If you know which one you like best, you obviously don't need to install the other applications, however if you like choice, then of course you can install both. I will use the username falko in this tutorial. Please replace it with your own username. Download the Ubuntu 9.
Uncategorized mylinuxramblings As well as upgrading my PCs to Ubuntu The Linux Mint community have recently decided to add Debian as a base distribution in addition to Ubuntu.
Whether this is a planned replacement for Ubuntu as the base build is unclear.
No doube time will tell. The first thing to note with LMDE is the download takes up You get the usual requirements of setting your language and location, followed by keyboard type.
The first barrier I hit was the way the installer allows you to set-up your partitions. Being given a window with no partitions is fine, but then being given the only viable option to "Edit Partitions" by using GParted is far from ideal or even friendly!
So with my existing GParted knowledge I set-up two partitions when producing the screen-shots in VirtualBox I hit another problem, see footnote at the end of the blog and then created my main and swap partitions I then closed GParted and was returned to the "Please select where you want to install LMDE" screen where I hit Refresh, my newly created partitions appeared.
I then clicked Forward and the installation asked for my credentials and then proceeded to install. On completion and a reboot LMDE loaded.
Once you login you do get the normal Mint wallpaper and menus.
In this day and age, the behaviour of the installer is absolutely unacceptable. Especially when compared to the Ubuntu installer.
Especially, where you have a fresh hard disk with nothing on it see footnote. There is a recognised cosmetic bug with the GRUB boot loader in that the very nice background is overlay by a horrible blue box containing the grub boot menu, but this does not affect usability so is not a show stopper.
To be fair this is a known bug and is reported as such on the website. The need to do a Mb of package updates immediately after the install was something of a surprise.
But that is probably the cost of using Debian Testing and rolling upgrades. However, I did not expect to see Debian wallpaper on my login screen after the reboot.
I was initially shocked to see the standard Debian wallpaper, and though the updates had some how downloaded full Debian. However, on login the screen blanked and the standard green desktop and wallpaper of Linux Mint appeared.
Apart from cosmetic problems post installation, all seems fine.
Despite the installation woes around the disk partitioner, I like Linux Mint Debian Edition and await in anticipation for the next release which will hopefully address the installer usability issue and some of the "eye candy" in the distribution itself.

As Ferkelparade said, you'd need multiple frequency sources to get the overtones. Notice that the highest frequencies bend up over a longer time period than the root frequency. Also note that this siren has 2 separate whistles, overlapping in time.
