Re: adobe flash 11.2 will not install

OK thanks, thats what I keep reading, I was not sure 11.2 is in package manager, but fails to install. 11.1 works fine I just have to click the accept all the time.

I really like Firefox. I hope there will be an alternate flash player one day. :roll:

adobe flash 11.2 will not install

I can not get flash to update to 11.2. Package manager fails with IP not found. I am on 11.1 and firefox keeps giving me warnings to update. What am I missing? Has anyone installed 11.2?

Chromium Browser works fine.

Re: Keyboard died, now no bootup with new keyboard

Did you try starting with your mint install disk? If you can get it running, I think running initramfs might reconfigure startup for usb keyboard. I do not remember syntax, as I usually use 'Boot-Repair' ( https://sourceforge.net/projects/boot-repair-cd/files/ ) which may also fix your problem Also...

Re: Samba: WinXP gets "access denied" from LMDE, prints anyw

I used your how to Altair, but still had issues with windows finding the linux with IP. It would find the printer. But say access denied or just not print. It would print ONCE in win 7. Then never again. So I added host files to both of my Windows boxs. Linux is the print server. I used the new http...

Well mine went from one windows box printing to none. So I setup CUPs and added host files to both windows boxs and now everything works perfect. No users or guests defined on linux. I did this instead: The best way is to use "Connect to a printer on the Internet or on a home or office network&...
