Some features

Postby Openxworld on Sun Nov 11, 2007 4:43 pm

As webmaster of 2 websites I have to use (one more time) a new distro for the maintenance.

I choose 'linuxmint' Daryna Beta.021

What I'd like to see :

-add/remove in the start menu or mintinstall
- a better way to choose sources for repository
- the possibility to use Ubuntu themes for the desktop
- more "uptodate" softwares : for example Firefox is running version 2.0.0.7 and mozilla has published to major updates.
- in Ubuntu HPLIP is native, not in Mint
- Filezilla could be added
- mintinstall does not provide a lot of softwares as under gusty

Just a feedback....

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

MintInstall was designed to replace Add/Remove or CNR, but not Synaptic, apt-get, or aptitude.

Its just an easy way to install certain pieces of software, but obviously you can use other methods for more advanced/in depth software installation.

You should be able to use the themes from Ubuntu just use Synaptic to install them.
For Firefox we have to wait for Clem to have time to compile it.(2.0.09 was just released and Ubuntu needs to put it out 1st.)
I think HPLIP is installed just not shown in the menu.
I use FileZilla but not everyone does and the Live CD needs to be keep to size.
We have Facade47 working on the Software Portal.
He currently has a program to make it easier and he has add all the ones for Daryna.(currently at 81)
