Re: [Unresolved] LM13 and LMDE - Useless auto update manager

I was experiencing exactly the same problem as first poster "Trapper" for a while on my LMDE machines. With the frequent Java updates nowadays, it was actually my wife who asked me to resolve the update notifier issue. I can confirm that... sudo apt-get install update-notifier-common anacr...

If you are logging in and out different users during the same session, an occasional hiccup may still happen. A more reliable location to place mount -a is in: /etc/mdm/PostLogin/Default /etc/gdm3/PostLogin/Default /etc/kdm/PostLogin/Default /etc/lightdm/PostLogin/Default /etc/xdm/PostLogin/Default ...

Dear Vincent,
By your request, I edited my original posting to further specify what it is about.

Re: What are your LMDE XFCE customizations ???

@zerozero
Thanks for the additional info concerning multiarch.

To answer your question: No, this thread only concerns customizations of current official LMDE XFCE releases.
It has not necessarily anything to do with any unofficial LMDE XFCE releases.

ll alias

Many distros offer by standard "ll" as an alias for "ls -al"
You can get it in LMDE for once and all by typing:

Code: Select all

sudo sh -c "echo 'alias ll=\"ls -al\"' >> /etc/bash.bashrc"
