The main difference for me is how fast the boot-up is for the iso on a usb drive. I love how fast it is compared to a DVD.sysalice wrote:Hi,
Thanks telenux for your considered tips!
I am using lmde linuxmint-201204-mate-cinnamon-dvd-64bit.iso for an amd64 bit. Am booting via a usb rather than a disk - should it make a difference?
After logging out, it just would not let me back in..
I'd love to try the cinnamon version on lmde as my computer is a few years old, and not getting younger..
Is there a way, perhaps, to make cinnamon the 1st environment it loads on the 1st login..?
Well, for one thing, don't choose 'reboot' when you're using live media. Just change to the session you want and choose 'log in/out' or whatever the option is. See what happens.sysalice wrote:hi,
Yes, it is strange indeed. DVD/usb should not make a different usage experience..
Yup, I used unetbootin to make the bootable usb - like I do with other distros.
After I click logout, I get the screen that allows me to login again. I can choose a desktop environment, and have a reboot option.. Al looks pretty normal, though the reboot doesn't actually do anything..
I did download another iso, in case somehow the iso was corrupt - no joy either..
