VMware is a commercial product and can be downloaded from http://www.vmware.com ... as for the rest: they are in the repositories :lol: Maybe you have to adjust your /etc/apt/sources.list ... ? Please take a look at this thread: http://lt.k1011.nutime.de/forum/viewtopic.php?t=195

Of course it is ... or what do you think where I got mine from? :wink:

As for VMware ... I really mean VMware Server or VMware Workstation. Not that stupid player. There is a galaxy of differences between these products :wink: And VMware Server and VMware Workstation are commercial products and definitely not in the repos :wink: The basic version of VMware Server is "free" as in "free beer" though, the rest costs money.

yeah.. yeah... :roll:

OK, since we were talking about Amarok and cool ways to listen to music, check that out: http://www.finetune.com/wii/player.html

It's made for the nintendo Wii, but since it's in Flash you can use it in Linux Mint :) Definitely one of the cool way to listen to online music.

I love the interface though. It's like a jukebox... from within the wii in your sitting room on the plasma screen, streaming wirelessly, remote control in your hand..

Yet another nerdy dream come true :)

I personally use http://www.pandora.com .. This one is implemented in Flash too I think. In theory it's only open to citizens of the USA, and so they ask for your US postal code ... Oh well ... armed with Google and with a little creativity :wink: ...

The cool thing about pandora is that you can tell it what music you like and it will search for similar pieces and artists. It's pretty good at that. You can create channels, e.g. one for Pop, one for Rock, one for Electronica, and depending on your mood you switch to that channel and you can leave it playing all day and night long.

Can you try that on your Wii? I wonder if this works there ... Would be very cool if it did 8)

Well the TV's taken right now.. :( Anyway, the interface is nice but it's not optimized for the wii. If the flash component could take all the screen and the buttons be made bigger...

The good old, real music Era.
That's when music was what it should have been today. :(

Hello, People!

The beryl feature in Cassandra looks like very good, but only for ATI Graphics users... :cry: On sabayon I learned how to working on NVidia too, and for it we must first switch from AGLX to XGL to have a full beryl-compatibility at Linux. On Cassandra i haven´t the feature to choise what i want uses (AGLX or XGL), so i please you to turn the XGL-Graphic the standard for all graphics or build a menu for changing it on the next beta release. And if somewere does not gone i will contact you imediately.

Sorry for my poor english, i´m not very good on it... :x i`m really sorry for some errors :?
And Thank you all for the hard work at one of the best linux distros i knows (Linux Mint) :D
