Unable to unmount external hard drive

Hi guys, hopefully this is the right forum. I think it is an OS/software issue, not a hardware issue. I have an external hard drive which I use mostly for backup purposes. It has been connected to my systems continuously for months, but now I want to disconnect it. In the File Browser I tried clicki...

Thank you, this worked in combination with the original instructions from Enialls.

Re: the ultimate newbie question: broken packages?

Enialls, I am getting the following message after doing both those things:
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 25 not upgraded.
It seems to be getting the list of available updates, but not installing.

Re: the ultimate newbie question: broken packages?

Hi guys, Just letting you know that I am suffering the same problem right now. The only thing 'non-standard' I can remember doing with my PC recently is getting a friend to upgrade my Wine to version 1.3.1, which I don't think was an automatic option from Mint's updates. I'm running Linux Mint 9 Gno...

Re: Suggestion for improving 'flat' sound dynamics

Are there any audio equalizers, etc that I should look at for Linux Mint?

I know that after my friend installed Linux Mint for me, he uninstalled Pulse audio, as it was causing problems. How do I tell what I am running instead? Is there anything I can do with that to improve my audio performance?

Suggestion for improving 'flat' sound dynamics

Hi guys, I have changed from a Windows system, with my preferred audio software being Winamp. I found a great plugin for Winamp called Enhancer 017 which greatly improved the sound dynamics when listening to audio. Music has had a more 'flat' sound since changing to Linux Mint. Just wondering if any...

Re: Mint Update/ Install Updates not working

Guys, a friend has helped me fix this problem on my computer. Here is my attempt at explaining the problem/solution. When Linux Mint was first installed on my computer, the system name was 'LeanGreenMachine' (set by the folks that built my computer). I wasn't too fond of this name, so changed it to ...

Re: Mint Update/ Install Updates not working

Hi guys, just wanted to let you know that I seem to be having the exact same problem as fixrman. This is a relatively fresh install of Mint - completed less than 7 days ago. On 2 occasions I ran mintUpdate from the system tray near the clock. However, it has not been responding for the last 3-4 days...

Hi guys, I logged into Linux Mint this morning (Sunday 13 September) and installed all the available mintUpdates. I spent the afternoon listening to music, and then turned my computer off when I went out to dinner. When I returned home and logged into Linux Mint again, all sounds have stopped workin...
