Re: Replace LMMQ64bit with LMMQ32bit

Boy I can't find any detailed information on how to replace my current distro with a new one. I have a good idea but the choices are confusing as I attempted it, then backed out. Please, detailed info only, preferably with some screen shots so I will know for sure what we are discussing. Thanks Chr...

Re: uninstall linux mint

but it seems installing windows xp after linux mint is difficult. So probably the way i am left with is Its shouldn't be. Windows will overwrite linux's bootloader. All you have to do is once the windows installation is complete go into the LiveCD and put Mint's bootloader back into the MBR which s...

Re: Software installation is the one and only weakness of Li

The folks at mint only develop mate and cinnamon. xfce and KDE are entirely separate from mint, the mint team just offers a version with them installed. Point being expecting consistency across xfce kde and mate is like expecting consistency across opera chrome and firefox. Exactly my point, I do e...

Re: Software installation is the one and only weakness of Li

For example the media server programs OP was talking about that are so hard to install on Linux Mint (or in fact any Ubuntu or Debian distro) already have scripts in the AUR for automatic compilation and installation (https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/pms/ and https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/um...

Re: Wired ethernet not working.

After installing Mint-13 64 bit next to Windows-XP, ethernet did not work in Mint. System has RTL8111/8168 PCIE on board. Installed the right driver from RTL. (lspci -v) tells me that the driver is present. (ifconfig -a) tells me that eth0 exists. I gave (ifconfig eth0 up) to start ethernet but I a...

Where would that option be? I am trying to mount my tablet to my computer, not a USB drive to my tablet. I tried mounting the computer from my tablet using an app I found, and got a message on Mint saying that "LINUX MINT" was unable to be mounted. At least I got a response! It should pop up in the...

Once i get rid of Openjdk (I guess Icedtea get unistalled as well) It will set itself as the system d...

Re: Mint 17 MATE. Already 180+ updates and 165MB+ download?

Since Linux Mint uses the Ubuntu base repositories and Ubuntu 14.04 was released in April you will find that most of the updates come from Ubuntu. True, hadn't considered that one. I'm just always surprised a new distro comes with so many updates a week later. Yeah; I get that on one of my other co...
