Re: Mint 14 and screen resolution issue

You mean installing amd radeon graphics drivers?

I noticed that there isn't anymore driver installation system in mint 14 controls, like it was in Mint 13.
So is there manual installation instructions?

Is there instruction how to make xorg.conf file. Isn't it used if it's defined?
Can you only define monitor setup there or do you need make full configuration?

Re: Mint Home Server

My opinion is that there is no reason to have Mint server. Because Mint is design to be desktop distribution. There are many other distribution what are better for server use. So I don't think it's wise to use resources to try to do everyting for everyone. Better just be excelent in one thing (deskt...

Re: Closed/Microsoft vs GNU/Linux Assessment

Many other users have stated this, but it's first and foremost a preference thing. And secondly, it's a matter of what you can and can't do in any given OS. In my opinion this says it mostly. It's all about what person wants from OS. If anyone tries using something the way it's not design, they wil...

It basicly sayed something like Error can't see partion /dev/sda3 or something like that. It also could not ...

Re: I love cinnamon, but technically it makes no sense ...

I don't see the Orginal posters point.

Linux Mint 13 is with Cinnamon and is design directly for Gnome 3.x versions. Linux Mint main editions follows Ubuntu development lines.

it's like OP is saying that Ubuntu or/and Gnome has no future.

Re: Poll: Desktop environments

Having usable defaults functions is different than having ability customize the enviroment for your own personal use. Because no everyone can create functions if they don't exist yet. But customize means there is allready function, but it's question do you want to use it. Bad design "defaults" is so...

Which one?

Are there any other gnome3 based options?
That is good question.
For Mint 13's default DE there isn't really any other good Gnome 3 based DE than Cinnamon.

Re: Cinnamon to be default in Mint 13?

Definitely won't happen, development on MGSE stopped several months ago - it will be MATE or Cinnamon. I can understand that mate and cinnamon is in Mint 13. But Mint 13's default DE has to be Gnome 3 based DE. Mint 12 moved to Gnome 3. Mate is still build around Gnome 2. Why would any new distribu...

Re: Poll: Desktop environments

It's the most ignorance to think that, what you self like is what others should like. And the same goes for the Unity haters as the utter outrage continues. Yes, thinking that others has to hate what you self hate, is also ignorant. Of course it's very easy to understand the Unity situation. People...

If you ask from me. In Linux Mint the Mate has done so that gnome 2 files have been renamed so that MATE DE can run over the Gnome 2 in same OS where is also Gnome 3 files.

Re: Why was MATE created?

In my opinion there was no reason to create Mate. Because Mate is connected Gnone 2 what is older version of Gnome. Anyone who doesn't want to use Gnome 3 for any reason, can use older version of the Linux Mint where is Gnome 2. I mean sooner or later people have to give up Gnome 2 and MATE, because...

Re: Poll: Desktop environments

In my opinion best way is allow people to choose they desktop on installation of Linux Mint.
I think ability choose is allways better than pre-selected choises or all choises allways installed.
