Re: Bleachbit, Gparted, and the road of misery

Two cents from an average linux user, 1) Never install drivers that you find on random websites if you are not competent :lol: 2) bleachbit is one of the finest tools that there is, but use it carefully and regularly :D and last but not the least, you talked about touchpad. Does it have a switch on ...

The problem started when...

Re: mint14 vs mint13

I was told that mint14 is better than mint13. If I may ask, how is it better? Then there is the options of d/l Mate/Cinnamon/XFCE/KDE . What are the differences? I understand they are different window managers but how are they different? just as an average user, Mate - normal gnome cinnamon - eye-p...

Re: Maya LTS vs Nadia?

New to Mint but not Linux. I have Maya installed because it's an LTS with five years of support according to my understanding. A little tired of upgrading every 6 months with traditional releases. In your opinion, is it best to stay with an LTS and upgrade only future LTS releases or upgrade to new...

Re: deleting system wallpapers

Yes, I am aware of that option. Besides that, I misunderstood about the downloaded wallpapers. System wallpapers and downloaded wallpapers have their own folders, with custom folder available for your own pics :D Things couldn't get better. Thanks anyway.

Isn't this cinnamon Mint 13 thing? I don't have that 'brightness & lock' option in the system setting (lm 12 kde). Thanks for quick reply though.

After sometime, I decided to use sudo apt-get dist-upgrade because I love doing that (newbie 8) ) and it seemed to have solved the...
