Re: ATI radeon graphics

Since the open-source 3D driver came into the newer kernels the need for the proprietary FGLRX driver went down. Running compiz, playing high-def movies etc works just as well with the open-source driver as it does with the proprietary one. If you find that your desktop/laptop work sufficient with ...

Re: Openshot Video Editor

Hey Jonathan, I completely agree! OpenShot could be Linux Mint's analogy of Movie Maker for Windows. I think it would be a good incentive for someone to choose Mint. I personally LOVE OpenShot. It does nearly everything that I've wanted in a Linux video editor for years(basically what PiTiVi has fa...

Re: Replacing GIMP

...Hey Guys,I just had a great idea I think. I think that GIMP should be replaced by a simpler program... Well, I was using for a long period the best graphic sw - adobe photoshop , so my opinion to above mentioned quotation - it's really stupid idea, not great at all :) And Gimp is kinda cool, rem...

Re: USABILITY AND UNDERWEIGHT DVDs

Well, put in some fonts and as much drivers as possible is a good thing. More themes, icons, backgrounds etc is also good. I myself miss a clipboard manager like parcellite and a video editor + i wish pidgin-otr was included, maybe more gimp plugins and such. Dont need to make it 4 gb, but they coul...

DVD request: Clipboard manager + video editor

I suggest including a clipboard manager like glipper or parcellite in the DVD release. I would also like to se a video editor, since many edit theyre online videos these days. I dont understand why ubuntu chose pitivi since you cant do much with it, like adding effects etc, openshot has this and is ...

Re: Mint on DVD - Use of extra space.

Most people don't need a bunch of advanced image/audio editing programs or multimedia programs besides the one that is already pre-installed in Mint, which work just fine, and I don't want a bunch of games that I'm never going to play and which I'm probably going to end up uninstalling anyways to s...

Re: Replacing GIMP

If you don't like GIMP, don't worry, nobody's forcing you to use it. The great thing about Linux is the wide variety of choices you have. Just take a look at the repositories and try the following Paint programs out to see if you like them better: GPaint, mtPaint, XPaint, rgbPaint, TuxPaint, Krita,...

Re: Replacing GIMP

Then use gthumb. And surely, ... My post earlier was directed to the OP, and no one else. I don't think I ever tried gthumb before, but probably because the Gimp satisfies my image editing needs. Hence no reason to use a more simple image editor (and photo organizer). Personally, I prefer having Gi...

Some games don`t add to menu if there isn`t a Games sub menu already in place.


I fully agree regarding the DVD release!

I think maybe "yo frankie" would be a good addon too, while we wait for 0 A.D

Re: Mint on DVD - Use of extra space.

Call it the offline experience, for those who would like to be able to install a number of apps/games/drivers without internet connectivity. Then, choose debian or opensuse. I think that market is too small anyway. Linux mint's strenght is its simplicity, and i think, if the software is not preinst...

Re: Mint on DVD - Use of extra space.

Nice to see Mint available on DVD. Seeing as there`s now 4.7 gigs available - Might I suggest the extra space be used primarily as a means of including as many graphic and network drivers as possible. I`m sure we could all suggest useful and popular applications that could be included on the DVD, b...

Re: Replacing GIMP

And it's quite confusing to open up what seems to be a simple application to find that it's like Photoshop. It only looks complex partly because of the ridiculous amount of tools and floating palettes when you use it the first time. But rather than paying full attention to the palettes, focus on th...

Good point, which is why truecrypt should be used since it gives you deniability. Even law enforcement will have trouble getting what they want if you use that software.

You can actually USE gimp for a variety of things and its quite easy too if you take 5 min to look trough the menu.
