[SOLVED] Problem installing ATI drivers on Linux Mint 13. Packages will not install.
location: linuxquestions.com - date: October 2, 2012
Hello there. I am trying to install the ATI drivers on Linux Mint 13 x64 and I get this error when I attempt to install the packages from the repositories for my distribution. I previously tried to install the drivers from the binary installer I got from the ATI website and that did not work. I am attempting to install the driver packages from the Linux Mint repositories and having no luck.
I tried a solution posted here: http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=49&t=103909 but no luck.

Trouble with verbose boot in Linux Mint 13, need Ubuntu user's default.plymouth
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 28, 2012
Hi guys. Back when I used Ubuntu 10.04 LTS, I found a handy way to enable verbose boot by going into Synaptic and removing all packages that matched plymouth-theme-*. I wish I could do the same with Linux Mint, but it appears as though the developers have installed several themes that aren't even part of a package - they're just there when the distro is installed and there is no way to remove them with apt, which I assume would automatically update default.plymouth whenever a theme is installed or uninstalled. So I need an Ubuntu user who removed all the plymouth-theme-* packages on their computer and has verbose boot working to post their contents of
Right now this is what I have:
Description=A theme that features a blank background.

Installing ddwrt using a Linux computer
location: linuxquestions.com - date: September 15, 2012
I'm looking at installing dd-wrt to my parent's Linksys wrt54g router. The reason is that, for some reason, their wireless doesn't connect very well, even though it did work up until a few months ago.
I have them set up running Ubuntu 12.04 on one unit, and Linux Mint 10 on the other. I've been going over the dd-wrt guides (all twelve million of them) and from what I read, the instructions seem to expect a Windows computer to do the install. I've installed Wine to the computer that's hard-wired to the router, but since things can go bad in a hurry in this situation, I'd like some input before I try it. And good luck trying to register to the dd-wrt forum, the captcha won't work, at least it didn't for me.
The guides also say that I have to set my "host" computer's IP address from DHCP to a static address of 192.168.1.17, and I don't know how to do that, offhand. The computer I'll use to do this is the Mint computer, if that helps.
I couldn't find a guide from anyone who

Trouble Formatting Hard Drive in Linux Mint (Trying to Install Another OS)
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 14, 2014
So let me just preface this by saying I'm not great with computers which means I'm even worse with Linux.
I built a computer not long back but forgot to factor in the cost of an OS so I installed Ubuntu. Everything was alright for awhile until suddenly Ubuntu stopped connecting to the house wifi. Tried everything but nothing worked. Eventually I thought maybe switching OS's would work (Don't know why I thought that) and installed Mint over Ubuntu. Needless to say, the problem didn't sort itself out.
Now I'm trying to install Windows 7 using a USB (No CD drive on my PC) because I don't have to know-how or patience to deal with Linux anymore. Got to the install screen when it said there were no drivers. Someone told me it's because Windows doesn't sharing space with other OS's and that I'd need to format my hard drive to rid it on Mint. I tried doing that but I keep getting error messages, mostly this one:
I have no idea what any of that means.

Help Installing Civilization III on Linux Mint
location: linuxquestions.com - date: September 22, 2015
I started playing the "online" internet-based Civilization on my new Linux Mint installation and have discovered that you cannot save a game and come back to it later, so I want to install an .ISO of "CivIII" and run the game locally. I have WINE installed and have tried various methods and all result in failure. I have several different .ISO's mounted atm and one of them completed the install but the game will still not launch.
Having trouble installing Kubuntu using Wubi on my Dell laptop
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 17, 2008
I downloaded Wubi and ran the program, and I believe that Kubuntu has installed, though I cannot seem to get it to work. After I installed Wubi, I rebooted my computer and saw that I now have a choice to run windows Vista or Kubuntu.I selected Kubuntu and it installed, but when I restarted again and tried to use Kubuntu it didn't work. What happens is that the splash screen comes up and it looks as though Kubuntu is loading, but then after it goes to a black screen with a blinking hyphen and stays there until I turn off my computer, and then it goes back to the splash screen before shutting down. Is there something that I'm supposed to type into the black screen? I can't seem to get to the screen where I need to input my user name and password.
I'm new to this, but all I really wanted to do was dual boot Kubuntu and Vista, because I really don't like Vista but have to have it for school, so I need to leave it on there. I used Wubi because it seemed easy and I didn't want to partition
