Re: Mint 13 LTS ideas?

it would be nice to have a LM13 Mate cd iso (with just mate and only mate on it) Agree with that. MATE was so well hidden in LM12, it wasn't even available in live mode... I remember some people here at the forums were quite surprised to find out it's already installed :) I'm not sure MATE is stabl...

Re: Mint 13 LTS ideas?

been playing with LM12 Mate.. really like mate.

it would be nice to have a LM13 Mate cd iso (with just mate and only mate on it) for a release instead of having to install with the G3 crap.. then go in install mate via repos then try and remove all the G3 crap.

Re: Where is LXDE 64bit?

1. I think the reason why no 64 is its just never been made since LXDE is/was used primarily for "older systems" 64 was never needed. How ever if this is correct all that would be needed is remaking the lxde deb packages for 64 to have lxde 64. 2. someone else will have to answer that but I don't se...

Re: Cinnamon, Gnome 3, XFCE, KDE, and the Death of Ubuntu

My intention was not to criticize but to use Debian LXDE as an example of that not always the DE is what decides the fate of a distribution. If you like it the way it comes, that's good, but something you can often find in any Debian review (and I mean serious review) is that out-of-the-box Debian ...

Re: Cinnamon, Gnome 3, XFCE, KDE, and the Death of Ubuntu

. but some (if not all) of its own desktop "metapackages" are almost a disaster! (just give Debian LXDE a try). I have found debian lxde to be quite nice imo. only thing I added to it was network manager gnome. I did remove iceweasel and add the mint repo and installed FF9 also added mint forutunes...
