Slower boot time on LMDE 4 than on LMDE 3 after upgrade

So I just upgraded to LMDE 4 using the upgrade instructions here. Everything seems to have worked perfectly. https://community.linuxmint.com/tutorial/view/2475 I have one question. It seems to take significantly longer (4 to 5 seconds longer) to boot LMDE 4 than it did to boot LMDE 3. It it not a hu...

Re: DOSEMU and LMDE 4

Also, for the DOS-based ERP software… I can run it under DOSEMU on Linux in a VM under Hyper-V. My clients can then run VcXsrv on their Windows machines and launch their DOS app from a shortcut on their desktop. They use PLINK (comes with PuTTY and VcXsrv) to SSH into the Linux box, launch DOSEMU an...

Re: DOSEMU and LMDE 4

Rather than use an unsupported package that was purposely removed by the Debian team because it caused regressions, would using a different DOS emulator package be an option? Or perhaps FreeDOS in a VM? EDIT: More info By default DOSEMU does use FreeDOS. I have it running my old copy of MS-DOS 6.22...

Re: DOSEMU and LMDE 4

Yes, version 1.4.0.7+20130105+b028d3f-2+b1 is in the Sid repos. try it. I am not really sure how to install a package from Sid in Buster. Do I just download the DEB package? Or is there a way to add the repo? BTW: despite common lore Sid seems to be pretty stable, I use it daily on a couple machine...

DOSEMU and LMDE 4

I recently installed Buster in a VM only to find out that it doesn’t have a package for the venerable DOSEMU. I use DOSEMU for running old applications (like WordPerfect 5.1, etc) for amusement but I also have a business critical use for it. One of our clients runs an old DOS-based ERP system. Anywa...

Re: Boot Messages

Boot Messages

I just recently (well, a few months ago) installed LMDE on my new-to-me 4th generation X1 Carbon. Pretty much everything works (still trying to figure out the fingerprint sensor). But otherwise everything works very well. However I get the following messages that appear at boot up. I would like to g...

Re: Advantage of Ubuntu over Debian as a package base for Mint?

It is possible that I have something of an irrational dislike for Ubuntu. Initially I liked it a lot (back in the 8.x days). It was polished and professional. It was what got me off OpenSuSE back then. But I liked it less and less when they forced Unity down our throats and insisted on doing their o...

Stay on TTY1 after boot (X11 still running on TTY7)

Is there some way to make LMDE (or regular Debian for that matter) not switch over to virtual console 7 when booting up? I know I can switch over to TTY1 with Ctrl+Alt+F1 and back again with Ctrl+Alt+F7. And I would still like X11 (Wayland?) to start and for it to be there on TTY7 waiting there for ...

Re: LMDE 4

Same here. Good to see. I have Debian 10 with Cinnamon on a laptop right now and it works great. LMDE4 should be great as well. I have thought about doing that a few times (going with vanilla Debian plus Cinnamon) but I think that LMDE comes with a bit more “polish” that I might otherwise be missin...

Just an FYI.... I am having exactly the same problem with a clean/fresh installation of LMDE Cindy on a 4th Gen X1 Carbon.

Re: Why not go directly with Debian?

Wow, I didn't know the outdated software compared to debian direct. Hmmm.... LMDE3 then. Thank you. My general impression is that with LMDE you get newer Mint stuff but (for a time) older Debian stuff while with vanilla Debian you get newer Debian stuff but older versions of Mint stuff. Once LMDE 4...

Network Settings Small Window

Hi everyone, I have been experiencing a strange problem. When I open the network settings from the Wi-Fi indicator on the panel it opens in an odd size – about half as tall as it should be. See the screen shot below. Screenshot from 2019-07-22 20-42-31.png If I open the network settings from the “Sy...

Re: LMDE 4 on Buster?

Maybe I am out-of-touch with other Linux distro’s but my experience with LMDE is that it “just works” and looks pretty good. I use pure Debian on my servers but those are headless boxes with no GUI. What I like is that the packages are the same and the config files are (for the most part) in the sam...

Same question here, with Buster, I think I would like to try LMDE, and hopefully LMDE 4 will come soon.
I will second that. I think Clem and team should just ditch the Ubuntu-based version of Mint (something I have admittedly never used) and make LMDE the flagship product.
