Re: Mint 12 just doesn't work

I have found Mint to be the best - no B.S. out of all of the linux distro's that works and is clean, as such. There has to be other factors that are messing you up here. I have tried a few; and not a distro-hopper at all; but none of the others i tried were as clean and stable as Mint!

back again after a hiatus

I started with Mint at Bea & Barbara under another name. Due to a couple of situations I left and tried one or two other distro's however they just did not work out and had glitches. Good ideas, but... Anyway, i came back to 12 Lisa. So far it seems quite nice!

Re: Need Clarification Concerning MGSE & MATE

can you please expand more - i was hoping to get more of the icon view and the so-called dock on the left all the time instead of having to go to the top left corner to initiate this. i started a thread yesterday bout this.
