Re: Creating a dial-up connection with Linux Mint 13

Congratulations!

What finally did the trick for you and is it the softmodem or USB modem you ended up using?

Re: A plea about passwords

I think you may be short selling Granny. I happen to be one and quite a few of the women using linux that I see/meet on various forums are also in that category. A ton of the men are also in a similar category. Pick an OS known to be user friendly, such as Mint, let her pick a password of her choosi...

Re: Garmin Nuvi GPS

I've had this for several years and totally forgot about the ability to us an SD card. I'll have to get one for sure. I haven't seen any info on the kind of SD card it'll take. It has a pretty wide slot. I'll take it into the store with me and see if the sales person can tell. I am disappointed with...

Re: Garmin Nuvi GPS

I think I finally figured it out last night. I got to the web page where you manually select the tiles you want. They sent me notification that my files were ready but that was overnight. The files waiting are as you have shown. I actually ordered two sets of tiles. One for the entire continuous US ...

Re: Garmin Nuvi GPS

No problem connecting the Garmin Nuvi 255W to the laptop and accessing the drive. The problem is I am lost trying to select a map of the US. My Garmin seems to be able to hold 2G of which 1.4G is currently being used. Has anyone been able to figure it out?

Re: Garmin Nuvi GPS

Does it plot the course/distance/driving time the way the Garmin software does? I'd love to see pictures of it in action.

Re: Shutdown problem

Thank you, Domi. I tried your Fn + F11 trick and it worked! Not only that, but I tried shutting down normally after I rebooted and it worked without the Fn + F11. I am going to assume that it's fixed and will report back if I find out otherwise.

Again, thank you.

Re: Shutdown problem

I'm having this issue, too. Aspire 540-1284. Using Ubuntu 12.10 recently updated. I tell it to shut down and it ends up by taking me back to the log in screen. Just downloaded Mint 13 LTS as considering installing it.

Re: Printer Applet

The applet came back the next time I rebooted.

I cannot find the applet in the add widgets so I can't opt to remove it.

Printer Applet

I wanted to close the printer applet but I accidently clicked on hide and now I keep getting messages about my printer but the icon is hidden.

I really want to uninstall the Printer Applet.

Could someone tell me how to uninstall the hidden printer applet?

Re: Qt 4 Font settings can't be saved

Correction. The new Qt 4 font settings stay in Skype until I shut down the computer and restart. That is when the settings reset to the orginal settings.

Qt 4 Font settings can't be saved

I have gone into Qt 4, changed the font size, and saved multiple times. For some reason, after I close Skype and reopen later, the new font settings are gone. Has anyone else noticed this? Is there a workaround? RE: Qt 4 ver 4.5.0 in Mint KDE CE Edit: If I posted this in the wrong place, please feel...

Can't D/L from gmail in FF in Mint KDE 7 (Solved)

I just installed Mint KDE 7. When I try to download attachments in my gmail (in FF), the download screen doesn't open and I can't find any download. In other words, downloading files from my gmail in Firefox isn't working. Not happening. Has anyone had this problem and found out how to fix it?

Re: Skype audio - impossible

I hate to report this but Skype audio on my Mint 5 Elyssa is impossible. I have set and reset the settings and they will not stay set and that has me upset! I have resigned myself to using only chat with Skype on Mint on my lappy. If I want to use the audio with Skype on my lappy I will reboot in XP...

I was able to edit the file doing as you suggested. The final combination that worked for me was: From the Mint Menu> Applications> Preferences> Sound> Devices: I chose Pulse for all the sound playback items. For sound capture, I chose ALSA. For Device, I chose HDA Intel (Alsa Mixer). In the scroll ...
