I just tested my computer with the 8GB set of ram, the set I've successfully installed LM14 on earlier, and it doesn't work.

My problem installing Linux Mint 14 (KDE) is that every time I try to install it, the installer crashes, without any bug report, nothing, just gone. It happens when I select "manually partition" versus the automatic use my entire 1TB HDD. More specifically, it happens every time, and it always crash...

Re: Several Questions on Theming/Appearance

Ok, sorry that was my fault, I'm pretty sure that setting adjusts the opacity of the entire window, where as I just want the "main" panel to be semi-opaque (in dolphin / file manager where the files/folders appear), is that possible?

Several Questions on Theming/Appearance

I've installed kde via "sudo apt-get install kde-full" and I've got a kde system up and running, but it currently has a few various bugs... http://imgur.com/WFDRs,TcBtl (the window in the first, and the pop-up in the second), how do I fix these? I'd also like to know if I can achieve a semi-transpar...

Re: <SOLVED> Mint Splash On Cube Desktop Overview

Actually, the way I'm doing it now (i'm not on my kde machine right now, so excuse the vague extensions), but in ~/.kde4/some config file there's a setting that you can just disable it entirely (or alternatively sometimes there's a setting in the desktop cube plugin)

Re: Errno 5: Input Ouput error.

I'm getting this same problem when I install, I've gone into the grub boot menu, and checked the USB for errors, and none were found. I then tried my RAM, HDD, etc. and they all turned up fine...

I'm using:

AMD A8-3850 APU
Raedon 6670 GPU
GSKILL 8GB 1866 RAM (Used at 1600 w/ lower timings)

I deleted KWallet under my home directory, and was able to put KDE Daemon under my always allow settings. It still asks me for my password on login. My settings look just like yours.

Re: KDE Daemon, KWallet, and Update Manager

I understand what you're saying about update manager, that makes sense.
For kwallet, how'd you get the kde daemon entries there? I cannot seem to add to the list, nor does it give the option to add kde daemon to the list when it asks...

KDE Daemon, KWallet, and Update Manager

After using KDE for a while, I've grown to love it, except for the few minor annoyances that just scream "fix me" that every linux distro has. One of such annoyances is that every time I login, it informs me that KDE Daemon wants to access KWallet, and makes me put my password in. How can I just giv...

Re: grub-efi problems when installing Mint 13

My real reason for wanting UEFI was the partition limit, and the ability to have many bootloaders.
My workaround for not having UEFI was using GPT and a bootmanager. Simple, but effective.

Re: Installing Mint With Linux Kernel 3.6.2

Ok, so I've been following this tutorial: http://www.osnews.com/story/8472, and I'm on step three:

tar -xvjf .bz2 -C /usr/src
cd /usr/src
rm linux
ln -s linux
cd linux

However I do "ln -s linux" and it works fine, but then "cd linux" says to many levels of symbolic links.

How do I fix this?
