Re: Mint XFCE, enabling wifi?

I got it off a buddy of mine who doesn't use it anymore. Wanted it to watch mlb games but have been disappointed. Il try disabling all effects. I would just buy a windows 8.1 full tablet but some features on it i don't like.

Re: Issue installing Mint 16 on Macbook 3.1 (2007)

I just booted Mint 13 and it started up fine. Im actually writing the post from it in a live session. So im guessing there needs to be a special mint version for older macbooks like Ubunutu has?

I haven't gotten around to trying 13 again. I'm wondering if when I installed osx lion it changed the bootloader?

Ah no worries man. I did try the Ubuntu dvd but that also gives me the same problem. Like I said before, I remember Ubuntu having a special is on for macbooks. Was trying to get some time to install mint 13 see if that works. Def looking patience though.

I did, mentioned that few posts ago. However selecting ufi, grub shows and I select start mint 16 but then it's just a black screen. I hear the Cd being read but then nothing after a minute.

When I hold option and get the boots screen, I choose UFI and then I choose start mint 16 but then its stays black. I also tried a windows 8.1 disk and its gives me that selelct cd boot type again.

Re: Issue installing Mint 16 on Macbook 3.1 (2007)

Thanks but unfortunately not. I know the latest ubuntu version have a special iso for macs so I have a feeling it has something do with it being impossible to boot with min 16 on my macbook. Is it possible to install an earlier version and update it to 16?
