I ran the Live CD and all works great. I also ran the install, and everything looks good so far. Excellent Job & Thanks!

I just started configuring my desktop and settings to talk to all the resources on my network.

Richard.a, you can install Evolution after the install is complete, if you want it. I just installed it, because I use it to interface with an Exchange server and its what I'm used to. It's available in the Synaptic Package Manager.

I had to put down http://www.terakin.de/LinuxMint-3.0-BETA-014.iso
The included traffic (500GB) was reached...
it seems like the best solution is the torrent... unfortunately, there are no seeds :-(

Well, I also thought 500GB should be enough. I was shocked when I saw the traffic log for yesterday 462GB of download.

The mentioned US page should still work.

wow... a lot happened sense i was gone...

I think i will wait this one out... i will get the final and try it... (sadly i dont have linux on my comp right now :'( )

I really feel the need to try the new Fedora 7 when it comes out so that will waste some of my time (it was supposed to be out today but noooooooooooo)
linux mint!

I have been looking at the Wiki and have seen a lot of progress has been made. Will there be a Beta 015 of Cassandra? I am also antious to see all the new artwork! It looked to me like things are going well and the new artwork was being added. Artwork seems to be a big focus in recent reviews. I want to see the Cassandra release do very well and climb further up the chart on Distrowatch!

Thank you, blogger. Much appreciated. It's a nice piece of work, and I feel there are many ways in which it is more useable than ubuntu. Haven't tried the KDE version, and likely won't unless things get quieter here :)

Thanks for the thought :)

BTW the machine I'm running the installed version on is a 64-bit mobo (K8MM-V) by MSI with an AMD processor. Just in case devs are interested :)

Prism 2.5 Wifi not working

Post by reh4c » Fri May 25, 2007 7:39 am

I just installed the latest Beta on my trusty Fujitsu subnotebook with a Prism Wavelan wireless card. However, network manager doesn't detect any networks, so I can't connect wireless. Previous Linux Mint releases worked fine with it. Any ideas? :? Thanks.

I installed it. It works great and I haven't seen any bug.
Thanks! :)

Having Pidgin in the default repositories sure is nice.
I added the following lines to my /etc/apt/sources.list to have Thunderbird2, Exaile 0.29 and Wine 0.9.37:
## Thunderbird
deb http://acorbeaux.free.fr/ubuntu feisty main
## Exaile
deb http://download.tuxfamily.org/syzygy42 feisty exaile
## Wine
deb http://wine.budgetdedicated.com/apt feisty main
I haven't found a repository for Sunbird 0.3. It would be great it LinuxMint could have a repo for it, especially when the next release (0.5) is almost there.

Thanks in advance :)
Absolutely don't use Wine! :wink: VNC is native to Linux. You can find the actual RealVNC viewer for Linux here: http://www.realvnc.com/cgi-bin/download.cgi
There's also another VNC client included with Ubuntu, and I think also with Linux Mint: http://www.debianadmin.com/remote-deskt ... buntu.html

If you want a nice Gnome GUI for the client, try: http://gnome-rdp.linuxforge.hu (Clem, have you considered including this by default?)

Congrats to all involved :D

rahim thanks for your reply, but that wasn't what I was asking, I'm afraid.

The server portion is already there, which is what the configuration link you sent me was all about.

Perhaps the viewer is also installed, but without a menu link anywhere. If so, I need to know the command to type in the CLI, and perhaps make a link to a new button.

I need to be able to use this system to view and/or control others on the LAN. It is already possible to view and/or control this system from others on the LAN.

Thanks anyway,

Richard

Hello again,

I think you just missed the relevant part in the link I posted..
.
http://www.debianadmin.com/remote-deskt ... buntu.html
Connecting from Ubuntu Machine

Open your terminal from Applications—>Accessories—>Terminal and enter the following command

vncviewer -fullscreen 192.168.2.23:0

now you should see the following message asking for password enter the password after complete success you can see VNC authentication succeeded message and starting remote desktop

VNC viewer version 3.3.7 - built Jul 4 2006 10:04:48
Copyright (C) 2002-2003 RealVNC Ltd.
Copyright (C) 1994-2000 AT&T Laboratories Cambridge.
See http://www.realvnc.com for information on VNC.
VNC server supports protocol version 3.7 (viewer 3.3)
Password:
VNC authentication succeeded

If you want to quit vncviewer

Press ‘F8′ and select Quit viewer
And the other two links are also for clients. The RealVNC for Linux package both the client and the server together. And there is a nice GUI for the client settings at http://gnome-rdp.linuxforge.hu/ as I mentioned.

Hope this helps! :D

how about including filezilla? I've seen a linux version became available recently - it's a very user friendly FTP client with the added bonus of being identical cross-platform

That's a great idea. It's too late for Cassandra though.

do we open a 3.1 suggestions thread or will you remember it? :D
Windows is extremely fast after a fresh install. If you want to make it stay that way: - don't use it.
