Donating without using Paypal at all impossible?

Hello. As a longtime Linuxmint user I would like to donate to this Distro but it appears that there is no way to do this without envolving Paypal. At least this is the impression that I have obtained from your site's payment form. Paypal is not a company that I want to have any dealings with. So hop...

Linx Mint Cinnamon Printer Setup [Solved]

Hi. After installing LM13 64 bit Cinnamon, it had trouble configuring my printer. LM13 would find the printer, Samsung ML-1865W, but could not successfully configure it automatically.

Re: Unable to Install KDE on LMDE

I have the same problem. MATE and CINNAMON now run faster than in the release candidate but I expect KDE would run fastest of the 3.

Hi. I installed KDE-Full successfully on the LMDE 201204 RC without changing repositories using the KDE-Full package. On my PC which uses an AMD E-350 processor/ 6470M graphics chip 8 Gb RAM, KDE gives the best graphics performance with AMD's Catalyst 11.10 driver. Both MATE and CINNAMON do not seem...

Re: Linux Mint Debian (201012) released!

Hello. I have tested the Linux Mint Debian 64 bit release and was disappointed. If the intention is to eventually move away from Ubuntu to Debian then please base the future Linux Mints on the stable version not the test version.
