Re: LM 9 KDE update?

Carl, I'm not rushing things but the last update from Boo was on March 28th. I know he is working very hard and when he releases LM9 KDE it will shine.

LM 9 KDE update?

Hi Boo, how is the progress with the new Isadora release going. It is possible to give us an update? Probably I'm anxious to know what is coming and when. By the way, Helena is working so good and I love it, so I suppose Isadora would be as good or better. Don't rush to push it out of the door but a...

Re: KDE; my love, hate(crashes) relationship

I had problems during the installation but once it was installed it run as a charm, I love this version of KDE. I used to run Gnome but I fell in love with KDE and never looked back. I'm running the 32 bit version on a Dell Latitude laptop, 1 Gb of memory and 2.0 Mhz processor. It bits Kubuntu hands...

Application Launcher

Is there an application launcher in Linux Mint KDE8 similar to the one in Gnome? I would like to add an script for Skype to have my camera working. Any suggestions? Linux Mint KDE really rocks.

Re: a small tip about fonts in browser

rfruth. You are right, Chrome's fonts are awsome. Once the stable release is available FF will have to improve alot if they want to keep conpetitive.

a small tip about fonts in browser

Are you annoyed on how Firefox/Konqueror renders fonts and the size of the fonts in the menu/panel? Firefox in KDE 8 which is far better than other distros still not as sharp as in Helena 8 main edition, which is superb. Well, if you are annoyet with the fonts in Firefox/Konqueror download Opera 10....

Re: KDE 4.4 on the way

I had Kubuntu in a partition and upgraded to KDE 4.4 without a glitch. The reason I installed in Kubuntu is because my Linux Mint KDE 8 works like a dream and I don't want to risk having problems since I made it my main OS. May I know if I upgrade in Helena what the impact will be? Will remain minti...

Re: Marketing proposal: KDE to became the default DE for Mint 10

phd7 . You are correct, Main Edition was covered very well by the Linux Media after release, it is all over the place with excellent reviews. Unfortunately KDE 8 Helena is not getting the same treatment. This is disappointing because people tries new OSs based on what they read and in my opinion th...

Re: Marketing proposal: KDE to became the default DE for Mint 10

I run Helena Main Edition on one partition and installed KDE Helena in a different one. This is the beauty of the Linux Mint community, we have the privilege to use different environments and enjoy evry one of them. Which one should be Main? I believe that will be up to the devs. to decide. I moved ...

Re: Mint 8 KDE Install Experience

Me too, I thought the installation was broken, but I saw activity on my HDD and I let it go, it took for ever to install the OS but finally it did it. Upon on reboot I was extremely pleased because of the rendering of the fonts, the best ever on any KDE distro and as good as the main edition. Every ...
