In Cindy installer, in "User info" dialog, if you try to enter a hostname with upper case letters, you'll get an alert saying "The hostname must be lower case".

lightdm login screen doesn't accept usernames with dots

Hi all, I'm trying a LDME 3 Cindy installation in a VirtualBox machine, and found out I can't pass graphical login with usernames with dots. Such users are not shown in the login screen user list. If I login with another user (without dots) and enable manual login via lightdm-settings , then reboot,...

Thunderbird hangs / freezes after update to 60.3.0-1~deb8u1

Hi all, In Nov 14th, 2018, my Thunderbird was updated from 52.9.1-1~deb8u1 to 60.3.0-1~deb8u1. Since then, I've experienced some freezes. I couldn't determine 100% what causes it, but it seems related to background stuff like updating messages or compacting folders. I tried restarting in safe mode, ...

Re: mate-terminal sometimes crashes with segfault in libgtk-3 when right-clicked

At first I thought it was this bug I think it's important to highlight that, unlike the bug reports, my X server doesn't crash. Only mate-terminal. It happened again today, and I'm puzzled to notice that the error message (in /var/log/messages) points to a different library: Aug 11 12:27:20 <Host> ...

mate-terminal sometimes crashes with segfault in libgtk-3 when right-clicked

Hi all, I observed some crashes in mate-terminal, and they are not consistent. Until I can tell what triggers the problem, I'll blame bad luck on it. The crashes usually occur when I select text in the terminal screen, then right-click into the terminal right away to copy such text. It seems to depe...

Re: Notebook speakers stopped working after installing LMDE

Hi, Seeley, Problem solved. I had already played with pavucontrol. Though it wasn't installed, it was accessible by right-clicking the audio icon. Maybe it was only a non-funcional frontend (if so, it's a bug). I installed pavucontrol and unchecked "mark as secondary" (dunno if this is the correct o...

But I have a problem: the notebook speakers make no sound at all. The phone jack output is OK, as well as the internal microphone and inpu...

Re: Cinnamon fails to load session after upgrade to 2.0.14+l

I installed Mate and it's running flawlessly for over a month now. So I guess nothing is broken outside Cinnamon. But purging Cinnamon, reset all its settings in GSettings and reinstalling again from scratch makes no difference. So I just defaulted to Mate and gave up on Cinnamon.

Re: Mate freezes - maybe related to psmouse or smartscroll

I've switched to MDM and kernel 3.x for a good while now. I don't know if any of these fixed the issue, but it's been also a good while it doesn't happen. Unfortunately, I can't relate one thing to the other - just recommend said update.

"MDM", "menu" and "face" were some I tried to search and got a warning saying these words were ignored for being too common.

Is the face browser gone, or is there something I can still do? MDM itself was upgraded from 1.0.8+lmde to 1.2.5+lmde. Thanks, Emerson My last update history...
