Re: Grub 2 prompt only at boot

Were you dual-booting before, as in having 2 different Linuxes, or Linux and WIndows? If so, did you get rid of the other OS?

Re: Mint 12 splashscreen?

I know that in mint 12 they disabled the splash screen and i have tried using plymouth and splashy however neither will bring back the splash screen and i dont like the entire black screen while booting so any ideas/comments would be great.

I beg to differ. Librewriter 3.4.4 saves .docx files just fine. I have a few that I have to edit on a semi-regular basis, and as long as you tell it to keep the current format, or whatever the exact wording is, it'll save the .docx file without incident.

Panels not responding

I decided to revisit LMDE. After wrangling with the gstreamer update, I installed Bleachbit and Unetbootin. One of them wanted(needed?) syslinux and extlinux. Who am I to argue? :) Anyway, after everything was installed, the panels disappeared because of (I'm guessing here) either syslinux or extlin...

Re: LMDE on a DVDless Server

I've got a computer in my home that I want to put LMDE on but it has no DVD drive, and LMDE has no cd edition. I've tried a few things - I couldn't figure out how to do a grub network boot, and booting the LMDE dvd iso from grub2 as a loopback device resulted in a failed livecd boot. So I'm left wi...

Re: Main menu items won't start [alacarte]

Hi all! I recently got the Humble Indie Bundle 4, and as you may know you, many times you don't get installers, just a tar ball which you extract. Problem is that it doesn't make those games appear in the main menu, so I added them with alacarte. But when I launch them from the main menu, I just ge...

I purchased the Humble Indie Bundle #4, but then realised that I was unable to install the .deb and the .tar.gz files of Bit.Trip Runner. I believe that this is because it needs the latest libstdc++. Is there some way that this can be achieved on Linux Mint 11 Katya? On Synaptic, I noticed that the...

Re: HOWTO disable touchpad on Mint-12

I did not find a "dconf-editor" (with a 'D') anywhere. You may have to install it. I can't remember if it was there after the initial install. Once the app is running, negotiate your way to org, then gnome, then settings-daemon, then peripherals (clicking the little black arrow beside each one). Wh...
