Re: MDM on a pure debian system

If you get the blank screen after typing your password at the greeter screen, that's a known issue (workaround is inside). I was getting the blank screen after login. Downloaded the latest versions of mdm and themes. Tried them as such, they did not work. Implemented the solution suggested (comment...

Re: MDM on a pure debian system

I know the mdm in debian is totally different from what is mint has :-) I download the mdm deb from mint and install it using dpkg. So, installing it is not an issue at all. As I said, I get a blank screen. The system was working before the updates from a week or so.

MDM on a pure debian system

I second this. Any machine bought even 5 years back can boot off a usb drive. So, unless you have an older machine, try avoiding the burning of iso's to cd's :-)

Why bother? Just install debian testing plus sid. You should be fine with proper tweaking of the pinning :-)

Have you looked at the permissions on that particular file? That might be the reason for the message. If it is not world readable, then you have a problem.

Re: Boot font change

Try this

Code: Select all

sudo dpkg-reconfigure console-setup


On the third screen, select

Code: Select all

Do not change the boot/keyboard


This prevents the boot font from changing midway.

Re: Root partition is suddenly running out of space

Where is the list of channels in LMDE? I presume that by channel you mean the entries in the sources.list. This file is in /etc/apt. You can use sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list and remove the unwanted entries. After I delete the channel, how do I clean the system of all its packages? Open a termin...

Are you sure you are running LMDE UP5? It seems like you are tracking debian testing/sid/exp probably with apt-pinning. Sorry, I did not mention that.

Re: Delete all files - *.txt from a directory and sub direct

The solution will give you trouble when there are files with space in their names. It is also better to use xargs rather than exec. To get round that problem use the following command :

Code: Select all

find dirname -name "*.txt" -print0 | xargs -0 rm
