Mint 18 XFCE vs. Mint 18 Mate

Hello, all, The desktop I'm presently using is a nine year-old HP Pavilion a6113w: 1.6 GHz dual core processor, 2 GB ram. I'm triple-booting Linux Mint 18 Mate, Ubuntu 14.04 Unity, and Windows 8.1. (I need Windows for school and I still can't make up my mind on Unity and Mate). By far, Windows runs ...

Setting up Q4Wine

Hello all,

I'm attempting to get Q4Wine up and running and I suppose I need to create a /usr/lib/wine folder or file. Right now, none exists on my Linux Mint 13 Maya/Mate.

What command might I use to accomplish that with commandline?

Any help is appreciated. Thanks

I'm using LightMint17-3 right now (I just installed Enlightment-17 and am really enjoying it). And it updates and apt works; it's obviously still being supported.

While I can't say I'm impressed with it, I think I'll install it anyway and see if I can install a Mate desktop. Thanks to administrollaattori and all other contributors f...

I'm still floundering around here. Does anyone know the username and password for the LightMint17-3.iso? "lightmint" for LightMint iceWM doesn't work.

Re: Create mini iso installer

So that would be a Debian install; not LMDE, right?

I'm downloading a a Mint 17.2 iso now and I'll see if I can just delete some files so it'll fit on a one GB flash drive. I'm under the impression that all I need is the base system and grub and then get the rest online.

BUMP Hello, all. The computer in my signature went out a week ago. I think the problem might be the integrated graphics card. And this couldn't have happened at a worse time. Oh, well.

Re: How to replace Gnome 3.4 Screensaver with Xscreensaver

I haven't had any luck with getting xscreensaver to use Pictures folder slideshow. Nevertheless, the screensaver app that I've found to work as good as the Gnome 2 screensaver (and just as easily) is the Mate Screensaver (see screenshot).

<SOLVED> Time and Date on LMDE won't open

The time on a fresh install of LMDE is incorrect. When I go to Menu>Administration>Time and Date and click on the padlock icon "click to make changes," nothing happens.

How do I change the time to the correct time?

As always, any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
