Re: Synaptic is broken, please fix it

Hello Hi, altair4. Thanks to your screenshots I see, we are in fact talking about the disabled "mark for installation" options in Synaptic Mint 17. And I see why Rehdon thinks Synaptic wants to force a removal. "Mark for removal" is the only action which can still be selected. It never occurred to m...

Re: Synaptic is broken, please fix it

Hello, Rehdon. initially I thought there was a problem with Synaptic because it insisted in wanting to remove packages that could be updated when I clicked on them, after a little research I found out that this is intended behavior and not a bug. Could you be bothered to explain, link to the place,...

Re: Synaptic is broken, please fix it

what were your expectations? Click on package = mark for upgrade. I have to ask: have you ever used Synaptic before? Synaptic always worked that way when you remove a package. Even when you use a terminal command (sudo apt-get remove { packagename }) you won't get any detailed explanation. What do ...

Synaptic is broken, please fix it

Hi all, I finally got the time to install LM 17 Cinnamon on my main box and I'm generally happy with it, except when it comes to package handling tools: initially I thought there was a problem with Synaptic because it insisted in wanting to remove packages that could be updated when I clicked on the...

Re: Which LM is best for oldish laptop: 13 LTS or 16? [Cinna

Thanks for the heads up :) I must say the radeon driver is not yet up to task, at least for the stuff I need (loading of 3D models in OpenGL and a MMORPG game), good to know they're working on it. Do you think I should install the fglrx-legacy-driver instead of the current fglrx one? the latter is s...

Which LM is best for oldish laptop: 13 LTS or 16? [Cinnamon]

Hi all, I have an oldish Sony VAIO with an AMD Mobile HD3450 graphic card: it seems that the standard AMD proprietary driver doesn't support this card anymore, there's an AMD legacy driver but it's limited to an older, specific version of X Window. I've installed LM 14 Cinnamonon it some time ago, a...

Re: A possible solution for automatic security updates

Most security fixes are for packages other than the Linux kernel or the X.org server. You can review Ubuntu's security notices here: http://www.ubuntu.com/usn/. Those that are about the Linux kernel or the X.org server don't immediately or necessarily translate to being a security issue for you. Ma...

A possible solution for automatic security updates

While I agree with Clem that this is basically a storm in a teapot, and a wasted day of work on the latest RC, I realized that there actually is a security "problem" for Linux Mint security updates. Let me explain: what I've done so far was to apply all the level 1-3 updates, let the kernel, X11 and...

Re: GUI is not running after update

Even if the GUI is not running after boot, you can still login with your username/password and then start it by means of "sudo mdm": this will bring you to the login screen where you can login again and start Cinnamon. Very annoying, but I'm still forced to do this because I guess the same update we...

Cinnamon won't start after update to 2.0

Hello everybody, waiting for LM 16 I updated my current LM 14 install to Cinnamon 2.0 using the stable PPA: all went well until yesterday I updated the MDM display manager package as well, because now MDM won't start at all as a service and my box boots straight to the console; at that point even st...

Re: MDM not working (as a service anymore)

Sorry to "necro" the thread, but could you tell me what was wrong with those config files? Because I'm having the same problem, i.e. MDM not starting, after I installed Cinnamon 2.0 under LM 14.

Thanks in advance!

Re: Mint 15 Where: Cinnamon Settings; Window Settings?

Maybe your desktop doesn't give you the flexibility you want in specifying the way you want the desktop to operate, but that is genuine GNOME 2.x thinking. I'm afraid I've deleted the last GNOME 2.x partition from my disk, but iirc: no, it is not. The split normal/advanced settings had been rejecte...

Re: Mint 15 Where: Cinnamon Settings; Window Settings?

Just a small rant. I find the setting for normal and advanced mode a little pointless. It just seems to hide away some totally arbitrary settings and makes absolutely no sense to even have. I absolutely agree, to the point that I opened an issue about this (well in advance the final desing of the s...

Re: Cinnamon hogging system resources

Hi there,
are you using the 32 or the 64 bit version of Linux Mint Cinnamon? Since you have 6Gb RAM the latter should help.

I have the following hardware Memory 4GiB CPU Intel® Core™2 Quad CPU Q8300 @ 2.50GHz × 4 GPU GeForce GT 220/PCIe/SSE2 and Cinnamon 1.6.7 feels very fast and lightweight, even in terms of needed memory (177 MiB at the moment).
