Dual boot (GRUB) issues new install..

I have a dual boot with Windows 10 and using "Betsy".

I have to hit F12 to enter into my boot menu to launch LMDE2.

Is there a way that I can have GRUB launch immediately without having to hit F12?

Keyboard backlight control in Cinnamon?

Hello, I am using LM 17.1 with Cinnamon. Trying to make the jump from KDE to Cinnamon and I have LM installed on a Mac Air 5,1. I can't find a keyboard backlight control in Cinnamon. KDE has this under "Power Management".... Any ideas how I can get a light control for keyboard in Cinnamon? Thanks.

Good time to install LMDE?

I prefer using a debian base instead of ubuntu. Is now a good time to install LMDE or best to wait until Betsy is released? If Install LMDE1 will the upgrade path (changing repos) when Betsy is released roll smoothly or create issues?

Thanks. I thought I would ask before installing.

NFL Sunday Night Football stream and pipelight.

I installed pipelight, enabled it and it did not work with streaming NBC's Sunday Night Football.

I am using Chrome Stable (built in flash).

Does anyone have thoughts as to what I can do to watch this with LM17?

Thanks.

Re: Using LM17 Cinnamon on Mac Air....Awesome....LM18 ?

I have a smaller SSD drive on the air so I loaded Mavericks on a 32GB thumb drive. I do my firmware updates for Mac off the USB drive. Then, have the entire SSD Drive dedicated to LM 17.

I experienced the same thing as you have with Linux Mint on a Mac. FAST and smooth running!
