Yes, but that's just live-installer issuing a reboot command. It has nothing to do with the greyed out buttons.
I still haven't found a solution for that.

I noticed the menus in gtk2 apps weren't rendered correctly with bluebird, so I installed all of the gtk2-engines to fix it (I don't know which one actually did it). The update-alternatives tip worked and now I have the correct cursors.

Edit: Guest Additions also didn't work for me, but when I manually install them the installer complains that they have already been installed in a different way and to uninstall those first.

So, if I install murrine-themes what are the consequences for the used oxygen theme (I suppose nothing at all)?

The greyed out startup and shutdown buttons issue is solved.
I had exactly the same problem with LMDE KDE a while ago.
It was related to the upgrade of xinit.
I just downgraded it to the previous version and I got my buttons back!

regarding murrines-themes it will not impact oxygen (as far as i know but as soon as i install i will try it), it will just give rendering support when needed for the themes that use the unico and/or the murrine engine(s)

i kew that i saw this shutdownless problem somewhere :lol:

"zz' to the rescue.... :lol:

Yes, Murrine themes/engine fixes the theme issue. (to some extent.. :? ). Theme changes, but icons only HALF change and panel has white fonts on light grey.

Some icons in Docky are quite blurry.

I logged out/in, but i"ll try a re-boot.

Have you installed the other gtk2-engines-* from synaptic (the qtcurve one has lots of kde dependencies so I wouldn't install that)? I had to do this to make bluebird work. Besides, logging out and logging back in (which I had to do to switch to the Mint-X icons), I don't know what would fix the icons (which icon set is it?). Also, the oxygen theme works fine for me with all of the gtk2-engines-* installed.

Edit: logging out and logging back in is required after switching I think (and after installing the engines).

Edit 2: Here's a screenshot:

Yes, the Mint-X icons work perfectly. The ones that I had a problem with were Faenza? This same set has worked on dozens of other distros... :?: :wink:

Most of the themes I have tried work, render correctly (no-win95) DARK themes render correctly but light (gray in color)....

Good
Zukitwo
Gnomish Gray
Atolm-gtk3
Buebird

Dark themes that render ok, but LIGHT
elementary dark
Gnomish Dark
selene

Still something missing.

OOPS. My white fonts on light gray panel just changed to black on their own (switched a couple of themes)

================

EDIT:

OK, Never mind the above.
Just playing switching themes /window border/icons, et. Now dark themes work as they are supposed to (DARK).
Dont know what I did, if anything...
Its just some of the Faenza icons that are a little 'dodgy'.

I missed my nap. I am getting cranky..... :lol:

Could Xfce 4.10 have any influence on the way these themes render?

Nope.

Got the same 4.10 in my old LMDE/XFCE where they all worked fine.
See my last post. Themes seem to have sorted themselves.... :lol: MAGIC... :shock:

I also noticed that the flash plug-in was listed as not installed.

Since I normally install Google Chrome stable, I downloaded the 32-bit deb file to try in the Live DVD. Found out it was missing libcurl3 and libnss-something (I forgot to write it down) when dpkg -i was invoked to install. It is running fine now that I installed the missing packages.

Usual problems with detecting my monitor (bad EDID) yielded 1024x768 resolution on 1280x1024 monitor. xrandr was able to fix that problem, no problem with not detecting gamma of display, which is another bug which sometimes pops up on my machine.

Pepper-flash with Chrome works fine on JupiterBroadcasting, Youtube, and Farmville2. Farmville2 and my Google apps normally complained about flash being out of date.

Sound worked without fiddling, either.

installing gtk3-engines-oxygen solves (as far as i can see) the inconsistency between gtk2 and gtk3 app

I seem to have difficulty downloading iso..

1. Download a few times, and not complete... perhaps network issue or server issue?
after many tries,, a some 6 hours later, I got the complete iso.. :)

2. dd to USB flash, boot computer without issue

3. installed to one partition. set boot loader to install on root partition, no issue too.

4. chainload to the partition and boot OK.

5. play with default theme only , but change font to larger size to make the poor eyesight happy :mrgreen:

6. proceed to try DDM for the first time.
one comment, extremely slow....

it shows semi- correct? on three things
a. HD5450, correctly detected, also correctly recommend to install fglrx. but i am not sure if the version 1:12 is correct, perhaps that was available in the repos.
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] nee ATI Cedar PRO [Radeon HD 5450]

b. BCM57788, this is wired LAN gigabit NIC
DDM detect the chip correctly.
however it thinks it is a wireless .
also it said this drive is uninstallable... this should not be true, without it (tg3) running, I wouldn't have internet access :mrgreen:

c. PAE capable. correctly detected and correctly suggested to install pae kernel

see picture captured http://i49.tinypic.com/9bi545.png


7. so I ran the desktop for a while, some 20-30 minutes
and :::: it is the hottest!! among any other OS I used.
typically cpu temp was in 36-38degc regular usage
this installed OS showed single CPU temp at 58degC.. and the box is far too hot to touch..

