Re: Kobo Arc Android tablet not seen

H'm, Amarok can see the Kobo Arc now, maybe that's progress, though when I asked it to copy one album to the Arc it dumped two of the twelve tracks there on their own with no folder and then stopped the transfer. There are too many assumptions on some how-to pages though, for instance when on an Arc...

Re: Kobo Arc Android tablet not seen

If I get nowhere I can at least use this advice to move new Cd rips with this method: "I found that I could transfer files into folders DCIM and PICTURES in the PTP mode. So I zipped my files transferred them to DCIM folder. Later using filemanger (I used Androidzip since they were zip files) unzipp...

Re: Kobo Arc Android tablet not seen

Thanks, that wasn't installed but it hasn't helped. I find that my Sansa Clip mp3 player is seen though. I think it's one of those .rules things somehow, it's kind of like when a dongle is seen as a cd drive and not a usb modem. But I've got a brain fog and casn't think what to do next. All ideas we...

Kobo Arc Android tablet not seen

If I type lsusb in the terminal I get Bus 001 Device 007: ID 2237:d108 Kobo Inc. at the bottom of the list. If I change the Arc's mode from MTP to camera Mint will be able ot use its pictures folders, but as MTP I'm not offered to open the Arc in the File Manager, no device is seen. I remember using...

Re: Firefox multiple tabs glitch [Solved]

Good, thanks - couple of entries in about:config that almost mean the same and end up contradictory, to my mind.

Re: Could someone in the UK test this for me please?

I get the turning arrow/disc thing that you'd get if something may be about to start, but that justs hangs there turning. The shows that are archived on that site do play after the briefest pause as normal. Also, the problem wasn't present using Solus OS as live usb just now (newest version seemingl...

Could someone in the UK test this for me please?

Flashplayer is working on YouTube, Vimeo, and BBC iPlayer. Nothing new will play on 4od though, when using Linux Mint (14, KDE, 64 bit and 32 bit Cinnamon 14), though archived programs seem fine. These two don't: http://www.channel4.com/programmes/4od/collections/70-the-drugs-dont-work http://www.ch...

Firefox multiple tabs glitch [Solved]

I remember this issue from a while back but it is happening in Mint 14 KDE 64 bit, though I've checked and toggled the relevant places in Firefox itself (including in about:config). I vaguely remember a KDE system setting I think that also deals with this but can't remember where it is and maybe it'...

2 KDE questions

I'm hoping to stick with Linux Mint 14 64 bits KDE edition after four years of Windows and Linux seesawing as this Mint does now seem pretty well polished, but I've had one issue today and another question to put here. I use Redshift to correct the brownish greys of my Hanns G monitor, and with Cinn...

Cinnamon downgrade fails [Solved]

I used the Romeo repository to install Cinnamon 1.6 but 1.4 still seems preferable glitch-wise, to me. I'll wait until a natural update of Cinnamon. I was shrewd enough to set Gnome classic as the default desktop then before removing the Romeo repository, purging cinnamon and reinstalling. Only now ...

I've just gone back to Chromium and it's fine with Flashplayer - got the idly sitting on the panel issue back though... Maybe Chromium has an update soon.

Chrome and Flashplayer glitch

I'd been using Chromium as my browser but on a whim installed Chrome, removing Chromium and all its config and cache files first. Chrome is playing videos oddly - they play fast for a second, then freeze for a few seconds, then fast again. Is there a procedure someone here's well-rehearsed in that I...

Re: Mobile Broadband and Cinnamon/Gnome 3

The image compression issue I've worked out. Hopefully there'll be no side effects like a drastic raise in data use.

Mobile Broadband and Cinnamon/Gnome 3

I mostly use mobile broadband, currently with Vodafone. The dongle modem (K3805-Z) works, after a minor scripting procedure I googled a year ago, but the Network Manager applet seems to act oddly in either Cinnamon or possibly in Gnome 3 if that's where the applet is derived from. If I want to disco...

I don't think I've ever properly understood Hibernation and Suspend or Sleep functions in general, whether in Windows or Linux. Could someone here summarise things in relation to Mint (13, Cinnamon, 64 bit)? I was sure that up till a few days ago the computer would go into a sleep mode, or whatever ...

AMD graphics color temp question [Solved]

For quite a while I settled for the open source driver for my graphics card, the default. I've installed the proprietary one now and it has helped get rid of a brownish look to greys, but it is slower - windows open jerkily and menus briefly flash black when opened. This is a 3ghz dual core machine ...
