for everyone lamenting the abscence of a x64 release, if you REALLY want it, kubuntu 9.04 does have a x64 release. Personally i love linux mint and prefer it over baseline ubuntu and kubuntu, but if that increase in speed is a big deal they have it.

And it is GOOD. Congratulations on some great work. After months of distro-hoppin' (got tired of PCLinuxOS after a year of happiness, since the repos were starting to grow small for me, and KDE 3 was starting to get old), and even going briefly to GNOME, I finally found a good implementation of KDE 4. Fedora I didn't enjoy since it has way too many fedora tools I don't really care about, and Kubuntu was ALMOST what I wanted, except that it had a nasty bug in music playback which would make it stutter for no apparent reason and that I didn't care to try to figure out. However, Mint has finally done it for me: a clean and well implemented KDE 4 distro (with the exception of Usplash theme, login theme and icon theme, which I think could use some more work...) :)

Thanks guys!!!

Dear linux mint buddies,

Should I upgrade the linux mint 7 with kde 4.2.4 to the kde 4.3 by using the mintupdate dist-upgrade ? Do I have to waste a long time by downloading the dependencies or easy manner? My broadband is fast - a cable broadband.
I appreciate your helpful hints.
cools.

I'm a fan of KDE but i need 64bit for programs i use. i've used Ubuntu, but i enjoy Fedora much better. my only problem is that the Fedora repositories are lacking in video/stop motion programs i require.


so my question is, as i think was asked before

is it possible to install the 64bit version of mint 7 and then add the linux mint version of KDE. (i'm guessing not)

also, if i added the Kubuntu KDE onto Linux mint 7 would that cause thigns to be wonky?

ps- i'm somewhatenewer to linux in general

Thank you very much to the Mint KDE Community for this gift!
I'm a proud debian&Kubuntu advanced user.
I will recommend from now linux Mint 7 Gloria KDE with kubuntu & Pardus to all my friends!
But I think Mint KDE is over the top of them!

I installed on a clean partition on my testing hd, near arch and openSUSE. Was perfect!!
Then I installed mint-meta-kde from the Gloria repository on my kubuntu jaunty (my working system). Usefull!

I have some ????##@things unclear@??? for the dist-upgrade when we'll go to karmic in octomber... Will I be able to keep my kubuntu+mint over the edge with all the ppa repos included? Will I be able to perfom the dist-upgrade?

I will see soon...
The freedom technologies are available!
I recommend everyone Linux Mint KDE as the simplest GNU/Linux distribution for the common user
and the italian Santech notebook, 100% linux compatible!

I am so glad for the new KDE released. I have preferred KDE for some time now, and like the way they are going with 4. Have avoided Ubuntu and its derivatives – call it personal taste, and yes, have tried various editions over the last few years – but this sounds like it may be worth a gecko. It may even give me back the eye candy I just lost (I *like* my eye candy) when my (reasonably old) laptop running Debian testing upgraded the kernel to the .30 range – at which I promptly discovered that the ATI driver (9.3) for the 9600 won’t compile and install (all my other beasties are nVidia, and no hassles with their driver with the upgrade).

Hello folks,

I need your help and I need it NOW :D

What I am trying to achieve is to boot Mint 7 form my thumb (the left one) as a live distro. However, it didn't quite happen as the instructions I'd followed: http://www.pendrivelinux.com/usb-linux- ... n-windows/ -- that's the guide I used. Got 4GB usb drive formatted as fat32; extracted the USBMint7.exe, then I copied the iso inside the very same folder; ran fixmint.bat - I went through all "press key" stuff under the windows command prompt and it was all done. All done, except that the ISO per se did not copy! My thumb was formatted as bootable, all the stuff within USBMint7 folder copied - everything except the content of the actual OS. What must I do, dear fellows???? :oops: :?

Hey guys, I love linux mint! I have converted two of my boxes and several friends.
To make it easier for XP/windows users to migrate, could you include windows keyboard shortcuts?
Every keyboard I have has it. I know you can create keyboard shortcuts somewhere, but if the shortcuts were already in the ISO install, that would be awesome!
Cheers for now!

Hi.

I am just now running the "standard" Mint 7 with Gnome installed. With this OS I am having problem with standby mode (like many else), has anyone tested this feature in the new Mint 7 KDE ? Does it differ anyway ?

Further, what does a beginner like me gain of switching to KDE instead of Gnome, is this system faster ? Is it just
a change of look and feel with the same stuff under the "surface"?

Well, there's a different set of applications, and most people agree that these have loads more features and aree generally better. A few apps, though, are more unstable than their Gnome counterparts.

Muzer,

As a new Linux user I have a lot of questions about Mint and Linux. Generally I think that Linux is so spread, there are so many distros and variants of it that the people developing can't really manage it. Why not slim down the choices and put focus on fewer items and get som quality instead. I have tried Linux before and has always returned to Windows because of bugs and so on.

I like the KDE Desktop i think its pretty sweet looking , but the only real 3 issues I'm having with Mint 7 at the moment is the sound issue ( it goes off sometimes)..also it does seem to run a bit slow and sluggish , plus it would be cool if i could run my Sony Ericsson and Nokia Mobile phone Software in it too , then i would be fine to dump windows and go Mint all the way ....:)
