Re: add-apt-repository

add-apt-repository works and is already in Debian.
Yes, but it doesn't work, so my question is...why is it even there? Moreover, most of the Debian community doesn't use PPAs. Sure, a few might exist, but since the aforementioned script doesn't work in Debian, why bother?

Re: add-apt-repository

add-apt-repository is merely a script developed sometime ago by the Ubuntu community. You can add this script to any Debian based system, but then I would have to ask why you'd want to do so since Debian at large doesn't use PPAs.

Re: Update Pack 5 release date?

@ Inokie Have you looked at Sabayon? I actually ran the same installation of Sabayon for three years before I jumped ship to LMDE! Sabayon continued to update without breakage. My only issue with Sabayon was the fact that Gnome 3 updates kept messing up my KDE / GTK integration. In hindsight, a rela...

Re: Update Pack 5 release date?

Guys, recognize, please, that Debian Testing is now frozen in anticipation of Debian 7. While I understand the need for updated versions of Firefox and other crucial apps, these will come to LMDE in due time. Don't give up on the project! Anyone wanting updated versions of Firefox and Thunderbird ne...

Re: Aggiornare free office

Well, you can either download the official RPM files directly from Libreoffice and use alien to convert them to DEBs for installation, or you can wait until the latest version hits the repositories.

Re: <SOLVED> I can sign into MATE but not into Cinnamon anym

Compiz is hardly being maintained anymore; hardly any distribution uses it by default these days. It's a shame because I fondly remember the good ol' days of Beryl. I do hope that Cinnamon incorporates additional Compiz effects; personally I'd like the cube and wobbly windows back. Also, it's a real...

Re: Are there ever any updates for LMDE?

You're not aware that Debian Testing is now frozen since the end of June. That means nothing new is coming into Testing from Sid until after Debian 7.0 "Wheezy" is released. Once that happens, a torrent of updated packages will flood into Testing as the development cycle begins anew. Another complic...

You're very welcome! My pleasure! :D Now, a word to the wise. Now that you're running the Liquorix kernel and home-brewed latest and greatest nvidia module, there are some care and feeding instructions. You will need to re-compile your nvidia driver every time the Liquorix kernel is updated or if Mi...

Re: 64bit LMDE + Nvidia Drivers = freeze on shutdown, logout

I always compile my own nvidia driver, that way I can use the latest one. If I were you, I'd update to the latest nvidia 302.17 driver. You might as well update your kernel too, since later kernels have better hardware support. I've been using the latest Liquorix 3.4.x kernel and corresponding heade...

Re: installing a new kernal

Hi JJ What I usually do, against recommendations, is to manually edit the /boot/grub/grub.cfg file. You can copy and paste the blocks to re-order kernel selection order, etc., or to remove kernels that you no longer want to boot (but still want to keep around for whatever reason.) I've never had any...

Re: installing a new kernal

It's a good rule of thumb to always keep a known-good kernel alongside any new kernels so that you can boot into a working system should problems arise with cutting edge kernels. This is relatively easy to do considering Apt will warn you if you try to remove the currently running kernel. That being...

@ craigevil 2) Never ever use Ubuntu PPAs with LMDE/Debian While this is obviously an excellent general rule, there are exceptions.

Re: Debian repositories falling behind with Linux kernels

The short answer is that I'm lazy! I use Liquorix because it's an optimized kernel that just simply works! What errors are you receiving with it, I have to ask because I've never seen any errors. If you would like help compiling though, I'm more than happy to assist as I've been compiling my own ker...

It looks like LMDE is like an afterthought in the Mint World. Stop being so dramatic! LMDE is for ADVANCED Linux users!
