Re: Last update cinnamon went wrong

@karlchen Thanks for your non-helpful science. I did not open any Romeo repo. It was just plain update from cinnamon-desktop-data 2.4.2. And please, do yourself a favour, stop treating users you don't know as dumb asses. EDIT: this post has been written without seeing the one of Clem. Thanks to him ...

Re: Last update cinnamon went wrong

Same here. I installed the Cinnamon update. When I rebooted, Cinnamon had crashed and refused to start. Now I have removed cinnamon from my computer using synaptic (as well as about ten other packages recently updated). My sources.list in Synaptic is OK (archive.ubuntu....) $ inxi -Fxz System: Host:...

Yes, they will enjoy it immensely. From November on... As for me, I'm done with LMDE.

Re: Error messages when launching gparted and synaptic

[...] I am still at a loss to understand what you were trying to achieve. Both gparted and synaptic are in your main menu (gparted only if you installed it) and they are accessed by a click on the menu entry followed by your login. There are no errors. If you do not understand, I can't help. AFAIK,...

Re: Error messages when launching gparted and synaptic

There is most likely nothing wrong with your gparted nor synaptic. Access to either program is subject to login authorisation and the correct terminology for access via a terminal is "gparted-pkexec" and "synaptic-pkexec" respectively. pkexec is part of the policy kit authentica...

Error messages when launching gparted and synaptic

Hi I get litterally hundreds of error messages on my terminal when I launch gparted. As gparted is a sensitive piece of software, what can I do to correct it? I use LTS Qiana Cinnamon. roger@roger-mint ~ $ sudo gparted [sudo] password for roger: ====================== libparted : 2.3 ===============...

A proposal: include a binary for Scid_vs_PC

Hi Scid_vs_PC is easily the best chess Linux software you can find. It's a fork of Scid which you still can find in the repository. You have to compile it. It's trivial with LMDE and SolydX. I did it. However, something is wrong with Qiana Cinnamon on this regard: you can't create a proper makefile ...

Re: [solved] after UP8 (LMDE) very weak sound from TV

I did it.

Somewhat, I think that some setting has been changed during the last update, unknowingly to the user. As far as sound is concerned, if there are some settings to be modified (why?), the sound should better be set to "loud" than "mute". :D

Re: downloading calibre for linux

I also asked the same question to Kovid Goyal.

His reply says that wget is broken, and I can use curl -L for the time being. The latter worked but wget still needs repair... So half-solved. :D

Re: debian-system-adjustments on the move

Thanks

I did not pay attention enough to the figures. I'll try to upgrade the driver anyway (after saving). I thought .72 was the most recent version, I did not check the figures before 72.. :oops: .

Re: debian-system-adjustments on the move

OK so I looked the message on the top of your link from hubert.banas. They speak about Ctrl C problems.

So you mean I should downgrade my driver to 331.38 as advised? Because now with Parcellite, ctrl C is no more a problem.
