Re: Is there a 64bit LXDE version?

64 bit is not worth installing on any pc yet, and won't be soon, 32 bit is much smoother and run faster Actually you would need it if you had >4 MB RAM. But if you have some much RAM and latest processor i don't think you really need LXDE edition. GNOME takes about 120-130MB ram when idle. LDXE (lu...

Re: Is there a 64bit LXDE version?

Thanks Zoof. I went ahead and used the standard mint64 for now. Reason being I have 6 Gb of ram on my machine. Good to know it might be available in the future if enough people make the switch to 64 bit. In the meantime, if you have internet enabled before you run the ubiquity installer it should a...

Re: how best to move from ubuntu and XP to mint and XP ?

Or, when in Firefox, go to Bookmarks, Organize Bookmarks and use the backup/restore within Firefox. Works great!!! x2 for over writing the Ubuntu partition with Mint, but first transfer all of your data to the shared data area!!

Re: Update iPod Touch firmware?

Even if you were able to install XP in VirtualBox, and get Itunes up and running you would still run into a bit of difficulty updating the firmware on your Ipod Touch... Trust me, I know this. Several times I tried to update it, and it failed, so I took it to a true Windows machine, and it totally l...

Re: Linux Mint 9 released!

I Just recently took the time to update from Helena to Isadora. I must say that installation was very speedy and it only took me about 20min total to upgrade, because I have a separate /home. Very nice release indeed!! Now that Ipod/IPhones are now supported, (havent tried it yet) I might be able to...

Re: What's the best way to try XFCE?

Absolute best way would be to try it via the bootable CD method. Second best would be to use a bootable USB stick. This will not harm your current installation, and will allow you to "try" before you install. I currently have Mint 8 Main x64 edition installed, and will probably install Mint 9 x64 XF...

Re: Upgrading from Mint 8 to Mint 9

i really like to use a non-Ubuntu-installer live cd for partitioning. Lately, Patrick Verner's PartEdMagic (http://partedmagic.com) has gotten really good for this. He repackages gparted and includes lots of other useful stuff for testing and rescue. This really is a great tool to have for sysadmin...

Re: Running Mint from USB from within Windows

You could install VirtualBox on your Windows installation and then boot your USB drive in a VirtualBox session. I think this is the closest you will get to booting your USB Mint install from within Windows. Download link below:

Re: Ubuntu upgrades

Which is why I never bother upgrading anymore. I tried it once, and it no kidding boogered my system up. Luckily I had moved all of my files, settings, etc. to a separate partition, and then just did a clean install... Much easier, and less time consuming IMO. When you upgrade, there is just too muc...

Re: What is gonna happen once mint runs out of letters?

I think when we run out of letters, we're going to rewrite the distro in Klingon and start over. There was a big debate about this and Klingon won out over Elvish by only two votes. Everyone was in favor or rewriting it in R2-D2's language, but we couldn't figure out how to put all the blips, bleep...

Re: Can you backdate the kernel in Mint 8?

You could try installing an alternate network manager, such as wicd from the Package manager to see if that solves your issue.

Re: Mint 8 possible bug

You could try installing the WICD network manager instead of the Gnome Net Manager that gets installed by default in Mint 8. I know on my laptop, wicd just seems to handle the connections better. I might have to re-install it myself, as I sometimes have dropped connections on my wireless network.

also if you want the GUI to be available, you need to install the package "clamtk" as well.

Re: Help needed on Calm Anti-virus

Clam installed by itself is a command line only tool. You must install "clamtk" from Synaptic, then the gui will be available under Accessories, I believe.

Which PS did you get? The antec one or the OCZ one?
You might need
