Re: Question about ufw in LMDE 2

Crewp: As I said, I am still using LMDE1 and waiting a bit longer before upgrading to LMDE2. ;-) It does seem that your /etc and /lib are group writeable but I don't know why! If other LMDE2 systems have the same permissions then maybe this is by design and is necessary for the system to work. It co...

Re: Question about ufw in LMDE 2

Crewp: I currently run LMDE1 and these two directories have 755 permissions with the owner "root" and the group "root". e.g. ls -l / drwxr-xr-x 162 root root 12288 Jul 12 16:34 etc ... drwxr-xr-x 23 root root 4096 Feb 17 2014 lib Are your LMDE2 permissions and/or ownership different? Note that, with...

Re: [Solved!!] Firefox, Thunderbird 32 bit or 64 bit?

I think you will find that it depends on the version of LMDE you have installed - e.g. 32 or 64 bit.

Code: Select all

Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux i686; rv:39.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/39.0
Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux i686; rv:38.0) Gecko/20100101 Thunderbird/38.0.1
i686 = 32-bit

Re: Minimal Requirements for LMDE2

Thanks for the replies. My old computer is going to get tested. I do have one question: should I use a swap, boot (/) and home partitions or just the swap and home? It seems I am forever doomed to have this conversation over and over again! See " Partitions for LMDE " You need a root partition. The...

Re: Browser and Flash

xkazeshinix: I would try a new profile to make sure there is nothing in the old one spiking the Firefox settings (such as a dodgy extension!). Just close Firefox and then rename the (hidden) .mozilla directory temporarily and see if Firefox/Flash then runs correctly... mv ~/.mozilla ~/.mozilla_bak O...

Re: Browser and Flash

LMDE (original) runs fine here with Firefox and Flash, including adblock plugin enabled. The reported freezing may simply be down to network congestion. If a website server is overloaded or the subsequent internet connection to the user has excessive traffic then video buffering can appear as pictur...

Re: Audacity Update

mike acker: Your code snippet includes the dreaded phrase "install-audacity-206-in-linux-ubuntu"! Please understand that, although Ubuntu was originally derived from Debian, it has now diverged considerably. As LMDE is basically Debian with some Mint bells and whistles added, this means that Ubuntu ...

Re: Question to uname

Unfortunately, I believe Canonical/Ubuntu have a bit of a reputation for "doing their own thing" and not sending fixes upstream so that other distros can benefit. :-(

Re: Mount after log-in

Eddles: Autofs should do this...
autofs is a program for automatically mounting directories on an as-needed basis. Auto-mounts are mounted only as they are accessed, and are unmounted after a period of inactivity.

I will be interested to see how these packages will be pinned if they are also to be released for the wider Debian community (including forked distros) to use.

Re: when lmde 2 (betsy) will be available?

If this is finally possible: For years new versions of software got into Linux Mint first and were then ported to LMDE. We’re thinking of changing that. New software would get into LMDE first and then into Linux Mint. Then LMDE2 will rock! :) It may be me but I can't quite see how this will be cons...
