Re: Linux Mint 13 "Maya" released!

I've been on Linux since Hardy and this has to be the most polished release I've ever used.

Re: Nautilus Image Converter?

Thanks for the reply mate!

But this is weird....after I installed yesterday there was no right click option for resizing available.....accessing it exactly the same way as I've always done on Ubuntu.

Now today it's there!

So problem solved....but I've no idea how! :D

Re: leaving Ubuntu, a sad day

I never dreamed this day has come for me. I can say very little, I got hitched starting around 5.04 and am leaving behind 11.10. forever. You know something's wrong when the real longterm Ubuntu users jump ship. I did as well, but I only started on 8.04 so nowhere near as long as you. Sad day for m...

Nautilus Image Converter?

Just installed 12....great work Clem and all the team!

One question though....I've installed Nautilus Image Converter from the repos but no right click option shows up in the menu.

Any ideas guys.....cos as a web dev this little tool is such a timesaver for me.

Re: Linux Mint could take the world by storm

Change and advancement is part and parcel of technology. Hell...I go back to amigaDOS and have used just about everything from that to W7 and numerous distros. But change and advancement implies improvement. ME was not an improvement to SE, Vista was not an improvement to XP.....and looking back the...

Re: Linux Mint could take the world by storm

Good stuff here! As a longterm Ubuntu user who has jumped ship due to Unity, I'd make one point. It's not just Unity that's getting people's back up....it's the attitude I'm afraid. Recent interviews with Mark Shuttleworth have seen him basically come out and say "take it or leave it.....we're doing...

Re: Any room.......

Cheers guys! I should point out that although I'm in Spain.....I'm a Brit (Welsh).....been here since 2005. And I'm never, ever going back.....not even in a box! Used Ubuntu since Hardy....thought I'd never leave. I gave Unity a fair crack of the whip, but it's not for me. I still use Lubuntu on the...
