Re: Mint Code Editor for Personal Web Site

It would help to know more about your system setup. If you run " inxi -Fxzd " from the console terminal prompt, highlight the results, copy and paste them back here, that should provide enough information. There are many posts in this forum on this topic already, if you search for them. 1.) Most we...

Mint Code Editor for Personal Web Site

I have been doing ASP and C# / SQL at work for several years, but mostly emphasizing desktop apps for internal operations. But my personal web site was done a long time ago using simple html and some very basic javascript. It's done, I've cleaned house and I have a fresh slate to work with on my hos...

Re: How Come I Don't Have Any Questions?

When I jumped to Linux Mint for good I expected a long learning process and many small hurdles. What I got instead was a well configured OS that worked so well (for me) that I ended up upgrading my equipment. Now it just sits there, runs 24/7 and only requires a weekly backup. The worst problem I h...

Re: How Come I Don't Have Any Questions?

Yeah, I'm a new user to Linux, myself, and I've found it to be quite polished and easy to use. I'm quite pleased with it. I had some trouble establishing shares between my Linux and Windows machines, but that was mostly due to following some old advice (and some new bad advice) and attempting to us...

Re: How Come I Don't Have Any Questions?

But, if you would, to what do you attribute this? Partly my desire to make the switch, but mostly to the "state of the art" that has been achieved with Linux to date, especially with Mint. The other major factor is the excellent help and responses I got on this forum and on another forum to help me...

How Come I Don't Have Any Questions?

I just wanted to let you people know that I have been running Mint (Cinnamon) now for about 6 months, maybe a bit longer, and it is running great. I am not having any problems with the machine, no malware, no virus crap, nothing I want to do that I can't do, everything I asked how to do has been ans...

Re: Main Volume Slider Control Won't Stay?

You have very most likely launched graphical programs with the sudo command. Problem is, that sudo leads to the result, that inside of your home files and folders get written, which afterwards belong to root with the consequence, that as user you are not allowed to change them. What we did with the...

Re: Main Volume Slider Control Won't Stay?

Did all of that, then shut down and power off, cold reboot, and when I logged back in my volume slider was still at the same setting where I left it..... 77%. 8) I will want to see if it survives two or three more cold restarts, but I think you have solved it.

Correct the wrong ownership: Mark the following command completely and make sure, that you do not miss any sign, than press ctrl-c find /home/$SUDO_USER ! -user $SUDO_USER -exec chown $SUDO_USER:$SUDO_USER '{}' \; Open a terminal and enter sudo -i and press the Enter-key; you get prompted for your ...

Hi "soundchaser59", I just read your post and the good replies to it. Here are my thoughts on this as well. 1.) Multi-Platform Youtube-DL GUI: (youtube-dlg) (shows up in my Internet Menu) This can download (save) a video and or just its audio track http://www.webupd8.org/2014/03/multi-platform-yout...

Audio Capture App?

There is a plugin add-on for Firefox that lets me download the video clip from a youtube video. Ok, fine enough......but I don't want to use Firefox as my default. I am starting to like Chromium, but there is no such plugin add-on for Chromium. The reason is I look up specific tunes on youtube and i...

SOLVED: Main Volume Slider Control Won't Stay?

Every time I start up I notice my main volume slider is always defaulted to 0%. How do I get it to persist after i set it? I want to set it to about 70-75% and have it retain that setting even after a shut down and cold reboot.

Re: Brasero Made DVD, But It Won't Boot?

Two issues: 1- If burned properly the DVD should contain a bunch of files and not just the .iso file - does it? IOW, with xfburn - similar to brasero - it's "Burn Image" vs "Data Compilation": the 2nd just copies the iso file, which is wrong for this use. 2- brasero is rather flakey - you might try...

Brasero Made DVD, But It Won't Boot?

I tried to use Brasero to burn a Windows 7 iso to a dvd. I needed to put the dvd in another machine and boot to it so I could repair the machine using the start of the Windows install routines. But the DVD will not boot in the other machine. I burned the same iso file to dvd on another Windows machi...

Wireless Connection Works But Only for Root

I believe the reason my wireless network is not accessible to my standard user is because of the wireless router security options. When I log in as root, the wireless connection screen displays WPA2 as one of 2 or 3 different options, and that matches my home router. When I log in as my own user, th...

Re: Change Partition Format to MBR Without Data Loss?

I am astonished about the request. To my knowledge Windows 7 is not even able to get installed with 32 bit architecture on UEFI. So I wonder, if you are really sure, that you have a GPT table? Other question is, how big si the drive? My last post revealed that I've already determined it is an MBR f...
