Re: LMDE to Sid

HI GeneC,

testing it is then! Suppose I'll stick it in a kemu session and see how it fares for a couple of weeks. Will do a dd tonight and take it from there.

Many thanks for all your help!

[SOLVED] - LMDE to Sid

Hi, 'cos I'm running KDE I'd like to move to Sid instead of LMDE seeing that my DE of choice is not supported. I have a couple of questions about my proposed move. 1. Simply enabling a Sid repo in my sources.list does not seem to suffice as the LMDE repo is still scanned. Do I have to uninstall mint...

Re: KDE and UP8

Thank you.

I am aware of SolydK. However, having gone through so much pain I am loathed to give up a perfectly good system which over the years has been built up to suit my exact needs. Or are they similar enough to just copy over my existing /etc/ to a SolydK install?

Hm, me wonders...

KDE and UP8

Uff, that was quite some ride! To get KDE running under UP7 was funky enough but what UP8 took five years off my life ;) I had to switch between debian stable, testing und UP8 repos to get everything going again. What surprised me most was that during the original UP8 upgrade it attempted to remove ...

Re: kde-full breakages

Nice one monsta :)

Many thanks for the explanation and what to do about it.

EDIT:

I enabled the testing repo from Debian and installed KDE 4.11. The only hiccup was kdenetwork including kopete but as I'm using psi I didn't have to go to the unstable repos.

kde-full breakages [SOLVED]

Hi, I've installed kde-full, have removed previous instances of ~/.kde* and fired up KDM. Upon successful login KDE starts but the systray is broken. Icons are layered above each other. I then moved the main taskbar to the left vertical side of the monitor and the systray icons go in single file reg...

Thanks very much for your reply. Did the reinstall as you suggested but no improvement. I'm still getting the same error message. The problem occurs on my Thinkpad T61 only - the update went through fine on my desktop (using the http://tux.rainside.sk/ mirror). Will experiment further and am always ...

Re: veetle woes

Update: I started FF from CLI to see whether I'd get any further and indeed saw a message about libvdpau pop up. I reverted back to nvidia, made sure libvdpau1 was installed (which it was), created a new xorg.conf and fired FF up again. Alas, veetle still hangs but now I don't get any messages on th...

Re: LMDE KDE

Damn, I just recently installed LMDE and put a KDE on it but didn't keep any notes (do I ever!). I do remember it being a bit tricky having to first install the packages apt was moaning about. But don't be fooled, you can install KDE and it is all there - I didn't fiddle with my sources.list :)

Re: Is this war, with privilege? Not on MY comp!!!

Anybody interested in solving this at all or is it going to be a ranting session.

Not that I mind the latter but I wouldn't want no further part in it.

Re: need to install LMDE

Hi,

I hope you are aware that LMDE follows the rolling relase model and that as such there are no different versions. I suggest googling "rolling release distro" in case this doesn't answer your question fully.

Hi blacksilva,

that is very kind of you, thank you very much!

A simple question: is there any point trying a new ROM if 2.3 is going to come out for my phone soonish?
