Re: How to list packages installed since installing LMDE2 ? [SOLVED]

Another option, if you're installing a fresh copy of LMDE2 on the laptop: List all the packages installed on the desktop computer List all the packages installed on the laptop computer (after the fresh LMDE2 installation) Compare the lists So, something like this: Desktop: dpkg-query -f '${Package}\...

Re: Sound always changes back to HDMI from analog on reboot

Same problem here, and I found a working solution (probably somewhere on this forum, but I don't remember). This is on LMDE 2 MATE (might be slightly different on Cinnamon): Menu > Preferences > Startup Applications > Add Name: Sound Prefs = analog stereo [or whatever you like] Command: pactl set-ca...

Re: Best way to replace my wife's computer without losing her current setup?

No, it's the perfect time for him to get a SSD. Anyone still running spinning hard drives in 2017 should be slapped silly. :mrgreen: Yup, there will definitely be a SSD as the main drive in the new computer. Probably a larger HD also, for storing big files where speed isn't an issue. Thanks, kwishe...

Re: Best way to replace my wife's computer without losing her current setup?

Thanks, all. To clarify, yes, the plan is to replace ALL her hardware (except for the monitor, keyboard, and mouse). She is already running the current version of LMDE2, so no software upgrades needed.

Clonezilla looks like a good option -- thank you, I didn't know about that one.

Best way to replace my wife's computer without losing her current setup?

My wife is running LMDE2 on old hardware, and it's time to replace pretty much everything. If this were my computer, I'd just do a fresh installation of LMDE2, add all the packages I want, and fiddle with settings and preferences for a month until I got everything the way I wanted it. If I tried to ...

Re: Evolution probelem with themes????

I don't have an answer for you, but I'm using Evolution and it looks normal, not like your image. Sorry, I have no idea what would cause that.

Got it:
sudo /etc/init.d/bluetooth stop
Still looking for a permanent solution, though.

Audio output quits, maybe related to bluetoothd & pulseaudio

Running LMDE 2 64-bit on a shiny new computer here. :D But I've got an audio problem I can't figure out. Audio output stops randomly. My syslog suggests that bluetoothd is doing something -- not sure what -- that causes pulseaudio to reset, which breaks the audio output. I am not using bluetooth , f...

Re: screenshot not working through printscreen key

@Bill Statler : the file /usr/share/mate-screenshot/mate-screenshot.ui does already exist, but that put me in the right direction : I started "mate-screenshot" from command line and realized that the problem was the same, while starting "mate-screenshot --interactive" does work. So I guess I should...

Re: screenshot not working through printscreen key

UI definition file for the screenshot program is missing. I think this is referring to /usr/share/mate-screenshot/mate-screenshot.ui -- might be worth checking whether that file exists. The PrintScreen button does work for me. (LMDE 2 MATE 64-bit with all current updates, ancient Logitech keyboard ...

Selecting a network printer: oddity in LMDE 2 MATE

Hi, forum newbie here -- apologies if I've posted in the wrong place. I'm running LMDE 2 MATE 64-bit (I installed from the Release Candidate disk, but all updates through today are done). My printer is on a different computer (running LMDE 1) on our home network. I had no problem setting this up fro...
