i had this issue also on both natty unity and mint 11. i turned off compiz, place or and grid plugin, all was back to normal

from memory i think i installed fusion icon or something and selected gtk metacity over compiz and all was running faster and smoother.

but jees..kernel .38-8 was really cooking my laptop (fan was on most of the time and the heat was concerning) - i upgraded to .39rc5 and seemed to run alittle better

There is a power management related issue in Ubuntu Natty / Mint 11. The kernel developers and Ubuntu team are investigating this issue, and when they've fixed it, you will get an update to the 2.6.38 kernel.

http://packages.linuxmint.com/pool/main ... .0_all.deb => 404 not found

I have this issue when trying the "upgrade to mint dvd" option after install from live CD, it didn't let me to ignore this package and install other packages either

It's named 1.0.1 instead of 1.0. I think this is a mistake in a package list somewhere (I couldn't find it), but that may be solved soon.

You could download and install it manually. If the installer does not open when double-clicking, use right-click > Open With > GDebi (workaround for a Mint 10 bug that may be fixed in 11).

Thank you! I'll try that when I reinstall Katya tonight... I think I borked it in one day XD Just me messing around.

WOOOT!

Katya install, looking lovely and shiny and working perfectly so far.

I started out with Mint and went to Ubuntu to see what all the hype was about then they sprung the Unity card and I hated it. Not too fond of Gnome 3 either as yet but this will keep me ticking along nicely.

Great work guys, thank you!

I'm testing out the RC currently and for the most part it works, but I've found a number of flaws that weren't present in Julia that I'm hoping will get ironed out before the final release. Some may or may not be Mint's problem and there may be nothing they can do about them, but they all do add up to a less than perfect user experience. (I do suspect some of them may be from upstream changes made to accommodate Unity, but I can't confirm anything...)

Here's a link to the list on my hardware profile on the community website: http://community.linuxmint.com/hardware/view/5797

I didn't see anything in this thread about where to file bugs, if anyone knows could someone please tell us..? I'd really like to help Linux Mint be the best it can and filing bug reports is always helpful in that regard...

Mint 11 looks very nice as a first impression. However, one strange thing I have noticed...I cannot move any window! I am used to my cursor becoming a hand as I reach the top of a window and I can left-click to drag. All I get is a resize arrow (vertical arrow with a line across) that does nothing.

No similar problems with any other Linux distro ever installed (including many Mints) - so a tad puzzled here.

I am new to the linux world and last week tried Linux Mint 10 Julia Main and i loved the speed the most but the one problem i had was intermittent lag with the network adapter. Since then Linux Mint 11 Katya RC comes out and i wasnt to far into it so i reinstalled completely.

The internet issue went away and i was very very happy! But....when i startup i get a black screen after choosing from my booter *i have dual boot enables*

I have to shutdown my laptop manually then when i go back in the second time it starts up quick and easy. Other then a few non important packages not working it runs great just this startup problem.

I have installed it in Virtual box and it looks beautiful. I found that it runs a little slow in virtual box but intend on installing on a hard drive in a day or so. I also noticed that I am unable to install it side by side because it will not let me chose the disk I want to install it on. It wants to install it on my backup disk instead of the 80 gig I intend for it to be installed on. I am still trying to work the issue. This is only a RC so I am guessing that soon issues will be fixed :mrgreen:

Does anyone know how to get Mint 11 to boot from USB?

I get this when using usb-creator.exe which comes within the ISO:
[Error 5] Access denied u"F:\\ldlinux.sys"

The Mint 10 option in Universal USB Installer 1.8.4.6 does not work: Syslinux 3.86 is too old for Mint 11.
The Ubuntu 11.04 option also fails (and so does the Mint 10 option after manually installing Syslinux 4.04 on the USB):
vesamenu.c32: not a COM32 image

Did you try uNetbootin? It is in the repos or go to http://unetbootin.sourceforge.net/

Ok, I'll try that. Should I use the 'Mint 10' or the 'Ubuntu 11.04' option?

Edit. Using the Mint 10 option in Unetbootin, it fails to boot: invalid or corrupt kernel image. I've tried many times, checked the md5sum, verified the file with Transmission, and still it fails.

I am going to try burning it on a DVD (have just gotten some dvd+rw's that I can erase in case it fails).
