Nemo independent of Cinnamon and in official Ubuntu repos

Cinnamon is in the Ubuntu 13.04 repositories, but the file manager Nemo is not. After using 13.04 with Nautilus, I HATE how the latest version of Nautilus functions and miss the features in the older releases. I am aware that there are PPAs with Nemo, but it requires the entire installation of Cinna...

Re: Another DE option for Mint 12 - Cinnamon

I know there are already too many desktop environments in the wild now, but why was Cinnamon created? I'm curious if the time and resources would be better spent into refining the Gnome Shell and its extensions in addition to MATE. I know the strength of open source is that anyone can create anythin...

Re: Another DE option for Mint 12 - Cinnamon

MATE is different, it feels different and it provides different features. Both desktops will appeal to different categories of users and so we're likely to support both. I have been using Trisquel ( http://www.trisquel.info ) on another machine and I would love for them to adapt MATE as well consid...

Re: Regarding Mint 9 LTS Isadora

The issue I see with many Ubuntu based distributions based off of an LTS is that they do not keep up with the official point releases. It would be nice to see a Linux Mint 9.x to be in sync with 10.04.x and release ISO images with updated code. It would be nice to install a system and be somewhat up...

Mint 12 better not use GDM instead of LightDM

GDM was ugly and is still ugly no matter how many themes and backgrounds are thrown at it. Heck, LXDM is better for certain needs. Since the Ubuntu 11.10 and above codebase is using LightDM and is very pretty, please please please don't revert back to GDM for the Gnome 2.32 and Gnome 3 versions of L...

Re: Mint 12 to maintain a classic desktop in addition to Uni

Oneric just came out today, so I guess we should expect a Mint release next month. With that in mind, there has been no hints on what DE they will use as there is such a polarization what desktop should be default. If Mint 12 uses Gnome Shell, then there is no stopping someone from manually installi...

Customizing LightDM with Linux Mint 12

Seeing that Ubuntu is moving to LightDM with 11.10 and above, I'm assuming that Linux Mint will as well. I came across a link a few days ago (http://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2011/09/tool-change-lightdm-wallpaper-ubuntu-11-10/) about about customizing the background wallpaper and I think its good that the...

Re: Mint 12 to maintain a classic desktop in addition to Uni

I wonder how many threads are about this very subject on these forums? First of all, I'm flattered that you are replying to a thread that is a few months old. People must be curious about it and showing their passionate, if somewhat biased views at times. Since we have a greater grasp on Gnome 3/Un...

Re: Lubuntu 11.10 to have 64-bit version. Big news for Mint

I see it as a good thing for those that use Linux for video and/or sound editing and not only want a 64-bit machine, but little overhead from the OS itself in resources. If I want to allocate my resources to a video I am editing in 1080p, having an extra 100+ MB or so free would benefit my productio...

Lubuntu 11.10 to have 64-bit version. Big news for Mint LXDE

I was checking out the news today about the beta 1 releases of Ubuntu and its variants and noticed a "lubuntu-11.10-beta1-desktop-amd64.iso" file at http://cdimages.ubuntu.com/lubuntu/releases/oneiric/beta-1/ . This can be great news for Mint users since the LXDE versions are based off of Lubuntu an...

Re: Two update managers on boot in Mint 11 LXDE

I was hoping to get some help in the near future because I restored an older computer and giving it to a family member for schoolwork. I know its a minor nitpick to have two instances of the Update Mananger, but it uses up more resources and looks goofy.

Two update managers on boot in Mint 11 LXDE

I'm not sure if there was already a fix posted for this, but I recently did a fresh install of Mint 11 LXDE and noticed two instances of the Update Manager (mintupdate) on every boot. I end up manually closing one of them, but is this an issue the Mint team is aware of? If so, is there something I c...

Re: These Update Packs are still lacking some quality contro

Why not? People who demand greater stability can use Linux Mint in it's other various forms. LMDE is a rolling release, and will always be slightly imperfect. Do you not understand that?

Re: These Update Packs are still lacking some quality contro

We keep going in circles over and over again. If you can't handle the imperfections that are inherent to a rolling release, you should use something else. This release is based on TESTING. Perhaps you don't understand that this isn't Ubuntu/Canonical, where a billionaire can throw around endless am...

So, I should be denied the use of them, because you are so worried about differences in theming? I think it is the other way around, if the window borders bother you so much, YOU should ignore them. If you want a stable repository, reinstall and set your sources list to "stable", and quit gripping ...

Re: These Update Packs are still lacking some quality contro

bikrus,

I installed the Gnome version before the XFCE was available. I also manually installed LXDE, which I really like with the Katya LXDE themes and icons. I never really liked XFCE's look and actually prefer LXDE.
