Re: Test Mint8 from USB on PC without USB boot function

Hi all, Would Mint OS run near to the fully-installed speed if the OS is stored on a USB instead of the hard disk? Sorry, I didn't read this part. Yes it would be faster on USB. My PC (Intel Motherboard D865GLC) allows me to set the boot priority between the floppy, the hard disk and the CD drive o...

Yes. That would be wonderful. I hope it has excellent hardware support like Mint itself. :wink:

Re: Test Mint8 from USB on PC without USB boot function

Mint will run much faster on a USB stick. Here's a guide: http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=42&t=14209 I thought it will run slower because your computer would have to transfer files back and forth with your USB. But I also heard it would be faster because USB has no moving parts. Somethi...

Re: Peppermint OS

There is also a distro out there called gOs: http://www.thinkgos.com/ It tries to mimic the idea of Chrome Os before Chrome(ium) Os was available for download. But Kendall, it's nice to see you working on a cloud distro, something we kinds-sorta discussed at my suggestion for creating miniMint. http...

Re: Creation of MiniMint

Aw, ok. Then, there's no more hope for me to put Linux Mint on USB.

Where, then, do you recommend I should ask for help?

Is there any distro that you know could potentially be the one I wanted? Thank you!

Creation of MiniMint

Hi, I'm a Linux newbie, so there are a lot of things that I can only dream of accomplishing. One of them is to build a mini distro. I would like to have one small enough to fit on 128MB USB (so it can be loaded in RAM fast), with excellent hardware support like Mint (Even Ubuntu had issues), and lig...

Re: How do you promote Mint?

I've only had one convert so far: my uncle. His windows was infested with Anti-virus alarms (the ones that slow down computers more than the virus itself), updating messages, and even Windows Genuine notifications. First, I spent two afternoons cleaning it. On the third day, I asked for permission t...

Shiki theme improvement

Shiki color has been one of the most professional theme I've seen (I also like Dust). However, there are two areas that I think needs more polishing: the scrollbar and the buttons. In name of elegance and minimalism, I think the scrollbar needs to be round, thinner, and dark-colored. As for the butt...

Aw, I was dying for it...

But it's ok, I might just give her the main edition disk instead. But first, let's hope that her computer boots up with the disk.

Re: Helena Xfce CE Development(updated Mar 07)

Question:

Will there be a Mint Menu like the main edition for Xfce? I want to introduce Linux Mint Xfce to a Windows friend, but I'm afraid the cluttered Xfce menu would make her go "Whoa! What are all these stuffs!?"

Re: Have any of you used Epiphany?

Oh, let me make it clear. I'm using Chrome on Windows. On Windows, Chrome uses separate process for each tab and sometimes even the extensions.

Re: RAM Usage, Linux Mint and Crunchbang

On Windows XP, when I cleans everything, reducing to only necessary processes, including printer process. I'm able to stabilize the ram usage to 121MB at idle. http://img181.imageshack.us/img181/5791/13912415.png Does it mean, then, that XP is faster than Fluxbox/LXDE? I thought XP is closer to Gnome.

Source: http://www.dedoimedo.com/computers/crunchbang.html "On a system with just 512MB, CrunchBang used just 87MB and no swap, which makes it a most worthy candidate for weak machines. This is several times less than most distros take. Additionally, the experience was fast and responsive, a real pl...

Ok, thanks a bunch. Could you explain a little more about the Xfce edition? I think that's what I'm going to install.
