I fixed the background not showing in isolinux also. New ISOs coming up today.

I'll ship with the default colors in the BETA. Depending on the feedback we'll patch mate-terminal or just ignore the issue.

 

clem

Yep, they don't know either.

Oh. Theme issues are something out of scope for me... maybe ask JosephM and raveit65 for help?

 

clem

I'll do all that for the next LMDE monsta, there's no need to do it right now.

We've an issue with mate-terminal though... the last commit I did on mint-themes-gtk3 on the 3.14 branch isn't good, it creates issues with Evolution. I need to revert it.

One more thing: mint-meta-debian-codecs depends on vlc-plugin-pulse which is a dummy transitional package (in both Jessie and deb-multimedia repos). So I'd remove this dependency.

https://packages.debian.org/jessie/vlc-plugin-pulse

I'd still remove gnome-session-bin just in case, and maybe policykit-1-gnome as well.

All other bugs fixed in upcoming ISO.

I left the evolution-data-server and other unecessary packages in there. They're no harm, we don't need the space right now and some of them have been lose deps in the past (I remember evolution-data-server-common for instance being needed without explicit deps in the GNOME 2 era by GNOME apps), and I can see in recent Mint releases gnome-bluetooth depending on it too.

mate-system-tools and mintwifi removed from the repos.

Fixed the page layout.

Need to remove mate-system-tools from the repo. They won't work in MATE 1.16.

It was requested at the forums as well...

 

Monsta

Interesting, mintwifi and several ndiswrapper-* packages are installed...

I see that mintwifi is not in 18.x repos, so maybe it should be removed here too?

Package mint-artwork-debian contains obsolete stuff:

/etc/skel/.mate2/README

/usr/share/linuxmint/mint-artwork-debian/panel.mateconf

 

Package mint-artwork-mate contains some wrong key in schema override:

No such key 'theme' in schema 'org.gnome.metacity' as specified in override file '/usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas/mint-artwork-mate.gschema.override'; ignoring override for this key.

Suggestion: update mate-themes to the latest 3.14.x version

There are some packages installed that aren't needed in MATE:

evolution-data-server

evolution-data-server-common

gnome-mime-data

gnome-session-bin

gnome-session-canberra

libebook-1.2-14

libebook-contacts-1.2-0

libgnome-menu-3-0

libgnomevfs2-0

libgnomevfs2-common

libgweather-3-6

libgweather-common

libphonenumber6

policykit-1-gnome

They can be safely removed.

Ok... now mate-system-monitor isn't installed, there's gnome-system-monitor in its place.

There's also some magic in debian-system-adjustments to make g-s-m work in MATE.

I suggest fixing all that...

 

clem

mate-system-tools replaced (also fixed some visual bug in gnome-system-tools services-admin).

 

clem

OK I just fixed the crash in live-installer.

I might need more info or a PR for btrfs support.

grub-efi looks like it's being added.

Afaik LMDE never ejected the live medium in the past. I think that's set in casper in Mint...

Reminder: need to replace mate-system-tools with gnome-system-tools.

Also remove mate-system-tools from the repo, they don't work in 1.16 anyway.

Something new... after installation and reboot (as prompted by installer), the system didn't ask me to remove the installation disk and press Enter. So it booted from the ISO again, and I had to choose to boot from local drive in the menu. This is in VirtualBox, but I don't remember it acting this way in the past.

I give up on trying to format the text properly, it comes out ugly anyway.

Reminder: installer still shows error dialog and then quits, if you tell it to not create any partitions on an empty drive (when there's only one drive in the system):

Traceback (most recent call last):
