I am assuming these are instructions for Gnome since you handled openoffice. Could you post instructions for upgrading KDE to 7.04 properly? (If they are different..)

Thanks!

eh yes... but I've tried that in /etc/X11/Xsession and it doesn't work. I'm guessing hald-addon-acpi hasn't loaded at that point. problems, problems.

The byproduct of killing/refreshing KPowersave stuffs is a flickering of the screen if I am running on a battery. Is there a way to get this to run only once per boot/session/you-get-the-idea using the /etc/rc directories?

UPDATE: The Autostart idea did not work. I suppose this is because it needs your password. At any rate the user can still open a terminal on logging in a simply type "power" to fix the problem.

Clem: email or PM me for the file.

Clem: I've cooked up a shell script for users who experience this problem. It simply executes the commands in the above post. To install it, users need to download the file "power" to their home folder and do the following: sudo cp power /usr/bin sudo chmod 755 /usr/bin/power then simply o...

nick: thanks. Yes this is that same Edgy bug. The issue can be fixed by issuing the following commands:

$ sudo killall -QUIT hald-addon-acpi
$ sudo /etc/init.d/powersaved restart


Clem: can you cook us up a more permanent fix than running this as a shell script every session?

KPowersave Woes

The "CPU Frequency Policy" option in KPowersave does not appear, causing my laptop to run at 100% CPU all the time and chew through battery power. If I reinstall KPowersave, the "CPU Frequency Policy" option appears. After a restart it goes away again! If I can get it to stay I w...

I looked around the repos and couldn't find any packages like that. Clem would know... couldn't get in touch with him this morning. Maybe he'll see this? :?:

Well I was just going to let it be and keep using my left Alt key but I decided to test it out just for you! :D And guess what.. it worked! Just "sudo gedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf" and put a "#" before that line mentioned before and then save. You don't have to reboot, just restart X...

"sudo aptitude install kubuntu-desktop" will install the kde desktop packages but none of the Mint specific things! It simply isn't the same. If you plan to use KDE instead of Gnome you should download Mint KDE and do a clean install IMHO.

Not that I've found. I'm on a Sony Vaio VGN-FJ170 and have had to use awkward finger positions because of this too :(

Ah well... gotta love Mint anyway :D

I had a similar problem. For me it was because the right Alt key isn't recognized while the left one is. If I use the left Alt key with the arrow keys the short cuts work again. Check to see if this is the case for you.
