Re: Noob Question

Ah. You can just go into Software Manager (directly in the menu), type Skype to search, and click to install it. You will find that most software can directly be installed from the Software Manager, and you don't need to go to any website and try to figure out the correct file to download. Just open...

Re: Microsoft contributes a lot of changes to Linux kernel 3

As a Linux Mint desktop user what do Microsoft's changes do for me? As I read the article, all these changes were bugfixes to Microsoft's HyperV virtualisation interface driver, which has suffered from bugs for past 2 years. Good that that they are fixing some of those bugs. But this is only of inte...

Re: External Monitor resolution not recognised

There is two ways to go about this, one is to run your script automatically on startup. The other is indeed to write a xorg.conf. Failing the one, you can use the other :D To automatically run the script at startup, go to the terminal and do the following. mkdir ~/Scripts gedit ~/Scripts/fix-resolut...

Re: CD/DVD

No you can't just copy the DVD to the USB stick, that won't work. Use Software Manager to install unetbootin. That application does all the work for you to install an ISO image onto a USB stick and make it bootable. I'm not sure if you can copy from DVD to USB stick, but have a look.

Re: Clock shifted by timezone value

Instead of having Linux use local time, you can also switch Windows to use UTC: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuTime#Make%20Windows%20use%20UTC And I suggest you install NTP to keep Linux time synchronized with internet servers. There is a front-end to NTP you can use to configure it: sudo a...

Re: Why my folder /var/log is too big?

You can delete them, but perhaps you should investigate what is wrong here? Especially the .err logging--what errors is it giving that need your attention?

By default (at least on Katya) logrotation is active and your logfiles should not get this big.

Re: Trying to list folders by data size not amount of items

Open the terminal and go to the folder where you have all the sub folders you wish to count. (Or browse to that folder, right-click and choose "Open in Terminal".) Once there, run the following command: du -ck * | grep -v \/ | head -n-1 | sort -n This gives you the sorted list of folders, each prece...

Re: Organising the window list on the taskbar

Welcome to Linux Mint! And, uh, yeah... Just drag (click & hold) a window icon and drop (release) it on another window icon to have it insert there on the windows list. :D

BTW this is the same way you rearrange your favorite applications in the mintMenu.

Re: start menu font size

Weird, I can't find this. Text size is indeed not influenced by Appearance settings, or by icon size. BTW perhaps get some search results looking for mintMenu instead of start menu (latter is Windows).

Re: You aren't going to believe this...why my server problem

http://12.207.42.203:81 still gives a timeout. And the other two links give "server can not be found" error directly. I don't know what you are doing, but perhaps get some help. Are you missing some essential steps in the configuration :( I'm sorry I can not help on this.
