Re: [LINUX] If you live in the U.S.A. please sign this petit

Signed. A particularly good thought. I'd also like to see special Linux classes in school because the transition might be a little baffling to students who have only used Microsoft products.

Re: Petition to shorten excessive copyright terms in the Uni

Interesting, but would probably affect authors who have a long-term series going. Think in terms of Mercedes Lacky or Anne McCaffrey. I would certainly support doing something about patent trolls, though...

Re: Who switched from Ubuntu to Mint?

I switched earlier, I think. Mostly because I was looking for a new laptop and I found somebody who custom-makes them and you can choose the Linux distro.

Software Manager having hangups.

Okay, so I've been trying to install a few useful programs in Software Manager. It'll get to a certain percentage each time (65% for a Java package) and then just quit.

Re: Having mouse problems with Mint 12

I had the exact same problem with my old mouse and Ubuntu. What I would try... 1) Put a new battery in your mouse if it takes a battery, and if that doesn't work... 2) Get a new mouse designed for Linux. That's what I did at the same time I got my new laptop, and it's a 200% improvement over my old ...
