lovefilm-desktop videos capture the cursor

I had a look on google but didn't find much, albeit I may not have looked hard enough, but anyhoo... I've installed lovefilm-desktop on a copy of Linux Mint 15 and the application works fine, except for the fact that when I click on the video controls, e.g. to select a point in the film, change the ...

Re: Unable to permanently delete file.

It's a corrupted file, and the OS is having trouble working what to do with it's screwed upness. Repartitioning generally works.

Re: Sound above 100 percent

I believe it is raising it past the recommended for your system. Past 100% you start getting distortion and a general loss of sound quality.

Do you know the make of your wireless chip? Could be a driver issue.

Re: Battery status unavailable

Right, the battery applet for docky reports the amount left, accurately as far as I can tell, but the battery appindicator doesn't.

Unfortunately the solution for the subwoofer had no effect, as it doesn't appear to be recognised in the first place.

Battery status unavailable

Hey guys, got a few problems with Linux Mint 10 on a HP Pavilion dv7 4020-sa. The main problem is that the battery status is unavailable at any time, with the indicator merely telling me it is 'estimating' and does so forever more. If there is a fix for this, great, if not, I'll report this as a bug...

0 A.D.

So, who has tried this game? I tried tonight with a mate of mine, and it was pretty fun. Built on the same ideas as AoE et al, it does pretty well so far. Lack of an AI makes single player a bit pointless atm, but multiplayer works well. For an open source game, I reckon it is definitely one of the ...

Re: HOw do know if my CPU is upgradable?

Most likely ATX, which is what most computer cases are, although it may be micro ATX if it is rather small.

Re: Update kernel to 2.6.35-23 didn't work, now won't uninst

Got it. After googling the error, I found that the installation and removal process used scripts generated for the package. I went into /var/lib/dpkg/info and deleted all files to do with 2.6.35-23. The error said it was the pre-removal script that was causing issues, but I removed the lot anyway, a...

[SOLVED] Update kernel to 2.6.35-23 didn't work

I saw the latest kernel update in mintupdate, and stupidly decided to go for it. Alas, it didn't install correctly, though I am still on 2.6.35-22, which works fine. I tried uninstalling it, but got this error for package linux-image-generic-2.6.35-23: E: linux-image-2.6.35-23-generic: subprocess in...

Re: Linux Mint 10 SLOOOOOOOW

Full system spec?

Seems like a dodgy iso to me, did you check the md5 before installing? Mint shouldn't be doing that on an i7 rig.

Re: My external Hard disk not recognized

Try plugging it into a port at the back of your computer as well. I had a similar problem because the front side USB ports didn't channel enough power to power the hard drive.

Re: Can't put anything on the desktop

I had this issue on an earlier mint release, I think I eventually just reinstalled the system to fix it. Sounds drastic I know, but I couldn't find any other solution.
