Re: Linux Mint 6 RC1 Bug Thread

I haven't yet explored this or other 6rc1 threads to see if this has already been reported, but Brasero doesn't work on my rigs, refusing to actually Burn with messages claiming that blank media has insufficient capacity. This also happens with Brasero 0.6.1 in Mint4 but not with Brasero 0.7.1 in Mi...

Re: Linux Mint 6 "Felicia" RC1 released!

Further congratulations to Clem and his team. This pre-release version is far better than many formal releases. I applied the new Software Manager Refresh straight after hard drive installation and am impressed by the graphical repository browse capability and Graphics, Agave looks as though it will...

Re: Linux Mint 5 Elyssa officially released!

It's an Amazing distribution ! A really Great job by the team. I love the way that it's retained the newbie-friendliness of Daryna and avoided the start-up menu complications of 'the Heron' (which it seems to be 'leaner and meaner' than) and even in LiveCD mode, Elyssa matches XP responsiveness on m...

Re: Daryna Menu needs to work like Gutsy's

For Information - the Install autoscan process seems to work OK identifying other OSs and listing them in Menu.Lst but then doesn't display them all upon booting, so denying access. HOWEVER downloaded qgrubeditor_2.5.0-1_i386.deb FIXES IT through use of it's 'Reload' process, creating a simpler, unc...

Daryna Menu needs to work like Gutsy's

When installing Daryna in a multi-boot configuration, with default automatic GRUB scan and menu setup it can find other OSs, like XP and Vista, even adding them to Menu.Lst, but then fails to add them to the boot menu, whereas Gutsy Gibbon does. A better Daryna Menu.Lst should encourage wider use. E...

'New' Features

Sorry to be a newbie wet blanket, but v3.1 Celena is proving more complex and therefore less stable than v3.0 Cassandra on my Northwood Pentium 4 PCs etc. Cassandra is great, but repository downloaded Kaffeine can't lock on to transmissions when scanning. The Texan PCLinuxOS-2007 has a version alrea...

Please keep GNOME

I am a newbie to Mint and Linux, but a very old software-intensive systems manager and user. Windows Vista et al appears to be becoming an unaffordable and flawed system, so a free and more reliable Linux distribution could be what the world needs. Like Windows there is little or no Linux configurat...

Community Edition Download Problem

Thank you for the helpful response and Welcome to the Forum. It was one of the Mirrors which had the wrong file made available as the Community version. As I write, a different mirror is much more slowly downloading the fuller version, saying that it will take another four hours over my 3.8Mbps conn...
