Hello from Portugal - Lisbon!

Postby Don Giovanni on Mon Oct 08, 2012 6:24 am

Hi all!
My name's Nuno and I'm a physics PhD student. I'm from the south (Algarve) but I'm living in Lisbon.

Most of the university computers have Linux distro installed (ubuntu) so I'm giving it a try in my own laptop.
Sometimes I have to write C and C++ code and it was awful to compile under windows.
I was recommended Mint so here I am.

Best regards,
Nuno

Hi Nuno, welcome to the Linux Mint forums :D Thanks for joining the forums!

Be sure also to check out the Community website (tutorials, hardware and software reviews, ideas), and the Cinnamon Spices website for adding even more themes, applets and extensions to Cinnamon.

You can also chat in real-time with other Linux Mint users. In the Mint Menu, in the Internet section, start the application XChat IRC. You will automatically get connected to #linuxmint-chat for general chat and #linuxmint-help for support with other Linux Mint users.

Have fun with Linux Mint.

Thank you for the nice welcome.

Olá Nuno!
By the way, we share more than mint usage. I think we share the same first name! :lol:

Thank you guys for the warm welcome and also for this Mint distro.

Due to the crisis my university made budget cuts so away with Microsoft Windows and hello to Ubuntu.
I enjoyed linux so I'm giving a go on my laptop. That's why I installed Mint.
So far it's been great and with improved power on speed.

I didn't find any driver for the fingerprint reading, though. Any help?

Regards to all!

It's better to open a new thread for that in the newbie sub forum with the relevant information (hardware, lsusb, lspci, inxi -Fxx, etc).
