No sound with Mint 15 XFCE version. Mint 15 Cinnamon works f

Installed Mint 15 XFCE on my desktop and none of the sound/output devices work.

How do I change these fonts?

How do I change these fonts used by the Menu, title bar fonts, etc? I can change everything else in Cinnamon-settings > fonts - but these don't change.

Re: HOW TO Software RAID(mdadm) with easy sSMTP Gmail allert

This is a very good tutorial. There are many on the internet like this; but this one is simple, clean, and decisive.

* Rebuilding the array in the case of a drive failure
