Re: Cinnamon crashes, I have a working desktop (SOLVED)

I had the same problem of Cinnamon crashing. My temporary workaround was to switch to nouveau. Then I followed jim-m's direction by purging 304.132-0ubuntu0.16.04.2 and replacing it with 304.131-0ubuntu3, etc. ... sudo echo “nvidia-304 hold” | sudo dpkg --set-selections dpkg: error: illegal package ...

Re: [SOLVED] LM16 Petra RC-KDE: No Update Manager?

Hello,

I should have thought about this solution sooner. DUH! Here it is:

1. Mint logo
2. System Settings
3. System Administration
4. Startup & Shutdown
5. Autostart
6. Add Program
7. Desktop File: Update Manager
command: mintupdate
status: (checked) enabled startup

:D

Re: Mint 16 KDE before January?

I installed Mint 16 KDE RC last night on a legacy laptop. Probably because of older CPU, it took about 40 minutes in all. No problems so far. I only wish the installer had different colors to distinguish various partitions for distros, just like Ubuntu installer (Manual > Disk Setup).

Cheers!

Re: LMDE UP7: Missing "genuine" Firefox icon

Hello GeneBenson,

It doesn't work. Must be something to do with user interface design within LMDE. The Launcher Properties window in LM 16 does have a Firefox logo or icon.

Thanks for your suggestion anyway.

LMDE UP7: Missing "genuine" Firefox icon

Hello, I noticed that LM16 Cinnamon Edition has the genuine or original Firefox icon (filename: mozicon128.png) in the Menu. However, in LMDE UP7 it's not present, other than a label called "Firefox Web Browser". It's strange that Mozilla Thunderbird below it does have the Mozilla TB icon....

[SOLVED] How do I install Cinnamon 2.0.12 in LMDE UP7?

Hello, A few weeks ago I installed LMDE Cinnamon UP6 then upgraded to UP7. After this, I can only log into Gnome Classics session because Cinnamon 1.88 was removed due to conflicts between gjs and gnome-shell. Instead of waiting for UP8, is it feasible for me to get Cinnamon 2.0.12 and gjs 1.37.6 fr...

Re: Removing KDE from LMDE 2013 UP7 - How?

Hello nascar64,

I am aware of the site that your link leads to. Thanks anyway.

Does anyone know if there's a command similar to the following, that completely purges ALL KDE packages and related dependencies?

Code: Select all

sudo aptitude purge $(deborphan --guess-all)
Any suggestions?
