Yeah, nautilus-gksu isn't even in the repos available for install this time. There's a good chance it will find its way in one form or another into the final release, though, clem probably misses it as much as the next minter
Thank you for this thread. That’s all I can say. You most definitely have made this forum into something special. You clearly know what you are doing, you’ve covered so many bases. Thanks!

The desktop Cinnamon did not load on my machine, since it still needs graphics acceleration, so I loaded a desktop fallback mode that really works well. I found a great ugly bug in both editions: They have problems to connecting to the Internet, cost me several times using the Network Manager and I recognized the connection to the Internet, nor walked me using "sudo pppoeconf". Hopefully this is corrected in the final version should be borne in account that it is an LTS version.-


I've tested the internet connection both wired and wireless, and both work flawlessly. I don't know why it isn't working for you correctly. What kind of network card are you using? And is it wired or wireless?


In my case it is a wired Internet connection. Today I went to try the two versions and was able to go online, but I had to put the password over and over again until the Network Manager to accept me. What anger. Besides you open the terminal and run dear old command "sudo pppoeconf" and seems to ignore it completely. Please note, not installed, this bug is on the Live DVD, but with all the other versions of Linux Mint as both Kubuntu, Ubuntu, Xubuntu, etc., It was not. Hopefully this is resolved in the final version, since it is regrettable for a LTS. A shame because apart from this great detail really shows is a much more fluid and solid than the last version.-

A shame?
That pppoeconf is not installed in the live-cd doesn't mean that is not in the definitive installation:

You must remember that a live-cd or live-dvd is a very limited media, so it is impossible to pack everything a user could need/wish in such media, certain things are left to the definitive (hard drive) installation.

Are there any members trying LM 13 RC with an ATI-card? Somehow I couldn't get LM 12 to work on my computer....but is the situation improved now? I mean out-of-the-box and without doing difficult configuring in the terminal :)

@midas: It works fine OOBE on an ATI Radeon HD2600pro, either in LM12 before and after Cinnamon install or in LM 13 RC/Cinnamon.

Edit: (cf Desktop 2 in my signature).
Edit 2: I never make use of the ATI fglrx proprietary drivers - maybe were you wondering about ATI-fglrx stability issues ?

With the Cinnamon edition it could be a challenge. With MATE, yes, the ATI-card would work. If you did use the Cinnamon edition, the gnome fallback mode is quite nice for graphic cards that don't work with cinnamon. My suggestion would to try Cinnamon in the live dvd mode and see.
Edit: by challenge I mean that it could be, not that it will be. Some people have had successes, and for some people it hasn't worked.

OK thanks!! I think I prefer Cinnamon or KDE. So I will give Cinnamon a spin when it's final or wait till LM 13 KDE. KDE seems to me the less problematic with ATI-cards right now. Thanks again for replying :wink:

Yes, nothing's more effective than good ol' xorg-cism.

By the way, did you notice this: Linux Mint 13 Release Candidate is a Precise alternative (linuxuser.co.uk).

I found cinnamon too buggy with ati drivers so installed the MATE RC instead. I find it extremely stable. Also find xfce 4.10 very stable. Running with xfce, cairo dock and clock. No problems! Good job Clem and team! Kudos!

And yes, that's GIMP 2.8 you see!

I have a a ATI fire pro V4800 and it works great as long as i dont install the ATI drivers. I do have to use the terminal to set the refresh rate though since they took that option out of the display settings ( at least in Cinnamon ) Some reason it sets my refresh rate @ 30Hz on this 37 inch HDTV. Running xrandr in the terminal is a must do for me. Really not a smart thing taking the refresh rate out of the display setting , for sure can run noobs off if they cant set there monitor properly on the live CD or a fresh install.

Running great here, after using the PenDriveLinux installer to create a liveUSB setup (because the the startup disk creator (in Ubuntu 12.04) failed to produce anything bootable and the liveUSB Unetbootin produced was all kinds of buggy). The only issue I see is one that crept into Ubuntu 12.04 recently, which is the error "could not write byte: broken pipe" message just before the login screen.

http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=208&t=100690&p=580202#p580202

I am going to try MATE and see how it works. I really don't care about eye candy. I just need a solid OS that works.

I just wanted to chime in here to state that the fglrx problems are not unique to Cinnamon, but rather it's an upstream problem. I'm currently running OpenSuse 12.1 using Gnome 3 and Gnome Shell, and the fglrx driver has issues here as well. If Cinnamon is based on Gnome Shell, then it's quite possible that Cinnamon has inherited its problems with ATI's driver.

Hopefully this gets addressed either upstream, or Clem can find and squish these bugs himself, because I'm considering changing over to Mint w/ Cinnamon if it proves to be more stable than what I have now.

I installed Mint 13 Maya, added XFCE 4.10 and removed Cinnamon. So far its been 2 full days and its very stable and the performance is great. Nothing against Cinnamon or Mate but I feel XFCE offers more of what I am looking for.

Exactly. Maybe the problems are even coming from Clutter, as Gnome Shell and Cinnamon (in fact the Mutter / Muffin window managers behind them) use that library for (OpenGL) rendering.

Linux Mint 13 (64-bit) installed just fine on my desktop PC* but I can't perform any updates due to Ubuntu's "precise" repos being down or overloaded. I can't even get the update manager to successfully refresh since download speeds are less than 10 bytes/sec. Switching update servers doesn't work either since it's not Mint's repos causing the problem. Heh, this usually this happens on a new Linux Mint release because the Mint repos are choked. Not this time though. :D

I think I'll go the XFCE route too when I do my install. I have Mint 12 with Cinnamon on my laptop and it runs flawlessly but have had issues running Cinnamon on my desktops with ATI drivers. I still have a Mint 11 version running the XFCE and absolutely love it and luckily I have it until October of this year until the support runs out. Yes, like you said nothing against Cinnamon but XFCE has been around longer and is time-tested and IMO is the best DE out there. AS for MATE, that would be my second choice. Might go that route too, who knows. :)
