[OK]LM12: How can I configure a second UMTS-Internet-Stick?

I had no problem to configure the first UMTS-Internet-Stick using the Network-applet in the panel. Now I want to configure an additional UMTS-Internet-Stick from a different provider, but in the dialog of the GNOME3-Network-Manager there is no "Add"-Button like I knew from Ubuntu with GNOM...

Re: [Solved] LM12: No startup sound

@ Majkl: I'm really no expert to this case ... I'm some kind of try and error ;-) 1) The deafult content of my ~/.config/autostart/libcanberra-login-sound.desktop was: [Desktop Entry] Type=Application Name=GNOME Login Sound Comment=Plays a sound whenever you log in Exec=/usr/bin/canberra-gtk-play --...

Re: LM12 - Too many startup -sounds

This sounds myserious. I don't know the reason why, but try this: 1) Move all audio-files from /usr/share/sounds to a backup-directory (In my case, there are 3 audio-files in this directory) 2) Verify, which audio-file ist the right one (I mean the one with the extracted part) 3) Rename this file to...

Thx to remoulder once again! :D Litte note: The tip Simply right mouse a file of that type in nautilus and select Properties then Open With. doesn't work all the time. I found textfiles (e.g. *.desktop -files in the directory ~/.config/autostart ) that don't offer a dialog like " Open With &qu...

Re: LM12: Nautilus: Open File with Gedit in the Context Menu

@remoulder: Thx for that tip! :D I hope no troubles will occur, when I associate all those textfiles with Gedit. I'll see. But: What I forgot to mention in my first posting: I also miss the possibility to open a textfile by means of the context menu as root (= gksu gedit <Path> ). Any idea how I can...

(OK)LM12: Nautilus: Open File with Gedit in the Context Menu

In former Ubuntu-installations I was used to mark a file in Nautilus > right click > Scripts > Open File with Texteditor. I can remember that I used the tool Ubuntu-Tweak do add this script to the context menu of Nautilus. Since I use Linux Mint 12, I miss this feature. I still have the scriptfile i...

[Solved] LM12: No startup sound

I installed Linux Mint 12 using a separate home-partiton that was formerly used with Ubuntu 10.10. When my Linux Mint 12 is finishing booting and showing the desktop (GNOME-Shell) I'm missing the startup sound . I guess it should be the file /usr/share/sounds/linuxmint-login.wav. The dialog for the ...

Re: Mint 12: No "Recent Items" in the Overlay

My assumption seems to be true. This Blog ( http://askubuntu.com/questions/82584/prevent-gnome-shells-dash-from-listing-recent-items ) says: " Gnome-shell uses recently-used and not Zeitgeist to display your recent items ." And actually it is the file ~/.local/share/recently-used.xbel that...

Re: Mint 12: No "Recent Items" in the Overlay

I guess what's the reason (but I don't know if this is actually the reason why!): Before LM12 I had Ubuntu 10.10 installed on my Computer - with a separate home-partition . In former times I disabled the feature "Show recently used files" using the Ubuntu-Tweak-Tool. When I installed LM12 ...

Re: Mint 12: No "Recent Items" in the Overlay

No, I forgot not to type. I once again tested now: I saved a new odt-file with the name Test.odt. When I type a 't' in the searchbox, the overlay only shows:
- Applications
- Settings
- Places And Devices

(I use the german version. Sorry if the english names above are not correct).

[Solved] Mint 12: No "Recent Items" in the Overlay

I can't see the "Recent Items" (= Recently used Files) in the Overlay-View of the GNOME-Shell. Also the directory ~/.local/share/recently-used.xbel is always empty. Is it disabled by Linux Mint 12? If yes, is there a way to enable the function (e.g. using DConf-Editor)? P.S: I attach a scr...
