I love the new Linux Mint 3.1. Had a small problem with it though. Booted from live CD, installed fine. On reboot, stalled on progress bar. Found solution was to use old win98 boot floppy, run fdisk /mbr and then install. Must be problem in overwriting the grub bootloader from Cassandra. I will leave it to the experts to figure out, just wanted to bring it to someone's attention. I really love the new artwork, it looks very professional and polished.
Kanishka: It's not a bug. They both use the same window decorations and all but with a different default background, one is green, the other is blue. It's meant to be that way. It's confusing because Gnome doesn't directly apply the new background when selecting a them until you press the related button.
You open firefox and go to http://www.linuxmint.com/software then you select the application you want and click "download", and "open with mintinstall". You can also download the mint file and double click it in Gnome to run it with mintInstall.
Does celena change the default Gnome settings for wireless? Cause the only distro that works ok with my wireless card seems to be Mint XFCE. It is the only distro that auto connects every time by default and doesnt require me to manually type in sudo iwconfig wlan0 mode auto to get wireless to connect. If this is fixed in celena I'll download it in a heartbeat but otherwise xfce rocks too.
I did try WicD in Mint Gnome and while I am technically able to auto connect it won't without the previously mentioned sudo command. For some reason my wireless has to be made to go to mode auto before it will connect to anything. In XFCE this isn't the case, it works all the time.
