Re: Display problem after LMDE2 upgrade

I'll give a synopsis of that last post. I tried the upgrade on 2 different machines, both using Intel graphics (so pretty stock) and had similar problems with graphics at boot. One of the machines I managed to get working, but I had to switch from Cinnamon to Mate before it was stable. The other mac...

Re: Updating existing LMDE 1 Systems to LMDE 2

I noticed this message after my original post: Hi guys. Thanks for the great work. I updated almost 100% successfully. What i can see now is that in the grub menu i have entries for both linux kernels, 3.11 and 3.16. If i start with 3.11 everything is fine, when i start with 3.16 cinnamon doesn't lo...

Re: Faiing at the first hurdle

This thread, or the information in it, should be added to the installation instructions. Referencing the old source repositories really messes things up, and it is easy to avoid.

Re: UP8 breaks network-manager-vpnc

Wow. I definitely asked the right group. My workaround was to use vpnc-connect from the console, but thanks so much for the nm-applet tip. I'll try that. Unrelated, LMDE Cinnamon on UP8 has been a real pleasure to use. Really, really well done. ======================= UPDATE: Adding /usr/bin/nm-appl...

Re: Drop LMDE or turn it over to a community group!

One approach to software is to deliver on time. Another approach to software is to deliver when it's ready. If you keep an eye on the areas of the forum and community where people are testing incoming, you will notice that UP8 has been allowed to stabilize for some time. Rather than picking a date a...

Re: LMDE release date?

UP8 is out. Aside from a break in VPNC support (applet) which looks like a Gnome thing, it was pretty smooth. And I love the way every release seems to add just a little bit more polish. Really nice job!

[SOLVED] UP8 breaks network-manager-vpnc

LMDE Cinnamon 64. Just upgraded. "latest". vpnc is the client of choice for connecting to Cisco VPN. On UP7, I was using the network-manager-vpnc integration to connect. It worked great. Now it appears to be broken. I can still connect using vpnc-connect , so I am not blocked. The Cinnamon/gnome int...

Re: What made you switch to Linux Mint?

I switched from Windows to Ubuntu in something like the 9 time frame. As a developer, primarily Java, Windows is slow and kind of awkward if you want to get any real work done. Ubuntu did everything I needed to get my job done, allowed me to go way beyond what I could do with Windows, and I liked th...
