Re: A little rant about fairness

Let's summarize: A handful of kind and helpful and brave devs gave us a new distro - based on *Debian testing*(!). They even admitted, that LMDE is an experiment, and that time will tell wether it works or not. Right. LMDE is not even a month old, but some, if not many users (with more or less skil...

Re: program disappears after updatin or installing other pro

I got rid of Google Chrome and installed Chromium from the Sid repos it hasn't disappeared on me. It seems to be a problem with the Google branded version.

Re: What are you going to do - Testing/Stable LMDE/LM 10?

Thank you for the clarification blowtorch. It is like I thought then. Using LMDE with Testing repos is really no more risky than using Mint 9 Isadora. I will continue to use both Testing and Clonezilla regularly and I should have a happy, healthy LMDE system. You'll more than likely be more happy w...

Re: HOWTO: Improve Font Rendering in LMDE

Not strictly for this thread, but very much font-related. Would this be the correct procedure for installing the "Microsoft fonts" package with LMDE? $ sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list Add contrib to last three lines: deb http://packages.linuxmint.com/ debian main upstream import deb http...

Re: What are you going to do - Testing/Stable LMDE/LM 10?

Guys ... don't let all the ghost stories scare you ... Let me clear the air here. Testing is very stable. Packages migrate from Sid into Testing once they have been tested ; If there are bugs in a certain package they will not migrate into Testing. :!: As far as this "floodgate" situation,...

Re: Custom Debian Script

I'm putting this here as a placeholder while I write the script so I can gauge interest. OK so here's the deal. Some people like making custom systems. However, it ain't the easiest thing on the planet. Also the process of spinning ISO's and building systems via chroot's gets very tiresome after a ...
