Re: Pairing an apple magic mouse...

I got it working, by installing the other bluetooth manager from the software manager. Then I paired the device through that program. After the device was paired, I right clicked the device and selected input service. After this the mouse connected and worked as it should. :)

[Solved] Pairing an apple magic mouse...

I got a magic mouse the other day and lm12 finds the mouse and installs it but can't pair with it. What would cause this?

Re: Can anyone help get surround sound working on my m17x

Thanks for the help mads, but nothing worked. I did get closer though! Here are the results: The option below resulted in a new 4.0 surround option appearing, but only the front 2 speakers worked. Nothing in alsamixer fixed the no rear sound in 4.0 issue. options snd-hda-intel model=dell-m6-amic opt...

Re: Best backup imaging software for mint 12?

Viking... you're correct on the qt4-fsarchiver it's definitely the best one so far. Just a quick question. If I was going to do a back up of my current drive I notice there are two partitions. sda1 and sda5. sda1 is 400+gigs sda5 is 8gigs Do I need to backup of both of these? If I had a drive failur...

Best backup imaging software for mint 12?

I just switched over from windows 7 to linux. I was using acronis true image 12 to do automatic nightly images of my drive on to a NAS.

Is there any software for linux that can do this? If so what would you recommend?

Thanks :D

Re: Can't get bluetooth working.

I got my bluetooth working by booting into windows, googleing "dell 370 wireless drivers", installing this new driver, turning on the bluetooth adaptor, then booting into linux and the device is now working.

This is for an alienware m17x r1. BTW

Can anyone help get surround sound working on my m17x

I have an alienware m17x laptop and I just installed linux mint 12. The sound works fine, but I can't get surround sound to work. I have tried everything to no avail :(

I only have the option for analog stereo.

Anyone know what to do? THANKS!
