Re: Release Date for Linux Mint 11 KDE

I hope that they don't take the Mepis approach and have so many apps and indeed the KDE 4 itself running on very old versions. Mepis is still using KDE 4.4 for instance. I should point out that Mepis 11 is based on Debian Sid. When the developer of Mepis, Warren Woodford , started the initial build...

KDE 4.5.4 . Kwin effects enabled with smaragd ( emerald windeco for kwin ) using the PassionM blue emerald theme. Opacity set to 75 % on vlc. Elegance plasma theme and Fekete icon set. If you like darker themes you will like the icon set.

Re: Unofficial Post Your Linux Mint Desktop Thread

Mepis 11 Beta 1. Default wallpaper which I think i will keep for a while. Some minor bugs but it is only the first beta. Comes with KDE 4.5.3 ( early build from Debian ) and is nice and responsive.

Re: Fortune Won't Go Away . . .

It depends on which version of Mint KDE you are using as it is done differently in the last 3 versions. Mint 7 KDE if anyone is still using it is kdesudo kate /etc/bash.bashrc comment out the line at the end ie # /usr/bin/mint-fortune Mint 8 KDE kdesudo kate /etc/bash.bashrc kdesudo kate /usr/lib/li...

Re: Mint Debian

Probably best if the topic remains on LMDE and not comparing it to other distributions. Just to clear up some information in the previous post regarding Mepis and there being a charge for the official version. There is no charge for the official version on cd. There is a dvd version that can be purc...

Re: KDE 4.4.3

If you are running Mint 8 KDE then chances are there will be no KDE SC ppa upgrades after 4.4.2 for Kubuntu 9.10 and therefore also Mint 8 KDE. PPA upgrades for Kubuntu 9,04 also stopped shortly after the release of Kubuntu 9.10 so it appears they only release them for the most current stable releas...

Re: PCLinuxOS 2010 Final Release

Aging Technogeek, I ran the beta's of pclos 2010 in a couple different configurations. Where it gets messy is if you also have installs on the same system that use grub2 as the bootloader. Texstar also stated pclos 2010 does not work with grub2. There may be a thread or post concerning this on their...

Re: PCLinuxOS 2010 Beta 2

This is one of those distros that you actually have to try it to understand just how fast it is for a KDE 4 based release. The small quirks that I have found have all been identified and fixed within a couple days. I am curious as to how the gnome and xfce beta's perform on the 2010 base.
