Permission Issues with Update Pack 5

After upgrading to UP5, I have some odd permission issues on my xfce4 install. For example, when I plug in my USB/MP3 player, it displays on the desktop but I get a "Mount Failed - Not Authorized" error when I try and open it in Thunar. And when I do a Menu > Logout, the "Shutdown&quo...

Re: UPDATE PACK 5 FEEDBACK THREAD

I guess I didn't read things carefully enough--I thought Update Pack 5 was ready to go... I had an XFCE install on an old 32-bit Dell laptop. No nVIDIA driver issues. Following the upgrade, I've got 46 packages held back. X doesn't start after rebooting. I know that's all hopelessly vague, but does ...

Re: "write error (disk full?)" after pack 4 update

/tmp /chromium-nightly/chrome-linux/chrome: write error (disk full?). Continue? (y/n/^C) n There's plenty of room available, so I'm not sure what the problem is... $ sudo df -h tmpfs 101M 36K 101M 1% /tmp Plenty? Really? :P Do not use /tmp on tmpfs if all you have is measly 512MiB of RAM. See /etc/...

[SOLVED] "write error (disk full?)" after pack 4 update

I'm running LMDE-XFCE and performed the pack 4 update 2 nights ago. I have a chromium-update script that worked fine before the dist-upgrade, but now fails during an unzip step. Here's the script: #!/bin/bash echo "*** Update script for Chromium nightly builds ***" echo "*** Written b...

Re: My Firefox Can't Say It's lower-case "m"'s

Strange. The only idea i have is, do you have the package ttf-mscorefont-installer installed and tried fonts of it? Well, I just installed ttf-mscorefonts-installer, started up Firefox, and voila! :D I didn't change any settings in Firefox, nor any system font settings... http://img543.imageshack.u...

[SOLVED] My Firefox Can't Say It's lower-case "m"'s

I installed the XFCE edition of the LMDE last night on my old Dell Inspiron lappie. Did a dist-upgrade with (seemingly) no problems. There's something odd going on in Firefox though. Every instance of the letter "m" is messed up (see attached screenshot): http://img338.imageshack.us/img338...

Re: Kernel panic on shutdown?

Based on this other thread ( http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=141&t=75848 ), I'm guessing this kernel is problematic? And I think I was right about the VirtualBox connection--when I ran a "rmmod -f vboxdrv", I did NOT get a panic at shutdown. I may try the liquorix kernel a...

I've been getting a kernel panic with this kernel at shutdown: http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=141&t=78154. I've used Liquorix kernels in the past; might be time to try it again!

Kernel panic on shutdown?

New LMDE install. Ran a complete upgrade. Installed Oracle version VirtualBox. (Among other things...) I'm now getting a kernel panic at every shutdown?: http://img26.imageshack.us/img26/5372/img7686f.jpg (Sorry--is there a better way to capture that verbiage??)

Re: Problems with new lmde install [bootloader config fail]

One of those unhelpful "me too" replies? During the bootloader configuration step I got a system beep . :evil: The progress bar continued to scan back-and-forth, but I had no disk activity lights--neither on the HDD or the thumb drive I'm installing from... This is a box with multiple dist...

LMDE 201012 Fails Starting Live Session

I just tried installing the new .iso from a thumb drive (created drive with unetbootin from 32bit .iso). I get several screens of boot verbiage (in verbose mode), and right after I see mention of 'gdm3' the screen goes to black. There is no disk activity light, and the keyboard is unresponsive. Some...
