Re: Bootsplash, icons & panel got changed

OK thanks!

That changed the 1st bootup screen to debian blue. Thats the bootsplash I guess.

The screen where I enter my password is still the gray LM10 background, as well as the screen at shut down, gray LM10 again.

I'd like to change them back to as they were.

Re: Bootsplash, icons & panel got changed

Thanks for the reply.

I got the icons back to Debian, thanks!!

I found boot/grub

How do I login as root so I can change the image?

I am the only user of this computer.

Re: Solution: mintdesktop 3.2.2 upgrade bug

Thanks, I got the mintdesktop 3.2.2 fixed. I marked it solved on another thread I think... sorry. The same day that happened, the bootup screen changed to Mint 10, my icons changed, and the panel changed colors too. Very strange to see a gray Mint 10 screen on booting up LMDE. Have not seen anyone e...

Bootsplash, icons & panel got changed

My bootsplash changed from the blue debian to gray LM10. And my panel changed as well, from debian to LM. Many icons have changed as well. (This all somehow happened with the dec 2/3 update when the mintdesktop issue happened. We got that mintdesktop3.2.2 update fixed. Thank you.) Im not too fond of...

[SOLVED] Re: mintdesktop 3.2.2 error, I cant fix it

Thank you!

That did the trick.

Wonder why the LM10 screen when I log in? What about the LM panel? And the new icons?

I liked the debian theme.

But Im happy to have this issue behind me now, many thanks!

To be more precise: apt update sudo rm /var/lib/dpkg/info/mintdesktop.prerm apt install mintdesktop Note: This is related to the previous version of mintdesktop (as weird as it sounds, this is actually a fix but because we're in the presence of a prerm bug you get hit by the problem after you remov...

This still isnt solved.

So I had to find another way, the document needed to be finished.

This is a free online pdf editor.

Cant edit/save pdf

I had this problem with Mint 9 and solved it by installing acroread.

I am running LMDE now, so I installed acroread and it seems to be missing a plugin or something.

It opens my pdf doc, but I cant edit it.

Thanks
Jim
