Re: Magnet Links & Chrome

I figured it out! Its not perfect, as it requires you use a specific Chrome plugin and that you use Transmission as your BitTorrent client, but that aside it works very well. Here is what to do: 1. Install ".torrent to Transmission" plugin for Chrome Here: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/k...

Touchpad Module Name

Sometimes my touchpad stops working after suspending my laptop with Mint 13 (Lenovo S205). How do I figure out what my touch pad module is called so I can determine the drivers to whitelist them?

First week on Mint and loving it

Hello all! I have been a Mac user for a long as I can remember, but I needed a new computer and didnt have the cash for a new MacBook. Instead I decided to go with a midpowered netbook and Mint.

Re: [SOLVED] Mint 13 Wireless works on Live CD not on Deskto

I found the solution. I had to go into the BIOs and take "mintlinux" out of the first position on the boot sequence, then it acts like it did in the Live CD.

Found fix in this bug report: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+sour ... bug/968103

Re: Mint 13 Install Instructions for Lenovo S205

Okay, so I found the fix for the wifi not working! What you have to do is go into the BIOs and make sure that "mintlinux" is not in the first place in the boot sequence. Once you take it out of first place, the system will load the wifi. I put the HD in first place, and mintlinux in the second place...

Re: Maya Wireless works on Live CD not on Desktop

So I just tried to install a bunch of new drivers and whatnot to no avail. Then I did a reinstall, and when I was in the Live CD the wifi worked perfectly as it did before. When I check "rfkill list" it says that the wifi is being Hard Blocked, and my wifi toggle switch is on. Anyone got ideas for h...

Re: [SOLVED] Lenovo S205 Installation and Boot Issues

Okay, so I figured it out!!! After all that and it was a partitioning error. So the way to get Linux Mint to boot on a Lenovo S205 is to put a fat16 windows partition before all the Linux partitions. Apparently the folks at Lenovo made it so that their BIOS expects to find a windows partition first....
