Re: Mint 13: AMD/ATI graphics drivers and Cinnamon problem

Oh yes, thanks for advising about the numbering scheme! So should I mark 3.11.0 "for installation" and mark 3.2.0 "for removal"? In the one action? Or do it as separate actions? This is my first time doing such a thing through Synaptic. PS: I am getting a warning that I am "about to install software...

Re: Mint 13: AMD/ATI graphics drivers and Cinnamon problem

Thanks for all of that information. I have been sticking with Mint 13, since Mint 17 is only about 4 months away, and that will be LTS. Will consider upgrading to Mint 16 if I can't find a solution soon. Could someone provide me with instructions for rolling back to kernel 3.12? I haven't been able ...

Mint 13: AMD/ATI graphics drivers & Cinnamon problem [solved

I recently did a system update using Update Manager, and downloaded all of the recommended updates. Now my system is behaving strangely. The three main problems, that I can see are: By default, Cinnamon is not the interface that launches with Mint 13 on startup. Instead GNOME/GNOME fallback mode is ...

Re: Starting Skype causes wlan to disconnect (ath9k_htc)

Spoke too soon :( Skype no longer seems to instantly cause my wi-fi to crash/disconnect. Encouragingly, it allows me to log into Skype, and see which of my contacts are online. (This is something that wasn't happening when I first posted this bug report). However, it is still crashing/disconnecting ...

Re: Starting Skype causes wireless to disconnect (ath9k_htc)

Just advising that this problem seems to have resolved itself. Possibly due to recent packages downloaded through Update Manager.

Will mark this as '[solved]', and only post here again if the problem flares up again.

Re: Starting Skype causes wireless to disconnect (ath9k_htc)

OK, I managed to get the internet working again, after monkeying around with commands from this thread . However, I am relunctant to open Skype again (due to the recurring problems with this software - and I now have work to do, so don't want to mess around with my PC right now). Here is the current...

Re: Wireless problems in Mint 13 with ASUS N13 (0b05:17ab)

Hi Minterator. I am not sure I have Bluetooth functionality on this computer. So I don't know if that is my problem.

I am still having the Skype problem mentioned above. But I have started a new thread on this forum dedicated to it. Hope readers of this thread can assist me.

I am running Linux Mint 13 (64 Bit, Maya) with the current repository version of Skype installed (Version: 4.1.0.20.0-0ubuntu0.12.04.2). I get internet through a TP-Link TL-WN822N v2 USB wireless adapter ( Atheros AR9287 chip / ath9k_htc driver) My wireless internet is otherwise working fine... ...u...

Re: Wireless problems in Mint 13 with ASUS N13 (0b05:17ab)

Thanks but those instructions don't seem appropriate for my installed version of Skype (4.1.0.20). I do not see any checkbox relating to "enable uPnP". Instead, all I see in the 'connection' area is a field for "Use port xxxxx for incoming connections", plus a drop-down and 4x fields relating to pro...

Hi AlbertP, you were correct. It does seem faster after a reboot. Current speeds from speetest.net: Ping: 15 ms Download speed: 5.40 Mbps Upload speed: 11.96 Mbps (I also got a download speed of 16.86 Mbps earlier, although that was with a door open between the router and my computer which is normal...

Re: Wireless problems in Mint 13 with ASUS N13 (0b05:17ab)

Thanks caf4926, that seemed to work. (I had previously tried modprobe, but omitted the -rv and -v components). My internet speed still seems quite slow. I am having trouble streaming audio, yet a Windows Vista laptop right next to my Wireless adaptor can comfortably stream video. Here are 2x results...

AlbertP , I inserted that line of text into the .conf file. (The file was blank up until I entered that string). However, my USB adapter still doesn't seem to have a driver associated with it.

I'm not sure I understand your first question. There is only one button/switch on the adapter for QSS (TP-Link's "Quick Security Setup" for when connecting to their routers).
