LinuxMint LMDE 6 Released

The Linux Mint team has released the latest version of LMDE (Linux Mint Debian Edition) and it is the most polished operating system in the Linux ecosystem! Seriously, this release now puts the question before me, as to whether even continue with this project! After test driving LMDE6 for a couple of weeks, I am still impressed but the Arch base still offers more choice and better driver support. So onward with DeLinuxCo!

Test drive it for yourself, I am thoroughly impressed by this release!

Hot Fixes

Some QT apps theming is broken after recent system update.

2023-June-29

If theming appears to be broken on apps that use QT5, remove the package “qgnomeplatform-qt5” but leave “qgnomeplatform-qt6” installed. QT6 apps seem to work very well with qgnomeplatform-qt6, but qgnomeplatform-qt5 not so much. It is better to just use QT5 Settings for QT5 apps.
Install the following packages if not already installed:

  • qt5ct
  • breeze-icons
  • adwaita-qt5

In your home directory, make sure you have a .profile file. If it is not there, just create it and add the following, if it already exists, just add it to the top of the file.

export QT_QPA_PLATFORMTHEME="qt5ct"

From the DeLinuxCo Menu search for QT5 Settings,
Set the settings to the different tabs as in the images below:

You may have to logout or restart for the .profile to take effect.


Shutter crashes when “right click” is used on screenshot image.

2023-June 21

Shutter 99.3/99.4 has an issue where “right click” on screenshot image will crash Shutter. The fix is in perl-glib-object-introspection library, version 0.050-2 . If it is not in the repo yet, you may manually install it by downloading directly from Arch Linux – Extra Mirror.

GTK apps take almost 60 seconds to start after system update!

2023-June 15

There is an issue with xdg-desktop-portal-gnome 44.1 upgraded from 43.1 causing GTK apps to take a long time to load, apps such as Firefox or Libreoffice.

Current workaround is to downgrade back to 43.1 and set “xdg-desktop-portal-gnome” to ignore updates.

Open Add/Remove Software (pamac) > Preferences > Avanced tab and click the + sign at the bottom to add “xdg-desktop-portal-gnome” to the ignored upgrades list.

For more details, read here: https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/xdg-desktop-portal-gnome/-/issues/86

If you already updated to 44.1, uninstall the package and manually install 43.1, there should be a copy of it in your /var/cache/pacman/pkg/ if not you can download a copy here: https://delinuxco.nyc3.cdn.digitaloceanspaces.com/repo/archive/xdg-desktop-portal-gnome-43.1-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.zst


Cinnamon Desktop Backgrounds Settings missing thumbnails

With the latest Cinnamon Desktop update to 5.8.4, an issue with the Background Settings emerged, where thumbnails will not show up in the settings panel.

The issue has been fixed and now we just have to wait for the fix to be pushed out. Fix 11746

In the meantime, you can change the backgrounds using Nemo file manager, just open Nemo and navigate to /usr/share/backgrounds/delinuxco , right click on the image you would like to use on the Desktop and “Set as Wallpaper”

Install Linux on intel iMac, MacBook or MacBook Pro

Do you have an intel iMac or MacBook that Apple no longer supports? Well breath new life into it by installing Linux!
You can try it out using live USB to see what works and what does not. As an example, we recently installed DeLinuxCo on a 2011 iMac and it works great! The only item that we did not test was the IR remote.

You may need to install a fan control application called mbpfan-git from the AUR in order to silence the fans of the iMac or Laptop.

Download the ISO HERE
Boot to the USB drive, usually holding the “Option” key at boot should allow you to boot from the USB drive.
If needed, upon installing DeLinuxCo, from a terminal run “yay mbpfan-git” and install the package. mbpfan setup…
