Re: Unoffical Mint OS X !!!

That's good to hear and after all, I rarely use open office, so I think I will give global menu a try. :)

Re: Unoffical Mint OS X !!!

I wonder, how is global menu integrating with the system. Any problems so far with it?

Re: Mint 9 + widows XP

I am not sure about this, I have to use windows for a long time.

Press Super(The flag button)+F and run msconfig. From there you should find a boot list, check if mint is there. If it is, check the timeout, make sure its not 0 seconds (default is 10 by the way).

Re: Folder Access Restricted

As JasonLG said, you can edit the permissions, so you can access files only from your account. Screenshot:

Re: Nvidea GEforce MX 4000 system blank ...

I had the same problem with you some time ago, I uninstalled the driver by using the live cd and chrooting my hard disk(I don't know if this method affects something else, be aware it might brick something but i don't think so). So I booted from the live cd and executed the following commands: sudo ...

Re: optical drives don't mount

I assume the disk you are using is fine. Anyway, I searched around the web for your problem and I can't find a solution. Someone else that had this problem said that booting with a disk in the optical drive will auto-mount it. Have you tried that? I will keep searching for a while and let you know i...

Re: optical drives don't mount

If you don't mind of another crash, re-add the fstab entry and run VLC through a terminal, so we can see what kind of error it gives.

Re: Gigabyte Hybrid TV Tuner (GT-PTV-TAF-RH)

I am using antenna signal and there is only one input on the card(and one s-video). But I don't think its that, because the card is not recognized at all by tvtime. Is there any other program I should try? Edit: I tried to set up the card at my windows partition and it worked, so i am pretty sure th...

Re: Gigabyte Hybrid TV Tuner (GT-PTV-TAF-RH)

First of all, thanks a lot for the help.

I followed the steps on the tutorial smoothly and without errors but tvtime won't change its mind, it still gives me the same error. Do you have any other ideas?

Re: optical drives don't mount

This means your optical drive is ok. Try mounting a cd manually with the following command:

Code: Select all

sudo mount -t iso9660 -o ro /dev/cdrom /media/cdrom


This will mount your cd to /media/cdrom, test if it accessible now.

Re: optical drives don't mount

Mounted volumes should appear at /media/ not at /home/media(Unless you changed it). Also, check if your optical drive is recognized by the system with this command: ls /dev/cd* My output is: $ ls /dev/cd* /dev/cdrom /dev/cdrw This means my optical drive is recognized by the system. You should get so...

Re: LG Chocolate Touch Hard drive no showing..

Make sure you are connecting your phone using the 'Mass Storage' mode if it exists. Most phones have something like that(Including my Omnia Pro and my sister's LG Pop).
