[Solved] No media player will play my cd.

Well I found the solution; seems the cd/dvd player was dirty somewhat. I tried numerous dvd's like Solus, LM 11.04, just to see if the audio cd was bad. Nothing worked so as I am sitting here looking at the player after I removed the cd and figured, "What the hell. It's not working" so I took my fin...

Re: No media player will play my cd.

My bad; I am now on MX-Linux and it is using
Linux mx 4.15.0-1-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 4.15.4-1~mx17+1 (2018-02-23) x86_64 GNU/Linux
and still no luck.
I'll keep plugging along and maybe by accident I will find the fix. Yeah right... lol

Re: No media player will play my cd.

Yes, I even rebooted; to no avail.
I remember many years back I had clementine installed and it worked perfectly, now, not even.
If you have or anyone has no defiinitive answers, that's ok. Life goes on.

Re: No sound when play music from aplay utility

I had the same problem but installed SOX and that did the trick.
In fact I just checked now, have shortcut to play the shutter sound, when I press capslock and it wasn't working, no sound. Install sox and now it's fine.

Slick-greeter

I have installed the slick-greeter and it works perfectly. One minor issue though and it's not about functionality it's about the display in the Logon box/panel. I use Xfce and the 'tiny' xfce logo is missing, not the Logo at the bottom of the screen. I see no configuration option to enable it. Anyo...

Hover speed in cinnamon menu

Is there any way to slow down the hover? When moving mouse over Categories the Applications show, but, to me anyway, they show too quickly. Kind of distracting, if you know what I mean.
Hence my question.

Startup application not running

I have a startup that switches the Ctrl and Alt keys. /usr/bin/xmodmap /home/ajax/.Xmodmap in startup applications. However it never runs. Now, if I got Settings and select Startup Applications then scroll down to my configured startup and Click the Run Now it works. I have tried 0 delay to 10sec de...

Re: 15 sec login

Buzzer, wrong. It's the freaking Applets causing the slow login.
Let's see now, Cinnamon is the Flagship DE for Linux Mint but if you install Cinnamon on another Distro, good luck getting support. Real nice.
As the airlines say, "Buh bye."

Re: 15 sec login

Because I feel it is a Cinnamon problem. It has little basis on which Distro you run, It's Linux MIint's showcase DE.

15 sec login

15 sec login seems to be a bit too long. I renamed .config/autostart and logged in. 11 sec login. There must be something Cinnamon is doing behind the scenes. My laptop is just about 10yrs old. Once I am logged in the system is fine, really snappy. I also have Xfce on this computer and it logs in in...

gtk 3.20 or gtk 3.22

I just came over from running Antergos (Arxh), got tired of their constant elitist attitude, but at least I was on the lastest gtk, 3.22 in that case. Now I am here and all my custom themes do not work correctly. My question is, when the heck is Mint going to get gtk 3.20 or 3.22 on the system? Both...

Meta packages

I just installed WPS and removed LibreOffice and when I did Mint themes, Mint Artwork were also removed. WHY oh WHY? What has LibreOffice have to do with Mint themes and artwork. Fortunately I had backups so no 'real' harm done. I presume that somewhere in there is a meta package that has dependenci...

Re: Just a side note to Clem

I don't believe you guys. They are errors. IF innocuous then don't issue them. For christsake, they are errors. Get over your selff-righteousness about whether Clem should read the posting.
You guys sound like Arch users with all your indignity of someone raising an issue.
