I'm runny Mint 4, KDE CE Beta 011 (or was it some other Beta number?) with all level 3 updates installed.
I have a problem with Amarok concerning mp3 support. It says unsupported format ("no suitable demux plugin" etc.), at the first attempt (and after uninstall, reinstall) gives me a dialog offering to install mp3 support - with no effect (no gui message, no console output, no mp3 support - nothing). So I ran "sudo amarok" to make sure it has all rights to install mp3 support. Result: suddenly mp3 DOES work. It still doesn't without root mode.
Any idea what's going wrong? Maybe access rights for some library??
Thanks for any help!
Off-topic, not too important:
- The nvidia driver install didn't work for me. As far as I remember, the install script complained about package problems. The installer from nvidia's homepage worked, but I had to edit xorg.conf. However, it messes up my laptop display (white with stripes), external monitor is fine. So currently, I use the nv driver if I need by laptop display. That one has other problems (despite being slow): screen change hotkey crashes the system, X doesn't restart (after logout or ctrl+alt+backspace). - I have a Dell XPS 1530 with an nvidia 8600 GT. - If you have an idea how I can improve things, please let me know. On the other hand, I can live with my current "solution". (Note: in Kubuntu 7.10 the driver installed, but didn't work.)
- "Sometimes" Dolphi is used, sometimes Konqueror. Intended?
Despite minor problems, I really like Mint. Have been using Cassandra before (old laptop), but just couldn't quite make friends with gnome (which I do like for internet and media consumption etc., but for productive work, I prefer KDE, which I also use at work).
