Re: Linuxmint-11 Fluxbox?

I've got a decent base level .iso ready to start doing some packaging on, though I'll likely wait for the next LMDE respin before starting on the release .iso. Fortunately most of the packaging can be done from any Debian base system. The most time consuming aspects of the whole thing are the menu (...

Re: fm3 preliminary package for testing.

Today I added the ability to monitor GTK bookmarks to fluxdgmenu . So I think it is now pretty much feature complete, and I will concentrate on fixing bugs, if some of you are willing to report them :wink: Awesomesauce. I'll start testing this evening. Kendall, regarding the logout app, I read in a...

Re: Linux Mint 11 LXDE RC released!

To prevent gparted from being removed on the install it's actually fairly complicated versus simply putting it in yourself after the install. You would need to extract the .iso file, add a line to a manifest.desktop file and then rebuild the iso. We don't have gparted as a default installed applicat...

Re: How to remove wrong fluxmenu entries?

The base level menu is at the normal ~/.fluxbox/menu location while all of the submenus are in ~/.mint-fm2/.

Re: fm3 preliminary package for testing.

ju1ius's work looks very promising for me. I like the idea of a native daemon and the dpkg trigger mode. The only downside to dpkg triggers is that it won't adjust the menu if you install/remove anything by other means. If you build an app from source, or make use of something like Mozilla Prism, t...

Re: I am at the beginning

It looks like you need to add a new user, but doing so is impossible without having the root password. My best advice is to download a more recent version of Mint that's still supported (at least version 9) and do a clean install so that you can start from a clean slate. Burning the disk image to a ...

Re: I hope so..............

The question I turn in my head for a few days is this:would Mint Debian KDE work just as well 'out of the box'? One of the qualities for which many people choose Mint is this the ease of use which, if failed, would risk provoking a mass exodus of end users. Please, someone comfort me ...... :mrgree...

Maybe I am just "lucky" enough to have perfectly compatible hardware, but I find Mint 11 Main, Mint 11 LXDE, and even Kubuntu 11.10 Alpha to all be extremely well-crafted and solid/reliable distributions. I personally go way out of my way to make sure that every piece of hardware I buy is as Linux ...

Re: Learning about Linux commands, what's this?

Even in Asheville, NC, USA, I'm pretty sure it would be 'ipa.ddr.ess' ssh doesn't require you to verbosely state three digits in each block. For instance 010.001.242.021 can be stated as 10.1.242.21 with no problems. This convention is pretty universal as it's just a decimal representation of 4 blo...

Re: Using Linux Mint with Roadrunner Cable Service

In general your cable modem will act as DHCP server and everything should work once hardware is connected. See this blog for a recent Road Runner user on Linux: http://www.linuxheadquarters.com/howto/networking/cablemodem.shtml . Not sure if all those steps are needed. There should be no additional...

Re: Learning about Linux commands, what's this?

Usually it's common practice to use the following convention: ssh username@hostname.com or ssh username@ip.ad.re.ss and then enter your password. You may need to a write-protected key on your system, but the administrator for the host should provide you with all the information you need regarding th...

Re: Using Linux Mint with Roadrunner Cable Service

You'll be just fine. There will be an Ethernet cable coming from the back of the cable modem and it'll assign an IP to the computer just like your DSL modem did.

Note regarding the X issue.

It looks like the X issue that is plaguing so many users of the RC is an incompatibility with LXDM and X somewhere. The team has done some "successful thus far" testing with GDM and it looks like we'll be releasing an RC2 before we go to stable to test for the resolution of this issue.

Re: fm3 preliminary package for testing.

DNS propagation may not be complete just yet. It often takes 24 to 48 hours for it to completely finish, after which there should be no issues using the repo. I know I can access it from home, but not from the coffee shop down the street that uses a different ISP than me.
