  1. ok i guess its different for mint (i use ubuntu)....when you see the grub menu, try pressing the "tab" key, you should see a command line use < > arrow keys to scroll to the end of the line and add "nomodeset" (without the quotes of course) after quiet splash but before the dash (-) at the end, like this: before: quiet splash – after: quiet splash nomodeset – then press enter or the ctrl and x keys to boot.
  2. try adding "nomodeset" to the boot parameters. when you boot up, do you at least get to the grub screen (where you have choices to boot into mint, recovery mode, memtest, etc...)? if yes, then when you see the menu, press "F6" and you may see some boot parameter options (works in ubuntu, not sure about mint)....if you see the options, scroll down (use up/down arrow keys) and highlite "nomodeset". then press "esc" to get off the option choices, and press enter to boot. if pressing "F6" does not bring up those options...you will have to add it manually: at the grub screen...
  3. see if there is any help here: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1674405&highlight=frame+found+output+blender
  4. i'm not sure if you know already adam, but just in case.... you can record/add the audio track at the same time that you record the video. thats how i did mine. i got an audio track ready to play, clicked on kazam and when it opened, i chose the "gstreamer-h264/matroska" for the encoder type. also checked off audio source 1, and chose: "monitor of internal audio analog stereo" from the list (which also included my hdmi out to the tv). next i clicked record, which gave me a 5 second count-down before starting....during the 5 seconds, i went back to my ready-to-play audio track, and
  5. could be wrong, but i think you both might be getting this thread and the one about compiz burn confused....because kazam was brought up there as well.
  6. adam, when you selected burn....was that line filled in, or blank? mine was originally (by default?) set on glide 2, when i changed it to burn...that line was blank and burn would not work. also, the burn length was set at its lowest setting of 50. it only worked when i added something into the window match line, and of course increased the length of the burn to something other then 50 (which is so fast i can't even see it). no idea why you are guys are having problems with kazam. it installed without issues for me, and works really well. it is by far the easiest screen capture ap
  7. you're welcome. about those settings....the 500 number was just what i set mine to. that controls the length of the burn, a higher number results in a slower burn, a lower number will bring a quicker burn. i have no idea what that "window match" line i had you copy and paste actually means. i only know that burn does not work if the space is left blank. i did not know what to put in there, so i just copied the info from the glide 2 effect into the space and was pleasantly surprised when it worked. i was just playing around with that setting and i found a much less complicated looking,
  8. sanford, as much as i hate video tutorials, i will do my best to show you how i set up the burn effect in compiz-config-settings-manager (ccsm). i will not add audio, so i will explain it first then you can see how i did it in the video: first open ccsm, go to > effects > animation in "open animation" tab, under "animation selection"....click once on the top effect (glide 2 ?) to highlight it, then click the "edit" button. in the window that opens, double click inside the box that says "windows match" to highlight the entire line, then right-click on it and choose "cop
  9. i added: ppa:kazam-team/stable-series to my software sources.
  10. synaptic says i have compiz version: 1:0.9.6+bzr20110929-0ubuntu6.1 i never used any tutorial or anything to set it up....when unity came along, i just kinda felt my way around. enabling a few of the effects caused me to loose unity, the top panel and all windows management....my only recourse was to press ctrl-alt-f1 to drop to a TTY, then do a sudo reboot to get back to the desktop. after that whatever effect i was trying to enable would be working fine. was just a pita to do that 2-3 times when first setting it up. btw that half-screen, snapping windows effect is called "grid
  11. to tell you the truth adam....i don't really know. i think thats one those effects that just worked "out of the box" for me, because i do not remember changing anything to enable it.
  12. just installed zazam in ubuntu after adding the repository to my software sources. i don't usually play around with this screen capture stuff...but kazam seems to work very well! http://youtu.be/VCvbCSb6J2w
  13. *for ubuntu 11.10 users (and maybe others)....don't know if this affects anyone else, but for me, the nautilus-gksu extension has not been working for the last couple of releases (since unity maybe?). recently came across a fix for it: just run the following in a terminal: sudo cp /usr/lib/nautilus/extensions-2.0/libnautilus-gksu.so /usr/lib/nautilus/extensions-3.0/ then log-out and back in again. should work as originally posted after that. and hey thanks to banned member JackeL for posting this tip!
  14. for error code 0x80070002....see here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/910336 try the "fix-it" button.
  15. played around with some settings and it seems to have increased performance a bit on the intel x25, 40gb ssd (which is now /dev/sdd): sudo hdparm -t -T /dev/sdd /dev/sdd: Timing cached reads: 23312 MB in 2.00 seconds = 11668.05 MB/sec Timing buffered disk reads: 620 MB in 3.01 seconds = 206.09 MB/sec also tested with ubuntu's disc utility:
  16. maybe he/she wants the music on their computer's hard drive, and the cd/dvd burner or rom is broken? i could be wrong, but i believe as bb does....that it is perfectly legal to dl the music you already own a copy of, and add it to your library. and as mentioned already, it is not illegal to download from frostwire. as bruce stated above: there is plenty of legit content there that is free and legal to dl. shouldn't be so quick to jump to conclusions and make rash assumptions joe. ...certainly true about the trojans though. it can be a great place to pick up something nas
  17. from what i understand (and yes, that is not much)....flash is very cpu intensive. so the graphics card may not be as much of a culprit as you think. there is another add-on from the same developer of the flash-aid which duane linked to above, which is called "flash video replacer". it "basically replaces the flash object with a regular video object and streams a mp4 file when available or a flv file". which should result in a smoother playing video. oops...forgot the link, here it is: https://addons.mozil...src=userprofile
  18. We found the following perfect match(es): Debian Ubuntu Linux Mint
  19. duane, open a terminal in kubuntu, and run: sudo update-grub
  20. i see this topic has not been brought up in awhile, and i was curious as to how my drives were performing....so here goes: sda is a 40gb intel SSD sdb is a 500gb WD blue 16mb cache sdc is a 1.5tb WD green 32mb cache sdd is a 640gb WD black 32mb cache sudo hdparm -t -T /dev/sda /dev/sda: Timing cached reads: 21450 MB in 2.00 seconds = 10736.63 MB/sec Timing buffered disk reads: 562 MB in 3.01 seconds = 186.95 MB/sec sudo hdparm -t -T /dev/sdb /dev/sdb: Timing cached reads: 21488 MB in 2.00 seconds = 10755.72 MB/sec Timing buffered disk reads: 266 MB in 3.
  21. shot in the dark really, and did not notice if it was tried yet...but if you downloaded using IE, try using firefox or something else to d/l
  22. terry, are you running a command to extract it? or just right-clicking and choosing "extract here" (or similar)? if i right-click and extract, i get the same presumably empty .DOB file, which in ubuntu i can right-click on again and choose "extract here" again.... which then creates/extracts a folder with the driver in it. don't think you can do that in suse though, so... try opening a terminal and run a command like the following: tar -C ~/Downloads/ -xf ~/Downloads/2011_0427_RT3572_Linux_STA_v2.5.0.0.DPO.bz2 btw, i downloaded the file to my home folders "Downloads" folder...
  23. mvp's? awards? rewards? ....what a crock of ms/bs. gotta admit though...it is quite comical watching you all pat each other on the back every time one of you drones gets one of these "awards".
  24. unfortunately yes, if you dare to mention ubuntu, gnome or unity....then you can expect exactly that. welcome just the same wolfen!
  25. thanks bruce....i was afraid it would involve "baking" it. but 'ya know....if its still available, i just may give it a shot. i am always up for a good challenge. thanks pal
