Re: Poll: Desktop environments

Using LMDE, I am mostly using Mate. Given time, it could the known DE for stability and ease of use. I also have the XFCE desktop installed, but it doesn't feel as comfortable, though I understand why some people prefer it. Everybody has their own personal idea about what makes a good DE I know, but...

Re: How do I switch keyboard languages in 10 Lxde?

Sorry I couldn't be of help. I posted on the off chance because at the time no other users had posted suggestions. By the way, did you try using Control+Space to switch keyboards? It had slipped my mind when I posted before. Using Ctrl+Space works with other Linux Mint editions when switching to Asi...

Re: Doing Updates lost wireless

You can take it bit by bit, Muka, rather than installing all your upgrades at once. If you select to do only Level and Level 2 upgrades, it doesn't mean that you never get the Level 3 upgrades, only that you aren't downloading them at this time. What I do is download Level 1 and level 2 updates and ...

Re: How do I switch keyboard languages in 10 Lxde?

Hello tomi87 I haven't used Lxde Mint but maybe there are 2 things to look at here. In Linux, for security reasons, you often have to enable things before they work, sometimes as root. It's possible that (1) you need to select languages in Keyboard Settings and (2) that you have to enable the langua...

Re: Doing Updates lost wireless

Hello Muka Everybody has different software needs and opinions, I guess, for me I like trying new things sometimes and currently I have a choice of different Linux systems at boot. I'm multi-booting but LMD is my favourite distro: I find it lean, quick and responsive. Everything so far has worked ou...

Re: How to make Triple boot system

Hello Unni If you installed 3 operating systems and you can only see 2 at boot, perhaps this is because you did not update the Grub2 bootloader. Open a terminal in your Linux System, and type: $ sudo update-grub When Grub has been updated, reboot your computer. If you are using the Windows bootloade...

Re: Mint 11 and Firestarter

Same problem. I tried starting it from a terminal too and got no joy. My Japanese keyboard and my Firestarter firewall do not work properly in Linux Mint 11, perhaps because it's based on Ubuntu, which has a habit of taking something good, breaking it, and calling that innovation. In contrast, both ...
