Re: udevd error during bootup, boot fail

Get Mint 17.2 on a USB-Stick and boot into the live system. Open "Computer" and your previos linux partition to get access to your files.

Re: VirtualBox in Mint 17.2

Maybe you forgot to make yourself member of the vboxusers group: 5. Add yourself to the group "vboxusers". By means of the terminal: sudo adduser yourownusername vboxusers Note: the username may only contain lowercase letters, because "under the hood" your username doesn't contain capital letters. S...

Re: How to Put an Executable Text File on the Desktop

Well that's very easy. Create a short-cut on the desktop to your script. You can use the GUI or open a terminal on the desktop and "ln -s /actual/path/to/my/script" But when you execute the link on your desktop your working directory will be the desktop, not the original directory of the script.

Re: How to Put an Executable Text File on the Desktop

You mean a script file?

Just put the script file on the desktop and mark it executable "chmod +x filename" and doubleclick it and choose "open in terminal" if necessary.

Don't forget the first line of a script file is always "#!/bin/sh"

Re: Thunderbird 38.2 has stopped showing notification

@George99: Once again: The notification pop up of TB has nothing to do with the notification applet. That's true but the point is both disappeared.

Re: Advice needed regarding splitting ethernet connection

The cheapest solution is to buy a 5 or 8 port switch connect your 5m cable to the switch and two additional short patch cables for your two computers.

Re: plymouth doesn't display the graphical boot splash.

Thanks I just wondered if I was the only one affected by this nasty bug now I know that we all lost the splash screen when moving away from kernel 3.13

Your solution works fine for me I hope this bug will also be fixed in Mint 17.3
