Re: Windows 8 and mint 15

srs5694 thanks for your reply I was going to try the 64 bit version which according to this https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UEFI should cope with the issue. To go your route I for one am going to need a bit more guidance.

Re: SOLVED Flash gives a white/black screen on youtube

Sort of. I depreciated to mint-flashplugin 10.3 which works fine. Still something funny about this though. Is flash that hardware dependent?

Re: evolution mail problem

I suppose this the above question is solved since we gave up and restored from our backup. Which worked except evolution kept asking us for the server login password and keyring password. The keyring I seem to have solved by sudo sed -i 's/gnome_keyring/mate_keyring/g' /etc/pam.d/* (although I have ...
