Re: Kernel Update 4.9 briefly in Update Manager

Hello Karl,

Debian Stretch has Kernel 4.9. Might it be possible that there was a hiccup with the Debian repositories and I got offered updates for Stretch instead of Debian Jessie (LMDE2)?

Re: Kernel Update 4.9 briefly in Update Manager

Hello Karl, I am using LMDE2 Mate 64-bit. Kernel 4.9 update appeared as Level 4 Update in Update Manager along with a very extensive list of Level 1 + 2 updates and a few Level 4 security updates for Kernel 3.16. System: Host: nb-8730w Kernel: 3.16.0-6-amd64 x86_64 (64 bit) Desktop: MATE 1.18.0 Dist...

Kernel Update 4.9 briefly in Update Manager

Today Update Manager offered an extensive list of Level 1 and 2 updates. However, among the offered kernel updates were also updates to Kernel 4.9. After a refresh, I installed the Kernel 3.16 updates, they were gone again. Was this a hiccup or a preview of things to come?

Re: I am having trouble installing VMWARE on Linux Mint Debian Edition

"Free of charge" is not the same as free software. I'm aware of that, but I can use it non-commercially without legal implications. Do you want to imply, that Debian prohibits the installation of proprietary software? I haven't used VMWare on Debian yet (presently no need for it) but installed it o...

Re: Radeon x1600 mobility drivers

Have you considered trying a real light weight DE like XFCE on this Mac?

Re: Radeon x1600 mobility drivers

I can't speak from experience with a Mac Book but one of my HP notebooks has a x1600 video card. Even with Mint 13 (Ubuntu 12.04) only the open source Radeon drivers were available. Graphics performance is pretty mediocre and the darn graphics runs very hot with the Linux drivers (it ain't an awful ...

Re: Sorting in Calc

You could try to change the numbering to leading "0" for single digit numbers, i.e. Matthew 7:1-5 ESV to Matthew 07:01-05 ESV. That way you should get the numbers sorted in consecutive order, at least for two digit numbers 1 to 99.

I have installed every Mate update since the switch to GTK 3.x.

It used to be also huge in the "Other Aplications" list in Caja but that issue seems to...
