Re: improve the performance on a netbook

If those do not help, then consider installing one
of the lighter mint varieties, such as, xfce or lxde.

Re: ROOT

try su
all commands in linux are case sensitive

for sux, as well as su, run it in a terminal,
$ sux
enter your root password

Re: LMDE in netbooks

@ukbrian, Thanks for the comment on the Gnome menu. Hadn't realized there was a choice. I have Lmde, inadvertently on my AA1 model AOA150. I was running Peppermint on sda2 which was working fine. Installed Lmde on sda5, with lmde's grub, to try out but then Peppermint would no longer boot. I'm trave...

Re: Download YouTube Videos

Hi,

Part of the problem is that you must put the file in the same directory as where you execute the command,
or as root, put it somewhere on the path; such as, /usr/local/bin and then execute.

The second problem is that it doesn't seem to work anymore. Back to the drawing board.

Re: Removing xulrunner, caveats?

Just took a look in Synaptic:
xulrunner is 9375 kB, ca. 9.375 MB
but the *-dbg package is 65.8 MB

So, maybe just remove the debug package and still have Help?
Good luck.

Re: Ayuda urgente linux se ve todo negro

Bueno, si parece que puede ser la misma. A ver si la solución alli le sirve. Pero como dices, no habia completada la instalación? Si logras arrancar el LM9, corre en un terminal el xrandr si la resolución no es correcto: $ sudo xrandr -s 800x600 ó $ sudo xrandr -s 1024x768 ó la resolución deseada, a...

Re: Ayuda urgente linux se ve todo negro

Suena como puede ser que la bajada no esta del todo bien. Puede ser que el CD no se quemo correcto. Si puedes, sugiera que los baja el iso de nuevo, correr el md5 para verificarlo, y quemarlo de nuevo (usa la velocidad más lento posible para el Cd-R) Al menos todavia puedes connectar al internet.

Re: Ayuda urgente linux se ve todo negro

Hola L4ut1, No he intentado usar el instalador desde Windows, pero unas preguntas. Puede iniciar Windows? Si no, tiene el CD de Windows? Si lo tienes usarlo en modo Recuperar y reparar el Boot (inicio). Se que hay una opción para recuperar el MBR. Eso es lo que necesitas, primero. saludos, Richard.

Re: Revert to older thunderbird ?

I just bit the bullet and installed Kontact. Has the Organizer as well as Kmail. I think more complete than Lightning. Kmail was my favorite for several years until I changed to have a common app between Linux and Windows. A Pain. At any rate, Kmail imported my entire store (ca. 17000 mails) from Tb...

Re: HP Laserjet 1020 not printing

I have a similar problem from time to time. Not really sure why. When my HP1020 won't print in LM8, I turn it off for a few seconds, then back on; then start the Configure Printers app, then try to print again. Strangely enough, it usually starts printing. Sometimes I print a test page. Simpler than...
