Re: mate-volume-control forgets settings

Well, I can confirm one thing at least. Changing the Kernel to 3.14.17 did nothing. I just had two consecutive cases of the same happening as I described in the opening post, though I'm not so sure anymore what's the trigger. Simply unplugging and replugging isn't quite it, as far as I can tell, it ...

Re: mate-volume-control forgets settings

Interesting. I just started the laptop with the headphones unplugged and plugged the headphones in when MATE was fully up. The headphones were muted (but left-right were linked) and main was near the top. When I clicked the unmute button for the headphones it disconnected the headphone stereo output...

Re: mate-volume-control forgets settings

Indeed. :D So far I haven't had the problem of disconnected stereo output sliders for the headphones again, but I noticed something else: Examples: 100% Main, 50% Headphones > unplug headphones, replug headphones > 50% Main, 100% Headphones 40% Main, 50% Headphones > unplug headphones, replug headph...

Re: mate-volume-control forgets settings

I noticed the "stable" in the link, but I followed the instructions in principle, not to the letter :P Anyway, I'll see whether the problem will be fixed by this newer kernel (and hope nothing else gets broken by using a selfcompiled kernel instead of the older one in the debian testing aka jessie r...

Re: mate-volume-control forgets settings

Nvm the comment about it being different now. Just disconnected and then reconnected the headphones some minutes ago and the sound was coming only from the right. Checked mate-volume-control and sure enough, the headphone sides were decoupled again and the left side set to 0. Currently compiling 3.1...

Re: mate-volume-control forgets settings

Tbh, somehow I doubt it's a kernel issue. At least part of what it's doing is probably working as intended and appreciated. It seems to remember two sets of audio settings: One with headphones plugged in and one without, and it automatically switches between them. So far so good, awesome even. Excep...

mate-volume-control forgets settings

Every time I plug my headphones into my laptop, the volume settings get all wonky. That is, Left-Right gets disconnected for Headphones, everything but Main Volume (and Line Boost) gets set to maximum volume, Line Boost and Headphones Left set to 0 and Main Volume near the max. I can set it back to ...

Re: Plugging in Kindle autostarts VLC??

Easy to fix ... Go to Settings/Removable Drives and Media open it up. I would start by checking the settings under the multimedia tab. Probably something in there is making it open. I had one of the small kindles and it was recognizing it as a portable music player and opening banshee everytime I p...

Plugging in Kindle autostarts VLC??

VLC didn't use to start up before when I plugged in my Kindle. Instead, there would open a dialog asking what to do. I used to choose the do-nothing option and all was fine. Until I wanted to get rid of said dialog and ticked the remember-this-option checkbox and chose the do-nothing option again. T...

If my BIOS supports that. I'll check after the in-place upgrade has finished.

Linux Mint 13 Maya - CD ISO?

Is there a CD ISO of Linux Mint 13 somewhere? If not, could one be made? Not everyone has a DVD burner >_>
I don't really care which DE is on it (that can be fixed by pulling the rest with apt) as long as it's a CD iso.

Re: How to get Thunar back as default for firefox?

Thanks for the tip. Unfortunately it didn't work.

Shouldn't it be somewhere else where apt or whatever actually has access to? I mean it used to be thunar before I installed GNOME, and it goes back to using thunar if I remove/purge nautilus.

Re: How to get Thunar back as default for firefox?

While that worked, it is a very dirty workaround. Firefox is essentially still trying to open Nautilus, just that it gets redirected to Thunar now. Basically it's nearly the same as alias nautilus='thunar' If anyone has a solution that isn't akin to that but actually changes firefox's default, pleas...

How to get Thunar back as default for firefox?

Ever since I installed GNOME next to my XFCE desktop on LMDE, when I choose "Open containing folder" on a file in Firefox's downloads list, nautilus gets started instead of Thunar. While that's annoying enough in itself, nautilus has that "nice" habit to keep running even when you close all its wind...
