NVIDIA Install options.

Hi all, I just installed and updated LinuxMint 13 (Linux 3.2.0-56-generic) KDE SC Version 4.8.5 64-bit and request a guiding hand to install the NVIDIA driver safely. There are so many confusing instructions available; I found 3 possible options. Option #1 sudo apt-add-repository ppa:xorg-edgers/ppa...

Re: LMDE UP6 ISOs?

.......the unrealistic and self-imposed deadline is irritating and from a professional point of view deserves to be amended (how difficult and time-consuming could that be, I wonder). And just what is that deadline you are talking about? There never is a deadline, its ready when its ready, as alway...

Re: LMDE UP6 ISOs?

The ISOs have entered Q&A: http://community.linuxmint.com/iso . Great! So would you have an educated guess as to the approximate time-frame for finally releasing these iso's? I think the RC will come out next week unless any problems are found during the QA. I think the final version will come ...

Re: Foxit Reader using WINE in LMDE 64-bit

Looking at the latest Wine HQ reports, it appears that later versions of Foxit Reader require later versions, like 1.5, of Wine: http://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.php?sClass=application&iId=4060 . I cannot advice directly because I do not use Foxit. Here is a guide for installing Wine 1.5.5...

Re: Grub Customizer

Ah... :) You must be using Mate ... No problem using pluma . No need to install gedit . (they are both just text editors). You can use either one, since you already have pluma that's good.

Re: Grub Customizer

Hi Ibex.... Welcome to Mint. Your mistake is you can't use PPA's (Ubuntu based) with LMDE (Debian based). As Bimbsasee said you just have to remove the PPA from your sources list. 'Software Sources" SHOULD be in your ap menu?? Other ways to get there. 1. Open synaptic. Got to 'settings'>'repos...

Re: Grub Customizer

Thanks for response. I checked and double checked in 'Control Center' for 'Software Sources' but it's definitely not listed therein nor is it listed in the Application Menu. Where else should I look for in LMDE 201204 64-bit UP5? Sorry for testing your patience but I just migrated from WinXP to LMDE...
