issues lmde

Postby yazdzik on Fri Sep 10, 2010 2:05 pm

Dear friends,

Just a couple of issues with the otherwise astonishingly good lmde:

1. cpu scaling worked otob, but one of the updates created a new linux-image, the one where the devs decided that we don't need speed on demand. They are wrong. Is there a way to go back to the original kernel shipped on the dvd which does not involved re-installing the OS? No big deal as I have a separate /home, but a nuisance. Yes, I have googled this extensively, and it is a kernel issue, but the auto update feature, is dangerous for noobs, since I failt to check that the kernel image was not included in a dist-upgrade, or however you want to describe what the gui does. A rolling distro like debian unstable is great, but only if you are really paying attention! Regression is not fun.
2. xdali clock has been removed form xscreensaver, I need it. Any ideas. Again, googling brought info, no solution.
3. there is no longer easy font installation without kontrol, I have a disk with hundreds of fonts(linguist) so double clicking on each of them would take at least forever. Need command to install all of them at once.

Peace,

Martin

daliclock appears to be a separate package, you should be able to just install xdaliclock via apt and get what you want, hth

if you have to modify things this may help as it mentions daliclock specifically
