Re: "print to file" results in very large pdf output files

Have you looked at GIMP? Might be a solution there. Otherwise, LibreOffice sometimes has odd functions like this available.

Re: Standard User cannot run Microsoft Office

The problem might be that you were logged in as root for the install therefore the permissions were set for the root account. Try installing as "standard user" and see if that solves the problem. Otherwise, you will need to log into the root account and enable permission for other users.

Re: USB Image Writing

If you want to create a bootable USB drive I have found that UNetbootin works well. It is also available in the repos for easy install via Software Manager.

Re: Firefox heavy on CPU?

If you are having high cpu usage with firefox it is usually due to flash. Using the add-on flashblock can help to stop this.

Re: Why is Firefox so Slow on Mint 15?

I have been having the same problem with FF 23 on LMDE. I'm guessing that it is something that Mozilla did which happens occasionally.

Re: opening .jar files

It would be nice if we could jut click and run but until then CLI will have to do.

open a terminal: java -jar <filename>

If there is another way please post.

Re: Internet became suddenly slow when Mint was installed

Don't know why you might be having a problem but if it was working fine w/ Debian then you might want to look at LMDE.

Re: cannot start Wine and Office in Wine anymore

If you uninstalled/reinstalled wine then you might need to reinstall Office. Otherwise, to find the .exe files, open your home dir and press <ctrl>+h to show the hidden files. open .wine and look in there.

Re: Firefox / LMDE problem

If you haven't installed any add-ons then I can only suggest un-installing and then re-installing via synaptic and see if that fixes the problem.

Re: resume from suspend-Graphics problem-Mint 12

Resume leaves me with a blank screen with just the cursor but otherwise unresponsive. Alt + F2 + r does nothing. The only remedy that I have is to do ctrl+alt+backspace to log out and in. This is unacceptable since I (obviously) lose all of my open work. Any ideas?

Running Mint 11.

Re: is mint 12 rolling distro?

Easy way to tell:

If it has a version number, it is not a rolling distro.

If not then it is.

Re: Mount a Clonezilla img

Clonezilla does not allow you to mount the image (backup/restore, transfer only). This might change in the future.
