Not A Question.

Postby jokersloose on Mon Mar 03, 2008 8:41 pm

Hi everyone wanted to introduce myself. I'm James. I'm kind of new to linux. I have been running Kubuntu 7.10 on my desktop for about a month now. And wanted to try out a different distro and heard a lot of good things about Mint. So loaded it on my laptop. When I ran the LiveCD it gave me a few issues 1. No sound (still working on this one) 2. No wireless signal. However, once I loaded the OS the wireless worked. Also, when I loaded I had some "issues" with some of the fonts being to large to read. The username/password I typed, the fonts in Amarok. But once I got it on line and enabled one of the video drivers that fixed itself. So fare I have to say I really like the feel and look of mint. I really like the clean look of the desktop.

So sorry if posted in the wrong spot. Just wanted to say "HEY" and I look forward to learning Mint. :D

Maybe you should have posted this in the Chat section, but it doesn't matter. Welcome to Mint :)

Yeah, I posted this and "then" looked at the other forums. DUH!! Can ya tell I'm from the "NOW" generation LOL.

Thanks for the welcome. I have gotten some great help here. And I look forward to learning enough that I might be able to give back what has been given to me one day.

Thanks again,
James
