Re: Linux package structure

I guess I'm still use to the library and framework for Windows programs. Yes, I tried to remove a program, but ended up not doing so that it wouldn't remove critical components of Linux Mint. No biggie, I was just trying to make Linux Mint leaner :D . I see... not anytime soon going to be using user...

Re: Why I am going back to windows

I still do run into frustrating configuration with Linux Mint, but it is a very gratifying os once you get a better understanding of the structure of Linux. Linux has open source alternatives for java and flash - I've found that proprietary software is something you almost entirely give up on Linux....

Linux package structure

Is there a reason Linux's package structure isn't bundled together to free up separated dependency packages for what you are installing? For example, instead of LibreOffice being one main package found in the repository, it has all these packages, e.g. libreoffice-common, libreoffice-writer, etc. Al...

Re: Why is the software manager slow?

Try using a different server. I had the same experience with the Dutch servers..slow, sluggish and lot's of errors. Then i switched to another server (i believe a USA server) and now it's much faster. I'm thinking to switch to a German server since Germany is closer to Holland than America. I'm not...

Why is the software manager slow?

Every time I've used the software manager to check installed programs or find a program to install, transitions are very slow/delayed.

Re: Deleted Linux Mint - Windows 8 won't boot (BOOTMGR missi

Yes, unfortunately I ran the two above commands you posted in the /dev/sda1 and /dev/sda2 partitions. When I look at Gparted, the two partitions (/dev/sda1 & dev/sda2) are in black (broken). I tried running the command as just /dev/sda, but after rebooting, I still get a similar message, "MBR MBR 1...

Re: Deleted Linux Mint - Windows 8 won't boot (BOOTMGR missi

Are you saying that you ran sudo dd if=/usr/lib/syslinux/mbr.bin of=/dev/sda1 and then when that didn't work you tried sudo dd if=/usr/lib/syslinux/mbr.bin of=/dev/sda2 ? Please say no... The correct command (assuming the tutorial is right) would have been sudo dd if=/usr/lib/syslinux/mbr.bin of=/d...
