Re: Unofficial LMDE KDE Live DVD: UP4 / 201208

@Schoelje: I used a risky method of getting WINE, namely by setting up the WINE Ubuntu Precise ppa in my repos. I will say that, so far, there haven't been any breakages, borkages, or otherwise bad thingages happening. I'm running the 32-bit version, though, since I've only got 3 GB of RAM so there'...

Re: Unofficial LMDE KDE Live DVD: UP4 / 201208

I have a similar issue on one of my systems: after startup sound is muted. I always resolve that by uninstalling pulseaudio. Maybe that'll do it for you too. Worked like a charm, Schoelje. It put up an error message, but I had it forget about the previous configuration. I'll post back here if I hav...

Re: Dual boot Win/Linux accessing one from the other?

If you have Windows on a virtual machine, you can simply run the program through the virtual machine. However, if you want to run Windows programs without the virtual machine, you'll need WINE (I recommend PlayOnLinux).

Re: Dual boot Win/Linux accessing one from the other?

Short answer: No. Long answer: Any Windows programs you have, whether they're on your Windows partition, or on disc, would have to be installed via WINE. Your Windows partition IS accessible via Linux, and you'll be able to get the files that are on there. But as it stands, you would not be able to ...

Re: Unofficial LMDE KDE Live DVD: UP4 / 201208

Here's a silly question:

When I log into my system, my volume always starts out at full blast until I use the volume button, then it's at my default volume. I've googled, but probably didn't word my search in a way that it would recognize it.

It's not a huge deal - just irritating :P.

Re: Unofficial LMDE KDE Live DVD: UP4 / 201208

I decided to pull the trigger and install LMDE KDE. Just thought I'd share some issues I've run into, with resolutions as applicable: 1. Had trouble with Synaptic at first. It would freeze up after selecting a package to install for some bizarre reason, causing me to force it to close. I was able to...

I know, those were only suggestions that were really no big deal in the grand scheme of things, and easily taken care of after the installation, as if to say "Gosh, wouldn't it be nice if....". ;)

Re: Unofficial LMDE KDE Live DVD: UP4 / 201208

Personally, what I'd want it for would be to have it replace PCLinuxOS as my general "go to" distro. For me, that was the best of the rolling releases for it was quite stable, and I liked the fact that I'd never have to reinstall the OS every couple of years. I gave LMDE KDE a test run yesterday wit...

Re: Linux Mint 12 KDE RC first impressions

I tested the 64 bit RC via USB stick. I ran into problems immediately when it completely froze up while using Firefox except for the mouse (the pointer would move around, but not do anything, not even change when it came across text or hyperlink). Decided to try again, got the same result when using...

Re: How to turn off "aero snap"?

Go to your Compiz settings and Window Management and then Grid, then Edges. Just set them to none. Right now they're probably set to Maximize. Let me know if that works for you.

My idea is to take the basic LMDE package, set the Debian repositories to 'Squeeze', add the main packages from AV Linux...
