upgrade from mint 16 cinnamon to mint 17 kde

I'm running mint 16 cinnamon and thinking of switching to mint 17 kde. If I upgrade using the option of backing up software packages and personal data, can I change from cinnamon to KDE? Also, which DE has more features, cinnamon or KDE? From what I can gather in my searching, cinnamon is not as sta...

Re: [SOLVED] cust and paste canceled files lost

I hope that's the right way to mark it solved. It's be nice to be able to give credit to whomever solved it. I'm sure there are many more questions in me that I'd want to thanks another for solving.

Re: cust and paste canceled files lost

Move as apposed to copy. If it's used on the same drive it's fast. Just re-writes the location of where the data is at, on the "allocation table" (for lack of a better term) not actually "moving" the files to another location on the drive. Like re-writing the index. If you cut and paste from one dri...

Re: cust and paste canceled files lost

Paste was gone, but just now did a search starting at / and found a temp folder and they were there.

THANKS!

[SOLVED] cust and paste canceled files lost

Using Dolphin, I was trying to organize my files and folders and cut a folder from /Downloads, to paste to /Downloads/iso

I realized I had selected the wrong folder for the paste and canceled. Now the files I cut are gone.

What to do, what to do?

Re: dolphin/network/samba shares shows workgroup but I can't

Fascinating. Yes, I CAN access shares using smbclient. Know of any tools I can use that aren't KDE specific? *sigh* 60 moons ago or so I used OpenSuse as an ISCSI NAS server. Nothing fancy, just a backup location. Got used to KDE. Now KDE has changed so much, Gnome has changed so much, and I don't l...

Re: dolphin/network/samba shares shows workgroup but I can't

smb4k sees all computers and all shares, but I cannot access any.

I'm using kde mint. If I boot to kubuntu live cd I have the same exact problem. If I boot to ubuntu live cd I see and access everything.

Re: dolphin/network/samba shares shows workgroup but I can't

The windows computers are ALL in the same workgroup, have been for years, have worked fine and still do. Unless there is a place other than smb.conf that I have to tell linux the name of the workgroup, then every machine is in fact in the same domain. Is it possible that Linux doesn't like the workg...

Re: dolphin/network/samba shares shows workgroup but I can't

No, I cannot access qnap. The qnap shows up shows up in Konqueror, but none of the shares do. The windows workgroup works fine and has all along. In fact I CAN access shares on the linux box from any windows machine. None of the dolphin smb:// - commands work. All they do is bring up my home folders...

dolphin/network/samba shares shows workgroup but I can't use

I have 2 windows machines, a NAS (Qnap) running a flavor of Linux and one Linus mint 16 KDE, all in the same workgroup. Yes, I've told smb.comf the name of the workgroup. When I go to dolphin, samba shares it shows my workgroup name: Ge!, but when I click on it it does absolutely nothing. When I do ...
