I'm brand new to the forum but I have been using Mint for quite some time now, and very recently I've started to warm up to KDE with the KDE 64 Community Edition. Mint is a refreshing change from Ubuntu as it's better at giving me applications I'm more likely to use out of the box than Canonical "thinks" I'll use, and we don't have to suffer from Canonicals "deal making" arrangements with Yahoo! either but still get the freedom of their repository and access to getdeb.net and PPA's.
I would like to further tweak Mint however, I'm thinking of stripping down the KDE 64 Edition even more, swap a few applications over... preset some KDE specific defaults (like widgets, to include an Up button, turn off single click icons, etc).
I realize that Mint is created using the Reconstructor program (http://www.reconstructor.org/
) just like several other "derivatives-of" distributions are, although I think Mint still uses version 2 rather than the newer web interface according to Reconstructors author.
Are the project files created (including post-scripts) for use with Reconstructor for the Main and other Editions on file somewhere for download? If they are, then this would be excellent as I could simply import Ubuntu 9.10 on Reconstructor, load in the project file the Mint developers use to put together a distribution, edit a few things, and roll my own (for personal use only however).
Thanks for any ideas.
