If anyone, anyone can tell me the package that handles the stupid little gui login screen in mint
I'm running LMDE and I wan to be able to run as root, easily, and be able to choose my window manager at the same time. This distro should revert from the norm, and keep apps that force non-root use out of the distro.
Trying to build vlc
apt build-dep vlc # install prerequisites
apt source vlc # download the source
apt build -b # compile .deb files to parent directory
Googling the error indicates it's been a problem in Arch and Maverick / Julia.mcurran wrote:Also, building the source from aptitude does the same thing. relocation R_X86_64_32 against `ff_a64_muxer' can not be used when making a shared object
As the text says, you need to recompile your FFmpeg/libavcodec/libavformat with pic enabled.
It won't have. The WM (metacity / mutter) is independent of the DM (session launcher).mcurran wrote:As for the GUI not allowing me to login as root, I just removed mdm, which didn't effect my window manager setup at all, as far as I know.
It won't break your current setup -- the idea of MATE was to avoid conflicts by rebranding everything. If you have cinnamon installed, gnome-shell won't add much.Would be cool to test out gnome3 on LMDE. I'm debating on trying to install it now. I'm not sure if it will break my mate setup though, or leave it alone. Would be cool to have gnome3 as a separate option like cinnamon.
