I got a little bored so I installed Mint 14 KDE 64 bit a few hours ago. clean install over 13. So far it is pretty darn close to 13. Didn't realise I would have to reinstall conky and lmsensors. That's ok, done. Same for radiotray, I guess, not done. Hope I don't loose all the stations I accumulated. Memory use is lower, by conky. 13 was about 600 Mb at start and around 900 -1000 after Firefox was open for a while. So far, and right now, with just FF open mem use is 665. Definitely less. Played a video with VLC. Hoped it would be better. Nope. Screen blanked every 10 seconds. Had to reboot. Just a couple first impressions.
Here is the question. I see some small horizontal white lines, about 2 mm, right now in Firefox in the URL entry window, top left corner, and also in the search window to the right of that. 1 line in each. Sometimes, if I click on the K start menu I see 4 columns of about 20 lines. In other programs there is that line in text entry windows. There are more little strangeties, but I thought someone might know. All my system settings seem to be the same as before.
