Re: Compiz settings keep resetting

Not sure what's going on here. Since I couldn't find another way, I disabled desktop effects in appearance preferences and I'm starting compiz from an autostart entry. Trouble is, every other boot I find the setting are reset again and when I look at appearance preferences again, desktop effects hav...

Re: How do I get rid of this?

Right-clicking on the icon does nothing, not even a context menu. Left clicking brings up a small window with some assistive technology related checkboxes but nothing to close/disable it. I have looked at the A/T settings in the control centre but there's nothing about a tray icon and no way to turn...

Many, many thanks.

[SOLVED] How do I get rid of this?

http://img25.imageshack.us/img25/1439/screenshotam.png I presume it's something to do with assistive technologies or whatever but I cannot find anything in the startup programs or any running processes in the system monitor to work out what is running and how to get rid of it. Although not particul...

Re: Synchronizing data between two PC's.

Hmm, Unison seems more for "realtime" synchronization which I don't really need.
I'm looking more for a command like rsync that I can run as and when needed, which wouldn't be THAT often.

Not very customizer friendly

After getting the latest Mint installed I set about customizing a few things to my liking but I'm finding quite a bit has changed. 1) The new grub, I'm not liking it much. The missus can't be doing with all these wierd kernel numbers and such on the boot menu and I had to do quite a bit of reading u...

Compiz settings keep resetting

I set the option in the appearance preferences to custom for desktop effects, as I did with the previous Mint install but after a reboot all my settings revert back to the default setup.

Can't quite pinpoint why.

[SOLVED] Synchronizing data between two PC's.

I have used rsync several times to make incremental backups/sync certain data to an external drive. I would like to be able to use it to syncronize the family photo collection between mine and my missus' computers. We are both using the latest Mint 8 and we both have static IP's set, one ending *99 ...

A couple of questions about upgrading and home partition

First some background: I'm not new to linux and have used every major distro at some point and many lesser known ones, as well as various *BSD distros. Most of the distro hopping was to just try out different ones and to learn as much as possible about linux generally but I eventually settled on usi...

Sorry for lack of info: konqueror, firefox and opera all using the same plugin (I've gone through my whole filesystem looking for duplicates or older versions).

Re: JWM on Mint?

Yes I did eventually get it up and running on Mint and looked nothing like the puppy one, nor nearly as fast.

Decided to stick with puppy for a while on the old laptop but eventually gave up on the laptop altogether as puppy was infuriating with certain things.

Re: Problems with webcam and flashplayer

Thanks for the link but unfortunately it didn't help. After changing the webcam mode to V4L1 in gstreamer properties, clicking on test left me with an even more unusable webcam. I decided to give it a try on tinychat anyway but when selecting my cam it is still listed as V4L2 and was still corrupt. ...

I am able to use my webcam perfectly fine in every app I've tried (amsn, kopete, gyachi, cheese etc) but when trying to use my cam in flash based websites it displays but the video is corrupt (which varies between coloured blocks, wavy lines etc. All unwatchable). Examples of this are tinychat and s...

Can vlc be forced to use a unified interface? I can't stand these apps that have bits of em all around the desktop. By unified I mean the movie plays in the same window as the controls? Maybe I'm a bit backwards but I honestly cannot grasp the point of having a window for the controls and then the m...

Screensaver interupts totem?

I have gotten round to watching a pile of DVD's but I'm having a very irritating problem. My screensaver is set to activate after 15 minutes idle time. Although the screensaver doesn't actually start, the screen does blank during playback of DVD's in totem, in full-screen mode at least. Surely this ...
