This is becoming a HUGE
annoyance to me ...... is there someone in the LMDE community that knows how to cure this problem? I have updated, upgraded, and dist-upgraded using apt-get, my repos are pointed to LMDE and Debian testing as shown in a post above, so I know I'm up with any upgrade that MUD 1,2 & 3
might have contained.
I don't know which log to check (I tried 'cat' to read the logs, but I get nothing but gobbledey-gook), and since 'cat' didn't work I don't know the exact command to read the logs so I can post the results and hopefully find out what's wrong with this install or what's wrong with the box/monitor/hardware/video card/whatever, in the box.
The best place to cure an LMDE problem should be
the LMDE forums, but since there seems to be no one here that has an answer to this problem, I may have to take my complaint to an outside forum, or, in the alternative, go to another distro, which I have no desire to do. I don't want to re-install, because now I have my OS set up the way I want it ..... lotsa card & board games, all the apps I want to use for different things, etc.
Other than the load-up thing, LMDE is, without a doubt, the best distro I have used in the past few years, so I hope someone, whether here or on an outside forum can lead me to the fix for this curse that's on my install (s)
If it turns out that it's the box, video card or the monitor, rather than LMDE that is causing all this grief, I suppose I'll just have to put M$ Vista on it (got a COA for Vista Business), and give/sell it to someone else. I can't stand using M$ for anything but Netflix - I tried Novell Moonlight to take the place of M$ Silverlight, but Netflix wouldn't buy it, so I use an older M$ box to watch streaming movies on Netflix.
