Re: Problem with titlebar in Linux Mint 11

Following those steps should keep the setting in Compiz correct. If it reverts, the obvious first questions is are you running Linux Mint 11 from a harddisk or from some removable device (CD/DVD/USB stick)? If you are running from a harddisk, do you login with the account that has admin privileges (...

Re: Shortcut for a specific folder?

Right-click the icon of the folder you want a shortcut for, then select "Make Link" from the popup menu to create a shortcut. You can rename, move and copy the shortcut as you like.

Re: LMDE 201109 and Skype web cam (video)

Have you installed the 64 bits version of LMDE, or the 32 bits version?

If you have installed the 64 bits version, please install the package ia32-libs and see if this resolves the problem.

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install ia32-libs
If you have installed the 32 bits version, something wonky is going on :D

I don't know about the web cam, but the warnings you get you may ignore. This is just gedit telling you that it can not add the file you are about to edit to the recently used files list for the root user (as you are running gedit as root with gksudo). The root user doesn't have a .local/share folde...

Re: KMyMoney 4.6

The most recent version of KMyMoney on both Ubuntu and Debian (natty/oneiric and unstable repository respectively) is 4.5.3-2. So I think you misread this; 4.6 is not yet available on Ubuntu (or Debian). You could download the sources for 4.6 from SourceForge, and compile from source: http://sourcef...

Re: Where can I find Wine 64 bit??

Installing software with Wine, installs it in a hidden folder (.wine/drive_c) in your home directory. You can also browse this from the Wine menu. So Wine doesn't actually install to your Windows C: drive, it has a virtual C: drive in your home directory.

Re: Make a commerical for linux mint.

Already Linux Mint is very prominent; any reviews where they compare a few distros these days, Linux Mint is one of the distros compared... So at least amongst the Linux-curious crowd Linux Mint gets a healthy dose of positive exposure. (At least this goes for my country; Linux Format is available h...

Re: Possibly naive question about Security/Multimedia respin

Yeah, installing new software is okay. This is about the installing of updates from the update manager (use the Update Pack Info button there to check if update pack 3 is available, and until then don't install updates).

Weird, I can confirm SILC not being available on LMDE 201109 but available on LM11 Pidgin. On LM11 and LMDE 201109 the same SILC libraries versions are installed, but different Pidgin versions. Pidgin 2.9 is installed on LMDE, but Pidgin 2.7 on LM11... Also compared the /etc/purple/prefs.xml file, b...

From the WineHQ AppDB listing I'd assume Nokia PC Suite will install out of the box on Wine, but I'm not sure it will fully function (outdated ratings on compatibility rate it "Garbage", meaning completely unusable).

Re: LMDE - LVM install

Linux Mint 8 was based on Ubuntu, which is quite different from the Debian based LMDE. For Debian 6, a introduction and guide to setup LVM is here: http://www.linuxbsdos.com/2011/02/16/ma ... -debian-6/.

I'm not sure how relevant this is to LMDE, but worth a read.

Re: Domain Blocking

One "dirty" solution is to edit your /etc/hosts file, I've used this for testing purposes but is useable for day-to-day also. To edit, from terminal or Alt+F2 run: gksudo gedit /etc/hosts Now add a line for each domain you want to block. For example, to block gmail and facebook: 127.0.0.1 gmail.com ...
