Multimedia Mute Key Stopped Working in 18

I just installed LM 18 64 Cinnamon. The multimedia mute key on my Toshiba laptop, which had been working fine in 17.3, just stopped doing anything. I checked the keyboard control panel and it was pre-set to "Audio mute" but when I tried to rebind it it wouldn't acknowledge anything from th...

Re: Mint 13: Firefox 39.0 crashes right on startup

just another issue with firefox39 and mint cinnamon 17.2: crash on shutting down if freshplayerplugin is installed Oh, that's interesting. I do have Freshplayer installed and was having the crash-on-shutdown problem in addition to random crashing before doing the libxul.so substitution. Now it's go...

Re: Mint 13: Firefox 39.0 crashes right on startup

Then there seem to be two problems with Firefox 39.0. Because nicolaasjan above has the same setup and experienced the same crashiness. And used the libxul.so trick effectively (the crash I reported in my edit is the only one so far, so it's MUCH better after swapping out libxul.so for the one in th...

Re: Mint 13: Firefox 39.0 crashes right on startup

I'm using Mint 17.2 64-bit (Cinnamon) and I also have had this problem. It actually sent me to Opera for a couple days. I'm giving the libxul.so workaround a try and will report back how it goes. Edit: I was about to write that the fix worked, but then as I navigated to this post to edit it...Firefo...

Re: What are you most dissatisfied with in Linux Mint?

Having chosen other, I need to specify what my biggest dissatisfaction with Mint is: lack of in-place upgrades for the distribution that work well. This is especially problematic with Olivia and Petra since they're under the 9 month release policy Ubuntu recently switched to which means that you hav...

Re: Future of Firefox Asstralis and LinuxMint

Ghacks collected what other areas of Firefox might get a design overhaul in future releases: http://www.ghacks.net/2014/04/20/firefox-australis-may-next/ Looks dashingly exciting to me, so I'll probably be one of the users happy with the change (after configuring it for my needs, like I've done wit...

Re: Future of Firefox Asstralis and LinuxMint

Just tried it on a clean profile. The menu icon isn't movable. As you can see from the attachments, it's outside of the perforated box encompassing the movable icons. I included both with and without the menu bar because older Firefox versions would automatically hide the Firefox Menu icon when the ...

Re: Future of Firefox Asstralis and LinuxMint

Hmm. That didn't work for me when I tried it before adding the Classic Theme Restorer (the "hamburger" menu was outside of the field of movable icons). Of course that could be due to weirdness resulting from using FF29 with a pre-existing profile (a very long-serving profile actually).

Re: Future of Firefox Asstralis and LinuxMint

Okay, I installed Classic Theme Restorer. Love it, especially since it lets you configure how much of the classic theme you want back. It's worth it IMO for the ability to remove the Chrome-esque menu icon alone. There's really no need for Mint to go to a forked Firefox version. Just have Classic Th...

Re: Future of Firefox Asstralis and LinuxMint

I really don't think this is a huge deal. I upgraded via the Firefox Next PPA expecting to be horrified, but meh. It's noticeably snappier, on the one hand, and on the other hand the Chrome handburger menu being unremovable is annoying. As is the bookmark star being removed from the location bar and...

It's not really up to Mint. LM 13 Maya is an LTS because Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin is an LTS.

are you sure about this? or somehow you installed it as a dep of something else?


Ah, yes, you're right. Looking over the Synaptic logs, I see that it got installed when I installed rhythmbox. Sorry about that.

Re: Mate or Cinnamon?

I love my Linux 13 MATE desktop. I am impressed how stable it is and very thankful that Gnome 2 has been forked. Especially since I have obsolete hardware with no 3d card.

Re: Dropbox running from an unsupported location

Since the Linux 13 MATE DVD installs Nautilus too, and Dropbox pops that up when you click on it, Caja integration isn't absolutely necessary. If I need the integration features, I can just click on the Dropbox icon. But it would be really nice. I wonder if this guy ever gets around to updating his ...

Re: Why is MATE being kept alive?

FWIW, no less than Linus Torvalds called for a fork of Gnome 2. That alone is a good reason for MATE to exist.

Re: Sob!

I recently installed Linux Mint 13 MATE after keeping Ubuntu 10.10 past the end of support and I am very happy with it (I didn't like what I saw of the direction Ubuntu was taking with desktop UI, have an older PC, and like Linus Torvald think XFCE is a step down from Gnome 2). I don't see any signi...
