Re: Linux Mint 16: The best Linux ever out!

Woot!

I haven't tried it yet, but I'm really glad it's good (although not surprised - the Mint devs are great!)

Thanks, guys!

Re: Ubuntu wants to start charging for use of repros by Mint

I knew this will happen some day! Canonical project has become very fishy lately! Mint has eaten much of its user base and Canonical is starting to worry that Mint will take it all! I read on the Ubuntu forums things like "Ubuntu has to be careful or it will lose it all to Mint" and all that jazz! ...

Re: What if Linux Mint moved away from Ubuntu?

I would prefer to see the Ubuntu middleman dropped, but I understand if the advantages it provides are enough that that is undesirable.

I don't have enough knowledge yet to understand this fully...

Re: Guides for your PC Games

Games are one of the main reasons I still typically use Windows on desktops as opposed to Linux. I love Linux, but I love to play games, mainly older games, and have had a lot of trouble in the past. I love stuff like Red Alert 2, Neocron, Phantasy Star Online Blue Burst, Dofus and many others and m...

Re: I Need Auto-Raise with Sloppy Focus BACK

I like the focus following the mouse, but I must admit normally I just click to raise a window. I quite like it though when it auto-raises after a few seconds. I think it would be great if Mint had lots of options like this. One of the reasons people choose Mint over Ubuntu is to have a more profess...

Re: Ubuntu wants to start charging for use of repros by Mint

It's only a matter of time before Clem rolls out a (likely Debian based, but not "pure" Debian) distro that is distinct from Ubuntu. That's where I see this grand project headed. I think that would be cool too, and I hope that all this goes well. I do understand Canonical's concern, but they do see...

Re: LMDE disapointment.

I guess the Debian Edition is more of a work in progress than normal Mint.

I too would like to see Mint drop the Ubuntu middleman, as it would be amazing to see rolling updates, etc.

However, I am unsure of the advantages of using Ubuntu for this, so I may be wrong here if they're particularly good.

Re: Getting Flash to work on Linux Mint

Not sure if this helps you or not (depends) but I managed to get YouTube to play BEAUTIFULLY on this old laptop with SMPlayer's SMTube.

Literally, nearly always 1080p full screen, it's wonderful! :)

Hope that is of some help, anyway!

Re: Using Banshee and other MP3 players

I love Foobar too! Plus Banshee and Clementine would be my top Linux players too. However, have you tried Amarok and/or XMMS2? Perhaps one of them can do it. There are many players on Linux, some of which are very flexible and modular, and so on. I have never attempted this so I can't really help yo...

He's probably right :)

However if you do have any machines that can't run Cinnamon, personally I would advise the XFCE version as I have found it to be excellent!

Re: Creating animated GIFs from videos?

To be honest I just tend to use online tools for this.

Such as this one for YouTube videos: http://yt2gif.com

There are some online for normal video to gif too.

I don't know about native ones though (for any OS).

I'll pay attention to this thread for sure :)

I'm really enjoying SRWare Iron at the moment. All the great stuff about Chrome, with more respect for user privacy and without the Google crap lol

Basically erm, the game isn't designed as a Linux game per se but does run through Wine and this is covered by the official website. It used to be pay-to-play but is not free-to-play and the reason I am posting about it is that the game has recently moved over from the company (which went out of bus...

Re: I think Linux has got this one :)

I just can't believe how far it's come in the 9 years I've been using it. It's basically gone from unusable to usable lol

9 years ago, only a really technically-minded person could use it really. These days, I reckon Linux Mint is a piece of cake! :)

Since you run Android, I'll assume your device has 512MB+ of RAM (Google's minimum specs). If so, you can run Debian Squeeze on it or Ubuntu. yeah it's erm... this phone: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HTC_One_S Debian Squeeze sounds interesting... but I don't wanna uninstall Android.. shame it might...
