Re: What Just happened? Mint 8

Try running testdisk to see if it can recover your lost partition.

It saved me from a major disaster once.

Re: HP1018 HPLIP foo2zj and Mint Helena

Just a bit of encouragement. Installed sidux94xfce w/grub2 on another partition. It installed a newer version of Cups than available from Helena repo. So maybe there is hope that it will work with Helena later. I no longer have Helena installed --only Gloria. Will try later. Next year? And my HP1020...

Re: From GNOME to XFCE -- Help & Tips

@MALsPa, That is essentially correct. No easy menu editor in 4.6 that I have found. They say one is coming in Xrfce4.8 so we can wait and hope. There is a way to change the menu but it is a bit of a challenge. Here is some help? or a least a bit of guidance until then: http://forum.xfce.org/index.ph...

Re: From GNOME to XFCE -- Help & Tips

Just in case you haven't come across this:
Look in control panel > System > Login Window (or Entry Window) [mine is in Spanish]

In the Security tab, I think, there is something checked that allows automatically logging in.

Richard.

Re: teclado no responde en GRUB (no PS2 ni USB)

Tuvo problemas con mi impresora HP1020 y tuvo que regresar a LM7 Main. Estoy mucho más comodo con el viejo Grub. Quizas me queda alli hasta el LM9 que será en Mayo? Más o menos. Toda funciona sin problemas en el LM7. Solomente instalo para probar. Fue bien en el Virtualbox pero sin impresora. El pro...

Re: mintDesktop-xfce 3.0 translations needed!(Helena)

Should the strings be translated directly in the file given?
That is, the translated text replacing the original English?

I know Pootle, but haven't located msgfmt. Where or in what package is it?

At this link HP offers the 3.9.12 driver:

Re: HP1018 HPLIP foo2zj and Mint Helena

Hope to have time this short weekend to try getting my HP1020 to print with Helena.
Until then, Gloria Main is my distro of choice, at least on the desktop.

Grub2 is not the problem I thought it would be, but printing is a prime necessity.

Not a whole lot of help, just my experience with my HP1020 and Helena. Installed Helena on both P4 desktop clone and Acer Aspire One. Works great on both. Except, like you I have not been able to keep the printer installed on the desktop. Never tried on the AA1. In Gloria and Debian I used the drive...

Todavia no tengo el Helena en mi Acer Aspire One.

I used the print setup utility in the LM8 Control Panel for my HP1020. It uses the same driver as HP1018. It worked OK and printer is working fine.

Re: Is Mint good on netbooks?

You asked about LM8Helena. Mixed results so far for me, but I just started playing around with LM8. LinuxMint 7 Gloria works fine on Acer Aspire One and on an HP Mini. Everything just works. I would suggest LM7Gloria for the moment. Give it a trial install. In a couple of months there may be some im...

Re: Keep Gimp in Mint 9!

No big deal. LinuxMint Main doesn't include Krusader for me, nor seamonky, moc, streamripper, tilda, mc, testdisk, unetbootin, virtualbox, nor all the dependencies of these. But they are all there in the repositories. Remastersys will let you create your own installation CD. It is usually not worth ...

Re: [Solved, Thanks.] Gparted crashed. Lost extendeds ....

Testdisk is an amazing tool. It recognized the unallocated partitions, resolved them and wrote them as logical partitions. Thereby recovering all 100 GB of my data partitions. Truly great.
