It looks like Linux Mint 15 Olivia uses the aufs and/or unionfs filesystems. I've not used Linux Mint but Puppy Linux uses aufs and the behavior you describe is indicative of a multi-layered filesystem like aufs. The short answer is that when you delete files that are part of the original distribution, they are not actually deleted, but they do disappear ...

To get around this ill-designed behavior, go into Settings->Administration->Login Screen, change from HTML to GDM, and then you'll get a login box with more ill-designed behavior, a password prompt but no username. Just hit [enter] in the empty password box and you'll finally get a username prompt. I have not found a better way yet.

It seems that cinnamon-settings-daemon/gnome-settings-daemon is not running. You can put it in startup aplications to make sure it starts when you log in.

I think what you're really looking for is this Q&A from the Wine HQ forums titled: [FAQ] [RFC] How can multiple users share an installed Wine application. === How can multiple users share an installed Wine application? === Wine is a per-user app; every user has their own Wine Registry, with the list of installed apps for that user. So one ...

Unless you need an exact size, you can have a look at LibreOffice download page - their Linux installer has around 200MB, but includes most of the generally available libraries you may (or may not) have already installed - the reason is that it strives to run on a general Linux distribution so it needs to fit a reasonable low common denominator. On the ...

I use "setxkbmap" with no arguments. It seems to reset the keyboard. I have a "shortcut" in my panel that I can use with a mouse for when the keyboard is completely inoperable.

Seems like you could use this to install the Ubuntu Software Center and then change your /etc/lsb-release file temporarily to Ubuntu. Install the applications that you want from SC and then be sure to revert the /etc/lsb-release file back to LinuxMint. Mint's string DISTRIB_ID=LinuxMint Ubuntu's string DISTRIB_ID=Ubuntu Details and the SC ...

Given your description of the issue it sounds like some sort of problem where the mouse is being perceived by the receiver/driver stack on the system as though it has lost (or is losing) power and so it is being disconnected. Searching for this issue I did come across this Ubuntu issue which I think might be at play here as well. There were several ...

In short, Linux Mint does uses exactly the same base as Ubuntu. In fact, if you check the contents of /etc/apt/sources.list, you will see that Mint uses the Ubuntu archives for most of its software. Most likely you have made an error in installing the software. Particularly when you say that you 'downloaded' the software, it implies that you didn't use ...

1: Have you tried hooking up the integrated graphics? You mentioned in your comment that you only have one connection to one of the Radeon cards. If you do hook it up and want both integrated and PCIe graphics, it sounds like you have to enable "surround view" in BIOS. 2: On your first login, when the interface is slow, look in /var/log/Xorg.0.log to see if ...

The issue here is the first entry of the df output: /cow 4062908 3323888 529308 87% / That states that your root partition, the one which is the parent folder of everything else, you can think of it as your C: drive, is almost full (87%). The other lines describe separate partitions (think of them as D: drives) and whether or not they are ...

Linux Mint is not meant to be updated over release boundaries. The suggested approach is killing your old installation by re-installing. I know this is a rather unsatisfying answer, but it's the way it's meant to be from upstream. Trying to do a "rolling" update ia is essence possible but might break in an unpredictable and thus horrible way and when trying ...

You must give the full path : startx /usr/bin/xmonad What happens when you run startx xmonad is xmonad is treated like an argument for the default client : xterm. So xterm xmonad is ran.

This Forum Post may help. I recently bought a new laptop with the new UEFI disklayout, and soon realized that the EFI boot tools that are usable in Windows7/8 are not up too par with even the Basic grub2. It's much easier to: Use your recovery media to boot into Windows. Repair your EFI partition, using a method like so. Install a Recent version of a ...

Solution 1: Run dmesg and watch out for ttyUSB* lines if your modem interface is a classical emulated serial interface. Solution 2: Browse /sys/bus/usb/devices/X-1:Y:*/ until you find useful information. Based on your line Bus 003 Device 013: ID 0421:0007 Nokia Mobile Phones, i would guess X=3 and Y= 12 (13 minus one). Solution 3: Run udevadm monitor as ...

It seems like the problem in this case was a hardware problem, not a software one. After getting a replacement mouse I no longer have any problems. The strange thing is that I didn't have any real issues in Windows, but I guess that's some kind of smoothing process being applied by the OS or the drivers.

Install File Roller and xarchiver. It works for me.

Recent updates to wpa_supplicant have apparently solved this problem. (I am no longer using Linux Mint. I have since switched to Manjaro, which uses wpa_supplicant 2.1 at the time of this writing.)

nVidia binary drivers have been blacklisted by the kernel people for a long time now, as they have been shown time and again to be responsible for all sorts of misbehaviour. Chuck them, the open source nouveau drivers have advanced enormously.

Take a look at this Ubuntu Community Howto titled: AptGet/Howto, specifically this section, Setting up apt-get to use a http-proxy.
