Re: LMDE 5

You actually don't have to wait for LMDE 5. Just install Siduction or SparkyLinux. Siduction has a Cinnamon iso. With Sparky, I downloaded the Semi-rolling release with Mate Desktop, then used Synaptic to get Cinnamon. Both are using the Debian sid repositories, running kernel 5.10 at the moment. I...

Re: Mate System Monitor

Hello all! I'm using LM Mate 20.1. I have Mate System Monitor added to the panel. I would like to know is there a way to have a real-time values displayed on top of the graphs, all the time, not just if I go with the mouse over it. Thank you for your response! I don't believe you can get that, with...

Re: LMDE 5

My guess is we'll be able to get Debian 11 + non-free before we can get LMDE/5. This is what happened to me last time; I'm still running straight Debian 10.4 as a result. I had to use the Main Edition on a budget build that I did for a buddy: That build used a Ryzen 3 with integrated graphics and n...

Debian: the unofficial Multimedia repository is considered insecure :shock: https://blog.desdelinux.net/en/debian-el-repositorio-no-oficial-multimedia-es-considerado-inseguro/ That web link is clearly Fake News. no sources are provided, the author is way out of touch or does not understand.

Re: LMDE 5

Stable if you want/need Reliable and bug free. That's what I'm using LMDE4 for, it's obviously frankendebian but very stable being based on Buster with the added bonus of the latest Cinnamon from the Linux Mint team who develop it. I've done the bleeding edge with Manjaro and openSUSE Tumbleweed, t...

Re: LMDE 5

If you're a Cinnamon guys, sit tight and wait it out. If you like other DE/WM Sparky will get you "rolling" immediately OR just use Debian. *Huge pool of dedicated developers that have a primary focus on Debian and with a goal of Stability. Stable if you want/need Reliable and bug free. T...

Re: Thanks to AndyMH for Foxclone

I am looking forward to when my "testing machine" and I both have the time to try it out. Good! while I'm adding a verify function there is nothing to compare to testing it for 'real' and confirming it works (or if not, telling me what went wrong so I can try and fix it). First glitch: it...

Re: Thanks to AndyMH for Foxclone

Pardon me, perhaps your files can be restored including the SWAP... I expected copies of Partitions. I will copy it all to another machine and see how the restore works. What you see are compressed image files for each of the partitions backed up. If you want to restore to another PC you need to se...

Re: How to Split PDF file

Yes pdfarranger is in the Mint 20 repo, too. I never used it though. that's good. Glad you can get it. for me, I frequently use it to delete entire Pages, and to add entire Pages. for grabbing parts of the Text or grabbing Images I use Pluma. maybe the OP needs something more, or different than that

I've just tried out Master PDF Editor. It looks good. It would have saved me a few hours today if I'd checked it out earlier.

Edit: The free version does add a watermark.
Master PDF Editor is a proprietary application... I will not try it, I will stick with Open Source (99.999% anyway)
