Re: Your thoughts on jumping from 9 to 13?

I was unable to install Linux because the CD ROM on this machine wasn't working, then i found out about the Virtual Clone Drive but that was for Windows, it appears you have a similar situation only your running Linux. After diving around the different forums i found this, its called a CDEmu. :) htt...

In the tutorials it was written that mint4win would only wqrk if you were running a 64 bit well i had or thought i had a 32 bit and then somethin...

Hi guys I'm back and have i the story this story.. i know i know this tutorial was meant for "Mint 12 Lisa" but it was there so i thought I'd give it a test drive "Warning" read the second sentence where it says "do this at your own risk" If there was an easier way I'd take it, being a beta tester t...

Re: Splash

I'm wondering if its possible to import packages from a different distro in order to make this splash work. In the main repository as you scroll down near the bottom you'll see: "plymouth-theme-mint-logo" and "plymouth-theme-mint-text" I'm as green as green can be so that's why i ask.. :mrgreen: htt...

When i was using Mint 11 Katya there was an option in the repository actually two "Plymouth Theme Mint Text and Plymouth Theme Mint Logo" Now that I'm using Mint 13 Maya they seem to have vanished. The reason i ask, because with those installed i had a splash screen, made it rather colorful.. :mrgre...

Re: Thanks For The Ride

Maybe a moderator could move these last three posts to a forum where members that are having a tough time would see it just to make things a little bit easier for them? :mrgreen:

Re: Thanks For The Ride

This new interface is very nice great job to the developers. Your not going to believe this one it came as a welcome surprise to me. When this computer was built the technician said he built in some extras and this was one of them i guess. Read this thread down to the 9th post and feed that command ...

Thanks for the reply Karl, maybe I'm not talking the right lingo here.

Thanks For The Ride

This pretty much sums it up for me and others like me, I'm new at this and won't be able to navigate my way through these tutorials to "eliminate extra baggage" in order to install the new Mint 13 Maya without the mint4win, you see i have a 32 bit system and "only those with a 64 bit" will qualify.....

Well i should have node better than to take some untested advice and run with it, oh not that anything got hurt excepting maybe my feelings.
