Re: Spotify webpage in FF crashes the whole system.

While I can't offer specifics on resolving your Spotify browser issue, here are a couple of items that may be of use to you: 1. Spotify has a deb install so you could bypass the browser issue entirely and run it as an app (I've been using it quite successfully the last several months with no signifi...

You might want to join / post in the following link. When these guys/gals aren't drifting off on a tangent, they're focused on hardware build it yourself. I know a number of them are Lx users so they should be a good asset for you.

Re: localhost ? why can't I open

If you are doing the out of the box LAMP install with M17, the default document root is /var/www/html. You should get your index page displayed with
http://localhost/index.html

Hope this helps.

Re: Mint Mavens Choice of Directory/File Managers

My standard for 8+ years has been the kde app Krusader. There is a cross desktop alternative called Xfe which is (in my opinion) almost as good as Krusader. Both of these file managers are dual pane which was one of your requirements.

Both are available is synaptic.

Hope this helps,

Re: Lexmark Pro 205

In general, you may need to go directly to the Lexmark site and download/install the correct driver for your printer if you cannot find a match in the drivers available in Lx Mint.

Re: Hidden wi-fi at installation

I don't know what context you are referring to a "hidden wi fi"? If you are attempting to establish a wifi connection before installing (recommended), then before you initiate the installation process, go into the control panels. Select the network manager (or similar named) and establish your wifi ...

Re: php5 installed but not working in apache

You might want to check you permissions in /var/www/html. As a side note, some genius at Ubuntu (I think) thought it would be nifty to change the long standing LAMP root directory from /var/www to /var/www/html. At my last build (I changed things back to the way they used to be and eliminated the /h...

Re: php5 installed but not working in apache

A couple of questions/tasks come to mind:

1. How did you install php5 and what code did you use?

2. If you installed it stand alone (outside of the Apache2 install) did you restart Apache (assumes you installed the correct php5 libraries)?

Re: Lamp

sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart

You should not need to restart Apache2 or MySQL after installation (The code above won't hurt anything, just not needed).

Start using parition level backups to your Mint "/" at strategic times (like just before and just after you do updates). 4. Use the reco...
