Check the mintUpdate logs:

cd /usr/lib/linuxmint/mintUpdate/logs
ls -lrt

and look at the last file in the list. It's probably a problem with your sources.list.

With Compiz-Fusion, when I hit Ctrl+Alt and click and hold the left mouse button, I am able to move the two desktops around, but it looks more like flipping a piece of paper over than the 3D Cube that I'm used to. Any suggestions?
Open the CompizConfig Settings Manager and click on General.
Next click on Desktop Size and change these 2 settings:
Horizontal Virtual Size and Number of Desktops to 4.
Actually, only Horizontal Virtual Size needs to be changed.

EDIT: and in Daryna the CompizConfig Settings Manager is found under Preferences - Advanced Desktop Effects.

Aloha, Tim

Hi there!

I'm waiting impatiently for the stable release and running the beta on daily now. I can say it is rather stable, but I have a few things to add to the list ;-)

After updating MintUpdate yesterday the settings (pretty much all of them) were reset to the default. Now it's a bit tricky having to browse to the icons again etc. Of course the other settings are not as time consuming to set again anyway it would be nice not to have to do it every time the app is updated (upgraded).

Another thing doesn't have much with Mint itself to do. Anyway, wine + compiz fusion = disaster. The system freezes really badly if i forget to switch off the visual effects and run some wine app.

On my machine compiz starts automaticaly and sometimes I need to disable it. Then enabling it again gives the cpu some hard times. It keeps around 100% and sometimes it won't go down until I actually reboot (log out/in doesn't help). But as I said I suspect it's rather compiz not mint.

I'll keep reporting if anything should come up

I've just read the thread and thought I'd throw in a few support answers
@ rootkowski
All partitions are supposed to be discovered during install, of course they need to be connected.
If not you can edit /etc/fstab and add a line for the offending partition like so
/dev/sda8 /media/sda8 ext3 defaults 0 2
You also may have to add a folder in /media with the name of your partition (in this case sda8)
The thing you experienced with nautilus is probably no bug but some quirk in your system
@ Lolo Uila
EDIT: I wonder if it has to do with the size of the drive? It is a 750GB hard drive...
You bet :)
@ puba62
You try to use a low spec computer with low memory and motherboard from PCchips ... not the recipe for success
Some of you would be helped by these how tos
I can confirm very heavy usage of resources by mintMenu.
I install kde right now and the menu has become
totally unresponsive!
Right now I got a message that mintMenu has quit enexpectedly.
I am using Linux mint Daryna.
mintMenu version is : 3.0 .
Pc is amd athlon xp2600 , 512MB ram.
I don't know whether this problem occurs only when I install packages.
Generally I like the idea behind mintMenu and linux mint but I am not satisfied
with the performance at all.
I also have the bug with the quit button in the menu not working but maybe now it's fixed with reinstalling dbus-X11.

Seems to me that ubuntu 7.04 was more fast and stable than 7.10 and
cassandra more fast and stable than daryna.
Seen that many times before in linux ( doin' an upgrade and getting a worse linux (Suse 9.0 to 9.1 ,Suse 9.1 to 9.2 ..) ..)
But the whole meaning in an upgrade would be to get a better linux don't you think?
I think it's preferable to have bugs in compiz let's say -that could be understood- .
I think linux and mint more specially
should reset it's priorities and I think it is top priority to have a bug free start menu.

This bug is for Daryna XFCE Beta

When I close Mplayer I receive a "Gnome_screensaver_control()" error. I am running a AMD cpu & nvidia video.

Nice work on this product!
