Re: LMDE MATE 64bit slows down dramatically

Under Lubuntu 14.04, which I had also on my desktop (as a dualboot OS besides LMDE) the problem occurred too, especially after watching videos. Maybe it is simply the newer kernel. I don't know, but especially during the FIFA World Cup I found the issue pretty annoying. The problem never occurred wi...

LMDE MATE 64bit slows down dramatically

The problem After surfing the internet sooner or later my computer (LMDE Mate 64bit) is gonna slow down. It's a systematic slowdown. The Blowfish Benchmark (hardinfo) is for instance usually roughly 4 on my computer, after slowing down it is roughly 10. Other Benchmarks are worsening at a similar r...

zeitgeist should become opt-in

Today I stumbled over the program zeitgeist , which I got preinstalled in LMDE Mate. zeitgeist was started automatically after booting LMDE. It is characterized quite catchy by its developer: zeitgeist is a service which logs the users's activities and events (files opened, websites visites, convers...

Re: PC build for LMDE

I don't care about UEFI, but I don't have a choice, now all motherboards have it. I don't know if I can disable it As far as I know, all UEFI boards are having a Compatibility Support Module, which basically means, that UEFI can be switched off. You have to change several UEFI settings in order to ...

Re: Why do new people give up on Linux?

I followed Linux over the past 15 years. In 2000 I considered Linux as a niche product for programmers. But things have changed dramatically! Nowadays Linux is easy-to-use. For almost everything there are graphical tools. Actually for many Windows XP users it is easier to migrate to Linux Mint than ...

Re: Linux Mint 17 Qiana LTS strategy?

I cannot speak for the Mint developers. But in my opinion their strategy is completely logical. The policy of Ubuntu has changed substantially. The support of the interim versions between the LTS version was reduced to nine months, on the other hand the support of the LTS versions was extended: 1. S...

Re: Concern about Ubuntu aspects in Linux Mint

Well, all i can say is, if one wants totally privacy, then forget about surfing on the internet That's not the point. If I use Google, then I know, that I send something to Google. If I use Dash in Ubuntu in order to search a file on my computer, then I don't expect, that these requests are sent to...

Re: Question re LMDE from Info page

In my opinion it is important to separate things here. There are - at least - 4 different aspects of a distribution, which can be considered user-friendly - more or less: 1) Installing it 2) Using it 3) Adding new functionality (software, hardware) 4) Updating it Let's walk through this step by step...

Re: Root/admin practices for non technical users

I would not confuse these users with two passwords. If these users are performing the Updates, they of course need the root password. So you have to show them, how to change it, and advise them to change it maybe twice in a year or so. I experienced two Update Packs so far (UP7 and UP 8 ). The Updat...

Re: Debian vs Ubuntu base philosophy

I am trying to make a decision on which Mint platform to roll out, and right now seems to be a terrible time to make that decision with the next LTS version several months away and the LMDE version not available. There is an LTS version (Linux Mint 13 Maya) supported until 2017 The LMDE version (20...

Re: What made you switch to Linux Mint?

My first Linux experience was in 2008 with Ubuntu 8.10 on a Dell Laptop (together with Windows XP). I was really happy with it. In 2012 the laptop broke down, so for a while I used my old Athlon Desktop from 2003 (which is still in use :D) solely with Ubuntu 8.10 out of laziness, although I was full...

Re: Erfahrungen mit LMDE

Bis vor kurzem hatte ich nur einen 10 Jahre alten Uralt-PC (Athlon XP 1500+, 1.5 GB RAM), auf dem ausschließlich Ubuntu lief. Der Rechner ist laut und langsam, deswegen habe ich mir eine neue Kiste besorgt (Lenovo H515s, AMD A6-5200, 6GB RAM). Mit zwei Rechnern hatte ich dann den Mut, bisschen mit a...
