gnome-system-monitor

Hello all, Just today I went ti run gnome-system-monitor and nothing happened. I went to a terminal session and received a Segmentation fault. I booted a different kernel (I run Liquorix Kernel Linux 3.6.0-9.dmz.1-liquorix-686) and have been for about 3-4days with no problems. I logged in with Gnome...

Re: Cinnamon changes wallpaper when I run gksudo nautilus

Cinnamon hasn't changed the wallpaper, Nautilus did. If you run Nautilus, at least to my knowledge, it will manage the desktop. So if you wish to run Nautilus I believe it has to be run as follows: nautilus --no-desktop.
Hope that was of some help.

Re: Any way to center Cinnamon Windows ????

I did a Google search on 'center window in css' and found this .centered { position: fixed; top: 50%; left: 50%; } and inserted into the theme gtkwidgets.css at the Gtkwindow section Mine now looks like GtkWindow { color: @theme_fg_color; .centered { position: fixed; top: 50%; left: 50%; } } Now thi...

Re: Poll: Desktop environments

I use Mate and love it. I tried Cinnamon but found, not to be rude, disjointed. Go here for this setting, go there for another. No centralization. When you right-click on the desktop and choose Change Background, that's it. Nothing else, UNLESS you go for All Settings (I think). But if you click on ...

Re: Any way to center Cinnamon Windows ????

I 2nd that. Centering windows is an option in Compiz but since Compiz is not supported it cannot be done. I have written code that automatically centers windows. It is not that hard. To add as an option would be childsplay. Come on guys, add that feature. It will be welcomed I am sure.

enter password dialog is different than lmde

Hi everyone, When you choose an application, e.g. Package Manager, you are asked to enter your password. Well that's fine, but there isn't any option, as in LMDE, to keep the escalated privilege until logout, or in keyring forever, etc. I would love to have that option, but after searching high and ...

Firefox and LMDE

How do I install Firefox 6.0.2 into LMDE 201108 running XFCE 4.8 ?
I downloaded the 6 version from Mozilla and extracted to the /opt directory, I saved firefox 5, and when I click to start it fails with:

cannot find firefox-bin

and it's there.
Any ideas?

Re: Can't update LMDE

Whoops, forgot to mention that when doing the sudo apt-get upgrade, the next one you try will just report that it is holding back numerous updates. That is when you use the Update icon on the panel.
Apologies for messing up on the other post.

Re: Can't update LMDE

I had the same issues with update as well. However what worked flawlessly for me was; 1) sudo apt-get update 2) sudo apt-get upgrade It will report that it is hold back a slew of packages but no mind, just continue. Repeat steps 1 and 2 till you get less than 100 updates (I think). I know I ran the ...

Updating software that is not installed consumiing resources

I have a slight suggestion. I notice that when I am doing upgrades, as in right after an install, the update comes with applications that aren't even installed. This has to consume a fair amount of bandwidth as well as hammering the servers. My suggestion is thus, when doing a sudo apt-get update su...

I logged out and when I logged in, bam, problems (see attachment) plugins. I have uninstalled mintmenu from...

I have been using LMDE since early Sept. I have to say, it is great. Love every aspect of it. You guys have done a fantastic job. Kudos. Low memory usage, speed, great looking graphics, and I love that Mint Menu. It is so much better than the standard Menu. I have Compiz & Emerald installed and my d...

I am having the same problem running LMDE. Can't seem to find anything via Google either.
Maybe by posting my reply someone might see it along with yours. The more people that see it the better.
