Re: Geforce 210 HDMI audio

I went ahead and bought the card, so to answer my own question it works pretty well. I had to play around with the settings a bit (it listed more than one HDMI audio output port under "hardware" in the sound settings) and do a couple of reboots to see if they stuck. I got it working the wa...

Re: Geforce 210 HDMI audio

Right. I realize I'll have to install the NVidia binary driver. I was just looking to see if someone is already using this card with HDMI audio and can verify it's a simple as installing the driver and picking the right output device in the sound settings. In the 2 year old forum posts I was seeing,...

Geforce 210 HDMI audio

I'm looking for an affordable graphics card that will work will outputing audio to HDMI. I've seen the GeForce 210 and its siblings recommended in other topics and on other sites, but it looks like a couple of years ago it took some tweaking to get HDMI audio working. Does anybody have experience wi...

Re: Nadia x86_64 - resolvconf not using DNS server from DHCP

I did some manual digging and found out that things aren't quite what they seem on the surface. I'd noticed that dnsmasq was enabled on localhost by default and was the default DNS server. A bit weird, I thought, but whatever. Well, it turns out that this dnsmasq local-dns server is actually relayin...

Re: Nadia x86_64 - resolvconf not using DNS server from DHCP

I understand that things must be saved to a config file to be perisisted. The difference I'm seeing is that in past versions of Ubuntu/Mint, when getting a DNS address from DHCP I'd see this in /etc/resolv.conf (this is copied verbatim from a Linux Mint 12 system) # Generated by NetworkManager names...

Re: Nadia x86_64 - resolvconf not using DNS server from DHCP

Thanks, but I'm still wondering why the DNS server provided by DHCP is not automatically entered into /etc/resolv.conf the way it used to be. The link you gave described setting up a static IP address on a PC formally configured for DHCP, which is not what I'm doing here.

[solved] Nadia - resolvconf not using DNS server from DHCP

I can see in my NetworkManager status window that DHCP has correctly sent my pc a DNS server address, in this case 192.168.1.1. The problem is resolveconf isn't putting that into my /etc/resolv.conf for some reason. Even after running `sudo dpkg-reconfigure resolvconf` then rebooting as suggested in...

Re: Keyboard shortcuts not working ( mint 14 cinnamon )

I have the same problem. It looks like no one uses the windows/super/mod5 key except us. I used to use it for all my custom shortcuts, but I switched to an IBM Type-M keyboard on my Mint 14 machine and it doesn't have a Super key. I kinda miss it (now I'm stuck with the few unused function keys) bu...

Re: Keyboard shortcuts not working ( mint 14 cinnamon )

@dnixx I just thought of that after I figured out my mistake! I probably should have done that to begin with. Also, not trying to apply a work-around in the middle of work while bouncing from computer-to-computer might increase my chance of success. :oops:

Re: Keyboard shortcuts not working ( mint 14 cinnamon )

@dnixx - Thanks for the confirmation
@viking177 - I was using GViM for the display name, not the command. For the command I used "/usr/bin/gvim"

Turns out I was using the wrong one of the two "Keyboard" icons. It works now. Sorry for all the static, and great fix electrickite!

Re: Keyboard shortcuts not working ( mint 14 cinnamon )

OK, my dumb mistake. When I copied the text for the desktop file I didn't copy all the way down, just the visible part. Fixed that. I now have the dialog you mentioned, but I'm still having trouble. When I first opened the dialog and went to the "Keyboard Shortcuts", under "Custom Sho...

Re: Keyboard shortcuts not working ( mint 14 cinnamon )

electrickite's fix didn't work for me. Upon adding the desktop file, I didn't get anything new under Menu->System Tools->System Settings. I did get a second "keyboard" option under Menu->Preferences, but it just brings up the same dialog as System Tools->System Settings that contains thing...

Re: I need help finding software alternatives

Here are a few programs that I know of: ⋅ Video editing: OpenShot (for simple jobs, works well on most video formats) ⋅ Video editing: Cinelerra (for heavy lifting - lots of features and documentation available, but of course more difficult to use) ⋅ DVD Ripping: I thin...
