Hi guys, first of all, mint looks like a great distribution !!! i'm using the latest bianca kde edition. Before that I useD Kubuntu dapper, but I messed things up while upgrading to feisty so i've decided to install mint.
But here is the deal, when I installed mint to my desktop I had no problems at all. Everything worked just fine (internet, software, hardware...)
But listen to this, When I installed it on my laptop (a 2500 athlon xp) I had some problems (I run a dual boot, so I've formatted the ext3 partition and the swap partition after that I've installed mint)
Here are my problems this far:
- no mouse (I have a wireless trust mouse, while running the live cd the mouse worked just fine)
- Kcontrol crashed (when I go to kcontrol to set up the mouse, it just freezes)
- when I try the command "lsusb" in konsole, it freezes.
- no internet ( with the command "ifup eth0" I get the message "already up" but I cant ping to a website. (it worked fine on the live cd)
-Kpowersave, I see the icon but I cant change to another profile (performance, power save,... those options are not even visible, I can only see "report a bug, help and close" (it worked fine on the live cd)
conclusion, I'm encoutering a lot of problems that i've dont had on my desktop or on my laptop while running live from the livecd...
maybe if i can get my internet working i can just download some updates? can somebody help me with that?
strange problems is'nt it?
