Re: LMDE 2 Betsy with Cinnamon 2.4

mintupdate got updated. looks like they removed the kernel selection feature instead of making it work. FYI for those that updated you can go ahead and remove mintupdate-debian and replace it with plain ol' mintupdate if you haven't yet or if it wasn't part of the upgrade process, i remember doing i...

Re: LMDE 2 Betsy with Cinnamon 2.4

It would be cool if a more current version of the stable nvidia proprietary driver was included. The one in debian is dated. I'm using 346.35 on my system which is the latest long lived branch version. I still hope compiz gets added to the betsy repo too. I might switch from cinnamon to mate if it g...

Re: LMDE 2 Betsy with Cinnamon 2.4

I can't get into the profile preferences though, clicking Edit/Profile Preferences does nothing for me, does it work for you guys? I also have to reenable the menu bar each time i launch it, that's annoying :/ Clem just fixed the first problem today and released gnome-terminal 3.6.2.1. Not sure abo...

Re: LMDE 2 Betsy with Cinnamon 2.4

Re: LMDE 2 Betsy with Cinnamon 2.4

For people having trouble with the upgrade... Pay attention to what's going to be removed, if there's an upgrade that's gonna remove a bunch of crap you use or take out your whole desktop environment or something then you gotta be selective about what you upgrade and not do it all at once. If someth...

Re: LMDE 2 Betsy with Cinnamon 2.4

Sorry Fred, I don't know any guide's for synaptic. Like everything else I learn from trial and error. Monsta, Betsy is beautiful. the team should be real proud of the work done in her. I've had stable release's of distro's not as good as this, and she is still in beta. agreed, being on top of debia...

Re: LMDE 2 Betsy with Cinnamon 2.4

I just started having something weird going on with my background too, computer freezes for a minute and when it unfreezes it has a different background with black bars all around it. Can you post a screenshot of it? I will if it happens again, but pretty much it just looks like it was choosing a r...

Re: LMDE 2 Betsy with Cinnamon 2.4

I tried it using the guidelines in the first post. I either came out with one of two problems: 1. I did nothing but run sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade after changing my repositories, and Cinnamon crashed at login. 2. I next (after reinstalling LMDE) removed Cinnamon with sudo apt-...

Got lots of cinnamon updates today. Idk what's changed though because I haven't experienced any problems since the few i fixed with the initial upgrade.

Re: Installing Cinnamon 2.4

Well, I just proved the value of backing up a system. Ended up crashing my machine and having to reinstall, so I don't think that this is the route to take. :D At least I had backups. Any other suggestions? Compiling from source code, or something else? Yeah it's not exactly a smooth upgrade path. ...

Re: suggestions for debugging slow logout/shutdown

I've experienced this problem at times too. It wasn't every time for me, but on occasion when I would try to log out or shut down it would hang for a minute before it did anything. I'm currently not seeing that problem after updating to betsy with cinnamon 2.4.3 (not recommended for the inexperience...
