Re: Future of Mint: Ubuntu or Debian Based

I would love to have a Linux Mint Debian Stable (LMDS)! A perfect marriage! The stability of Debian, and the fine tuning of Mint. Brilliant! You can have it now. Install LMDE. Change the repos to point to Squeeze rather than testing, then: sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade Once it's ...

Re: how do I install a "simple" program?

Well, to get on the same page as you, I don't want to assume anything. So, what is the complete filename of the pcsx file you downloaded. We need to know that first. Then we can go from there.

SOLVED - Re: Menu button still says Elyssa

Just so others don't waste their time, and for any other users who might have this problem, I found the problem/solution. Go to file: /home/<username>/.gconf/apps/mintMenu/%gconf.xml Open this file in Text Editor. On line #47 (line number might be different), you'll see this text: <stringvalue>Elyss...

SOLVED - Menu button still says Elyssa

Okay, so I'm a slow upgrader. Today I upgraded from Mint5 to Mint6, but after I was done, the menu button at the bottom left of the screen still says Elyssa. When I installed Felicia I only formatted the root partition, kept my /home folder as is. Any idea what's wrong here?

Re: Automatic restart/reboot

It just happened again today. My laptop was running in exactly the same configuration as yesterday, I went out for about an hour, came back, the screensaver was running, wiggled the mouse, and had to re-login. The computer had rebooted, all on it's own. Is anyone else having this problem? I will cha...

Re: Automatic restart/reboot

I just experienced this with Elyssa on my laptop. I had Firefox 3.0, and Eclipse 3.4 running. I was then doing some work on my desktop. In the meantime the screensaver started up on the laptop. When I returned to the laptop, I wiggled the mouse, and lo and behold, under the screensaver I was present...

Re: /usr/local not user friendly

Me too! :) I think I have to agree to both ways of looking at this, with some overweight for the Ubuntu/Mint way On the other hand I've not run into problems with /usr/local .... For Ubuntu, I think it's the right way. It's just that I would prefer Debian's way, so that I could install software in ...

Thanks for the info cogDis, I will take this into consideration before I change anything. But personally, I think Ian is right.

/usr/local not user friendly

I've been using Linux for several years, but never before desired to use /usr/local, I always just installed anything extra in my /home/me directory. This time, however, after downloading the latest release of Eclipse Ganymede, wanted to install it in /usr/local. However, I discovered that here, on ...

Elyssa Live CD Boot Problem can be problem with the CD

Hi All, I just wanted to share my experience with the Live CD, since I see a lot of folks having similar problems. I had had Mint 4.0 installed on my desktop machine for only about a month before 5.0 came out. The 4.0 install went just fine and it was running great on that box. So, I decided I would...
