Re: LM 10 KDE RC – First Impressions

That is probably a mint thing as the mint/google search earns $ for the project.

Re: LM 10 KDE RC – First Impressions

I think the youtube/flash/video/streaming lag is a upstream cache/buffer problem.
you may just have to let the cache/buffer fill up a bit first...

Re: Linux Mint 10 KDE

I have already updated 2 mint KDE packages to fix some bugs. So to apply these you need to install mint-meta-kde, and update mint-configuration-kde. EDIT eg from a terminal run apt update apt install mint-meta-kde mint-configuration-kde (or mint-meta-kde64) mintUpdate would have shown up mint-config...

Re: Question for Boo

The decision by the devs was for the non-main editions to either base off Ubuntu or Debian, mainly due to time constraints. So my current plan is to at some time build all the mint (Ubuntu) KDE packages as Debian packages. so hopefully this will allow people to install LMDE and then convert it to a ...

Re: Linux Mint 10 KDE

Hmmmmmmmmmm 6 days and no sign of Clem.
That has happened before when he goes hard core on some coding.
And then he just pops up with a new app.
Time to dig further.

Re: boo in Australia ?! Underwater?

I live on the driest bit, South Australia.
We will see some of the flood water some time via the Murry River.
Hopefully not enough to flood too many river towns.

Re: Linux Mint 10 KDE

Update time! I have built and uploaded the 32 and 64 bit versions of Julia KDE for testing. Both have been 100% tested with no errors found. Now it is time for Clem to give it the final blessing and they will be released. I expect this will be a Final version and not an RC. Any bugs that are found I...

Re: Linux Mint 10 KDE

An update on LM KDE10. The bulk of the iso is done. I have been spending most of my time trying to get ECMA scripts (KDE java script) to work to apply the mint desktop layout to the KDE desktop. In KDE4.4 these scripts were optional but now in KDE4.5 it is the default and only way to pre-define a de...

Re: Linux Mint 10 Julia and floppy disks

this may not be apparmor the main edition may remove it.
it could be libvirt which is used for virtualisation like KVM, VMware, Virtual box,...
I have seen a bug report on it today blocking all usb devices.
so try it with no VM started and you may have to stop the libvirt daemon too if it is running.

Re: Linux Mint 10 Julia and floppy disks

sounds like apparmor maybe blocking you.
try turning it off to test.
service apparmor stop (i think or try the services gui)

Re: KDE Crashes when I Use: Problem Akonadi

in system setting you can turn off nepomuk, it is a metadatabase for the desktop that indexes everything and hogs resources.
Akondi is a storage service for KDE4 PIM so if you dont use the PIM apps you could get rid of it all.

Re: Synaptic won't open

you have a left over lock file for apt-get so when ever synaptic/apt-get tries to open it sees the lock file and assumes someone else has is doing an update and so exits.
the fix it to delete the lock file.
# sudo rm -f /var/lib/apt/lists/lock
then try opening synaptic.

Re: Unable to get a wired connection

very strange.
from a terminal try restarting network-manager

$ sudo service nework-manager restart

also try rebooting your router/switch.
EDIT: I have seen some odd NM behavior lately, or it could be the pasmoid. but the above command fixes it.

Yes great idea. also look at the acer revo. but both systems maybe over kill for just a streaming audio server (but both are cool). I have a friend who now uses 2 acer revos as mythtv boxes. one is a backed server using 2 usb tv-tuner dongles and a single drive NAS drive holding saved movies/tv. the...
