Great to hear! Is there a way to get KDE from within Gnome like Kubuntu and just switch between them?

So where's Broadcom-STA? I've tried compiling it myself, but what a PITA!

A great big thumbs up to Boo, Clem, Exploder et al.

Just installed Linux Mint Gloria 7 KDE and it is working a treat straight out of the box.
So far I have had to do nothing except my video card - EnvyNg.

I am now away to play with Compiz.
Now am I going for a sphere, cube, or ? fishtank, gears ? choices choices . . . . . . 8)

Thank you very much again gents.

Can someone tell me how to enable wireless on kde? I have edited my connection and put in the info but it is not even searching for wireless. I did not have this trouble at all with LM7. Thanks.

Hi Robin,
Sorry for the dumb answer . Image . . but have you tried rebooting your router ? I'm an IT guy, and I don't know how many times this has fixed wireless problems.
The KDE CE Edition uses the exact same network manager as the Mint Main (Gnome) Edition.

If you still have problems, I would suggest starting a new thread in the Networking section in the Support forum.

regards, Richy

Hi Richy,

I rebooted and it still is not enabled. I ran hardware drivers and it recommended that I activate the very same driver I have on LM 7 but when I click on activate, it starts downloading but a yellow box with an exclamation point comes up and says "sorry." Lol. What does that mean? I really want to us LM kde if you can offer more advice on what I need to do. Thanks for your help.

Congrats to the team - I'm really enjoying using this distro. I arrived at Mint 7 via an early version of Red Hat, then Mandrake, SuSe, Mepis and Kubuntu, but Mint 7 takes the cake, even tho it's gnome based. I barely miss KDE now, only a couple of things like splitting windows, and being able to move/copy files via a right-click. :D

Why is that? What's different than Kubuntu? It can be burned to CD.

I'm Sorry to hear that. It's too bad there are still enough of us who can't burn DVD's and it difficult in many countries also.
hope they reconsider this one.
If Kubuntu can do it Mint should be able to also.
Just MHO.

I understand some things might have to be left to down load from Repositories. But that would be better than no way to install it.

Well, I downloaded and installed the KDE edition on my Dell inspiron 1525 laptop. Everything was ok.
I did the updates and I restarted the computer. Then I had a weird problem I also experienced on my desktop computer with the RC1 edition of Gloria KDE.
After the updates the system turns into Ubuntu. Weird...isn't it? Not even Kubuntu...

Maybe your KDE download came from the Ubuntu repositories.

The KDE I downloaded is Linux Mint Gloria, and I downloaded from the Linux Mint community editions download page. Direct download.

After that, I installed it and clicked on the update button on the bottom right. It updated, and I restarted.

I don't see how the KDE download would come from the Ubuntu repositories since everything I downloaded had to do with Linux Mint...

Every time I try to use the live cd and download the necessary drivers, everything is aborted and I get this message:

could not resolve archive.ubuntu.com

It will not allow me to enable wireless and it shuts down. Anybody have a clue?
