Re: Mint 10 + Broadcom Wlan

This guy here has a Broadcom wireless adapter in his computer and found a way to make it work. Here is the fix for him. Maybe it will work for you as well.

Re: Bypass default-KVM settings for resolution?

I don't use KVM, although I was reading a blog that I have started reading from a guy who does a lot of stuff with Linux. He has this on KVM and how to change the default resolution. Hopefully it will fix your issue.

Re: Linux Mint 10 and wireless

I too have a wireless issue, albeit a minor one. With past version of Mint the wireless would launch at boot up. Now with Julia it doesn't. I have to manually start it. Is there something I have to configure to get it to launch automatically? In the NetworkManager, in the config of your wireless, t...

Re: Linux Mint 10 won't reconnect

The reason it takes a minute or so after you suspend or sleep is because the adapter has to be woken up, then it has to acquire the signal again and then go through the process of getting an IP etc. No way to speed that up in this situation.

Re: Installation question regarding partition selection

First, you only need 1 swap file. Doesn't matter how many different Linux flavors you run, you just need one swap. To associate it in the manual partitioning phase, just highlight it and click on change and then leave it as it is, it will then use that swap for it's swap space. As for where you shou...

Re: How to create .iso from CD ?

FYI, an .img file is the same as an .iso file, so is .nrg and several others. The different file endings are just from different programs. I'm not sure who owns the .img but the .nrg is Nero Burning ROM program. The .iso is the international standard file name for an image file. So, if you have an ....

While I myself am no longer a complete newbie to Mint, the thing that I don't think anyone here has said is this, DO NOT GIVE UP If you don't give up, and you do what the rest of the posts here say, you will do fine with Mint and Linux in general. You will learn a lot and you will be frustrated at t...

Re: How to create .iso from CD ?

Well, in Brasero, once you open it, click on Disk Copy, and when it comes up change the "Select Disk To Burn To" to "Image File", change the file name from Brasero.iso to whatyouwanttocallit.iso.

Then, click create image. There you go. :D

Re: wonky wireless

Have you ran a ping test to see if you are losing packets? That can have a big influence on your speeds and it would be very intermittent. I had that problem a few years back when I decided to upgrade the firmware of my router. When pushed it would start losing packets but that was the only time it ...

Another way to do it is to click the little + sign that you see that says Details. When you do it gives you the option to have it remember your password and to work when you log in to your desktop and to stay working until you log off. THEN you have the security you want without the constant need to...
