Re: [SOLVED] How do I add indicator-appmenu to MATE?

glad to hear it's sorted then..

i never knew it's available on lmde too. i've ditched lmde because of its rolling release nature and poorly executed updates in favour of solus. i might have to give it another try eventually..

cheers,
bamdad

Re: [SOLVED] How do I add indicator-appmenu to MATE?

oh and don't forget that you'll have to log out and in again, doing a mate-panel --replace isnt't always enough..

Re: [SOLVED] How do I add indicator-appmenu to MATE?

hello, indeed i have, it was a dependency problem, but i'm not completely sure of what package(s) i had to install to fix it. try installing indicator-appmenu-gtk2 and/or indicator-application-gtk2 alongside mate-indicator-applet. i think the proper one should be a dependency, because mate-panel is ...

Re: [SOLVED] How do I add indicator-appmenu to MATE?

hello, sorry for resurrecting this thread, but i just downloaded the latest mint 13 rc, and i can in fact install the 'mate-indicator-applet' and 'indicator-applet-appmenu' packages and add the indicator appmenu to mate-panel, but all it says is 'no indicators'. is there a simple fix for this? thank...

Re: /etc/issue

um.. thanks, but i've already done my googling, and none of the posts explain why the file seems to be regenerated upon reboot. the agetty(8) and issue(5) manpages also didn't help much. my quick workaround was to delete the file completely, so now i'm sort of happy, but this probably isn't the best...

Re: LMDE disable rolling

To disable the 'rolling release' aspect of LMDE, In a terminal type : sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list <enter> Enter password when prompted. In the sources.list files, change every instance where a repro says 'testing' - change these to 'Squeeze' <save> Then, sudo apt-get update you, sir, are aweso...

Re: LMDE disable rolling

thank you all. apt-pinning _is_ what i was looking for. :) in the meantime, i'll have a look at the Isadora lxde version (i really don't like xfce).. maybe you're right. these 'low resource desktop' things were horrible a few years back, but maybe the Mint developers did their magic there, too. bamdad

Re: LMDE disable rolling

I don't know why, since the other distributions that Mint provides could match this in terms of kernel, that you would want to use a rolling release while not enabling the rolling release function okay, here's what i've experienced: Ubuntu 10.04 - works with a custom xorg.conf and KMS disabled.

[SOLVED] /etc/issue

greetings,

i have a simple question: what changes the /etc/issue file on every boot? i'd like to edit it, but i only see my changes if i kill a getty process (causing it to respawn) after editing it. if i reboot, it resets to the factory version. why?

(i'm using the new LMDE.)

thank you,
bamdad

Re: LMDE disable rolling

If you are afraid of kernel updates or other, why not just select the updates you want to do? You just uncheck and so refuse those which can be problematic :idea: Although maybe sometimes you can have some problems with the dependencies... i'm not afraid of kernel updates, not the maintenance ones,...

[SOLVED] LMDE disable rolling

hi everybody, (i'm not sure what the big red 'not a support forum' means, if i'm not supposed to ask anything here, just move/delete me. :) i've installed LMDE on my crappy old Thinkpad, and with a proper xorg.conf and some tweaking, it's the distro that woks best so far. now i know for a fact that ...
