Can't get Daryna to install

I've tried repeatedly to install Daryna without much luck. I've tried several different downloads and keep getting the same errors. The disks work fine when installing onto another PC so I assume that the problem is my PC setup. Celena installs OK and I'm using this at the moment. The problem... I i...

Can't get Daryna to work

I've downloaded the new Mint 4.0 Beta (Gnome) a number of times yet and have not been able to get it to install. When I run the disk I get the option to install after which I get a load of text data which means nothing to me. I currently use Celana which installed and runs without a problem. I've do...

Problem solved (sort of !)

I got fed up trying to get my Cali to work with Linux. I sent an e-mail to Rio asking for help. They ignored it. If Rio can't be bothered with me I can't be bothered with Rio. Bought a cheap (£6) mp3 player. Plugged it in - works! £6 for 512mb and it includes an FM radio. Sold! If anyone ever does...

Rio Cali mp3 player

I'm getting really frustrated trying to install my Rio Cali mp3 player. I've installed rioutil and jrioutil as advised. I can get access to the player on the command line through rioutil but cannot get jrioutil to recognise the player. Has anyone managed to get this player to work in Mint? I note th...

I used the 'other' OS to change the names and Mint reads them OK. Problem solved.

GUI works

Thanks for the help. I spotted my error after much hair pulling. The file I downloaded was called jrioutil-1.0.2.jar (not jrioutil.jar) and had been saved to my downloaded directory. I moved it to my username directory and ran java -jar jrioutil-1.0.2.jar and hey presto it works. Maybe I'll get the ...

Rio Cali works (ish)

Thanks for the prompt response. Using the rioutil program I am able to access the mp3 player via the command line. (nearly there!) Couldn't understand exactly how to run the gui. I downloaded the jar file. Saved it to desktop. When I click on it the program wants to extract (I assume therefore that ...

Newbie frustrations

I've been using Mint for the past couple of weeks. I have used a number of other distros before but am very happy with Mint. However, there are a number of issues that are stopping me from making the break from the 'other' OS. As a relative newcomer I simply do not fully understand the directions th...
