Tab key prints \6=0p] and other keys won't work right

Hi everyone, for some reason the TAB key prints "\6=0p]" instead of tabbing. I'm not sure if this is a hardware issue but this was the first place I thought of posting. Other keys were affected as well: CAPSLOCK key prints "t[9l'" (I have to press SHIFT to get allcaps), and the F...

Re: Close all open terminals

I was hoping there would be more "humane" way but I guess the only way to close all would be to kill it. :lol:

[SOLVED] Close all open terminals

Let's say I have 5 terminals which are open (separate terminals, not in tabs), is there a bash command which will close ALL terminals at the same time instead of typing 'exit' to each terminal one-by-one?

Re: Reinstall GRUB

Mint 8 x64. I just did a reinstall and am about to dualboot windows 7 which means that M$ is most surely going to mess things up again. I'll need to reinstall grub to get things working like before.

Re: How do I tell GNOME-Do to index another directory?

Got it. Apparently, you just have to enable the Files and Folders plugin then configure it by selecting the folders you want indexed. In this case, I added /data to the list.

Right now GNOME-Do is only indexing my files in /home/username/. How can I tell GNOME-Do to index my /data partition as well?

Re: Help with permissions for new /data partition

I got it! Apparently, I was too absentminded to see that /data is owned by root (not by myusername) which is why I can't write in it. All I did was run

Code: Select all

sudo chown -Rv myusername:myusername /data

which fixed everything.

But a disk writes from the outside going in not inside going out (like in CDs). If I follow yours, then /swap would be written at the outermost making it the fastest.

My Gparted shows the "Rarely Used" setup . . and accessing my /data partition will be theoretically fastest ! So in my case, since I already have 4GB of memory then my swap would almost never be used, correct? So, I should partition my disks as such (in order of creation in livecd): / (fa...

Re: About reinstalling Mint8 x64...

If you are low on RAM, and are likely to be using swap, then mount it at the end of the partitions, which is fastest. (closer to the outside of the actual disk) This is where I get confused. Using the livecd, my partitions are setup in this order: / then /home then /swap. Are you saying /swap will ...
