Re: Unofficial Post Your Linux Mint Desktop Thread

I have to agree, mmesantos has by far one of the best looking desktops in this thread.

It's got that sexy elegant side, yet professional feeling to it, and neatly organized.

LM8 does come bundled with quite alot of things that the average user would probably never use. Some of the packages I remove on the spot from a fresh install; CUPS and Samba (I don't have a printer) Bluetooth support (Bluetooth stuff is too expensive for me to even think about) Screensaver (Screens...

Re: New to Mint, mixed feelings

Installing WINE sudo apt-get install wine (or install thru Synaptic) should allow you to run a number of windows applications. Some run very well, some ok, some so-so, and some not at all. What applications are you needing access to? I'd also like to point out that not every Windows application wor...

How do you promote Mint?

How do you, as a Mint user, promote the OS you use?

I have links in my signature (and some forums I use the Linux Mint User userbar), and also link to the main LM site and LM Blog on my blog and even blogged about Linux Mint. :)

Re: I AM A NEW MINTIE

I have been an Ubuntu user for 2 years now. I love it and I will NEVER go back to WINDOWS :shock: . I was looking at Ubuntu videos on you tube 2 weeks ago and I saw that Linux Mint was here.

Re: New to Mint, mixed feelings

just throwing this out there, but... it sounds like you might be on a laptop, and have accidentally/unknowingly toggled the Num Lock key. :roll: the standard toggle on most laptops is Fn-F4 (hold down the Fn key, and then press the F4 key). I'd have to agree with this, you appear to be on a laptop ...
