Re: any difference between katya+gnome desktop and lxde edit

I have installed both Mint 11 main and Mint 11 LXDE, as dual boot. And the difference is obvious, LXDE runs clearly faster. But I miss the mint menu. I know I can install it on LXDE along with a lot of Gnome libs, but I'm affraid it will slow LXDE down, therefore the main difference would remain - t...

Re: What are Fast USB 2.0 brands (Flash Memory)

This is my recommendation - TRANSCEND 16GB JetFlash V700 (TS16GJF700).

Although it's usb 3.0, as usb 2.0 it performs - 30 MB read / 20 MB write !!! :shock:

Re: Acer Aspire AO522 Wireless Issues

Hi mookster1! I have a similar problem with my Acer 722, it is the same Brazos APU C-50 platform, just a slightly larger screen.

Re: Mint 11 on a 8GB flash with 3 partitions, possible?

Worked like a charm. Really there was no need to disable the hard drive. 8) 1st part is 2GB FAT32, 2nd part is 6GB EXT4, no separate swap part, after install and 2 mint updates + proprietary ATI drivers... ext4 is 3GB free. :wink: 1st part is auto mounted on boot, so reading/writing is enabled from ...

The full install to a flash drive was what I was suggesting :D So I did understand your question. I've got a four gig flash drive set up in the method I specified above. Little slow but other than that no qualms. Sorry, I thought you meant hdd install. :oops: I wanted to try this, but just to be on...

I did a full install (NOT Live USB) to a 4 gig flash drive and it works perfectly :shock: This is total news for me! I never thought that was possible. I'll try this but I'll install it from cd drive (just to avoid confusion of having 2 usbs at the same time) but previously I'll make 2 partitions o...

couldn't find any topic on this specific netbook For ubuntu based versions, the ubuntu forums are often the better option to search. I found http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1811178 which seems to address most issues. That thread was more than usefull, I'll give it a try... Thanks remoulder!

Probably yes? Mandriva´s seed makes 2 partitions "resize me" and "data" http://linux4us.org/mdv_seed.php Yes, I've read this, although it's a solution with 2 partitions and I could live with that (1st fat 32 active+boot+visible for data, 2nd hidden with linux + casper-rw), but it seems this tool ca...

Hi! I had Mint 11 installed on one partition. On my PC (P3 2,4 ghz, 1 gb ram) it ran slow, especially Firefox with more than 10 tabs opened. Also when I clicked on menu, it used to react almost 1 second later. :? So I decided to install, on a second partition as dual boot, Mint 9 XFCE, it ran faster...
