Re: nothing happens when clicking on "Bluetooth"

I have set up a partition with 32bit Mint 13 for a couple of programs that will not work under 64bit Mint 11
The Bluetooth works fine under Mint 11 but not Mint 13 on the same machine.

Re: Exe's and other file typs

You need to have the right program installed to open the file type you have.

Use the Software manage to install a suitable program.

Note that a ,exe file is a Windows executable file and not suitable for Linux.
