Re: Live Runs Fine, Install Fails/Hangs

Yes, it would seem that the graphics are the culprit. Thanks for your suggestions. BUT, I can't even get to that point because I can't get the installation to even START.

Re: Live Runs Fine, Install Fails/Hangs

Hi Derek, Thanks for all of the suggestions. However, none of it applies to this little computer. There are no settings in the BIOS dealing with graphics at all. It would appear that the ION graphics are built in and they are the only display there is. There are no Intel graphics on board at all. Th...

Live Runs Fine, Install Fails/Hangs

Hello all, I've been trying to install LM 16 (15, 14) and other distros (LXLE, ZorinOS, Zorin Lite, etc), both the 32 and 64 bit versions, and I have the same exact problem with all of these.

Re: Development Environment

Thank you. One last error after trying to compile:

No package 'gtk+-2.0' found

Can't find that it in Software Manager or Package Manager.

Thanks,

Development Environment

Hi All, I've been away from linux for a long time and just installed Linux Mint 13. I want to install MythTV and see there are no compilers installed. Is there a way to install everything (c++, g++, GPP etc.) and the necessary libs in as few steps as possible, i.e. not having to install every compil...

Re: Trouble playing online games

Having a similar problem with Social City on Facebook. ( http://apps.facebook.com/socialcity/) The game constantly loses sync (with the server). This happens in Chrome and/or Firefox, so the only other common denominator is Mint. All of the rest of the games (Farmville, Farm Town, Tiki Island, Treas...
