- as you all know (if following this topic closely) gnome 3.8 is coming to testing (not tomorrow but soon)
- when that happens, and if the present version of cinnamon is not updated to gain gnome 3.8 compatibility, cinnamon will break.
- it's probably a good idea to install a light DE ot WM alongside cinnamon for the "rainy days"


Thanks for the heads up. I think I'll stop updating until the storm passes :)

Just a heads up. Xfce 4.10.x is now in testing. :D

I've been running 4.10.x from Siduction for many months without incident. Install of 4.10.x from Debian testing went fine. Everything appears to be in working order.

- Deluge crashes with python error if you try to remove a torrent.
- Xfce xkb-plugin will not let you define a hotkey to switch layouts, the option has disappeared.

- Xfce 4.10 screenlock broken. Xscreensaver daemon is not started.
Edit: It seems that Xfce 4.8 always started the screensaver, a bug that's fixed in 4.10. So I had to create an autostart entry for xscreensaver. http://bugzilla.xfce.org/show_bug.cgi?id=7826

Upgraded to Cinnamon 1.8.8+lmde and mdm 1.2.5+lmde . Previous problems with mdm and nemo are solved. Only problem seems to be a noticeable startup delay with the cinnamon panels loading on boot. Worth the upgrade though :)

Neat, I hadn't seen the upgrade was available.

Is there a better way to preview MDM themes than log in, choose one, and log out?

In a terminal --> mdm-theme-emulator
And load the index.html file of the theme you want to try.

Is that me or there is still not a new kernel in testing ? I think the 3.2.0.4 is still the only one in testing. An I right ?

Oh right. My kernel is :
Code: Select all
emmanuel@manu-laptop ~ $ uname -a
Linux manu-laptop 3.2.0-4-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 3.2.32-1 x86_64 GNU/Linux


But 3.8.1 and 3.8.2 are in Sid since a few weeks and have not be pushed in testing. Why ?
3.9 is already there... Is there something I am missing ?

Switched from lmde repo to pinned debian testing at a higher priority than mint repos, with unstable and experimental repos pinned at -10 so they only install if forced. when I did apt-get distupgrade, I got the errors pasted in below with the new kernels failing to install. To make that long story short, pango and plymouth conflicted, with pango updated to a higher version than plymouth allowed. this caused the kernels to not install. the workaround was to get the latest plymouth, 0.8.8-9 from experimental to replace 0.8.8-6 that is in testing and unstable.
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install -t experimental plymouth

note that your repos need to be pinned as above for this to work.

interesting...I got new pango several days ago and my system still working fine. I'm not really sure but this problem might only affect on 32bit system.

maybe not 64bit/32bit related
first time i saw this was on the 28th may http://forums.solydxk.com/viewtopic.php ... =160#p7202 (64bit system tracking sid) and that led me to this bug report >> http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=702040 (and as you see also a 64bit system)

I also got the pango problem with kernels: linux-image-3.2.0-4-amd64 and linux-image-3.9-6.dmz.1-liquorix-amd64.

Also is anybody affected by this: https://bugs.launchpad.net/pidgin/+bug/1108056 - Pidgin freezing at startup 75% of the time.
It seems that if I disable the xmpp accouts (gtalk) it get's a little bit better.

Printing problems today (unable to send data to printer). What I did to fix it is reinstall all cups related packages, remove the printer through the GUI and add it again. Now it works again.

it might be easier for us if you could list the package needed to reinstalled. new LMDE user might doesn't know which packages are related to cups.

even though we already said 'don't' so many times, there are still some new user driven by their pure curiosity who jumped into testing. I believe this thread is not made only for LMDE experts. the main purpose of this thread is to help anyone who follow testing - regardless their knowledge on LMDE - to fix their problem after an update broke their system. please also consider that your information might also useful to find the package which causing this bugs so that the devs could quickly fix it.
