Re: Radeon x1600 mobility drivers

Have you considered trying a real light weight DE like XFCE on this Mac? I'm presently using Mate and I can not reproduce such drastic CPU usage while moving windows or scrolling web pages (Nvidia graphics). BTW, have you checked if your graphics is using software rendering? I had quite an ordeal to...

Re: Radeon x1600 mobility drivers

I can't speak from experience with a Mac Book but one of my HP notebooks has a x1600 video card. Even with Mint 13 (Ubuntu 12.04) only the open source Radeon drivers were available. Graphics performance is pretty mediocre and the darn graphics runs very hot with the Linux drivers (it ain't an awful ...

Re: Sorting in Calc

You could try to change the numbering to leading "0" for single digit numbers, i.e. Matthew 7:1-5 ESV to Matthew 07:01-05 ESV. That way you should get the numbers sorted in consecutive order, at least for two digit numbers 1 to 99.

Re: MATE 1.18 updates

I have installed every Mate update since the switch to GTK 3.x. No real issues so far except, as mentioned in a previous post in this thread, the icon for YAGF in the "Open with" dialog box in Caja is still huge. It used to be also huge in the "Other Aplications" list in Caja but...

I haven't updated yet because of the different naming of the package.

Re: Linux Mint 13 reaches end of life in April

Just my 2 cents .... I was extremely happy with Mint 13 Mate. (Almost) everything worked pretty much out of the box on my dated hardware. Alas my move to Mint 17.3 Mate didn't meet the expectations gained from Mint 13. I had more hiccups, instabilities and odd behaviours with 17.3 on my notebook tha...
