Not running MATE so may be wrong, but have you tried right clicking on the date? Is there a preferences/options there?
I hope that attachment works, but nope no setting.

Re: No Sound on Acer Aspire 7741z-5731

This is to show Lubuntu/Linux Mint 9 LXDE vs Linux Mint 10 LXDE The first is in Linux Mint 10 LXDE. The Second attachment is with the sound card showing up, in Lubuntu AND Linux Mint 9 LXDE I'm sure the most simple fix is to go to Linux Mint 9 LXDE, but I would much rather be current and up to date.

Edit: it turns out Linux Mint 10 LXDE also doesn't like install/recognize my wifi card.

What can ...

Re: Isadora freezes completely

Let me ask another question.

Would it be adviseable to switch to say Ubuntu 10.04 or LMDE (ive never used Debian before..) to see if it's a hardware issue vs an OS issue?

Re: Hello!

Mastablasta,

thank you!

I resolved the issue by moving to Mint 9. It works. I know I should probably move up, but that's the great thing about linux, im learning, is the varying styles and choices

but when/if I upgrade, i'll keep your advice in mind.

If it helps, my laptop is an Acer Aspire 7741Z-5731 and i think my soundcard is 5 Series/3400 Series Chipset High Definition Audio

I think. I'm not sure. I'm still incredibly new to this whole linux thing--but I am loving it and I refuse to give up as I'm always willing to learn!
