Re: How To: Completely remove PulseAudio & replace it with A

...I haven't used Gnome/Cinnamon for awhile but when I did the Volume Control applet was dependent on Pulse. No Pulse = No Volume Control applet. :shock: The volume control applet was never an issue for LMDE. It was an issue for the main edition, and it was resolved! See my other tutorial (section ...

Great article, but the psychological impact on the MS victims would be enormous if it included a picture of bikini-wearing students in front of their Linux boxes. :lol:

Or go for ndiswrapper with Windows XP drivers.

Re: static IP WIFI not working

This is what I did some years ago. Might help, I hope. 1) Add DNS nameservers to /etc/resolv.conf sudo echo "nameserver x.x.x.x" > /etc/resolv.conf sudo echo "nameserver y.y.y.y" >> /etc/resolv.conf 2) Open /etc/network/interfaces and define appropriate stanzas for wireless inter...

Hi kaspin.
The same considerations don't apply to Linux, so there is no need to get rid of unwanted fonts.

Re: Newbe help for adding my router to dns list

First you need to create a file called resolv.conf in the /etc folder. Run: sudo touch /etc/resolv.conf Then you need to add your dns nameservers to resolv.conf. Run: sudo echo "nameserver xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx" > /etc/resolv.conf sudo echo "nameserver xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx" >> /etc/resolv.c...

Re: Debian Testing /etc/issue and /etc/issue.net original

I ran a search with Google using the key words:

debian wheezy cat /etc/issue.net

I am not 100% sure, but the search results indicate that the content of the original files are:

/etc/issue
Debian GNU/Linux wheezy/sid \n \l

/etc/issue.net

Re: DPKG Error Code need help

You can only use one package management program at a time. For instance you shouldn't open Synaptic and Software Center at the same time.
Other than that, check out the solutions provided by "feral-deb" (post #6) here and Thomas Zahreddin (post #8) here.

Re: Wifi problems

As far as I know, ndiswrapper works only with Windows XP drivers.
You could try to find XP drivers, or install Realtek Linux drivers.
For the latter, check out this page:
