When I look in chrome://plugins/, I see Adobe Flash Player - Versie: 20.0.0.228 in /opt/google/chrome/PepperFlash/libpepflashplayer.so, I see the plugin i...

Re: mdm

Thank you for the replies.

But I have a functional system again now, by removing mdm completely and replacing it with gdm.
I don't want to edit config files, risking a black screen again at startup.

Don't feel like fixing something that works.

mdm

So the update to cinnamon 2.0 in mint 13 was a little messy ... I had a custom theme in mdm, that was apparently incompatible with the update package, so mdm was broken, with the message that "clouds.xx" was giving the problem. I followed clem's advice: go to a console via ctrl-alt-F1 sudo killall m...

Today i installed conky and it shows perfectly but when i click on the "Show desktop" button it disappears like any other window.

I've tried setting the own_window_type to norma,desktop,override, any of those work.


I can confirm this. Same problem here.

Re: HOWTO: Improve Font Rendering in LMDE

Nevermind ....
I copied Ikey's script again in a new file, executed the commands and everything is working now.

My fault, obviously :oops:

Re: HOWTO: Improve Font Rendering in LMDE

I have a script "fixfonts.sh" in my home directory. In a terminal, I entered the 2 commands in Ikey's first post: * chmod +x ./fixfonts.sh * ./fixfonts.sh The first command did nothing, the second gave me the errors "rule xxx: command not found". So I think I followed instructions, but no result. :r...

Re: Smallish Distro Needed.

I would go for puppy linux.
I've been using it on a PIII with 320 MB RAM, it's very light weight and usable.

Ubuntu distro's, even based on XFCE of fluxbox, will be sluggish.
