[SOLVED] mint 18.3 mate-panel applets missing

Yup, I screwed things up. 2 week old install of mint mate 18.3. I was futzing around and trying to get things visually the way I wanted them. Anyway for one reason or another I installed MATE TWEAK and something happened to my panels. Of course I had to see what all the setting did. Under Interface>...

Re: banshee 2.6.2 record extention

Well, never got audio recorder to play well with rhythmbox. It would record the first song and save it. Then the next song would start and the meta data would be passed to audio recorder where it would show up in the filename box but when RB started the next song the filename wouldn't be updated and...

Re: python purge oh crap

Going for the reinstall option. Couple of questions. I've seen a few articles on reinstalling but retaining all your files, programs etc using the backup feature and installing "along" without formatting the partition. Does this work and would it solve my problems if it does work? I'm going to backu...

python purge oh crap

Ok, ran this command "sudo apt purge -f python3" while trying to fix a problem. Not the first time following advice on a forum caused me problems. I was trying to install rhythmbox on my mint 17.3 system. Go some message about expecting python 3.* but bot 3.* or some such. That's basically why I tri...

@phd21

Thanks, I'll check it out. I didn't see your reply when I last visited this thread, sorry. rhrthmbox and audio recorder are NOT working as expected, it's reading the song names, making files but only 17Kb with no audio. Gonna check out your link and fiddle some more.

Thanks

Re: banshee 2.6.2 record extention

Thanks. Tried that but from what I saw it's one continuous file rather than broken into individual songs. Is that correct. Update: I was at the end of a very long day when I posted this question. I neglected to give mint version info mint 17.2 Mate is what I'm running. This is how tired I was. Mint ...

[SOLVED] banshee 2.6.2 record extention

Love Mint. The only thing I even keep a VM of windows for is audible (tunebite) to record music from streaming sites. I've been researching for the last hour how to do this and I found information on banshee and rhythmbox stream recording. I tried installing RB but got some weird python error resear...

Thanks for the reply. I was afraid of that. I've been reading a bit and I guess I'll have to read a bit more to find the right distro.

mint ok for Insignia 11.6" NS-P11W7100?

Just picked this up for cheap. Don't really like how Win10 is running on it. I would like to install linux instead. As I run Mint Mate 17.2 on my old desktop I would like to stick with Mint. Is there a version of mint suitable for this tablet/laptop thing? Really don't want to loose basic touch scre...

Re: Sharing usb drive plugged in linux with windows machine

This is perfect advice even today. I've been struggling with this for a while. It was just today that I noticed the shares that didn't work were on my USB hard drive. Finding this thread let me keep what little hair I haven't pulled out.

Re: can't add or delete files on sony walkman nzw-e353

I don't see any reason why it will not allow a file to be copied or removed. It's mounted read/write and your user/group is set which should allow for full privileges. Try copying a file to it from the terminal using -v option as in cp -av /path/to/file /media/WALKMAN/MUSIC/Spokenword and check the...
