[FIXED] UP5 not fully done and visual glitches

Postby sandt1g3r on Sun Sep 23, 2012 9:34 am

I am also having this white font issue. I am on Cinnamon and I did a partial upgrade , but the fonts in the menu of LibreOffice and first column/line numbers in gvim are all gone.

What's wrong with updating only the stuff thats bugging you ? Is there no shorter way to resolving this than updating all my 1k packages ?

PS: I did the symbolic links thing but it didnt help.

Code: Select all
apt policy mint-x-theme mint-themes
mint-x-theme:
  Installed: (none)
  Candidate: 1.0.7
  Version table:
     1.0.7 0
        700 http://packages.linuxmint.com/ debian/main amd64 Packages
mint-themes:
  Installed: 1.0.8
  Candidate: 1.0.8
  Version table:
 *** 1.0.8 0
        700 http://packages.linuxmint.com/ debian/main amd64 Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

What is wrong with the partial upgrade is that it may lead to all kinds of weird errors no one here has ever seen - even those brave men who track Testing or Unstable repos. LMDE is based on Debian Testing, after all.

Please read this thread for more info: viewtopic.php?f=198&t=112836
LMDE FAQ contains some explanations about various Debian releases and repos.

Fixed finally. Updating all the Xorg,X11 and Gnome related packages did the trick.
