Re: Linux Mint Debian Edition User Guide

At the risk of being a pain, is there any chance we could get an offline version? I know I'm going to forget about this if it's buried in my Chromium bookmarks. You can create an offline version by yourself, by just downloading the website. Open a terminal and navigate to a folder of choice, e.g. y...

Re: 7 - 10 minutes to boot up?

Hi wb53tx; Thanks for your help. I haven't tried it on the desktop yet, but I believe I found the problem :mrgreen: :mrgreen: My wife's monitor was going out on her HP/M$XP, so she hooked up my desktop monitor (since I'm using the laptop) and used it.

Re: Sources.list (s)

Due to the lack of updates/upgrades because of the very busy schedule of the few devs LM has, I just did a CLI upgrade of my LMDE install using the sources.list posted above. When the devs are able to get the time to upgrade LMDE (after LM 13), then I'll change my repos back to LMDE so I can see wha...

It makes my laptop boot faster, haven't tried it on the Desktop yet, because I have to use one or the other, and I got tired of waiting for the desktop to boot up! Thanks for your help!

Is there some sort of log I can reference if the black screens happen again? You can look at log files located in /var/log.. I went to /var/log and 'ls' reveals this: log # ls alternatives.log dmesg.1.gz lp-acct ntpstats apt dmesg.2.gz lp-errs pm-powersave.log aptitude dmesg.3.gz lpr.log pycentral....

Re: Same Gnome/Gnome Games

I'm running the LMDE XFCE 64-bit version - it took some doing, but I have got some of the games installed (not the one I wanted tho), but when I updated the menus, it installed them to 'other' rather than 'games.' Is there any way to move them from 'other' to the 'games' part of the menu? As I was t...

Re: MintUpdate-Debian - is it now safe to use?

Update Manager now tells me the system is up to date, although still UpdatePackage 2 is used and UP3 is available. Actually, I'll defer to zerozero for the answers to most of your questions, but I believe that the reason that your MUD shows that UP2 and UP3 are still available is because you used t...

Re: MintUpdate-Debian - is it now safe to use?

@ bootmakr I've shortened my last post in order to make it simpler. I cut out the question about the correct updating sequence and saved it for later. Thanks for being so quick to share your experiences. I'll keep that in mind. Hi msbin ; My sources are the same and these work fine. I've commented ...

Re: 7 - 10 minutes to boot up?

Hi Bootmakr, Good it worked for you. If you still have Pulseaudio purge it and reinstall ALSA. Hi Spandey; I made the 'misteak' of trying out the MUD again, which sent me back to the blacked-out screen, sometimes as long a 20 minutes! I'm using ONLY the CLI (apt-get) for update and upgrade now, and...

Re: MintUpdate-Debian - is it now safe to use?

Due to another botched update (startup blackouts for 10 minutes or so), and, of course a subsequent re-install, I am only using apt-get update && apt-get upgrade for now, which is working fine for me. I'll be holding off on using the updater until all the bugs are worked out, since I'm not a compute...

I'm trying to download and install Gnome Games - because I want the Same Gnome pictured here . It is not available in any of the Debian packages, whether stable, Testing, or Sid from what I can see at the Debian Packages site.

Re: MintUpdate-Debian - is it now safe to use?

I think MUD is a good name for it, I belive it destroyed an install of mine! I'm a forgiving person, so I've re-installed LMDE with a different version, tried the Mint Updater Debian again, .... it's working as I type .... I'll see if I like it better after the update! I had forgotten about smxi, ha...
