Re: Network DHCP question

Look it is not a LinuxMint issue, it is not una problema tampoco , you just need to reconfigure your modem. We do not know your modem brand but ussually you access with 192.168.1.1 the password may be admin , just check in the back of your modem. Enable DHCP. Do not forget to save. You will be onlin...

Re: MATE vs Cinnamon?

So do I, I would suggest Cinnemon.
I will swicth when Final release available, I imagine within couple of days.

But if you run one hour on a pendrive , Mate then Cinnemon you can make up your mind by yourself and
you can check what your computer "prefers" .

Connected to the router, how to be sure you are On Line

Hi everybody, The network icon tell you you are connected to the router. But if you are connected to the router you may not be On Line. And you can't see it. As you know Microsoft uses a yellow triangle on the network icon to signal you are not On Line. Is there a trick for that ? Thank you in advance

Re: Thunderbird 24.1.0

I do not mean they do nothing .
Put a release X.0 instead x.1,,x,2 for often just a security update is not serious. It is just copy a G.Chrome marketing trick.
I know I am old fashion but for me the last FFox release should be FF 24.5
See you soon at FF 699

Re: Thunderbird 24.1.0

Anyway the main change is the release number, they change the label same stuff inside.
It is really ridiculous this trend to give a new number every 6 weeks without really new features.
