Re: Best Desktop For Linux Newbies?

i chose xfce and unity. xfce because it's light, customizable and noob-friendly. it should be able to run on any machine and do anything that windows xp/mum and dad distros do whilst having things like a trash-can etc as default, unlike lxde. i chose unity because many people i know use mac and uni...

Re: What would cause this?

Once you uninstall fglrx you have to reboot, then run the installer also, when the install is done run

sudo aticonfig --initial
then restart agian.

hopefully that will take care of it
it still comes up with the previous driver error try runing
sudo apt-get autoremove --purge fglrx fglrx-updates

Re: Will mint use wayland?

Ahhh okay, just personally i see X as the way to, because its tried and true in a sense. in other words don't fix what ain't broken. x isn't broken, and the reason ubuntu is switich to wayland is because of unity. I don't mean to push things but i see Wayland introducing unnecessary problems.

Re: Upgrading from Debian to LMDE regarding LXDE + wicd

I would think the best would be to simply do a debian stable minimal install then replace the debian sources with the lmde sources list


just don't quote me on this, I havent that method, its just an idea

Re: What would cause this?

That would be the older version I believe, as far as i know the newest version (12.4) is only on the ati, I'd recommend to try that.
btw nice graphics card. kinda makes me wonder though because 6700's seem to have almost identical specs to mine (5770).

OMGosh is that the windows Source Code!???? No wonder it doesn't work right. XD

do you have a ati/amd graphic card, because that may do it, if so just the newest drivers from the site they fixed allot of bugs in the new release
