Re: Question about linuxmint 7

I use a Wireless Broadband USB connection on my PC. LinuxMint-7 recognised it, from the start . . . but, when I loose the connection, I don't know how to use Network Manager to get it back. I have tried everything I can think of. I finally, have to re-start my computer, and it re-connects. There mus...

Re: Poll: How do you use Linux Mint?

I use LinuxMInt 7 as the main OS on my work (at home) PC.
I have given Windows Vista only 70 Gb out of a 1 Tb hard-drive.
I, also, have Ubuntu9.04 installed but with very little space on the partition, as, I don't use it.

On my laptop, I am installing and giving LinuxMint 7 the entire drive.

Re: Upgrading to New Versions of Mint

I'm fairly new to using a Linux OS . .. Ubuntu and Mint 7. My question is . . . do we have to update, when a new version of an OS is released? It seems that many of the older/often wiser users stay with a version that works for them, even after another newer version is released. Are there so many up...

Re: The Myth of "Working Out of the Box"

I am a Registered Architect, so I am on the computer (a good computer) daily, and for long periods of time. Like most of America, I have used MSWindows OS, for many many years, because that's what the computer came with. Didn't know any better. I bought my first PC from Radio Shack in 1984. I now ha...

Re: I made the switch . . . to green

I was talking with some friends, just the other day. I was telling them about changing my OS from Windows to Ubuntu and how I was thinking about moving up to LinuxMint. I was talking about how I am not a computer geek or a techie. They said if I was using Linux . . I was a geek. :lol: I guess I'm a ...

I made the switch . . . to green

I have made the switch from Ubuntu 9.04 to LinuxMint 7 (Gloria), just today. The least, I can say is: Awesome!! :mrgreen: I love this OS so much better than 'buntu. Everything worked "right out of the box", to quote a clique. As I get more used to using LinuxMint, I'm sure I'll have questions and ne...
