Re: Installing mint from USB Drive

Thanks. I had to rename linuxmint-11-gnome-oem-64bit.iso to a name that Universal-USB-Installer-1.8.5.7.exe would search for: linuxmint-11-gnome-dvd.iso

What's the official or best or user-friendly way to install Linux Mint 11 from a 1GB USB/flash drive?

And sometimes the Gnome panel fails to load some applet.

So how does one fix this Gnome-fails-to-load-some-applet problem?
What other problems are there with Gnome in Mint 11?

Re: Thinking of getting Gnome 3 on Linux Mint 11. Your thoug

riomhare,
thanks for your reply. I'm going to assume you're using Gnome 2.x right now, correct? If so, why don't you care for Gnome 3?

Re: Is Ubuntu11.04's only weakness the Unity issue?

jaslar,

I'm afraid i wasn't so clear in my question. The main thing I want to know is: If someone complains about Unity in UBuntu 11.04, why does someone like him have to recommend mint? Why not just stick with Ubuntu but remove unity and install gnome?

Thinking of getting Gnome 3 on Linux Mint 11. Your thoughts?

Thinking of getting Gnome 3 on Linux Mint 11. My idea is that the latest version of a program is almost always a better version. Would it be possible to upgrade from the default GNOME 2.32 (according to http://distrowatch.com/weekly.php?issue=20110509) to the latest Gnome, version 3? If so, how? Als...

Is Ubuntu11.04's only weakness the Unity issue?

I was planning on installing Ubuntu 11.04 on a brand new Toshiba laptop when I came across http://eyeonlinux.com/2010/11/02/unity-ubuntus-descent-into-madness. The writer of that blog criticizes Ubuntu 11.04 for its use of Unity and concludes: If you are unhappy about Canonical’s foolish decision to...