I have to turn on a big blower to cool the box!!

next i choose to install fglrx.
it took a very long time to install... some 20 minutes, quite unusual... perhaps server/network or something?

8. reboot and running, glxgears show gears are running..
did not paid too much attention to it because the box is too hot to run

a quick check on menu>settings and menu>system: could not find any AMD icons that usually appear after successful ATI driver install..
not sure if fglrx is really working..

decide to install pae kernel to attempt cooling the hot box
8. reboot, now running with pae kernel 3.2.0-4-686-pae
after big fan cooling outside the box for a while, turn fan off, run for some 10 minutes..
now cpu temp reached 36-39degc :mrgreen:

9. check glxgears on terminal, no gears moving :( . terminal shows
wayne@lmdexfce:~$ glxgears
X Error of failed request: BadRequest (invalid request code or no such operation)
Major opcode of failed request: 136 (GLX)
Minor opcode of failed request: 19 (X_GLXQueryServerString)
Serial number of failed request: 12
Current serial number in output stream: 12

not sure what is it, usually it will run gears and show some terminal output.

to be continued..

EDIT..
purge fglrx driver.
back to using AMD driver's .run method directly from AMD website.
http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/l ... ng=English

using AMD website's recommended driver installer: amd-driver-installer-catalyst-12.10-x86.x86_64.run

install OK.
reboot, use terminal , glxgears shows gears running with terminal output as

Re: The unofficial LMDE XFCE

Very good alpha
BUT
would not login till wiped partitions (with gparted under pmagic from USB Stick) and reinstalled. Although I think that's due to my hybrid SSD HD . other mints/debian have problem also installing. :lol:

1.My wireless card not seen (always seen out of box for last few years including LMDE!) :cry:
2. media not set to auto-play. Easy fix
3. DVD don't play. 'Libdvdcss2' not installed by default. Easy Fix

May want to install (by default) either 'Hardinfo'(?)(system profiler/benchmark or 'htop'
also maybe a lite web cam app (to test) camorama(??)

My computer Thinkpad x200 tablet (8g memory) wirless card 'broadcom'(? :oops: )

J.Jay
P.S. this will probably replace my sparky I used for last month1/2 (distro hopper :mrgreen: )
and maybe my main Xubuntu (used for years)

Few more tests, with the same USB flash which works well on first desktop computer

Some observations:

On NEC laptop, does not boot.
after count down 10 second, it hangs for very long.
So I hit ESC key to check display, text shown:

aborted
:boot

edit:
second attemp, with compatibility mode, it boots
seem it does not support the intel graphic??? :evil:
Graphics: Card Intel Mobile 4 Series Chipset Integrated Graphics Controller X.Org 1.12.4 Res: 1280x800@59.8hz
GLX Renderer Mesa DRI Mobile Intel® GM45 Express Chipset x86/MMX/SSE2 GLX Version 2.1 Mesa 8.0.4 Direct Rendering Yes


further test, no wireless on intel wifi, a bit surprise, may be non-free firmware not installed? unlikely since broadcom BCM57788 is part of non-free firmware also.. :?:
Network: Card-1 Intel Ultimate N WiFi Link 5300 driver iwlwifi v: in-tree: BusID: 05:00.0
Card-2 Realtek RTL8111/8168B PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet controller driver r8169 v: 2.3LK-NAPI at port d800 BusID: 04:00.0




On Dell laptop,
after countdown 10 seconds, it goes on to boot process, when it is settled, the image shown on the dell display is that of a plain blue bakcground with the 'mouse' right at the center ( one of the old xfce wallpaper.


On an old compaq presario desktop, 10 year old, some 10 kg or 21 lbs .
( haha, sound like similar to Gene's old box??) :mrgreen: :mrgreen:
P4, 2.4G single core, slow machine but heavy and solid, worth keeping as backup.
surprisingly all hardware survived for 10 years, except I changed power supply more than 1 year ago.

It took very long time to boot... but it eventually boots up :mrgreen:

will test later..

THE USB pendrive still in rear port of dock.

Will live and install, but the install won't let me pass the 'login/greeter. :evil:
