Re: LMDE2 Betsy installer window size problem

If you can get past the installer normal operation works fine at 1024x600. So far just an installer issue.However I would also test the welcome screen at vga and svga resolution.

BUG Re: LMDE2 Betsy installer window size problem

I have now replicated this issue on both a Dell Mini 9 and an eee pc 900. The installer menu does not work correctly when the y resolution is less than 768(a scroll down bar or a scaling window on the menu when the y resolution is less than 768 would fix this). This is NOT a debian bug, this is a Li...

Re: LMDE2 Betsy installer window size problem

Same problem I have a Dell Mini 9 with this issue, I worked around it by just hitting enter a bit, but 1024x600 is not so uncommon that the installer windows should be too big.

Ubuntu Mate...good bad or meh?

I think its a good thing. Having another Mate-ubuntu based distribution is a sign that direction is the right one. Having another set of eyes on the code I could imagine to be a good thing too.

Re: LMDE BREAKAGES - tracking TESTING - updated 15 May

THANK YOU! You saved my ass! I had the same problem. Im guessing for future reference to reinstall the nvidia drivers before I reboot after any new kernel install. Now that you've got the driver installed using dkms, it'll be rebuilt automatically on kernel upgrades. dkms = Dynamic Kernel Module Su...

Re: LMDE BREAKAGES - tracking TESTING - updated 15 May

Qapla'! It turned out the phrase that paid was sudo apt-get install nvidia-kernel-dkms nvidia-glx build-essential nvidia-settings nvidia-xconfig --reinstall I can't tell y'all how nice it is to be back up and running with the GUI. Note to self: Stop upgrading with sudo apt- fast dist-upgrade. Apt-g...

Re: Mate Desktop Environment - GNOME2 fork

I like Cinnamon but I still think its gonna take quite a bit longer to get that to where I want it. MATE is gnome 2.32 more or less which is more than good enough for me, and the more recent versions seem to be very stable. Gnome-shell is a mess, Gnome classic is just usable enough to get MATE and C...

Update Feedback

I like the look of cinnamon but its still too glitchy, which may be a ATI driver problem or something else. HOWEVER, Mate has incredibly leaped forward since its first iteration. The newest version of MATE seems very stable and very clean. I would like to see a customized version of MATE for Linux M...

Re: Flash 10.2 - actual hardware acceleration in 32 bit!

This is interesting because 10.2 with hardware acceleration for 64 bit is the default for Mint Debian, albeit a preview release.
