Re: How to upgrade from LMDE2 Mate to LMDE3 Mate

Zorzi, Thanks, but what is the best way to do this (LMDE2 Mate to LMDE3 Cinnamon) without loosing my data and programs from LMDE2 Mate? I do have enough space on my HDD to install LMDE3 Cinnamon so should I burn the LMDE3 disc and install it using the partition manager to add it alongside LMDE2 Mat...

Re: How to upgrade from LMDE2 Mae to LMDE3 Mate

Since there's no LMDE3 Mate but only LMDE3 Cinnamon, upgrade will be hard and risky.

The best thing to do would be a LMDE3 clean install, and then install Mate on the side of Cinnamon.

Isn't MATE 1.18 in the debian backports? Not sure if backports would be an issue in LMDE 3 or not.
Mate 1.20 is in Debian Stretch backports. LMDE3 is Stretch-based, so there should not be trouble to use backports.

Re: Where is Mate ?

Thanks for that. I was considering adding the LMDE2 repository to the hosts file then installing Mate and Mint-Meta-Debian-Mate from there but may as well have the latest Mate while putting in the effort. It hadn't occurred to me to restore the Mint look through appearance in control centre. Adding...

Re: Where is Mate ?

I've installed LMDE3 that I found on a US mirror... Cinnamon is running in software rendering mode = high CPU. The reason for that is the SIS graphics in my old laptop, it was expected. I need to install Mate, not want to need to so as to resolve the problem. How do I go about this while retaining ...

Re: LMDE3 - Install Complete MATE Desktop

Instructions for adding Stretch backports can be found here: https://backports.debian.org/Instructions/. Somebody should try this with a LMDE 3 test install :) Done and it was seamless! I'll test it out and try and get a guide up if the dev team doesn't mention anything about how to install MATE wh...

systemd?
Well, I'm not sure anymore. I thought LMDE2 was SystemV equipped.

Re: Linux Mint Debian Edition 3

Is there a procedure to switch distros from LMDE2 Cinnamon to Debian [Stretch] Cinnamon? Hello. This may be difficult, because of break risks with removing specific mint repos and packages. I had tried to convert a LMDE 2 Mate to a pure Debian with no success. You should do a clean Debian Stretch i...

Re: After 2nd shutdown will not load desktop

You may try via the terminal:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get update

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install mate-desktop-environment-extras
Then you will have to select Mate at the mdm login screen.

But 512 MB RAM is very few. You should upgrade your ram.

Re: [SOLVED] Opera web browser

Hello, Opera 12.16 is an old version. It should not be used because of potential security threats. The Debian Jessie (LMDE2 base) libdbus package looks too old now for latest Opera versions. Unless LMDE3 comes quickly, it means you'll be stuck to Opera 50 for a while. Did you try Vivaldi ? It would ...

Re: Is it the end for LMDE?

LMDE is not dead. LMDE2 is supported until 2020. And from what I read, LMDE3 is almost finished.

Re: Installing MATE on LMDE2 Cinnamon

Thanks! I didn't know that two DE's can't exist well on the same system.
Well, you can give it a try (for the worst and the better). But you must be conscious that, sometimes, there may be conflicts between software, notifications daemons and configuration files. Well, this can be fixed, though.

Re: Installing MATE on LMDE2 Cinnamon

For a full mate experience, you can install: "mate-desktop-environment-extras"

But catweazel is right. Installing two different desktops side-to-side is never a good idea. You'd better test LMDE2 Mate with a live iso.

Re: Linux Mint Debian Edition 3

I'm sorry if my words were a little bit "agressive". I understand what you feel. I was really hoping to see LMDE3 release a few times after Stretch release. And I still check potential news regularly. But now we know that we should not have to wait very long. I switched from LMDE2 to Debian a year a...

Re: Linux Mint Debian Edition 3

I would still have liked to have seen LMDE 3 released in what I consider a time appropriate implementation, but that ship has sailed. Yeah, patience is required. We've been more and more focused on LMDE3 since Stretch was released more than 6 months ago. But LMDE2 is still supported. I ended up mov...

Re: What's the correct Flash plugin for Firefox?

Well, with LMDE2, I'm used to remove mintflashplugin.

I prefer using flashplayer-chromium (from dmo), coupled with browser-plugin-freshplayer-pepperflash (from backports).

This way, flash is working both with Chromium (and chromium-based browsers) and Firefox.
