Re: Unofficial LMDE KDE Live DVD: UP4 / 201208

multiarch afaik will only be default in debian with the upcoming debian 7. so eventually not even the next respins (if they come out fairly quick) will have multiarch enabled by default.

Re: Unofficial LMDE KDE Live DVD: UP4 / 201208

I've been experimenting with multiarch and left it very disappointed. Also, it doesn't seem to be a Mint policy as LMDE isn't offering it either and I do not wish to stray to much from the Mint path. Just make sure you mention this in release notes or such, as packages like skype and wine are movin...

Re: Unofficial LMDE KDE Live DVD: UP4 / 201208

Ah one more issue that needs correcting! The up4 x64 ISO doesn't have multiarch enabled. As a result, programs which rely on i386 binaries such as skype and wine cannot be installed until this is fixed. (A placeholder program for wine is installed instead which explains the process of activating mul...

Re: Unofficial LMDE KDE Live DVD: UP4 / 201208

Going to go test the 32 bit iso on another machine of mine to see if I can replicate the issue. There may be a problem with the current UP4 isos /etc/default/grub configurations as I just noted that they have the failsafes enabled such as fixed resolution 800x600, whereas the Linux Mint 13 KDE iso d...

Re: Unofficial LMDE KDE Live DVD: UP4 / 201208

@Insane1 If I understand correctly: you used DDM on a machine that has Nvidia drivers installed by sgfxi? DDM cannot detect other drivers then the ones available in the repositories (yet) so using DDM when you have Nvidia drivers installed through sgfxi is quite risky (as you found out). Please, ad...

About to start experimenting with the release, (Up4. Gonna see how the update to 5 goes). In either case, I ran into a strange issue. When I installed the system, the default boot mysteriously was configured identical to the safeboot option. As a result, the resolution was incredibly small, there we...

Using cinnamon here. Gnome 3, honestly. isn't that bad of an idea when executed this way (I'll admit the whole tablet interface fad, though, is a horrible idea.

Re: Unable to Install KDE on LMDE

I had the problem. I debugged it by going lower and lower until I found the dependency issue. kde-workspace-bin doesn't like the mate notification daemon. You need to uninstall it before KDE-full will install. Not quite sure what about it causes an issue, but as the poster above states, that's the p...

When assigning the root partition, the installer automatically put ext4 file system. Quite strange...it may actually be a bug in the installer...well...

Re: installing hardware accelerator

anyone out there ??? You may want to provide more information. Hardware specs such as CPU, Graphics card, sound card, and other info would be recommended. It also helps if we know exactly WHAT type of hardware acceleration you are going for. I'm going to assume you mean graphically, but it's possib...

Thanks, I'll try it ... You're welcome. Here's hoping that you get your printer working with those deb files.
