Re: Incorrect dependency for Thunderbird in CR?

I uploaded the fixed version--if you want it quickly, the debs can be downloaded in a 140 MB zip file here: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0BxE7wbgixC4GSEJYRmNPNWtidWs Thanks so much. Could you provide a fixed version for MX-14 as well? BTW, I don't see a little "thumbs up" anywhere. Ho...

Incorrect dependency for Thunderbird in CR?

Apt-Notifier and Synaptic both show the following Thunderbird upgrade: 45.0-mozillabinaries-1mcr120+1 --> 45.1.0-mozillabinaries-1mcr120+1 However, when I try to upgrade Thunderbird, I get this error: Thunderbird: Depends: libpango-1.0-0 (>=1.14) but it is not installable I checked my installed pack...

Re: Since the MINT hack, I've been wondering ...

To answer KernSpy's questions: - I have MX-14 installed currently, but plan on upgrading to MX-15 in due time (upgrading to a new OS running KDE is a rather long process for me). - My firewall runs in full stealth mode. - I use Firestarter (it's very easy to configure) - If "sandboxware" m...

Re: Linuxmint downloads links hacked via WordPress

Does anyone install an iso and install it without first comparing its md5sum to the hash code that's published??

Re: MX-15 - favorite KDE tweaks

Around February 2014, I posted a list of things I had to do in order to get KDE up and running on MX-14. I haven't attempted this with MX-15 64-bit as of yet because things are much too busy ATM, but I'll probably get around to it sometime in January '16. It should only take 15 minutes to get a semi...

Re: Where is the CD-ROM device on my system?

If asunder is looking for /dev/cdrom then you should point it to /dev/sr0 instead. The /dev/cdrom device used to be a symlink to /dev/sr0 but they "fixed" it by removing the symlink which breaks some default settings. I think they had to do this for the case where more the one disc drive ...

Re: Where is the CD-ROM device on my system?

For a GUI solution, I would probably try first Start menu > System > System Profiler and Benchmark (hardinfo) The CD-ROM device isn't shown in System Profiler and Benchmark. When I insert a CD in the drive, I can open a file manger and see the files on the disk. But I don't know what the mount poin...

Where is the CD-ROM device on my system?

When I launch asunder, it looks for a CD-ROM device under /dev/cdrom and throws up a message that says it can't open it. I can change "/dev/cdrom" in asunder's preferences to another location, but I don't know how to identify the CD-ROM device -- it's definitely NOT /dev/cdrom, because I l...

Re: Which version of MX-15 to use?

Why do you have the idea that is impossible/hard to install 32-bit wine on 64-bit MX (Debian), from what I understand the system changed considerable since I tried installing 32-bit apps in Debian years ago (and I guess you probably had the same experience) right now there's multiarch support, you ...

Re: Which version of MX-15 to use?

joany, Since 2007, I have always run a 64 bit version of Mepis, starting with 6.5 and only stepped down to the 32 bit pae when the MX was released. I always found the 64 bit ran faster on dual processors, Tri and quad desktop systems. I always used wine to run 4 windows 98se programs because the us...
