Issue with video playing...

Hi,everyone. About a month ago,I had to change my NVidia graphics card,due to the fact that the previous one (an 8500 GT ) probably got burnt out. I have a 240 GT now. When I installed the hardware,I didn't think I had to install the drivers all over again,so I left it as it was (185 driver installe...

Re: Total Record

If I understood the question correctly,then Audacity is what you need.
You can record from a variety of sources,including Internet streams.The output can surely be ranging from .mp3 to .wav or .flac,provided you have the necessary codecs installed.
The application is in the Software Manager.

Re: Update to Grub 2-->Will it include the Windows option?

Here's what happened: 1)I have two Windows partitions,not because I wanted to,but because the Seven installer made them when I installed Windows. I added the UUID number of the biggest partition,but that didn't seem to be the one MGR was installed on,so I changed the UUID number to the one of the ot...

After restarting the system,I got a prompt telling me to give a command if everything works fine with the new Grub: When you have verified GRUB 2 works, you can use this command to complete the upgrade: upgrade-...

Does Mint Uploader work?

Hi,everyone.
Just upgraded to Helena from Gloria and I'm wondering why Mint Upload doesn't work.
I right-click on an .mp3 file and click Upload,but nothing happens.
It didn't use to work during the past few months in Gloria,either.Are there any settings I need to adjust?
Any ideas?
Many thanks.

Re: Video playback issue after upgrade to Mint 8...

I followed the first post to try it out,and indeed,the hue was off.I reset it to defaults in the Display tab,and it's OK with the 185 driver.

Thanks for the answers,guys.

Thanks,merlwiz79.
Already done that,as mentioned above.
Including the Front control in Mixer did the trick,to a certain extent.

Re: Music sounds a bit low...

Thanks for the answer,rich_roast. I've included Front in the selected controls in Mix,and it seems to have improved a bit,since the Front slider could be moved a bit more upwards. As for what you suggested,there is no Pulse Audio...Using XFCE,there is only the Multimedia category,where only Mix can ...

Hi,everyone. I've been using Mint for quite some time now. Taking a look at the Gloria XFCE edition,I find that an excellent job has been done,as always.
