Re: Release: Linux Mint 10 RC

I have had no end of trouble trying (unsuccessfully) to install LM 10 today. I've spent the whole day trying to install it. And I do mean the entire day! It wouldn't be so bad if it works, but that's the problem! It does not work properly! :evil: I have a dual boot computer; Ubuntu and Linux Mint (o...

Re: Panel problem in LM-10

Weird!

Just as a long-shot, I tried to drag a desktop launcher to a panel, and then I was able to have a panel launcher!

It didn't behave like that with Mint 9.

Lots of fun!

[Solved] Panel problem in LM-10

Hi!

I wanted to add some menu items to my panel. I right click, and I get the "add to panel" option along with the other. But when I select that, nothing happens! I can add launchers to the desktop that way, but for some reason it won't put menu items on my panel...

[Solved] Mint 9 Themes in Mint 10; how do you do that?

Well! It's taking me far longer to upgrade to Mint 10 from Mint 9 than expected. All day, in fact. I think that has more to do with the age of my computer and trying to keep it a dual boot system. But I digress ... But anyway, I rather like the Shiki-Wise theme that came with Mint 9, but I can't see...

Oh Bugger! :cry: I must've done something wrong! I thought I was following the directions nicely to upgrade LinuxMint to version 10. However... [*] after the first go, I went to reboot and on the dual boot option it showed Linux Mint 9; no sign of Linux Mint 10. [*] On the second go; same result. [...

Re: New LinuxMint version

You don;t say what your old version was. But if your original set up used a data partition mounted on the directory " /home " , it is easy. With the new installer going , when you come to the partitioning part , just carefully select your original root partition , and set it t mount on " / " and fo...

[Solved] New LinuxMint version

Can someone tell me of a [relatively] painless way to upgrade to the new version of Linux mint on dual boot computer?

Even if it's slow, that's fine; I just want to avoid copying all my user files first and redoing the installation from scratch with a new version...

Re: Music Drops my Internet connection EVERY TIME!

Sounds like Rhythmbox is trying to lease a new address or something. Are you using the same player in mint or ubuntu? if yes then try alternate player. if no then No matter what music player your dropping your internet. Then my only guess would be a hardware issue in soundcard , like a short sendin...

Nope! Not using those services!

And even if I do reboot the computer right away, it's still several minutes before I get my Internet back.

Really annoying, that!

Re: Trouble with Rythm Box

No idea about your net connection, but as for the cd not finishing ripping, 4-5 years is a good life for a cd/dvd drive, laser could be a bit worn, so either run a laser-cleaning disk thru it, or get another dvd drive would be a good idea. Replacing it based on age alone would be an idea. The pc it...

Re: Trouble with Rythm Box

Odd. I can think of no reason this would affect your net connection. At all. What hardware do you have? How old is your machine? Is your cd/dvd drive new? Anything you can think to mention that might be relevant? This is rather odd. It's really quite frustrating, this one. My computer is about 4-5 ...

[Solved] Music Drops my Internet connection EVERY TIME!

This is extremely frustrating! For the last couple of weeks, I have been trying to get my music collection from the Windows version iTunes working in Rhythmbox. HOWEVER -- It does not matter what I do, whether I'm playing music, ripping CDs, or doing anything with sound files in any format (in eithe...

Re: Trouble with Rythm Box

The info for albums is read from an on-line database, so if the albums don't exist (aren't added) in the database, then yes, they will show as unknown. Shouldn't need to add things one at a time, with Rhythmbox open should just select Music (left, top) and Import Folder, adding all your stuff that ...

Re: Trouble with Rythm Box

No idea, don't use iTunes, but Rhythmbox handles my 13,000+ song collection fine. ( iripped them all with either Asunder, or Rubyripper) This problem doesn't make sense to me either! All I know is that my Internet connection kept closing out whenever I started using Rhythmbox. It seems to be okay n...

Re: Trouble with Rythm Box

Thanks for the ripping suggestions. Unfortunately, that didn't do much; the ripping software didn't seem able to recognize CD information either. :? I strongly suspect that my having imported my old Windows iTunes library in one go into the /Music/ folder might have been the problem. One folder in p...

Re: Trouble with Rythm Box

Additional:

I thought it was just Rhythmbox that was being difficult, so I tried Amarok to see what happens. Amarok won't recognize any CD I put in it either. Although the existing songs in the /Music/ folder seem fine.

Could this be an Internet issue, somehow?

[Solved] Trouble with Rythm Box

Hi! I've been trying to copy some of my CDs onto Rhythm Box. But something odd happens after I copy 1-2 CDs. First, It won't recognize the CD at all; it does not recognize Artist, Album title, or track names. Not only that, if I type in all that information manually, and then copy the CD, my Etherne...
