Re: Poll: Desktop environments

Right now I use Cinnamon on Mint 12 on my laptop, and I really love it. I have LMDE Xfce running on an old desktop, and it works great, too--no frills, but it's very light. I voted for both.

Why are two batteries listed in the system tray?

I'm running Linux Mint 12 on a Dell Latitude D531. I noticed a few days ago that the battery indicator in the system tray read 0% when I knew that wasn't right. I clicked on it, and two batteries were listed, one with 0% that never changed and one with the correct percentage (going up since the batt...

Re: Another DE option for Mint 12 - Cinnamon

Wow, it's beautiful! I already like it so much more that both MATE and GNOME 3 with MSGE. Keep up the great work!

Re: PXE is... gone?

Lately, even though CD drive has been set to first boot priority in BIOS settings, I can't get it to boot fr...
