Re: Solved? MDM will not let me log in

I filed a bug with KDE.org, but the problem may lie with the /usr/bin/startkde program which may have been written and maintained by the Linux Mint team. If so it needs to be fixed by them rather than KDE developers. I have worked around the problem by placing the paths I need in ~/.kde_orig/env/pat...

Re: Mint KDE 15

Those were my reactions when I read the post as well. I did not think the post deserved a response as the OP seemed to be sniveling. I have always found a work around to issues in LM 14 KDE with help from people on this forum. I am in no hurry for 15 as 14 suits me fine. When it arrives I will balan...
