That's what I thought. Thanks for the reply.

LMDE upgrade path

I don't know if this question has been asked. If so, sorry, couldn't find the answer.

I use Mint Julia. Is there an upgrade path from Julia to LMDE or do I need to do a fresh install?

Re: Gnome weirdness

From time to time, and not really that often, when I log into my session in Mint 10 Main Edition I get a different desktop environment that I'm not familiar with. It seems everything is a little bigger and the icons in the panel are different. Here's a snapshot of what the weird desktop looks like....

Re: Broadcom wireless driver

I found the actual problem. I used a DWA-160 wireless stick for testing. The driver made an automated blacklist entry.

(Solved) Broadcom wireless driver

I have a Broadcom 4312 wireless card in my Dell laptop. If I boot to sdc, crunchbacg linux test, and come back to Mint 10 on sda my wireless doesn't work. I can wait a few hours and it'll mysteriously start working. Once it's working I can reboot to this drive and my wireless works. I checked my har...

Re: Conky wireless problem

so the issue is in syntax of that line and not in "eth1" edit: the wireless_link_qual_perc works if you try? Because according to conky objects that syntax seems right http://conky.sourceforge.net/variables.html edit2: try this: Signal:${alignr}${wireless_link_bar 8,60 eth1} and then if it works (h...

The variable ${wireless_link_bar eth1} fails, I get nothing. Is it because my wireless is eth1 and not wlan0? If so can I change it to wlan0?

Re: Conky wireless problem

Wait a second... ${execp ~/.Conky/conkynetwork.sh} No wonder your Conky doesn't seem to show anything...you need a script called "conkynetwork.sh" and it needs to be placed in a folder called ~/.Conky. You'll have to ask the original author for this script, or see if it is available from the source...

Re: Conky wireless problem

It looks like you aren't actively connected to any network at the moment...perhaps try connecting first, and see if Conky shows any network traffic after that? I'm connected to my home network, here's the output from sudo iwconfig. Why is it different? lo no wireless extensions. eth0 no wireless ex...

Conky wireless problem

I've tried adding a few conky wireless variables but they won't work, I get zero or unk. Is it because my wireless is eth1 and not wlan1? If so, how can I change it? I've tried searching but I didn't find any solutions.
