Coming back to Mint

Post by johnwillis »

Hi all,

I've been away from Mint for about 5 years - I've used it occassionly on live CD's to fix PC's etc.

I have just installed it on my newest custom built PC - i7, 32gb ram, ssd - I'm impressed how far Mint has come since I first used it back in 2007.

I will be trying to use it as my daily machine - anyone care the share the favourite apps you install after a base install?

I'll try to be a bit more regular on these forums again. :D
Yours Faithfully,

- John

Hi John,

Welcome back to the fold.
Gparted is indispensable.
For me so is Xfburn, Audacious, Qasmixer
A nice tool is clonezilla
Light travels faster than sound.
That's why some people appear smart until you hear what they are saying.

I'm using the KDE desktop and for some reason Kate isn't installed by default. Other applications: nano, htop, wmctrl, Gimp, Inkscape, Blender, asciidoc, quiterss, thunderbird, dvdstyler, youtube-dl.
