Re: new - could not refresh the list of packages

Try by changing the mirror. Open UpdateManager (I guess it is called MintUpdate), then Edit > Software Sources > Download from: > other > select best server . By doing that it will chose the best one for you, however it may be that it will chose the one you are already using. In this case select one...

Re: How to get more choices for SCREEN RESOLUTIONS settings

It is probably a GTK problem or a gedit one. I do not know, actually, you probably can ignore it at the moment. Simply make the change and click the "floppy disk" in order to save the file, then close it and restart. Uhm here I made the changes in gedit, then Quit, Save, Yes I probably und...

Re: Mint 11, 64bit - often crashes

As I said yesterday it is quite hard to understand (for us) what exactly causes the crash. The strange thing is that this is at least the second thread in two days saying that the system crashes. So I suggest you the same thing, the next time your system crashes, login and open the terminal. Run the...

Re: How to get more choices for SCREEN RESOLUTIONS settings

It never happened to me, but this is how I would do it (just in case, but as I said I cannot grant anything) First scenario: Your monitor gets completely black. In this case your monitor probably could not afford such resolution, therefore the best thing to do is to set it back as it was. Your only ...

Re: Linux Mint Randomly Crashes to Log-In Screen

In these cases the trouble is understanding what causes the crash. What you can do in order to let us know what happens is doing the following: the next time the computer crashes, login once again and open your terminal. Then post the output of:

Code: Select all

Re: It says im logged in and won't let me log in

Uhm, what do you mean by saying: I installed mint inside linux if that helps. Can you please explain once again what is your problem? I did not understand what you are trying to do: you would like to login directly into your account and hence avoid the login screen? If yes, are you using Mint 11 or ...

You may try by changing it manually sudo gedit ~/.config/xfce4/xfconf/xfce-perchannel-xml/displays.xml Where it says: <property name="Resolution" type="string" value="1024x768"/> and <property name="RefreshRate" type="double" value="60.003840&qu...

@ exaeresis I've enabled all 5 levels because Clem recommended that method for Mint Update. http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=141&t=67502&start=120#p400523 ok. In any case by updating from terminal the levels are not considered (at least they said that on IRC). Therefore as long a...

Re: alt + f2 not working

Did you check if Alt+f2 is actually bound to the command you are looking for? I do not have Mint 11 however there should be a Keyboard Shortcuts option under Preferences menu. It may be that you inadvertently removed it. In the list of possible actions there should be the one you are looking for, wh...

I guess I'm held hostage by the gods of LMDE today.... I tried to reinstall LMDE 32 bit (from the 2011 re-spin). That went fine. Then I tried (in vain) to install the updates ---- all 1,119 of them. Enabled all 5 levels. Error. Broken packages. Went to synaptic. Could not find any broken packages t...

Re: DOes Mint have screens of death?

Dude, you are getting it wrong. There are system requirements for Mint 11: System requirements: x86 processor (Linux Mint 64-bit requires a 64-bit processor. Linux Mint 32-bit works on both 32-bit and 64-bit processors). 512 MB RAM (1GB recommended for a comfortable usage). 5 GB of disk space Graphi...

Re: DOes Mint have screens of death?

You have to understand that Kernel Panics are not the first sign of an upcoming computer insurrection. They may happen, clearly, (Kernel panics, not computer insurrections) but most of the times they happen because you do something you should not. So instead of asking " how often does it happen...

Re: DOes Mint have screens of death?

I guess you are talking about Kernel Panic, which is somehow similar to the Windows' Blue Screen of Death. The fact is, people should be happy that it does not happen, not the opposite.

Re: Sound and battery icon in statusbar

You mean panel bar?
If so right click in a empty spot of the bar, press add to panel. Click the one you need and then click add.
For the sound the item you need is called volume control.

Re: [chromium] How to get rid of custom search?

Right click in the URL bar, press edit search engines then simply add/remove/change the one you want to use.
As you said this gives Mint project what it needs to survive, however they won't force you use something you don't want.

Hello everybody. I've installed LMDE "long" ago and as you may imagine I'm still using it. However I never decided to register at the forum, but why not? The reasons are obvious, they are many. Uhm, probably not, actually, I don't know why. Nevertheless I just did it, it's a pleasure meeti...
