Re: How Do I Upgrade to Linux Kernel 3.6.6?

Hi, Thank you so much for your response. I've tried Liquorix's Kernel and it doesn't have the drivers that I need. I've added deb http://ftp.debian.org/debian experimental main to sources.list but I can't work out how to install 3.6.6. Apparently I need to use apt-get -t experimental install <packag...

Startup Applications Missing? [Solved]

Hi all,

Just reinstalled Linux Mint Debian Edition on a new computer I've got, but it seems to be missing the "Startup Applications" application from the Menu. How can I install this application? It's not 'startupmanager', as that's a different program.

Thanks

On the Accessibility tab you can enable/disable the sounds that MDM uses.

Thanks for the reply, but I can't find anything like that in the Administration or Preferences section. :(

I've found a book mark which works around that most of the time, but some websites, despite using this book mark, it won't offer to remember log in details. An example of this site ...

Installing .tar.gz files and maintenance

Hi,

When you install something from a .tar.gz file, how do you uninstall it? How do you know when there's updates? How do you update the program? Is there a way to get aptitude to manage those files?

Thanks
