Correct spelling also helps others to determine what those thoughts might be.
PS: altair4, have you located any living Krell ?

It's flaky and very, very slow for xfce. It doesn't even really look like xfce, which I have running on 2 other laptops. If I had known it uses debian instead of ubuntu I wouldn't have installed it in the first place.
So I installed the mate version ... don't get me wrong, I like mint. That works much, much better. But it's still slow. Slower than windows 7 starter ( ). And, yes, I reduced the swappiness.
My solution? I installed xfce 4.08 on the mate version with synaptic. Better. Much better. It has the speed it should. I highly recommend it.

And, sorry, but xfce 4.8, installed through synaptic over ubuntu 12.04 based mint, runs rings around the mint xfce edition. There is just no doubt in my mind there.
To the last poster ... you may like thunar better than what came with mate, but try dolphin. Yes, it imports a slew of dependencies, but dolphin is extremely powerful. It will speed you up much more than the extra program footprint will slow the machine down. I will not use any other linux file manager anymore. Actually, I kind of think thunar stinks myself.
This has to be the worst ever mint release i have seen problem after problem if you manage to get it to boot properly you are lucky and when it does boot sometimes the sound doesnt work why do the develpoers insist on doeing so many releases they do the rich mans release's which is cinnamon and mate and kde and then the supposed light xfce.
