Thanks for the ideas and help. I would like to try to have two .asoundrc files but I must confess I don't know how to fix such launchers. How should they look? And isn't it so that i need to restart the system or at least sound system so that new .asoundrc file is read and loaded? I hope you don't t...

For me it worked just fine. No errors, nothing. Worked like a breeze on my Celena. I think the gui and the way this version works is more consistent with the whole system. And it is also simpler to use thanks to simplified gui. Great job! A suggestion for someone with design skills - it would be nic...

Thanx a lot for the replies guys! I'm afraid it might be right what you wrote Husse. I have ESD enabled all the time and still no sound from more than one app at a time. I installed kcontrol and set the hardware to use the Enlightened Sound Daemon instead of automatic settings and then I don't get a...

Thank you all for your replies and great help!!! I'm back "to life" after long hours of experimenting what works and what doesn't, where on the hard disk I can place windows and where I can't etc. And since (for now) I don't have another hard disk to put into the computer I had to let windows have i...

Problems with sound solved

Hi everyone! I've been playing around recently and now I have a freshly installed Celena. Everything works perfect of course, except for one little issue. With the default configuration I have only stereo sound, but I can play it from more than one app at a time. I find it very useful since i can ch...

Thanks for your reply. I guess you confirmed my fears ;-) I've been googling and I've read so much about this issue, that I'm dizzy and still haven't found a(nother from what you gave) solution. But I just wonder (I don't know much of such things so don't laugh too much if it's a stupid idea) if i w...

Installed Celena, can't install windows

Hello everyone! I just made a nice fresh install of Celena on nicely newly partitioned harddisk. I followed the wiki about partitioning. Though not in 100%. The thing is, though Celena works very well, I cannot install windows xp. :oops: When I boot the pc with the cd in it just says something like:...

I fully agree with you. Xsane is a great tool and once I got into how to use it I don't think I'm ever going to scan things on windows again. (Especially that for some reason the HP drivers on windows installed in Norwegian or Danish - which I don't speak - and it's quite a lottery to set it the way...

As I have said I would like to take care of layout etc. I have an idea for a "MintMag template" but at the moment not much time to get it done. But of course as soon as I'm done with that I'll put it up here so we can perhaps discuss the idea and decide the necessary changes. I also think it would b...

I agree completely. It would be very useful to know what version there is available from the portal. Or maybe if there were a few different versions available (like wine, they release new versions all the time). I think it would also be worth mentioning about 'difficult' apps if one needs to uninsta...

Hi and welcome! :-)

I just wanted to add something from myself. I'm also new to Linux but I have tried a few different distros. Nothing's as good as Mint. Mint just rocks, it has all you need (at least all I need) and it works so smoothly. Yeah, it's a great distro!

Hmm, that's a tricky one, because when I enable ESD Skype stops working (no sound in, nor out). I was out for help on skype's forum and the only solution they could come up with was to disable ESD. Maybe I should nag on them a bit more then. :-) Edit (11 JUL): Yesterday I wasn't able to give a more ...

Sound related

I have been wondering for a while now if it's possible to play sound from more than one app at a time, ie. both amarok and skype or totem? I actually was able to have sound from both amarok and skype at the same time, but since I upgraded to skype 1.4 it's just a distant memory. I wouldn't like to d...

I really like the design you've done! And I'm very happy that the logo is already being used in Cassandra. I can't wait till the rest of your design is in use.

If you will need any help with coding for the web site (xhtml, css) there's no problem. I'll help as much as I can. :-)

OK, then I know. :-) Thank you! But when the new release will come is Envy gonna ask me if I want to update my nvidia drivers or do I need to do it myself? And if I want to install a new version of the driver do I need to uninstall the old one first? I read also (here: http://www.albertomilone.com) ...

From my experience (and after reading some forums about it) routers seem to stop working as they should after a while, meaning they lose connection easily and often or become very slow. You could maybe look for some forums/reviews about the router you have. It might be helpful
