Re: Toggling Privoxy

If you are using Privoxy with Tor, install firefox extension Torbutton or the Vidalia application to control it.

If you are just using Privoxy, I think indeed there is no GUI button to switch it on/off. You can however configure it through the web: http://www.privoxy.org/faq/misc.html#TURNOFF

Re: Compiz Effects not working On 2nd generation Intel I5

I am using Linux Mint 11, have a 2nd generation Sandy Bridge CPU, and am running Compiz without issues. Only difference I can see is you have the Mobile one, I have the Desktop one. Other than that the inxi -G is completely identical. You should be able to run Compiz :( Graphics: Card Intel 2nd Gene...

Re: Installer fails to see sata disk / partitions

When I start the installer however, I cannot assign any partitions in the partitioning screen. It offers to install grub to /dev/sda, so it seems to detect the disk fine, but no matter wether I have partitions defined on the drive or leave it completely empty, it does not show up in the disk partit...

Re: weather applet in GNOME 3?

Are you using GNOME 3 with Shell? In that case get the 4th extension from this website: http://justinstories.wordpress.com/2011/05/27/five-must-have-gnome-shell-extensions-for-fedora-15/ .

Re: Mint4win on a USB, error

I'm not sure what you are attempting, but if you want to be able to boot & run Linux Mint from USB, and be able to install Linux Mint from it, just use unetbootin . That runs on Linux, Windows and OS X. It allows you to "copy" the ISO image to a USB stick (it does all the work of making it bootable ...

Re: Linux mint 11 hangs at connect to time server

Try installing with internet connection disabled. Just unplug the Ethernet cable, or before installing from the Live CD/DVD left-click on the network manager icon on the panel and disconnect any automatically setup wireless connections.

Re: 32 and 64 bit

Depends on what you do. If you just use Calculator or Text Editor, no it won't matter. If you do anything with media editing or encoding, backups or archiving, anything basically with computations on a lot of data, then yes you will benefit from 64 bits. Put oversimplified: with one processor operat...

Re: Unmounted wrong partition and can no longer boot up

I'm assuming you have: - /dev/sda1 mounted as / - /dev/sda5 mounted as /home - /dev/sda6 is your media partition? Or do you have it setup differently? Please post your fstab again. With the above you would have manually encrypted the media partition, because the installer only does encryption of /ho...

Well, this is weird. You have /dev/sda3 as ext2 (and why not ext4?), so it should be letting you install it on there.

Re: Banshee sound menu integration in Debian

I'm not sure you can. On LM11 this feature of the sound menu is coming from Ubuntu, where this is possible because they have rewritten the way applications and information is shown on the panel. You would need the Ubuntu "indicator" applets libraries, but I don't think these are available in the def...

Interesting questions, looking forward to thoughts on this. Will be installing LMDE after iso respin, so any thoughts on the future here are welcome.

Maybe this will cause a rift in the space-time continuum? Sorry, watched too much scifi as a kid :lol:

Re: Gthumb

Gthumb uses the Gstreamer backend for video playback. A lot of applications that support video playback do that. One way to investigate "how is this application doing this", is to look at the dependencies in the package; i.e., what other packages does this application need to function? You can do so...
