Re: Gloria On Eee pc 1000H no wireless, need help

Thanks but she has an Eee pc 1000H its over a year old, and even came pre installed with linux! So no reason in my eyes that it should not work with linux mint by default instead. (it came with that dumbed down xandros distro) so I know all the hardware was supported well enough a year ago. It worke...

Re: XFCE CE 7 Gloria Development update(June 24)

Sounds good, i'm sure we can give it a try. I also have vmware I could test if needed (i assume 9.04 64bit works in vmware workstation) i haven't personally tried it. We could some how setup to install xubuntu, and then run a script to modify it to mint. Also xfce from synaptic is 4.6.0 and the late...

Re: XFCE CE 7 Gloria Development update(June 24)

What is normally involved in building a 64bit mint xfce os? Do you just take the base ubuntu , add a few repos and xfce + Themes? maybe You could just create a user script that would auto get the packages needed and build the xfce on a minimal 64bit install. Im using 64bit mint, with xfce, although ...
