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 ...

Re: Linux Mint Debian Edition 3

Exactly my point, Mate wasn't even mentioned, nor were any Desktop options.

https://blog.linuxmint.com/?p=3590 To all those who are unhappy with the decision to make Cinnamon the default and wish the option to install Mate instead wasn't fraught with uncertainty, I refer them to the above blog. This time I will abstain from putting my, some would call prejudiced, interpreta...

Re: Linux Mint Debian Edition 3

I venture that it's the latest in Debian lmde3 fans would be more interested in and if this topic is any indication there aren't too many "Cinnamon fans" among them. :)

How many of these would be level 4 & 5 updates that users wouldn't risk, the new kernel update would be one I'm sure.

Re: Linux Mint Debian Edition 3

Unless the devs discard all that they have done till now, if they have been working on lmde3 which i doubt, and begin afresh with the latest release of Debian, lmde3 will already be obsolete by then.. I've stopped holding my breath.

Re: Is it the end for LMDE?

Yep it's dead..the commercial necessities of the ubuntu version killed it. Just look at how long it is since Debian 9..they don't any time for it, they can't afford it not for a small bunch of enthusiasts like me with affectations of nerdiness.:(lol)And if there ever is a LMDE 3, i hope they won't t...

Yay!

Re: Display ordinal indicators after date.

The script had a bug, noticed it on the first of March when it began lisping. Fixed it, #!/bin/bash Odin() { case `date +%d` in ?1|21|31) echo "st" ;; ?2|22) echo "nd" ;; ?3|23) echo "rd" ;; *) echo "th" ;; esac } date "+%a, %e`Odin` %b, %Y" Edit: My bad, the bug was still there, noticed it today wh...

Display ordinal indicators after date.

Found this neat little script that i put to use in my conky.conf in lieu of the conky <time> variable.. Sorry if it's nothing new for most of you but i am impressed enough by it's elegant simplicity to risk adding more clutter to the forum. :wink: #!/bin/sh DaySuffix() { case `date +%d` in 1|21|31) ...

Any possibility of a LMDE 3 Beta release before Stretch?

I am assuming that the development of LMDE 3 runs parallel with the development of Stretch based on their daily builds and does not begin, nor is dependent entirely on the final release of Debian Stretch. If so is a Beta feasible? Just so users can try it on various hardware/VMs, get a taste of it, ...
