Re: /Home Partition vs no /Home Partition discussion

I do have a separate /home partition, mostly because I spend a lot of time customizing the configurations of my packages. When I do a fresh install on the root partition, I open two windows: one, of my new home folder, and the other, my old home partition. In both windows I view hidden files. Then I...

Re: Mint Debian

I'm making some really good progress on the live-helper-based CD. MP3 and Flash will be included. DVD support (libdvdcss2) doesn't seem like much use running from CD, but if it fits (it probably will) I'll add that and w32codecs. Any other codecs I forgot? Excellent to hear about your progress. Reg...

Re: Mint Debian

Well guys, I downloaded Parsix 1.5 Viola, burned a live CD and gave it a whirl on my HP dv6775. I really like it a lot - very slick, easy to work with. A few things I didn't care for were the dual panels (seriously, why two?), no network manager in either panel that I could see anyway, and some defa...

Re: broken packages

No, the explanation is right. You've got dist-upgrade enabled (or worse you performed a direct apt dist-upgrade) so new packages get updated no matter what.. even if that means you'll loose packages on the way (due to changes in dependencies). It's quite unfortunate that the version numbers for Ubu...

Re: broken packages

Hold on.. I'm not completely sure about my previous explanation. Basically you shouldn't see these updates unless you've activated "dist-upgrade" in mintUpdate. It's probably due to a metapackage which we don't maintain. I'm having a look... Clem. I'm having the same problem, but I wanted to add th...

Re: In the desert.

i actually have gotten almost my whole company to convert to linux so far. my goal is to be 100% linux for our batallion. Considering Linux's beginnings as a way for multiple users to operate in the same system, not to mention its level of security, I'd think Linux would be ideal for the military. ...

Re: Panel effected by change in screen resolution [Kinda solved]

hmm I forgot If you don't have twin view with nvidia there's a little hack Edit your xorg.conf gksu gedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf and add a line so that "Section Device" looks something like Section "Device" Identifier "Configured Video Device" Driver "nvidia" Option "DynamicTwinView" "False" EndSection...

Re: Anyone have any luck getting the nvidia 6100se working?

Basically lappy is frying itself everytime I use it so I bought a new desktop. This desktop has an nvidia 6100se graphics card which I cannot seem to get to work. Though I must admit I have only tried doing it in the liveCD since I do not want to repartition my 500gb HDD unless I know it all works ...

Re: Panel effected by change in screen resolution

OK this is me reporting back. I already have Envy NG, and had run it to automatically install the nvidia drivers for my card when I installed Elyssa. Just for fun, I ran this operation again, and it did in fact find 3 new drivers. However, this was not able to resolve the issue I had with glitches t...

There is someone else with some strange problem and a 8400 (taken from memory) so there may be something going on... Anyway get the latest Envy from http://albertomilone.com/nvidia_scripts1.html For Elyssa it's Envy NG for all other Mint it's the legacy version As always I can't guarantee what will...

Re: Unofficial Post Your Linux Mint Desktop Thread

Screenlets rocks, they don't even take any CPU or RAM. To bad you need compiz for them to look pretty :( I don't mind using Compiz anymore. Believe me, I was a hardcore Beryl fan for a long time, too. And while I do wish Compiz used as little memory as Beryl did, if you have the RAM and the graphic...

As for me, new screenlets!

Re: Unofficial Post Your Linux Mint Desktop Thread

red-e-made, that is a very nice desktop. One thing I find awesome about Linux is that you don't have to upgrade to get these special effects and nice desktops, it's all for free. With Windows, it's quit the opposite. Yeah the appearance settings are a huge plus for me. The sheer amount of themes av...

Re: Panel effected by change in screen resolution

Thanks in advance, Husse. If it helps, I have a new theory. After the screen resolution has been changed, and then changed back, I noticed that - like I said - pulling the panel down from the top to the bottom creates two panels. This is incorrect - in reality, the panel has indeed moved to the bott...

Re: Panel effected by change in screen resolution

In the top image the icons for mintUpdate and wifi are repeated over and over Something of that kind in the bottom image as well Do you have the background set to tiled? No - Like I said, this is what the panel looks like when I auto-hide it. It doesn't go away, it just does that repeating thing. M...

Panel effected by change in screen resolution [Kinda solved]

OK, so, there's this game I play that will automatically change my screen resolution from 1280x800 to 640x400. It's easy enough to switch back, of course, but while the desktop wallpaper and icons are back at the right resolution, the part of the wallpaper that I can see through the panel (which is ...
