In fact, from my days of latin at school, "belligerent" as well as "belliqueux" both come from the latin bellum for war. Casus Belli means case of war, as in reason for, occasion, good pretext to go and bash your neighbours with sharp/heavy objects. Correct me if I'm wrong, but t...

Well, I'd like to put in my two cents: if anyone's going to ask for help, doing it politely has nothing to do with knowing how to use a forum, it's just basic, common courtesy. Asking seemingly stupid questions because you don't know the platform is one thing - I have and probably will ask my share ...

Caramba encore raté! Mon suisse-allemand est inexistant. :D Blöde, ça doit être stupide, non? Could you kindly translate, so I may understand at least a few shreds of what my fellow Swiss speak on the other side of the Röstigraben? And well, I might have speaking Italian. Or, more exotically, Romanc...

Good luck... You know, checksum before and after burning is your friend... :wink: it saved me a lot of frustration. ... and then you'll have the girl of your dreams! The one who'll boot with no errors! Well, I'll give it a try over the week-end. By that time I guess you'll have shared your experienc...

[Resolved] KDE card Games - invisible?

Ok, I got my cards to reappear and WITHOUT David Copperfield. I found the answer on KDE bugtrack (bug 67092), eventually. :D I'm posting the solution in case someone else has the same problem. In fact it was caused by my old KDE settings - I've a dual boot with a common /home, both KDE. So, a rm .kd...

Hello Uncle Bob,

Bea is the latest stable version of Mint.

Bianca is the next version; the beta release should be on Tuesday if I'm not mistaken...

Hope this helps! :wink:

Re: KDE card Games - invisible?

If you like excitement, why don't you download David Copperfield ? Hi Npap! Thanks for the welcome... I kinda like it here... Now, you've never tried the card games, have you? :D 'cause it's not what I'd call exciting , it's more like a kind of chewing gum for the eyes while I'm concentrating on so...

[Resolved] KDE card Games - invisible?

Hello, I installed KDE - my favorite environment so far - on top of the default Gnome. As I don't like the look of the Gnome card games I installed the KDE set and surprise! Everything looks normal except for the lack of cards. :shock: I can choose the game, the bottom of the screen indicates one mo...

From what I've seen - I've had a quick look around - it seems light, and highly customizable, given you're not afraid to go and work with what's under the hood. Supposedly it plays nice with Gnome, too. The screenshots I saw where quite nice, but it doesn't mean it works. That's basically why I aske...

Anyone tried FVWM-Crystal?

I stumbled on it recently, and I realised I've never had any feedback about it... most people I know are set on KDE or Gnome, with the occasional XFCE user...

So has anyone here given it a shot?

Thanks...

I had the same problem with the first disk I burnt - the checksum of the ISO was clean, but it hang after loading 16% of the kernel...

I re-burnt it at a slower speed, check the integrity of the new disk, and tada!

It installed like a breeze.

Better Boot Screens

Hello, New to Mint, and I enjoy it a lot now - but I must admit that I have to second Darkelve regarding the boot screen. The first impression I had after the HDD install was the text at boot - and I hadn't seen it for a while unless I'd selected the verbose mode (I've a dualboot with SUSE) - it fel...
