Re: [Solved] completly remove libre office

This is the only solution that worked for me. Other recommended commands did not do it. Thank you!

Re: Print to file: Results always go to /home

I still have this problem and welcome advice or suggestions. I would prefer not to reinstall Mint unless I knew it would fix the problem. Thank you.

Re: linuxmint 14/Libreoffice -- can't

@kkruecke: Did you change your hostname (computer name) like I did after installing Mint 14?

Anyone: this remains a problem for me and I welcome any suggestions or advice. I would prefer not to reinstall Mint unless I were sure it will fix it.

Re: unable to restore evolution data after up grade to nadia

Mr. Peeters,
See my note above. I was able to get around it, but had to recreate the email address. However, I got all my data and email history.
Cheers.

Re: linuxmint 14/Libreoffice -- can't

@zerozero: Sorry for slow reply. For this upgrade (from LM13 > 14), I did NOT keep the same home folder. I recreated everything from scratch. I created a new user with Admin rights, and got same problem. I have a separate post about the problem of the system not taking output directory designations ...

Print to file: Results always go to /home

I recently upgraded from Linux Mint 13 to 14. A feature that I've regularly used without problems in Linux Mint 12 and 13 no longer works properly. It no longer takes my designation of the folder location to save the file. To be clear, I don't want it to always print in the same default folder, I wa...

Re: unable to restore evolution data after up grade to nadia

I also had a problem, though not sure if it was the same. In Linux Mint 13 (Evolution 3.2.3), I backed up to a USB drive. Then in Linux Mint 14 (Evolution 3.2.6), I launched Evolution and tried to restore from backup (which is what I understand to be recommended). The restore finished and left me at...

Re: linuxmint 14/Libreoffice -- can't

I have the same problem. This is after upgrading from Linux Mint 13 to Linux Mint 14 today. Did you ever find an answer? I found various similar problems and tried the following without success: Deleting the file .libreoffice/3/user/registrymodifications.xcu Delete the user directory and .lock file ...

Re: Can't choose Dropbox location

Yes, I had same problem and solved it this way. 1) Set up Dropbox in the only place it would let me: /home/username/Dropbox I did this with Advanced setup, and unselected almost all files, so it didn't try to put a lot of files there yet. There seems to be no alternative to this step. 2) Edited Drop...

Re: Nvidia driver problem: fix in Mint 12 or wait for Mint 1

Thank you, Nomko. It worked and I'm now happily running Cinnamon. :D For the record: Under System Settings/Additional Drivers, I selected: "NVIDIA accelerated graphics driver (post-release updates) (version 173-updates)" instead of the "recommended" version. That solved the probl...

Nvidia driver problem: fix in Mint 12 or wait for Mint 13?

I am running Linux Mint 12 main version on a Dell XPS410 with Nvidia GeForce 7300 LE/PCI/SSE2 graphics unit. I'm a newbie with limited command line ability. I would like to run Cinnamon, but cannot because of likely Nvidia driver issues, and don't feel confident to install older driver. What is my b...
