The view settings are the problem as it becomes stuck on Full Screen view, which is no good compared to the Scroll view. Scroll view allows a larger viewing screen, as the Full screen shrinks all monitors into 1 viewi...

Mic not found for Google Hangouts

Hello,
my LinuxMint 18 laptop internal mic works for Audacity recording, however Google Hangouts could not find the mic.
If I close Audacity, Google Hangouts can find the mic.
Is there some program to allow LinuxMint to allow the mic to be used on 2 programs at the same time?

When adding an OS, the only options are 32-bit Windows systems, but I need 64-bit. What is wrong?

Re: Wi-Fi usually not connecting to mobile's hotspot

So, Mint laptop is not connecting to home Wi-Fi aswell now.
Other devices can connect to the home Wi-Fi.
I don't think the Wi-Fi card is broken...seems to be some odd Mint config issue.

Re: Remmina not showing pop down panel to exit screen

OMG, this is finally fixed!
Remmina had an update. Update didn't work, so had to update from an untrusted PPA source.
