Re: Linux Mint 17 Desktop Sharing Vino Settings not working

I followed all the suggestions but turning off encryption that made vnc work for me. Many thanks. New install of 17 and vnc from 2nd 17 should work but didn't.

Re: Partial kernel v 17 installed.

Re-installed kernel 3.0.0.17 and everything is good, forgot to mention my pcmcia card which is also working now. Don't know why a partial install was made, but is was on an existing Ubuntu install. Now I need to see if kernel v 17 will install on my desktop which was a clean install of Mint12 but on...

Re: Partial kernel v 17 installed.

Linux LxMint12 3.0.0-12-generic #20-Ubuntu SMP Fri Oct 7 14:50:42 UTC 2011 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

kernel 3.0.0.12 is ok. ver 17 is an incomplete install. No /lib/modules/3.0.0.12-generic found and causes my touchad and mouse not to work. How can I re-instrall kernel 3.0.0.17?

Partial kernel v 17 installed.

Installed Linux Mint 12 over Ubuntu 11.10. Mint boots in to kernel 3.0.0-17 by default but kernel v 17 is only partially installed, the headers. This was causing me problems. Using startup manager I boot into v 12 and things work as expected. My question is should I have kernel v 17 completely insta...

Re: Touchpad stops working in Mint 12

After exhaustive research stumbled on my answer. Mint was using kernel 3.0.0-17 but there was no /lib/modules/3.0.0.17-generic. There was a /lib/modules/3.0.0-12-generic. So using startup manager I booted with the 3.0.0-12 kernel and mouse and touchpad work perfectly. Seems like a big error, should ...

Re: Touchpad stops working in Mint 12

Would like to know how I can verify this. I have done most of the suggestions to activate touchpad but no luck. Any mor...
