Regarding installer, the error happens on the screen which comes after I select "install Mint alongside" another operating system. I don't have enough time to read the next scre...

! Kernel 3 cautions

Hi everyone, A small word of caution about Kernel 3 which is available in Debian's repository. I had LMDE break 3 times after I installed Kernel 3 and ran 'upgrade' and 'dist-upgrade' commands afterwards. The problem was that upon restart the system didn't go to the login screen but just hanged inde...

Re: ugly dialogs in gnome 2

Not sure if it's gcolor2 because it's just a color choosing tool but I ran the upgrade, then dist-upgrade and now the dialogs are consistent with the rest of the theme.

Re: Gnome3 for the experienced (FUN Stuff!!!)

Re: weather applet in GNOME 3? [SOLVED]

Hi, Don't worry, I've got my weather applet, in gnome 2 :) Had to re-install LMDE all over because there were issues compiling gnome 3 from source. Oh well, gnome 2 works great too, in conjunction with kernel 3 it runs just as fast as gnome 3 and with fewer bugs :lol: Thank you for looking into this...

Re: Gnome3 for the experienced (FUN Stuff!!!)

Thank you secipolla. Just a quick note that it's probably not worth it trying to install gnome 3 from source because there are a lot of dependencies which are not listed in gnome's ftp source site but are required for compilation. So it's very time consuming chasing after dependencies. Also, after I...

Re: weather applet in GNOME 3?

Hi, I've got gnome-shell but it seems incomplete or something like that. I've compiled 'gnome-shell-extensions-3.0.2' and installed 'gnome-common' but there doesn't seem to be any additional features in gnome3 after I applied these operations. I also tried to directly compile gnome weather extension...

Re: update problems

Hi, Thank you for the message. Yes, I had to re-install LMDE over but it's ok because I distribute important files over other partitions so no big damage was done.

Re: update problems

bump.

I still haven't found a solution to the aforementioned problem - can't use LMDE as it won't show login screen. Using openSUSE as a fallback until problem is fixed.
