PowerPoint Presentations

I get 'pps' files emailed to me periodically. They would diligently execute with OpenOffice when clicked from the received email link. I recently re-installed Mint 9 to a new hard drive. Everything seems to be updated correctly. Now when I click on a pps link, i get this message: http://i.imgur.com/...

Re: Disk Check...Check ...still Checking [SOLVED]

I found that problem occurs on my systems if the disk check tries to complete under any newer kernel image. So when it gets stuck on the check, I restart the PC and select the original kernel image from GRUB. The scan completes without problem. Then on reboot the lockups are gone whichever kernel i...

Re: CPU's too active lately

I think I found the cause ... addon Flashgot after last update. When it would spike, processes would show Firefox - I think processes never show the addon directly tho. Bottom line - I removed Flashgot and system finally quieted down :/ Will wait a couple of days before adding [SOLVED] to title to m...

Disk Check...Check ...still Checking

Search just led me to some unresolved answers. Check is every so boots and it just hangs there eternally.

Re: CPU's too active lately

Don't see a hardware accelleration choice in this FF version... think it has something to do with the last firefox 3.66.22 update thru mint update.

Re: CPU's too active lately

no need to install 'htop' ...just typing 'top' in the terminal shows all processes - firefox-bin and xorg and python are usually the first 3.

CPU's too active lately

Been using Isadora 9 for over a year now. It is my primary OS. Recently I noticed that I'm getting very high cpu spikes especially when on Firefox. I believe the last couple of updates were for 'cups' and before that was something for 'Firefox' ... don't know if this is related. I will exit Firefox ...

Re: about audacity

I guess you can use all the above methods to get results. But... I record streaming sound from the internet from all sources and don't rely on any added features. Just plain Audacity is needed. This is how it works for me: Make sure 'Output Level Meter' is turned 'On' @ the drop down menu (see arrow...

Epson R200

swapped out the HP for the old Epson again ... have escputil and gutenprint installed from before but can't find the printer. Don't remember how I installed it before or what the drivers were called. Hoping someone can steer me in the right direction.
