Re: Fresh Install of Mint 17 - No MKV audio decoder?

Yes, plays correctly in VLC
I know its a container format. Specifically it seems to be the aac codec.
Installed restricted extras . . . didn't fix it. Didn't add ttf either.

Still researching

[SOLVED] Fresh Install of Mint 17 - No MKV audio decoder?

Hi all, I've been using Linux Mint since Mint 14 and I've always been able to load MKV files into avidemux without trouble. I just got a new laptop, slapped Mint 17 onto it and now I cannot open MKV without the error: "No audio decoder found for this file Save (A+V) will generate bad AVI. Save ...

XplanetFX suddenly renders Hoth?

Good afternoon all, I use xplanetFX to render my desktop background and this morning I noticed that it suddenly was rendering a snow planet rather than our lovely home planet. I'm wondering if anyone has any ideas as to why this is happening. It's not the cloud layer as I tried disabling the clouds ...

Re: Why are my applications not the latest possible version?

I've been a Linux Mint user now for a couple of years, coming from Ubuntu when Unity started to rear its head. I must say, Linux Mint seems to have the best solution yet. It has given us multiple Desktop Environments to choose from and leaves us with the Ubuntu repositories as a backbone. Plus they ...

Re: XPLANETFX not working?

I noticed that Mate is not recognized as a Desktop Environment in XplanetFX. You can have it save to a file, but it won't update.

Does anyone know:
1. Does Mate support this sort of wallpaper updating?
2. How can we get XPlanetFX to recognize Mate?

Thanks!

Re: No Title Bars in fresh Mate 13 install

Well, a quick traipse through the directory tree and I found things I thought I could delete. A reboot later and everything is as it should be. Just adding apps back in but their configs remain.

No Title Bars in fresh Mate 13 install

Hi all,
Just installed mint 13 Mate over an existing mint 11 install. The system drive was formated but not the home partition. I now have no window title bars. I have searched and tried different tweaks and tweak programs to no effect. Ideas?

Dist-Upgrade to Maya still shows Lisa as Distribution?

Hi all,

I just completed a dist-upgrade to Mint 13 (Maya) and I think I've pretty much gotten my issues ironed out, but I noticed that the system is still reporting its distribution as Mint 12 (Lisa). How do I fix that?

Thanks for that. I wouldn't have guessed to use the DASH for the main menu favorites. I kept trying to right-click in the regular menu.
