Re: Can I VM to Windows 10 (already installed) from Mint?

Hi, i used to do that with Windows XP. There you could define different Hardware profiles in windows to boot to. You could create a new HW profile within windows and use the physical disk as HD for your VM. When booting from VMplayer, select the new HW profile and it will install the correct drivers...

Re: how visualize song lyrics in Banshee?

Sorry, I'm currently running Debian Testing and have LMDE2 installed as well but not the Ubuntu based Mint version. What I gave you were the package names of Debian but I assumed the Ubuntu base is the same. I have banshee 2.6.2 installed (on Debian Testing though) with the lyrics extension v2.4. Ch...

Re: WINE program icons

Hi,

I had the same problem under Gnome Shell. It seems to be a issue of the icon theme. Try to switch the theme and see if the correct icons are displayed. I'm currently using the Numix icon theme which works fine. Also works under Cinnamon.

Cheers!

Re: Logitech Unifying Technology compatibility

Hi, Maybe that's because the keyboard and mouse have already been paired. I'm thinking that if you have to replace either keyboard or mouse, then it won't work. You have to somehow pair the new device to the same dongle. Hmm, I don't remember pairing mouse / keyboard / dongle. But I also run this s...

Re: Logitech Unifying Technology compatibility

Hi,

I have a Logitech K340 keyboard and a Logitech mouse on 1 usb dongle working just fine! Don't know what model the mouse is, but I seem to remember mouse and keyboard came as a set.

Re: Experiences using wine/Office2010 on Mint 17?

If you want to activate MSO via a KMS server, there are special intructions available how to do that: http://www.codeweav...

Re: A good PDF reader?

IF (big if here:) it has to be Foxit Reader: the latest windows version runs fine under wine or at least under Codeweavers crossover version. I use it if I have to make annotation or comments to a pdf file.

Re: Midori Browser

looks like Midori just tries to access a local file of your installation which is not there.

Just type in a URL directly, e.g.
linuxmint.com

It's probably working just fine.

No, but I also did not dig to extensively as I had a working solution with the start-up script. Motivation was low to find a proper solution to it :)

Hi, you might want to limit the resource (CPU and IO) that rsync is using when doing the back, e.g. nice -n 19 ionice -c2 -n7 rsync ....

Hi TaraMK, I'm not sure if I can help you, but I will try to answer your questions to the best of my knowledge. One thing one hase to keep in mind: my system is a bit of a hybrid system. In particular the gnome 3.8 installation is (probably) not vanilla LMDE. I puller gnome3.8 from the debian repos ...
