[SOLVED} what is the mate repository url? reinstall mate?

Hi all. I am using Mint 13 Maya(LTS) 64 bit. I had recently uninstalled a package(libxml2), and that caused mate to disappear, and the system started booting into the command line when I rebooted. So I tried to use apt-get(first time I've used it) to reinstall mate. Here are some of the commands tha...

Re: Controlling screen brightness on laptop.

As far as I am aware, the fn keys won't work for brightness. Also rebooting or putting the laptop to sleep kills the session, and that's why the brightness returns to default. There is no fix for this problem, as far as I am aware.

[solved] lightning calendar app for Thunderbird

Hi all.

I can't find the lighting app in Software Manager. Is this something that needs to be downloaded from the Mozilla site? If so, how easy would it be to integrate with Thunderbird in Mint?

Thanks in advance.

I turned on my machine this morning, and all the icons have disappeared, so I have to switch programs using ALT + TAB. I noticed today that the app panels on the taskbar are on the right side of the 3 dots(next to the Menu button). Before they were adjacent to the menu button. Don't know if that mak...

upgrading gcc?

Hi folks. I have gcc 4.6.3 installed, but gcc 4.7.1 has recently been released. In the Software Manager, I can see some gcc packages (gcc, gcc-4.6, gcc-4.6-base etc...) and some gcc libraries(libgcc1, libgomp1 etc...). I can also see gcc-4.7-base. So how do I upgrade gcc? I know there installed apps...

Re: I need to stop my display 4from sleeping

Make sure that "blank screen" is not set as the screensaver. If I am not mistaken, "blank screen" is the default.

Re: Itel Atom CPU/motheboard and Linux

What if you plug in a full size or half size video card from a known manufacturer? Then you can bypass the onboard graphics and solve the issue correct? Option two would be to pick up a board from another manufacturer which would have the CPU I want but a different GPU. Issue is that the only N2800...
