It's hard to determine the cause of the problem. It could be that you chose incorrect partition during installation and/or the installer was not downloaded completely or something else. I suggest you use Windows-recovery-DVD or something like that to recover your Windows as well as recovering the initial partition. As for installation of linux-mint, you ...

since i'm not an apple-user (maybe the guys at https://apple.stackexchange.com/ know it better) i'm not sure about the OS X boot manager, but some time ago i read it's not a real boot manager because it's really stripped down... thats why rEFIt and it's successor rEFInd was created! to make it really easy: i would recommend to follow "your" tutorial (it's ...

Memory Issue This is most probably a memory issue. One thing to do is to limit the memory usage of imagemagick. As mentioned here: -limit type value, you can limit your usage using these options: -limit memory 512MiB -limit map 512MiB Further, as you're saying that it is slow even AFTER imagemagick is run, in that case look for some ghost processes ...

Actually I got it working thanks to this blog. The interesting bit is : To run 1Password on Ubuntu 14.04, install Wine via apt-get. You must start both 1Password.exe and Agile1Agent.exe to get connection to the browser. Here's my script: #!/bin/bash echo "Starting 1Password..." wine ~/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files\ \(x86\)/1Password\ 4/1Password.exe ...

You can use wmctrl for this, as example from the old linux mint mate forum, I think you also can use it in cinnamon: wmctrl -r :ACTIVE: -e 0,0,0,width,height This should work. If your screen is fullscreen you should use: wmctrl -r :ACTIVE: -b remove,maximized_horz,maximized_vert wmctrl -r :ACTIVE: -e 0,0,0,width,height source: ...

Two solutions: OSX Virtual Machine: Run a VMWare OSX image inside Linux and install XCode. You will have the most accurate iOS emulator where you can choose iPad2, iPad. iPhone5, iPhone6, 6+, rotation of screen, etc. Google Chrome: Load your webpage, right click and click on Inspect Element. On the new window called Developer Tools click on the mobile ...

The quickest way to test it would be through a browser extension that automatically resizes the browser to resolutions specific to mobile devices. There's even extensions that will request mobile sites. The not so quick way, is to use an online simulator like http://transmog.net/ or ...

You might need to remove some maximization flags first: wmctrl -r :ACTIVE: -b remove,maximized_vert,maximized_horz;\ xdotool getactivewindow windowsize 500 1080 windowmove 1420 0;\ wmctrl -r :ACTIVE: -b add,maximized_vert

Does this command work for you (uses wmctrl): dist500fromright=$((`xrandr | grep \* | awk '{print $1}' | sed 's/x.*$//'`-500));y=`xrandr | grep \* | awk '{print $1}' | sed 's/^.*x//'`;wmctrl -r :ACTIVE: -b add,maximized_vert && wmctrl -r :ACTIVE: -e 0,$dist500fromright,0,500,$y Breakdown xrandr outputs a list of geometries and the * shows the ...

In Linux Mint 17, the file is bash.bashrc in the /etc folder. /etc/bash.bashrc

I think you were very close. Just go into Settings => Startup Programs and then click on the Options tab. There, you will see a checkbox saying Automatically remember running applications when logging out Just uncheck it.

This appears to be related to the default shell, which is dash not bash. ls -l /bin/sh Based on this answer given by @Gilles, you could try changing the first line of your configure script. Change this #!/bin/sh to #!/bin/bash See also this from the Linux Mint forums. You can verify the default shell with this command. readlink -f /bin/sh ...

That is two very separate questions. First, wine and viruses. The truth is that when running wine you are allowing windows programs to run inside Linux. In theory this allows viruses too. There are some real limits, for example wine doesn't have direct access to hardware, and it's C:\ drive is just a folder in your home directory, but yes you can get ...

Looks like compositor in Cinnamon is not working properly, it is probably an issue with your drivers. Unfortunately, it seems that you can't disable compositing in cinnamon manually: Github issue. My suggestion is to install some non-compositing wm like openbox and try if this issue will reproduce. Besides, try different drivers. Now you use drivers: ...

If your system is using pulseaudio you could use pactl: pactl set-sink-volume 0 +15% or pactl set-sink-volume 0 -5dB though you could also specify an integer or a linear factor: set-sink-volume SINK VOLUME [VOLUME ...] Set the volume of the specified sink (identified by its symbolic name or numerical index). VOLUME can be speci‐ ...

This is related to this question. Apparently it's impossible as of now. You won't get animations either. I don't know why this is but that was what was said in the linked post on the answer to that question.

