Re: Slowdown

Some more tips: 1. You can run command "top" in the terminal, and look for applications that take the most memory and see if you can install lightweight alternatives for those. 2. You can run command "initctl | grep running" in the terminal, and look for services you don't need to run and switch tho...

Re: Linux mint 11 'Mouse buffer'

Mouse buffer only works as long as the original text is still selected. Once you select some other text or remove the selection, it is gone. It should not be the case that if you select some text AAA, press CTRL+C to copy it, then select some other text BBB, and press middle-button somewhere else it...

For the first, check out this page with commands to start internet connection if you are running without X: http://wirelessdefence.org/Contents/Lin ... Connecting

Re: Linux mint 11 'Mouse buffer'

Hi, the mouse buffer is automatic. You select some text with the mouse, and *bam*, it is in the mouse buffer! To paste it from the mouse buffer you have to middle-click your mouse (click the scrollwheel if you do not have 3 buttons). If you don't have three buttons, or a scrollwheel doesn't click, p...

Re: Move items in Start Menu

If you have a Control Center in LM 10, open that, else open Preferences. Then open Main Menu. Here you can edit the Main Menu. You can drag LibreOffice draw to another category there.

There is also a front-end to NTP you can use to configure it. sudo apt-get install gnome-time-admin Then in Linux Mint 11 go to Menu -> Control Center -> Time and Date, unlock, and change Configuration to "Keep synchronized with Internet servers." You can add servers local to your country, look them...

Re: wxWidgets ./configure error with Amule

Check to see if you have that installed:

Code: Select all

$ dpkg -l | grep libupnp
ii  libupnp3                              1:1.6.6-5
You can see I have version 1.6.6-5 installed.

Re: wxWidgets ./configure error with Amule

It is looking for the application wx-config, and can not find it. Either you have it installed, but ./configure is looking in the wrong spot, or you do not have it installed. Type "which wx-config" in the terminal to see if it is installed: $ which wx-config On my system that gives an empty response...

Re: XChat not saving sound settings

You could try XChat on another Linux version, or on Windows, and see if the file is changed there (for example of contents). For more help, I'd suggest the XChat forums: http://forum.xchat.org/viewforum.php?f=3.

Re: need help with partitions

I don't think this can be currently done with GParted without loss of data. You will have to pick out one partition, move its data elsewhere, convert it to an extended partition, and then create logical partitions in it for use by Linux. With GParted you can resize partitions, so you could perhaps m...

Oops, I thought you got those errors during boot. This does indeed look like broken package. You can try to open the Package Manager (Synaptic) and from the Edit menu select "Fix Broken Packages".
