Re: Does Linux Mint get made fun of?

To me Unity feels like it's for a tablet with a touch screen.
That's the Canonical intention. They want a single "unified" DE for all the Ubuntu loaded devices: Desktops, laptops, phones or tablets. Hence the name.

Re: version of update manager

How do I determine which version (Muon, Apper, etc.) of update manager I have? Mint 15 KDE Olivia 32 bit My Update Manager quit or won't start. MintUpdate 4.5.2 (and MintInstall 7.4.8 Software manager) It's not Muon or Apper. The Software managing pack in Mint seems to be a customized version of th...

Re: Mouse wheel scrolls too fast

In my experience when the mouse wheel works nicely fast to scroll pages, let's say a web browser, it's too fast for some system or DE actions. Old style mices behaving fine for those DE actions are desperatly slow when scrolling. I learnt to live with it. I want the wheel very fast.... and using the...

Re: [Solved] LMDE with KDE desktop

Neptune was quite disappointing here. It was a promising one at first instance, but I think it still needs a long way to become mature. For a semi rolling Debian based KDE distro I much prefer SolydK. In my own experience, not as smooth as the current Mint releases (LMDE and Mint KDE) yet, but close...

Re: Problems instaling Nvidia 319 driver.

I had that problem too, but with the 304 instead. The only way to solve it was reinstalling and back to the default Nouveau driver. After two attempts, it seemed to go right, but the Nvidia X-server settings never launched, so no way of setting anything. Finally I tried the 304 Updates and worked fi...

Re: Linux Journal Readers' Choice Awards 2013

Most questions are simply: Best XXX. Best? Best for what? What specific use, targets or needs? And how many guys filling this know all the included options deep enough to give an informed answer for the best choice in every section? IMO, these quests are absurd.

Yes, They did. And they make money selling antivirus software. Sure they like Linux or any other platform users to be scared and worried about malware thus wanting protection for their systems. AKA.

Re: Which Linux Mint version for netbooks?

I've been trying a few light weight distros in the last days to install one of them on a friend's netbook where Win 7 is terribly slow. My personal favorite is Crunchbang. No doubts. But for a totally newcomer to Linux as my buddy is, I tried a few Xfce ones and though LM is not the lightest weight,...

Re: Families: Debian vs. Slackware vs. Fedora

And not Linux, but don't forget Unix (Solaris, BSD...) :mrgreen: In my very limited knowledge, Debian and Debian based distros have an enormous quantity or packages available, and since they are the more popular and the more abundant distros you can get support in myriads of sites.

Re: ZevenOS Neptune

Do Linux Mint actually need Ubuntu at all? IMO, LMDE and SolydXK demonstrates it doesn't. Oh, these rolling and semi-rolling distros... today you ask the question quoted above, and tomorrow (for example: at the next Update Pack) you rant and scream: how? how did you fail so bad? Why my hibernation ...

I installed it yesterday into my second HD. I'm loving it.

Finally have SolydK up and running. I'm on it now. If you are used to Linux Mint KDE 15 you won't notice any major difference performance wise other than the fans running faster/noisier... as I usually noticed with all Debian based distros I've tried compared with the Ubuntu based ones. They both ha...

I really don't know. AFAIK, most is Wheezy with a lower percentage taken from Sid.

Going to give a try to SolydK. Originally the same idea, a kind of LMDE with KDE attempt.

Been playing with it for the whole day. I just give up. It's fast and responsive. Noticeable faster tahn LM15 KDE, but somewhat raw, crude and unpolished. It has some annoying bugs, like never remembering some system settings after rebooting. Mint just flows smoothly in comparison. Another annoying ...
