Missing icons on Mate-panel on LM 20

I have found that Mate-panel on LM 20 does not show short-cut icons like Thunderbird Mail when the PC is re-booted. It seems that it's some kind of access problem since they appears if same short-cut icons are on desktop - it's also best known workaround solution. Restarting mate-panel does not solv...

Ubuntu has poor update support on OpenSSL

I just accidentally found that Ubuntu is not providing update on Open SSL, so that is same situation for LM too. For example, latest OpenSSL version today is 1.1.1 and I'm getting this: $ openssl version OpenSSL 1.0.2g 1 Mar 2016 $ cat /etc/upstream-release/lsb-release DISTRIB_ID=Ubuntu DISTRIB_RELE...

Does the lower sound only happen with the program you're using to listen to music?

Try another player. See what happens.
No difference, tested also playing recorded file on phone. Audacity also shows that file is about 7 % longer when importing original and recorded file.

Re: Voices Deeper Than Normal

Does the BIOS in your system have HPET support? If YES, try enabling for a test. If already enabled, try disable. You'll need to recapture the song to test. Edit: Any chance you're capturing audio from Youtube? I ask because you show a sampling rate of 48000 on the posted image and Youtube uses 441...

Re: Voices Deeper Than Normal

I do have same problem, song lasts longer and voice tone is lower. I tested Audacity by recording a song on my computer (length 3:25) and Audacity recorded it as 3:40. The difference is about 7 %. Attached is screen capture of original and recorded file. Complete removal and and reinstallation of Au...

Security of Firefox [header updated, solved]

I found some unknown secured connections (cloudfront.net) servers in the FF 34 and deeper analysis shown that they are related on mint-search-addon, provided via the update system, with FF 34. The add-on is claimed to "Enhances the results given by Google". The questions are what for that is there a...

Re: Exaile nettiradio ei toimi

Tämä vastaus taitaa tulla myöhään, mutta käynnistämällä terminaalista komennolla exaile näet tarkemmin mitä ohjelma ilmoittaa. Sitten pakettienhallinasta voit lisätä tarvittavat paketit.

Re: Kernel Vulnerability Affects Ubuntu 12.04 LTS and Mint 1

Enable level 4 and level 5 updates in MintUpdate sources. Regular kernel updates are level 5... current 3.2 kernel is 3.2.0-56.86 (= 3.2.51 mainline) so your 3.2.0-23 is really a lot outdated. Checked but can't see new kernel, only kernel headers (linux-libc-dev 3.2.0-55.85), see more [url]http://p...

Re: mint 12 can't see other partitions, disk manager crashes

You might have a identifier conflict on fstab due to multiple drives. I had similar problem and recognized that fstab does not update identifiers correctly if second hdd is added. I solved it by modifying fstab, using a UUID method instead of /dev/sda. The UUID method is more robust way to detect di...
