.) by trying to equilibrate the data files on Linux Mint with those on Vista, I went to Synaptic to remove Sunbird. When I searched for "sunbird" I got "mint-sunbird...

More weirdness. I just ran the installer. I got the message that the package was already installed. I reinstalled it anyway. But the application still won't start.

This is odd. Am I going to have to reinstall the OS?

Yeah, that's really odd. That download comes from the linuxmint repository, cassandra distribution. I'm running a clean Celena installation, and it lists http://www.linuxmint.com/repository/celena/, among others.

I'm confused. Shouldn't the Sunbird package be included in the Celena repository?

You can redowload it from here and double click to install. http://linuxmint.com/repository/cassandra/sunbird-mint_0.6a1_i386.deb I'm downloading it now. Thank you. I wonder why synaptic didn't offer it from the repository? I'll check the settings, but it should offer it, right? I'm running Celena.

Mint-Sunbird? Did I make a boo-boo?

Okay. I was fiddling around trying to synchronize Sunbird between a Vista system and a Linux Mint system using openssh-server on the Linux box and WinSCP on the Vista box. I should have just used an .ics file, but I got greedy because that doesn't get the configuration across, just the data. Well, S...

Very Nice Release

Thanks, Clem and company. I've examined Linux distributions and some BSDs on occasion over the years just to see at what point it was going to be convenient for me to switch from closed source. It has always been possible, but never very convenient until fairly recently. Actually, some Linux distrib...

Ignore Me

I'm a moron. I guess the connection to the server was just being sporadic yesterday. Now the dictionary doesn't at all, no matter what desktop environment it's running in. Apparently NOT a problem with Beryl. Problem is with End lUser.

dictionary (panel applet) not working with Beryl / Emerald

I really like the handy little dictionary panel applet. But, now that I've started using Beryl the applet no longer responds to input. At first I couldn't even click in the panel field and enter a word. I figured it might have something to do with prevention of focus stealing, so I went in to Beryl ...

Sorry I didn't see this sooner. This was something that irked me, too. There are several useful items that I like included on the panel that don't behave themselves when you choose a non-bitmapped background color and adjust the transparency. You can manually edit some .rc files in a way that, appar...

Can't Seem to Establish an Account at the Software Portal

I've been trying for about 30 minutes to set up an account at the software portal. I got the message that says the account information has been sent to my e-mail address, but I'm not receiving anything there. I tried to reset the account, got the same message, and still got nothing in the e-mail acc...

best guess would be a fryer holder or to hold something while it's boiling.... That's a possibility, but I would think the metal part of the handle would be a little longer to keep the wood (and hand) away from the fryer/boiler. Hey Porcorosso, maybe it has something to do with cracking walnuts . :...

Yup. From the sound of it your wife's system is running WinXP Home, which has only "simple file sharing" or sharing that just uses a sort of anonymous setup for sharing. Not sure how to make that Windows paradigm work with Linux, though logging on as an admin in Safe Mode might get your wife more ch...

Thanks. It's nice to be here. I'm really enjoying this distribution and hoping it catches on with the masses.
