My HDD does not have an icon on the desktop after Linux start. However, it appears as drive in Nemo and after clicking on it, its icon sits on the desktop. What do you mean by My HDD does not have an icon on the desktop ??? You mean a link to your home folder? However, it appears as drive in Nemo Y...

Re: Update Message - Meaning?

You got that PPA from here: https://launchpad.net/~do-core/+archive/ubuntu/ppa??? Take a good look under the pull-down menu Published in: and you will notice that trusty isn't in that list. This means that the PPA won't work for Mint 17. Better is to remove it to avoid any problems in the future. Mi...

Re: Installing Intel Linux Graphics

Thanks for your message. I actually followed this guide. I think it's really good but it doesn't help me with this error. I though it was a driver issue, but looking closer to your screenshots it is a version conflict between some files. I know just 1 solution for updating those files and that is a...

Re: Adobe Flash and Firefox Outdated, won't update
