Re: Touchpad stops working in Mint 12

I have this same freeze. The commands offered in the post by vibhudost work (thanks!) but I have to keep issuing them after the next boot. I have seen a different article with some additions to the above commands. The author says it has fixed this issue for him. http://ev3n.com/touchpad-not-working-...

Re: No mouse with live CD linuxmint-12-gnome-dvd-64bit

Jeannot40 Your English is fine, you would not want my French!! I am sorry you are having trouble installing Mint. First, I am confused. You downloaded the gnome dvd 64 bit version, correct? Are you using a cd or dvd? I ask that because you say you are trying to boot from a live cd. (This may only re...

Re: Can't install Mint 12 KDE 32-bit

Ceezer,
I know the BIOS is set to enable booting from both, USB and CD/DVD
But are they set before the hdd in the boot order? If they are listed after the hdd in the boot order, the hdd, and your mint10 install will be booted.

God Bless

Re: How to install Linux Mint?

Eule,

Since I don't know the make/model of the laptop, but it may be that its bios does not allows booting from usb. That may be your problem.

Re: Random freeze on booting into desktop

If you are still having mouse/trackpad slowdowns, freezes, stuttering caused from returning from suspend or inactivity and you have Intel-based graphics, you may have noticed the kworker kernel process taking over CPU cycles as noted when you run "top" (without apostrophes) in terminal. If this is s...

Re: Mint 12 Trackpad

Matthew9170,

It would help to find a fix if you could give us the particulars of your system .....the make, model, and trackpad info (you can find this under Administration > System Profiler and Benchmark in the Input Device section.

Re: Random freeze on booting into desktop

I think these random freezes are not connected to the new Mint12, per se. Linux Torvalds has reported this being related to a kernel thread tool called, kworker https://lkml.org/lkml/2011/3/30/836. If you notice your cursor begin to get jumpy, sloppy or slow, open a terminal and type "top" (without ...
