Re: How do you like the UK weather?

West Midlands, UK. The cat just went out. It's -3.6 in the garden right now. What they call global warming is global climate change. If the gulf stream moves a bit it could get much colder, not warmer in Britain as a result of overall warming. The cat came back in pretty quick! We're on the same lat...

Re: kompozer crashes

Sorry it didn't work out for you Glas. Maybe try the 32 bit version?

Re: kompozer crashes

Hi Glas, It's pretty straightforward. But NB I'm using 32 bit version. Just extract the contents of the archive using right click & "extract here". A folder appears called kompozer-0.8a4, assuming that's the version you downloaded. The executable file is in there, it's just called &quo...

Re: kompozer crashes

Hi I had this problem, Kompozer closed down whenever I used some of the drop down menu items like Recent Pages. I went to the Kompozer home page & downloaded the latest version from there: http://kompozer.net/ kompozer-0.8a4-gcc4.2-i686.tar.gz I removed the old one & the new one works fine s...

Re: Xmms 2 problem

Hi

Try installing Audacious from the repos. I'm currently using in Gloria it & am very happy with it.
Very like Winamp & it can use Winamp skins, I believe.

Cheers!

Re: [solved] I can't boot the Gloria live cd

Thanks emorp. BTW I encountered the same problem the second time I tried to boot my new disc, but not later. I had a happy installation, but I got a message about my laptop battery being past its best. So maybe that caused the problem? No complaints! This is the first time I've gone for a Gnome vers...

Re: I can't boot the Gloria live cd

Hey there, I burned another disc & it worked fine. Sorry for wasting your time. Is there a "solved" label that can be attached? It looks great. I've been a KDE man for ages but am definitely going to give the old Gnome a go with this. As ever Mint is tops. My main distro since Daryna. ...

[solved] I can't boot the Gloria live cd

Hi everyone! Thanks to the Mint team as ever for their amazing work. I can't boot the live cd. It hangs at: /dev/sda: setting Advanced Power Management level to 0xfe (254) I also noticed in a line above this that Pulse Audio has a red star, is that a problem? I'm using a Toshiba Tecra A3X - it's abo...

Re: System will not detect audio CDs

Hi I have this problem too. From my googling I have discovered that you can't mount an audio cd. (They work differently in some way). Also that Amarok 2 doesn't support audio cds. Try typing audiocd:/ into Dolphin. It's possible that you could rip it then with k3b but I haven't had time to try that ...

Hi Thanks for your great work on the new release everyone! I have this problem too, but is fstab relevant, as audio cds don't get mounted? Data cds & dvds play fine. I can browse the disc & see the audio files if I type audiocd:/ into Dolphin but I haven't managed to open any of the files ye...

Hi All! I'm using Mint 4 KDE CE on both my laptop & may main desktop & am very happy. The best distro I've tried by a long chalk! Huge thanks to Clem & everyone. I'm still dual booting my Toshiba Tecra A3X with Win XP because of hardware peripheral issues. A big step for me would be if I...
