Linux Mint 16 reached end of support/life in July 2014¹, you should consider upgrading, as other (security) issues in that version will not be resolved either. Since Mint 16 is based on Ubuntu 13.10, the same advice as Deim0s gave for Ubuntu applies for you. ¹ If it wasn't, you would probably just be able to update bash from the original Ubuntu repository, ...

/media/ is a stub where most modern distributions mount removable media when they are plugged in, e. g. USB hard drives, optical media, flash drives, etc. One of them you have mounted is identified as HDD2-200GB which is appearing as a 12.5GB filesystem, which is full. /mnt/ is another stub which is generally used for permanently mounted filesystems. ...

Sure, you can install every package you need install on gnome: apt-get install k3b k3b is a CD/DVD burner and Audio ripper. Of course, on first installation of KDE application such as k3b, apt-get first installs some basic dependencies, for following installations such as kmail or kate, apt-get doen't need to re-install the same dependencies.

I tried installing the Slovak keyboard on my Cinnamon and could get the { symbol with AltGrb: If that doesn't work for you, you might need to change the keyboard's options: Then, choose the key that sets the 3rd level:

For LinuxMint 17 with KDE it was: System Settings > Input Devices > Keyboard > Advanced > Ctrl key position

I found this article which suggests a couple of ways to stop the screensaver from activating. I have not tested this but since they presumably issue events to stop the activation (the second does at least), that should also count as activity for the inactivity monitor. You'll have to test this though, I'm not sure it will work. Install caffeine. This can ...

We first need to be sure that inside VLC, we click on Tools >> Preferences menu option, this will open the preferences window dialog, and we need to make sure the Options "Allow one Instance" and "Enqueue items into playlist in one instance ...

You can check if your MAC address really changed by using ifconfig and look the HWAddr value behind the appropriate device name. What has worked for me on Mint, without any additional programs to install is using ifconfig: sudo ifconfig eth0 down sudo ifconfig eth0 hw ether 00:01:02:03:04:05 sudo ifconfig eth0 up or in more permanent fashion by adding ...

Have a look in: /var/log/apt/history.log and you should see all the packages that were removed. You should be able to re-install them.

Several executables are either missing from your system or cannot be found because your PATH is incorrect: -python3 which is why /usr/lib/command-not-found cannot be executed. - cat (/bin/cat), which is why command-not-found is executed - id (/usr/bin/id), as used in the standard /etc/profile The first is a link and its availability somewhat less of a ...

I think that this 'Toshisba' icon represents graphically a whole drive as a device just like /dev/sda. Device cannot be mounted this way. Only partition formatted with filesystem which is represented in your case as 'File System' icon. I suggest to ignore it or maybe there is some setting in a filemanager to hide it.

Do two things: Add to your startup scripts the command xrdb -merge ~/.Xdefaults (or .Xresources, or actually whatever file you want to write your configuration to). Apparently any executable script in the folder $HOME/.kde/Autostart will be executed at startup when you use KDE as your destkop environment; I can't check because I don't use KDE. Add the ...

You can easily find the location of such configuration info by making a small change to one of the application settings (make sure you can undo it if necessary) and then do: find ~ -type f -mmin -1 Which find all files under your home directory that changed in the last minute. You will find that the files are under ~/.config/autostart/ (for each user)

Execute these commands in a terminal, in this order. Step 4 adds the Xorg Developers PPA. Once completed, tell me if step 7 installs the same version you downloaded. Step 3 removes the offending module that is still loaded. Step 5 removes the need for nomodeset on your kernel command line, so please remove whatever edit you made to /etc/default/grub ...

I had the same problem with Ctrl+Z and Ctrl+Y, including a corresponding xev output with "KeymapNotify event". The solution was: Assign a new keyboard shortcut to exactly that combinations with xfce4-keyboard-settings and delete them afterwards. After that Ctrl+Z (undo) and Ctrl+Y (redo) worked again.
