The unofficial LMDE Xfce UP6 SR1
webworker has been so kind again to provide us with a mirror download.
The unofficial LMDE Xfce UP6 SR1 is out.
The following bugs were solved:
- Some cups/printing packages are missing and cups-pdf is giving problems.
- VLC looks ugly (default gtk theme).
- Samba shares don't work because of an empty /etc/network/interfaces file.
- The menu editor Alacarte is not always working as expected, but as long there is no good alternative we'll have to learn to live with it.
These are the live installers for the unofficial LMDE Xfce or you can download them from my homepage.
LMDE Xfce 64-bit (951 MB)
LMDE Xfce 32-bit (911 MB)
Don't forget to choose a repository mirror when you're done installing:
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get update
Device Driver Manager (DDM)
The purpose of the application is to facilitate easy driver install for inexperienced users.

It can also check whether you can upgrade your kernel to pae if you are running 32-bit on a multi-core system.
