I am running Mint 14 with Cinnamon on an older HP TouchSmart (Model IQ816 I think). My only issue is that I cannot get the speakers to play sound. The sound settings panel has a pull down field for Connector but the only option available is Headphones. This setting works fine. If I plug in a set of headphones they work fine, but this is a kithcen PC used by many, and it would be much more convenient if sound were played by the built in speakers.
Can anyone help ?
