Re: After 2 days Lucid Lynx

I installed Ultimate Edition 2.6 just to check out until Mint 9 is released and at least all the codecs, etc. came with the install. It is pretty good I think but I'll continue to stick with Mint. I don't know why but Mint always seems easier, faster, and smoother than any other distro. I will say t...

Re: Ubuntu upgrades

Just been reading the Ubuntu forums, lots of upgrades not going well. :( I have been perusing their forums and man are they having lots of issues with nvidia drivers. Is it me or do they always seem to have so many problems after every release? When karmic was first released, I decided to give it a...

Re: What will Mint 9 mean to the average user?

I'm sure you are much smarter than I am where computers and operating systems are concerned but I became so sick of all the issues in Windows [viruses, trojans, etc. and I had anti-virus and all the "protection" that never worked] that I googled Linux and picked Mint knowing zero. I installed it and...

Re: Linux mint 9 Release ?

Yes, I am excited about it also but I got some bad news today . The one program that I have that I like to use the most will not run under Linux, Wine or VM. I have been trying to get it to work for over a year and I give up. I asked the software manufacture and he suggested to re-install Windows a...

Re: Linux mint 9 Release ?

I am always excited about new releases but I am absolutely jacked about Mint 9. I have checked out a number of distros but Mint is the best of the bunch in my opinion. It is just very easy to use right out of the gate and really is trouble free. Bring it on guys!! :mrgreen:

Sound question

For some reason, my sound does not always work when I turn my laptop on. I have to restart it to get it to work and sometimes more than once. Does anyone know why it does this and what I can do to fix it? Thanks. :wink:

Converting Videos

I want to convert some videos to put on my Cowon d2+ player and for some reason the audio is way ahead of the video. I have used handbrake and avidemux. I tried Winff but an error comes up that says "unknown codec libxvid." I would really appreciate if someone could tell me what I need to do to fix ...

Re: Linux Mint 8 "Helena" released!

Another great release! Nice. Thanks for your team's efforts Clem! I particularly do not like the FRESH logo but replacing it with the boot LINUXMINT wallpaper suits my tastes just fine... so other than that minor detail, the install was definitely faster... Helena and I are gonna be friends for the...

Re: Linux Mint 7 'Gloria' KDE released!

I've always run live cd's first to check it out. I've never had this problem so thought I would ask.

Re: Linux Mint 7 'Gloria' KDE released!

Every time I try to use the live cd and download the necessary drivers, everything is aborted and I get this message:

could not resolve archive.ubuntu.com

It will not allow me to enable wireless and it shuts down. Anybody have a clue?

Re: Linux Mint 7 'Gloria' KDE released!

Hi Richy, I rebooted and it still is not enabled. I ran hardware drivers and it recommended that I activate the very same driver I have on LM 7 but when I click on activate, it starts downloading but a yellow box with an exclamation point comes up and says "sorry." Lol. What does that mean? I really...

Re: Linux Mint 7 'Gloria' KDE released!

Can someone tell me how to enable wireless on kde? I have edited my connection and put in the info but it is not even searching for wireless. I did not have this trouble at all with LM7. Thanks.
