Re: Black screen when booting LMDE 201204 with Intel graphic

You could try Ctrl-Alt-Delete instead. What I also noticed was that the laptop tried to display via external monitor. Although none was connected! :roll:
So maybe you could try connecting an external monitor for installation.

Re: intel3000 video only display on external monitor

I got the same problem on my Thinkpad L420 with Intel HD3000 onboard graphics.

Re: Install LMDE from CD (not DVD) drive how?

As far as I know, no CD version exists for LMDE. But if your laptop has USB capability, you can try installing it via USB pen drive with unetbootin.

Re: Black screen when booting LMDE live-DVD

Well, maybe my initial post was a bit too long so nobody read the whole text. ;-) This should answer your questions: Okay, so here is what I've tried so far: - Reloaded and burnt the *.iso. Did a MD5sum check before and verified the DVD. - Unplugged screen two from docking station - Used just the la...

Black screen when booting LMDE live-DVD

Hi guys. :) First of all: I'm pretty much new to linux in general so I'm sorry when I forget some essential details in my problem description. My problem is that while trying to install LMDE 201204 MATE/Cinnamon 64 bit the screen turns black so I can't go on. I use a Thinkpad L420 laptop (screen1) w...

Re: Nautilus doesn't show tar.gz

Am I correct? No, it was like I said: I started my computer and could see the files on my desktop. I already tried a restart the day before but it didn't help then. The files were where they were supposed to be (it's not that difficult to find the ~/Desktop folder :wink: ). Never had that problem a...

Re: Linux Mint 8 "Helena" released!

I'm (still) new to Linux and like Mint 7 Gloria a lot beacause it works and looks really professional. That's why I tried out Mint 8 Helena as it came out and I honestly wasn't pleased. Why the "hard to configure" GRub 2? And why are the grub menu and the login screen so ugly? As I understand it, Li...

Re: thumbs down for suspend / hibernate

I totally support that as I am experiencing the same problems on my laptop. I'm using linux (Mint 7 main) for the first time in my life and I'm positively surprised about how good it works. But as a laptop user, power management is a very important issue. I even think that's the only problem that ke...

Nautilus doesn't show tar.gz

Hello guys, Today I installed my first Linux OS and thus have a lot of questions. :) One is: When I download a tar.gz file to my desktop, why doesn't it show on the desktop or in nautilus? I am able to see it in the terminal. And I can see the file in nautilus, when I "open as root". I can see why i...
