Hello!

Postby muninnhuginn on Mon Jul 12, 2010 8:55 am

I've had a couple of weeks playing around with Mint now. It's entirely rejuvenated my aging laptop's performance.

Apart from struggling to get my printer to work and failing to find a genuinely useful replacement for Windows LiveWriter-- for the blogorrhea ;-) -- I'm not doing too badly with the migration from Windows.

My eleven year old daughter's been so enthused that she borrowed the USB I installed from and has got our desktop Mint-ed too. She's been playing with Kturtle endlessly.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Hello muninnhuginn,
Welcome to Mint Forum :P
I'm not a blogger myself so I haven't tried it but Gwibber is installed by default in Mint9 - it may meet your needs
Have fun with Mint

Thanks for the welcome!

Gwibber's a tad basic for my needs (four accounts across 2 formats and three sites)--and my alternative to Livewriter in Windows was MS-Office, so I've got to look around for something different. I'm currently using FireScribe in FireFox (a nuisance as I'm generally an Opera user) but it does work for both LiveJournal + clones and my Wordpress-based blog. I've looked at BlogTK 2.0 as a possibility, but it doesn't at present do LJ. I'm sure I'll find a solution, eventually.

It's odd. I was expecting problems and challenges with the more specialised software--OED, Dragon Naturally Speaking, FrameMaker,...--but not with what I regard as a fairly common activity. My DH reckons it's because Linux users set up their own blogging software on their own servers rather than using other people's :-)
