Even wifi works out-of-the box.
Simply flawless!

Now a little "surprise": fallback mode resembling old Mint's Gnome2... and with llvmpipe as software rasterizer!

Beautiful!

Re: Mint 13 (Maya) RC out

Hello,

I am trying to install the 32-bit LM13RC Cinnamon on a Toshiba laptop with 2 GB RAM, a Celeron M CPU and video card is ATI Radeon Xpress 200M. After the screen of default language = English, I hit "Continue".

Then, the screen is a messed up view of horizontal black and gray bands. I can move the cursor arrow but that's all I can do for now. Nothing seems to occur next.

By the way, lspci -nnk shows the kernel drivers for video is "radeon" and "radeonfb". On this machine, I installed LMDE and LM12 without problems.

Please help! Thank you!

:(

Damn this looks good.

Just installed Mint 13 RC Cinnamon 64 bit into a virtual machine. I'm quite stunned :)

I'm having some issues with the display (for example time/day is not displayed in the taskbar) but nothing that serious.

WELL DONE! :)

P.S: I like the new Loginscreen ;)

Downloaded and installed the 64-bit MATE version. Everything just works. The proprietary driver for the ATI Radeon HD4200 graphics installed via the Additional Drivers (Jockey) utility with absolutely no problems. Brought my laptop temps down by 10-14 degrees. Chromium, Google Earth and Wine 1.4 all installed flawlessly through Synaptic Package Manager. Flash is working great. Very, very stable. This is a landmark release for Mint, being the first Ubuntu-based editions with dedicated Cinnamon and MATE desktops and following the Ubuntu 12.04 5-year LTS release.

Testing 64-bit MATE edition...

Wow! The global hotkey for mintMenu (Ctrl + Left Super key) works out of the box, right in the live mode! :D

This long lost and long-awaited feature is apparently provided by a new package named mintmenu-keybinder which has probably been packaged in quite a hurry. :)

1. The maintainer is Ubuntu Desktop Team, not Clem or someone else from the Mint team.
2. The section is GNOME Desktop Environment, not MATE.
3. The package has a weird file named "/..deb".
4. The package has a Bonobo server file - /usr/lib/bonobo/servers/Deskbar_Applet.server - but there's no Bonobo, there's MateComponent, no?
5. Finally, it seems the whole old deskbar-applet package contents has been packaged here. But mintMenu seems to use only the keybinding feature from it. All the search stuff in /usr/lib/linuxmint/mintMenu/plugins/applications.py seems to be written from scratch without using any search features from deskbar-applet. If I'm wrong on that or have missed something, please correct me.

I'm cautiously optimistic. After my initial optimism with Ubuntu 12.04 and its offspring, Ku, Lu, and Xu, on my computers over the past two weeks, Ubuntu 12.04 got buggier and buggier on my machines, nothing like the 11.10 and 11.04 releases. I'm hoping for some "Mint magic" to turn Ubu into a usable beast :-) So far so good testing Mint 13 MATE 32 bit, no issues so far. Will give this one a good workout before doing any full installs on my machines.

Yes. You could then select which you want to use at the login screen.

Alright, MATE edition RC is installed and works fine. A few issues:

1. Some of MATE's packages indirectly depend on libgnome-keyring0, including caja, mate-panel, some applets and so on, while only 6 packages directly or indirectly depend on libmatekeyring. Try to mark these libs for deletion in synaptic (or by using apt-get -s remove) to see for yourself.
2. Network Manager applet is written using Gtk+ 3, and its fonts, buttons, etc. look really out of place. Hmm... I've just realized that I have no idea how it was made to run as a mate-panel applet... :D
3. gedit-common is installed, and no packages depend on it.
4. mate-desktop-gnome isn't installed, but gnome-desktop3-data is (and these two are conflicting). Should it be so?
5. Despite everything works, mint-meta-mate and its dependencies (mate-desktop-environment, mate-core, mate-backgrounds, mate-themes) aren't installed.

Irregardless of anything else, it sure is nice to see Mint get back to its roots, MATE on Mint 13 has me feeling I'm running Mint 11 again :-) Only 13 is running a bit cooler, and perhaps a bit faster, but I think MATE on Debian may have ruined me regarding excellent responsiveness and speed with MATE. So far no bugs or issues, here's hoping Mint 13 MATE keeps running strong.

LM 13 RC is available

Postby aelfinn on Tue May 15, 2012 6:48 am

In case you were wondering, the release candidate of Linux Mint 13 (Maya) is available on the mirror servers. So far, it seems very fast, nice looking, and rather stable.

Just one thing that I noticed: in the Power settings, the setting for “Show battery status in the menu bar” doesn’t stick and the icon is shown permanently. (x64/Cinnamon)

In MATE Mint 13 I've been testing it out pretty good, shutting it down, restarting it, checking top to see that everything is running correctly, going through the apps, checking out the applets, ran update, I can find no issues so far and none of the buntu 12.04 bugs I experienced. So far no drama and very stable, everything is working like it should, call me impressed :-)

Yeah, you have to install mint-meta-mate, reboot (or maybe just logout) and then log in.

Beautiful!

Wait, so the fallback mode is customized by default and is using llvmpipe (why would it need to use llvmpipe?). Is llvmpipe letting you run 3d things without having 3d? Anyway, I'm really looking forward to trying this, but in the last 10 hours I've downloaded all of 539 MB :( . Hopefully now that all of the mirrors are synced I can download the MATE ISO faster.

Exactly!
-3D working without hardware acceleration (yes... nothing new, but now with llvmpipe is a lot more efficient).
-Fallback mode is customized to resemble Gnome2, or Mate.
