Re: Terminal Opens in / NOT Users ~

Here's a thought, are you starting up "Root Terminal" or "Terminal"? There is a difference. It's official: I'M A TOOL! You are SPOT ON, but I'm still having a bit of trouble. When I start a terminal in my menu I go right to my Home (~) folder. HOWEVER, when I start a terminal using my keyboard shor...

Re: 64 bit or not to be?

A few other things come to mind. Did you check the md5sum? What speed did you burn the DVD at? Have you tried it on another computer? What system are you trying to boot via DVD?

Re: No audio sound

Hi all, I have linux mint 10 Julia and for some odd reason my audio isn't working. I tried playing a track and nothing comes out of the speakers yet the volume of both the player and the speakers are at a non-muted volume. What do I do to bring back the sound? Is there a Mixer (Speaker Icon) in you...

Re: Update fails to fetch package and some index files

LM 10, 64-bit. Don't know if this is unique to the 64-bit repositories. This has happened 3 times in the last 2 or 3 weeks. I run the updater several times to allow some that failed to finally download, and eventually everything is happy. However, today it doesn't seem to want to resolve. Here's to...

Re: Right click annoyance

No I haven't tried one but I don't have another. You think it may be hardware related? In windows there is no such problem so maybe the kernel for my mouse has a problem? From what I gather its the kernel that makes all hardware usable in linux but I may be wrong. There should be a setting in mouse...

If I might add to this:

After you make any removals.

This very cool the liquorix works slightly slower than the other kernel, at least to carry, since the opnoffice, flying. Also this fix me, the sound problems in my laptop.

Re: are the temperatures info gathered by lm-sensors reliabl

The software can only report what the sensors tell it. Sounds like you need another fan over the motherboard. My core 2 duo puts out 47 C. That's in a laptop.

Re: How to make each package upgrade to save it first

If you use something like sbackup and designate this folder to be backed up, the older versions will not be removed, it will backup whatever is new and leave the rest depending upon your setup. You decide what is removed, when. It is called incremental backup.

You said you did not uninstall Gnome before installing Xfce. What have you removed since then?
