I began using Mint 09 shortly after the RC was announced and have updated almost daily. Do I have to reinstall the final release or is the fully updated RC now match the final release.

There are only a couple of things that do not work properly. One is the "suspend" and "hibernate" functions on my HP dv2 which I realize could be a hardware problem. Both functions go to sleep - either with the function key or as programmed with the power options - but just do not wake when asked.

Otherwise it is the best Linux I've seen so far and I have been toying with it since way back in the dark ages - like when Mandrake and a few more were first available. About six weeks ago, a about the time the RC was announced, I stupidly deleted my Vista C:/ drive and thought, why not? I had already put Mint on it as a dual boot, liked what I saw, and so erased the whole drive and started from scratch. It is now the only system on this machine and I am as happy as the proverbial clam.

The two Window apps I had always thought I just had to have, Lotus Organizer and Quicken, are now running in V-box. Mail is all done on Google and so, it's a wonderful world. And after all these years.

Sorry, afraid I got off the subject - about updating the RC. Is it good to go as is or should I download the release and reinstall?

Clem,
Linux Mint is giving me the ****s. There is nothing to fix! I install it on all three rigs and it works every time. Been here since 4....can ya stuff something up just for me? Please. I install all three machines in about an hour. ClarkConnect caches the updates and thats my night done..... nothing left to do but drink beer and admire...

Seriously, well done again.

Copy and Move To options in context menu

Postby Pariah on Sat Jun 05, 2010 4:01 am

This is probably one of those things I could figure out if I had some sleep but at the moment I just have to ask the stupid question....

In Mint 9, which is great by the way, I like the new additions to the context menu..specifically Copy To and Move To..however the only options are desktop and home folder..I would like to remove these entries as I like to use PyExtensions for Nautilus..any suggestions as to how to go about it? I wouldn't think I would be the only one who didn't want them there, but I can't find any mention in the forums (or Google)...any advice and/or instructions would be well received..later, after some sleep :D

@saltyp

I think people can better express themselves without the profanties and vulgar language, especially using Gods' name in vain...If I was your mother, I'd wash your mouth out with soap. You show a deep lack of intelligence by using foul language....it doesn't make you look macho or smart, it just makes you look stupid...

I'm sticking with Helena on own computer for the moment. I'll probably try to upgrade (rather than reinstall) over the weekend.

Yeah, I actually got round to the upgrade last night. Unfortunately it borked something (really badly, wouldn't even reboot) and I ended up doing a clean Isadora install anyway. :lol:

No big deal, I have /home on a separate partition that I left alone, I just installed Mint 9 into a freshly formatted root partition.

One weirdness was that I had to re-add all the menus, window-switcher, workspace-switcher to the Gnome panel. Probably because I'd not deleted any hidden files in my home and they messed something up.

Very shiny.

Ummm...was that reply warranted in any way? I mean, do you think that slinging insults at someone else is a good idea, especially if that someone else is trying to advise another person not to use foul language? Look, how hard is it to respect the rules and to respect the fact that swearing and insults are not going to be tolerated?

Very nice for your very first post. Did anyone help you with the "big" words or did you type them all by yourself?

Haha well it was there when we posted. Just an abrasive post with a lotta foul language.

Wow, just upgraded to Linux Mint 9, been busy lately so I'm a bit late, and wow it just took about 10 minutes and I was back in with all my settings back, everything is as I left it, only thing I need to do is reinstall the software, which should link back to it's previous settings.

Awesome, keep it up Clem.

Yes, having replies standing in thin air is very odd :shock:
It would've been more helpful if there was a comment that a post was deleted because of foul language or something, rather than just deleting it wordlessly and then having replies that don't make any sense anymore.

I'm having a problem with this.

markfiend wrote:Similar to the upgrade path posted here for 7 -> 8, will this work for upgrading 8 -> 9 ?
Upgrading from the command line (faster):

Open a terminal and type the following commands:

* gksu gedit /etc/apt/sources.list (Change all occurrences of “helena” to “isadora”, and all occurences of “karmic” to “lucid”, remove the lines for the Community section of the Linux Mint repository, then save the file and close the editor)
* apt update
* apt install mint-info-main (choose “Y” or “I” to install the package maintainer’s version)
* apt install mint-meta-main(choose “Y” or “I” to install the package maintainer’s version)

In the terminal, repeat the following commands until both upgrade commands show no upgrades available:

* apt upgrade
* apt dist-upgrade
* apt install mint-meta-main



I used this to upgrade to 9 but having problems with login. Maybe GRUB problem? It shows command line login option (displays Linux 9 Isadora ... desktop login: . Any ideas?

Thanks

I don't think it's about censoring things but it's much more about just being polite to each other. I don't like to see swear words in any forum and I wouldn't like my children to see them either. If you think that believing in God is a superstition then I think it's sad.. but even if you do, please don't offend people who believe.

I think that your comment makes you look stupid. You should try to respect other peoples' belief even if you don't believe.

I really think that these kind of posts what you wrote guys just don't fit here at all and reflects negatively on Linux community.
