Re: Does Megatokyo.com work?

Any idea if there is a way to check if the ISP is blocking access?

Does Megatokyo.com work?

Could someone check to see if they can log into Megatokyo.com, and verify the website is working? I have followed that webcomic for years (it has been one of the most popular), and in the last few months I cannot log into the website from my computer, laptop, or phone. Looking at facebook or twitter...

Gimp 2.8 for the repositories?

How long do you think it will likely be till Gimp 2.8 shows up in the repositories? Is it likely they will skip Maya repositories for the next version?

Re: GIMP 2.8

I am surprised that Gimp 2.8 didn't make the repositories this time as well. I wonder how long till they show up? Would they seriously wait till the next release in 6 months?

Re: Multiple Users didn't showup (migrate) on Lisa to MAYA m

UPDATE: Ok, I went and deleted all the other profile folders in my Home folder except my main profile. I then went and created all the other users with the exact same names as previous, gave them the same passwords, and activated them. After that I opened the Backup Tool, and restored all my data ag...

Multiple Users didn't showup (migrate) on Lisa to MAYA move.

I have upgraded from Linux Mint 12 Lisa to Mint 13 Maya with Cinnamon, including doing Data backup. On Lisa I had multiple users, but they are not showing up as users on the new system. They do not show up despite all the user profile data and folders being in the right location in the home folder. ...

Re: Poll: Desktop environments

My vote is for Cinnamon . But look. I don't really care a whole lot. Just pick one and stick with it. This fracturing of the desktops sucks. Last I used was Mint 10 and it worked pretty good. The only problem was drivers and what not started to fall behind the times, so I jumped to Mint 12. Mint 12 ...

How do you install Zotero in the current Mint (12)? Are there any .deb files anywhere around? Does it work pretty well?

Most Mint Friendly Video Drivers (Nvidia/ATI) dual monitors?

What is the most Linux Mint friendly video driver set for Dual Monitors?? Is it Nvidia, ATI/AMD/Radeon, or something else? It is time I got a new video card to play games (Star Trek Online), and use for video and whatnot. Does one group or company support Linux Mint better with drivers than the othe...

Anyone having any success getting Star Trek Online to work in Linux Mint 12??? If so could you describe what you used (Wine, Play On Linux, Winetricks, etc...), and how you got it all to work.

Re: GPT changes to MBR on Linux Mint 12 install <SOLVED>

srs5694, you may be right on how things work, but... Linux Mint should be not only clearer on how that works (I had to find out the hard and aggrivating way), but there should be a clearer option for newer users. Just giving (bringing up) the option in the automatic installer (maybe when a different...

Ok xenopeek, your question helped me figure out how to solve this. I was using the automatic installer completely. How I solved this, was I formatted the drive, and created a GPT partion table.

Re: Dual Monitor Nvida setup is missing menus in Mint 12

Devenrai, the only thing I notice that is odd is that there is a jump over a DFP-1 in the images you sent. DFP-0, then DFP-2, and DFP-3. Unfortunately, other than that, I do not know enough to solve your problem. Is it me, or since the fracturing of Linux Mint 11 (GUi/Window Managers) from the Ubunt...

It should be noted I am running two different types of monitors, a Dell 17" and a Samsung 23" widescreen. I also ...
