Thank you. Don't know how I managed to overlook that!

I realize that a lot of work has gone into this new edition and with all appreciation, I want to know what the advantage is of using this version VERSUS using Synaptic to get XFCE and adding that to an existing Mint installation.
I'm still learning and I appreciate your indulgence

I downloaded the ISO earlier tonight, burned the cd, installed it and here I am!
So far, really good I'm going to play for a while and get used to it.
Oh, one thing I have to learn is terminal commands..... I'm used to using 'gedit' in Gnome Terminal..... what is the equivalent command in XFCE Terminal?

I got a message saying it wasn't installed and to typegedit --help
so that's what I did. Good thing or bad thing? I've already used gedit to edit (successfully) /boot/grub/menu.lstsudo apt-get install gedit

After, I was watching the menus. Gnome-mplayer isn't insalled.
Whith "gmplayer" you refer "mplayer" (synaptic option) or that player? (nice, too, and I have problems whith default mplayer, whith this not, because I have a wide resolution monitor).
Whatever, I've "tunned" BETA 003, and I don't want to delete all and install Stable version. Can you put the new apps on the mint repo? We could download it easily, or in a .mint file.
Thanks and congratulations for the work, it's nice. XFCE 4evah!

It's taken a little tweaking but I have Compiz Fusion installed and running correctly at last but I am having two issues still.
1. My iPod (Fat32 formatted), will not mount correctly. It shows up on my desktop but I can not open it, if I right click I see the option to Mount Volume but it always fails.
2. I can not figure out how to add new icons. I have tried unzipping and copying to the icons folder but I keep getting a permissions error. I also have not been able to figure out how to get root privileges to this new file manager.
Any tips would be appreciated, thanks!
