Re: Mint and Drivers

No you don't. Those CDs are only needed on Windows. The Linux kernel developers have programmed the support for most hardware right into the kernel--the core of the operating system. If you could open Terminal from the Menu, and post the output of running the following command, that will show us you...

Re: Mint & Windows 7 on an SSD

Okay, I had a look at all the application profiles in my home folder. du -b .* | grep -v \/ | sort -n The biggest is .mozilla folder (for Firefox) at 64MB.

Re: Is this a bug - Samsung NC10 often crash after katya ??

Well, with just 4 tabs open my Firefox is almost at 1GB. Again, it is using memory cache. My machine has lots of memory, so it uses cache more freely I think. The memory Firefox process is using doesn't say all about what is actually needed, if you discount the cache.

Windows is over bloated? But with what I keep asking myself, as I use Windows 7 at work. Notepad is basically the same as in Windows 95, still completely useless. Couldn't they at least have done something useful with that :lol:

Good news viking777! A new server is not needed, just some optimizations on database and code, see Oscar799's link. So, you can still go on that trip to space :wink:

Intel Atom N270 is not really high-powered CPU. In your output, it lists bmips 3191.69. My Intel Core i5 lists bmips 26337.2. You can't really compare CPU performance that way, but it goes to show there is a huge gap. I can't get my Firefox to use more than a few percents of CPU... Have you updated ...

Re: Where is my taskbar?

Okay, try the following. Run this from Terminal (Alt+F2, type gnome-terminal and hit enter):

Code: Select all

gconftool-2 --shutdown
gconftool-2 --recursive-unset /apps/panel
rm -rf ~/.gconf/apps/panel
pkill gnome-panel
This should reset the panel to its defaults of post-installation.

To clarify; - Linux Mint 11 is based on Ubuntu 11.04 (which is based on Debian), and has GNOME as default desktop - LMDE is based on Debian directly, and has GNOME as default desktop Then you have the various options available for desktops other than GNOME. For Linux Mint 11 that is: - LXDE For LMDE...

I think there are some ways also to do scans for this based on binary files, and violations have been found that way (not recollection at which companies).

You can set a compose key. Go to Menu -> Control Center, and then Keyboard. Click Layout button (IIRC), and there you can choose what the compose key is. Then just press the compose key together with a symbol key (like ' ` ") , release, and press a letter key to add the symbol pressed to the letter....

Vincent as for patents being eliminated. Just me ... but don't think that's realistic or ever going to happen. Even if mega corps are filing patents for every combination of 1's and 0's known to man.

Two things I would suggest from this: 1. Replace the open source nouveau driver for your video card with the binary driver from Nvidia. That might be more stable. Perhaps some Nvidia user can pitch in on this. 2. It looks like you are using Btrfs for some partitions? Please share which, or run "sudo...

Software patent law is a big issue in USA. You could patent using a stick to write letters in the sand on the beach, and happily sue every child who does this naturally. Ugh.
