Re: Can't compile in Mint 16

Ha ha ha, I hadn't even noticed that after I posted it, I will work on it, that might make a big difference thanks Monsta.

Actually it is a credit to Mint that it holds together so well when the sources are messed up like that, this is the first time I have ever noticed anything amiss.

Re: migrating files using tar.gz

When I reinstall or install new distros I just copy the entire /home/username/.mozilla and /home/username/.thunderbird folders from the old to the new distro. It has always worked for me. The trick is to copy them over before you run either Firefox or Thunderbird on the new install, that way they wi...

Can't compile in Mint 16 SOLVED

I don't often compile programs these days, but when I tried to today I couldn't get past the configure script, I got the error configure: error: C compiler cannot create executables A bit of googling led me to find that this might be because g++ is not installed, which it isn't, neither is it instal...

Re: migrating files using tar.gz

and then when you restore it on a new system you end up with /Music/Music ... Oh yes, I have been there too! But there is a cunning and quick command line way out of that hole. I goes like this: mv Music/Music Music2 This renames the second or 'inner' Music folder to Music2 and places it in your /h...

Re: Automount USB stopped working

Well, if some sticks work and others don't I would try reformatting the ones that don't work from within Linux - after removing any data they contain first of course - you will probably have to use windows for that if you cant see them on Linux. Use gparted for reformatting - install it if you haven...

Re: Can't batch resize on gThumb

I had a look at this for you but I can't recreate the error so I can only suggest very general things, most of which you have probably already tried. Do you have an old or experimental version of gthumb? Mine is version 3.0.2 and seems to work normally. Have you tried a reinstallation of it? All bas...

Re: Laptop overheating (FUJITSU LIFEBOOK AH530)

I have the AH532 model. Checking the inxi output there is not a lot of difference between them. Yours has a later bios version than mine, and an earlier GLX version also a different wifi card (I changed the wifi card in mine for an Intel version). Apart from that and the different model number they ...

There is not much of a choice and as far as I know most of them just indicate virus infected files and leave you to deal with them at least that is what clamav does and it is the only one I have experience of.

Re: Automount USB stopped working

Hello Burlington and welcome to the forum. The automount function is normally handled by your file manager in my case that is Nemo, but I doubt Caja is all that different if that is what you have, so have a look in the File manager menu - Edit/Preferences/Behaviour Tab/Media Handling and make sure t...

No idea what that is, but you certainly don't need it. Boot into your live cd/usb and try and remove the file from there.

That is certainly an interesting concept Orbmiser, although I notice that in order to use it you have to draw an area around your chosen geographical location, which immediately begs the question, how accurate does your drawing have to be? I'm pretty useless at drawing with a pencil, even worse with...
