It should be enabled by default but, do you think it being disabled in OSX when I sh...

Re: Dell D630-mice and windows keys

Can someone help with configuring the Windows keys (e.g. left Win key mapped to open menu) and opening up the trackpad on my Dell D630? The trackpad tracks only an inch or two for each swipe and if I'm too enthusiastic, I frequently accidentally catch the right edge causing the virtual desktops to ...

Thanks for your help, though!
Actually do not try to upgrade dmraid, I just killed my system :(

Edit: I fixed my system by downgrading back to 1.0.0.rc14 using the live CD.

Re: SimpleTech external hard drive issue

All you have to do is plug it in to a Windows machine, "safely disconnect" it. Turn it off and the on. Plug it in to your Mint and it should work.

Inside of Mint: grub> find /boot/grub/stage1 Error 15: File not found But, when I did run the command from installation it showed (hd0,0) Well that part seems to be OK.

Yes, Network Manager is fine now. With Elyssa I had the bug that someone mentioned earlier - I couldn't see my network until I scanned a few times.

Re: Linux Mint 6 x64 RC1 Bug Thread

Just tried it and the Flash bug still exists. I still get a blank area where the Flash video is supposed to be. liveleak.com can be used as an example, you have to tab a few videos and play around with them to get this error.
