trying to remove a ppa (terminal stuff)

I was trying to get pcsx2 through terminal and added the gwibber-daily/ppa. Still can't get pcsx2 now, but thats the least of my worries. I'm trying to get rid of the PPA because every time I check for updates I get this: W: Failed to fetch http://ppa.launchpad.net/gwibber-daily/ppa/ubuntu/dists/tru...

Re: Bootable USB question

It sounds to me like you could simply download the *.deb file for Chrome beforehand, and keep it handy for your installation, then install it offline using Gdebi package installer. I may be mistaken, but I think installing from the Chrome *.deb will also add Chrome to the Mint software repository a...

Re: Bootable USB question

I appreciate the feedback. I wanted to set someone up with Mint but the WiFi is awful where I'll be doing it. He was adamant about having chrome. I'll just have to mobile hotspot it.

Bootable USB question

Wasn't sure if I was supposed to put this in the Newbie board or the Boot board, but it's just a question I'm asking for anyone with experience: Say I create a bootable Linux USB drive, with some persistent storage. Now, say I install a few programs (google chrome, dropbox, etc...) onto the USB-base...

Disk Defragmentation

So if you haven't been following me in any capacity, I'm using a PC from 2004 which originally came stock with Windows XP and a old school Hard drive disk before SSD was a thing. Back in those days, you would occasionally have to run a disk defragmentation program to sort the files within the disk f...

LibreOffice calc formulas?

I just started using Linux and I love it, but I was curious about something. I'm sure I'm not the only one, but I'm living in a world full of Microsoft users. It's rare, but once in a while I may need to prepare spreadsheets that do calculations, and possibly share them. That being said, does libreo...

wow. That was much easier than anything I read on the internet O.O just applied the changes. Hopefully my performance improves

Edit:: ok its applied and updated. Would a reboot be necessary? Should it say something different in the terminal?

I'm running Linux Mint XFCE 32 bit if it helps According to the terminal, my Graphics Card reads: NVIDIA G...

Re: Audio balance settings

Nevermind, I found something.

Pulseaudio volume control (pavucontrol)

In my case, the "front left" made the entire audio sound like it was underwater. When I lowered the volume on that, the rest of the audio came in fine. It seems like it's just an issue specific to this PC.

Audio balance settings

When I picked up this PC, it was originally running Windows XP. The sound wasn't coming through properly so I went to the audio options (where you see all the sliders that go Left to Right), and moving them to the left fixed the audio and allowed all the frequencies to come through. 3 Gigs of RAM an...

Re: Will it run well? Dell Dimension 4700 (2004)

have a bit too many old PCs here 8) would try for 1Gb ram, as those chips ( 2 x 512MB ) may be easier to get. - rather than 2Gb, how big was the HDD ?. is it the style, where the monitor sat on top of the box?. It's a 30 GB hard drive (I never really needed much space) and the desktop stands vertic...

Will it run well? Dell Dimension 4700 (2004)

It's running a Pentium 4 CPU 2.80 GHz 2.79 GHz bus speed is 800 MHz L2 cache 1 MB Hyperthreading 32 bit It's currently got a mere 256MB RAM but I'm going to upgrade it to 2...

Heyo

Brand new to Linux, and Mint. I've tried Ubuntu for a spell but couldn't stand how slow it was, so here I am! After trying several releases, I'm committing to Xfce 64 bit. I'm running a vanilla xfce on my chromebook so I'm more or less used to the interface, and xfce was the only release I could get...
