Macs use GPT instead of MBR. Search for a way to make your external hard drive use GPT.

Mint 13 MDM login window not type username{Solved}

In Mint 13 can I configure the login window to work like it did in previous versions, so I only have to select my name and then type my password.

If I can't when will this be added in MDM.

Re: Software Manager slow to install software - advice?

Delete all the .debs in /var/cache/apt/archives and /var/cache/apt/archives/partial

In terminal:

Code: Select all

cd /var/cache/apt/archives/
sudo rm *.deb
cd partial/
sudo rm *.deb
Then update your repository information from terminal:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get update

After doing this see if your problem is fixed.

Re: Will upgrading to Gnome 2.32.x from 2.30.2 alter my syst

You should stay with 2.30.2. There is very little difference between 2.30.2 and 2.32.x and you would get little benefit from upgrading.

Re: How to change repos to debian stable

Why do you want to change repos from Testing to Stable? Testing packages are newer but they are still stable enough for general use.

If you're sure you want to do this edit the file /etc/apt/sources.list, and replace the testing repository addresses with stable repository addresses.
