Title: No flash on my mint netbook
Post by: Melissa on February 16, 2015, 08:33:49 pm
I am well pissed off- was prompted to update Firefox, so did so, now adobe not working. Went into package manager and chose it but still not working. It is FREEZING downstairs and wanted to watch iplayer under the duvet- please help Mark! Now I have to go sit in freezing lounge and eat my supper there and watch prog there.

Checked firefox plug in page and it was deactivated- god knows why. I ticked it reebooted and it works but says its vulnerable. At least I can have my supper up here under duvet and watch it. Will be back later Mark!

See above for the sudo stuff! Thanks Mark- I thought too that it was still trying to recognise the older version. I had the caps on hence the p/w problem. I wish the netbook had a caps lock- I can't tell if it's on - no light as the laptop has.

You need to free up some space on your had drive

a) if possible move some of your saved files from your home folder off to something like a USB stick

b) empty your recycle bin

d) run these 2 commands
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get clean
then
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get autoremove -y
then post the output from:

Yeah, it's small SSD. Got another HD to be pout in it it- 2 years' now, but need to persuade someone from LUG group to put it in for me and then help me load Mint back on!

Rubbish bin is empty and got very little files on it.

Most of my files are on my Maxtor portable HD.

Delete it with:

You should enable the "backports" repo to ensure you get the latest packages (such as firefox). If you open Update Manager, the click on the View menu, then select Software Sources. In the window that pops up, check the "backports" box (in the middle of the window). Next, go to either the PPA or Additional Repositories button (not sure which), and look for the line that talks about Medibuntu, and uncheck it, then click OK, then click on the Refresh button to update all sources. That should give you some more package updates, and should clear up the issue with the medibuntu repositories being offline (they don't exist anymore).
