Re: Cannot access to windows network anymore

I had the same problem here - it is to do with the Windows TCP/IP service. Fortunately, Microsoft provides a quick fix on their site that you can run on affected Windows machines, available here. Granted, it's just

Code: Select all

netsh int ip reset
in a wizard, but it saves a bit of time.

Can't play audio CDs

Well, I can only play them in a very roundabout way. I'm running LMDE 32-bit, and whenever I insert an audio CD it does seem to be mounted ("Audio Disc" icon on the desktop). If I open the CD in Nautilus, I'm prompted to open Rhythmbox, which is where the problems come in. If I open Rhythm...

Re: Display won't sleep

I had a similar problem. The power management settings tool is a bit useless, it seems. The options you want are under the "Advanced" tab of the Screensaver settings. You can set power management settings for your monitor there. (I have a vague memory of this only working when I didn't hav...

Re: Access Windows Shares

This seems to be a problem with PCmanFM 0.5.2 (the file manager that comes with Mint LXDE 8 ) not supporting Samba shares. There's a kind of clumsy workaround involving smbnetfs here: http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=175&t=45332 PCmanFM 0.9.x (which I'm guessing we'll see in Mint 9 LX...

Re: Noobie with questions, requests, comments......

So it is a bug. Thanks. It isn't a bug; it's just down to the way PCManFM works. It doesn't just act as a file manager, but it also manages the desktop and wallpaper. Granted, it does seem weird, and the icon annoys me as well, but it isn't a bug because that's how PCManFM is supposed to work. I do...

Re: Way To Much Bloat In LXDE CE

snip You do realise that by emphasising "CHOICE AND FREEDOM" so much you've provided the solution to your own problem? It seems like you simply don't like Mint LXDE. Fine, there's plenty of choice of other distros out there for you to use. In addition, I also think you missed Kendall's or...

Re: Screensaver hangs

I guess you could try commenting out the "xscreensaver" line from your ~/.config/openbox/autostart.sh file. Not tried it myself but it seems logical that it would work.

Re: network manager notification not readable

I think this is an ATI driver issue as much as anything. I have a desktop running Mint 8 LXDE with an nVidia card, and such notifications display fine, but on a laptop with a similar ATI display card to the OP, I get similar artifacts on the notifications.

Re: pcmanfm and local shares?

Trust me, you probably have a much better clue than I do altair; I'm not a particularly experienced Linux user, and Mint 8 was my first dabble into LXDE as well. Anyway, I tried your .desktop-file-in-an-autostart folder idea, and I think it falls fowl of similar problems that the autostart.sh script...

Re: pcmanfm and local shares?

I had a similar problem, though it was browsing shares on a network drive; after a bit of googling I found a solution involving using smbnetfs and mounting to my home directory like this: First went to Preferences > Shared folders, made sure everything was set up properly there. Then: sudo apt-get i...
