SOURCE: Desktop problem

It is possible that the task bar is in 'auto hide' First thing you should do is rest your cursor on all four sides of your desktop for a few seconds and see if it appears. If it doesn't than move your cursor to the bottom of the screen and right click and choose 'properties' and uncheck the 'auto ide box'. I am not positive that this well solve your problem, but its the best I can do at the moment. I well research it and find more info, than I well post it for you.

Lost internet connection linux mint 14


Installing your wireless driver on a Linux distribution is only half the battle.
Once it's installed, you have to configure it.
This means adding the network name, or SSID (service set identifier), and the passkey for your wireless network.
In older versions of Linux, this had to be done with the "iwconfig" command line tools.
Luckily, Linux Mint has incorporated a graphical utility for configuring your Ethernet and wireless adapters.
Open the "Control Center," which will be found under the main program menu on the bottom right of your computer screen.
Click the "Network Connections" icon under the "Internet and Network" section.

Click the "Wireless" tab in the "Network Connections" window.


Click the "Add" button.


Type the name for your wireless network in the "SSID" text box.


Choose one of the options under the "Mode" drop-down list. Most users will choose the "Infrastructure" option.


Click the "Security" tab.


Choose your network's security protocol from the "Security" drop-down list.


Type the key for your wireless network in the "Key" text box.


Click "Apply" to save the changes.


Click the network connection icon in the task bar. It will look like two computers and can be found next to the clock.


Click on the name of your wireless connection to connect to the network.



http://www.linuxmint.com/wiki/index.php/MintWifi - The_network_manager.

Activate a Wi-Fi Card for Linux Mint
Log into Mint as user root. Launch a command shell, either by logging in in text mode or by launching a Terminal window from the graphical desktop.

Type the following command into the shell:
iwconfig
Press "Enter." Make a note of the name chosen by Linux Mint for your Wi-Fi card it will be the only word displayed flush with the left edge of the screen.



Type the following command into the shell:
iwlist wlan0 scan
Replace "wlan0" with the name of the Wi-Fi card you noted earlier.
Press "Enter."
Mint will display a list of the wireless networks in range that you can potentially join.


Type the following command into the shell:
iwconfig wlan0 essid library-wireless
Replace "library-wireless" with the name of the network you want to join, from the list generated by the "iwlist" command. Linux Mint will join the network.
At this point you can browse the Web and access the Internet in other ways via the Wi-Fi card on your computer.

Missing battery indicator in the task bar


Hi,

No this is more typical with Windows Vista users as updates can disable the icons from the notification bar.

Chose 'taskbar' tab, then click 'customize' and chose the option for the battery icon and change to 'show' .


If you need anymore help please post back.


Regards.

My itouch won't connect with my wireless network in my home. I have a Netgear router. My ITouch has been working (connecting) for over 6 monts without any problems. Nothing has been changed. All other...


I would turn your itouch on and tap the top bar where the battery and signal show.
a screen will pop down and show your wireless connection. tap it ans check your settings.
make sure you renew lease on your wireless and use the wep code which is on the label of your wireless router.
you should have signal now

good luck

Wireless switch


Although the wireless switch on your Acer does turn on/off your wireless card, you will also need to make sure that your operating system (Windows) has the wireless card enabled.

Do the following:
  1. Go to Control Panel (Start -> Control Panel)
  2. Double-click Network Connections
  3. Right-click on Wireless Network Connection / WLAN (you can tell it is disabled if the icon is greyed)
    3dce7ab.jpg
  4. Click on "Enable" (if you see Disable, your network is already enabled)
You should check the bottom-right-hand area of your screen (in the menu bar) for your wireless icon. If this is not appearing, you'll have to go into Network Connections again and do the following:
  1. Right-click on Wireless Network Connection (your wireless network adapter)
  2. Select Properties
  3. Click the checkbox that says "Show icon in notification area when connected"
    685e49b.jpg
  4. Now click on the Wireless Networks tab (at the top of this dialogue box)
  5. Scan for a network and connect to it.

Volume level display


it sounds like your laptop drivers aren't working properly.. possibly the program dealing with your sound volume is corrupted or missing.

I'd try reinstalling your keyboard/touchpad drivers. what is the make and model # of your laptop?
