Re: LinuxMint 10 KDE problems *Possibly regarding Graphics C

Sounds a lot like what I have been experiencing , the problem for me was the intel drivers , adding the x-swat ppa and updating from there fixed it.

Re: This thing with Kernels... could use an explanation.

If you want you can try a live dvd of Mint 10 KDE , it seems it has kernel 2.6.35

Code: Select all

alexandru@Aspire-5720Z ~ $ uname -a
Linux Aspire-5720Z 2.6.35-22-generic #35-Ubuntu SMP Sat Oct 16 20:36:48 UTC 2010 i686 GNU/Linux
and see if your TV tuner works with that.

Re: web design

Hy!
I recommend you give Netbeans a try - it has some built-in html completition and a style builder , file browser is built in , but it is project based, and you can upload files through ftp with it , didn't see a shortcut but i think you can make one.
