Re: A Mint Version of Ubuntu Studio?

lagagnon thanks for your help. One would have to install the rt kernel as well. I was just thinking it would be nice to just download a dvd size .iso and install it. And it would be even better if it had as much software as OpenArtist instead of just the apps in Ubnuntu Studio.

One can dream.

A Mint Version of Ubuntu Studio?

As a long time user of Linux Mint I was wondering if there will ever be a Mint version of Ubuntu Studio? There's not much out there for us creative types for 2D and 3D graphics and composing music. A Mint version would be a lot better than a standard Ubuntu version.

Re: Can anyone resolve my resolution problem?

Thankx for the help Fornhamfred. I tried everything but noting works for 1280 x 1024. None of the new versions of distros seem the be keeping the old driver I need. That's ok though because Puppy and PCLOS still do the high resolution with my ancient video card. My computer is so old it's powered by...

Can anyone resolve my resolution problem?

I have an ATI ALL-IN-WONDER 128 PRO video card made in 2001. It looks like LM 7 has the same problem doing 1280 x 1024 that Ubuntu 9.04 has. Is there anyway I can install the old xorg driver for my old video card? Otherwise I'm stuck at just 1152 x 864. May it's time to buy a new video card. Or, may...

I've tried everything I could find on the web and nothing works. I'm putting this on the back burner, setting it aside, relegating it and in general getting on with more pressing matters. Thanks for your help Husse.

Re: KDE 4 Folder View

Mint 6 will be based on Kubuntu 8.10 with KDE 4 I bet. If you can't wait install Kubuntu 8.10. I used to have Ubuntu 8.04 installed with KDE 3 and when I upgraded online to 8.10 KDE 3 was replaced with KDE 4. I'm going to keep using Mint 5 until KDE 4 is finished.

Re: Multisession DVD+R can't be read

Thanks for the help Husse. I tried Brasero and Konqueror and root Krusader and they can't see the files on the DVD. That's 3.5 GB of things I can't replace. It's at times like this I think about buying a Mac but then I remember how much they cost and I stay with Linux.

Multisession DVD+R can't be read

I made a multisession DVD+R with k3b. I had to reinstall Mint since I made the DVD. I need to put more data files on the DVD but although k3b can see the DVD as a multisession DVD it can't load any files or folders from the DVD. In other words k3b can't see the files and folders on the DVD. Is there...

Progress in KDE 4 I just tried the live cd of openSUSE 11.1 beta 5 with KDE 4.1.3. Kubuntu has released the KDE 4.1.3 update in their backports. KDE 4 now has the “hide” feature in it's desktop panel. Not having the hide feature was one of my major objections to using KDE 4 as an everyday desktop. R...

I searched the CD with “mint” and Synaptic installed all the Mint stuff. I also installed KDE 3.x just to see if it would work. It does. I used KDE to set ...
