Re: GNOME 3 in Mint 11

rather than start a new topic, since my question is about gnome 3, i was just wondering if it's at a state now where I could feasibly just download and install mint 11 and then "apt-get install gnome 3" .. (over simplified i accept but you get what i mean :)) i tried gnome 3 with fedora 15 and i hav...

going round in circles trying to get flash working in V6 KDE

Ok, i've returned to linux after a couple of years so i'm still kind of finding my linux feet again somewhat. i'm trying to get flash working in firefox and not really getting anywhere and i'm starting to get a bit stumped.

1440x990 seems impossible to attain on KDE

I have an Nvidia 7300LE graphics cards and have tried Mandriva, Kubuntu and Linux Mint KDE and nothing works. if i use a non-kde version then i can get 1440x990 with absolutely no problems whatsoever. the x-server always offers me the maximum resolution of 1360x768 for what it's worth, when I tried ...

Re: Linux Mint 5 Elyssa RC2 (BETA 048) is out!

I was going to download and test it out but I think Flash 10 beta is a horrible idea. In the short span of one day I found that cbs wouldn't go full screen and the bbc videos wouldn't play. Why was this included? Yes, Flash 10 is to buggy. All of my Firefox crashes have been related to Flash 10. i ...

Re: Linux Mint 5 Elyssa - BETA 032 is out!

what is confusing me is that in synaptic, it says that i have flashplayer-nonfree, flashplugin-nonfree and libflashsupport all installed. if i navigate to a site that needs the flash plugin, i get the "install missing plugin button" so i click it. it goes through the installation process, i restart ...

i've just done a completely fresh install and at the moment, i'm finding it very good indeed :) one thing i did find though, when i wanted to access the "login window" option to set an automatic login it took absolutely forever to load it up. i did it eventually, but it took a good 2 minutes to load...

Re: Got an Nvidia 7300 LE and really confused.

i've actually solved it using the "brute force" method ..

i re-formatted and re-installed daryna again and it's working fine now - proper resolution and everything. i can only guess my previous attempt didn't work 100%.

cheers for your help though ..

Got an Nvidia 7300 LE and really confused.

i really don't know what's going on here because it just doesn't seem to want to set any sort of decent resolution. i only re-installed daryna yesterday after re-formatting back from Hardy Heron and i did the "restricted drivers manager" bit where I enabled the NVidia drivers and rebooted, but the r...
