what do you use?

Post by thetank »

Mint is a great distro. However there's about a few hours of browsing and hacking to get mint working the way I want. I had to add some sources for apt to fix some ubuntu problems I was having , another source for cairo dock, searched web for google gadgets.

I hope that this forum post can find out the software mint users use and install after installing mint.

:cry: what kind of special software you have?

My Mintis allways running after a few minutes, I switch to EVOLUTION, install BLUEFISH [web-editor], IMAGEMAGICK [converting ...] GTHUMB [easy editing for pictures] GNAC [soundconverter] TORCHAT [secure messenger] GRSYNC [for backup].
But the most is ready to work. If I ask my Mint with

Code: Select all

dpkg -l | wc -l

it tell my I have 1536 packages :shock: should be enough.

I think the most people will not install a lot, because Mint looks pretty completely :mrgreen:
