Re: KDE 4.4 on the way

At first I also had problems with the graphical corruption and some sluggishness on the desktop, but some new packages were available ... so I updated them and now the login is normal! And the desktop is smooth again! So I highly recommend everyone to see if you got any updates left, they seem to fi...

Yes I have the same bug too, but I do not even know what Toucan can be used for? What is the purpose of the application in the first place?

Re: 32-bit or 64-bit KDE first?

64bit support has been there for a long time in the hardware (CPU's), and after all these years software has finally caught up. Although the 32bit version still is useful for netbooks and older computers, any non-netbook computer that has been sold the past years has 64bit support. Together with the...

Re: Linux Mint 8 KDE RC1 Bug topic

When installing rhytmbox on Mint 8 KDE CE there is a problem with USB devices, I cannot 'safely remove' any device from within dolphin or from the device notifier, only from within rhytmbox, even when rhytmbox was not open to begin with I need to start it to 'eject' the device!

Re: Just tried Mint KDE CE...

I think next releases of Linux Mint should be 64 bit first, 32 bit later ... tests show that the 64 bit kernel is WAY faster than the 32bit kernel, and many people have 4GB RAM today. To be honest, I am not one of them but of course my CPU supports 64bit instructions and my computer is quite old whi...

Re: Linux Mint 8 KDE RC1 Bug topic

A bug that was found and a fix: When you insert the DVD or and USB with the iso and try to run or install the KDE CE, you might get a problem: After choosing an option in the menu the screen will go black after 10 seconds and nothing will happen anymore. A fix is to hit 'tab' in the menu, and delete...

Too bad this didnt reach this thread yet:

Re: Helena KDE CE update

I am wondering, if I will install the RC1 of the KDE CE, will I be able to upgrade simple to the final version later on, or will I need to reinstall my entire OS?

Thanks in advance :)

I would just give him the Mint main edition, gnome looks nice enough and everything just works out of the box for me :)
