Shotwell can't publish Picasa Web albums

I"m using Mint 15 Cinnamon 64bit. I tried to publish photos from Shotwell 0.14.1 to Picasa Web albums and the publish function does not allow me to use Picasa Web albums. I checked the box for Picasa in preferences, but it does nothing. Is there a newer version of Shotwell that has fixed this bug?

Re: Distorted fonts

Hey, I got the same problem sort of. I am running Linux Mint 32 Bit on a Lenovo Thinkpad T60 with an ATI Mobility RADEON X1300 graphics adapter. The problem is not constant, though. It just happens after a while, especially after I have been running a couple of applications. Also, if move around th...

Re: Mint 15 upgrade to Mint 16 next year

That's what I thought. I always do clean installs, but sticking with a LTS version is the best option for most. :)

Mint 15 upgrade to Mint 16 next year

I'm running MInt 15 Cinnamon 64bit.

It only has nine months of support like Ubuntu 13.04. What happens after nine months? Upgrade?

How do you handle the new upgrade cycle?

Distorted fonts

I'm running Mint 15 Cinnamon 64bit on a Dell Optiplex 760 w/ ATI RV530 video card.

I've noticed lately that the fonts in the window manager look like parts of the fonts are broken off.

Would it be caused by video card, or a bug in Cinnamon?

Re: How to get desktop panel to show on second display

I've now found out how to make it work. In display settings I set the large display to on, then hit apply and then the whole desktop showed up on the large display and the laptop went black. When I unplug the vga plug the display comes back up on the laptop.

Re: How to get desktop panel to show on second display

I ran the command but can't see what the names should be. The laptop is the main display, it shouldn't make a difference which one is the main. If I plug in the vga cable it should just display on the larger display. Maybe it "shouldn't" -- but unfortunately, it does. The difference is Primary and ...

Re: How to get desktop panel to show on second display

Try restarting Cinnamon from the ^ symbol on the right of the panel. Failing that try logging out and back in. Tried both and still no difference, the taskbar is on the large display and when I open chrome browser it opens on the laptop screen instead on the LG. Then I hit restart Cinnamon and Chro...

Re: Mint 15 boot up troubles

Thanks for the advice, I did wipe the hdd and installed Mageia 3 on it and it had no trouble at all. Mageia runs fine. It looks like Mint 15 RC is not compatible with this PC. I will install the final on my Lenovo laptop running Mint 14. Will there be a upgrade option? I have never had a good experi...

Re: Mint 15 boot up troubles

Hello again, strange, because ubuntu 13.04 seems work for you (?). So, maybe the problem is not caused by your video card but rather by a faulty .iso and/or faulty burn? Maybe it's worth to download again from a different mirror and burn the file again (slow burn 2x)? Good luck! You may be right. I...

Re: Mint 15 boot up troubles

I can't boot into Mint 15 at all. I get a black screen of letters and numbers... This is a bad RC release for this video card, maybe the final version will update the kernel. I've used Mint for five years and never had this problem. Hope the final will fix the problem of this RC version. Otherwise I...

Mint 15 RC upgrade to final version

I'm installing Mint 15 RC. By running apt-get update and upgrade daily until the final version is released, I'll have the final version of Mint 15 like I did with Ubuntu 13.04 ?
