Clem

you made it again.
On time and couldn't spot any flaws so far.
ATI card still installs through envy without a glitch.
Personally I prefer Open Office but this is a matter of preferences nothing to do with the general features your distro brings.

Just downloaded miniKDE and started playing around with it...haven't installed yet. Initial impression: Nicest looking Linux desktop ever! Thanks for the mini version...now I can play too...and congrats on a great looking distro. Now to shake it out on my system!

Just... GREAT

Post by The Freshmaker » Sat Apr 21, 2007 4:57 am

Hey clem!
Yep, you DID it! I'm using Mint since Bea and I can say Bianca KDE is not only the best Mint, but even the best Linux distribution I've ever used. I starts quick from live CD, installs well, is even faster from HD, brings all codecs I need, is stable and... it looks fresh and minty!
Congratulations! :D

looks really great from what I have seen using the Live CD (have not got round to installing it yet). I have created a torrent at LinuxTracker if anyone wants to use that http://linuxtracker.org/torrents-detail ... 3997&hit=1

Anyone have a torrent for the miniKDE?

I wasn't going to switch to KDE, but since I crashed GNOME Mint with Envy from Romeo, why not?

Choosing Different Language During Install Works !

Post by bernado » Sun Apr 22, 2007 9:19 am

Hy Community,

I successfully installed Binaca KDE. And the best, I did the install in German !
I choosed German Language for LiveCD Mode and then I installed in German. No problems, the installer didn't crash. Is this okay or just luck? 8)
Installation Notes:
- do not install anything and keep your session in English if you're planning to install. You can always change the language once the system is installed (this is due to a problem in the installer).
Someone should modify this at the download page for Bianca KDE.
And by the way, Bianca KDE runs flawlessly and itś the best of all the Kubuntu Bases. :roll:

Thanks for the KDE Version, its fine.

But I have two Problems, after installing it:

1.) After each reboot the keyboard layout in kde is US, and not german, as I selected while installing bianca. I alway change keyboard layout in kcontrol, but after reboot it is US again. How could I change that permanent?

2) Knetwortmanager is allways starting up with kdesu and asking for the password. Is that necessary?

Hy Florian,

I did the following: Systemeinstellungen (systemsetting), Land/Region& Sprache (County and Language) selected Deutschland (German), then anwenden (apply), go to Tastaurlayout (Keyboard) and "Hinzufügen" (Add) the language you need. Make sure that the new language is on top or delete the other language. This woks definetely

Knetworkmanager. I had to delete it, because I am connnected via DSL Modem to Internet using a networkcard, I dont use a router. In this case you have to delete the netork-manager. In the new version Kubuntu/Ubuntu Feisty this step is not necessary. I hope I could helpjavascript:emoticon(':wink:')

Clem,

Finally found a few minutes to install Mint KDE. It is outstanding. My goodness, what an achievement! Thank you.
