Re: Need help with USB installation errors

Some usb sticks have a little tab on the side that slides up and down. Try sliding it in the other direction.

Re: Problems with update manager

I had the same issue with a Toshiba netbook running Maya, yesterday. This fix worked perfectly and updates are now running smoothly. Thanks, Xenopeek! Maybe this should be sticky?

Large volume icon flashing

In Mint 13 Maya Mate there is a large volume icon flashing on the bottom half of the screen every few seconds. I dont think it was there before I installed audacity, but uninstalling audacity didnt make it go away. Help?

Re: KISS Kindle for Linux

Will Calibre download books from the kindle cloud?
I dont have a kindle either, so what is needed is a way to download the books from the kindle cloud to a linux pc. Then calibre can be used as a reader. But we need to get them into the computer first.

Yes. This is why my desktop ended up in the closet. :( Im thinking of setting it back up next to the even older stereo system and keeping it offline. It could get loud.
