i'm new in Linux mint and I want to try it (I come from Ubuntu)
I have a desktop PC. Windows 8 on it. (Gaming on linux isn't satisfying enough!)
And I have a second HD, which serves me as data stockage.
I freed 200 Go for Linux mint.
So, I've installed linux mint 14 (cinnamon 64 bits with codecs) in my free partition on my second HD.
Computer restarts after installation, I saw (for the first time! :O) the log screen of linux mint. I typed my username and my password. Black screen (and a message about battery state, little weird because I have a desktop PC).
I tried to connect using terminal (Ctrl + Alt + 1), and it works ... I tried to startx and it failed. I haven't the error message (I'm at work now).
Have you an idea about my issue ?
PS : my config : intel core i5, MSI nvidia GTX 660, one SSD HD with win 8, 1 DH with 2 partitions : one for data, the other for linux mint.
