Re: LMDE 201403 Installation on two hard disks

I had the exact same installation. 2 hard drives. I installed sda Linux and sdb Windows. I solved my installation problems (took me the weekend) by starting LMDE in UEFI from the dvd. Then followed all installation instructions. Partitioned it as I wanted it. My Mistake no 1: I installed the bootloa...

Re: Hey Guys!

From there I tried OPENsuse for a while and then moved to Ubuntu. My trusty Laptop failed to start one day (Motherboard something) so I decided it's time to ...

[Solved] Install Steam on LMDE 64 bit Cinnamon, Nvidia

So I had to try and help others with this. I successfully got steam working on the 64 bit edition with Nvidia drivers, but since I could not find a suitable post from other people on the Mint forums I thought I'd create one. So, you go to the software center to install Steam. It installs and updates...

Re: [TUTORIAL] Installing Mint on a Windows 8/8.1 Computer

Just for information, in the installation you get asked to install the boot loader. Remember to choose the /dev/sda? partition that you made the UEFI boot when using a secondary hard drive. On Windows 8.1 and the other a linux hard drive. I could not get it to work just on /dev/sda. Choose the parti...

Re: Finance Software for Linux Mint

I wondered about the "Linux journey" the brought me here, and would love to read some other stories of how people got to this point (the point of writing on the MINT forum and using Mint) What w...

Re: Steam/Wine - DirectX not working

So just to make sure...

For steam and ia32 and all other 32 bit libraries, I can go ahead and install all of them - to get steam running?

Re: How to read/mount disks in LMDE

I had the same problem a while back. I just could not get it to mount. I found out that my Windows side had it still open. I turned of the quick shutdown option in Win 8.1 (You kan keep them kinda ounted in windows and then the system starts faster?). Maybe there's something holding them open? in so...

Re: LMDE Vs. Mint?

If you compare Steam gaming on both I'd go with mint-Ubuntu-cinnamon. I struggled a day with getting Steam to work on LMDE.
So that is my recommendation. For anything else, i'll stay with Debian base, but that's just preference.

LMDE Installation UEFI <SUCCESS> with dual boot Windows 8.1

I've been a Linux user for 9 years now... still loving it! I just moved to LMDE because I wanted a Debian based distro and not the Ubuntu based one. I tried for the whole weekend to install LMDE, Slackware, Ubuntu, Kali Linux, and a few others to the UEFI. My success story: Read up on how UEFI works...
