Hello from Edinburgh!

Postby eversilentone on Thu Nov 01, 2012 8:54 am

Just a quick note to introduce myself. You can find a bit more information at http://www.jamesandrewknight.co.uk/about.

I'm new to Mint - less than a week! - but returning to Linux. I abandoned Ubuntu because I love to game but now I've managed to get Magic: The Gathering Online working in a virtual Windows machine, and now that Guild Wars 2 is released and works under Play On Linux, I think I'll try being a TuxGamer for a while. I'm obviously excited about Steam being ported over to Linux too!

I chose Mint because whilst I have no issues with Unity it just seemed that Mint worked better out of the box. That's not to say that I haven't a few issues (mostly with my webcam so far) but nothing that's major.

So thank you for welcoming me into the Mint family, I look forward to finding a place in this community :)

Hi James, welcome to the Linux Mint forums :D Thanks for joining the forums!

Be sure also to check out the Community website (tutorials, hardware and software reviews, ideas), and, if you picked the Cinnamon edition, the Cinnamon Spices website for adding even more themes, applets and extensions to Cinnamon.

You can also chat in real-time with other Linux Mint users. In the Mint Menu, in the Internet section, start the application XChat IRC. You will automatically get connected to #linuxmint-chat for general chat and #linuxmint-help for support with other Linux Mint users.

Have fun with Linux Mint.
