There is just one more thing.. on the 201204 (RC) I have about 4 memtest entries in the grub menu, I'm not sure how those ended up there but I think it might have been something related to installing mdm, anyone else? Should I get rid of them? If so how? :?

So, is there any sort of consensus whether or not people should replace gdm3 or not?

IMO yes but keep in mind that I'm just a useless noob.

1. It looks much nicer and provides more options (like change language).
2. GDM3 was dropped from the final version so its dead.
3. mdm really looks nicer :mrgreen: .

On a unrelated note unlike the RC 201204 final installed on my desktop doesnt have the memtest entries in the GRUB (not that I ever used them anyway) :?

Is there any possibility to change a language in the GUI?

They should make a documentation on how to translate the LMDE because as I said there is no option to translate it through chart

Debian is a well translated project. Most languages are available in the repo so they should be in LMDE too.

Therefore you should be able to;
Code: Select all
sudo dpkg-reconfigure locales

and get a nice alphabetical list of languages.

Space bar to select/unselect and up and down arrows to navigate list.

Tab to jump to the buttons at the bottom.

I have installed dwm, awesome, and bluetile. I have had no success with dwm or awesome. Bluetile works perfectly if I start it from the command line once MATE is running, but if I have it run as a startup application then the mouse is constantly replaced by a hamster wheel, which is quite annoying. It also adds the gnome+bluetile option at the login screen, but won’t start. It would be awesome if there was a MATE+bluetile option. I really just want to know where/what I need to edit ( in gnome2 it was ~/.gnomerc ) to change the default window manager?


Not sure if this is the "most correct" way, but:

Run mateconf-editor (I had to install the "mate-conf-editor" package first; I'm surprised it wasn't there by default)
Go to desktop/mate/session/required_components/windowmanager and change it from "marco" to "bluetile"

Now bluetile will start automatically next time you log in with the standar MATE session.
