Re: Does Linux Mint get made fun of?

Heh. As if three quarters of the manpages aren't missing from a Mint install. And as if the way terminal commands work in Mint weren't sometimes radically different from how the Man pages describe them. Face it, the Mint Team just doesn't want people doing anything on the command line.

Re: Does Linux Mint get made fun of?

Mint Cinnamon is actually an excellent distribution and desktop for a savvy Windows veteran to start with. Mint runs smoothly and automates nearly everything. The KDE desktop is the closest Linux has to Windows 7, but KDE is infrastructure-heavy and less responsive than Cinnamon, which isn't that di...

Re: Blizzard Says it Will Support Linux if the have great de

You've probably noticed that, every time the Linux community finds a fix for the latest Wow Launcher problem, the very next Launcher update breaks something else in Linux. My view is that this is deliberate because, like most large software and hardware companies, Blizzard is totally in Microsoft's ...

different installation speeds and other stuff

On the same system, installing Mint 15 KDE x64 takes 18 minutes to a single-partition 320-gig hard drive and 8 minutes to a 10-gig partition on an identical 320-gig hard drive. The same graphical applications are present on both installs, both sets of initial post-install updates are 252 files spann...

Re: no $PYTHONPATH environment variable?

Thanks. Now, how do I make my personal snippet library accessible to Python without having to import sys and use sys.append.path? My snippet library is in /home/[username]/python/userlib. I also want to make python scripts in /home/[username]/python/bin executable from anywhere within my filesystem ...

Re: no $PYTHONPATH environment variable?

I did as instructed and "echo $PYTHONPATH" still returns an empty string. This comment from that file might be helpful, but I don't understand it: # ~/.profile: executed by the command interpreter for login shells. # This file is not read by bash(1), if ~/.bash_profile or ~/.bash_login # e...

no $PYTHONPATH environment variable?

When I first fire up Konsole, 'echo $PYTHONPATH' returns a null string. Is that because there is no such environment variable unless Python is running? I need a very simple BASH script that adds my personal code snippet library to any relevant path so that, whenever I run Python either interactively...

did I screw up my system here?

I installed Mint 15 KDE x64 and wanted to add a directory to the $PATH variable. This is the command I tried first: $ set $PATH = %$PATH% + /home/[username]/python That did not return an error message, but my $PATH as displayed with echo $PATH didn't change. So I tried this: $ set --help That return...
