Re: mint 17 xfce, atheros ar9565, ath9k, wi-fi unreliable

Try right clicking on your panel.... add applets to the panel. Look for "network manager" in the list and add to panel. If it shows a green dot that means it is installed, but may not be showing in the panel. You should see 2 tabs. There is a search box there to make your search easier. T...

I run LinuxMint XFCE, installed the latest few months ago. The wifi network indicator has disappeared from the panel. How to restore it? There are no problems with the card/drivers, because I still can connected to the home wifi network, as it was remembered. Thanks for your help. I have "solv...

Re: Way To Much Bloat In LXDE CE

I actually felt very comfortable with Mint LXDE8 choices, more comfortable than with other LXDE linuxes, such as Lubuntu, sidux with LXDE, or Arch with LXDE which I tried to build myself. For my purposes it is the best LXDE linux, and it may replace on my main notebook the standard Mint (as it has a...

Re: Progress...

I am also a happy user of LXDE Mint 8 since its beta, and would like to help testing the new version. I tried betas of Lubuntu 4.04, but I found Mint LXDE 8 from the box much more usable (and also familiar to me, a long term Mint user). LXDE edition is now a primary OS I am using on my second ultrap...

Re: Linux Mint 6 Fluxbox RC1 Bug Thread

I made fresh install, update & upgrade to make sure my problems are reproducible. Unfortunately, Fn-Up to change the brightness locks the keyboard, as described above. The output, as requested: $ lsmod Module Size Used by nls_utf8 9856 2 nls_cp437 13696 2 vfat 18816 2 fat 57376 1 vfat i915 38144...

shane,
I am using external USB optical drive. Maybe this fact makes the difference for Brasero? Will post the rest later.

Re: Linux Mint 6 Fluxbox RC1 Bug Thread

Maybe it helps to localize the problem with the locked keyboard after I hit Fn-Up to change the brightness:
the problem disappears after I go to suspend to RAM with Fn-Esc (still works in this locked up situation) and wake up.

Re: Linux Mint 6 Fluxbox RC1 Bug Thread

I have installed the latest brasero 0.9.1 deb package and librasero-media0 it comes with. I could not see any improvements with burning CD rewritables. The same problem with a mounted CD persists. I have to unmount it manually, and then brasero still doesn't provide me with the option to blank it or...

Re: Linux Mint 6 Fluxbox RC1 Bug Thread

I tried to comment the lines in ~/.fluxbox/startup as you pointed out, but it did not help (both before and after rebooting). In fact, I have established that the actual problem is not that CPU usage grows to 100% after I try to regulate the brightness with Fn-Up (which is the only way on this noteb...

Re: Linux Mint 6 Fluxbox RC1 Bug Thread

I don't know if it is bug or a hardware specific glitch. I was not using other flavors of Mint on the notebook I am testing Fluxbox Mint now. Strangely, (sometimes?) when I am trying to regulate brightness, the CPU usage suddenly blows to 100% (60% firefox, 40% thunar), one cannot kill FM window, ca...

The workoround for me was: install xfburn, sudo umount /media/cdrom0, blank cd-rw using xfburn, open file to burn in xfburn, burn. Brasero did not want to bu...
