Re: rtl8187 disconnecting

Its a problem that seems to keep being ignored. From what I read its mostly to do with all the distros using new kernals that do not include support for most wireless cards. Untill the distros deside to deem it necessary to correct this problem by adding the missing wireless support this problem wil...

Re: Mate vs. Cinnamon

The mint team dident make mate, they made cinnamon. But they were one of the first distros to use mate.

Hope that makes sense, :)

Re: So, Mint 15 RC Cinnamon is sucking..

mint 15 is working fine on my sony lap top also. Too many people want to blame mint when its most of the time hardware problems, video drivers etc. This is a rc not a finished product.

Re: Cinnamon and Gnome 3.8

If Cinnamon is in Mint's vision than it's more than likely to fork Gnome-3.6. I actually like Cinnamon it's a very functional desktop, but the control panel, and customization is kind of lacking (it almost gives that windows customization vibe... meaning not much) I however always used Gnome's cont...

Re: Wireless connection keeps dropping

I had the same problem and tried everything. The simple solution was to change the channel on my wireless router. When they are set up most times its put on 11 and that causes congestion and drops i connection etc. I changed my to channel 1 and all it rock solid again. Try this first hope it helps.

Re: Very Disappointed!

mint 13 cinnamon may be a better shot for you. mint 14 has had a few problems on some computers but it hasent been out as long. another thing get a rw dvd then if it dosent burn correctly you can just erase it and use it over again. also burn the dvd at the slowest speed that you can.

Re: How stable is LMDE?

lmde is a good choice. It not only looks great its very fast and stable. With
the way mint does the update packages you are assured of very limited breakage. Plus you have cinnamon and unlike some debian versions wifi drivers out of the box.

Re: Cinnamon and Gnome 3.8?

fedora hasent said anything about dropping cinnamon. Only arch and a coupple of minor arch based distros. Not really a big deal. Most distros are not using 3.8 at the moment or are based on arch so really nothing to get worked up about
