Re: Security and Privacy Forum

I would say this is a good idea, though some people might see this as a reason to screw the tinfoil hats so tight they aren't rational.

Advanced Partitioning in Linux Mint 16?

I am curious if we will be able to configure advanced partition schemes in Linux Mint 16 like many other popular distributions. For example, I do not think you can configure LVM and LUKS to work along side a Windows install, especially, if it is encrypted. The only way I understand that this is poss...

Re: Is Linux Mint Spyware/Prism proof?

I am curious why Linux Mint is considered so bad by Prismbreak, but LMDE is not. I understand that Linux Mint is based off Ubuntu, but I do not see how Ubuntu's Amazon Ware could effect Linux Mint. I assume that it is thought that anything based off Ubuntu could have leftover unreviewed code?

Compression forces matter closer together thereby increasing conductivity? But seriously, how to scramdisk.

Scramdisk

I am curious if Scramdisk is compatible with Mint 15? I have been having dependency issues when trying to install it. Any advice?

Re: Linux Mint 15 - AMD fglrx Proprietary Driver installatio

Thank you, Apolyon. I spent the better part of the day trying to install my ATI Radeon HD 5450. I had been following other tutorials and they all failed; they were not for Mint but Ubuntu. I would also like to thank everyone that contributed to this thread and those that listed their problems. Those...

Re: Mint 10 support hardware, Mint 15 not.

I have a similar hardware setup that I am trying to get to work. I am using the same graphics card and a wireless trackball m570. I absolutely must have the trackball working due to my disability, and I will need all the buttons to function to my specifications. Currently, I am running Win7 with syn...
