Re: Dual booting on separate drives with Windows 10

My plan is to disconnect all other drives, plug in the new SSD and install mint from a USB stick, once it's installed I'll plug the Windows 10 SSD back in and select which drive to boot from via Bios/F11 (don't use efi btw). Will this go smoothly? Don't disconnect the hard drive that Windows is ins...

Re: HBOGo stopped playing?!??

For anyone interested HBOGo now has Chromecast support. I've now gone this route, and it works flawless. For those that don't know the Chromecast is a small device about the size of of a flash drive that plugs into an HDMI port on your TV. It then connects through your home wifi, and you control it ...

Re: HBOGo stopped playing?!??

I can confirm that HBO GO isn't working on Mint 15 for me either. I'll tell you what. I love Mint, and have been using it for 5 years, but I finally realized that for a home theater computer Linux just isn't worth bothering with. There is always some hack or work around that needs to be done. I gave...

Re: how to install a program onto a specific drive?

When I first came from the the Windows universe years ago it was difficult for me to grasp that it isn't quite as easy to specify a program location in Linux as it is in Windows. What I later came to realize though is that for the most part it is entirely unnecessary. For the exceptions I use symbol...

Re: Multimedia Repo Help

Ok I'm a bit confused on what addition you are now using. Since you are not using LMDE I will assume you are now on either MATE or Cinnamon. If that is the case this may work for you assuming the repo you add is Ubuntu based. First add your repo to sources.list, and run sudo apt-get update You will ...

Re: [Olivia] No sound via HDMI

What is your sound output device set to? If you are running the Cinnamon version click on the sound icon on the panel, and select output device. You should see a couple of choices. Back in the old days I used to install gnome-alsamixer, run it, and enable IEC958 to get to get pass through audio. Tha...

Re: Fixing recursive fault but reboot is needed.

It's a bug in the kernel that effects some hardware. Installing a newer kernel from the mainline will fix this. I had do this on my system, and it worked for me. Here is a link for the kernel that I used.

Re: Can't install mint 15. Lose video after count down scree

I've always used nomodeset to get a new system to boot for the first time after the initial install. Once booted you can install the correct proprietary driver, and from there you are all set.

Re: For a beginner user which one is better: Mate or Cinnamo

During installation you have to choose the third option when asked where you want to do the install. I believe the option is "something else". This will allow you to manually choose the partition. As for Cinnamon vs. MATE, I switched to Cinnamon when it first came out. It was very hard for...

Re: Installing Ruby Ripper - Mint 13 Cinammon

Well I am glad the install worked out even if the program ultimately wasn't what you needed. You can always try sound-juicer instead. It rips pretty quickly.

Re: Installing Ruby Ripper - Mint 13 Cinammon

Ok let's try this a different way. Open your terminal and enter this command. sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list Your actual sources file is going to open up so you can edit it using the program gedit. You will see something that looks similar to this. You are looking for the getdeb respository lines....

Re: Installing Ruby Ripper - Mint 13 Cinammon

Version 0.6.2-1 is available in the getdeb repositories. Mint ships with this repository already included in the software sources, just disabled. All you have to do is go into software sources, and enable it. After that you can install rubyripper using apt-get on the command line, or graphically in ...

Re: slow upload speed on local network

I have a gigabit home network, and since installing Mint 13 transfer speeds between my PC, and my server have dropped to less than 1 MB/sec. I used to get 25 MB/sec, and I can't figure out what happened.
