They work in my media player and now sometimes (after many reboots) work.


Now my login sound works, but my other sounds don't work. The only other sounfds i get are when recording line-in on audacity. Playing music files dosen't work.

program for electrical certificates

Hi, i was wondering if there was a program for creating electrician's certificates for linux. I know there is a program for windows and would like to know if this program exists. The NIC provide a program, but that is windows only and won't work.



Thanks for your help.

Re: Start the name suggestions for Mint 8

I agree to Helena but i think that 'H' and 'I' are hard for girl's names, so mint 9 will also be hard (especially for a name ending in a) :D
