Re: mint 13 missing title bars

Probably helpful to share some details. Can you run the following command on the terminal and post the output here? (You can copy text from the terminal, see it's Edit menu.) inxi -SGx This is the outcome: System: Host: desktop Kernel: 3.2.0-23-generic x86_64 (64 bit, gcc: 4.6.3) Desktop: KDE 4.8.4...

Re: mint 13 missing title bars

No I'm using the KDE version.

Vincent, I'll post the outcome of that command as soon as possible (hopefully tonight)?

Greetz!

mint 13 missing title bars

After a lot of trial and error I was finally able to get the nvidia drivers working with my 8300gs card. However with all the uninstalling and reinstalling al kinds of drivers (x-swat, nouveau, nvidia, ...) I am missing the title bar on every window I open. With title bar I mean the one with the min...

Re: nvidia gives cinnamon trouble

I'm guessing there is some issue with the 3d acceleration which is needed to run Cinnamon. Anybody else with the same issue, solutions,...

If it wouldn't work out, how can I switch back to the default Nouveau driver?

nvidia gives cinnamon trouble

Hi, yesterday I did a new install of mint 13 64-bit. I installed the latest nvidia drivers following these instructions: http://www.unixmen.com/nvidia-driver-295-59-released-install-in-ubuntu-12-04-linuxmint13-fedora17-arch-gentoo/ Support for my nvidia 8300gs should be alright with this driver vers...

Re: mint 13 vs LMDE

I would also suggest Maya for you. Maya is a Long-Term Support (LTS) release and will get many updates over its lifespan. Do you have a preference for the desktop environment you use? Coming from Mint 10, I would guess you're using Gnome 2 right now. Mint 13 MATE would be the logical upgrade from t...

Re: mint 13 vs LMDE

Are there any other benefits to using Maya over LMDE. I'm looking for a system whic I can use for a long time without reinstalling. 5 years for MAya is alreadyvery nice, but you can(t beat a rolling reklease on that. I'm still fairly new to Linux, maye Maya would be better then... Perhaps I should j...

mint 13 vs LMDE

Hi guys, I want to upgrade my mint 10 install to a new version. However I'm not quite sure if I should pick the 13 or the LMDE release. One important thing I'd like to know is if mint 13 will get updates on Cinnamon and Thunderbird? I assume that is the case for LMDE since this is a rolling release....

Re: Black line when maximized

Changing the panel size has no effect to it.
I'll try to fiddle with the Compiz settings, maybe that helps.

Black line when maximized

Whenever I open a program, say Firefox or Naurilus, for the first time there is always a black line above the tray panel. You can see this on the image that's attached. Minimizing and maximizing the window cures this glitch. It's not really a problem but I do find it curious. Anyone with a solution ...

Re: I lost my desktop

I did a reinstall. I switched from 9 to 10, I wanted to stick to the LTS but Mint 10 just looks too good:-)

I lost my desktop

I removed all packages which came with xine-player and freevo. Apparently I was too rigorous in deleting packages, because now I lost my desktop. If I startup I can only login on the terminal, no gui whatsoever. I already tried recovery mode-fix broken packages but that didnt help. Is there somethin...

Re: XP won't boot - black screen

I'd like to stick with grub2. I tried the solution posted on the gentoo wiki but that doesn't work either.
I do get a message though this time: 'Error while loading operating system'

That's already better than just a black screen, I guess.

Re: XP won't boot - black screen

Let me ask: Was the current /sdb the original boot disk of the computer when Windows was the only OS? Did you then install Mint9 on the second disk, the current /sda? With /sda, the second disk, now designated in the bios as the disk to boot from? That was indeed the case. On the sda disk was an ol...

Re: XP won't boot - black screen

Before doing anything else run this terminal command and try rebooting, even if you have before. sudo update-grub If that does not fix it then: You can run sudo blkid and verify that the uuid for the windows partition is correct in the code you posted from grub.cfg I think to get a better picture o...
