Re: Clear Recent History

not a solution but a work-around: delete file '.recently-used.xbel' located in the Home folder (ctrl-H to view) and create a folder called '.recently-used.xbel' Totem will not add a recent files list now as probably other applications won't either. If you want the recent files feature restored again...

Complete removal using Synaptic

I've noticed that the 'complete removal' feature doesn't remove folders for that application that are still listed in the Home folders. Are these folders with the old installations safe to remove ? ... would other file sections also contain files for these ? add: i tried 'deborphan' filter and clean...

Re: USB Ports in VirtualBox for Mint 9

I've done this same routine before and it's not working for me.
Just tried it again ... can configure usb manually thru vb but is asking for vendor name, ID, port, serial number ??? - xp loads up beautifully, but has no door to the outside world - would be great to get usb and printer connected.

Audacity Issue record what u hear [Solved]

I had been using audacity to 'record what I hear' for a long time with anaother distro. By clicking on the record button it would automatically record any sound being played on the system.
