Re: Automatic Login Field Filling Issue

This is now NOT SOLVED, I wonder if that's a first ? It appears that ebay have now withdrawn their old login page so the problem has returned of it being not possible to type in either the Username or Password fields making it impossible to sign in. I am unable to sign in on any of Firefox, Chromium...

SSD Trim

What's the default with SSD Trim in LMDE3 ?

It's possible to set trim as a weekly task but it likely won't defer to run later if the PC is off when it's scheduled.

Does anybody use a better method ?

Re: [SOLVED] Automatic Login Field Filling Issue

This turned out to be an issue with a new ebay login page and nothing to do with Linux Mint.

The old login page works as it always did... https://signin.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?SellItem

Re: ADMINISTRATORS: Will there be an LMDE3 Mate in the near Future??

A post I made a few weeks back... I installed Mate from Stretch backports which gave me version 1.20 but without audio integration. I did a fresh install of LMDE3 as the install was new. I then used these instructions that I found elsewhere in these forums: apt install mate-desktop-environment-core ...

Re: Automatic Login Field Filling Issue

I can't mark this as solved as the problem itself isn't solved but I do have a workaround that works for me. I am unable to fill in the ebay login either automatically or manually in Firefox or Chromium using either Cinnamon or Mate desktops - It's as if the login fields aren't recognised as being f...

Automatic Login Field Filling Issue

This is a weird one... All of my logins autofill using both Cinnamon and Mate in both Firefox and Chromium - With two notable and differing exceptions. 1. Zoho Mail. I can fill the login fields manually but the browsers won't do it automatically. This is a nuisance as I need to fill the fields manua...

Re: LMDE 3 “Cindy” Cinnamon released!

Wonderful stuff - I found it on a US mirror a couple of days back, had a problem with Cinnamon running in software rendering mode on my old SIS graphics laptop which cured for installing Mate. Completed the migration, a few tweaks to make it more familiar and it's as smooth as LMDE2 which is high pr...

Re: Where is Mate ?

For a full Mate installation, you can install meta-package mate-desktop-environment-extras. If you want latest Mate 1.20, add stretch backports and then: sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install -t stretch-backports mate-desktop-environment-extras Then, it's easy to restore mint appearance with min...

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 t...

Re: Install MATE - Remove Cinnamon?

Best course of action is to back up your data then do a clean/fresh install of the version you want. There is only one version, LMDE3 comes as Cinnamon only. I will do a fresh install of LMDE3 and if there's a way of installing a Mint Mate desktop (I want it to look like Mint) then I will do so lea...

Re: LMDE3 - Install Complete MATE Desktop

We'll likely hear more about MATE options as part of the instructions for upgrading LMDE 2 to LMDE 3 (after the final release is done). I will be doing a fresh install of LMDE3 as soon as the Beta period is over. I would like to end up not just with the Mate desktop but with a Mint Mate desktop, I'...

Re: LMDE 3 “Cindy” Cinnamon – BETA Release

LMDE 3 Mate will be available when You install Mate on top of this Cinnamon release. ;-) there are lots of bits and pieces to gather and install... from the Debian repos, and that is not real simple (due to apt pinning I believe) ... and the Xapps being "preferred apps" core apps such as Caja, Plum...

Re: Kernel Update 4.9 briefly in Update Manager

I believe that Debian very recently had a major update to 9.5 perhaps something was put into the wrong repository.

Re: Linux Mint Debian Edition 3

I don't have any axe to grind re LMDE3 and Mate, my reasons are purely practical. Mate is lighter than Cinnamon on the older PCs I run and because I've been running Mate for a long time now I've become accustomed to it - I even use it on the newer PCs too I'm so accustomed to it. I would like some w...

Re: Linux Mint Debian Edition 3

As a long-time Mate user I'm also lamenting the loss of it as an official option. While I understand and accept the reasons for offering Cinnamon only, one of the appeals of LMDE to me is its reduced resource use compared to regular Mint; thus, I find Mate is a good companion for it. Cinnamon is ju...

Thanks for that. I'd also like to retain a Mint look if possible, I've been using Mint for so long now that I've grown familiar with the look.

Re: Linux Mint Debian Edition 3

I'd really like to run LMDE3 with Mate desktop.

Will Mate desktop and Mint-Meta-Debian-Mate be in synaptic ?

Or else will the Mate desktop be installable from the LMDE2 repositories ?

I'm not bothered about the version of Mate or the best way of installing it, I'd just like to run Mate.

I then downloaded EasyTAG from LMDE2 Software Manager which rather long-windedly did the job in LMDE2. I was able to delete existing music file icons and to replace them with custom icons and with pho...
