Re: Configuring VPN in Network-Manager

Who told you to uninstall the network manager??

For VPN, you need to install the additional package for the network manager.

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install network-manager-openvpn
After the installation, you just add another connection for OpenVPN.

Re: Unable to install Mint 17.1 as a dual boot with Win7

Any specs on the computer you are installing? Also, try burning the iso again, as it might be a bad burn. Next, jus to be sure it is bootable, boot the DVD to another computer and see it is good.

Re: Help with overheating?

HHmm.. for overheating, the first thing I'll look out is to clean the fans and grill. No matter how you control/tweak the fans, if they can't properly circulate the air, you'll have temperature problems.

Re: How to launch installed packages

Most application installed from the software won't add any icon to the desktop. They probably be only on the Mint Menu so look for the application name in there.

Or is it also missing on the Mint Menu? What application did you installed?

Re: Internal HDD partition is mounted as a removable device?

Hi everyone, I've just installed Mint on a new mSATA drive, so now I can use my internal HDD for data storage. I partitoned the data drive with one massive ext4 partition, and let the Disks utility handle the mounting. Unfortunately, it mounts it as a removable device. This is not good! Looking in ...

Re: KMix alternative for Cinnamon?

I'm not on Mint at the moment. Is "alsamixer" still installed on Mint?
You can try opening it from the terminal.

Code: Select all

alsamixer
I remember you can have settings there that you can increase the pre-amp of the sound output. Worth a try I think.

Haven't used it that feature before since I don't need increase volume. However if this is about watching a movie you can try VLC which can amplify the volume upto 200%.

Re: unresponsive script

Do you have any add-ons installed for firefox?
Also, this error I think is common on heavily updating websites and happens when your browser is opened to long periods without you refreshing the page. I get this error often (not everyday but i certainly notice it).

Re: cinnamon processor usage

If you don't have fancy graphics drivers like cuda or radeon, the default kernel drivers for intel chipsets should do just fine.

Let's see who's eating processes when your computer is idle, run top from the terminal.

Why did you use terminal? The GUI is not enough?

Have you tried to login the user that you created? From the terminal:

Re: apt and config file modifications - /etc/bash.bashrc

From what I've read so far about apt (dpkg), when it detects a change it is suppose to ask which file to keep. Does this mean that you could potentially lose modifications? Yes. It asks if what you want to keep, but it won't backup anything for you. With apt, do you need to open up another console ...
