Re: How to setup DisplayLink USB VGA adapter for third monit

ive come to the conclusion after 4 years of linux use is that, if you require dual monitor to work using vga devices as such, just use windows and problems solved, sorry for the rant but people like myself are after simple click, patch/install to get such devices to work and not follow pages of conf...

Re: access is denied - Samba

Why can't this be as easy as sharing in windows? In windows theres no messy editing of files. Seems like nothing has really changed in regards to making it tidy as windows in the last 3 long years of using linux. :?:

Re: Brasero hasn't worked, for years

K3B is one of the first things I install on any new fresh install. Brasero always failed on me also. K3B is the only one I trust even though I believe it pulls in KDE libs (no big deal) upon installation.

Re: What makes mint better?

tbo i really enjoy using unity. mint13 cinnamon is also very good, but if there was a mint dash and mint HUD ill be 100% mint all the way, but because of the HUD and dash/lens I have been using unity more so over mint13, again, just my personal choice.
