Hi, It's a fair point and I'm sure people will talk about that more and more as Linux Mint gets more popular. This grey area needs to be defined and looked at. If you see any precise problems with Linux Mint in particular please tell us and we'll take necessary actions. If these drivers are indeed i...

Hi, It really depends on what's needed for them to work. If it's just including a package (like we did for 915resolution), then there's no problem as long as these drivers fit on the CD. But if it requires configuration and better hardware detection... then I'm afraid we won't do it. The reason is s...

I'm not sure how much work is actually involved in making a x64 version of Mint. The problem is, I don't have any x64 hardware to test it...

RSS and IRC

Hi, A new IRC channel was opened for Linux Mint. Server: irc.spotchat.org (port 6667 or ssl_port 6697) Channel: #linuxmint.com As the website and forums are often down these days, this is great news for us. Another good news? An IRC bot will notify the channel for each post on the forum. :) Also, if...

No, you'll have to install Bea.

If you want, you can install the Kubuntu desktop on top of Barbara by installing the following package: kubuntu-desktop.

If you do that, I recommend you add the KDE 3.5.5 repos first, as explained here:

Hi, It's both. If you believe in freedom you should not try to promote patents, intellectual property and proprietary formats/software. The concept of property itself goes against the concepts of sharing and freedom... Debian is very clear on this and their policy is extremely strict. Ubuntu in a le...

Donations for Dedicated Hosting

Hi, Linuxmint.com is hosted by Servage.net. The server is shared with other customers. When linuxmint.com receives too many visitors, the number of requests on the server goes higher and this generates a higher CPU load. Servage.net simply monitors the number of requests ran within a day, and if the...

Hi,

The plugin issue was mentioned and we're currently looking at it. Appart from wmv, we found that Firefox would not play quicktime or even avi or mpg movies.. This will definitely be fixed in Bea.

Hi Aero,

It looks like it does alright. I'll have a look at this and try to improve the selection of plugins for the next release.

Hi Snucal, We can certainly consider it. Ekiga was removed though and it is open source. The reason for it to be removed was that we believed people didn't use telephony as much as other more important stuff.. Maybe the best is to ask people what they want. I'll organize a vote for this. Thanks for ...

Hi Aero, The reason for it to be blue is simply because we didn't find the talent and the time to work on our artwork. As you said the important is the user experience. At the moment we're using the best blue artwork we found from places like art.gnome.org and gnome-look.org. We would love to develo...
