Re: update problem

You are not alone!

I had the same problem today. Just keep trying periodically. It will come right.

Or, to put it another way, don't "sweat it". 8)

Re: Listing Installed Applications

I tried this (sudo dpkg --get-selections > installed-software) just to see what would happen.

It saves a file to your /home. The file had 1596 lines!

ymmv :wink:

Re: How to kill what can't be killed ?

Could you please explain "kill kill"?

I am familiar with "kill", and "killall", but "kill kill" confuses me!

Re: Can't view a web site properly

Failed with Opera, too. Same result.

Also very slow to load the page.

Perhaps it knows that I don't drink vodka? :?

Re: flash issues with Mint

Has anyone seen this?

It may be a solution to the problem. It is a stand alone downloader and player.

Another option could be Miro.

Re: Video downloads

Where were you trying to install from? Try it from the "software manager" in the main menu. The reason I suggested Miro is because I read your original post and tried the link you gave. It works. Install Miro. :wink: Think I'll try that now! Thanks ... I must be missing out some simple step, because...

Hi Maggy,

Google "LG Bluebirds"

There is a software/firmware update available. Make sure you get the one for your particular model.

Hope that helps!

I agree, personally I think its an undesirable feature and should be changed.

If this leaves the system vunerable, then yes.

Mintupdate doesn't ask for password

I updated some files, and then a few hours later, I noticed the padlock was open again. When I clicked on it, it opened the update window without asking for the password. Is this normal? My computer has not been rebooted for two days now, and the update window still opens without asking for the pass...
