How-to? Verizon EVDO USB727 setup on Helena 8? EV-DO

Hello, I have a Dell Optiplex GX-280 tower running Mint Helena 8 and need to hook up a Verizon USB727 EVDO / EV-DO card to it. Running 'lsusb' in a terminal shows the USB727.

Re: Duplicate- non-post

Then I remembered Mint and that was an easy decision to go with Mint instead of Ubuntu. So yeah, I'm new here, bu...

Re: Greeting card software or online site?

In reply to mick55's question: until I get a successful post. The first time there was an error message. I waited a few hours, refreshed my browser on this page/site, did not see or find the post, so re-posted. Does that satisfy your curiosity? or complaint? Remember, “ Any fool can criticize, conde...

How Can I Get Full Featured Drag 'n Drop in Helena?

Does GNOME Helena Mint 8 have a full-featured drag and drop?

I've come to love KDE offering me the choice of moving, copying, linking to or canceling a file transfer.

Thank you,
Clingon

Hello, Am just getting my first Mint (GNOME) machine up and running and there are a lot of really nice features, but not everything. I'm attaching a screen shot of "KSnapshot" which as a default screendump application in KDE is far superior to the screenshot application in Helena GNOME. When I hit "...

"No Root File System Is Defined" - cannot install 8 Helena

Hello, Have a Dell GX280 tower with a SATA 250mb hard drive. Currently I am a SimplyMEPIS user, but want to learn a new distro and found a couple 'how-to' documents on setting up things with Mint, so would *love* to set this machine up with Mint. However, it appears Mint 8.0 skips past the partition...
