Re: Strange problem at startup

It looks like you've been hit with this ubuntu bug . The text there says "This bug was fixed in the package indicator-sync - 12.10.5daily13.03.28.1-0ubuntu1", so I recommend trying an update, though the problem is, you don't say what version of Mint you are using. Thanks, I updated my signature. An...

always prints one more page (Mint Cinnamon 14)

Hi,

I have set up my Lexmark E120 printer successfully. However whenever I print (not always only 80% of the times) I get one more redundant page with the following text:
L SET DENSITY=5
@PJL SET RET=OFF
@PJL SET ECONOMODE=ON
@PJL SET DUPLEX=OFF
...
This is really annoying. How can I stop it?

Re: cannot share folder through samba

Thank you.

disabling the firewall did it!

But does that mean that I have no firewall, now? Can I configure firewall to accept incoming requests from the laptop?

I know it is another topic, but if you tell me it can be done, I will find a way (hopefully -- or start a new thread) :-)

[solved] assigning keyboard shortcut to 'always on top'

Hi,

Is there a way to assign a keyboard shortcut (e.g. SUPER+A) to make (even better toggle) a window be always on top? I have assigned shortcuts for all other things. This is something I can't find.

Re: Screenshot app malfunctioning, Linux Mint 13 with Cinnam

GPick shows same behaviour, too.

I cannot pick colors from the screen, as it always shows what is in the screen buffer and not on the current screen.

Any fix for that, yet? I think this is a bug that needs to be reported.

Hi, I installed Mint (frist time) and everything went well. I noticed, however, that the ATI GPU fan is working constantly at maximum speed. This was too noisy. I googled and I found out that I had to install proprietary drivers. I did so. I was given two options. ATI/AMD proprietary FGLRX graphics ...
