Re: Problems with libdvdcss, other codecs and ripping apps..

Just used the method in the link and it worked just fine, but I had to use Synaptic rather than apt-get, which failed, I have no idea why, but it is now working. Thanks heaps for the link I've been trying for days to get Handbrake working in LM 13 :) This method worked: 1) in terminal type the follo...

Re: Upgraded LM12 to LM13 Cinnamon icons are the old LM12

No I did a complete fresh install, though I did restore my data into my home directory from the backup I took. Certainly something could have "come back" and caused the problem, but I have no idea what. There is no hidden cinnamon folder in the home folder or in the .config folder or in /etc, well a...

Re: Upgraded LM12 to LM13 Cinnamon icons are the old LM12

Thanks for the suggestion, I have tried that to no avail. I should have explained myself more clearly. In LM12 the main menu icons had, for example, the cinnamon settings icon as a screw driver and a spanner crossed, in LM13 the Cinnamon Settings icon was a set of gears. Now after the upgrade to LM1...

Upgraded LM12 to LM13 Cinnamon icons are the old LM12

I followed the recommended procedure to upgrade by backing up my LM12 programs and my data, did a clean install of LM13 then updated LM13 and then restored my programs and data. All went perfectly except for the menu icons in LM13, they are the old LM12 icons. How can I get the LM13 icons installed?...

The NAS uses samba and it can be seen from Elyssa and I can copy both files and folders to it, but I can not copy folders from the NAS to my home folder.

Re: OpenSuse 10.3: How does it compare to LinuxMint?

I have been using LM Daryna for a while, since the beta 21 was released and have installed the final version Main edition on a test hdd. I have previously used Opensuse 10.3 on my AMD 64 as it worked well on the 64 bit machine which is my main work computer. After putting LM through its paces on the...

Hi Guys, I've just installed Daryna Main edition and used Envy to install the nvidia drivers on my Dell Inspiron 8600. Daryna is working beautifully including the 3D desktop, except that all windows have lost their title-bars. Has anyone an idea on how I could fix this? I have tried to change the wi...

Excessive hard disk accessing on laptop

I read the article on Ubuntu at http://www.theinquirer.net/gb/inquirer/news/2007/10/31/ubuntu-eats-lappy-hard-drive which alerted me to the amount of accesses happening on my Dell Inspiron 8600. I chased round the web and found this reference http://ubuntudemon.wordpress.com/2007/10/26/laptop-hardri...
