Re: Software rendering mode problem

Hello Mute Ant, I just read this post, but I don't understand your reply. I had the same problem (on an vey old netbook)as Copious and I made a new dvd and re installed it again, but same happened. So I panicked and installed Maya Mate, which runs really well. But I would prefer Mint 17 as that last...

Re: old Acer aspire 3000 , no wfi driver

Thanks for that, I was planning to put mate. I put cinnamon by mistake on the netbook, but it works, so I am lucky. A friend of mine had suggested to get more ram, I did have a look under the cover, so I think (if I go ahead with it) I will be able to put it in. I will let you all know how I got on ...

Thank you so much. I actually have one of those usb wifi sticks; when I bought it I was assured it worked for linux, but this old acer does not seem to recognize it. It works ok on my acer netbook (much newer), but I have mint 17 cinnamon installed on that one. Do you think, it might work, if I inst...

Re: Newbie considering Linux, but first some questions

Thank you Austin for your explanation. I have Mate on my desktop which is old too and on an ancient laptop and I like it very much. So I think I will stick with that. I have Qiana cinnamon 32 bit on my netbook next to windows 7 (for travels), before I knew anything and I should have asked for advice...

Re: Newbie considering Linux, but first some questions

Hello Austin, would you please tell me what the difference is between Mint 17 mate 32 bit and the xfce 32 bit version?
I have qiana 32 bit cinnamon on my 3 year old Acer netbook and it works ok. Would the the other versions in fact be better for a netbook?

Re: mint 13 won't updateI SOLVED

Thank you Karl&Pierre. A friend of mine installed Maya 13 last year, because of the small HD (only 30GB) on the old laptop and because of the long support. There is no info on this medibuntu. However, I found it and disabled it. And yes it works ok now. Thank goodnes for this forum, oldies like me a...

Re: mint 13 won't updateI
