Xfce looking like Gnome 2 ?

I have Nadia Xfce installed and customized it to mimic Gnome 2 as much as I could. Gnome 3 was ok, but not totally to my liking. Cinnamon had some weird quirks and Mate, well, it was ok as well. I installed Xfce and now my desktop is how I want it. Customized the themes, made it the way I want it. H...

Re: trouble on boot. need help!!!!!!!!!!

I know it has been a long time since you posted but I was looking for my issue and came across yours. You might try this. Open up Synaptic Package Manager and install BUM (Boot Up Manager) and then when you run that command enter password, of course, and check to see if LightDM is checked. If not, c...

Re: KDE vs GTK appearance

Thanks for the quick reply, but fonts weren't the issue, it was 'gui' part that was not right. For example, if you edit a gtkrc of any theme and mess up a line, say in the way you choose a color like "#c0c0c0c" That is a bad color, so when the theme is loaded you get an ugly gui. That's what was occ...

Re: KDE vs GTK appearance

Thanks for the reply and it was kind of disconcerting that no one replied but I understand why. Just a freaky thing. Yes, synaptic package manager is the one that is strange. Synsaptic, I have no idea what the heck that command is, by name anyway, but brings up the Synaptic Package manager. I have s...

KDE vs GTK appearance

I have for the most part solved all the odd issues in appearance, but, there is one area that befuddles me completely. If I, from the Run command, enter synsaptic (no idea what the heck that is but works) the appearance is fine. Now if I enter synaptic, a terminal window opens, shrinks down as in th...

Orphan packages in Synaptic

My warning to all ! Do not use/create the Orphan filter. I did and ran it and my system was hosed. Managed to recreate everything due to doing backups but now, I am back to the dang 'IPP tag cannot be edited' again. Still trying to resolve it and will persevere. Again if you do run the Orphan filter...

[SOLVED]/etc/rc.local not running at boot

I was reading up on the cgroup implementation. Here I thought is was for speed up only (about a year or so ago I read about this speedup thingy) and are they still required?

Re: /etc/rc.local not running at boot

I found part of the problem. Part 1: mkdir -p /dev/cgroup/cpu mount -t cgroup cgroup /dev/cgroup/cpu -o cpu mkdir -m 0777 /dev/cgroup/cpu/user the mkdir's were failing do the rc.local execution exited. I have no idea why the directories couldn't be created but they weren't so I created them myself a...

Re: /etc/rc.local not running at boot

While I have been using Linux for a fairly long time I am not astute at blacklists. I have BootUpManager set to not load Bluetooth so perhaps my rfkill is a bit redundant. I will check into the blacklist options. Now if I or you could just figure out why my rc.local doesn't load that would be great....

I checked the properties on the file and it is set to Execute. How could you disable it?

Re: /etc/rc.local not running at boot

The parameters work perfectly on my Toshiba with a SATA drive. I execute it at the root prompt and all params are accepted.
When I had one of them messed up before, running Nadia, I could see it on my console at shutdown.
It worked under Nadia but not LMDE.

/etc/rc.local not running at boot

I have hdparm parameters/sbin/hdparm -a1024 -B 254 -A 1 -M 254 -K 1 -P 255 -c 3 -q /dev/sda
and rmmod ums_realtek to prevent write errors but it appears that rc.local is not being run.
I am running LMDE 1204 with repositories set to Testing.
Any ideas?

Re: [SOLVED] ''(unknown IPP tag)' and cannot be edited.

Yes, I had seen that resolution here as well. I tried it and it failed. Perhaps it is just the Kodak printer(s) that might need cups-bsd.
Good to hear that your problem was solved. Wish mine had been that easy.

Re: [SOLVED] ''(unknown IPP tag)' and cannot be edited.

Perhaps LMDE has an issue with cups. All I know is that my printer would not work until I installed cups-bsd. Perhaps my install is a bit strange but now functional for printing.

[SOLVED] ''(unknown IPP tag)' and cannot be edited.

I was searching all over the net and really didn't find a resolution. I have a Kodak printer, yeah I know not well supported, but I kept looking thru Synaptic and for anything referencing IPP. Well it appears that cups-bsd is the package. I installed that and lo and behold, printer works perfectly. ...
