Re: MDM Login Screen slideshow gone?

I just installed the serena backgrounds. I'll see if that makes the login screen have a background on the next reboot. I suspect not.

Tried installing PSpice through wine and it wouldn't function so I uninstalled it but it has laid claim to all my qucs dat files. How can I remove the identification of these files as PSpice files?

You should get a successful connection, without a flashing pair light on the mouse, but no usability as a mouse. Now use the bluetooth tray ...

Re: Mint 18 Mate Kdenlive tooltips blank

OK, I've figured out the problem. Its a theme issue. The text and the background are both the same color on the tool tips. Not sure how to change it yet but it isn't an installation issue.

Thanks

gspiceUI (geda) never finishes simulation

Hi all,
I'm wondering if anyone has had the problem where a circuit simulation in gspiceUI never returns anything but running the gspiceUI command directly yields a result.

I'd like to solve the problem but I'm wondering if the problem is my directory structure.
