[SOLVED] How to boot directly into GUI mode with LMDE(Linux Mint Debian Edition)?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 19, 2012
Hello to all,
I was trying out LMDE on VB, and at first the GRUB bootloader went directly into GUI mode, but recently it has been booting to console text mode. I tried to change the default boot method bu changing /etc/inittab to put init 5 as the default. But it still boots into console text mode. Also when I type startx into the terminal, nothing happens, no GUI appears...
LXer: How to run Linux Mint Debian Cinnamon in VirtualBox
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 26, 2012
Published at LXer:
One edition of Linux Mint Debian released a few days ago, features two desktop environments – MATE and Cinnamon. The former is a fork of GNOME 2, while the later is an attempt to bring sanity to GNOME 3, to make it look like something designed for use on desktop computers. However, if you attempt to run it on older computers, those without 3D acceleration, or in a virtual environment using VirtualBox, you will very likely get this error message shown in the screen shot below.
Ubuntu 12.04 LTS versus LMDE (Linux Mint Debian) 201204?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 25, 2012
http://blog.linuxmint.com/?p=1979 I'm really having to ponder this one? Mate 1.2, when idle, really does use half as much RAM as Unity. That was a surprise, especially since I'm comparing 64-bit vs. 64-bit. I have yet to notice any of the rough edges and quirks that are typical of a Mint release.
Linux Mint Debian Edition
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 1, 2011
I've just installed and been playing around with linux mint debian edition, and wow am I impressed. It certainly lacks a lot of the polish of ubuntu or vanilla mint but it makes up for it in its performance. I don't know why it performs so much better than pretty much every other distro I've tried, especially ubuntu.
For example in ubuntu 10.10 and 11.04 the scrolling in firefox with smooth scrolling enabled is horrific and laggy (using catalyst 11.3/11.4 and oss driver.) in LMDE its just as smooth as in windows using both the oss driver and catalyst.
Compiz is generally FAR smoother too. Minimize animtions, general usage, doesn't have some odd artifacts like in ubuntu (in natty all the fade animations have this annoying white flicker)
Boot time is faster, applications launch faster.
Does anyone know what could make stuff like scrolling and compiz so much faster on my machine in this distro? I am quite curious as I have had these issues in other distro's too. Laptop's specs are in

I just installed a copy of Linux Mint Debian. I've already done apt-get update. I tried to install E17, but the ones in the default repos were out of date (0.16.999, latest is 0.17.4). Is there any way to get the latest E17?

XBMC Crashes Linux Mint Debian Edition
location: linuxquestions.com - date: October 24, 2012
I'm trying to run XBMC within LMDE. If I still it from the repositories or install it using the latest version from the XBMC site I have the same problem. XBMC runs fine, right up until I try and play a video.
When I play a video, I hear about a second of sound, and then XBMC crashes. I tried install Linux Mint (Ubuntu Edition?) temporarily to see if that would resolve the issue, but it doesn't. It behaves exactly the same. I asked over at the XBMC site, but got very little help. Does anyone have any ideas of advise me what information they'd need to be able to assist me?
Linux Mint Debian & Linux Mint Mate Gaming
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 14, 2012
I recently purchased an SSD and wanted to try a new filesystem out, so I chose BTRFS. I chose LMDE as the distro and aside from some install issues everything went well. Except for games...
I could not play minecraft or lone survivor. Minecraft downloads as a jar file and is open/run with jre and lone survivor is downloaded as a .deb file. I have tried to run from terminal with no success.
I installed the Mate version of mint which runs both games flawlessly, however is having issues with the BTRFS install I performed.
Anyone know of anything I can do to rectify these issues to stay with LMDE?
Thanks in advance!
Setting up a permanent classpath in Linux Mint Debian
location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 20, 2013
I would like to create a permanent alias for ANTLR (located in /usr/lib), but I don't know how to do that, because I don't understand which of those files (/etc/profile, etc/bash.bashrc....) I have to edit and I'm also a bit afraid that I could mess up my system when I edit files just by trial-and-error.
I have also one further question: I would like to append ANTLRWorks which is a Java application to the main menu and connect it to a GUI symbol. Right now it is installed in /opt/antlrworks2, but I'm not sure if this an appropriate location.
Thanks for any help.
Linux Mint Debian Edition theme
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 9, 2011
I really liked the look (theme) of the first Linux Mint Debian Edition: Linux Mint 201009 "Debian"
However, I am not a big fan of the metallic gray look of the latest edition: Linux Mint 201012 "Debian"
Does anyone know of a way to revert to the previous theme or where to download and apply it?
Thanks in advance.
