Re: need basic help with BASH/emacs word editing commands

I know it's been a while since I commented on this thread and you've probably already figured it out, but the reference manual I was refering to is for emacs, not linux mint. I could be wrong, but I don't think there is a reference manual for linux mint :?:

Re: Network goes mad after upgrading Maya to Nadia

Good gracious!

I'm not sure I understand what the problem because ifconfig shows an ip address.

Try "ping -c 3 www.google.com" too see what you get

Re: Sound stoped working in Mint 14 cinnamon

I'm not sure, but you can disable it by selecting "off" under profile so it doesn't keep switching back to it every time you reboot.

Re: Sound stoped working in Mint 14 cinnamon

in sound preferences, under the hardware tab, try selecting built-in Audio

And on the same tab under profile, select analog stero duplex

See if that helps.

Re: Toshiba nb305-n310 atheros wireless adapter

Here are a few things you can try:
ping -c 3 http://www.google.com

If you get host unknown run "ifconfig" to see if you get an internet address on wlan0, if not try "sudo ifconfig wlan0 up"

If that does nothing you can try running "dhcpcd wlan0"

Re: compiz woes / cubeaddon on mint 14

I don't know if I can help you out that much becuase compiz is just one of those apps that require careful configuration, but as far as cube deformation, I use that too, and if it helps you, these are all the compiz packages I have installed in Synaptic: https://farm9.staticflickr.com/8196/837454290...

Re: Firefox Menu Bar Bugs!!!

*Update*

Still having this issue which so far seems to be affecting only my computer. It not only happens with the menu bar dropdown list, but with all dropdowns on the Firefox browser. If anyone finds a fix, please shoot me a PM and leave a solution on this thread. Thanks again!
