Re: Flatpak version Nextcloud-client missing nemo integration

I'm not sure that can work. Flatpaks can't use system libraries or files. They can only use things in their own flatpak or in other flatpaks that they depend on (like runtimes).

Re: LM19 - missing packages

pdftk and libav-tools come from the Ubuntu 18.04 (aka "bionic") universe repository. Packages in universe are maintained by the community (not Canonical) and usually just imported from Debian testing or unstable. Often you can find answers to such questions by searching the Internet for "ubuntu 18.0...

Re: Fresh LMDE3 installation. Should I go for Legacy Bios or EUFI?

UEFI mode installs with GPT partition format which is much more more flexible and suitable for modern systems than MBR partition format likely used for BIOS mode. UEFI mode is often faster to boot. Generally I would prefer UEFI mode unless you are installing to dual boot with another operating syste...

Re: 4.13 Kernel Support?

Indeed. Either downgrade to 4.4 or move to 4.15. (To downgrade, install a 4.4 kernel if you don't have any installed yet, then reboot your computer and hold down shift key during boot to make GRUB menu appear and there you can select to boot the 4.4 kernel—you can then remove the 4.13 kernels.)

Re: LMDE3 - Install Complete MATE Desktop

not in Debian backports,.. but Debian Buster uses Mate 1.20. Note that Buster is Testing, and that can be a bit unstable. I use Buster Mate on a couple "non critical" machines.

Re: What does "acpi=force reboot=acpi" do ?

ACPI is the power management interface. Sometimes the BIOS advertises things incorrectly to the operating system and you may have to use such overrides as you're asking about to tell the operating system to use ACPI and disregard the BIOS. acpi=force enables ACPI if the default was off reboot=acpi s...

Re: What is protocol for Flatpak?

Are you using the LMDE 3 beta? That comes with native flatpak support (both in Software Manager and on command line). LMDE 2 does not.

Aside from that, there is no "simplenote" flatpak. You can view and search available flatpaks on FlatHub: https://flathub.org/apps

The problem is in the last line, where you start the sed command with a /. Remove the leading / to fix that line.

Re: Reinstalling OS

The warning isn't relevant. Remove the line starting with "/swapfile" from this file and save it.

Code: Select all

/swapfile                                 none            swap    sw              0       0
