I noticed the Betsy ISOs have gone into approved for RC. It won't be much longer now before we have an upgrade path.

Re: Upgrading kernel to 3.14/3.15 etc.?

I use Liquorix 3.13. It's fast and stable. I had problems with Liquorix 3.11- 3.12 with LMDE (breaks hibernation), but the situation is fixed in 3.13+. In particular, my version is 3.13.9-liquorix-lxc-20140414 Liquorix doesn't have everything for cgroup to support lxc, so I patched lxc support off t...

Re: mate-settings-daemon - apparent memory leak

which login manager are you guys using?

After encountering this issue too many times on my systems, I decided to uninstall systemd, but it takes with it gdm3. I installed mdm, but I get an error on bootup about Mint X being missing. I'm still able to log in.

mate-settings-daemon chews up all cpu after UP8

I noticed this happened twice. There are situations where suddenly mate-settings-daemon starts chewing up all the cpu cyles when the system becomes idle. It causes the system to become unresponsive, even trying to reboot becomes impossible. In both situations, I had opened up gedit in a "sudo su" se...

UP8: ipod Touch or ipod Phone won't mount

Since upgrading to UP8, I'm no longer able to mount my ipod Touch 2G 3.1.3 or iphone 3GS 6.1.4. Both devices used to appear as a mounted device when plugged in, and I could use gtkpod to sync to. Since the upgrade, when I plug in either device, I get a DBUS timeout error. The devices appear as unmou...

Re: suspend and screen lock issues after UP8

I just ended up adding a 'sudo pm-suspend' to an autohotkey script, then added pm-suspend to my sudo NOPASSWORD list. Now when I press shift+F4, the laptop suspends (in place of FN+F4). I'll just have to get used to the different key.

Re: suspend and screen lock issues after UP8

this issue is not the same as the one linked on github. there is no warning message and the suspend button works ok. when i close the lid, nothing appears to occur except the screen darkens and i am logged out of the session. the power remains active and the suspend mode is not activated. usually i...

Re: suspend and screen lock issues after UP8

ah thanks - yes i am using mate here. one of the comments in that bug tracking thread gives the impression that switching from mate to cinammon is simple... maybe i will do that for a short-term work-around. It is simple to switch. I remember when LMDE went from GNOME2 to GNOME3/Cinnamon/Mate, you ...

Re: VPN dead, etc.

Can you clarify "VPN"? I always have a checklist of stuff to immediately check after an update pack, to ensure my "criticals" work, otherwise I restore via backup pronto. I hate finding surprises when I come upon a need to run something that was working beforehand. Anyways, With UP8, my "VPNs" are w...

Re: suspend and screen lock issues after UP8

I'm having similar issues on my thinkpad X60 immediately following the UP8. Never had these issues on UP4-UP7. The suspend and hibernation keys do not suspend or hibernate. I disable the suspend on lid close normally, but when I re-enabled and tried it, it didn't work. It worked on UP7. suspend from...

Re: upgrade to UP7, loss of MATE settings and other settings

Upgraded another machine having installed the package prior to upgrading. I guess the benefit there is that at least the panel stuck around afterwards, even though the mintmenu, mate-terminal, mate-power-manager, notification bar, and even the clock applet all reset themselves to out-of-box configur...

Re: LMDE new installation gets hosed by first round of updat

Adding some of my thoughts as well. I have a lot of 32-bit only apps for work that I need on my system. I often ran into problems during UPs. When UP6 came around, I followed the documentation to move to multiarch, but I also created minimalistic chroot 32bit environment where I could install all my...

Re: LMDE Mate 64-bit hosed by UP7. CLI install of Mate theme

GTK+ 3.6 themes won't help you as the version of GTK+ in UP7 is 3.8. Mint-X theme is compatible with it now (make sure you have the latest version). Here's how to set the appearance from the command line. For example: gsettings set org.mate.interface gtk-theme 'Mint-X' gsettings set org.mate.interf...
