Re: e-mail

What exactly do you mean? Thunderbird is an email client for reading&sending emails. Any kind of emails. Wheather you have a different client at work (such as outlook) is not really important. But it is important, to know your email account settings, such as server (for example imap.google.com), pas...

Re: office 2007

Open office (current version) is like MS Office 2003. It doesn't have ribbons yet, so what? Things were fine even before them. Now that i used the Office 2007 for a few months i still have trouble finding some htings through all these ribbons and the way they are hidden. However there are some thing...

Re: upgrade from mint 8 to mint 9

EDIT in reply to Windows releases: Ubuntu LTS is released every 3 years. There shouldn't be any major issues upgrading those. And strictly speaking, if you have a separate /home partition, you won't need to backup your personal data when upgrading (you should, but you don't have to). I know because ...

Re: Progress...

Fantastic! Since my knowledge on this OS is limited i can not really help with testing. So i will wait for the final version, before burning.

Re: upgrade from mint 8 to mint 9

Depends on how much data one has... If upragdes are so badly done then why not offer users (during install) to make their home folder a separate partition. Or maybe even make it a default option. Wouldn't that be friendly for newbies?! This is my "official" request :D Especially Mint should have thi...

Re: Minimum memory requirements?

I tried Lubuntu (live session) on 256MB ram and works very nice. Lubuntu is Ubuntu with LDXE. It's not just ram here is also processig power, bios... Ubuntu also worked on 256 MB ram with Live CD although a bit slow. Still it was much faster than WinXP currently is (i mean 10 minutes to boot, what i...

Re: Progress...

Re: Progress...

83 meg idle footprint, with terminal open and htop running. After installing guest additions, memory size went to 92 meg, same as I'm seeing in Mint 8/LXDE. Oh wow! that's really great! I will try this one then on a 256MB notebook. Already tried Lubuntu there and it worked great, but it has some th...

Re: Linux Mint 9 released!

Hope this is the right place to ask - i am interested if there is any approximate release date for "lightweight" editions such as LXDE?

Re: XFCE or LDXE of the Mint flavour?

Since no one has answered I will give you my 2 cent worth. Short answer, you should be able to run either the Lxde or Xfce versions on that laptop, but...I would expect a frustrating experience. Why a frustrating experience? Will it be too slow? I actually need it to be similar (in looks and interf...

XFCE or LDXE of the Mint flavour?

I tried Mint before, but was too heavy for Compaq 700 notebook 1.2Ghz AMD with only 256MB RAM. I see now that other versiony are available and i am particularly interested in LDXE. I ran Lubuntu on computer and works fine. 9.10 Ubuntu Live CD variants used to crash the GUI, but 10.04 Lubuntu LiveCD ...

Re: Having a few problems with LiveCD

it seem all was a hardware issue. It works fine on my other computer. although a bit slower than Ubuntu. maybe LiveCD is not optimised so much?!

Uf this will be a tough one to decide.... both look good. :D

Firefox in terminal if i remember there was something written <defunct> along with it. or something liek that when my brother tried to do it via terminal. although he was so fast with commands i couldn't follow what he did. We tried a cou...

Having a few problems with LiveCD

I am more or less a newbie in Linux. I intend to get a notebook used for business and i want to equip it with open source programes. I decided Linux OS should be the operating system as i see the GUI developed a lot since i first tried it. I decided to try a distribution using LiveCD before i make a...
