update Thunderbird in Linux Mint 12.04 Debian (Xfce/MATE/Cinnamon)
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 16, 2012
How do I update Thunderbird in LMDE2012.04 MATE? Since installing LMDE1204, Thunderbird recommend I update to 12.01 but never could get it to load the update from T-bird and don't know how or where to put the extracted files if I download the zipped update from the T-bird website. Now T-bird recommends I update to 13, but still won't connect to the server to install the update.
Thank you for your consideration, I hope I haven't duplicated any already answered requests, I didn't find any but i'm new.

Ditches Fedora and Linux Mint XFCE respectively.
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 28, 2009
I've nothing major against Fedora, but it takes too much time to install (and darn, not automatic login.) I am almost the sole user of my laptop, so no needs for this additional security (of course, if your computer is used by multiple users, this is a different story.
Linux Mint in general takes up too much memory (My RAM is meager; just 512MB.) Well, I should admit that Ubuntu 9.04 loads up much, much faster than Fedora. One annoying thing about Linux Mint is the signature thing, though.
Themes are also much better in Ubuntu.
Using Dropbox as a drive
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 12, 2013
Is it possible to map Dropbox as a drive in Linux?
I have an android tablet (Moto Xoom 2 ME) with Quickoffice HD installed as a stock app. I can open a document from dropbox (or Google Drive, Evernote...) edit it and hit save and it saves my edit to the server. I'm sure it probably caches it somewhere but all I see as the user is dropbox being used as a drive with no manual managing of files other than hitting save in my office app. Skydrive on Windows 8 works similarly and again brilliantly with Office 2010 but not quite so well yet with dropbox (it opens but any edited documents have to be manually managed). This is great for some of my devices that have limited storage compared to my 52GB available on dropbox.
So the question is, can this be done on Linux? If so, how?
Unable to connect to the wifi in Linux Mint 15 (XFCE)
location: linuxquestions.com - date: September 23, 2013
So, I'm trying to install Linux Mint 15 (XFCE) for my brother, who has finally had enough of Windoze. Huzzah!
I got it to boot into the live CD just fine, however could not connect to the WIFI. As there was only 1 bar of signal, I naturally assumed that it was the signal strength, so I found myself a USB extension cable, and moved the receiver closer to the wireless router. This increased the signal strength to full bars.
It still, however, would not connect. I know I entered the correct password, but it will spin for a while in the bottom right corner, sometimes display a window prompting for the password, which is already filled in (and correctly, at that), before more spinning, and a message appearing top right saying that I've been disconnected.
I've tried resetting the interface using ifconfig, and tried to connect manually using iwconfig (though couldn't seem to get wpa_supplicant to cooperate, so this quickly fell by the wayside). However, none of these things work. How
Xubuntu 12.04.1 and Linux Mint 13 XFCE, which is more stable ?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 3, 2012
In July, Xubuntu 12.04.1 and Linux Mint 13 XFCE are going to be released. I would like to know which is more stable than another one because my parent are using Ubuntu 10.04, which is very stable but remains one more year support. My parent do not know how dangerous the Internet is (viruses, spywares, etc) so I chose Ubuntu. I want a stable distribution which doesn't show any bugs when I'm not at home and my parent don't know how to deal with it.
Thanks in advance.
Sorry for my bad English.
Had lost that lovin' Linux feelin' but it's back with xfce anyone else?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 29, 2013
I had lost that loving feeling with Unity and Gnome. And an interview I
read with some of the Gnome developers confirmed all my frustrations.
They wanted me to be frustrated. They want to control the look and feel
of Gnome and make it more uniform across users, and hence all the restrictions.
Gnome Classic is ok, but it's a compromise and doesn't give you all the control
back users used to have. This can't be done, that can't be done, etc. So finally
I just gave-up on them and installed the latest xfce and I am thrilled. The desktop
environment is mine again and I'm not fighting the system all the time...
Upgraded 12.04 linuximagegeneric now xfce won't start
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 30, 2012
Update manager had several updates for my Xubuntu 12.04 this morning but when I tried to install all of them I got some sort of failure message like "the daemon dies" or something similar. So I upgraded a few items on the list to see if it would take. Per var/log/apt/history.log:
perl (to 5.14.2-6ubuntu2.2)
dh-apparmor (to 2.7.102-0ubuntu3.5)
perl-base (to 5.14.2-6ubuntu2.2)
perl-modules (to 5.14.2-6ubuntu2.2)
libperl5.14 (to 5.14.2-6ubuntu2.2)
apparmor (to 2.7.102-0ubuntu3.5)
So far, so good. Next I installed:
Then I rebooted as instructed. After grub, I got the xubuntu splash screen for an instant, then it went to a shell and asked me to login.
Tried to execute thunar and got an error "Cannot open display"
I tried to execute startx and got a bunch of errors, maybe related to the nvidia drivers?
Update: I was able to get
