Re: Applications loading too slow

Well, you not the only one. I notice that most of the apps are taking some "sweet time" to load. I dual boot with win 7 and is much faster. I installed the Cinalerra (video editing) and load in a flash. I guess that depend of app to load. I have the v16 Mate.

Re: Intalling from flash drive: Can't recognize ISO

When you format the usb stick, make sure is set as primary partition. I made a "booboo" and set as logical and could not boot. Try the rawriter too and see if that help. I,too, have win7X64.

Re: Solve boot problems with AMD and NVIDIA graphics cards

I had that problem with 14, but since 16(Mate) I have no video problems. My laptop is Gateway NE71B. Does the AMD drivers had to do with keyboard problem?. Sometimes the keyboard do not boot and have to re-boot to get the keyboard working. No problem in win7 and Fedora(removed).

Thank you for "pissing" on my laptop. It is NE71B and works very well with Mint 15(KDE). How would you defy "good looking laptop"?. The laptop comes with win 8, but lasted only 3days. Nothing, but Mint on my laptop now.

desktop menu

How do I add the Mozzila ( and others) to desktop. I try to drag with right and left, but did not work. Just come from KDE ( other distros). Did not like KDE as was not "user friendly" and crash frequently.
