Do you know about debdelta? It saves a lot of time with those big packages like libreoffice (and even with not so big ones).

Re: How to move to Debian Unstable?

1) KEEP your 'testing' lines in sources.list and ADD the 'unstable' lines. You'll need the 'testing' repo enabled in case you want to downgrade a broken package.
2) You need to install the keyring for the Opera repo. See: http://deb.opera.com/

Re: looking for mint-debian-installer information

If you understand the code you could download the source code and look at it

Code: Select all

apt-get source mint-debian-installer 
Otherwise you may email the developers (you may see its author(s) in the source code or mail the LMDE developers) and ask for help.

Re: Theme Brainstorming for Gnome3

secipolla, what icon set are you using & how did you get that dusty look in Adwaita? Looks very nice BTW, I rather like the background. The GTK3 theme is Drakfire-Caffe. I deleted some spurious files that were left inside, corrected the index.theme file and added the Human Brown GTK2 theme. The...

I didn't implement them ;-) (posted if someone wanted to try).
-edit- the gdm tweaker ran fine but I didn't change the ownership of /var/lib/gdm3/gschemas.compiled (without doing so it doesn't work).

Re: LMDE BREAKAGES - read here first - Update 5 august 2011

This thread should be removed from the 'sticky' threads and maybe even have its name changed. LMDE now uses the 'incoming/latest' repos and these 'breakages' don't reflect that.

Re: Debian Kernels (Solved)

Dear ghostdawg, the kernel 3.0 runs pretty fine here (plain old desktop). As any kernel it may work better with some setups than with others. Regarding kernels, the are two things to consider. If the one one's using works then there may be no need to upgrade (but to not receive the upgrades automati...

Thank

I use the Debian 'unstable' repositories. But I think kernel 3.0 will come to Debian 'testing' soon because it's been on 'unstable' for two weeks already.

Re: Where has Ctl/F gone?

Sorry for not helping but it seems it's something related to the key mapping maybe (like the ctrl+f could be triggering something else).

Re: Where has Ctl/F gone?

I mean reconfigure it in LMDE (with' dpkg-reconfigure keyboard-configuration').
But first I would install a light window manager (like openbox for instance) and see if Ctrl-F works there. If it does then the problem is with GNOME's configuration, not system wide.

Re: Where has Ctl/F gone?

Hmm, this looks to be something specific to your system. I never had this problem in Debian (but then I'm using GNOME 3, not 2).
Anyway, if someone using LMDE has this problem too then they will answer.

If you reconfigure the keyboard do you think it could help?

You could use the 'latest' pack which is pre-tested and pay attention to any warnings you get regarding the upgrades.

Re: LMDE vs. Debian

And if you do want to point LMDE to squeeze then better you get the old LMDE/GNOME ISO and change the sources.list to squeeze before upgrading (the Xfce ISO is already post-squeeze). But the Mint apps from the Mint repo will eventually break if you update them (they depend mostly on python and will ...
