Re: when lmde 2 (betsy) will be available?

Upgrading LMDE to the current Jessie brings some major issues. That's why kurotsogi suggested (or should I say demanded?) UP9 before the move to Jessie. But I think that's irrelevant by now. People who want a rolling release have already left LMDE and the other users simply don't seem to care. Stab...

Even though I don't use Cinnamon I would consider this step somewhat drastic to avoid a 10 to 20 second delay on shutdown :D

Re: when lmde 2 (betsy) will be available?

user currently can't directly move into debian testing. You can and you don't have to wait. Just install Debian Testing on your system and get rid of LMDE at the same time :D LMDE is useless anyway if what you want is Debian Testing. I'm sure that this is easier, cleaner and quicker than moving fro...

Re: Update failed - in fallback mode

@karlchen I think moving this thread to LMDE was wrong. squeeze is Debian stable. LMDE is based on testing, that's jessie. I have not run LMDE for weeks, but I don't suppose there was an update, there hardly ever is :wink: (not counting firefox which is unlikely to crash Cinnamon without having this...

I haven't had any problems with any upgrades yet. I don't think I'll have any in the future. We'll see, "When it is Ready". Why are you so negative?

Sure, but installing 17.1 you would note problems right at the install. That's hardly time lost.
Installing LMDE 201403 might work fine but give trouble with the big upgrade in spring 2015 on a fully installed system. That's more time lost to fix or install anew.

Re: when lmde 2 (betsy) will be available?

Does it still pay off to install LMDE 201403? Will I be able to upgrade directly from 201403 to LMDE 2 or will I have to do a complete fresh install? (If so, I would rather install Mint 17 Qiana.) The claimed advantage of stability of future LMDE 2 being based on Debian Stable surely does not count...

Re: Access to unstable debian packages

For safety reasons I would first add unstable to pinning-preferences. There should be a file called /etc/apt/preferences or /etc/apt/preferences.d/preferences .

Re: LMDE Mate panels disappear

There will be no more update packs for the current version of LMDE. LMDE 2 will be based on Debian Stable (see http://blog.linuxmint.com/?p=2671 ) and will neither be rolling nor semi-rolling (unless you count Debian's move every other year). LMDE 2 was first announced for November 2014 (see http://...

Re: LMDE Mate panels disappear

If the panels give trouble try

Code: Select all

pkill mate-panel
This restarts the panel(s).
If the background goes black and the icons disappear this seems to me a crash of caja (frequent in MATE 1.6, less so in MATE 1.8, which as current LMDE is not really maintained anymore will come with LMDE 2 God knows when).

Re: Software Sources only lists servers and not individual P

1. You mix up the tool to choose the fastest LMDE mirror with the sources list (one or various text files). As far as I remember (haven't used LMDE for some weeks now) you can manipulate sources list with mintupdate and synaptic, if not you can always use a text editor. If you manually add a reposit...
