Mint 8 KDE... no updates forever & can't force FFox upgrade

I'm in Linux Mint 8 KDE <<< it's all been working so great I've never had to become an ultra Linux pro under the hood. Lately, however, I never get any update notifications via the Update Manager. It's been forever since the icon showed itself unlocked, and if I open it says system up to date for al...

Re: Chrome freaking - breaking after update

Curious to try to "force" it to use an earlier version. Afraid to lose all bookmarks, etc though.......... and damned if I can't figure out how to export that data prior to messing with it

Re: Chrome freaking - breaking after update

open synaptic, from menubar, choose file->history and see what you have update recently. Reverting it back might help. try open the application from terminal, see what error is coming out... Via synaptic I find April 16: "google-chrome-beta (10.0.648.127-r76697) to 11.0.696.48-r81577" How...

Re: Chrome freaking - breaking after update

Sorry, I'm no power user Linux guru. It all works well enough (Mint 8 KDE).... I hit the update manger now and then and realize some new Chrome thing. The icon changed, so something. Just updated to 11.0.696.50 beta this morning (via update manager). Got in gmail and thought it was "fixed"...

Chrome freaking - breaking after update

I believe Chrome was updated recently. The icon for Chrome is somehow different, simplified. Version 11.0.696.48 beta I'm in Mint KDE 8 Suddenly Chrome appears so far to work fine, until one tries to access gmail . Then it breaks with some idiot message asking if you want to "kill the pages&quo...

Re: How To: Google Chrome for Linux

An easier way - Go here: http://dev.chromium.org/getting-involved/dev-channel Scroll down the page until you see the Linux section, then click on the appropriate .deb package (either 32 or 64-bit). It will then install Chrome on your system, plus add the Chrome repos so it stays up to date. Thanks....

Re: newly installed apps not showing up in the menu

Should not be necessary to reboot, just run Code: Select all killall gnome-panel from a terminal to reload the panel and menu, and the entries should show up. How utterly strange. I did this and GnomeBaker and K3b showed up on the menu. However, later on after a reboot the items are not on the menu...
