I am experiencing totally unpleasant issues with all versions of LMDE. The display (on LCD screens) simply hurts my eyes almost as soon as I watch it. I haven't encountered such a trouble when running the Ubuntu-based version of Mint I tried (Cinnamon, MATE).
Some details, now :
This happens whenever I directly watch the screen of my laptop (an Acer Aspire 6930G) or a screen (Samsung SyncMaster) connected through the VGA port of my laptop.
The graphic card is a Nvidia GeForce 9600M GS and I use the proprietary driver (installed using the "Debian" way). I generated my xorg.conf using nvidia-xconfig and adjusted my settings with nvidia-settings. I set the vertical refresh to 60Hz as I do for Ubuntu-based Mint version.
To check if the divers were not faulty (the version 295.20 was the one present in the repositories), I tried the drivers present in unstable (series 304.), but the problem remains.
I also try to tweak the fonts following different methods to make them as polished as one can find in Ubuntu, but the problem is still present.
The problem is present for every desktop environment I tried so far (XFCE, MATE and Cinnamon).
Some advice or idea ?
