Re: Mint 11 Compiz not working

Sorry for double posting, I usually post through a mobile device. By the way I agree that your method is easier,but the latest compiz itself is unstable and buggy and many plugins don't work properly as the used to,thats why i suggested that we downgrade to stable version and be on the safe side.

Re: Trojans & Virus ???

Could have said it better; only install apps that are tested eg: in the repository or from a well recognized sites.

Re: CPU usage when idle

In the terminal type:

Code: Select all

to check for the processes thats taking up your cpu resource. An alternative is to check through system monitor itself. My hunch is it's the update manager because it periodically checks for updates. You can safely close it.

HOW TO DOWNGRADE TO COMPIZ 0.8.6 IN LINUXMINT 11

You've probably noticed that not all Compiz plugins work as they used to in Linuxmint 10 and changing some of the default Compiz settings results in quite a few bugs. This can be solved by downgrading Compiz to version 0.8.6. Warning: the instructions below are for the classic Ubuntu desktop but it ...

Re: swap partition disappeared after dist-upgrade

I agree with xircon. But on the bright side, the upgrade saved you some space, which otherwise would have gone waste if it had been allocated as swap.frankly I see no use for swap on modern machines,by that i mean personal computers and not servers.

@ sumski thank you for sharing, I've already found that article you referred to and updated my kernel to 2.6.38, and my problems were solved. I didn't post it here since i thought my thread was dead. I believe your post will be helpful to others having the same problem.

Re: Help with corrupted/damaged hard drive?

IMHO, I think its better to replace a new hard disk.. I have faced this problem, and i realised its both futile and fustrating to recover data from a disk with bad sectors, using linux. The only other option is to return your hard drive to the manufacturer, to let them try recovering your data.
