Re: 64 bits, panel on second monitor?

Is your second monitor a duplicate or extension? What panels are you using? The most versatile panel to configure and perhaps the lightest panel installation wise is Tint2: http://lxlinux.com/tint2.html. You can put them anywhere!

Re: Foxit Reader using WINE in LMDE 64-bit

Looking at the latest Wine HQ reports, it appears that later versions of Foxit Reader require later versions, like 1.5, of Wine: http://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.php?sClass=application&iId=4060 . I cannot advice directly because I do not use Foxit. Here is a guide for installing Wine 1.5.5: htt...

Re: mint 13 with lxde

You have many questions. I doubt if trying to answer every question before starting works very well. Better to let the questions and answers come as the problems arise. I will try to get you started.

Re: Olympus XD memory card - not mounting

If you don't mind installing additional software, gthumb is an excellent image viewer and has a camera photo downloader. I've seldom used it as pcmanfm has always immediately found my canon camera load with USB. Thread ended here 2 years ago. Split BigNewPrinz's report , posted 2 years later, off an...

Re: Mint won’t mount any USB device

it mounted after logging in, but with permissions restricted so files are read-only, which isn't much use.
Find the drive in /media, and change ownership to you. http://lxlinux.com/introduction.html

Re: Mint won’t mount any USB device

If they appear in the list of places in pcmanfm's left column, they should be mounted. Left clicking should open them. Are they formatted NTFS? That could cause a problem.

Re: LMDE install and updates

One quick question, if i install LMDE on my other machine, can i transfer the updates over? save me downloading them again? An alternative is to make a remastersys .iso of your installed system and then burn it to a disk. The disk can be then used to install the system (already updated) to any comp...

Re: how to install utorrent in mint LMDE?

If you have Wine installed, an alternative is to just download the Windows version and launch utorrent.exe with Wine Windows Program Loader. No installation is needed. With my internet I have found utorrent is much faster downloading than transmission.

Re: install minimal LXDE desktop

I have no experience with MenuLibre, but it appears to me to be more of a "Menu" than a "Menu Editor". I use Java for several programs, so it is a "must" on my systems. If you want to avoid Java (lxmed), why not just make your own template for .desktop files - the prescription of what is needed is i...

Re: Login Manager?

Sorry, I thought by "LXDE", you meant the desktop . The lxde package installs lxde-core, lxappearance, lxinput, lxsession-edit, lxshortcut, gpicview, lxterminal, lxmusic, leafpad and xarchiver. To get lxdm, the lxde-desktop display manager (log-in manager), you need to install it seperately. Gdm mus...

Re: Upgrading Mint 12 LXDE?

I have installed LXDE over all the Mints. The best one (fastest, most stable, rolls forever) in my opinion is on Mint Debian (LMDE). For an install recipe, see http://lxlinux.com/debian.html . I found it much faster than Mint 12 LXDE.
