Hi tovian, thanks for the feedback. I shall give this a try and update this post on results :) @colossus75 You might want to verify that both/all your machines are in the same workgroup.

Re: Where is K3B on 32bit Cinnamon Qiana?

When I try to find K3B in the Mint Software Manager or Synaptic...I get nothing. It's a clean new install..current updates as of today. K3B not there or repo has an issue? I'm not that savvy if it comes to software sources..I didn't muck around in there.
