Mint 13 KDE

I installed Mint 13 KDE a couple of weeks ago. It's like playing a Chopin piano piece on a grand piano! An unusual smooth feeling. Fabulous and a joy to use. Congrats to the team on this edition. :D

Re: need Flash for Pandora radio?

As you have been told in other posts, you are trying to run a modern OS on a rather old PC. You might be better looking at an older version of mint/linux or getting a newer machine, though many users still have graphics issues with new machines! How come my eight year old PC handles Mint 13 (last s...

Re: Predictive Text-Google (SOLVED)

(Solved) Thanks Habitual but it didn't work. I have solved this problem by selecting Options (top right in Googles main search window) and selecting to use iGoogle and then pasting it´s address in Firefox´s Options menu/general/home page. Yipee!

Tried that but it won't fix it permanently. Sign out and it's enabled again. If I remain signed in then ok but I do not want to sign in just for general searching. Thanks tho'

Thanks benachie, Gives me even more confidence. Also I wish to connect my 17" monitor (currently on my old PC) to it. I assume it will fit ok. I mean, the picture size will be 1280x800 or above I presume. Sorry to sound ignorant in these matters but never bought a brand new box before!
