Re: Linux Mint Debian Edition 3

The cinnamon one works well in a VM - one or two minor annoyances.

Re: Linux Mint Debian Edition 3

Can I say that I've never used Mate, nor do I ever intend to...

Surely Gnome is supported... :D

Re: Linux Mint Debian Edition 3

It sounds like once a successful upgrade from LMDE2 -> LMDE3 has taken place (including the systemd thing) then that would be an optimum time to try switching to Debian, assuming that is desirable. I'm only considering this because LMDE2 is apparently a low priority project and I assume the same wil...

Re: Linux Mint Debian Edition 3

What is the difference (at the application level) between LMDE3 (Cinnamon) and Debian [Stretch] (Cinnamon)?
Is it just purely visual or is different software involved?

If a new stable Debian (after Stretch) is released, will a new LMDE follow in a few months or so?

Re: Linux Mint Debian Edition 3

Note: I use Debian stable repos only. When the next stable (Buster) switches over, I run apt-update as usual, fix any bugs, and clear out any cruft before switching to the newest Mint repos. Is there a recomended automatic cruft detector for LMDE1 upgraded to LMDE2 (hopefully upgraded to) LMDE3? :)

Re: Linux Mint Debian Edition 3

A timeline implies that there are multiple targets for reaching ultimate LMDE3 - is this the case?

Re: Linux Mint Debian Edition 3

Be nice to see a Beta LMDE3, so I could give it a tryout in a LMDE2 VM.

Linux Mint Debian Edition 3

Is there a procedure to switch distros from LMDE2 Cinnamon to Debian [Stretch] Cinnamon? Ideally as an upgrade, rather than an install. I appreciate that the graphics themes etc would be somewhat inferior. I'm not planning on actually doing this - but a fallback option would be nice to have! Systemd...

Re: Linux Mint Debian Edition 3

I've got a couple of programs a bit like that, where I've had to put copies of Stretch programs in my /home because the old ones don't work properly...

Perhaps the rate at which Debian produces stable upgrades is too high?

Re: Please do some work with linux mint debian edition! You have abandoned it!

I'm hoping to see LMDE3 in April - that's next week! :lol:

But I would spend some time trying to test it in a VM.

Re: Change debian to LMDE

Don't forget about all those hundreds of hidden files in /home which contain your preferences.
The list of files produced by Debian will not be the same as LMDE.

Be careful that UID's & GID's match between the two distro's or you will have access problems... etc

Re: Please do some work with linux mint debian edition! You have abandoned it!

I'm not interested in Mate.
I just want the Cinnamon version.

While LMDE 3 will be just a refreshed installation image of the rolling distro... (???)

At this point though I'll need to replace my power supply from 450W to 650W so that I can add a new 2T drive to my box. the 450W PS has only 3 connectors for SATA drives (it might have 4 if 1 is connected to the DVD drive; can't remember). ...

Re: [SOLVED] Creating shortcuts

There is an easier way!!!

In Cinnamon (nemo) right-click the file or directory & left-click on 'Make Link'
This will create a symbolic link.
You can cut and paste the symbolic link to a place in the path which is more convenient, if necessary.

Re: Is it the end for LMDE?

Unfortunately, the LMDE developers seem to be stopping development Oh really ? You have news we don't have ? :lol: Sorry - but despatch of updates to LMDE2 have dwindled to virtually zero and no data is available about any hoped for target dates for LMDE3. For example, is it likely that LMDE3 might...
