    chinese text in file viewer


    I`m one of the newbies to linux and just installed mint 16,
    I`m having a couple of minor problems and would be greatfull for any help offered.

    1, when I view a cd/dvd in the linux files explorer I see all the item on the disk in a chinese font, I did not install any language packs when I installed mint.

    2, One of the main things that I want to be able to do with this pc is when I switch it on I would like it to automaticaly play my masive mp3 file collection in a random order. Itried with vcl and banshee. both only seem to support a limited playlist and not one that self loads at startup.

    any hints or tips apreciated.

    What do you see when you run 'locale' from a command line?

    closed the window, went back to the cd and now its all english.
    its a pc thing and a bit flakey around the edges.

    Howdy. I am a oldbiker also. You are confusing me. ME capable computer and Mint 16 capable computer are generations
    apart. Here is a screenshot of my Motorcycle shop computer playing streaming radio through a external 200 watt per channel
    amplifier in the shop.

    Pretty much doing what you wanted to do in Mint.
    That computer was dug out of a dumpster.

    At least post computer specs. Like that one I dug out of a dumpster was a Emachine 3507, Pentium 4, 512 MB of ram
    that a bored out to 1 gig of ram. I still have (it's a old screenshot) that POS.

    I even made a video http://www.screenr.com/bMh8 with it.

    It is still running as I type this out on my netbook.
