Re: The unofficial LMDE KDE UP5 [UPDATE: 16/10/2012]

Just a quick note to let you all know that the new Full Circle magazine (issue #68) is out and has my review of LMDE KDE in it. You can grab it from: http://fullcirclemagazine.org.

Feel free to submit articles, we're always looking for new stuff. :)

Re: The unofficial LMDE KDE UP5 [UPDATE: 16/10/2012]

My system rebooted to a KDE login prompt. No GUI login. Uh oh! I then tried the previous version listed in the boot menu. That gave me a GUI login, but after that no display at all. For others that want to prevent the experience of installing "the other" OS :wink: : rm /etc/X11/xorg.conf Reboot, an...

Re: The unofficial LMDE KDE UP5 [UPDATE: 16/10/2012]

I had a horrible update experience last night/today. I left it downloading the 600+ updates that showed up and went to bed. This morning it was almost done installing, but had stopped at a question (which I had to answer). Did that, left for work, came back this evening and thought I'd better reboo...

The unofficial LMDE XFCE

Not being an official does kinda suck, but I suppose it's a blessing in that you can continue to be unofficial and independent. Personally I'd like to see a modern Debian distro (that's a rolling release) with the latest KDE packages. A rolling release is something that a lot of Ubuntu users would l...

Re: The unofficial LMDE KDE UP5 [UPDATE: 16/10/2012]

Can you add K/Ubuntu repos to it? I wouldn't do that: LMDE and LMDE KDE are Debian based, not Ubuntu based. How about PPAs? They won't work (as far as I know) for the same reason as above. How does it differ from Kubuntu? Other than that Kubuntu is Ubuntu based and LMDE KDE is Debian based? Can you...

Re: The unofficial LMDE KDE UP5 [UPDATE: 16/10/2012]

Your very last piece of advice did the trick. For some reason there were already a couple of files in the /usershares folder. I deleted them and now folders share fine. I can only assume they were bad/corrupt files and recreating them fixed things. Thanks! Thank goodness, now I can finally sleep......

Re: The unofficial LMDE KDE UP5 [UPDATE: 16/10/2012]

I'm now out of ideas :( Well, just one then: open that usershares directory for everybody and see what happens: sudo chmod 1777 /var/lib/samba/usershares/ and I found that not all I said was correct: the usershares directory group is NOT users, but sambashare...but you were already in sambashare......

Another try... First, check if you are in the users group! If not, add yourself to the users group, if you are, try this: sudo nano /etc/samba/smb.conf Make sure the following is in the [global] section: usershare allow guests = Yes usershare max shares = 100 usershare owner only = False Create use...

Re: The unofficial LMDE KDE UP5 [UPDATE: 16/10/2012]

Weird . The first line (the copy command) worked fine. Second line (first testparm) gave the error: bash: /etc/samba/smb.conf: Permission denied ... and I was using sudo. Copy/pasted your commands right into Konsole. :? Ok, just forget sudo, but login as su and start from the first testparm. Sorry,...

Re: The unofficial LMDE KDE UP5 [UPDATE: 16/10/2012]

I noticed a CPU usage jump of Xorg as well when I open a new tab in chromium, but it hardly lasts a second. Maybe it's supposed to do that and it depends on the system's hardware configuration (type cpu, motherboard, just guessing). The groups for your user look correct to me. You could try this: C...

Re: The unofficial LMDE KDE UP5 [UPDATE: 16/10/2012]

I've installed Mint DE KDE UP5 on my desktop machine (replacing my now bloated Kubuntu 12.04>12.10) but I'm getting unusually high CPU readings from Xorg . It normally sits around 1 or 2%, but when I do anything it will jump to anything from 10-25% (for a few seconds) then drop again. It's not a ma...

Re: The unofficial LMDE KDE UP5 [UPDATE: 16/10/2012]

i believe that the issue here is lack of space in the hdd: 4GB is short to install lmde-kde, i think. (i just check my VM with a vanilla install and the .vdi is 4.9GB) Sweet Jesus. That's a LOT! But would certainly explain things. :lol: Is there an easy way to do a custom install? That way I could ...

I'm trying to install LMDE KDE UP5 on my old EEE PC 701 (I'm experimenting!), but it keeps stalling when installing ktorrent.mo . I've tried downloading the ISO several times, so it can't be a corrupt ISO file. Tried booting both normal and compatibility modes too. Any ideas? I had something like t...

Brushed Metal Wallpapers (Mint 10 style)

I love Mint, but I wasn't keen on the wallpapers that came with Mint 10, so I've created a couple of my own. It looks like this (Mint 10 RC): http://d.imagehost.org/0328/BrushedMint_preview.jpg Brushed Mint : http://b.imagehost.org/t/0763/BrushedMint4.jpg http://d.imagehost.org/t/0889/BrushedMint3.j...
