I've seen multiple tutorials but it's still never worked. I hoped someone here was able to help. Oh well, doesn't matter now as my Debian install self-destructed from the latest round of updates.

Sharing over network from LMDE to XP?

The latest version of the Mint main edition doesn't play nice with my old machine but LMDE runs great. I've got an XP box in the living room running my HTPC but back here in the office my desktop has the bigger hard drive, so I store my media on it. I just need to be able to share a few directories ...

Re: Mint 14 and Mint-Flashplugin

If you're using Firefox, try the Flash-Aid plug-in. It has a couple other versions of Flash you can try.

Apt-get verified nemo-share is installed. Haven't gotten back on the HTPC to check things over yet though.

Re: How do I share my NTFS partition over my network w/ Mint

Personal File Sharing only shares the Public folder in your home directory and really doesn't work with Windows. Have you tried this instead: Simple File Sharing in Mint : http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=42&t=23169 I have that thread bookmarked but I was concerned it would no longer wor...

How do I share my NTFS partition over my network w/ Mint 14?

I haven't done this since Mint 11 and obviously some things have changed. I have a HTPC in the living room running XBMC on XP. (Only because I can never get the Linux version to run smoothly with my particular hardware.) My media is on an NTFS partition on my Mint 14 Cinnamon office computer / media...

Re: Better than Google, looking for best search engine

What about AltaVista? :lol:

I've tried the other search engines. I used Dogpile for years when it was new but Google has always given me the best results. http://mycroft.mozdev.org/ is how I add it back to my Mint Firefox.

Re: nvidia driver install.

Don't use the ones you downloaded unless you know how to recompile your kernel.

Ctrl + Alt + T

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install nvidia-current nvidia-settings

Re: Access to a crashed Linux Live USB from Windows XP?

You could try http://www.diskinternals.com/linux-reader/ but it's read-only. Your best bet it to use a working Linux machine or to get another thumb drive to make another Live session, boot it and use it to access your failed setup.

Re: moving on from Linux Mint 11

Mint 11 was the first version I used and one I stuck with for quite some time. Mint 12 definitely had some growing pains associated with the initial split from Gnome 3 / Unity. By Mint 13, Cinnamon and MATE were mature enough to be usable by anyone and have only improved since! I loved Mint 11 but I...
