Re: Linux Mint 14 RC

The only issue i've noticed with LM14 is with the screen recorders i use. Videos made with gtk-recordmydesktop have sound which is very slow and deep, regardless of what i set the FPS to be. Videos made by Kazam contain weird colours and bars as well. Both worked fine on Linux Mint 13 :? Kazam also ...

Re: convert .wmv to .mp4

You could also maybe check out Transmageddon - http://www.linuxrising.org/index.html

or Arista Transcoder - http://www.transcoder.org/

I think both are available in Linux Mint.

Re: Install as dual boot now and delete Windows later?

Here's a link to a little tutorial i made about removing Windows from a dual-boot setup.
It's over 2 years old but i'm sure most of it, still applies to recent Linux Mint versions.

Might give you a better understanding of what you will need to do.

Re: Kazam Screencaster

I've also had this error. I've tried the unstable version from the PPA but still get the same error.

I don't know what is causing the error to occur.

If your referring to the Jockey program not being available, you can always just open the Synaptic Package Manager and install the nvidia-current package along with it's dependencies.

[Cinnamon] network manager applet

Recently switched from MATE to Cinnamon 8) I've noticed that the Network Manager applet and window do not provide a way for me easily import my openVPN configs. For example in the old Gnome 2 version, there was a import option which would automatically fill out all the required fields after i import...

Re: Grub Opening page and changing Boot Order

Here's a program which i think will allow you change the GRUB2 bootloader - http://www.webupd8.org/2012/09/grub-cus ... eased.html

I haven't personally used it so can't say if it's good or not, but seems to be very useful.

Your friend is probably thinking of the program called "gparted" I recommend using the LiveCD of Gparted to edit the partitions on the hard drive. http://gparted.sourceforge.net/livecd.php What you will need to do is resize the main partition that Linux Mint is using, for example here is a...

Re: Google Chrome outdated plugin (flash) fix

Hate to be a stickler, but this is a pretty bad idea as far as internet security is concerned. I agree but it's up to the Linux Mint developers what flash version they want to package. FYI: I've been watching flash content (and youtube) beautifully since replacing the mint-flashplugin with the adob...

Re: Standard action icons in Qt apps not matching selected t

not sure if LM has this (might need to be installed), but when I'm on Debian i run

Code: Select all

qtconfig qt4
in a terminal, set the theme to GTK+ and the font,

Close the window, it will ask do i want to save, hit yes and my QT programs instantly match up near perfect with my GTK programs.

Re: Dropbox running from an unsupported location

Why bother with mint-dropbox or caja-dropbox, when you can just use the deb package already packaged by the dropbox team ?
