Re: GNOME 3 in Mint 11

Welcome to the age of the tablet. I'm not sure of application developers realize that not everyone has or is even going to get a tablet. I had an etch-a-sketch when I was a kid and that's about as close to tablet pc as I feel like getting. Look at Envy and Gnome.... Now look at the new windows 8. Se...

Re: Non-Critical nVidia Software Loading Screen Strange anno

YOU are AWESOME. I used the instructions given by remoulder. Worked perfectly. Annoyance solved. It's a known problem. I had it on one laptop after installing the ATI driver. See: http://community.linuxmint.com/tutorial/view/37 Read the tutorial, and read down to the comments by remoulder. Angel

Re: Non-Critical nVidia Software Loading Screen Strange anno

Thank you for the reply. That at least rules out any issues with Gnome or KDE.


Perhaps if there is a way to simply replace the loading screen with another one just like it?

Non-Critical nVidia Software Loading Screen Strange annoyanc

This isn't a major issue but it's mildly annoying and perhaps someone else has had this and fixed it. When I install the nVidia drivers after installing LinuxMin 9, everything works fine except one thing. The loading screen with the pretty LinuxMint Logo and the five lights (Even though Capt.Picard ...

Re: Need Direction / Key mapping

One more thought.... Seems like Linux is acting as though this device is just another keyboard. If the keyboard is looking at a particular file or key mapping file per say... and if Linux thinks this device is just another keyboard plugged into my machine, then it may be possible that this device is...

Re: Need Direction / Key mapping

There's Qjoypad which is a QT-based application so it should work well on Mint KDE. There isn't a package available though, so you would need to build it from the source code tarball. There's a link to the file you need to download and a description of its capabilities here: http://maketecheasier.c...

This is interesting.... For the last few years I've been using Mint. I've never EVER been able to get a game pad that I use for various games and MMO's to work. So I just use windows for gaming. Well, after trolling around Google I wanted to see if anyone made any progress. Didn't really come up wit...

SOLVED: SanDisk SD Card - Unable to mount location

The output from fdisk which you posted above shows that the 4GB SD card does not have a valid partition or filesystem on it. Create a new partition on it and add a filessytem and you should be good to go. Thank you for a straight answer. From this I had to wonder how then could I format it, if Linu...
