Re: Mint 16, how to switch the clock between 12h/24h?

To switch to 24 hour clock, right-click the clock applet and select "Configure". Click to use a custom date format and set the date format to "%H:%M". Or if you want to include the day, month, and date like on previous Linux Mint Cinnamon releases, set the date format to "%a %b %e, %H:%M". Yes, tha...

Mint 16, how to switch the clock between 12h/24h?

I just can't find it, my system format uses 24h, but the clock still displays 12h... where is that option hidden?

Re: Please explain LMDE update system

Thank you all very much. From some old blog post by Clem I was under the impression the system will get more or less monthly update packs, with bi-annual or annual updates it appears this is less "rolling" than Ubuntu update model... Of course, I understand that is possible to just use Debian repos,...

Re: Please explain LMDE update system

It's an upgrade for every thing. From Kernel to Gimp, Latex... Exceptions: Firefox gets update everytime a new version gets...

Please explain LMDE update system

I have a basic question about LMDE update system. From what I understand by default it doesn't get all the debian updates, but gets update packs which come very rarely 1-2 per year. By default, without pointing it to normal Debian repos is this the only source of updates, or are there any other upda...

3rd party repos list

Is there somewhere a list of 3rd party repos that can be added to LMDE and even better a way to find in which repo some package is located? I'm new to LMDE and I guess YPPA spoiled me a bit :)

Re: Is LMDE right for my needs?

Oh and one more question - what's the situation with flash and other non-free components like media codecs? Are they in the repos?

Well... yes. Debian has custom repos though... But anyway I'd like to make a little more educated decision - so how often do breakages happen, etc?

Is LMDE right for my needs?

Hi, I'd like to ask for your advice - I have a laptop I use only occasionally. I need a system on it that doesn't necessarily have the absolutely latest software, but one does get updated. And I want it to be hassle-free, I don't want to reinstall it every 6 months like the normal LM. So, at a glanc...

Re: Why not merge with LMDE?

What do you mean by merge with LMDE? It's a standalone offering not based on Ubuntu. Just trying to understand or clarify what you mean. i think the original poster meant put both on the same ISO letting the user choose between which one they want to install Yes, I meant one common install .iso, su...

Why not merge with LMDE?

It seems to me that merging with LMDE could be a good idea, basically it would only require a small modification to the installer to allow the choice of the default DE, even the software selection is pretty much similar now...

Re: firefox sucks

Firefox should stay, it is a kind of established standard, with extensions it integrates better than Chromium... And while this is just personal opinion for me it's still the best browser, stable and with a level of customability that nothing can compare.

A few questions about the future of Linux Mint

We stand at a point in time when there are a few interesting choice for Linux Mint: -Will Mint 11 adopt or at least consider adopting Gnome 3.0? And if yes what is the future of Mint Menu? -Will Mint Install start supporting Paid applications that we can get in Ubuntu Software center (just 2 so far,...

Re: Please bring back the upgrade tool.

You can still upgrade manually using the same terminal commands if you wish, this is safer than a gui upgrade tool anyway, though still not without risk. Why is a GUI tool less safe than command line???? Also trouble is that the "official" guide to upgrading http://community.linuxmint.com/tutorial/...

Please bring back the upgrade tool.

I am well aware of the rationale behind recommending a fresh install of each version of MInt. And it's very fine if it's a recommended method but there is still an alternative - like it was before. Fresh install is tedious for some of us, Backup tool has its problems and in truth does not allow for ...

Re: Hot to Add Mint KDE Helena to Gnome edition

It's a pity this does not work as well as with Kubuntu installed on top of Ubuntu...

Anyway GDM should allow switching in the same manner as KDM - by choosing the "session" option before login.

Re: Should there be a netbook remix?

It's a pity there is still no netbook remix of Mint, esp. an official one... Netbooks are a still growing part of the market and a one that has a decent Linux share... it'd be great to offer a Mint alternative to Ubuntu's Netbook and Moblin remixes.
