Re: Hardrive space linuxmint

What I meant was the 543 GiB you see free in linux is actually:

543*1.074 = 583 GB free which is not much different from 587 free when using windows

Re: Home Network w/o Internet??

What is the current problem at the moment?

Can the linux machine always see the windows machine using ip address?
For example, open nautilus click Go -> Location
Type in smb://192.168.0.120/
where 192.168.0.120 should be replace with ip of each of your windows machine

Re: wine for mint9

website for it is www.winehq.org

one way of installing it is to click on your mint menu and Choose Package Manager

And search for playonlinux
Right click on it choose Mark for Installation, then click apply

On ubuntu the link playonlinux appears under the games section, not sure about mint

Go to advanced search
