Thanks for the suggestions :)

No problem with USB - only with Bluetooth, on which I've wasted far too much time trying out ideas on both Ubuntu and Mint forums :(

As for the webcam, I guess the guys on those forums have just resigned themselves to their fate

BTW, one of the reasons I abandoned Ubuntu was that every other update resulted in this message: "Requires installation of untrusted packages".

Ubuntu forum posts insisted it would be solved by redirecting to the Main Server - that's where I was getting it from to start with!

Now I'm getting similar messages from Mint "Requires installation of unauthorized packages"!

My Software Sources settings are:
Download from Main Server
Downloadable from internet:
Main packages (main)
Upstream packages (upstream)
Imported packages (import)


Any idea what's going on?
