I just ordered the Panda, tired of screwing around with the Edimax. Just wish that Mint or Ubuntu had not made the change that rendered so many wifi dongles ineffective. Oh well.
IIRC, Panda suppled a miniature CD with some software on it - don't mess with it! No need.

Re: Wireless dongle to replace Edimax

I had an Edimax and messed around with the 8192cu stuff, which worked, but....I replaced it with
Panda Wireless PAU06 300Mbps N USB Adapter, about $15
NO more fiddling!

Re: Need Partition Help

How do I merge the sda1 partition with the unallocated space as shown below? I have tried the Live CD and a Gparted CD with no success. Thanks. From LiveMedia, using gparted I would delete all the partitions except sda1; then you can just extend it into the free space you just created, but leave ro...

Re: Model Railroader Noob to Linux

My first Linux software installation! I ended up figuring out how to use Package Manager. Now, let's see if the software works! Yup, it's in the repositories! I should've suggested that you check there before messing with that install script. Edit: Cannot mkdir: Permission denied. Just FYI, that wa...

I get those messages after every wine update, but never install either one.
Turns out I had installed "mono" - don't recall what program(s) requires it - but have never installed gecko; @377Ohms, I don't want/need anything in wine to render html.

Re: Model Railroader Noob to Linux

I have no idea at all what you're telling me to do, nor how to do it. Oh. - Download the 32 or 64 bit .sh file that matches your 32 or 64 bit system. - It should end up in $HOME/Downloads (or "Download"?) - Open a terminal, type cd Downloads sh xtrkcad-setup-5.1.1-1.x86_64.sh (Or sh xtr*.sh the "*"...

Re: Model Railroader Noob to Linux

I would download
http://www.xtrkcad.org/Wikka/CurrentRelease
"self-extracting install script (32 Bit)"
or, more likely,
"self-extracting install script (64 Bit)"
and then run it - first as NOT root/sudo:

Code: Select all

If you're trying to watch Netflix on your computer, you don't need to do that stuff; you can watch it w/o wine and thru firefox or chrome.

Is that what you want to do?

Re: Catweazel - over and out

Common usage in England. Although by "half nine" we mean "half past nine" whereas in Germany that would mean "half to nine". :) I saw that from the Irish girlfriend on "Boardwalk Empire" ...

Thanks for your reply, but I can't see how it explains why a standard Mint form doesn't do what it say's on the button.
Apparently it's been a bug for about 10 years.
