There are wayy too many replies to check if this has been mentioned already. It probably has, but I guess it cant hurt to make sure.

I'm running the Mint 8 KDE RC1 in VBox right now. It is absolutely beautiful. As Mint always is. I just have a few 'issues' that dont seem to make sense to me

*Gwenview and DigiKam both installed
*Amarok and Songbird both installed
*Gnome MPlayer installed

Aside from that and the fact that We'll probably never see a 64 bit version so I'll never actually be able to install this system .. I love it.

Really? I thought the 64 bit version was almost ready as well. And besides, I think you'd have no problem installing it to your system. I'm using it with a core 2 quad (64 bit processor).

I'm pretty sure that it's stated in this thread that the 64-bit KDE Helena should be right on the heels of the 32-bit version. I'm trying to resist the temptation to d/l the 32-bit version to check out what it's like because I don't want to have to install it again when the 64-bit one arrives.

It is according to the dev team.

I OBJECT !

How do you download images from a digicamera that can NOT be mounted like a USB storage drive? There are many cameras like that.
Digikam can import these - and NICELY - it is a mature app.
Gwenview cannot (at least I have searched through the entire menue - there is nothing).

On the other hand, Gwenview has more options to handle / manipulate images, I think. No feature parity at all between these 2 apps!
A KDE system is always more full-featured than, say, a fluxbox / XFCE or even Gnome system.

KEEP BOTH APPS - I'm lovin KDE mint the way it is.

Quick question, I'm using Banshee which is a GTK app.
How can I get my multimedia keys to work with it?
They work with Amarok, and they work with Banshee on Gnome.

Thanks!

Support questions in a support topic please
I think it's time to abandon this topic now that Helena KDE RC1 is officially released
