Re: LMDE4 breaks Jitsi

Seems that Jitsi Desktop has problems with Java >8. Luckily Java8 is also installed in LMDE4, just not easily selectable (update-alternatives would change it for all apps). My kludge for the moment is to edit /usr/bin/jitsi and change the javabin variable: #javabin=`which java` javabin=/usr/lib/jvm/...

[Solved] LMDE4 breaks Jitsi

I just upgraded a machine from LMDE3 to LMDE4 following https://community.linuxmint.com/tutorial/view/2475 . The upgrade process went smooth, but it left several things broken. One of them is my Jitsi Desktop application which I do need: It hangs on startup, throwing a LOT of messages, starting with...

Re: Missing library libQtNetwork.so.4

Ah, Monsta to the rescue again :D — thanks a lot! Didn't think of apt-file.

Code: Select all

apt install libqt4-network
did the trick, BeeBeep is now up and running.
Funnily, that search returns no results on another LMDE2 system although libqt4-network is installed there…

Another of the many little troubles installing LMDE3 and to get the previus setups running again… The nice little intranet LAN messenger BeeBeep is built using Qt4, needing several libs. http://beebeep.sourceforge.net/ On LMDE2 I did — apt install libqt4-dev libqt4-core libqt4-gui libqt4-xml libxcb-...

Missing library libmyodbc

Since regrettably there is no easy upgrade from LMDE2 Mate I'm now starting to do fresh installs of LMDE3 (on ≈14 quite different machines… ugh!), running into many small troubles. One of them is this: For LibreOffice to access a MySQL database on a server I need to install and set up several things...

Re: Why does gnome-terminal ignore $HOME/bin ?

Thank you monsta, this explains it.
So, LMDE should now probably have such a ~/.xsessionrc as a copy from ~/.profile, I think.

Re: How best to run a user script at shutdown?

@catweazel — right, I was still thinking SysV, I'm not used to SystemD yet.  Will look into that. Since I plan on rsync, the Samba shares on the server won't be used and may be unmounted; the local drive need only be readable, network must still be active (was connected via user's NetworkManager).

Re: How best to run a user script at shutdown?

Hmm, that all sounds quite convoluted.  Maybe I should not look at Linux's shutdown but at Cinnamon (Mate) logout? Is there a way to hook into the desktop's shutdown (and delay it as necessary), before it finally calls system shutdown? When the user clicks the DE's button “Shutdown” (or logout)? For...

How best to run a user script at shutdown?

What would be the best way to run a script in userspace at shutdown? I'd like to reliably synchronize mail folders and profiles from the local disc to a server when the user shuts down its LMDE3/Cinnamon machine, like so: rsync -vahz --delete /home/<user>/eMail/ <user>@server:eMail/ rsync -vahz --de...

Re: Why does gnome-terminal ignore $HOME/bin ?

Hmm… that's a bit surprising.  And the virtual terminals / ssh behave different.  I see that as a bug. 
Where where they sourced in LMDE2 (Mate)? Can't see it.

[SOLVED] Why does gnome-terminal ignore $HOME/bin ?

Just did a fresh install of LMDE3 and found this: In Cinnamon desktop, a freshly opened gnome-terminal does not have $HOME/bin in its path. Which it should have according to ~/.profile, and did have in LMDE2. While the virtual terminals (CtrlAlt-F1) do add my ~/bin to their path, a ssh shell also ad...

That was clear:  the Mint team set a higher priority on its own packages (branding, sponsoring) which is alright so far.

Re: AMD RX550 UHD on LMDE?

Wow.  19 steps including compiling a newer kernel… respect! Thank you, but I think I'll stay with my current Nvidia.
Mind you, only the RX550 seems to need Mesa >= 17.1 because of an oversight in the Radeon driver…
