Re: Just a few questions

To your original post: just Google it or look on the Mint home page. For your second post: Mint is built right from Ubuntu basically. It's very similar and often uses the same update packages. In my opinion, Mint is much more of a smooth transition over from the Windows or Mac world than Ubuntu, or ...

Re: Mate and Cinnamon

as the previous poster said, you can install multiple "desktops" on one box. Before you sign in, click on change session to see all the desktop enviroments you have. Btw, it might be better for you to just stay on Maya. I did that switch and it wasn't the most "fun" thing. but if you do decide to up...

Re: Installing latest point release of cinnamon on mint 13

Can you update your Cinnamon to 1.6 even if you stay on Mint Maya 13?
Also, where can you see what version of Cinnamon I'm using?

Uploading Avatar Pics

This might be simple and I'm just missing it, but how do you upload a local picture for your profile to use as your avatar?
I see the URL link and the "Flags", but no where to upload pictures I have here on my box...

Re: MATE vs CINNAMON vs KDE

They have a KDE and Xfce version of Mint Maya 13. IMO, the Xfce desktop is the best desktop for "lightweight" options. I don't believe they've released a download for the newer Nadia 14 for Xfce or KDE, it usually takes them a number of months to come out with these. But Maya 13 is great, I use Cinn...

Also, if you've only had Mint on since Saturday, maybe it's good for you to go ahead and upgrade because you probably don't have much changes to make. The "fresh" install is the best for all upgrades in...

Re: How to update from MATE 13 to 14?

I mean, really, there's no reason to upgrade. Obviously the newer version will have things that yours doesn't, but if yours is working good and you have a lot of custom software or settings, then don't upgrade. There is actually a way to do a live "upgrade", but it's not ideal. Read this: http://com...
