Re: Have you managed to get Mint 15 installed?

OK, I had another go and it worked! Couple of tiny issues, I put the displays applet in the panel but the system settings window is invisible but there in Expo and Scale. Works fine if I launch it from the Menu. Weird. Disabled the applet. Update manager was really flakey, errors about Ubuntu and Ol...

The discs mount fine on the Mac, on the MInt 14 side and the Win 7 sideof my PC. I tried 2 different media. The same media works fine for the Mint 14 dvds I burned...

Have you managed to get Mint 15 installed?

How many people have managed to get a stable MInt 15 installed? I burned about 6 dvds, all md5 checked ok but could not get a stable install on my desktop . So I went back to 14, no issues installing whatsoever. I even used one of the dvds to install 15 in Virtualbox and there it runs fine. Now look...

Re: Huh!? Some YouTube videos are "currently unavailable"..

Youtube works fine on Linux Mint 14, just tried it. Works fine on FF and Chromium. Please don't spread FUD. I don't know what he cause was but it wasn't the fault of LInux. You say some videos are unavailable. Perhaps it was some geo-locking. Could you provide some links that don't work for you and ...

Re: Unable to burn Olivia iso in OS X

My Mint 15 DVD iso will not mount on OS X either.. but the dvd boots live fine on my PC. My Mint 14 64-bit and 32-bit mount fine but the 15 and the latest Mageia will not mount either. Perhaps something has changed in the current isos. I admit I haven't installed 15 as I've just got 14 setup how I w...

Re: Unable to burn Olivia iso in OS X

I've been playing with various Mint .isos, 14, 15RC and 15 and have been burning them via OS X and Mint. I've managed to make a few coasters that would throw errors up including that one. My advice is to burn the iso at the slowest possible speed and try different media.

Re: Issues compiling Sigil with Qt and Cmake

I followed more closely the instructions here
http://code.google.com/p/sigil/wiki/RunningFromSource
and then added a link to the Graphics menu by right clicking the menu area and adding an Application link to the shell script.
Everything works as one would wish :-)
