Re: Mint Hack Donation thread!

Count me in for sure! I owe my freedom from Windows to Linux Mint! I have donated $20. I have tried many other distros and I always come back to Linux Mint. It just works! :mrgreen:

Re: Linux Mint 16 "Petra" Cinnamon RC released!

Anyone having trouble with the updates today? When I try to refresh the updates, it seems that Mint cannot contact some repositories...

Re: Any alternative to Itunes??

Unfortunately, there are no good alternatives that work correctly with the new IPhones. I have an Ipod touch 2nd Gen and it does not play well with Linux either. I am a music lover and like to carry most of my music with me, so I got a 32GB SD card for my android phone and copied all my music to it ...

Re: stability of Linux mint 15 and Linux mint 13.

So far my install of LM 15 on three computers is working great! I wouldn't call my environment a "production" environment, but I still like to have stability and reliability. So far LM 15 seems solid. I love it so far. :mrgreen:

LM13 + ATI Radeon Drivers

Ok.. I think I messed up. New installation of Mint 13 Maya w/ Cinnamon (she's beautiful) I broke her by installing the ATI drivers from the "Additional Drivers" link and when it rebooted, my monitor said "Out of Range". I don't remember how I did it but I dropped to the shell and...

LMDE 201109 Edition

quick question..

Since "Squeeze" is the new Debian Stable, does that mean that this version is now "stable" too or is it still the testing version?

Thanks!

**SOLVED**Re: Suspend/Hibernate not working

well... swap was good... I had to install the package you mentioned, because it wasn't installed. Once I installed the powermanagement-interface package, suspend and hibernate now work correctly.

Thanks for the help!!
