Re: Howto set screen brightness in Toshiba Satellite T130

Don't know if this will be any help to you. I couldn't get the fn + F? options to work for my Sony Vaio so I set keybindings for xbacklight to super + up/down to adjust my screen brightness. I did something very similar to get my audio to work. If you use openbox: http://crunchbanglinux.org/forums/p...

crunchbang (not xfce) or archbang.

If I felt like really giving e a try I might consider bodhi.

Re: How to downgrade qt4.7 to qt4.6.3?

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install package=version
Where package is the package name, and version is the version of the package you wish to install.

Don't know if that method will work for you in this situation but it is the easiest solution I can think of.

Re: Problems to boot LMDE as Live cd

I'd recommend checking the md5sum of the images before you do anything with them: Gnome 32-bit= daeabb182b016cd62bfced5483441b5a If you have 64-bit or an xfce version find the md5sum by clicking on your version here: http://www.linuxmint.com/download_lmde.php open a terminal in the directory you dow...

Re: Please help with "command line" instructions?

Regardless of whether you entered it wrong or not, I think most people will need a bit more information about what errors occurred to help you out.

If you can post what happened when you ran the command I might be able to offer some advice.

Re: YouTube to MP3?

Theoretically, assuming you own the rights to the video you are converting you can use clive to download the video, mplayer to extract the audio, and vbrfix to fix the length of track because mplayer will probably botch it up. If you know how to create a bash script here is one I use to pull the aud...

Re: Software Manager Password

For future reference you have two unrelated questions in one thread, please put separate issues in separate threads.

The only way I know to not enter your password to use synaptic is to log in as root. Which you shouldn't do.

Re: How to Repair or Uninstall Mint

Well the easiest way to repair mint would be to do a fresh install of it. I would verify the md5sum of the image before installing again. If you want to remove Mint, boot into Ubuntu and delete the files on the partition for mint. Then update grub. Don't reboot your computer after deleting all the f...

Re: What are your top tips for a Newbie?

I think the best thing for a user at any level to master is using google. For instance I want to learn about bash scripting, more specifically for-loops.

I would ask google for: for loop + bash.

Re: Mono or the GIMP?

If you look through your mint menu, how many of the programs do you actually use and how many of the ones you do use have you installed yourself? It's impossible to cater for everyone. This resonates with me, and hopefully with others. How many people truly use only software included with a particu...
