Re: Konqueror stopped working. Can't figure out why.

Well, I found several references do the problem, but no suggestion did work. So, I finally unstalled the whole thing, but this time I installed kde-full and konqueror is working again. I found no way to fix it editing configuration files either directly or using the "settings" option. Anyw...

Re: skype can't connect

Same issue. Solution was reinstalling skype... and waiting from yesterday till today, when it started working again.
(weird thing is it kept working on windows. I could also access my account using the firefox. So, it was a linux-only issue)

Re: Any digital signer for PDF with Alladin token?

Is this the solution? http://code-industry.net/pdfeditor.php?-about&ver=1925 Could be. Nevertheless, reading the manual, I did not find any reference to signing the document, so, it seems I can't know for sure without paying US$ 49,95. On the other hand, I'rather have a free software (even thou...

Any digital signer for PDF with Alladin token?

After a long batle I have been able to make firefox recognize a token so as I can access some sites that required digital signature. Nevertheless, I have not been able to find a software (that runs on Mint, I mean) which will allow me to digitally sign a PDF file. Any hints? (Well, I found an ancien...

Re: Can't install Qiana on Dell Inspiron 15R 5537 A20

The problem continues. Hiting TAB and starting in compatibility mode, I was able to install Qiana. Full functionality, including touchscreen. Nevertheless, it was not recognized at boot time. Then I installed rEFInd and it appeared to do the trick. I could start windows 8.1 ok. When I tried to start...

Re: Can't install Qiana on Dell Inspiron 15R 5537 A20

Sorry, I don't know how to do this. If I am booting from a DVD, it does not allow me to do any editing. If I am booting from a pendrive, I can't find this /etc/default/grub As to the system that is running, I can't edit, because it freezes up after I read all those messages about not being able to s...

Lost Cinnamon Menu icon. I want it back where it used to be

Too quick clicking, I carelessly deleted the Menu icon that by default stands in the lower left corner of the screen (lower bar). I managed to bring it back, but on the right side and with a different icon. Now, I can't figure out how to move it to the left corner. Also, I can't figure out how to ch...

Re: Unable to install muon. How to solve this?

Thank you all, guys. Almost by accident I found a reference to software-properties-kde, then I ran
sudo apt-get install software-properties-kde

After that, I tried installing muon again and it worked.
