Re: Keyboard & Mouse stopped working in X / GDM3

You just were in the lmde irc channel and asked for help, but left four minutes later. Please don't leave so soon, especially on a Sunday (it's about 7:30 am where I am). Pastebin the /var/log/Xorg.0.log file from the machine giving you trouble. If you have package pastebinit installed, you can use ...

Re: [LMDE] xchat libperl5.10 (>=libperl5.10.1) - Can't reins

I believe that the problem with lmde's xchat is that the xchat package lmde uses is not from debian, but from ubuntu, and when lmde upgrades libperl5.10 to libperl5.12, the ubuntu xchat will not run (will not run despite ubuntu xchat requiring libperl >=5.10, so 5.12 should satisfy the dependency). ...

Re: Un Able To Mount Hard disk

When you tell your system to mount partitions, some checks on the partition are performed. From what you posted, it looks as if one or more of the system checks failed, and the failure(s) resulted in the message you received. You should follow the instructions before trying to mount the partition. I...

Re: Welcome to the mintCast forums (please say "Hi")

Y'all should do a podcast on the mint support irc channel #linuxmint-help on irc.spotchat.org . It's quite helpful so long as you're patient (iow, answers might more than 5 - 10 minutes, which some folks seem to think is too long to wait).

Re: bash_history size

If you want the variable set in .bashrc, put this in .bashrc

Code: Select all

export HISTSIZE=9000


Doing HISTSIZE=9000 won't work unless you export the variable.

When you are asked for the password, you need to type your password. The password you type is the one you use to login to your machine.

Re: How to edit fstab?
