Is there a release schedule? I'd like to have an approximate date so that I can decide whether to wait for LMDE or install the Ubuntu-based Mint for the time being.


No, there is no release schedule.

Re: LinuxMint Debian binaries the same as debian.org ?

You can use Debian repositories with LMDE, as it's just a snapshot of testing at a point in time. These snapshots are released in Update Packs and the goal is to create a compromise between stable and testing, with newer packages but little (but hopefully no) breakage. There are many here who use th...

How are you creating your Live USB? I tried making one with Unetbootin, but it didn't work. The Universal USB Installer from http://www.pendrivelinux.com/universal-usb-installer-easy-as-1-2-3/ worked for me.

Re: LMDE Suggestion

Although LMDE is based on Debian testing, I find it very stable. I run Wheezy on another box I own and it's very good as well. But what makes you think LMDE is not that stable? To me Cinnamon on top of Jessie works very well. :D By looking at the comments regarding Update Pack 7 and it's breaking a...

Re: LMDE Suggestion

Why can't LMDE just be based off of Debian Stable, instead of messing things up with Testing!. Since the Ubuntu version has a poor support cycle for non-LTS releases, LMDE based on Wheezy would be a better option for many. Also since the KDE developers may bee entirely giving up on Ubuntu, thanks t...

Re: Several Cinnamon desktop issues afer installation

Yeah, it seems like a pretty common issue. I noticed you're running an Intel HD Graphics card in your laptop (just like I am).

Maybe that has something to do with it. Anyways, glad it worked for you too!

Re: Several Cinnamon desktop issues afer installation

I managed to fix it by following the advice here: https://github.com/linuxmint/Cinnamon/issues/696

The command

Code: Select all

gsettings set org.nemo.desktop background-fade false
fixed it for me.

I have this problem too. Unfortunately for me, killing and restarting Nemo and Cinnamon only fixes the problem for a second, the background turns black again almost instantly.

Re: Difference with regular Debian ?

Right now it's probably not a fair comparison because Testing is frozen and not likely to break. But when testing is working like it should, things can break and the user have no idea how to fix them. UPs provide information along with each update, as well as solutions to problems that might arise. ...

Yeah, that didn't effect me because I'm on testing. The good news is that it'll work as soon as UP5 should come out!

Have you tried replacing network-manager with WICD?

It's sometimes an easy fix to weird network-manager issues.

Re: Update Pack 5 release date?

I use Debian testing and honestly, I get tired of having multiple new updates every day. Once wheezy goes stable, I plan on converting that one too to LMDE and getting my updates in UPs from now on.

It's easy enough to get packages from upstream when I want them.
