Re: How to install thinkorswim .sh file?

Try doubleclicking it.

If nothing happens right click and look under properties. Set it to run as executable.

Hope that helps.

Re: Rosewill RNX-MiniN1 & Mint 12

Update-

Does not seem to work with either version of Lisa.

Does work on 32 bit versions of Katya and Isadora though. Uses net8192se.inf driver on NDISwrapper.

Re: Linux Mint 12 "Lisa" released!

Downloaded Lisa on to my Vbox. Mate is very 11 like. One thing I noticed though. When installed, the Update Manager will not load on startup. I have to manually open it as superuser. Is this a problem anyone else is experiencing? If so how can this be rectified? So far I'm impressed with Lisa. Thank...

[Solved] Money Manager software?

I've been searching for a linux version of quicken. So far the two most promising seem to be gnucash (although I find it bloated and slow) and Money Manager EX (lighter but unknown and I don't know if I should trust it). Any and all advice is welcome.

That's pretty good resolution for an old pc.

Is mint the only OS on that system or do you dual boot with windows?

Re: Running Linux Mint 11 on Windows 7 Host from VB

IMHO you will be better served keeping a dual boot setup. Here's why. When you run win 7 as a guest OS inside mint, both OS's are taking resources.

Re: Netflix in Linux Firefox?

To the best of my knowledge there is no way to run Netflix on Linux other than through a windows virtual machine.

If I am mistaken, someone please correct me. I've done a bit of research and have come up with nothing.
