IIRC, I used Ext2Fsd (Edit: Ext2explore) , and IIRC, it's "read-only". It's still probably better to share an NTFS partition ...

Re: photoshope is not open psd file in wine

I've had those (type of) errors ("a program error") with photoshop under wine - sometimes after it's been running for months. The only cure I found was to make a new wine prefix (~/.wine) But the new wine (v3.0x) photoshop 7 (old version number) and 12 (CS 5 ?) work great and open PSD files. "gimp" ...

Re: Any music producers out there using Linux DAW's????

I've been searching for years for evidence of real, professional music producers using Linux. I've never been able to find any. PhD21's links pretty much confirm that. Having messed with "jack" and the linux DAWs, I'd never use linux for anything more complicated than converting a file format. I do...

Re: Can not write to CD/DVD

Try running

Code: Select all

xfburn
from a terminal, try writing to a write-able CD/DVD, and post the terminal output here.
You might have to install it:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install xfburn
It's light and won't include a lot of junk or mess up your system.

Re: Audio seems to work when it wants to, sometimes it does and sometimes it doesnt

It seems that pressing the mute key and unpressing it will make the audio no longer work for the session. I had that happen and it was a pulseaudio issue; after muting with "amixer" (alsa) I had to unmute with pavucontrol. If you don't have it, intstall it: sudo apt-get install pavucontrol Run it a...

I cannot use terminal because there is black screen after system boots, that's why i'm trying to do something with drivers.
What kinda nvidia card are you using? nvidia drivers for some older cards basically don't work with some newer kernels.

The Linux OS and some user data in your $HOME require NOT ntfs because of the way file permissions are handled...what are you encrypting?
