Re: Mounted drives on the right

Drag and drop the icons to where you want them. I've just carried out the experiment by dragging and dropping the icons for three drives from the left of the screen to the right and then doing a restart. The icons remained where i placed them. Drag and drop works for drives that are known the OS. I...

Re: Can't disable nouveau

Maybe this helps someone ... but i apologize for my bad english I finally got rid of the Nouveau Driver and installed the newest driver from the NVidia Homepage. After installing KMint i noticed that there are two Kernels. 2.6.32-21 and 2.6.32-23. I followed the steps on https://wiki.kubuntu.org/X/...

Mounted drives on the right

I,ve looking for a way to have the mounted drives to appear automatically on the right side of my desktop but couldn't find anything. I don't want to move all icons to the right, I know theres a way to do this, just the mounted drives. Does anyone know of a way to have drives appear on the right and...

Re: Can't disable nouveau

@Boo I tried adding the line: blacklist nouveau, but it didn't seem to make a difference. I even blacklisted it using the Nvidia driver installer which automatically creates an entry to blacklist it but once again it seems like the nouveau driver just ignores this blacklist. However I didn't try the...

Re: Can't disable nouveau

@rec9140 I don't know if it is specific to mint, but the people who were having similar issues on other *buntus fixed it by just adding nouveau in the blacklisted modules. This solution didn't work in mint, the blacklist has to be done in grub. @Nicekiwi9 Maybe you could try before boot, when grub a...

Re: Can't disable nouveau

@Raffles 10 I knew there was a proper way to do it but I'm still thinking like the old grub days :lol: I don't know it the problem is specific to my card but in the Gnome version of Mint I could just install the driver and it worked, but in the KDE version if I didn't blacklist nouveau it wouldn't w...

Re: Can't disable nouveau

@champ2087 To edit the grub config file just open the terminal and type this: sudo kate /boot/grub/grub.cfg This should open kate with the configuration file. Now go down until you find the configuration for each entry. It looks something like this ### BEGIN /etc/grub.d/10_linux ### menuentry "Linux...

Re: Can't disable nouveau

@rec9140 Updating initramfs didn't seem to make difference. However I did manage to solve this little problem. Apparently in Mint 9 KDE blacklisting the nouveau driver makes no difference and it is still loaded anyways (I don't know if it is the same for Kubuntu). This is a problem since I couldn't ...

Can't disable nouveau

I've been trying to prevent the nouveau module from loading at boot in order to install the Nvidia driver manually, but no matter what I try, the module is always loaded. I've tried blacklisting it, removing it from synaptic, even deleting the module and still every time I boot it says the module is...

Re: Ideas for Isadora KDE

Hey boo,

I think it would be great if you included Silicon as a default app which is a simple manager for cd images, it works great.

I tried to mount and iso and I noticed that unlike the Main edition this edition has no tool to manage iso images. After some research I found this tool Silicon to manage images in kde 4. I found it to be a pretty good tool you should consider it for this or the next release of Mint KDE because moun...
