Re: GDM login window

I don't know about Cinnamon, but most probably it's not a matter of "fit in". Lots of programs don't show the number of characters for security reasons. In terminal nothing (not even four dots) is shown when you type your password.

Re: What are the differences between debian and main distro?

Just like with the other Unstable packages, this migration happens automatically only if there are no release-critical bugs uncovered during the mentioned period and if there are no dependency issues. The latter isn't really an issue for the security updates as the changes are usually small and the...

Re: What are the differences between debian and main distro?

Debian Stable does automatically receive security updates, whereas Debian Testing does not . I think this can't be deducted from the official Debian statement. Nothing happens automatically, it all depends on the persons involved. What can we deduct? "the Security Team backports the patch to stable...

Re: What are the differences between debian and main distro?

Regrettably, this proved to be too much work for the limited numbers of volunteers involved. [...] I, for one, am extremely grateful to all the LMDE team for their work in providing our first rate distro.

Re: What are the differences between debian and main distro?

If "semi-rolling" is more important to a user than having a system that actually works well then, sure, such users may be disappointed. However, LMDE does work well for many users and so these users, I suggest, are quite happy as things are. That is not the point. People chose LMDE especially becau...

us current LMDE users should be quite happy with the existing LMDE for the time being. Sure, a user choosing a semi-rolling LMDE is guaranteed to be happy to find that LMDE has stopped rolling. And the fact that there have been several people in forums wondering why their recently installed LMDE 20...

Re: What are the differences between debian and main distro?

The last official statement I know of, dating from 2014-10-10, says Work continues on Betsy but a lot of what’s required for it will only happen once the base is completely frozen. We might be looking at Spring 2015, it’s hard to say just yet. (see http://blog.linuxmint.com/?p=2690). Further down in...

Re: mintupdate: Attempt to unlock mutex that was not locked

As you started with packages from testing you now have two possibilites: 1. Not use testing-repos and downgrade to what your system was before getting packages from testing. Turn back the clock so to say. or 2. Use testing-repos one more time, update and upgrade the packages needed which are in deb ...

Re: What are the differences between debian and main distro?

Obviously, LMDE's state is questionable right now, so I think I will try a pure debian install. ... if you go pure Debian you will have to do a lot of tweaking, codecs, firmware, etc. ... How hard would that sort of stuff be? Not hard if you want Debian Stable, they have Live-DVDs of 7.6 with Xfce ...

Re: Debian Testing repos in LMDE MATE?

But installing from testing on LMDE certainly means serious problems, such as the one I'm experiencing with mutex even when I run mintupdate, what a shame. I would not consider a non-working mintupdate a serious problem. Using LMDE 19 out of 20 days there will be no update pending anyway and you ca...

Re: What are the differences between debian and main distro?

I believe that to say the devs have abandoned LMDE is a mistake. It is in transition as it moves from Debian Testing to Debian Stable as a base. And I think it will end up being more polished, and more attractive in the future. Abandoned is the right wording in my opinion. A distribution that claim...

Re: Debian Testing repos in LMDE MATE?

I had trouble to track testing from LMDE a month ago. It broke the system because of unsolvable dependency conflicts halfway through the upgrade from Mate 1.6 (LMDE) to Mate 1.8 (Testing). But this does not mean that you can't install packages from testing. In a lot of cases you will have to do so, ...

Try again! Maybe you forgot to run update before checking with synaptic. Version 2.24.25-1 is in testing for some days now, at least in ftp.debian.org

Re: What are the differences between debian and main distro?

I'm not looking for complex answers. Just some key things that I should be aware of before trying debian. Don't start with LMDE right now. The former semi-rolling release is no longer supported (in my opinion what has happened to LMDE the last months justifies this wording) and is supposed to resta...

Re: LMDE 17 Install error; blank screen problem

There is no such thing as Linux Mint 17 "Debian".
On your system there is either Linux Mint 17 or Linux Mint Debian Edition (LMDE).
