Re: Drop KDE and Xfce editions of Linux Mint

Yep sounds like the mis-informed here about what makes Linux Mint Great which is choice. Tho now using SolydK KDE which is Debian based is a off-shoot from the wonderful Mint Team & Family. And KDE is NOT Bloated! Mine chimes in to desktop at 302mb with full effects and apps are smooth and snapp...

Re: Space needed to Run W7 or other in VirtualBox

Yep one program I use is DVDshrink and run it thru wine. So really comes down to the complexity of the program and if it will run in wine.

But needing Image Editing on high level and needing Lightroom I run Win7 in VM and is taking 13gb at the moment.
WinXP would be smaller me thinks.

Re: Any Disadvantages to Using KDE?

I totally agree with both of you about KDE being the best DE. My only concern is with compatability issues with some programs. Have to be more specific to what programs. I haven't had any program compatibility issues with any programs I've used. But that is the key "Which Programs"? As le...

Re: Drop LMDE or turn it over to a community group!

As mentioned SolydXK but that is only if wanting KDE or Xfce. Now based on quarterly update packs. And is based on testing branch. In over 6 months have had zero issues smooth & stable and is pretty fresh with most apps being 1-3 months behind. And found testing to be a misnomer as my experience...

Re: NOT INSTALLL ATI

That is my card running on dual monitors with default open drivers.
And works fine with open drivers. And no need to try and install proprietary ones.
There are no proprietary ATi drivers and not supported as is a legacy card.

Re: Had it with KDE, going for a fake Cinnamon LMDE...

I'm not the only one that dreams of a KDE Lite fork, almost makes me want to learn programming.


Isn't there or was a project Trinity? that was a stripped down KDE distro?
The pulled out all the offending stuff to make it lighter.

Have to see how that's going.
