date is separate from your shell, so unless you instruct your shell to modify the environment date sees, your changes to LC_TIME won't have any effect. You can fix this in two ways; either by specifying a value for LC_TIME only for date: LC_TIME=zh_CN.UTF-8 date or by exporting LC_TIME so its new value is given to all subsequent processes started by the ...

I expect library symbols will be different, even if you've got what appear to be the same versions in-place. As a half-measure, look for statically-built binaries; then you only have to worry about getting a myriad file locations all correct so the app stops complaining. In many, many cases, if not all, it's simpler to rebuild the app for the environment ...

You can use aptitude why <packagename> to determine why a package that was automatically installed. Here is an example of pulseaudio on my system: $ aptitude why pulseaudio i pulseaudio Recommends pulseaudio-module-x11 i A pulseaudio-module-x11 Depends pulseaudio (= 4.0-6~bpo7+1)

From what I've gathered from Mint's repositories, Mint 17 (Qiana) is based on Ubuntu 14.04 (Trusty Tahr), and instead of hosting everything themselves, Mint rely on the Ubuntu repositories to provide all the packages that haven't been modified by Mint. This includes base-files, which contains /etc/issue etc.; it seems that Mint installs the Ubuntu version of ...

Linux Mint comes in two flavors. Ubuntu based Debian based (LMDE) The Ubuntu based version (the default one) is guaranteed to work with Ubuntu packages and the LMDE is guaranteed to be compatible with packages from the Debian repository. Even though most debs of Debian works in Ubuntu it still some non-compatible packages due to File system hierarchy ...

I got these messages several times the last 6-7 months and always selected "No" on them, without any problems. The /etc/issue file is only used in the login message and/or message of the day, if at all, and not for deriving any other settings on the system.

Different applications have different font settings. In your case, it's not about Linux Mint, nor terminal. The font in your plotting is a default by R. To change it, use R function postscriptFonts(...) or pdfFonts(...) to change the font in output. Reference: https://stat.ethz.ch/R-manual/R-devel/library/grDevices/html/postscriptFonts.html

Try running the commands: grep nginx /var/log/apt/history.log nginx grep nginx /var/log/apt/history.log.1.gz etc (for whatever history.log files are present). The apt history shows what packages were installed by apt, so will show your package as long as it wasn't too long ago. To do these all at one shot, use (thanks to Stephen Kitt): zgrep nginx ...

There was no alternative as mintUpdate.py was GUI (gtk) only until I decided to write one. I described it in my blog - Linux Mint Update CLI You can find there link to gitHub as well. I will publish some screenshots as well.

I have a Macbook 2006 running linux mint 17. The only thing you should do is start 32bit linux mint live CD and from the installation manager to delete all partitions you have on your macbook and create a new partition to install linux. Then reboot and install linux mint normally.

Some xkb mappings have the non-breaking space assigned to a combination of key (for instance AltGr-Space or AltGr-Shift-Space). Some compose database also have a mapping (Compose space space for instance). You may be hitting one of those involuntarily.

Indeed, Geany is having an option to insert an alternative space. You can find the option inside the "Insert" menu and/or you can set a keybidng for it (inside the insert section of keybedings). In default there should be no keybinding set for.

As others have mentioned it's likely to a specific service or process, which you should be able to kill. You can start gnome-system-monitor as root to see all of the processes on the system and their CPU load. Instead of rebooting next time try a few things: Use the CTRL+ALT+F1 through F7 to switch to another terminal. This will cause your X graphics ...

The default directory for html seems to be /var/www/html and not /var/www. As per the comments on the page you link to.

To be sure that your machine generates a "core" file when a core is generated then you should confirm "systcl" settings of your machine. IMO, following should be the settings (minimal) in /etc/sysctl.conf kernel.core_pattern = /var/crash/core.%t.%p kernel.panic=10 kernel.unknown_nmi_panic=1 Do not forget to execute "sysclt -p" after making changes in ...

The message means that, for some reason, apt-get upgrade determined that it should leave those three packages alone. Generally speaking that's because upgrading them would break something else. You can try sudo apt-get dist-upgrade instead to see what apt-get does if you let it remove packages as well. You'll always be asked to confirm before a package is ...

In order to access my cell phone I had to install mtp-server via the Synaptic Package Manager on my Linux Mint 17.1 Mate. My previous Linux Mint 17 Mate didn't require me to install mtp-server, my cell phone was recognized automatically upon connecting via usb port. Maybe this info will help.
