I've been tinkering on and off with Linux Mint for quite some time, and I've recently decided to give the KDE version some time on my notebook. Everything is going quite smoothly, it's one of the best KDE distributions I've played with
Now, I've been having some problems with certain small-ish things. First of all, certain GTK+ applications have an ugly, boxy look to them, kinda like certain classic X apps. Software Sources looks like this. GIMP looked like this for a while, but I can't reproduce it anymore... Anyway, I installed gtk-chtheme, but it crashes. Anyone know how to solve this?
Secondly, I was having trouble updating, both with the update manager and apt-get update. It seemed to get stuck in certain repositories, I unchecked http://ppa.launchpad.net/kubuntu-ppa/ppa/ubuntu
lisa main, and it started working correctly again, but it looks like a rather important repository
Also, a lot of the stuff I install takes a lot of time to get represented in the application launcher, and it often takes a reset for that to happen.
EDIT: It appears that mintinstall is giving me a hard time too. It now shows the splash screen, shows the categories screen briefly, for a few seconds, and then segfaults...
