Re: Unable to install Mint 8 'Helena'

I dont believe I have a hardware isse. Def sounds like a compatibility issue Mint is on partition /dev/sda1. Not sure that sounds right, thought on an IDE it should be h da!! It seems daft to me to issue software like this Unfortunately decision was made upstream by Ubuntu devs. I agree in a way, b...

Re: How to make Mint persistent on USB

Hi Almeida, congrats on your first post. Doubt if anyone knows the answer on this, sounds like it could be a problem with the new grub2. I'm only guessing about this, but if you want to follow it up there's a little more info at http://linuxmint.com/wiki/index.php/Grub_2 . Good luck, anything you fi...

Re: Unable to install Mint 8 'Helena'

wezzer, have you tried re-installing Mint 7 again then immediately doing an upgrade? This might be your best bet given no other options. The problem sounds like it has to do with grub2 but as it is still in beta, not many options there. How is the drive connected, is it SATA or IDE and on what inter...

Re: Home content shows on Desktop

demoka, you should have a file user-dirs.dirs in the hidden .config folder in your home folder, press CTRL+H to see hidden files. In that file there should be a line that says XDG_DESKTOP_DIR="$HOME/Desktop", if yours says just "$HOME", change it to include the /Desktop.

Re: Wired network setup with xp

You should at least see the workgroup after double clicking the Windows Network icon, do you not even get that? Oh hang on, forgot something, sorry. In a terminal window type sudo smbpasswd -a yourlinuxusername , enter your password, then when prompted, enter the password for your xp shares or add -...

Re: Grub prevents Windows 7 from suspend

Just a shot in the dark, but do you have the boot flag enabled on both drives? Why is W7 controlling the MBR on the 2nd drive, did you set this up separately with that drive as the boot device then swap the drives around? Guessing here, but just sounds a bit weird the way it's setup.

If this doesn't help can you be a bit more specific about what you are tr...

Re: Ubuntu Tweak not working in Helena

Anyone else have this problem? It works except for the applications part, which is really why anyone adds Tweak in the first place Andy, GIYF on this. Basically the version of tweak in the repos hasn't yet been updated for Helena, but should be anytime now. You have 3 options, either wait till it i...

Re: Wired network setup with xp

Hi naggis, sorry to hear you are having issues with this, I'm no expert but will do my best. Current version of Gnome (and Mint) sadly seem to lack a gui way to configure filesharing properly, so you have to do it manually. As you've already installed samba, you can go straight to editing the config...

Though I sit only 2 feet from the router, with LM7 I had some problems getting wireless on my laptop to connect reliably to my WPA2 network, and once connected the signal strength hovered around 1Mb/s and seemed to vary a lot. But these problems have disappeared with LM8. Connection is "usually" 1st...
