I hope our gurus will also visit this thread to help us newbies.
My first question (I know it is stupid):
how I can enable multiple desktops (if I can) in Mint.
Ubuntu and Xubuntu give me four desktops by default.
My second: Mint did not mount my NTFS partition properly It did mount FAT32 though). I can see the icon of NTFS partition on the desktop, but it is empty when I click on the icon. Other distributions like Kanotix and Puppy linux did it authomatically for me. What can I do?
3. I have installed emacs and xemacs. Unfortunately, the graphics and fonts in both are of lower quality than I am used to on university's linux server and when using cygwin under Windows on my laptop. Is it improvable? Probably, the problem is not Mint specific.
4. What I can do to be able to hibernate my laptop?