I don't think this has to do with fonts. The invisible windows look like a graphics stack problem. Try switching to a non-compositing window manager temporarily, and see if the problem goes away. Re corrupt files, I'm not sure how they'd get corrupted unless they were being written or replaced during the crash. I suppose font caches and such might be ...

I had the same problem and I found a solution. There are many other variants of what I call the "10 second" issue. My situation was exactly chleba's. I could not ls or apt-get. So I pressed <ctrl>+<alt>+<F1> and I got into tty1, and I logged in as root. However, I could still echo $PATH, which gave me something that I changed (messed up) ...

This problem still exists in 2015 in Linux Mint 17.1. To remedy the situation, you will need to install hunspell or myspell modules for your preferred language. E.g. sudo apt-get install myspell-en-us Then after doing this, comes the KEY step. Open LibreOffice and go to Tools → Options → Language Settings → Writing Aids and select the spell check modules ...

If the program runs on PlayOnLinux well and you are satisfied with that, it will most probably be faster than in a VM. This would be my first preference. You can check applications' combatibility at WineHQ. Running windows programs in a Virtual Machine (like with VirtualBox or KVM or VMware) is quite convenient, especially for non 3D-games. However, ...

Wait, the terminal text is invisible AND you don't see text in dropdown-boxes from X-Windows widgets?? That sounds like a font problem to me. You do know you have a console, right? CTL-ALT-F1 should get you there. At least then you have a working, local terminal, one which you can read. (Usually, ALT-F7 gets you back to X, but I can't say for sure on your ...

in OS X use the following: osascript -e "set Volume 7" highest osascript -e "set Volume 1" lowest osascript -e "set Volume 3.5" middle You can even set the volume to other fractional levels: osascript -e "set Volume 1.75" 25% volume

Sometimes, a reinstall might not work because there may be dependencies that are corrupt, but not reinstalled because the OS thinks they're good. Try these: On your invisible terminal, try installing debsums. sudo apt-get install debsums. Then, a visible terminal would really help at this point. Init the freshly-installed package. sudo debsums_init Then, ...

You need to purge vlc-nox as well: apt-get purge vlc-nox In general to find out where a file comes from, dpkg -S comes in handy; in this instance you'd run dpkg -S /usr/bin/vlc

My best guess would be that you had more than one copy of VLC installed. apt-get purge removed the system-wide copy, but will have left any other that may be in your path. You could use the command which vlc to get a full path.

Ah, okay, after many horrid hours of installing and uninstalling drivers, I finally cleaned out my fans with sprays of canned air. Eight little dust bunnies came out and my computer fans now sound normal again. Try this quick fix if you're running into problems before sinking time into software fixes!

You can delete the folder .wine because you have uninstalled Wine and are not planning to install it again. Lots of applications install the personal configuration in the persons home directory. A removal of the application leaves them untouched.

Petra is based on Ubuntu 13.10, Saucy Salamander. The Saucy files were kept around on http://archive.ubuntu.com until a few days ago; they are now available on http://old-releases.ubuntu.com. If you really want to continue using Petra, you should replace "archive" with "old-releases" in your /etc/apt/sources.list configuration file. There hasn't been any ...

There are several ways, but I think the easiest is to install the NoSquint Extention, which lets you set a default zoom level (for text and overall separately, if needed), and also makes it easy to adjust on a site-by-site basis.

The kernel update tutorial posted on the Linux Mint Community is like a spam/fake. One can remove the version 3.18.2-031802-generic by running: sudo apt-get remove 'linux-headers-3.18.2*' 'linux-image-3.18.2*' In my particular case, everything works well now.

I think you can only get these to work with 32bit, Ubuntu 12.04-based systems. I recently reinstalled on of these, and I got the hardware video acceleration to work with Linux Mint 13 (not the newer ones). Couple of years ago when I got that netbook, I had to compile a patched kernel to get the video acceleration to work. Later, the drivers became available ...

A guess: you are now actually using MTP for accessing your Walkman, and MTP sucks. Details The Operation not supported error could indicate that your Walkman uses an MTP implementation that doesn't support "direct" access. According to http://intr.overt.org/blog/?p=174 this kind of direct access is an Android-specific extension, so it's probably not ...

Note that to make the command sudo adduser $USER vboxsf work, you'll need to log off and log in again. Otherwise the new group isn't loaded. You can exit a shell session using exit or by pressing Ctrl + D. A reboot will work too.
