Re: Amule

I have my router firewall turned off and the firewall in mint disabled and am still getting low id. What else could it be? Emule works in windows. I have used amule in mint in other versions of mint without issue. I am running 64 bit mint right now.

What is "Shiki-Wise"

I saw this on the Mint 7 Gloria article. What is Shiki-Wise supposed to be. I have found several references in Google regarding shiki colors, but am not sure what it is.

Re: How do I get latest updates for Gnome and other apps?

In gnome the development has progressed further so there is no need for the PPA repositories (these are really repos for beta or even alpha) Some apps in Gloria will be backported to previous versions Unless you have problems there is no need to upgrade - consider my signature I appreciate that. So...

Re: Google Search Bar question

the experimental xpi changes the resulting page that comes up - it does nothing to the search bar It is not working properly though. Normally after I search a subject, I can click "images" and it will pull up relevant images, then I can click News and it gives news about that same search term. With...

Re: Google Search Bar question

I currently have no gooogle search bar. Will this put an enhanced version even if there is not a functioning google xml, or do I need to restore the original mint search bar first (if so how)? Thanks all.

Google search engine

Is there any way to make the customized Google search engine work like the default. If that is not possible, any idea how to change it back to the Firefox default. I wouldn't mind the branded version that Mint comes with except that it doesn't do any of the cool things that the normal search bar doe...

I am receiving "Low ID" from the servers. looked up the Amule wiki and it suggested, I might be behind a firewall. Does KDE have a built in...

Re: Linux Mint 6 KDE released!

I did it and it didn't show the upgrade package. I used Synaptic to install the mint-meta-kde package, and then went back to Mint Update and tried again, but it still didn't list any distribution upgrade package or any package. It just said I was up to date. I am sure I haven't done this upgrade al...

Re: KDE Menu won't go away some times

I thought that was the normal action. not as annoying as the plugged in devices pane. Boo It's actually staying open until you click again on the start button or launch something. Clicking the desk top does nothing. I would think it would go away if I click on another window. It also stays on top a...

Re: Linux Mint 6 KDE RC1 Bug Thread

Amarok doesn't crossfade between songs, but fades song out when song is stoped. Can this be confirmed? To me, the new Amarok is a mess period. Dynamic Playlist does not work at all like it should. You can no longer set a criteria and have it separate that into a playlist. Correct me if I am wrong, ...

What boo said...enable the PPA repos. They are already there, you just need to enable them. When the updates are finished, you will have a bunch of new Plasmoids...but not YAWP.

Also, we used to have the option to md5 from the menu if I remember. Another feature I liked was the "launch terminal here" feature where y...
