Does this work with Linux Mint Debian? I'm considering installing LMDE on my new laptop, and would love to have Unity on there as an option.

Re: totem and youtube [solved] goto page 2 to see how

Hello! Thank you for patching this. Your solution works great. For those noobs like me, let me tell you how to get this patch working. It took me a full 60 seconds. You will need to start the Package Manager (not mintInstall) and do a search for "Patch". Install the "Apply a diff file to an original...

Re: [SOLVED] Installing Mint 7 KDE via USB error

You may be talking to yourself in terms of replies, but I was listening! I've been having trouble with this myself so your posts were a great help to me. Thank you for that. Glad to hear it. It occurs to me that the unetbootin MIGHT have had a similar problem, just being manifest in a very differen...

Wifi on HP mini 110-1030CA

Hello, I have an HP mini. Wireless worked flawlessly on Linux Mint ME Gnome 'Gloria' but not on Linux Mint CE KDE 'Gloria'. I don't really understand why. Following http://www.linuxmint.com/wiki/index.php/MintWifi I got to the part where I needed to get the driver. This confused me. I don't have the...

Re: Installing Mint 7 KDE via USB error

SOLVED. I have no idea what unetbootin's problem was. As per the last link I reformatted my stick and I made it only 2 or so gigs so I didn't have a bunch of free space and used a different USB port just in case. I don't know if the free space caused a problem or not. I'll try it without the free s...

[SOLVED] Installing Mint 7 KDE via USB error

Good day all, So, I want to get Gloria KDE running on my systems. Why waste a CD? Install it with a reusable USB drive. Also, my other computer is a netbook with no CD/DVD drive, so I kind of have to use a USB drive. The problem is that I can get it to boot off my USB stick. I've done this with the ...

Re: Linux Mint 7 'Gloria' KDE released!

Hello all, Download now, but I'm surprised to see that it's over a gig. Why with the KDE CE almost double the size of the regular old Gnome? Kubuntu isn't double the size of Ubuntu, so I'm a little surprised. I was kind of counting on it being one gig to load on this one gig stick I have. My 1 gig s...

Re: KDE 4.3

So, seeing as Gloria will be my first run with Linux Mint, I want an authentic Linux Mint experience. Does this imply that I should not upgrade via the Ubuntu repo listed above, and wait for it to be released for Gloria? Will I lose any of the customizations?

Re: Please NO mono in Mint

Technically speaking you can remove mono and because of dependencies you'll also have to remove tomboy, and the Linux Mint meta-packages. Thank you. I plan on using the KDE CE, which I assume does not come with Tomboy. But what do you mean the Linux Mint meta-packages? Aren't those needed for... Li...

Good day everyone! As I'm sure you all know there are rather intense feelings surrounding Mono these days. At the risk are starting a flame war, may I ask if Mono is installed in the KDE CE?

There is an awful lot of hate in this thread towards people who don't want to use Mono. I have to say this is one of the more civil discussions I've read, but that doesn't mean it is civil. (Subtle difference, I know.) The people who have suggested it be removed were all quite civil, as are have of ...

Generally there is one release candidate, the community tests it out and the bugs are fixed.

Re: Gloria KDE CE. When?

I'm new to Linux Mint. I was wondering if you have multiple release candidates or if you just use the one until all the bugs seem to be fixed? Or does it depend on how serious the bugs are? Or are there multiple RC being released?
