Weather Applet Stopped Working A Few Days Ago

Mint 17 Qiana, Cinnamon

Hi,

My weather applet stopped working a few days ago. It doesn't update and all I see is the curved arrow that is shown when it isn't updated.

Anyone else have this issue?

How did you fix it?

Thanks

Mint 17 Cinnamon When I post questions I like to post the Mint and Desktop versions I am using to help make solving my questions easier. You guys do such a great job with Mint that I end up going a LONG time in between questions. I also use an LTS. I end up forgetting what I am using. How can I tell...

Hi all,

What happened to the Mint theme of the forum?

Firefox 39: How to enable Flash everywhere?

Hi all,

I am using Firefox 39 on the latest Mint.

Every time I go to a site with flash I get asked to enable flash for that site. It is getting annoying. Is there a way I can enable flash everywhere?

Thanks

Mint 17: Help With Finding A Video Card

Hi, I recently replaced an old monitor I've been using since the early 00's, one of the first thin, non bulky monitors. I replaced it with a much larger, modern Samsung monitor. Interestingly, streaming videos seem to work just fine in full screen mode. However, when I got to full screen with an avi...

Re: WYSIWYG Web Page Editor In The Repositories?

Blue Griffon works for me with Mint 17 XFCE. You don't actually have to "install" it. You just download and extract it. Then you open the folder and right mouse click on the file called "bluegriffon" and under the permissions tab, make sure the check box is checked to allow it to run as a program. ...

fre0r-plugins not in Synaptic

Hi,

On the advice of someone in another thread I installed OpenShot.

When I booted OpenShot up I got an error message telling me that the fre0r-plugin was missing.

I couldn't find it listed in Synaptic.

How can I install this package?

Thanks

Re: Making a video out of an MP3 and a picture

This worked: $ avconv -i audio.mp3 -i pic.jpg out.avi out.avi output movie was the length of the audio. Thanks! Very simple. The out.avi wouldn't work in the default media player ( Mint 17 ). It worked in VLC. When I tried to upload it to YouTube it told me that it wasn't in a supported file format...

FFMPEG?

I noticed that FFMPEG was not be found in synaptic.

I thought I would ask what the reason is before I tried a workaround.
