Re: Linux Mint Debian Edition 3

Understood. Mate 1.18 is not yet Stable, so not in D9.

Re: Linux Mint Debian Edition 3

I suppose that would be Debian 8 testing. I prefer the Debian 9 Mate version (1.16), zero bugs and full features.
Not sure what you would get mixing LMDE with D9...
Better to stick with Stable I think.

Re: Linux Mint Debian Edition 3

Missing features since the May 1.18 "update" have been patched by Mate months ago. Drag/drop to panel is most important for me, but updated LMDE2 still is broken. Fresh install and it works. This was reported long ago but apparently ignored by Mint/Ubuntu. We would like to resume using LM...

Re: Linux Mint Debian Edition 3

Thanks
We are still waiting for bug patches for LMDE2. We are months behind.

Re: [URGENT] When is Linux Mint Stretch/Betsy out?

Not very likely to be named LMDE 3 for the next release, and instead will be come back to true versionless like Tumbleweed, Arch, Gentoo etc. :) That's not happening. I do not understand the Mint versions of LMDE. By definition, a rolling release has no versions. Arch puts out a new ISO every month...

Do you want to file a bug report or should I?

Re: How to disable auto-maximize?

different desktops have different tools... If you are using Mate go to System> Preferences > Look and Feel> Windows. The tab "Placement" has "window snapping"... uncheck "enable side by side tiling" I know that is weird and illogical, but it works. --- That is one of th...

Re: boot-repair

I have only seen people at their wits end bringing their computer to a repair shop from UEFI. I have multi-boot UEFI installs on 3 different computers with little hassle. It just takes learning what they do/how they work. I did TV repair work for years, everybody said the OSD, on screen display, wa...

Re: LMDE 2 to LMDE 3

Debian 9 Mate non-free is great. Not much tweaking to get all that I want, except Google Earth is not happening yet.
Recommend.

Yes, it is not as easy to install, but not that difficult with the live version.

PS: Mint would do well to use that as a base for LMDE next time

Re: When is Linux Mint Stretch/Betsy out?

We all need to re-evaluate our personal needs and goals. There is a range between "new shiny things" and boring "get it done". LMDE is somewhere in the middle. For true Stability I don't believe you can do better than Debian Stable, either Jessie or Stretch. That's just my opinio...

Re: [URGENT] When is Linux Mint Stretch/Betsy out?

Personally I have no doubt that Linux Mint will eventually produce LMDE 3 based on Stretch. === However my feeling is that Mate is not very important to Mint, perhaps unimportant. The version of Mate that Mint produces is unique. They have created a version that is very much like Cinnamon in layout,...
