Re: Windows disc can't boot after installing LMDE 201303

Thank you for the answers, but the issue was solved by giving

Code: Select all

sudo grub-install /dev/sda
in the terminal (sda is the Windows hard disc) and making sure that in the BIOS the disc that boots is sda.

I don't think anything had to do with the UEFI, by the way. At least, not in this case.

Windows disc can't boot after installing LMDE 201303

Hi, everyone. After installing LMDE 201303 yesterday, and having seen that it all installed well, when I tried to boot into my Windows 8 hard drive via the Grub option, it seemed to be loading the OS, the Windows logo appeared for just 3 seconds, and then it took me back to the Grub options. I tried...

Re: Noisy FLAC Files

Have you tried playing these files using another player, e.g. Totem or Gnome Player? I think that your files play just as well there as they do on Windows. I've had the same problem using VLC when playing movies or music, as well. After a while (i.e. some seconds) it clears up. I think maybe there's...

Re: Mint 13 XFCE - sound is lost after reboot

Many thanks for the pointer, Gene. The sound works now (I rebooted a few times to check it out). It seems that the HDMI setting confuses things a bit there, indeed, so I turned that off and it's OK. I've had some similar problems while at Gnome (Cinnamon edition). No matter how often i deselected th...

[SOLVED] Mint 13 XFCE - sound is lost after reboot

Hi, everyone. Everything was OK, sound, video and all, until after I rebooted. There was no sound in the next session. I tinkered a bit with the options in Sound and I got sound in the end, but that was until the next boot. Again, no sound. It's a bit frustrating, I must admit. These are the options...

Re: Linux Mint 13 "Maya" released!

Great work, everyone.
Another polished release, this time with the long-awaited Cinnamon desktop,
which I must admit has blended in really superbly with all the other usual stuff.

Our thanks from the Linux Mint Greek Community.

[SOLVED] Where's "Open as root"?

Hello, everyone. While trying to install some Cinnamon themes, I found out that the right click function of "Open as root" that we had once, is no longer there. I read in another thread that the nautilus-gksu package is responsible for that, and that it is installed by default in Mint 12, which is t...

Can't install Cinnamon in Gnome 3.4

Hi, everyone. Just upgraded to Gnome 3.4. Is there a way to install Cinnamon? I keep getting error reports about muffin, etc. Tried fixing broken packages, even manually installing some of them, but nothing. Is there a way, or should I wait for Mint 13? This is what I get when I try to install it th...

Yeah, but won't he have to adjust some things in fstab, then?
I've read that one needs to do that, so I didn't bother deleting my Swap unused space.

Re: Online Accounts in Gnome 3.2 doesn't display Google acco

Yeah, I know.
I think it needs a bit looking into, as a feature.
Does it by any chance require Evolution to be present?

Online Accounts in Gnome 3.2 doesn't display Google account

Hi, everyone.

Installed Lisa on my PC and everything seems to be running well apart from the Google Online Account which is at the top right-hand corner of the menu in Gnome 3.2.
I typed in my data correctly, but there seems to be no access whatsoever.
Any idea what's going on?

Many thanks.

Re: Plymouth theme for LMDE - V2 8/21/11

Just followed the process, LifeInTheGrey, but got the Fedora bar. Instead, on the right there is "Debian Wheezy/Sid", not the lmde theme that I installed through the terminal.
Any ideas?
