Re: [solved] Nadia - resolvconf not using DNS server from DH

What a piece of buggy, poorly tested *buntu junk. Horrible change... :x :roll: :evil: For people fighting with this non-working nonsense: - /etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf - comment out the "dns=dnsmasq" line (put # before this) - /etc/resolvconf/resolv.conf.d/tail - make the file empty - re...

Re: Mint-X themes - white text w/ gtk3.4 [SOLVED, patch incl

I also reckon that the patch definitely improves, but there's still something slightly wrong even in Mint-X. So grab the master version from github as linked above. Still not the same? Sorry, go complain to Gnome folks upstream. People usually have better things to do than repairing absolutely poin...

Re: Mint-X themes - white text w/ gtk3.4 [SOLVED, patch incl

Gnome 3.4 goes together with GTK+ 3.4 :) so the update affects even XFCE or LXDE - if you run any GTK+3 apps in it :) Well, tracking Debian unstable, so... :) I can't help but post a quote from this blog post : I’ll apologize in advance for the sarcasm here..

Re: HOWTO: Install Oracle Java automatically and easily

As for the GPG key, the original instructions are just enough. If this does not work for you for whatever weird reason, use an alternative keyserver as advised at http://www.duinsoft.nl/packages.php

About Ubuntu - no idea, not using and do not ever plan on using.

This is extremely annoying, see screenshot. What is up with this? :x (Using Xfce but that does not matter, even LightDM looks like this.)

Re: Timeouts when connecting 2 Mint laptops via crossover ca

In my experience, using a normal (not crossover) cable appears to be a better choice with recent Gbit NICs (and even with some 100Mbit ones). Since usually you will not have much luck with detecting auto MDI/MDI-X capabilities of a NIC via ethtool, you just need to try and see for yourself. (Also, t...

Re: No 5.1 Surround in Mint 12

Considering that Pulseaudio is being used, invoking alsamixer does not sound exactly like the way to go here... Try with pavucontrol instead.

Re: installing Mint LXDE over Linpus Lite

I was not talking about your BIOS boot menu - I am talking about your GRUB boot menu. If you get a BIOS boot menu instead when pressing Esc then kindly wait a bit longer before pressing the key!!!

Re: installing Mint LXDE over Linpus Lite

Could someone please now advise me how to get Linpus to boot? ESC only gets me to the boot menu. I need advice on what to do from there. F12 only gives me a selection of IDE0 or network boot. Uhm, how about using the arrow keys to select "Linpus Linux RCD" from the menu and pressing enter? That is ...

Re: "Recently used" configuration?

Probably does not search hidden dirs (like .local) by default, or at all.

P.S. Need to ask GTK devs why this stopped working. Used to work just fine.

Seriously. Wipe out the disk and install ONE OS there.

OK, it boots to Linpus. Change the default to 1 instead of 0. Still boots to Linpus? Sorry, then you are clearly editing wrong file.
