Re: Citrix Receiver Client ICAClient install for Linux Mint 18 Cinnamon

Hi everyone I didn't experience the problem mentioned here, but I recently installed Linux Mint 18 (Cinnamon) and the latest citrix receiver 13.5 with Firefox 52.0.1. I can connect to my work environment fine but couldn't start any application. All I got was "SSL Error 4" (and the usual: c...

Re: Multiple screens

Hi I am using Mint 16 / Cinnamon with an Intel HD 4000 graphic chip and face no such problems, at all. In previous versions of Mint (13 / Cinnamon) and with an nVidia graphic chip I had to use a tool called "disper" to easily add a second monitor. But this time with Mint 16: I simply conne...

Re: set up wireless connection on Linux Mint 14

Hi one year ago I found a strange behaviour of Windows: Although the "hardware" switch was in the "off" position for wireless, Windows ignored it and it worked on Windows. Needless to say, it took a while to figure that out on Linux ! The problem with that is, of course, that one...

Re: Printer Driver/Printer Settings

Hi usually, CUPS is installed. Access to the printer manager is done via your Web browser. So point your browser to http://localhost:631/ If you want to change something, you need to switch to the Administration tab. I don't have a printer connected right now, so I can't show how i works. But i know...

[SOLVED] panel-plugin xfce4-cpufreq-plugin crashes

Hi I read somewhere else that if you have problems with the panel plugins you should enable the PPA repository for xubuntu-dev. After enabling this repository, reloading the package lists and installing the latest version which at the time of writing is 1.0.0-4+ppa1 this panel-plugin works. However,...

panel-plugin xfce4-cpufreq-plugin crashes

Hi I am using XFce on an old AMD Turion laptop and the battery is broken. And, of course, the CPU is slowed down by this fact to 800 Mhz instead of the possible 2 GHz :( So I thought, why not install the xfce4-cpufreq-plugin to be able to change it to 2 GHz. But unfortunately, the plugin immediately...

Best desktop ever (Cinnamon 1.6)

Hi after using Ubuntu since 08.04 up to 10.04 I was looking for a replacement at the time the 10.04 version runs out of support. I am happy to find Linux Mint - some friends are using it and I tried it. My "evaluation" of a new Linux desktop included Lubuntu, Zorin OS, Xubuntu, PC/OS, etc....

Re: What do you not like about Cinnamon?

Hi First of all I'd like to say that Cinnamon (Linux Mint 13) works fast on my 5-year old AMD64 laptop. And, of course, even faster on my i7 laptop. But I miss one feature (or I didn't find how to set it): auto-raise of windows if using the "focus follows mouse"* setting. I'm not sure whet...

Re: How to add a user? [SOLVED]

The adduser command can be used at the commandline. Although most LM users probably want the gui's (like myself when I started), I now am using the commandline more and more often. Yes, sure. But the real problem is not the user itself, but to set the right groups, e.g. for accessing USB drives, Wi...

Re: connect camera EOS 350D

Hi I disabled some rules for udev but it didn't help. I found out how to get a (very long !) list of actions udev is doing. It'll take some time to figure that out and compare it to the log on a working Ubuntu system. Tests were done with the camera and a USB memory stick on Mint 13 Xfce. In the mea...

Re: connect camera EOS 350D

Hi the inspection of the (main ?) differences of udev in Mint 13 Xfce and Ubuntu 12.04.1 gave the following results which are not very helpful because nothing really seems to be affecting Canon cameras :( 1. udev Versions are both 175-0ubunut9.1 (amd64) 2. kernel is slightly different Ubuntu 12.04.1...

Re: Camera showing on the USB bus, but not on the desktop

Hi it's the same over here (Mint 13 Xfce) with a different Canon camera. It works well with Ubuntu 12.04.1 as tested with my friends computer. So, Mint must handle the cameras in a different way or the udev configuration files and udev itself is again brain-dead. The other problem with the Nokia CS-...
