Re: (Solved) Tap to click on touchpad no longer works (Asus,

Write a script:

Code: Select all

#!/bin/bash
synclient tapbutton1=1


Add to start up programs... How, depends on your Desktop Environment.

Re: Automatic Wallpaper Changer

I am using Variety wallpaper changer in cinnamon 1.8 on Manjaro, not on LMDE anymore. You have to add the following line to ~/.config/variety/scripts/set_wallpaper: gsettings set org.cinnamon.background picture-uri “file://$1″ 2> /dev/null for it to work, but in my opinion it is the best out there. ...

Re: Has anyone gotten automatic wallpaper changing to work

It is just cairo-dock with clock and workspace switcher detached and random wallpaper. Very easy to do.

Can't remember what the cinnamon theme was, but the bar is switched from bottom to top in Cinnamon settings.

No Arch based, Arch with a better installer, really could not be bothered with the "Arch Way" :)

Yup, yup and no, not stuck on gallium - I have it working in Manjaro (see edit to my first post), off work with a back injury, needed to get it running to play half-life2, or day time TV would have driven me insane :)

Re: Touchpad Not Working?

Stab in the dark, boot off a live cd, does it work from there? (or does it work in windows if dual boot?).

I would have expected it to show up in lsusb, weird!

Re: LMDE on Apple Mac?

Don't know anything about mac, but are you getting a grub screen with that countdown? If so press 'e' to edit the grub command line and add noapic there.

Re: Can't enter password after waking the computer from slee

Try creating another user, this will show if it is a problem with your copied home directory.

Turn off the lock screen will also solve the problem, it is in the gnome-control-center > Brightness & lock section.

Re: Linux kernel 3.2.33 LTS

Why not try the Liquorix kernel? Currently on 3.6.x, if you don't like it or it cause problems, just boot to previous kernel in grub and uninstall with synaptic.

http://liquorix.net/

I (and many others) have been using for months with no problems.

Re: LMDE + ATI + OpenGL = problem

3d support on the open source driver is poor, you need the proprietary AMD driver. They work for Lizbeth, they don't work for me - HD5400. I suggest using clonezilla before trying to install.

Re: Getting fglrx to work on sid/liquorix

Same here :), but this spin-off has a graphical installer of sorts (and I had a spare 20gb partition). I won't say it was easy, I must of tried 3 times, eventually got there with the beta installer. It (Arch) is a bit rough around the edges, needs a decent synaptic type application (pacman-gui is cr...

Re: Getting fglrx to work on sid/liquorix

Might try that later, compiling current liquorix kernel for Arch ATM (I really like Manjaro, it feels so snappy compared to LMDE, perhaps I need a fresh install to compare). Yeh, I had a panel less gnome2 for a while it wasn't to bad, I just renamed gnome-panel to gnome-panel-old.

Before I used Cinnamon, I used to use just compiz as my dm, think I will dig out my old config files and play. Never liked gnome2 but I do like cinnamon and gnome 3 :-)

Re: Getting fglrx to work on sid/liquorix

Yes, that is why I installed Manjaro, fglrx was just not going to work for me in Sid, but I saw good reports that it was working in Arch. I am just familiarizing myself with Arch (never used it before), before I take the plunge and install XFCE. Only problem is I will be stuck on XFCE if it works (n...

Re: Getting fglrx to work on sid/liquorix

Yup, did everything by the book, would not work, or would only give me fallback.

I think (from all the Googling I did) that you are just lucky! :)
