Re: Firefox Add-on Issues... (1-Click Weather)

SOLVED. After some searching I discovered that I needed to change the permissions for the file: userconfig116.xml From Read Only to Read/Write. For other newbies from the Windows Side, I found the file by opening File Browser, then "Go", then search for files. Mint didn't find the file the first tim...

Firefox Add-on Issues...

Oh minty ones... there's probably a very simple solution to this:

I've noticed that a number of my Firefox add-ons aren't functioning. For instance, Tabmix, though installed, does nothing. What am I missing?

Re: LiveCD won't Boot?

Yeah, the only thing that doesn't makes sense is why the bios (during boot up) would care what happened while Linux was running? Correlation is not necessarily causation. But I don't have any other explanation. As soon as I properly ejected the original DVD, everything started working again. By the ...

Re: LiveCD won't Boot?

OK, Mint booted and it's working now. Here's where it gets weird. About a three days ago, I plopped in a DVD (Movie) and never finished it. I hibernated the computer. Then I forgot that I had hibernated the computer and wanted to try Mint. So, I turned on the laptop and before Grub kicked in, I phys...

Re: LiveCD won't Boot?

OK. Sorry I haven't responded sooner. Here's what I'm finding out. My drive can read the contents of DVDs, but it can't read CDs whether they're -r +r or standard audio CDs. This is beginning to look like hardware failure (within the last three weeks). So... I suppose I could burn my Mint ISO to a D...

Re: LiveCD won't Boot?

I have had bad iso's from a Mint mirror. Re-download and burn DAO (Disk At Once) Thanks, but this isn't the problem. A.) I can use the LiveCD on my other laptops. B.) My Torox LiveCD also doesn't boot up on the problem laptop. I wouldn't bring this problem to Mint, except that my goal is to install...

Re: LiveCD won't Boot?

OK, let me ask this question another way...

Is it possible that grub is somehow interfering with the LiveCDs?

Re: LiveCD won't Boot?

Is the CD a -R or a -RW? -R. It's the same brand of CD I used to install Ubuntu just three weeks ago. Is the CD a high speed one that won't work in an old drive? Again, it's the same brand of CD used to install Ubuntu. I can't see that this would be an issue. Have you tried creating another CD on a ...

LiveCD won't Boot?

Here's what I know: It's NOT a bad ISO - Checksum verifies a good copy and it boots on my other machines. It's NOT a bad CDRom. I can play DVDs and mount the CD (and view files). The BIOS is set to boot from the CDROM first. I have checked and rechecked this. My Torox LIVEDVD also won't boot on the ...
