Great release! I've been using the RC for awhile, and I hope it can be upgraded to the LTS through the Update Manager.

Thanks Again,
Dave

That is my understanding.

Hi, I had a problem with login as my password used a space and a character. It was accepted during installation but not at login :? I had to re-install and create analpha/numeric p/w. Seems thre may be others who have ran into this.

So far, I've made two discs, from two different sources, on two different computers.
Both end up at boot:

No joy yet.

no 64bit

pcmanfm doesn't have a select by file type option

no cli option for install to put lxde on top of 64bit install


it's not that i don't appreciate the effort.... it just isn't the thing i want it to be

On an old Pentium4 laptop, I'm running LinuxMint9 Gnome-edition (500MB RAM, 60Gb HD, 12Mb video).
Gnome works fine, just seems a bit heavy and slowing things (don't o much on it though except surf (FF& Chromium), read (pfd), look at pictures (Geeqie).

What is a simple way to get LXDE running instead? Just to try a "light" Mint and see if it's better.
SYSTEM: Linux Mint 14 [Nadia] 64-bit [Cinnamon]
KERNEL: Linux 3.7.0-7-generic (x86_64)
PROC: AMD Phenom II X4 840

GFX: MSI Geforce GTX-660 Twin Frozer (2Gb)
Graphics: nvidia 313.09 (xorg-edgers)
X-server: 1.13.1.901

The simple way is to install LXDE (if there's no meta-package, pick 'em all in Synaptic), then at your display manager (GDM, most likely) simply select to start an LXDE-session instead of Gnome. Note that LXDE also has a DM of their own now (LDM?). Replacing those things is always scary, but I can offer some reassurance that I'm running it at another computer (though it's running Arch, not Mint) and I haven't had any problem with that particular component to date.
