Re: Bootloader Default OS question

You can also search Synaptic Package Manager for startupmanager. Install that and choose your default boot OS from the drop down menu.

Re: preparing for ubuntu -> LMDE transition

I have a separate /HOME partition and switched from Ubuntu to LMDE. All I did was install LMDE64 to my previous Ubuntu / partition which left my /HOME partition untouched. Then I went back and reinstalled what programs I needed. It took all of 15 min. The 230+ updates took most of the time, but that...

Re: Are you glad you switched from mint release to LMDE ? ..

It's a very individual thing. I ran Ubuntu since 7.04 and loved it. I used several Mint versions and REALLY loved those. For an "out of the box" working distro..Mint can't be beat. If you like to tinker with an OS (I do), then LMDE is an awesome choice. I just switched from Ubuntu to LMDE64, a few d...

Re: Google Earth on LMDE 64 bit?

It installed fine using the Software Center version. Runs fine in my LMDE64 install.

Re: Goodbye Ubuntu...hello LMDE

Since I just installed 3 days ago, I decided to wipe my install and go with 64 bit. I had some problems with flash when I tried Ubuntu 10.04 64 bit, but LMDE 64 is working flawlessly. Excellent!

Re: Goodbye Ubuntu...hello LMDE

Greetings!!! I "was" one of the Alpha testers & just said my goodbyes to the Ubuntu-testing community about a week ago. Agreed on the direction that Unity is taking Ubuntu & was looking for another place to go......so here I am. I predict that we won't be the only ex-ubuntu users in the next couple...

Goodbye Ubuntu...hello LMDE

Greetings, After using Ubuntu since 7.04, I've decided to leave that distro behind. I don't like the direction that they're taking with Unity. It seems that the freedom of choice is gone. I've used Mint off an on over the years and LOVE the fact that Clem decided to base Mint on Debian and NOT havin...
