Re: Mounting a CD/ROM drive in Linux Mint 16

You could also try (in terminal):

Code: Select all

sudo mkdir /media/maccd
sudo mount -t hfsplus /dev/cdrom /media/maccd

Re: cuda drivers

Further to this, I decided to get on the nvidia site to see if there was a newer, better driver for this card. When I typed in the card, OS and did a search, the site indicated the driver it was going to allow me to download was 352.63, which is actually already an (unselected) option in Driver Mana...

Re: cuda drivers

I've just upgraded my desktop to 17.3 (Rosa) - 64-bit. I have installed an nvidia gtx-960 graphics card with 4gig VRAM that I'd like to use in Blender. I have installed the 258.16 driver, which I'm supposing has CUDA as part of the package (is that right?) using the instructions on this page . Speci...

Re: HP 8440p Brightness Control in Petra

Sorry to get back to you so late, Robim. Not sure how to get email notifications actually happening: I did enable it in my settings, but still find myself days late and dollars short on this. On the brightness thing: discovered something about this particular machine. It has this sensor that, if a s...

Robynsveil, This topic, which was started by kk5000, mainly covers the manual installation of Nvidia video drivers downloaded from Nvidia's website.

Re: Linux Mint networking 101

I'm having similar trouble since i installed mint 17 mate (is based on ubuntu 14.04)...all previous versions work normally.

Re: Install Nvidia proprietary drivers in LinuxMint UPDATED

I just thought I'd throw my hat in here... I've been having a horrible time getting any Ubuntu-based flavour of Linux running on this box. Indeed, I wasn't clear if it wasn't perhaps the HDD, as it would freeze just when was doing certain things. In any event, here is how I ended up installing Mint:...

Re: Linux Mint networking 101

Progress: so far, I've got all systems seeing each other and accessing shared folders except one: my main laptop. Booted this morning, everyone else sees shared PCs in Nemo (Network) but all I see is Windows Network. smbtree shows nothing. I tried: sudo ufw disable and then: sudo service smbd start ...

Re: Linux Mint networking 101

Further to this little conundrum, I can finally see other PCs on the network and access shared folders. However, if one of them logs in late, they don't show up on the other systems (this, all in Nemo) although smbtree will display them: robyn@hppavilion ~ $ smbtree Enter robyn's password: BIGPOND4D...

Re: Linux Mint networking 101

Thank you for considering my problem, Altair. I read the suggested links: the netbois names reflect changes to names that were too long, i.e., longer than 15 characters. (I made the changes in etc/samba/smb.conf, etc/hosts and etc/hostname). And rebooted. Here is the output for testparm -s: robyn@hp...

I'm quite unsure how to proceed. A...

Re: Qiana to replace Maya, reformatted entire disk

Oh, okay, so it wasn't meant to do that. Oh well, I still should have gone with my instinct and installed the old-fashioned way, particularly when there was so much data and stuff at stake. Lesson learned. I still love Mint and this whole environment: I've had far worse things happen in that other O...

I'm sure it's something I did wrong, but I can't say I'm very happy at the moment. I partitioned my 1 terabyte drive into two primary partitions (the second created only a short while ago) in order to save my data files and settings (backup partition). I did this with aptik. I also backed up all my ...
