Well done and--as always--worth waiting for.

Two small issues:
1) http://www.linuxmint.com/rel_felicia_whatsnew.php Still lists "Elyssa'" in header title, and;
2) No Downloads directory in home folder, Firefox defaults to dumping downloads onto the desktop.

This last is not necessarily an issue, but it deviates from previous Mint releases.

For 1 it does not help to have more that two eyes checking - I did not see it either :)
For 2 read the release notes at the end - we have made a change in "the making" of home so it could come from that.
But as you say it's no big deal and many prefer desktop I think

i can't seem to manage or add repositories. i installed ubuntu's software sources package to do so as i did in Elyssa, and when i try to run it it doesn't do anything or open. i also tried to do it using the Synaptic Package Manager, but clicking on Repositories does the samething - nothing.

i'm trying to add this

deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/openoffice-pkgs/ubuntu intrepid main

to my repo list so i can use OpenOffice 3.

-iceblade^, try manually editing your sources list.

Command "gksu nautilus", then navigate to etc/apt/sources.list and copy and paste in the repo.

I did what you are trying to do in Intrepid with no problems, so you should have similar results. :D

i do not know if it is a bug, but on my Laptop with a screen Resolution from 1280x800, FireFox start everytime to big. It start maximized but without the gnome-panal and without the bar on that i can close/rezise/minimize.

To get it back i must go with F11 in fullscreen and return in normal mode, than everything works.

Hi,
Surely Linux Mint is one of the best out there for desktop PC if not the best.
I'm not sure if I have to mention what follows here, but i give it a try.

1. One of the major things that I believe MINT should have as it persuade user friendliness in all aspects
is to add the back and forward mouse button ability to Nautilus, like Firefox already has it.
There are some simple scripts out there that are very small in size.

2. Conky , Conky, Conky.... It is just amazing what it can do... Simple, scripts can
make Mint to look Sophisticated, Comfortable , Powerful and in charge.
A simple RSS + some System Info ( Like Damn Small Linux ).

I think, the small well thought differentiations are what make Linux Mint so sexy,
and not BLAH like UBUNTU ( No offense to UBUNTU lovers, UBUNTU is great....)

I installed RC1 on Virtual Box 2.0.4 under WinXP SP3 EN.
After installation on mintAssistant I filled in root password and then on the next step I press button to see example of fortunes, then saw example, pressed one more time and then it hangs up.

Can you also integrate VirtualBox guest additions?

Not really "bugs", but I have a 1680x1050 monitor, and it appears the loading screen on boot with the progress bar is too small of an image. After about 1200x800 or so of the image being displayed, the rest around it is all black, so the thing doesn't fill up the whole screen. Also, when you click menu->shut down, all the buttons are big except for the restart button (using the Human Blue icon set).

Hi,
I'm using Felicia on an eeepc, the screen resolution is 1024x600. This is a problem for some applications like "mintInstall"... The software is just too big for the screen :(
Thanks again, Clem and the MintTeam for this Release Candidate!
See you soon.

At worst there will be an upgrade feature that will allow you to add new Felicia tools/features to Elyssa. Hopefully though this bug will be fixed upstream in time :)

Just been reading ubuntu forum posts, apparenty there are MAJOR problems with ibex concerning bluetooth. Hardly anyone can pair devices (not just mice & keyboards) or transfer files. I really hope this gets sorted too!!!

May be its just me but when I right-click root directory (i.e. / ) and select open as root I get an error message
Code: Select all
Could not find "//file". Please check the spelling and try again
even though it still opens it

The package mint-artwork-gnome in Felicia conflicts with the package gnome-themes-extras. This is the error from Synaptic:

Code: Select all
E: /var/cache/apt/archives/gnome-themes-extras_2.22.0-0ubuntu1_all.deb: trying to overwrite `/usr/share/icons/Gion/16x16/actions/bookmark-new.png', which is also in package mint-artwork-gnome


Not a show stopper. A mild nuisance at best. I miss my Foxtrot icons!
