The releases come so thick and fast that I've given up on this question. I had been running the Lisa Iso and was on the point of making Lisa persistent, when the Maya announcement came out. Just can't keep up No longer using persistence, just Firefox Sync and a simple shell script, a five minute overhead at every boot, but peace of mind. (Need uncomplicated WP? Just run Slax and use KWORD, etc.)RevLouM wrote:One particular thing I would like to thank you for, Clem...

The issue of "Do I need to upgrade?"
Would like to say that Mint 12 KDE doesn't hold a candle to Lisa, a bit of a disappointment.
After all the bad press for Cinammon, I started with Mate, found it onerous and finally gave Cinammon a go. In comparison Cinammon is smooth! No hassle with all the setups I need. Setting TZ relatively easy compared to Mate but not as easy as it was with Lisa.
Using Cinammon since 27th of May ...
- Sound properly initialised upon ISO cold start. NVIDIA GeForce 6150 SE
- VLC Media Player now a treat. No more problem with losing sound, or sound problems of any kind, so far.
Brassero no longer clobbers CD/DVD. This was the case before, when after burning the medium could not be read, could not be blanked, nor salvaged by K3b.
- Pasting from gedit to terminal lost if click on gedit after Ctl+C
- Gripes (Deficiencies)
- Screenshot does not provide a choice of whether or not to close its window. Screeenshot has to be invoked each time from the menu, and this is a bore when one wishes to take snapshots of a whole series of windows.
- Copying from file manager Nautilus of hierarchical filename to terminal not possible, have to go thru gedit and then only if the paste is altered by removing something like hierarchy of the file for example.
Nautilus copy: /home/mint/p1/kix/hme/Ka_2012-06-09.png In gedit strip path: p1/kix/hme/Ka_2012-06-09.png highlight, CTL+C and paste to terminal works.
- Salvaging Session Settings
Resetting lightdm doesn't work anymore, as can't be found. So when LibraWriter clobbered the desktop, and trying Ctl+Alt+<- proved ineffective, killing cinammon useless, managed to salvage the situation by killing gnome-session from Console 1.
