Re: Anyone tried Gnome3 lately ?

I've tried it repeatedly, trying to find something to like about it. It just isn't happening for me. Is it just me, or does everything seem fuzzy, low-res, and chunky in Gnome 3 Shell? Everything is so dumbed-down, and things take too may steps to do. I was a big fan of Gnome 2, but I just can't gr...

Re: Anyone tried Gnome3 lately ?

I'm running Gnome 3 on Maya Cinnamon with Axe Menu installed. I think this might be the best Desktop experience I have ever had (and I've been using PC's since DOS 3). I love it so much I gave a donation. Pity Mate wont install on my PC (an old-ish Fujitsu Siemens Desktop with a Nvidia card installe...

Re: Mint 14 freezes during install.

Mmmm I've used nomodeset in the past when a CD/DVD refused to boot and brought up a blank screen, my DVD boots just fine but decided to give it a try anyway. Unfortunately it made no difference. I know it is not faulty hardware. I used the same system to install Mint 13 today with no problems. Just ...

Mint 14 freezes during install.

Not sure if this is the wrong place for this question so please forgive me if it is. My Fujitsu Esprimo E5730 works fine with all versions of Mint up to 14. I have installed 11 in the past and have been running 12 for over a year and recently installed 13 but 14 refuses to install. I have tried Cinc...

I've been using Mint 12 since it came out and had no issues. I have it installed on two PC's and two old Fujitsu laptops and it always works well.

Update
Found another thread in the Gnome 3 part of Main Edition Support. Somebody suggested using Cinnamon 13 with Gnome 3 shell.
Burning a DVD as I type.

Is Mint 12 the best Mint ever, better even than 13?

I have been using Linux Mint off and on (mostly on) for a couple of years now and was never 100% convinced about the 'Windows Like' start menu. I always found it a bit of a faff when looking for applications, hunting through the menus and scrolling up and down. I wasn't that keen on Gnome 2 either f...
