Re: Devoted Linux Mint user happier with latest SolydxK

I recently installed Linux Mint 17.1 Xfce and happen to like it a lot. I have two computers with two drives on each, so I keep looking at different distros. I keep upgrading Debian, now 8.1, gnome classic, as well as the latest Solydxk. I prefer KDE because of the Contact manager and ease of install...

Devoted Linux Mint user happier with latest SolydxK

This was after trying very hard for a longer time to get Debian to work at all, and then to get it working the way I wanted it to work: fine sharing, printer sharing, PIM, etc. With each new version o...

Re: Unable to connect to other laptop running linux

#4 worked for me: "Put bcast first in smb.conf." I have three versions of Linux Mint on two different computers, Main Edition 9 and KDE 10 on one computer and Debian on another. I have been fighting with debian since installing it the first of the year trying to get it to see the other versions of L...

Re: Broadcom STA will not activate

What if you install WICD and got rid of the KDE4 network manager? I will try that and let you know. Thanks.

Broadcom STA will not activate

I installed LinuxMint -gnome version 2 weeks ago, and the Broadcom STA was recognized and installed automatically. Today I installed LinuxMint-KDE-8.0 on another hard drive, and have spent the day trying to get wireless working-to no avail. The Broadcom STA will not activate. The error log is long, ...
