I don't know what's the problem either :? Under windows I had no problem - after I changed the net card, I just entered my new settings and it was all well. In Linux however I did the same - no internet at all. The worst thing is, as I mantioned - I tried to boot from the Live CD and enter the setti...

I think this is in GNOME. I'm not sure where it is in KDE, but when I type

ping 208.67.220.220

So this is the internet connection at my workplace, which is a construction site. It's a sattelite dish, pointing to a near town. This is how it works, so I'm not sure what type it is. But when the people from the provider fixed the dish, they left me a note with the settings - I have to enter manua...

Network problem in kdeCE

Hi, I recently installed Mint kdeCE. My internet provider gave me settings for the connection (ip, gate, mask and dns) to enter in the pc. Everything was going well. But my ethernet adapter broke down so I had to replace it. So, I replaced it, entered my settings from the provider and... nada. Not w...

I have another question - how can I GET RID OF the windows partitions on the desktop? I want them just to be in /media - I don't need shortcuts for them because I don't need them so often.

I unchecked the box in mintDisk for the shortcuts, but they're still there :?

2 things I'd like to see in the software portal are the following: ImageMagick http://www.imagemagick.org/ It's a program for mass editing pictures - very very handy. Only problem is that it is terminal based. But all the commands are in the website and once you do it couple of times you get used to...

I really really like them. Very good job! 8) Just one thing is bugging me - the icon for the archives. IMHO the poison green just doesn't fit with an archive :?

For playing music I use "Exaile!" On my descent old machine it runs better than Amarok. It pretty much has the same functions as Amarok, but lacks the looks :) I personally hope that this will change in time. Another great application is "Life Rea" for RSS feeds. Xara Extreme IMHO is better than Ink...

GNOME works better for me. All the Ks in KDE just pull my nerves. It's too Windowsish. And personally I don't think that there's something that you can't tweak in GNOME. The looks of GNOME suits my tastes better. And the networking isn't really that bad as a lot of people say. I downloaded and insta...

samba
samba-common
smbclient
smbfs
