Re: Intel wireless 3160 (rev 83) stopped working

[SOLVED] Intel wireless 3160 (rev 83) stopped working

Good day, My wireless connection suddenly stopped working so I don't have internet access anymore except by using my Android's USB tethering to post this problem here. I am using XFCE Serena 18.1. The kernel is: 4.4.0-72-generic #93-Ubuntu SMP Fri Mar 31 14:07:41 UTC 2017 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Li...

Re: All forums user should reset their password

Clem, PHP is notorious for having weak security and there are vulnerabilities to exploit with Apache server too. I suggest switching to Java-based forums, it will be a pain to switch but is worth it.

Buying a T-Shirt

Hi all, I guess this is the most appropriate category for my question. I tried to buy a Mint T-Shirt recently but ran into problems specifying my credit card. The only options available to me was "bank number". Usually when buying online there is a clear VISA icon/option to fill out. This time I did...

Debian 7.0 inquiry

Hi all, It came to my attention that stable version of Debian 7 is released. Does LMDE reflect this new release? Not sure if I did this right, but I tried to change "testing" in my sources.list to "wheezy" to get new Debian 7 version but wasn't able to get any upgrades. How synchronized are the upda...

Hi all, I've had this LMDE for, oh, several years now and the only thing I haven't been able to make work so far is Chrome browser. I tried to install it from Package Manager and official Google site and while the app icon appears, when I click on it, nothing happens. I use Firefox as my browser but...

Re: Умер Linux Mint 13 Cinnamon :(

У меня тоже был неудачный опыт с 13ой версией (может дело в цифре?) - система глючила при установки языковых библиотек. Установил LMDE и все работает замечательно - четко, быстро, просто наслаждение. Если вас не волнуют некоторые dialog boxes в стиле win95 то LMDE вам может очень понравится. P.S. Ме...
