Re: LMDE 201403 Supports SIS Graphics?

VGA is analog, HDMI is digital. Must use an active converter (active means powered, it's using power to convert, its not just a cable that re-routes the same pins). My experience with active converters is limited, but I tend to avoid them. A better option is checking if the screen has a DVI-D port (...

Re: Improve Performance?

We are talking of cinnamon acting like trash when on it's own on quite a few PCs that are perfectly capable of running light games. Not that it hampers gaming.

Re: Improve Performance?

Cinnamon tends to be very temperamental on devices depending on how much it likes the graphics system and the drivers. Did you install proprietary drivers if applicable? I'd like to get an answer too to these questions, as I never found one. When they added wisker menu (advanced menu that does the s...

Re: LMDE 201403 Supports SIS Graphics?

Well, bios version F3 then means the board is probably a rev 1.something, as the rev2.0 board uses FA, FB and so on as bios version numbers. Thankfully the bios has q-flash feature so you only need a floppy or maybe small usb drive with the newer bios version, and then you can navigate in bios optio...

Re: how do I change sudo timeout, and what to? and why?

For example, my terminal session doesn't remember the sudo password I entered from even 5 seconds earlier. If I do: sudo cat /etc/sudoers Then I immediately do: cat /etc/sudoers I get: cat: sudoers: Permission denied You still need to write sudo to run as root. Password is remembered and not asked ...

Did you try the solution posted in the very same bug report you linked? Post number 177 for instruction and post 178 for downloading the patched file.

Re: LMDE 201403 Supports SIS Graphics?

Well, "software rendering" for Cinnamon means that it is trying to force the CPU to double as GPU too, and this causes slowdowns unless your CPU is (very) powerful. For user interfaces that were never designed to use a GPU in the first place, "software rendering" is not slowing d...

Re: LMDE 201403 released!

Been lucky. Ubuntu did the "weekend update screwed up X" trick 4 times before I disabled the update manager alltogether. It's annoying to open up your PC and suddenly find out you cannot do X until you find out what the heck happened and how to revert/fix it. Debian's speed of change is th...

Re: LMDE 201403 Supports SIS Graphics?

any decent linux OS can operate more or less any card that is still technically operational, as long as it is only doing 2D work. If you need to run 3D programs or use the hardware accelerators on the card, then you need a better driver. Afaik there is no 3D acceleration for that graphics anyway bec...

Re: Question re LMDE from Info page

LMDE is less user friendly than Ubuntu-based Mint. This is fact. Installing stuff from outside repos is not easy for a newbie, 99% of the guides around are for Ubuntu (I know that there isn't a whole lot of difference, but I don't think most users take the time) and regardless of what you may think,...

Re: Linux mint support ends

My comment was about the repositories. Whatever can be said about "LTS" support all my experience has been that in a year or so third party software stops being updated in the repo and you are using an old version of GIMP, VLC, LibreOffice, Firefox, whatever. I'm much more interested in t...

Re: Linux mint debian

La stabilità aggiuntiva è apprezzata per workstation, o comunque PC usati per lavoro, dove ogni volta che si incasina qualcosa blocchi produzione e devi chiamare qualcuno a sistemare tutto.

Nel pc di casa va bene qualsiasi.

Mah, java è sempre stato uno schifo. Il motivo per cui JDownloader (quello originale) ha quei problemi è che non è più compatibile con versioni moderne di java. Comunque, in Mint c'è la versione ricompilata dai sorgenti, OpenJDK. Ho il discreto sospetto che se disinstalli quella e installi java dal ...

beh sì, se stai eseguendo uno script devi aggiungere un'altra riga uguale dove dai permessi al programma che legge lo script. Python, ruby o che so.
