Re: Linux Mint 7 "Gloria" released!

Mint just keeps getting better and better. Yesterday morning, I tried to load Windows 7 on one of my machines but it doesn't support my integrated sound card. After a lot of internet searching and a couple blue death screens, I gave up. Mint 7 Gloria was my next project and it was running smoothly 3...

Mint 5 in KDE is very stable. I'm thinking of going back to it myself.

Re: System will not detect audio CDs

I reinstalled KDE hoping that was the problem even though my research indicated pretty much what Barry said. I did however find that I could play CDs with KsCD and rip them with K3B. That's fine with me because I don't play or rip that many CDs anyway. :)

System will not detect audio CDs

First off, I'm really impressed with the new Mint 6 KDE version. It looks very nice. So far, every thing has been working well until I tried to play a CD and the system won't play it or even show that a CD exists in the drive. I did some checking in the users/groups section and did have myself in th...

Re: Ugrade from Daryna Beta to Final Version

If you have beta 44 keep it. Boo writes in the release notes that the difference between 044 and final does not make it worthwile upgrading http://www.linuxmint.com/rel_daryna_kde.php There are differences, but if your present B044 works for you keep it and maybe change with Elyssa or version 6 Tha...

Re: Daryna KDE CE BETA 044 is out!

I can no longer minimize windows to the taskbar and get them back. They don't even show up in the taskbar anymore.

Synaptic installs packages fine but Adept fails.

Re: Daryna KDE CE BETA 044 is out!

I don't know if this is a KDE problem or a Mint problem or just an Adept problem, but Adept has crashed while trying to load several packages. Adept stops at 38% install and hangs which takes a couple reboots to straighten out. Strangely, though, all of the packages that I've tried to installed wher...

Single Click Mouse Setting solved

Hi, all... I've got Darnya loaded and can't find the setting in Gnome to allow single click starting of programs when clicking on an icon. I haven't used Gnome for awhile, but I'm sure that I used to be able to do it. Anyway, I've looked everywhere and can't find it. Thanks in advance, and if it's n...

Re: Epson Style C88 not listed among drivers ... my solution

I will just embellish on another answer to your question because I had the same issue and fixed it by ditching the KDE printing for my (our) C88 needs. I used the Adept Installer to add Gnome printing configuration/features. In like less than 15bminutes after reading your question and the remark th...

So, which package does one install to get XFCE after installing the Gnome version? I hate to go in and click on everything that comes up from an XFCE search. Are there are a couple base pkgs to install that would pick up the other needed ones?

I ran in to the same problem. Gnome Cassandra has no problem with the C88 but the KDE version does.

I don't know if this is a Mint problem, XP problem or a hardware problem. I have a Sony Vaio laptop with a dual boot system of XP and Bianca.
