Re: home partition full and i don't know why

It's likely there is going to be something repeatedly feeding errors. So see if you can post some of the content of the new file. You can open it with a text editor. Millions upon millions of lines like this 13/06/2013 08:40:42 PM Authentication deferred - ignoring client message 13/06/2013 08:40:4...

Re: home partition full and i don't know why

Install and run "baobab" to help break down your home directory further. Have it "Scan Home", after which a model will display on the right showing which folders are using the most space. Here's a screenshot. Notice it says, "Total file system capacity: 989.9 GB (used: 906....

I've done it that way, too. Doesn't seem to stick.

Re: How to force resolv.conf changes to "stick"?

Are you editing it as 'root'?.... :wink: gksudo gedit /etc/resolv.conf Yes, I am. The changes are saved until I reboot. I do not know if takes a single reboot or multiple before the change, or maybe it is when I connect to a different wifi system. The nameserver changes from (my edits) 8.8.8.8 to 1...

How to force resolv.conf changes to "stick"?

Hi,

I searched the forums but didn't see this exact question answered. I also googled it. When I edit /etc/resolv.conf with custom nameservers, the changes eventually revert. How can I make them "sticky"?

thanks in advance,

how to disable Expo?

Hi,

Is there any way to completely disable Expo? I recently moved a friend to Linux from Windows, and it's confusing the heck out of her.

thanks.

how to completely uninstall xubuntu-desktop?

Hi, I installed Xubuntu on Linux Mint 13 ( sudo apt-get install xubuntu-desktop ) and am trying to remove it. sudo apt-get remove xubuntu-desktop doesn't remove everything. For example, the login screen is still not the Linux Mint 13 login screen. There are a lot of packages that weren't removed (fo...

Re: How to fix external monitor issues e.g. w/ Intel Integra

The non obvious thing to do is this: Move the external monitor to the left of the laptop screen. Temporarily turning both displays "on" within the GUI may help get things unstuck. This saved me. Unbeliveable. I consider myself an advanced user and could not find this. How would a regular ...

Re: How to pin apps to panel / taskbar?

You can do this in MATE. If you installed from the dvd version, logout, click the gear icon next to your name in the login manager, and select MATE from the dropdown menu. Then login. It's a little ugly at first but you can change your theme to whatever you want, such as the themes from LM 11/10/9....

How to pin apps to panel / taskbar?

Hi,

Linux Mint 12. I've googled up and down, left and right. I've tried all sorts of things on my mine. How do I pin an application to the panel / taskbar / system tray? This was so easy in prior Mint versions (right click -> Add To Panel). Now seems impossible!

thanks,
orange_roughy.

Installing over Ubuntu

Hi,

I have Ubuntu 10.10 installed. I want to replace it with Linux Mint 12. But I don't want to lose my user files/documents. Is there a way to keep those? Will I lose them if I install Mint?

thanks,
