Computer doesn't recognize installation

Hi, I have installed Linux Mint 13 (I had windows installed before it) I chose to install linux alongside windows, installation was succesfull, but my computer doesn't show an option to start linux mint when I boot my computer. Should I install grub manually?

Thanks already!

Re: HOWTO: Cinnamon compile and run guide

Once compiled, can it be updated through our regular automated methods? Most probably, no. That's the usual trap of the tutorials that explain how to "make install" but don't tell anything about how you should keep the source tree intact (so you can "make uninstall" later) or about possible conflic...

Noob's questions: Is following this guide and compiling Cinnamon better than just installing cinnamon and cinnamon-session? Once compiled, can it be updated through our regular au...

Re: Where do programs save their configfiles?

The standard practice is to place configuration files in the home folder of the current user who's running the application. This way, preferences unique to that user are kept separate from others. Configuration file/directory names start with a period in order to hide them from normal listing by th...

Re: Another DE option for Mint 12 - Cinnamon

So Cinnamon is indeed installed but it's not showing up in the DE drop down list on the login screen (located on the right-hand side of the password field--looks like a gear I believe)? It did for me as soon as I installed it and logged out. I know, another stupid question but we have to eliminate ...

Re: Another DE option for Mint 12 - Cinnamon

2 issues to be solved and 1.1.3 will be released.

Found some info here: http://live.gnome.org/GnomeShell#building

As Cinnamon is forked from Gnome Shell, I am still looking for a way to implement this.
