Hi, Clem

Sorry to bother you again but which software I should use for it? OpenOffice seems to be the right one but I am still puzzled on how to edit Table of Content and perform refresh or regenerate. The idea is to translate it into Brazilian-Portuguese.

Thanks,
Csat
Cheers

Hi Csat,

OpenOffice.org Writer. It should be in the context menu when you right-click the table of contents.

Clem.

Just thought I would mention that the user guide has been of help to a user on hardware central that has an interest in Linux.

The user had tried Ubuntu but was unable to run it from the Live CD. I suggested LinuxMint and provided a link so he could decide for himself. I asked the user for feedback because he has never used Linux and I would like to know what he thinks.

Anyways, it is nice to see the documentation is being used and that it is helping people!

Great work!

That's great exploder! I sent it to family in Michigan, one that has a business - computer and software support. There are apparently people that are showing interested in Linux and this family member is preparing himself to be ready for those customers as well. Now of course my hopes are that he will see how good Mint is and that it will prompt him to promote Linux Mint and grow more of a customer base.

Sweish translation ready for prof reading!

Postby Zwopper on Tue Feb 05, 2008 2:45 pm

So finally...
Here is the Swedish translation ready for prof reading - Rev 7

Swedish:
Jag vore tacksam om så många som möjligt kunde läsa den och leta stavfel och andra galenskaper, syftningsfel och andra hemskheter.
Ovan är en länk till PDF-filen, ODT'n var för stor att ladda upp med MintUpload... (24,5 MB)

English translation:
I would be grateful if as many (Swedish reading) ;) as possible would read it in search for spelling errors, and other mishaps!
The above link is to the PDF file, since the ODT-file was to big for MintUpload... (24,5 MB)

While translating to Italian, I think I found a mistake in a sentence. @ page 79,
Code: Select all
"Now click on some other part of the document to move the cursor somewhere else, and click on the middle button of your mouse (...) the text you previously selected has now been pasted."

should be:
Code: Select all
"Now move the cursor on some other part of the document, and click on the middle button of your mouse (...) the text you previously selected has now been pasted."

In OpenOffice, if you select text, then left-click to move the cursor, then middle-click to paste, you only get a "partial" paste. You must select and then just middle-click in the point where you want to paste.

Great job! On page 83 (of 86) the sentence under the screenshot that reads, "The Default service that accepts files smaller than 10MB..." should be changed at the end to "for a 2 day duration" instead of the current "for a duration a 2 days..." It's a really minor thing. Love the new manual!

I think instead of showing people how to use Manual partitioning, you should go through the three options. Most Windows users will likely want to just resize.
