Re: Suspend and resume with a ASUS M5A88-M motherboard

Hi, I've had the exact same problem (on Asus k52je) and it drove me nuts. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to find a solution for MInt, but I did find a solution for Ubuntu 12.04. Who knows, it might work for Mint as well... ****Two things though**** * First link is the bug report which led me to the Se...

Black screen after closing lid hibernate-possible solution?

Hello everyone, My computer is Asus k52j, I installed the ATI proprietary drivers (it's relevant, because I thought that caused my problem back when I was running the 32 bit Gnome version). I have a problem, to which I found a solution online that I am sharing here. The solution is for Ubuntu 10.10 ...

Re: LM 12 KDE Wireless-Blindness

I have a similar problem... My system does not recognize wireless networks at all, except for when I connect through a wire **EDIT** The problem isn't as I described it. Similar, though... I *can* find available networks, but I need to go to the wireless settings and scan for them "manually". Then, ...

Re: most basic of questions...

What version of Mint are you running? For the Gnome-based main editions: gedit /var/log/Xorg.0.log .... I then pressed tab and twice again to see my options. After that, I added 0 and pressed tab again to get the full gedit /var/log/Xorg.0.log http://kevin108.com/files/images/forums/linux/tabs.png ...

Re: most basic of questions...

So / var/log/Xorg.0.log, means that it knows that the directory "var" is going to be in the root of the drive. "var" and "log" are both di...

If you use an HDMI cable to connect to an HD TV, the HDMI audio setting is appropriate. Otherwise, it's not. In Sound Preferences, in the Output tab, you can try different "connectors."
