Where to get default Mint 13 desktop wallpaper?

hello, Strange request, but I would appreciate some help. Am fixing my nephew's Win7 laptop and want to put the standard Mint 13 Maya wallpaper as his wallpaper in Win7. I know I know... it raises all sorts of questions, jokes, etc... but he also has a desktop running MInt so he's not a Win-a-holic....

Re: Cinammon or MATE on old-ish 1GB RAM netbook?

I'm running an HP-Compaq NC6000 with crappy graphics. Mint 11 graphics did not work. I've been thinking it's the end of the line for this machine on MInt, but now i tried Mint 13 Cinnamon and it is faster than I've ever seen it run. The whole reason I'm online tonight was to see if anybody else is f...

Thank you for the reply and your experience. I currently run mint 13 Cinnamon 32 Bit on a Optiplex 755 USFF. I tested mine out on my TV @ 1080P with no issues.(not using fullscreen) Sounds great. I decided to go with / test out a 745 USFF. If that chipset freaks out on Mint 13 Cinnamon, I'll now kno...

Mint users: Please ask LEAP motion controller 4 Linux vers.

Hello, Please write to the LEAP motion controller people and let them know how important a Linux version is. A simple email is all it takes. If they don't know there is Linux demand, it gets put on the back burner. It's our job to tell them "this is cool and we and we will use it." https://live.leap...

Thanks. Yeah... I know those machines (gx270, 280, etc...) plus it works great on 745s and 755s with graphics cards. It's this Intel GMA 3000 and 3100 that I would appreciate specific experience with. So if there is anybody reading with that experience on those particular integrated graphics systems...

Re: cron to play a radio show? How do I?

Thank you. Will give this a shot.

How do I edit a crontab file to delete a job (e.g. test settings I use now to test how this works or change settings later on?)

Will have more questions or results when they occur.

Best regards,
