Re: [Gaming] Linux MInt using "Steam."

played TF2 via steam on Linux Mint 14 Cinnamon just to see if it worked - it did +1 to that :D I tried it this weekend and it was running smooth on my Intel HD3000 Graphics. I've got HD3000 too and was wondering if anything works well with it but if TF2 runs well then that's a good sign. Wonder if ...

Re: Why do new people give up on Linux?

Just popular enough that there ARE users (and users that know their stuff) but not enough users that developers have to spend all their time catering to end-users. More users would mean more developers. More developers would mean bugs were fixed faster. Less bugs would mean less updates. Maybe you ...

Re: Using thumb drive to install Linux Mint

I think Startup Disk Creator should work but I always use UNetbootin. Live USB runs and installs faster than Live CD/DVD.

How?


In KWalletManager there is an option 'Enable KDE wallet subsystem'. Just uncheck it and apply.

You can turn Kwallet off. That's what I did. Don't know what that secret service thing you're talking about is.

Re: problem displaying on second monitor from laptop

Can you drag your browser window to the other screen? If you can then it is working like it should. Normal behavior is to show the desktop only on the primary monitor, but you can change it to mirrored in the settings. I'm talking about Cinnamon by the way. Don't know how MATE or some other DE works.

Re: Kaneli vai kamu

MATE on kevyempi ja toimii ehkä varmemmin vanhoilla koneilla, mutta kannattaa kokeilla molempia että näkee kumpi kyseisessä koneessa pyörii paremmin. Cinnamon on kehityksen kärkeä kun taas MATE on sopiva niille jotka eivät halua luopua vanhasta kunnon Gnome 2:sta. Yleisyydestä en osaa sanoa muuta ku...

Re: Java mintissä

Javan voi poistaa, mutta sen voi myös laittaa pois päältä selaimen asetuksista jos vaikka tarvitsisikin sitä myöhemmin. Voi olla että edelliset uutisoidut haavoittuvuudet on jo korjattu tai sitten ei. En tiedä ja itselläni on edelleen päällä vaikka en ikinä sitä tarvitsekkaan.

Re: Linux Mint 13 "hot corner" shortcut

Hot corner switches workspaces by default so using ctrl+alt+left or right does the trick.

Re: Linuxmint 13 release date?

Why is it that nobody can yet figure out a way to entirely duplicate all the goodies that we came to love in Gnome 2 (fully user configurable features like Panels, 3D Cairo Dock, 3D rotating cube and all that other good stuff). That was awesome, and convinced me to completely dump Window$ in favor ...

Use Disk Usage Analyzer (in accessories) to see where are the largest folders. Maybe some logs are running wild. :?

Re: Ubuntu One Can't sync folders

Looks like this bug here. Possible fix by saxsux (#4):
Deleting ~/.config/ubuntuone and ~/.local/share/ubuntuone and restarting my computer seems to have sorted it out.

Scrolling down there's also that you need to remove credentials from Gnome key ring.
