Re: Internet appears connected but doesn't work

I'm assuming your using some kind of router using a DHCP service with your DSL equipment. Your computer may be looking for it's old DCHP lease which is no longer there. Open a terminal and type this to remove the old information sudo dhclient -r and then to try and get a new lease sudo dhclient eth0...

Re: Using Debian repos on Mint

OK, now I get you. It's been a while since I did something like that.

[url=http://askubuntu.com/questions/170348/how-to-make-my-own-local-repository]This should be some help.[/url]

It maybe easer to install the packages you want off the disk using Gdebi though.

Re: Using Debian repos on Mint

Yes, it is possible with no guarantees of what will happen if you use them, nor have I tried this in a while, no need to. What you have there is the code for a local repo(stored on your machine). If you want the ones off the Internet you need something like... deb http://deb.opera.com/opera/ stable ...

Re: no $PYTHONPATH environment variable?

To add directories to your PATH you can add them to your .bashrc. for example you can add PATH=$PATH:/home/[username]/python/userlib. I also want to make python scripts in /home/[username]/python/bin executable from anywhere within my filesystem without having to type the full directory name. How do...

Re: no $PYTHONPATH environment variable?

Oops, sorry about that, add the line "PYTHONPATH=/usr/bin/python" to the file .bashrc and if the file isn't there just create it. And I was told to use "#! /usr/bin/env python" rather than "#! usr/bin/python". Why is the latter better? Not sure about the first one? I'm not a python expert but that m...

Re: no $PYTHONPATH environment variable?

Open your .profile file in your home directory with a text editor. Use View->Show Hidden Files if you have to. Add the line "PYTHONPATH=/usr/bin/python" to the file (don't use quotes). Save, logout, login again and it will be there. One other thing, you can add "#!/usr/bin/python" (don't use quotes)...

Re: Wired Network (Ethernet) not working - Intel I-217-V

Well, there are a couple options I can think of and all come with risk. 1. Temporarily add a newer Ubuntu repo (i.e. raring) and update your kernel and maybe grub but that's it. Then remove the repo. This shouldn't break anything and if it does, you can set grub to boot into your old kernel again. I...

Re: Help with C.

My basic C coding is rusty but it looks like you are declaring variable c as data type int and using/comparing it to data type string or char array. Dumb it down and change all your "strings" to numbers. for example printf("Command: must be a nuber :"); scanf("%d", &c); ..... if (c=1) { printf("File...

Re: Mint 15 Unable to Boot After Install

I was able to do it but it took a few tries and this is what I did. This system is Mint only. 1. Partition the drive the way you want using a GPT partition table and make sure you have efi partition formatted to fat 32. My drive is part 1 efi fat 32 part 2 / ext4 part 3 /swap part 4 /home ext4 2. Tu...

Re: Checking integrity of a distribution download

To check the hash of the downloaded file on Linux you can open a terminal, cd to the directory of the file, and enter md5sum myfilename.iso or you can install GtkHash and use that if you want to use a GUI application. The program is pretty much self explanatory. To check the .iso file in windows you...

Go to the playonlinux web site and add their ubuntu repo per their instructions. Then a sudo apt-get update followed by a sudo apt-get upgrade should work but I haven't tryed it for a while. However, I did just install POL 4.2.1 the other day using their ubuntu repo.

Re: Wine for 64bit Mint Debian

Don't know.

You can go to the wine website. They do have detailed install instructions for a lot of distros. I installed wine on mint cinnamon using their ubuntu repo but you probably want their debian instructions.

You may want to check some debian specific forums also.
