Re: Fn key inverted

I think I moved an earlier report into the support part of the forum - not sure whereto tough as I don't think this really is a bug
It's some configuration error - will come back to you when the flu leaves me so I can think properly

Re: Wireless security

Sorry - GUFW is the "firewall" application included by default - just type guf in an open menu I don't know all that much about VPN but you should use a VPN and inside the tunnel use encryption A VPN does not use encryption by default In the Network Manager applet you find a tab for VPN See also thi...

Re: Menu getting stuck sometimes

periodically - and that means?
Normally this is because /apps/mintMenu/pin_menu gets marked for some reason

Re: Wireless security

Not quite sure I understand you fully - there are so many "strange" ways to connect
I would recommend a Deny setting in Gufw and then use a VPN
I would always recommend a VPN as internet is inherently insecure

Re: DSL Verizon connection problems

Please read the simple rules
in the link in the red box on top of the page
And please also clarify as it is not at all clear what the problem is - does ethernet work or not or is the modem that is the problem

Re: Manual install/Synaptic Questions

You will get updates for anything installed through synaptic
That "canonical does not" statement is only there to tell you it's not an "official" Ubuntu package
Always use Synaptic, apt or the software portal if you can

Re: iptables mac-source.so not found

Please don't try to edit IPtables directly - it's so hard to do and easy to make mistakes
Use a "firewall" to edit - Firestarter maybe, there are others (Guarddog)

Re: Samba mounting in fluxbox

I'm not that familiar with fluxbox but Mint 6 fluxbox had a Thunar add-on that allows users to share files with Samba but I can't remember the status for the present release in that respect
I would think that "Shared folders" in Fluxbox mintConfig does use Samba though

Re: Amarok not working

To begin with - is the CD recognized at all, can you see it in Dolphin (the file browser)?
Not in Virtualbox I hope because there are some problems with that

Re: DVD drive not showing when certain DVD's are inserted

If you intend to burn something else - which probably is the normal reason to erase (or blank) a disk just start the burn and you'll be asked if you want to blank the disk
If you just want to blank there is an option in the burn programs, but no right click

Re: Can we get a number of posts per page for the forum options?

Did not know that there was a "mod" for that
To preserve the stability of the forum we do not install mods - we've had some bad experience with that
