Re: How do you guys deal with Linux haters? O.o

Re: Which laptop Mini PCIE wireless card?

Sorry don't know enough about network cards to give you an educated answer. My fix is to swipe a Netgear [N+]dongle off one of the other computers in the house long enough to get the Broadcomm drivers to download. Renting so couldn't hard wire, so I just got dongles for everyone in the house.;) Room...

Re: How do you guys deal with Linux haters? O.o

Usually when they bring their computer to me to fix, instead if them hovering over me or getting between me and the computer while I'm trying to fix it. I hand them one of the NetBooks that have Xfce and let them play so I can finish. :-) One guy offered to buy one as well as me fixing his computer,...

What is this character?

Need it to input a PIN number and can't find it. Looks like a reversed upside down L . Never had to use it before and can't find it on my character map.

Re: Microsoft is Doomed

I was trying to upgrade from Win3.11 to Linux years ago and couldn't figure it out at that time. Held out until the IP stopped supporting Win3.11 and at that time MS was pushing WinME, :mrgreen: As soon at I could I upgraded it to WinXP. Now using Win7 when I can't use Linux Mint. I don't know about...

Re: install from torrent file and other torrent question

Burn the ISO to DVD, boot to the DVD if everything works hit install. If your BIOs isn't set to boot from DVD you might have to go in and change it.

Re: How To Uninstall McAfee Antivirus

As far as the video, I didn't comment much on it because it was the truth. :? I usually threaten a computer at least once a week about ripping it out by the wires, tying it to the trailer hitch of my truck, and dragging it around town a while. :) So shooting one would be right up there, but it's too...

Re: How To Uninstall McAfee Antivirus

IMHO, Most of the premium AV software on the market is worst than the viruses they are suppose to be protecting you from. On a Windows PC, if I'm install it, that is one of the first things I do once I get to the desktop. [Never activate it even for a "free" trial, uninstall all traces]The...

Re: LCD overheats, black corner, only when in Mint 15

Have you tried

Code: Select all

sudo nano /etc/default/grub

Code: Select all

GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="acpi=off quiet splash"
in your Grub command line, Linux doesn't seem to play well with acpi in some systems.

After you make your changes to the line and save it don't forget

Code: Select all

sudo update-grub
