Re: Keyboard shortcuts not working ( mint 14 cinnamon )

Sorry for repeating myself, but this problem persists depite the workaround generally working: It doesn’t seem to resolve my particular problem of trying to assign shortcuts using the Windows, or Super, key . In LM13’s Cinnamon edition, that was still possible. Or is it something about your workarou...

Bug reporting/tracking needs improving

This is something I have been saying for a while: bug tracking for Linux Mint seems to be a mess. For RCs, bugs are to be reported in the comments to the announcement post; some people will always post something worth looking at in the forums; and then there is Launchpad. I tried the latter, but the...

Re: Keyboard shortcuts not working ( mint 14 cinnamon )

I just went to the bug at https://bugs.launchpad.net/linuxmint/+bug/1077930 and added my confirmation that this bug, originally filed against the Mint 14 Cinnamon (Nadia) release candidate, is still present in the final release. So far the importance of the bug on Launchpad has not been determined,...

Re: Mate or Cinnamon?

One perhaps only tangentially relevant question: How do I find out what version of Cinnamon I am running? Is there a magic command I could type into the terminal? :)

Re: Cinnamon all of a sudden very slow + high CPU usage

The development team (and upstream Ubuntu since this is an upstream issue) are actively seeking an automated resolution to this problem. In the meantime, if you're impacted by this problem, please seek support from the forums or the IRC. Yeah, I had seen that. It also says to seek help from the for...

Login sound can’t be disabled

I cannot seem to get the login sound disabled. Unchecking the “Login successful” box on the Accessibility tab of Login Window Preferences has no effect—neither in Mate nor in Cinnamon, actually. Is anyone else seeing this? Is there another way to turn it off?

Doesn’t work for me, neither in LM13 nor in 14. Anything else I can try?

Re: Printer Settings missing

I couldn't work out how to access printer settings via the usual means… It turns out, you can access the printer settings via the cups daemon, by going to localhost:631 in any browser. Of course, that’s text-based and not graphical, and it is not really an option if I want to tell my mother where t...

Re: Printer Settings missing

Please search the forums for printer settings. Gosh, thanks, that was tremendously helpful. I had already done that, and because nothing useful turned up, I wrote this post. If there is something in the Cinnamon section, please blame the forum search, not me. In any case, two pieces of information ...

Re: Printer settings in Cinnamon

There seems to be no way to configure the printer, like changing the paper size etc. I have a feeling that there must be a way to do this, but the Printers thingie sure isn’t it. It is in mate but not cinammon. In that you need to use the url localhost:631 to get at cups, seems several steps back t...

Printer Settings missing

In the 64-bit Cinnamon versions of LM13 and 14, I cannot seem to find the usual printer settings, such as page size etc.—what am I missing?

LM14 RC is out – any early reviews/impressions?

If you are looking for the Linux Mint 14 Release Candidates, have a look at the Linux Mint Mirrors site. At least the HEAnet servers already have the Nadia versions.

Has anyone been able to have a look and would like to share first impressions, or perhaps a serious review? :)
