[SOLVED] Mate startes CAJA loads 100+ times

Hello, I have a bizarre problem that I have no idea how to address. When I start my Mate session, the CAJA (I think its that icon) starts 100 or 200 + times. My entire task manager bar is filled with caja icons getting smaller and smaller as more and more load. I can't kill them fast enought, more k...

Attempting Cinnamon Install -- Unmet Dependencies

Hello, I'm trying to install Cinnamon 2.2, but get a cryptic message regarding unmet dependencies, that apparently will not be installed. I checked Synaptic for broken depencies, but none are listed.

I'm trying to get it reinstalled, but am running into held broken packages. Results of apt-get and aptitude are below. sudo apt-...

Re: Live USB Thumb Drive of All Flavors of Mint

OK, I will check into YUMI. Something that has occurred to me since posting is that once you install any flavor of mint, adding the other three desktop environments is really adding a few (albeit hundreds) of additional files to create the additional desktop interfaces. But under the desktop, the co...

Live USB Thumb Drive of All Flavors of Mint

Hello, I'm trying to be an evangelist for Mint, and think it would be really cool to have Mint in my pocket on a Live USB at all times. A lot of people have sort of heard of Linux but haven't seen it in action. If I have Mint on a USB, then I can demo it at the drop of a hat when Linux comes up in c...

Re: GIMP will not start

Resolved SORT OF, but not to my satisfaction. I discovered that I had an entry in my repository for GIMP 2.8 -- something containing "kesselgulasch" I vaguely recall adding this so that I could get v 2.8 while the official repository only offered 2.6. I was tired of waiting around for 2.8 ...

Long Term Direction of Mint - MATE or Cinnamon or both?

I'm curious about the future Desktop development Paths. Which DE is the long term path for Mint - Cinnamon or MATE? Or will Mint DE be developed on two different paths indefinately? Dual paths indefinately seems unlikely to me, as it would, I think, divide resources, but maybe I'm wrong. I could not...
