Re: Lokking for advice from those tracking sid

Thank you for those other options. Siduction doesn't offer a preconfigured desktop that I like. Mate suits me as long as i can install pipelight flash and it runs flawlessly. Openbox also suits me for this purpose. If i have to build my ownsystem, i might as well pack it onto a usb and make my own d...

Lokking for advice from those tracking sid

There used to be sites to check the "weather" of packages in unstable. Are there still sites like that? Where are they? If not, how do you judge when to safely update packages?

USB automount when i plug it in on wheezy

for some reason this isn't working in gnome. i get a permissions error on my 1 terabyte seagate drive. It has a ntfs format. I don't have this problem in lmde - i just plug it in and it mounts right up. For some reason in debian wheezy in gnome it doesn't work. Some actual help would be great.

Debian wheezy. Yes i get an error about permissions. I don't need permissions in lmde. I just plug it in and it mounts. It's ntfs so i can share the drive with other computers.

why does usb not automount my 1 terabyte backup drive?

i am annoyed that I would have to be root to mount a drive on a usb port. Talk about ridiculous. Someone help me get over this ridiculous nonsense.

Re: .iso, .img and thumbdrive

Hybrid iso images are not always compatible with all systems. Problems with the bios something or other. If you want to copy to usb, it is always best to use img files. Though honestly, I have never had a problem with a hybrid iso image. Other than that I would suggest checking the md5 checksum of y...

Re: Flash stalls when moving mouse

You could try to download the latest 11.2 release. I wouldn't expect much though. Google Chrome however has peppe...

Re: Flash stalls when moving mouse

No that all looks fine really. I did a little research on your chip and saw it has intel hd graphics built into your chip and since you have no other gpu listed I assume it's what you are using. in synaptic there is an i965-va-driver for intel hd graphics sandy bridge (your processor). The descripti...
