Re: Why a Debian distro?

From all the arguments I would think the question should be asked "Why an Ubuntu distro?" If Ubuntu is straying away from Debian and Mint is already breaking up the flow with update packs. Mint already has its own UI and seems not to be going in quite the same direction as Ubuntu, Why the ...

Re: LMDE a sleeping distro?

Re: LMDE a sleeping distro?

If LMDE a strolling distro I think its legs are broken. It would appear that the Mint team already bit off more than it can chew since it seems anytime there is trouble with the main version everything else gets left to rot. I have to agree with many of the previous post Mint hasn't delivered what I...

LMDE Update Pack 3, Mintupdate, Mintupdate-Debian

I am running LMDE 64, some reason it seems my machine is using mintUpdate 4.3.3 not mintupdate-debian. Wouldn't have even noticed had the blog not given the version number. I can't seem to install the Debian addition. Do I have to uninstall the one I have first, or is there something else I have to ...

Re: Low Disk Space error on Volumn root file system

I seemed to have had a similar problem, not sure how but it seemed I somehow ended up with 5GB of trash in my root account. I installed "Bleachbit" and went through all the sections first as regular user than as Root, till I found a large chunk to clean up. I have no idea how I got that mu...

Notifications and jobs

I installed KDE in my LMDE as I wanted to compare the desktops, but it keeps giving me a notice "there are 21 updates available" and two buttons later & reboot but hitting either one of them gets rid of this notification or installs updates. What are you suppose to do?
