I've noticed with Mint 13 that after a restart, or logging out and back in, all windows lose their GTK theme setting and they are left with a black border that contains no button to close or minimize. I then have to go into Cinnamon settings, change the GTK theme and then change it back. I didn't have this issue with Mint 12 and its using the same version of Cinnamon, right? Anybody else experience this?

Everything seems to be working fine here. Installed all the apps I normally install, compiled my custom kernel, nvidia drivers on 560m, loaded cinnamon apps. No issues I've ran into so far. Loving it right now, been waiting for 13 LTS for quite sometime now. Good work guys!

I haven't been having said issues with GTK themes on my Mint 13 Cinnamon install. It might have something to do with your hardware? Or maybe you need to reinstall it? Idk. But, as of right now, Mint 13 works perfectly fine for me. I just don't like the replacement for lightdm much. But I can live with it.

Add me too the list as well. Bit of a PITA but it's the only issue I have. Apart from that everything's working great.

If this is the only issue we can find I think we are good to go lol. I agree its a PITA but not a deal breaker for me.

Well I updated VirtualBox, but the problem I had before still persists. It's only when I have 3D acceleration on though.

I have a strange bug:

I'm used the option to auto-use the remaining space alongside Windows, and grub was installed on my USB pendrive (mapped as sdb on Live Mint) instead my hard drive (mapped as sda on Live Mint).

I've booted from the pendrive (created from iso using LiLi - Linux Live USB Creator).

How can I submit this installer bug?

Well, I got the two versions of Linux Mint 13 RC, both are felt very fast, especially with the MATE desktop version. The desktop Cinnamon did not load on my machine, since it still needs graphics acceleration, so I loaded a desktop fallback mode that really works well. I found a great ugly bug in both editions: They have problems to connecting to the Internet, cost me several times using the Network Manager and I recognized the connection to the Internet, nor walked me using "sudo pppoeconf". Hopefully this is corrected in the final version should be borne in account that it is an LTS version.-

I've tested the internet connection both wired and wireless, and both work flawlessly. I don't know why it isn't working for you correctly. What kind of network card are you using? And is it wired or wireless?

So, I'm listening to music in Mint 13 Cinnamon with Banshee. I noticed that the Banshee icon shows in the system tray area.

Should it be like this? Or is this just a bug?

Finally I am done with installing mint 13 with MATE. I used fglrx without any problem(I think cinnamon gave problems because of fglrx.. that is my guess), MATE is really fast.. and seems like very stable. It is just like I am working in my mint 11(I love it :D ). Still I am installing all the required packages. Thanks Clem and all the developers who are working hard to bring this release.

That's not a bug, that's a feature!
The same for VLC:

Somewhere on the blog announcement Clem said that banshee kept its icon so it was compatible with other DEs like Xfce.

If anyone is having trouble with the G-streamer bug not playing some MP4 videos in Minitube or other players... I found this:

You're right: http://blog.linuxmint.com/?p=2010#comment-64409
"Edit by Clem: (...) For Banshee, we enabled the systray icon despite the fact that Cinnamon doesn’t need it so that it would be compatible with all DEs out there (MATE and Xfce in particular)."

I wonder why would it not be needed?

Because it is already integrated into the volume applet:
