I can feel the platters spinning and LED on the HDD also is on and stable which means the HDD is ON and usable.

Re: Google Chrome Java Plugin keeps out of Date

Hi

I got the same issue while using chrome for www.speedtest.net, it keeps saying outdate version for the plugin. How to fix this.

NOTE:- I am using Mint Maya as liver user sessions from a bootable USB flash disk and not an installed version, in case that matters.

Any help??

Installing Mint ISO from USB pen drive

Hi

I downloaded "Linux Mint 12 "Lisa" - KDE (32-bit)" which does not have a windows installer in it(like the other version of genome has it). How can i make my 8Gb flash drive to boot the ISO and install it parallel to windows(on a separate partition)?

Thanks
Mark
