I wish I had not renamed my .mozilla folder. That screwed my Firefox settings, but realplay still does not work.

Try xsane

sudo aptitude install xsane

Most USB scanners work out of the box.

My Belkin PCI F5D7000 v3 wifi card works. It uses the Ralink RT2500 chipset, which is approved by the FSF.

Setting up WPA encryption is not the easiest, you have to edit text files, but it does work.

Rubyripper is a better CD ripper than Soundjuicer

I suggest you try installing Rubyripper instead of Soudjuicer as the default CD ripper. It rips twice and compares the output, so it's much more accurate than anything else for Linux. Basically, it tries to do the same as EAC - the best ripper on Windows. http://wiki.hydrogenaudio.org/index.php?titl...

These are the instructions for Ubuntu. The instructions for Mint are similar, you just need the Mint repositories.

Ask here: http://amarok.kde.org/forum/

Alternatively try Exaile. It has many radio stations built in.

Mint probably is not the best choice for old hardware as it uses Gnome. How about Xubuntu, which uses XFCE? They have an install CD.

http://www.linuxeq.com/ has several alternatives for DVDShrink. You'll have to look yourself to see if they do the specific job you want.

I forgot to mention that it's a GTK port of Amarok. Fits Mint well.
