Re: Putting Mint on older tablets?

To my simple mind, since Android is linux anyway - just use the existing drivers which work; ie as with the Ubuntu phone which shares the linux kernel.

Putting Mint on older tablets?

Hi, Is there a way/is there a project underway somewhere to put linux/mint on older tablets, as we can do with older laptops?

gedit freezes/have to "force quit" even after reinstall

Did a new Mint 16 install. gedit worked fine. Was changing fonts, then suddenly it froze. Waited, but then had to "force quit". Then it wouldn't open up my text files - got the red bar error message. Uninstalled gedit & reinstalled. Same thing. Installed Kate editor - works fine. ...Que passa?

How to change colors of anything in Cinnamon?

How does one change colors of anything? Eg With Nautilus - a dull gray, green & white with black text - maybe for a day. But if I want bright red, yellow highlight, a blue background & white text???

Give me a color wheel & let me do whatever I want. Is that so complicated?

Mint's Version 6 Update 24 vs current 7 Update 5

So, how far actually behind is Mint 13/Ubuntu's OpenJDK from Oracle Java? Java.com says mine is: Version 6 Update 24
& current is: Version 7 Update 5 ?? Why the lag if it is open sourced?
