Re: creative zen and gnomad

Thanks to all - got it working!

Found the .deb files with Google - installed no problem with GDebi (although double-clicking opened them in archive manager, but right-clicking showed GDebi there, so, still, thanks).

Great community work.

Ian :D

SOLVED - creative zen and gnomad

Hello everyone

Just got back after a year with Win7 - I seem to remember Gnomad working with my Creative Zen player, but it doesn't seem to be in the repos any more and neither Banshee nor Rhythmbox will recognise the player out of the box as it were. Can anyone help, please?

Re: USB drive, was usable NTFS, now problematic ext3?

Mick a couple of answers; I think so; although what you said would happen didn't quite - i was asked for the password after entering the first line rather than the second you assume correctly now for your requested outputs: ian@ian-laptop ~ $ cat /etc/fstab # /etc/fstab: static file system informati...

USB drive, was usable NTFS, now problematic ext3?

I formatted an external USB drive from NTFS to ext3 so I could archive my Humax Foxsat HDD recordings. Having watched my Cricket, I wanted to delete the files but bringing the drive and my trusty Linux laptop together does not seem to be working for me, even though I used GParted on the laptop to fo...

Re: It's the little things...

beefstu - I did as you suggested but the menu opens where the Menu button is (in other words as if you clicked on the button) - what I want to happen is that it opens where the mouse is, with a smaller menu (like pressing Alt-F1); Mint7 lets me do this but not Mint8

Where's my program?

Just installed normalize-audio via synaptic package manager (or thought I did) but now can't find it anywhere? Is it a CL app because I wouldn't have installed it if I'd known?!

It's the little things...
