Re: Amarok crashes during synch

Are you using Amarok 2 or 1.4?

Amarok 1.4 integrates better with iPod than Amarok 2. That`s one of the reason I still use the old version of Amarok.

You can download the deb files here http://packages.debian.org/sid/amarok

Re: Sound lost after updates?

In my opinion, you don`t choose a distro. A distro chooses you when comes to Linux.

The user have to find the distro that better suits his needs and that fits his system.

I always liked OpenSuse but the distro that better fits my notebook is Linux Mint. And I learned to love this distro.

Re: Skype problems

Configuring Skype is a real problem in Linux. I suggest you try changing your sound input and output. And check your sound levels.

You can try changing your Wine configuration. Sometimes Windows 95 or Windows NT works better.

Re: Multimedia apps

For watching multimedia file I suggest VLC. Its interface is not attractive but you can download some skins to change it.

For burning CD/DVD, you can use Brasero or Gnomebaker. Both have simple interface and are easy to use.

You can also use DVD Shrink and DVD Decrypter under Wine. They work fine.

Direct upgrade is not very recommended. It would be better for you to make a fresh install.

Re: Help with Sound

It could be a problem with Pulseaudio. You can try removing it using synaptic.

About the graphics, you can try switching between the default driver and the proprietary driver.

Re: min7 crash to many times, 4 in 3 days

Okay so you have 3 partitions (1 for each OS).

Are you sharing any folder like /home for example with Ubuntu and Mint?

Re: Startup manager not loading

Typing "sudo startupmanager" is the same as typing "sudo" first and then "startupmamnager".

You'll have to type your passaword in both cases. In both cases you will login as root.

Re: mint 7 hang when run K3b

I suppose you are using GNOME instead of KDE.
K3b is a kde app so it might be a problem with libraries or something.

I suggest you to try Brasero or Gnomebaker.

There is also Nero for Linux.
