I have not enjoyed my experience of Gnome 3 to date, and am having serious reservations about it still with LM12. Can anyone provide a little more info on the upgrade that might either encourage me to go for it, i will try it very soon when I have some free time, but I have serious reservations so far.

Does anyone know why I can't get get 3D acceleration on my NVIDIA GeForce GT525M to work? I have tried repeatedly installing and rebooting with the two available drivers in the "Additional Drivers" application. It says the driver is activated and currently in use. But I'm still in 2D rollback mode. Any suggestions?
I'm running LM12 64-bit on a Samsung RC512 notebook.
I was curious if there is a reason why the Linux Mint 12 CD version didn't ship with any sort of office software installed. Was it intentional due to space restrictions or some similar factor? I thought that the 11 CD had LibreOffice included, but my memory could be failing me.
Thank you, and great work with Mint. It's by far my favorite distribution right now!
If you install Linux Mint from the CD, you're missing some applications and the multimedia codecs. You can install the missing applications by clicking on "Upgrade to the DVD edition" in the welcome screen or in "Menu->Administration". And you can install the missing codecs by clicking on "Install Multimedia Codecs" in the welcome screen or in "Menu->Sound and Video".

Downloading Deb now. Makes me sad.

Nothing is wrong with my computer and Mint 12 is slow on it, even Ubuntu 11.10 was slow on it. But Mint 10 flies on it, as did Ubuntu 10.04.3 and 10.10.

She's game, 63 years old, non-technical, and keen to switch from Windows Vista to a controversial new Linux.
The wonderful contributor "bimsebasse" over here - viewtopic.php?f=42&t=86813 - has been my saviour so far, although I really don't think it should be this hard to get a satisfactory desktop. My fingers are crossed for the future, but my own PC is sticking with Mint 11 for now.
