[URGENT!] GTK+ crashes

I have a backup of all my GTK+ themes from the last Linux Mint 16 installation. I decided to copy them to the themes folder of LMDE just to save time from downloading all over again. This is where things went wrong. After changing a control theme to one of my backed up themes, nemo exited, the scree...

Re: Which updates should I install?

Got it! Seems like there is no certainty in Linux updating, even if the updates are ranked as trustworthy (1 to 3) :wink: Thank you, I should be more cautious from now on

Which updates should I install?

So, after installing Linux Mint 16, the update manager lists out around 180 or so updates for my OS, ranking from level 1 to 3. Usually, I would choose the option "select all" and install everything that's offered. However, it seems not to be a good idea because just an hour ago, I have ha...

[URGENT] Can't boot after running Bleachbit

... And it's not the first time. So, in the time span of only 1 day, I've had to reinstall Linux Mint 16 twice. All because of running that little dangerous software called Bleachbit . After installing the OS (with partitions setup manually, the 1st time without a boot partition, the 2nd time there ...

Re: Need help with installing Mint on a MBR disk

Thank you all very much. I have successfully installed Linux Mint following usbtux's 2 helpful videos (Please accept my apology for not carefully watching your instruction).

Icons folder deleted; Shift + Numpad strangely assigned;

Hi everyone, I'm a new Linux Mint user, but not totally new to Linux. I have had Ubuntu installed a week ago, but I tweaked it so heavily that it booted even slower than my Windows 7. Therefore I have made a decision to switch over to Linux Mint 16, since it has cinnamon DE installed by default. Bef...
