Ok, this is driving me crazy. I've never had hibernate issues until I switched to LMDE. I blame this on Debian, however it should be easily fixable, yet I can't seem to get it working correctly. My laptop will hibernate but will not resume. Suspend and resume work, but not the resume from hibernate. Here is as far as the resume process gets.

I just enabled debugging for pm-utils because there was nothing of interest in the logs. I'm going to start sifting through that, but it's a mess. Does anyone have tips on what I might be looking for?

Yep, I know all about the beep and I've tried about anything to get rid of it on previous installations of debian-derived distro's. I've just installed LMDE (mate) again last week myself and I love the speed of it! It's also nice to have good old GNOME2 DE back. It's still nr. 1 for me.

I'm running LMDE and I was a little unhappy with the age/availability of packages.  I wanted Emacs 24, Qt 5 & Gwibber. So, I pointed apt at the Debian (Sid) repos. I'm getting daily updates now, and nothing has broken... yet.  It's been about 2 weeks.  Has anyone else tried this? Any problems?

I've read more people that had the same argument as you. They ended up switching to pure debian due to slow repository updates.

If I send feedback on G+ to Google, I cannot mark the elements that show the problem. Under Windows, marking works fine. (Yes, some things work in Windows.) Does anyone recognize this bug in G+ feedback?

+Kristian Wedmark Yes, Chrome on both platforms. Which is the Google browser one expects to work flawlessly with Google services. 

Although Google uses Linux desktops for development (Googbuntu), and Chrome OS on Chromebooks is Linux-based, they are not overly Linux-friendly. We are waiting for Drive for Linux for over a year(?).

Merry Christmas everyone !

I am going to upgrade my video card from an Nvidia GTS 250 to a GTX 560.  I am running Mint 14 Mate and the Nvidia 310 drivers.

What is the process for changing out a video card ?

Thanks in advance.

I think I will revert back to the original nouveau drivers first then install the card then add the nvidia drivers.

I've been hearing a lot about Cinnamon and Mate... Good and bad about both. I was wondering what the differences are? And if someone switched to one(or both?) from Mint LXDE, how they would compare each to LXDE in terms of menu set-up/placement, task bar look and feel, amount of visual effects(I have almost none), and over-all user control. Thanks!!
P.S. Normally I would Google this, but I think more people might benefit from a discussion :)

Thanks. As I noted in a previous comment, I was fortunate that Mint 14 included it as a standard in the distro.

I just got an ASUS Win8 laptop.  Is there a tutorial somewhere to get Win8 to let me boot to DVD long enough to install Mint 13 Maya for a dual boot?

So here's one for you..I install Ubuntu (or ubuntu-based) or even Mint 13..google chrome doesn't like working. I'll get the page that says the website can't be viewed and to check my DNS settings. A simple refresh and it works fine.

YET

If I install Linux 14 (whether Mate or Cinnamon as XFCE won't install for some reason and it's what I really prefer) everything works fine.

I guess I'm a Mint guy now.

Actually, looking back on this post, I think something like Arch would be a better idea for you (yes, I know I'm saying this in a LM community). This is because you can choose exactly what applications you want installed, and not have any extra programs taking up space on the disk or in memory. And you can install KDE, Gnome, Xfce, LXDE, Cinnamon through the official repos along with others through the AUR. You can do the same with any programming applications you need. Also, it's rolling release, so there's no need to download another install DVD a couple times every year. If you want to stick with Linux Mint, there's also LM Debian Edition, which if I remember right is also rolling release.

Does anyone of you use #Hotot   +hotot  as Twitter client? I love hotot.... but it seems impossible to me to upload Photos /Images. Neither twitpic, twitter, bitly or anything els does work???? Only a quick "uploading ..." shows up.. and that's it.... nothing happens. upload window stays on the screen. Does anybody know any solution for that problem? I don't think that I'm alone.

+Philipp Rieberer-Murer Sorry it did. I deleted the post afterwards but assumed the image link would remain. Using Hotot as a Chrome extension uploading of image seemed to work fine.

Can you install both cinammon and mate and swap between them? I originally installed Linux Mint 14 Mate, and then did sudo apt-get cinnamon but it doesn't appear to want to load when I choose it at teh beginning.
