Re: Linux Mint 11 Installation DVD won't boot

You say you have an nVidia card in that machine? Yes Firstly, it would be useful to know exactly what the error message on boot is - if it is too much to type down then use a digital camera to take a photo of the screen and post that for us to see. Well, with the DVD, there is no error message...it...

Linux Mint 11 Installation DVD won't boot

What a waste of my night. I tried all night to install Mint 11 to my main PC. It's a 3GHZ Core 2 Duo on a plane jane Intel DP35DP mobo. 4 gigs of RAM, recent (but low end) nvidia card, etc. I could not for the life of me get it to boot off of the DVD OR a USB drive. The checksum of the ISO I downloa...

Re: Slow flash in Mint 10 KDE

Wow, that definitely did it.

Kind of an annoying fix though - I have to disable desktop effects every time i want to watch a youtube vid.

Is there a fix for this?

Slow flash in Mint 10 KDE

I searched around a bit and found that I'm not the only one complaining about flash on Mint. I have a fairly powerful machine, yet a 480p youtube video is very choppy in full screen mode. On this same machine, I could previously run 1080p in full screen in youtube with an old version of Kubuntu. At ...

Re: About Firefox's Google search engine

I have found the simplest way (for the ones who can execute sudo commands). Just execute the following 5 commands and restart firefox cd /usr/share/linuxmint/common/artwork/firefox/ sudo wget http://mxr.mozilla.org/firefox/source/browser/locales/en-US/searchplugins/google.xml?raw=1 -O google.xml.fi...

Re: Portable home directory?

Well, i already have a separate data partition, so perhaps I should just store my home directory there and then write a script to create symbolic links to everything in there.

Re: Portable home directory?

Although you cannot copy the whole /home folder due to compatibility issues as pointed out by viking777, you can copy certain settings. For example I copied thunderbird and compiz settings and they work. Other things might not work, so you cannot blindly copy the whole folder. I would assume that t...

Re: Portable home directory?

Oh dear, not this one again :( Someone is wrong. If you installed Windows 7 and copied in the registry for Windows XP would you expect it to work? No? Then why do you expect it to work in Linux? Because with the exception of a few hidden folders, most other things should line up for the most part. ...

Portable home directory?

Hi all. I'm moving from Kubuntu to Linux Mint KDE. I generally prefer to do clean installations of linux rather than upgrading. However, I'd prefer not to lose too many of my settings, preferences, and shortcuts. Someone suggested that I copy my /home directory to it's own partition on the disk befo...

Re: Linux Mint 10 KDE

Hi all, I personally couldn't wait for the new KDE Mint any longer and went ahead and installed KDE manually on my Linux Mint 10. I was a little dissatisfied with how it looked and made my own theme proposal: http://i.imgur.com/BShM2l.jpg The idea was to mimic the theme of Linux Mint 10 as much as ...

Re: Linux Mint 10 KDE

Cool. I got someone a dell Mini 1012 for christmas and would love to have time to install mint 10 KDE on it. Do you think it should be done by the 22nd? If not, I can just throw kubuntu on it.

I've got a new 128GB SSD patiently waiting for Mint 10 KDE. I've run Kubuntu on my main rig exclusively for 3 years, so I'm excited for the new change.

Re: Mint KDE 9 stability issues

Updates - My system stopped locking up after I replaced hardware in the machine. I didn't have the time to trace it to a specific bit of hardware, so I ended up with a new mobo/cpu/ram/video card. Runs like a top now.
