Re: LMDE BREAKAGES - read here first - Update 12 july 2011

just a thank you to zerozero for the heads up on the latest nvidia issue being fixed. I did the 'backport' option and used old packages. Today I updated the several hundred meg, with a little trepidation, and was pleasently surprized to find after a "full" reboot (shutdown, startup, I personally hat...

Re: LMDE BREAKAGES - read here first - Update 2 july 2011

Just a note to anyone who read my above post on thanking zerozero , I did the above, it went into gui, no driver, so I thought that was the way it would be , I was wrong, after a full day I shut down and saw a quick 'glimmer' of the nvidia logo, thinking this strange I rebooted, and what should I fi...

I'm curious what type of 'nothing but trouble' you experienced with smxi, and in what areas. Hi h2, mid febuary I came to #smxi with an issue of my nvidia 8200 not installing (flashing cursor of death), I honestly don't know how many installs I did testing it out and giving you feedback, http://tec...

FireFox 5 ?? , yesterday on irc someone asked what the update for firefox was all about and why did it say '5'. We were perplexed as none of us had this popup in ff. Today I opened firefox and there was a popup stating that ff should be updated to ff5. I have no intentions of doing this, as I believ...

Re: gmplayer , where has it gone, and how to get it back.

Thanks for the reply remoulder, an fyi , mplayer is not obsolete, it's going strong and is the default video and sound player in most linux distrobutions, you would be amazed how many apps are wrappers to it (gnome-mplayer being one). As to compiling mplayer with the --gui switch which allows you to...

gmplayer , where has it gone, and how to get it back.

I've noticed in the last 2 releases of Mint Main, that gmplayer is missing. mplayer works fine, but it wasn't compiled with gui support. This is very frustrating to me as I use gmplayer a lot. I am currently running lmde and very happy with it. Just wondering if anyone out there knows how to get gmp...

Thank you kmb42vt for the 'extra' stuff on installing a nvidia, though I've been using linux for over 10years now, I'm getting lazy in my old age and tend to not bother with extra stuff like that.

SOLVED, talking to a fellow lmde user on #linuxmint-debian , he twigged at my driver, he suggested I download the latest, it's 270 now, so I downloaded and installed the NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-270.41.06.run , and bobs your uncle, works a treat. Looks as if the 260 has an incompatibility issue with the ...

nvidia 8400 here, did my last upgrade on 16th May, when I rebooted it went to tty. Tried with vesa in xorg.conf , works but 640x480 isn't quiet what I'd like for a 22inch monitor.

Re: LMDE needs a codename

Just looking at this thread and seeing the argument about this being a rolling release, so why bother with code names. My $0.02 says sure it is rolling, but we are working on Spin 3 now , and I myself like the 'fuzzy' feeling you get from names. 3 just doesn't do it for me. I'm really no authority o...
