Re: LMDE Simplicity

I also wanted to chime in with thanks and congratulations for the 3D version of this wallpaper. It looks stupendous on my E17 desktop using the Black Diamond E17 theme (with the background changed to LMDE_SIMPLIXCITY_3D, of course), the Black Diamond GTK2 theme (slightly edited to make the window ba...

Re: Hadrets PPA breaks mintUpdate

What my (fairly limited) testing shows is that it's not Hadret's PPA that causes my mintUpdate to fail, but the Debian experimental repository (upon which Hadret's experimental PPA depends). I can enable Sid repositories and Hadret's unstable repo and Mint update works fine. As soon as I activate th...

Re: Recent Update Makes LMDE Gnome Desktop...

Glad to know I'm not a lone freak of nature.... I had the same thing happen, but I just installed Openbox and went on my merry way while waiting to see if this would turn out to be a known issue and if a resolution would be discovered. For the record, I also recall replacing a config file-- iIrc, th...

Re: Things I would like to see in future Mints

I still would like to see AWN applets of force-quit and MintMenu but that's mostly (give or take a bit) an issue with AWN. I just started using AWN today, and these are the only two applets that I have to keep a minimal panel for. I really want these as AWN applets as well. I can see that force-qui...

Re: Black screen during boot up!

Does the black screen occur when X/gdm is supposed to start (and before that, you have regular console output)? If so, you may be experiencing the same issue quite a few of us have been having: Monitor OUT OF SYNC . The tips in that thread enabled me to get Mint 8 running fine (it's where I'm typing...

Re: Monitor OUT OF SYNC

Thank you, fubar and Cierpliwy-- your solutions worked for me as well (though the install was just a little corner of hell, on the giant desktop-- but it got done). I suspect that the problem may lie in old monitors that don't do DDS (mine doesn't), possibly in combination with AGP graphics (nVidia ...

Re: LiveCD (Main) won't boot into X...

Thank you, mikeyb-- it did help, and I am now posting this from a beautiful Linux Mint 8 install. I had seen that thread, but I, like you, thought that it was a similar but different issue, because I wasn't getting an actual error (even in the console I could see on the other ttys). But the tips giv...

LiveCD (Main) won't boot into X... SOLVED!

This is driving me a bit crazy. I had Gloria installed and upgraded to Helena inline, but felt that the system wasn't quite as "clean" as I like it (though everything was working), so I attempted to boot from the Helena LiveCD to reinstall. The CD actually does boot-- I'm logged in on all other (tex...
