I previously tried the Gnome version of mint and was quite impressed, but lack of working ATI drivers made me have to pass. Tried the KDE version and the ATI drivers work, even have sound over my HDMI. One problem though, I can't seem to find a setting that will let me span my desktop instead of mirroring it. As it stands my install works, and I'm going to keep trying.
But if any one knows an easy way to change this preference, it would really help me out.
Thanks in advance.
