Re: Installer crashed: LinuxMint 16 Cinnamon 32 bit

YUMI in its current version 1.9.9.9 is in the process of rewriting. I found that I could not use it to install Mint 16 (MATE) with symptoms similar to the above ones: The installer crashed somewhere in the middle although the md5 sum was correct. I used the Universal Boot Installer instead, which di...

Re: URGENT: Mate does not remember file type associations

Hello Flemur, thank you for your effort. Uninstalling Totem Player was of no use, because MATE then always selected Banshee as the program to play mp3 files. System -> Preferred Applications -> Multimedia is set to Gnome MPlayer, so this is correct. Before I "delve into the wretchedness", as you cal...

URGENT: Mate does not remember file type associations

It is urgent because I want to make s special Christmas gift tonight. I am running the latest LMDE dist-upgrade'd. Every time I open an...

Re: Sound suddelny not working any more

Now you made my tomorrow! But one problem persists: When I right-click on an mp3-file and do

Open with -> Other application -> Gnome MPlayer and select "always open with this application"

MATE only opens it once with MPlayer, the next time with Totem Video Player again and again!? (Why video?)

Re: Sound suddelny not working any more

OK, this made my day! Thank you! Even if I do not understand what is so special about pavucontrol in comparison with good old alsamixer... BTW, for every mp3-file-icon on the desktop, MATE shows me a little triangle in the upper left corner of the icon. When I accidentally click on it or slide over ...

Sound suddelny not working any more

Hi, after using LMDE for more than one year and regularly updating, I noticed today that I cannot get sound any more. There is nothing I have changed AFAIK. I've tested all settings with AlsaMixer, they seem to be correct. Nothing is muted. I have an Intel Corporation NM10/ICH7 Family High Definitio...

mp3 organizer and tagger needed

Hello, this has surely been asked a thousand times before, but unfortunately, the forum search does not allow "mp3" as a keyword, so I have to ask you... I am looking for a good program to organize all my mp3 files. I once used a program that swallowed all my files and sorted each mp3 into a folder ...

Needed: software for laptop webcam

I am looking for an easy tool that can take pictures (or even films) with the livecam that is built into my laptop.

No, I do not want Skype.

Any hints appreciated.

Re: How to remove a faulty entry from the MATE menu?

Each user can have a separate menu configuration, so the config files will be stored under the user's home folder. I am not on my Mint machine at the moment, but it should be in your home folder under something like .config/menu, .local/share/menu, .local/share/applications, .local/share/desktop-di...

Re: How to remove a faulty entry from the MATE menu?

Unfortunately, there is no "edit menu" option. There is a "deinstall" option on the jDownloader entries, but guess what, it does not deinstall :)

How to remove a faulty entry from the MATE menu?

I idiot installed jDownloader via the proprietary .sh script and via the wget-approach onto my clean LMDE. Leave your hands off this program. It does not work, and it is unclear what it does with your installation. Well, the program never worked (the GUI just never pops up, even if I start it from t...

Re: MATE does not remember mp4 as file extension

Maybe a useless question, but - what if you right-click on an mp4 and choose "properties" (That's how it works in Windows, too) and then VLC Media Player? Double-clicking on an mp4 now starts VLC automatically; before, it used to be "Movie player". Or starting the Control Center and then choosing "...

Thank you all, the problem is solved. As proposed, I picked a different mirror, updated, dist-upgraded, and the scalpel package is there. Now the software manager shows more than 37,000 packages to be installable. Again, thank you. S. BTW: Why do I have to do a dist-upgrade instead of a normal upgra...
