Cinnamon iphone bug?

I've read (http://www.dedoimedo.com/computers/linu ... sarah.html) that Cinnamon in LM 18 will no longer mount an iphone. Is this true, and if so, what is the work around?

Sounds great - perhaps Mint belongs on usb drive now!

Re: Hulu 17.3 / Cinnamon

I'd be shocked if you can't view Hulu on your computer with the Chrome browser. http://www.hulu.com/help/articles/197541. Install Chrome using the instructions at: https://sites.google.com/site/easylinuxtipsproject/chrome Chrome does the trick. Now I use Firefox for daily browsing and Chrome for hu...

Live USB and persistence

I'm interested in creating a live usb with persistence. Is any one familiar with - Live USB Install ( http://live.learnfree.eu/en/ )? I'm looking for a tool that will work when one is using a linux system. I've read unetbootin doesn't always set up the persistence properly. In the event I am forced ...

Re: Mint 17 Xfce - can't change keyboard shortcuts

there's nothing as annoying as having to re-learn shortcuts over and over; that's where custom bindings fit it, and need to be preserved/respected. Moreover, LM's "sticky SUPER_L" seems to be unique to LM: neither Xubuntu, nor UberStudent -- both shipping with the WhiskerMenu plugin installed & act...

[Solved] Hulu 17.3 / Cinnamon

Is it possible to watch Hulu while using 17.3 (Cinnamon)? I know Hulu works out of the box on Linux Lite (via firefox), but I would like to use LM (if at all possible).

Re: KDE Memory issue?

does the program "kwin_killer" sound familiar to anyone (I believe I saw it pop up in Conky). IIRC, that's KDE trying to kill a "misbehaving" application. Did you have, say, 400 web pages loaded in separate tabs in Firefox, lol? And do you run something like NoScript to automatically block the many...

KDE Memory issue?

Has any one had trouble with 17.2 KDE suddenly abandoning Memory in favor of Swap (1 gig+ > 450 mb Mem & 0% > 10% Swap). Naturally the result is something approaching a OS freeze: the mouse takes seconds to move, a browser window takes minutes to minimize, & the radiotray stream begins skipping like...

Re: Can I Turn Off Krunner's Email Indexing? [solved]

Search does not index every file on the hard drive. Its default configuration in most Linux distributions excludes some common patterns for backup files and configuration directories. You can change this in System Settings -> Desktop Search. Add folders to be excluded. If you want to turn off index...

Can I Turn Off Krunner's Email Indexing?

Is there a way to stop Krunner from finding indexed messages from Kmail? I saw someone suggest turning off Krunner's desktop search functionality, but that's what makes Krunner so great! Any ideas?

Re: Radiotray icon in KDE

Great post! I had a similar problem - a vertical line across the top third of my screen. Your solution worked immediately.

Re: Radiotray icon in KDE

What release are you running - 17.x? What icon theme? Did you do anything unusual when you set the system up (e.g. delete the panel or tray and then reactivate them)?

Radiotray icon missing in KDE (solved)

I just installed 17.2 KDE and it seems to work pretty well. Unfortunately, radiotray lacks the proper tray icon (it looks like blank document icon). I checked the .desktop file under /usr/share/applications and it lists "radiotray" as the correct icon. The homerun kicker menu has the correct icon to...

Re: Grub Install Error

Eventually I was able to get LM 17.1 Cinnamon installed - only to lose it to a graphics/Xorg glitch brought about by Ctl+Alt+Backspace (if I had a do-over I'd delete the shortcut). After toying with Netrunner for a couple days, I installed LM 17 Xfce. I used a traditional BIOS drive format (linux an...
