Re: Pro's & Cons of Macbook/Mac vs Mint 9 for audio work..

Thanks Dr Hu. I appreciate the help. Especially your comment about running a 64-bit OS on anything less than 4GB ram. What I might do then is look to increase the ram instead of purchasing a mac, as I think I have what suits my needs anyway. Plus there's no Mac version of FL Studio yet, so I'd still...

Re: Probs with Hibernate/restore/suspend

That's Ok, CaptainJupiter! At least it's a more widespread problem than I thought. I might raise this as a bug, or send this to the devs, just in case they don't know about this. It needs fixing,if you're reverting to Mint 9 because of it.

Re: No check box in permissions.

If you could post a screenshot of the problem, then I can understand exactly the issue you are having, as I don't know where you are looking for this check box, so my reply was based on me troubleshooting using my own system.

Re: No check box in permissions.

If you right-click the .exe file & scroll down to Properties, then navigate to Permissions, look down at the bottom of the dialog & you'll see Execute, to the right is the check-box that allows the file to execute as the program.

Hope that helps.

Re: Install with Wine, now where?

I see. I must admit, I've never had that problem, perhaps the Wine HQ forum or support team might be worth a try.
Good luck.

Re: Install with Wine, now where?

You might want to lookunder Wine>Browse C: drive>file browser>Program Files. You should see your Windows software in that folder. You might also notice two other folders, User & Windows, it's worth a look in there too.
Hope that helps.

Re: using Mint 9 on a laptop trying to use projector

I connected to a benQ projector about a month ago for a presentation, and it worked pretty much flawlessly once I'd tweaked the display settings, it detected the projector & away we went!!
Might be worth a try. (if you haven't already!!) :D :D

Re: LMMS - no sound.

Hmmm...very odd. I'll have a play & see if I can figure it out. I take it all the ALSA drivers/utils are installed, as your other sound apps are working. Check in synaptic if lmms-common/vst/dev files are installed. I did have a similar problem a while ago, but I think I used Jack as the audio s...

Re: LMMS - no sound.

Hi, Mijasdave. Nice to have you aboard. Have you tried to enable ALSA as the output system? When you go into LMMS, click edit, settings, this brings up the "general settings" panel. click on the speaker icon, & it presents you with a drop-down which will give you several choices: ALSA,...

Re: M-Audio Torq: How can I run it on Mint?

Thanks, Jason. Had a feeling that would be the case, as the Conectiv acts as a security device too, so you can't run Torq without it. BAH!!
I'll keep the W7 partition for a while longer, then!! :? :? :?

Hi All, wonder if anyone can help. I'm currently the proud owner of M-Audio's Torq DJ software, & wondered if anyone knows of a way to run it on Mint? Tried installing through Wine, but even with the Conectiv (M-Audio's external usb sound card/dongle) it still won't run. Is the only answer to Vi...

Well, I'm stumped, Tronis. Maybe something that the Clem & the team could help you with, or even the LMMS dev team, might be a bug/missing library, or just some hidden feature(all be it a half-assed one!!) within the app. I've NEVER seen that before. As I said in my earlier post, keep me informe...
