On my laptop the skypeforli...

Re: Sound Lost - Nothing seems to be wrong, but no sound

I need to say sorry to you. When this problem happen first time, I did try to boot windows-10 and found out that the sound did work normally there, so I did blame the problem to Linux. Because I don't like to use windows, I haven't booting to it after this. Now I did neeeeed to listening to some new...

Some 2 weeks ago I noticed that I didn't have sound anymore on my laptop computer (usually I use my desktop computer for listening to media, so I didn't notice when this happened to my laptop). My laptop used to have sound, and in windows it still have sound (dual boot system), so the hardware seems...

Re: Cinnamon just crashed - after updating.

I feel very stupid now. When I got this problem and tried to update from terminal, I got this line E: dpkg was interrupted, you must manually run 'sudo dpkg --configure -a' to correct the problem. So I copied the "sudo dpkg --configure -a" part and paste it to terminal. For mistake (and without noti...

Re: Grub from other Linux on dual boot (Mint 15 and Mint 17)

If it's a system on sda with old-fashioned Grub for BIOS, boot Mint 17.2 and re-install Grub from there: sudo grub-install /dev/sda If it's Grub for UEFI: https://sites.google.com/site/easylinuxtipsproject/6 It is a system on sda with old-fashioned Grub.

<SOLVED> Grub from other Linux on dual boot (Mint 15 and 17)

Some years ago, I did install Linux Mint 15 on my desktop computer. About one year ago, I did Install Linux Mint 17 on that same desktop. Because at that time I didn't want to erase the old Mint 15 from my desktop, I did install Mint 17 alongside Mint 15, as a dual boot. Now I did update Mint 17 to ...

Re: Desktop freeze while mous still work. Mint 17 Cinnamon

Developer of Variety here. All the wallpaper changers in the end use the same way to change your wallpaper - they send an instruction to the system "Use this image for wallpaper", then various subsystems pick up from there like gnome-settings-daemon, Compiz, etc., and they perform various graphical...

Re: Desktop freeze while mous still work. Mint 17 Cinnamon

It seems to be related to the wallpaper changers. If I don't use them, then my screen won't freeze. I have try Cortina wallpaper changer, and it have freeze (but not as often as Variety), so I will just use it. It is far away with as nice GUI as both Wallch and Variety, but I will just use it while ...

Re: Desktop freeze while mous still work. Mint 17 Cinnamon

I like to have the wallpaper changing automatic, so it is disappointing to have to turn this of. Is there some other software...
