Re: Mint - Debian install experiences

I liked the partition setup and found it to be quite handy, though I question whether a regular person would have the time or patience for it. At least it was graphical and had some help available, which was nice. The computer gave error after error when booting up. I sat at the computer 'hoping' th...

How do we specify which release we have? I've been looking around on the site and I'm not able to find it.

Re: Memory usage inceasing after prolonged use... Any reason

I find that each time I open and shut a program the mem usage increases. That would be the normal part, an application has started and requested some memory, the shutdown of another application does not in any way relate to the start of a new application The applications, if written correctly will ...

Memory usage inceasing after prolonged use... Any reason?

This is not an urgent question, but one out of curiosity. So if you're bored feel free to help out: Lets say I boot up the laptop and run System Monitor to check the memory usage. It may say the system is using 150 MiB. Then I'll run a some of programs such as firefox, rhythmbox, vlc, gedit... after...

Re: Linux Mint Debian (201009) released!

This is the most snappy and responsive 'non-lightweight' distro I've tried. And I've tried dozens of them!. It feels so great to have things respond under the mouse without that lag time. Also, I found that it's very memory and CPU efficient: 150 MiBs memory 0.2 - 0.5% (idle) CPU Even when I move th...

I have to admit that it took me a while to find it as well. I was looking for 'synaptic' and kept skipping it.

Re: Mint 8 KDE Install Experience

I was able to install Mint KDE. Though it looked as if certain information was missing: When the programs where 'installing', not copying to the drive, there was only a small percentage bar with no other info. In the top left corner was two little icons. Something was incorrect there. :? Once it boo...
