Re: Poll: Desktop environments

While I'm running KDE/Dwm these days, I would love to see Cinnamon mature to install it on my Arch box :)

Re: How to persist my KDE Activity organization across login

Since this is a specific KDE SC-related post you should try posting it in KDE SC forums as is sure you will get a lot of aid there in a snap ;)

Re: Tengo un problema con la interfaz grafica

Por lo que describís yo lo asocio más a alguna incompatibilidad de tu hardware con Kwin o a algún bug del release de Mint. El Mint 12 KDE SC que tenés instalado es el fina...

Re: livecd boot hanging

Wait! Please correct me if I'm wrong but it seems your mobo have ATI-integrated chipset while you added an external nVidia. Did you try booting without the nVidia card? There may well be an irq conflict here - sometimes adding "irqpoll" without quotes to the kernel boot line helps. If that...

Re: livecd boot hanging

Thanks for your reply. The bios of this machine is rather limited and there weren't any suitable options to disable those things. The drives are set to IDE mode (as opposed to RAID or AHCI). Yeah, usually laptops's (which are brand-computers) BIOSes are locked-down in contrast to that of MOBOs you ...

Re: LinuxMint 12 WiFi fails when using WPA

Hi msx_, Thanks for the post. My router's SSID is not hidden and I've tried whatever kernel is on the latest Mint12 live cd/dvd, I don't remember the exact kernel version other than that it was 3.0.x. I've also tried Ubuntu 11.10 which I believe was also 3.0.x and even the latest Ubuntu 12.04 relea...

Re: LinuxMint 12 WiFi fails when using WPA

Hey, is your network stealthed by chance? Some time ago I found that I had trouble connecting to my router [D-Link DIR 600] if the wireless net is hidden (AKA BSSID or "hidden SSID broadcast"). Also, which kernel are you using, Mint's stock? I think it's about 0.16 now. Although there seem...

Re: I can´t update of install anything

Never stumbled-by this error but it seems a repo update isn't complete. On Debian-based distros you can try this to resolve packages problems (allways as r00t):
# dpkg --configure -a
# apt-get install -f
# apt-get update

(optional)
# apt-get upgrade

Please report back ;-)

Re: livecd boot hanging

Did you try deactivating acpi and such? Also, why not make a full MEMTEST of both your computer and -booting from another LiveCD/DVD- your graphics card? This type of glitches are rather hard to track down so you must do a full step-by-step debug to find what's happening. I hope you can finally inst...
