Re: Linux Mint after 2016! What do you expect?

I've recently installed Debian Jessie. To my mind it's as easy as installing LMDE or Linux Mint. Just click "next" a bunch of times, fill in your account name, and sit back while it installs. I don't get what would be difficult about installing it. Setting up two network printers was trivial as wel...

Re: Linux Mint after 2016! What do you expect?

I suspect most folks dreaming of a Debian based Mint have never run pure Debian as their main workstation. ...And I'm still running it. The only difference from other distros is that you must spend a few hours to get the software you want (pure Debian install). I have never ran LMDE but I suspect i...

Re: Can't get the courage to replace Windows.

1) How do I install my printer driver?(HP InkAdvantage 3535)(Network). 2) Is there any registry cleaner. 3) Do games work on wine in Linux. (FIFA 12, NFS Carbon etc.) Has anyone played these two in mint? Do they work fine? 1. It should work. 2. Registry does not exist on Linux. 3. The latest games ...

Re: Mint 17.2 KDE: KDE 4 or KDE 5?

I installed kubuntu with plasma 5 on a separate partition just to try plasma 5. Long story short, it sucks! The themes are horrible, and it isn't nearly as configurable as KDE 4. Why is it every time devs make something "better" it ends up being a chopped up version of what it's replacing? I've bee...

Re: This time I *really* can't believe the Windows fanboys!

Calm down, some folks (when they feel offended) are losing their minds. Even a monkey can install distro such as Ubuntu or Mint accepting the defaults of course. About the other things - envy. :lol:

Re: What made you switch to Linux Mint?

Something else I like about Linux I think, and Mint... It's been making me use my brain more, since I think I feel like I was stagnating. I was learning new things! New ways to do things, how to use the terminal more and more (I spent over a half hour to an hour today just practicing some basic com...

You can actually, and it's not bad to make a positive comment regarding Windows if there is a reason but like ...

Re: Windows 10 to be free upgrade

I believe that CentOS have 10 years support too... :roll:

But anyway who on earth will buy Windows 10 when you have Windows 98? You will be 88 versions ahead in time and not 10 years - even after 50 years you will be fine. :P

A friend of mine will give me as a gift one IBM Thinkpad T23. I even don't know how old is this beast. It's original OS was Windows 98 SE. It now runs Windows 2000 SP4 and it's very well preserved! But the real question is what Linux distro to throw at it? Linux Mint is a NO go! This laptop have Pen...

Re: Different DEs

Everything is already very well explained above but I will add: if you are newbie avoid WM only spins. You will be scared at first but if you like challenges and have patience - go for it! ;) Openbox, Fluxbox and FVWM are good choices though the last is very ugly. :D

Hi Doc, yes Cinnamon 2,2 is what I said is available in the Debian repo's but Cinnamon 2.6 is the newest version, FYI I did see a youtube video on how to install Cinnamon 2.6 on Debian, if you are interested.

Re: What actually distinguishes one distro from another?

My opinion looks like this:

1. Target audience.
2. Package base.
3. The choice of software.

Re: Into the future: Linux Mint and Ubuntu; Mir, Wayland, et

I was reading a lot old reviews and interviews about Mint and I came to a simple conclusion: Clem is doing awesome job at keeping Mint conservative at times (Gnome 2.32 -> Gnome 3 transition) and very innovative (the Cinnamon project). No matter what will happen - he will choose the best decision. ;...

The last time when I tried Cinnamon on my hardware at all was with Linux Mint Petra.

Re: Mint 17.2 KDE: KDE 4 or KDE 5?

Plasma 5 is too flat, really flat! Even KaOS with it's awesome theme can't make Plasma 5 to look any better. Just in comparsion KDE 4 can look just amazing with a few tweaks. I was using KDE 4 only on Debian Wheezy and Jessie but the same result can be achieved by any KDE distro. Also KDE 4 will be ...
