Hello everybody :-)

Today i announce the release of a Linux Mint Debian Edition User Guide.

This User Guide is suitable to all new LMDE users that are searching for a comprehensive documentation about the Debian version of Linux Mint.
As you can see in the main page, almost all LMDE sectors are covered for an easy system try of a 'Live' session, installation, tuning, and customization.
I hope that i had made a good job.

Impressive. I like the way it looks like the control panel. Wonderfully done.

That's brilliant, I like both the layout and the content very much.
I always thought there should be a guide for LMDE too, thank you borgio3.

Wow, how cool is that?
Was it your idea to use gnome's control centre layout? This seems totally useful and cool to me.

Thanks for making this! I recently got a laptop with LMDE on it so it's definitely going to come in handy. 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. your desktop:

Code: Select all

cd ~/Desktop     # 'cd' is change directory; '~' is short for your home directory

Then download the guide:

Code: Select all

wget --recursive --level=4 --convert-links http://livelinux.altervista.org/Guida_LMDE/index_en.html

This will create a folder livelinux.altervista.org which you can safely rename or move to another location.
To view the guide's frontpage, open livelinux.altervista.org/Guida_LMDE/index_en.html.

You can usually create a shortcut to the file by drag-and-drop'ing it to a panel.

Sweet! I had completely forgotten about using wget to snag an entire website. I'm getting it in my Downloads folder as I type. As far as a bookmark goes, I already have it in my Chromium Bookmarks Toolbar but I usually keep the bar hidden to save screen real estate.

Make that two rounds I owe you.

/me wishes there were a LIKE! button on posts like the Ubuntu Forums had/has (it's been a while since I've gone there so I don't know what the current status is)

Fantastic! Not do i only have a magnificent distro to recommend newbies (LMDE), but now i can also direct them to this superb guide.

Right now, however, it really needs proof-reading from fluent English speakers.

Also, is it possible to make a .deb package out of it and make it accessible locally? Like Debian does with 'doc-central'. It would be great if i could advise a user to install a package called 'doc-lmde-guide' (or such) and view it with the exact design.

I'll try to do some proofing in a bit. Once some replenished craziness it whittled down again.

Can't seem to load livelinux.altervista.org/Guida_LMDE/index_en.html
... not even livelinux.altervista.org/

Is there another place where the User Guide might be?

Check out Evernote. (chrome extension, firefox addon)

borgio3, it looks great! I'm also happy to help with translation and proofreading. Is there a repository we can fork? :D

Thanks for the suggestion, I don't use apps like that. It would just be one more thing to keep track of on my system.

How does one get this user guide?? As above the links have been broken for days

That's odd. I just hit the link with no problem, Anthrogue.

The link works for me too. Try "incognito mode" in your browser to get a clean cache, maybe, and be sure you aren't blocking outbound traffic to 178.63.8.150.

See michelsberg's post: wget will tell you about the failure.
