Re: Is Mint for me?

Thanks for the warm welcome and all your suggestions. :-) I guess I wa a bit unclear at first: I've already tried Unity, Mate, Cinnamon, KDE etc. and Mate is my choice, be it on Ubuntu or on Mint. As the LTS for Lucid is about to phase out, I was about to update to precise (with Mate instead of Uni...

Re: Is Mint for me?

Alternatively you can just install either cinnamon or MATE on your current Ubuntu system Cinnamon won't run on Lucid; Cinnamon needs Gnome 3. And installing MATE on Ubuntu will not give you the same experience as on Linux Mint; the Linux Mint developers have done a lot of work to make sure MATE loo...

Re: Am I secure

I guess if you are worried that someone will plant a keylogger on your machine and steal your password for your bank or credit card, you could always boot with a live CD just for such financial transactions (don't do any other browsing), then reboot to your normal OS for casual web browsing. It is ...

Re: Maya LTS vs Nadia?

You can have a look at Regarding Mint 9 LTS Isadora to understand LTS philosophy. Regarding Maya and Nadia, all features of Cinnamon and MATE can be installed by enabling backports. Mint 14 Nadia has better software manager and Cinnamon is fast evolving. If you are using it for lighter works like li...

Re: Is Mint for me?

Like others have said MATE will be more comfortable if you switch from gnome2, which Lucid had as default desktop. MATE is a fork of gnome2. However, Cinnamon is also a good one. There is no learning curve. Most of the things you can find it through GUI. If you are looking for some more functionalit...

Re: Linux Beginners Search Engine

For Linux Mint it would perhaps make sense to be able to search since April or since October. However, I thought your search was also for users of other Linux distros? Personally I most frequently use Google's "past year" when searching. If you can't do a relative search like that, perhap...

Re: Linux Beginners Search Engine

Hi All

As you all may have noticed, I have recently made a few modifications to LBSE. I have added date range filters. I am a little confused whether I should set filters from Jan or from April when ubuntu versions are released.

Please can somebody help in this matter.

Thanks and Regards

Re: Back up Browser

Yes, what's going to happen if there is no more Flash from Adobe. They stop and do only security backports of Flash 11.2 So there is no moonlight for years and it looks like there will be no Flash. Is that the end for Linux or am I missing something?? :? According to Steve Jobs Flash is primitive t...

Re: Back up Browser

Your mention of memory usage prompted me to have a quick look at FF and Slimboat. Slimboat usage of both memory and cpu is about half of FF. 12-15 tabs!! I have never had that many tabs open at one time in my life, I would usually have 2-3 sometimes up to 6 never more. Chrome still freezes. I like ...
