Re: module dm-raid45 not found

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

Hi guys, it's been another month, no fix in sight. Is anyone looking into this?
I just installed an update on LMDE 3 and this issue has been fixed.

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Wow, I didn't know the outdated software compared to debian direct.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

LMDE 3 is based on Debian Stretch. An upgrade to Debian Buster will happen when LMDE 4 is released. There is no timetable for LMDE 4 yet. Announcements about upcoming releases are done on https://blog.linuxmint.com/. Hi xenopeek, You mention that " An upgrade to Debian Buster will happen when LMDE ...

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.

Re: LMDE 4 on Buster?

There will be a LMDE 4 release at some point but there's nothing announced for it beyond that. Is there any official announcement about that? I am thinking about switching to Buster on my notebook (which is currently Cindy) but I am hesitant because I have everything working so well. If I knew ther...

LMDE 4 on Buster?

Hi everyone,

just wondering if there will be a LMDE 4 based on Buster now that it’s released? Or will we see updates to Cindy that transition us to a Buster base?

The Fish

PS: I love LMDE… It is the only distro I have stuck with for a long-term. It just works.

Re: Remmina vs. Vinagre

Remmina already is in the Debian repos, but you'll need to add the backports repo if you haven't already: https://packages.debian.org/search?keywords=remmina Can you provide some info about enabling backports? I have the following in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/additional-repositories.list deb http://f...

Remmina vs. Vinagre

Is there any chance of Remmina being added to the LMDE or Debian repos? I know it is available as a Flatpak but it says it will take up 2.4 GB in that form and I am reluctant to install it that way. Maybe it is the traditionalist in me but I prefer basic tools like this to be installed via the norma...

Re: Change GRUB timeout /etc/default/grub.ucf-old

Hi again, just to add a little more information on this. I copied /etc/default/grub.ucf-old back to /etc/default/grub and ran “sudo update-grub” and now it boots without displaying the GRUB menu again. I was sure a few days ago when I last checked that update-grub itself was also missing and I assum...

Change GRUB timeout /etc/default/grub.ucf-old

hi everyone, After one of the updates to LMDE 3 I was surprised to see my GRUB boot menu showing for a few seconds again. I had changed GRUB_TIMEOUT=0 in /etc/default/grub a long time ago. So I went looking for /etc/default/grub and found it had been renamed grub.ucf-old. Where do I go to change the...

Re: LMDE on Dell XPS 15z

OK, well I have a partial answer to my own question. I am able to get Linux to boot by adding the "noapic" kernel parameter at boot time. I have, for the time being, added it to my GRUB so that I don't need to type it each time. I am not 100% clear on what the implications of adding this parameter i...

It looks very nice, has a “second generation” Core i7 sandybridge processor, 8 GB of RAM and a 750 GB hard drive. I have installed Windows 7 Pro on it and am now putting LMDE ...

Restoring standard VGA console

Hi everyone, I am running LMDE. After GRUB, when I boot up I see text scrolling on the screen. Initially the text I see is your “standard” text (80 columns by 25 rows) with classic “DOS-like” VGA fonts. At some point fairly early in the boot process the resolution changes to a much higher resolution...
