Thank you. Best OS since LM13 :)

Rock solid on Intel z77, install was a breeze, there's just an alert sound on every bootup ( \a Ding!).

Very difficult on AMD 990FX with nVidia GTX 550Ti. Must be installed in compatibility mode, and enabling proprietary video driver reboots to a black screen. Is 990FX considered "legacy" or was linus torvalds right when he told nvidia to F-off ? :wink:

Thanks to all involved. Switched to 17 as soon as I found the RC release. Works great. Use it daily for surfing the net. Now I need to learn my way around it to get full use of this great OS.

KDE version seems to have been stagnated for a while.

Hi everybody!

I noticed there will be a respin (updated ISO image) for the Cinnamon version. This is good news.
Will there be the same for the MATE version ?

That would be a pitty!
Most issues being fixed in the Cinnamon edition by this update, appear in the MATE edition too...
I hope the team will reconsider this!

Thx konjad

As far as I can see the issues fixed in the respun cinnamon ISO are one's that, as a cinnamon user, I've already received updates to fix.. In other words it's simply the original stable with all more recent updates applied, as far as I can tell.

Of course, now I've said that Clem will add a new post to the blog and prove me wrong :lol:

You can't receive the updates to the installer (Ubiquity), and that's the reason for the respins.

lol, looks like they rushed LM17 and screwed up the final version so they need to release it again :lol:

Of course :oops: They've reworded the 'replace' option haven't they. I'd completely over looked that when I checked it out :oops:

There is a small problem in Mint 17 Mate.
When inserting a blank DVD, you can't define with which program to open it.
When you go to "File Management Preferences - media" you also can't select a program to open blank DVD/CD's with.

So to solve this go to your home directory. Press ctrl-H, then go to:.local/share/applications/mimeapps.list
There add these two lines at the end of [Default Applications]
x-content/blank-cd=brasero.desktop
x-content/blank-dvd=brasero.desktop

Now restart and return to the File Management Preferences. Go to "media" now you can select a program.
P.S. Maybe this problem is solved in update V2?
