Nemo only shows cover art for part of an album

I have a bit of a weird problem that I'm not quite sure how to solve. When viewing files in my music folder, the cover art displays for some of the files, but not all of them. I've cleared the thumbnail cache and rebooted, but that hasn't solved the problem. Attached is a screenshot of my issue. Doe...

Unusual issue with mouse pointer.

Two things are going on with my mouse pointer. 1. When I move the mouse, it's slow to react - slower than normal. I've checked my mouse settings and they haven't changed since before this problem started a few days ago. 2. When I mouse over a menu, I don't see the mouse pointer. In the attached scre...

Re: Linux Mint 13 "Maya" RC released!

Has anyone else noticed that in LM 13/Cinnamon RC, the volume level reverts back to the default level when you reboot? I keep having to turn the volume back down to a lower level after every boot/reboot. Also, where are we reporting bugs for this RC? Launchpad (Linux Mint) is rather useless these d...

Re: Touchpad stops working in Mint 12

On my ThinkPad T61, the touchpad stopped working in Ubuntu 11.10 & LM12 after working flawlessly for a while. I installed gpointing-devices-settings and upon starting it for the first time, I found that the 'Disable touchpad' option was checked. (No clue why. The settings on Mouse Preferences were ...

Re: How to stop screen from going to sleep after 10 minutes?

I take it that xset command worked for you as a test? Yes, the xset command worked as a test. I am a KDE and a Gnome user (when on that type of DE), but the KDE (my main system) that I use is the older "3.5.x" version. Newer KDE may be a bit different (?) and I haven't tried or used it for quite aw...

@slider: How would I add that to a start up app? I'm not familiar with that procedure. Thanks for your help!

[SOLVED] Screen goes to sleep after 10 minutes of idle time.

I recently installed LM 12 KDE, and upgraded via backports to KDE 4.8.1. Anytime I let my computer sit idle for 10 minutes my monitor goes to sleep, no matter how many times I change the settings in power management, and no matter how many time I change the screensaver options. Does anyone have a fi...

Re: Linux Mint 12 "Lisa" RC released!

Attempt to install failed. The live user seemed to work okay, so I decided to install. I couldn't get past 'chosing a picture for my user account' because the continue button was off screen (below). I suspect this is due to the screen dimensions of my HP mini-210 netbooks, on which I am currently r...

Re: SOLVED: Can't install LM 12 on Netbook

Yeah I tried the terminal command first and it didn't work, so luckily the alt-click command did work. I'm glad I can test this RC out, because I don't want to use Ubuntu since they moved to Unity (tried it out and it's just not for me).

Thanks again!

@nunol: THANK YOU! The "press alt + move the window" worked! I can't believe I didn't try that before, but thank you so much for helping me figure this out.

I'm trying to install the LM 12 RC on my HP Mini, and when it gets to the point where I have to select my picture, I can't go any further because I cannot click "continue". I've tried everything to change the window size to where the continue button shows up on the screen, and nothing works. What do...

The "super key" is the "Windows Key", located between the Ctrl & Alt keys.
