I've been told that in my case it's a problem with the kernel version and my broadcom wifi card.
Perhaps it's the same for you?

Ya , maybe ! Wait for LM13 final release :-s

Installed 13/Cinnamon this morning and like what I see. I've seen a feel rough edges, the most annoying being printer setup finds my network printer but I can't successfully print. The printer setup dialogue seems to have missing pieces. It also tells me about services I need to enable in FirewallD, even though the firewall is not enabled. I assume it's the same package as on Ubuntu 12.04, where the correct printer is found after I point the routine to its IP address. That doesn't work on 13.

Two little cosmetic burps: Software Manager doesn't say "Installed" when it completes an install. Stays stuck on "Installing". Additional Drivers has references to Unity.

Compare them in release order to the alphabet. :wink:

Visually, Maya is looking really polished. I wish there were a way to drag the icons into the workspaces to launch them pre-organized. Ctrl alt up / Ctrl alt down for me is kinda clunky for expo and scale. It'd be nice if they were mapped to single keys so I could leave one hand on the mouse, ready select the app or workspace. Maybe i Just haven't found it yet, but is there a way to select the application or workspace when using expo and scale, so I could avoid the mouse entirely? More keyboard shortcuts please. Also, it bugs me that there is no up and down switching workspaces, only left and right. :/ I'm truly amazed at how much has gotten done by the Mint team in 6 months with the Main distro, but also all the hard work that went into LMDE too.

On past performance, the RC will upgrade to the final release. Personally, I prefer a clean install of a final and often find things to be more consistent with a final install than an RC > final upgrade.

I have installed the Maya RC MATE edition, and all went flawlessly, loving it. One question, probably asked many times, when the final release comes out, will I be able upgrade the RC release through Update Manager, or will I have to burn a new DVD, back up, and install the final release?
Thanks,

I've run into my first issue with the Mint 13 RC. After some updates today I notice that every time I come out of suspend the wireless will auto-connect and show connected like it should, but I have no usable connection. A restart puts it right again, but this is a big bug for me if it doesn't right itself. Note that I'm dual booting the same machine with SolusOS and do not have this issue with it. I think it had to be recent updates to the RC because it wasn't doing this before.

edit: now that I recall, this is an issue I had with Ubuntu 12.04 when I was testing it out. Same thing with wireless showing a connection but no actual connection. I was afraid the buntu 12.04 bugs would start showing up in Mint 13. Never had this issue with Mint 12 on same computer :(

Easytag seems to have some problems with linux mint 13 RC.
The tags are changed but cannot be saved.
Does easytag need some extra codecs to work propally?

Installed Mint 13 RC Mate edition last night on my HP Pavilion DV6.
No real issues except after installing the latest AMD Catalyst drivers from the website, I lost my display.
So I reinstalled and used the Fglrx package available in Synaptic and everything's fine now.
Added Jupiter and my machine idles at around 58c which is the same as I was getting on Ubuntu 10.10.
Also added the Gimp ppa so 2.8 is installed as well. :)
All in all, a very, very nice experience so far.
Many thanks to Clem and the team!

Have you tried opening localhost:631 (in a web browser), and configuring your printer from there? LM12 gave me similar hassles and the CUPS route solved my problems.

How do you report a bug in LM 13 RC? I registered and attempted to access the bugs forum, but it is locked.

Bugs on the RC you post as comments to the blog announcement, as stated there (please search first to see if somebody else already posted it). Bugs in the final release are tracked on Launchpad and GitHub (for Cinnamon).

About 24 hours of Mint 13 MATE. I have to say: This, by you, is a RC? Really? This is more stable, so far, than any final release I've tried since Mint 10. Everything installed, NVIDIA driver up and running (more than I can say for Ubuntu), and I haven't had a single problem- nothing, nada, not a one.
I went with MATE, after a lot of thought. I've tried Gnome 3 shell, Unity, and Cinnamon, and I honestly don't have a problem with any of them. I don't think G3shell is a disaster, and Unity is obviously not sinking Ubuntu, although Cinnamon is, I think, preferable to both. Nope, it's just that I think I've reached my "You kids get off my lawn" threshhold, insofar as desktops are concerned. I may change desktops in the future, probably when I get a new machine (probably a year or two away), but I prefer working in the Mint Gnome 2 environment. MATE is exactly that.
So, like I said, the RC? Might as well call it the final release, at least as far as my machine is concerned.
