Linux Mint version on desktop

Being a former Windows-XP user, I perhaps have a bit of a silly question for the forum:
Is it possible to display the Linux version (version number, build number etc) on the desktop?
Thank you for your time.

Re: Linux Mint 17 "Qiana" Xfce RC is out!

Looking good!
I decided to stop using MATE and I've switched to Xfce.
In seperate partitions I now have Mint13 Xfce en 17 Xfce.
No problems with the 32 bit version so far.
I'm sorry to say that MATE looks a bit old-fashion and a
bit too business-like for my taste.

Re: Which device to install the bootloader should I choose?

When you're on an EFI system, I think it's best to install GRUB in the EFI boot partition (sda2).
You could also install GRUB someplace else and use a program like EasyBCD to let the Windows
bootmanager do the work. This would not be my recommendation.

Re: [SOLVED] update manager not working properly in Mint13LT

@ Hendrick & Helmut Many thanks....... :D Helmut is absolutely right. I forgot to mention in my reply that you have to uncheck the backport box as soon as the job is finished. Otherwise you will receive a lot of other backported updates and upgrades. Normally this is not what you want when runn...

Re: HP scanner wordt niet herkend

Mijn versie Maya herkent de scanner van de HP Officejet R45 niet. De R45 is een drie-in-een. De printer en de fax worden wel herkend. Wie weet een oplossing? Heb je de printer rechtstreeks aangesloten op je systeem of is hij aangesloten op de router (netwerkprinter)? In het laatste geval zul je het...

Re: update manager not working properly

Norm

It is possible (I just did it) to select only one upgrade from Synaptic.
Under Settings go to Repositories and then check the Backport box.
After that use the search box to look for mintupdate.

Re: update manager not working properly

For anyone interested in reading more about this issu, there's a long thread HERE The argument that it's working as it's supposed to has been overtaken by the solution karlchen posted, and the fact that later versions of mintUpdate aren't affected. Yes? Thanks for the advise. I've changed the confi...

Re: update manager not working properly

I think that the latest version for Mint13 LTS is 4.4.7, which still has this bug.

Re: update manager not working properly

Hi folks, having a problem (a bug?) with the update manger not doing what is expected. Upon starting up the computer, the update manager icon always automatically changes to "checking..." , then subsequently changes to the ticked green box "your system is up to date". Weeks late...

Re: WINXP -- DUAL BOOT -- PARTITION QUESTION

Thanks for all the previous responses. After aggregating all the information here and in the install PDF I managed to resize my single partition and install Mint without any disasters. Choices I made were as follows: 1) Read the entire install file -- http://www.linuxmint.com/documentation/user-gui...

Re: Problem with Linux Mint 13 Maya

Hi,

I recognize these problems from the first week I was using Mint13. In my opinion
Firefox sometimes causes the system to freeze. My problems were gone after
switching to Google Chrome.

Re: WINXP -- DUAL BOOT -- PARTITION QUESTION

Hi, I would like to install Mint in dual boot on an old XP machine to see what all the Linux excitement is about. Currently XP takes up the entire drive in a single partition, and I know I will be installing Mint to a second separate partition for dual boot. In reading on this site and elsewhere it...
