A friend of mine has Windows 8 and i tried to work with it - all i can say is 'yuck'!

Now i want to propose she dual boot with LM 16 but it's not a LTS so i was wondering if it is possible to upgrade when the time comes or is it better to re-install?






Wonder if 40hz has made it his definite OS?

Is it just me?
I find the sound from Youtube comes out better on headsets in LinuxMint.
Can't say the same for integrated speakers though.

@TaoPhenix,
Do tend to let myself be uselessly distracted by gadgets.
It's hard 'cause our eyes always want to see more and all the other senses too!
Windows 7 is truly one of the best Microsoft has ever come out with and i still don't know it as good as i should.
Too busy dabbing with various Linux distros and now, with a Google Nexus 7!
Handy stuff but also time consuming...

Must admit though, that LinuxMint 16 (especially Cinnamon), worthy to be installed over old Vista.

Too bad ScreenShotCaptor doesn't work in Linux.
With its own scan driver, it could have done the job replacing CanoScan's ?

Thank you for the excellent footwork Edvard!
That webpage is another keeper for sure!

At least 40hz has spared me from doing what that bird did to its computer.
Quite the depiction that was!  cheesy
Have that exact want when obliged to work with someone who still has Vista.  thumb down
57  Main Area and Open Discussion / Non-Windows Software / Re: LINUX: Linux Mint 16 "Petra" just released on: December 16, 2013, 03:04:47 PM
That's what i always try to do 40hz.
In fact, i went over to LM forums, not only post link and text of your solution but also [Solved] in the header (proper étiquette).

Suppose the CanoScan LiDE70 is a hopeless case though.
But that's okay, i'm not into big scanning projects lately.
58  Main Area and Open Discussion / Non-Windows Software / Re: LINUX: Linux Mint 16 "Petra" just released on: December 16, 2013, 12:14:47 PM
@40hz!

I really wasn't expecting any kind of miracle to happen here, but you just made my day!
hplip was already there so i went onto the next step hplip-gui and there was one item missing.
Installed that, then went to preferences and the HP toolbox told me i was missing a driver i managed to download from 'recommended' option and it worked!!!  Thmbsup
Woohoooh!!!  Cool

You should apply for a job a LinuxMint!

Muchos gracias hermano!

I didn't really want to post this!
LinuxMint 16 Cinnamon installs the driver for the HP 1018 printer but it can never print anything.
Tried out Pinguy and there's no support for that printer either.
ElementaryOS (even if it keeps asking for user p.w. to install a driver at boot) works just fine.
Even if the later is nice and fast too, i still prefer LinuxMint Cinnamon.
Can't have your cake and icing.

No problem and... thank you for introducing me to another good linux webpage! Wink

40hz, i believe the 'here' link is missing.
On the same wintery slope of reviews... i don't recall Dedoimedo ever so enthused about a linux distro here.

@40zh

That's better!
Went to the nvidia319 (recommended) in settings, rebooted things look better.
Thanks!  Thmbsup

BTW, glad i could have been of some use to you 40hz!
It's odd that Chromium has the option to hide system title bar and borders.
Guess Dedoimedo is right on his recent rant about Mozilla ?
66  Main Area and Open Discussion / Non-Windows Software / Re: LINUX: Linux Mint 16 "Petra" just released on: December 09, 2013, 02:08:11 PM
Here it is :
Graphics:  Card: NVIDIA G96M [GeForce GT 130M] bus-ID: 01:00.0
           X.Org: 1.14.3 drivers: (unloaded: fbdev,vesa) FAILED: nouveau Resolution: 1366x768@60.0hz
           GLX Renderer: Gallium 0.4 on NV96 GLX Version: 3.0 Mesa 9.2.1 Direct Rendering: Yes

(something is missing or failing).

That Toolbar Autohide is working just fine. Here it is at work:
Uploaded with ImageShack.us
I've got the LM panel sent to the top, could this have an impact?
Thunderbird behaves in same manner.
Not very nice when you a black theme and nice long greyish horizontal bar.
67  Main Area and Open Discussion / Non-Windows Software / Re: LINUX: Linux Mint 16 "Petra" just released on: December 09, 2013, 08:41:57 AM
40hz,

If you can help out on this, i'd appreciate it!
1. i find graphics grainier than say, PCLinuxOS (changing monitor settings doesn't do anything to improve).
2. how to change font and even better, make title bars disappear (or autohide) in Firefox for example?
I've got "toolbar autohide" which works just fine in Windows but not on Linux Mint Cinnamon 16.
68  Main Area and Open Discussion / Non-Windows Software / Re: LINUX: Linux Mint 16 "Petra" just released on: December 04, 2013, 01:15:58 PM
Now i understand your initial enthusiasm.
Glad to hear about you finding that free gem!
Lucky guy!   Grin

For some reason, standby or hibernate modes don't like my little ol' machine.
69  Main Area and Open Discussion / Non-Windows Software / Re: LINUX: Linux Mint 16 "Petra" just released on: December 04, 2013, 12:10:31 PM
Thanks for the reminders 40hz - think i might just keep LM as default.
Although i've seen a few complaints on LM blog about problems with Cinnamon 16, it has never been better as far as i can recall!
Everything is basically 100% faster than before. Yes!!
70  Main Area and Open Discussion / Non-Windows Software / Re: LINUX: Linux Mint 16 "Petra" just released on: December 04, 2013, 07:42:05 AM
Nice catch 40hz!  Thmbsup
First i've seen of that webpage and such a long well done presentation too!

Other than the first glitches expected on installation, standby mode failed at first try.



Now if i can figure out how to make Cinnamon boot second to Windows... boot config is read only and i always have a hard time to remember how to get into root mode. Not easy after 50!
71  Main Area and Open Discussion / Non-Windows Software / Re: LINUX: Linux Mint 16 "Petra" just released on: December 04, 2013, 05:55:36 AM
@ewemoa, not too obvious!   embarassed
Do hope to find the LXLE has it set up on the top right hand corner, like a transparent gadget...
BTW, Cinnamon CPU has been spiking.

'Funny' thing yesterday, CPU on Windows 7 was going tilt all day long, then when i decided to give Cimmanon another spin, it stopped!  huh
Can computers read your mind?
72  Main Area and Open Discussion / Non-Windows Software / Re: LINUX: Linux Mint 16 "Petra" just released on: December 03, 2013, 09:32:20 PM
Windows cpu was going bananas today (searchhost thingy) so i decided to give Elementary another try (for some reason tweak tool is no longer available) so i decided to go a bit deeper into LinuxMint Cinnamon - surprise! No more CPU issues.
Any tips on monitoring CPU on LM?

If i could only get that sufferin' suckatash CanonLide70 to work with LM!  Sad
That's okay. Dual boot isn't all that bad.  smiley
73  Main Area and Open Discussion / Non-Windows Software / Re: LINUX: Linux Mint 16 "Petra" just released on: December 01, 2013, 09:09:14 AM
Clem is doing an excellent job!  Thmbsup
Couldn't even load previous version on live DVD.

Do think i'll stick to Windows 7 though (peripheral issues but also shareware hard to do without now).

In all practicality... i found ElementaryOS to be the best so far with regards to peripheral compatibility issues.
Just don't like their forum and the fact that the top panel can't be set to autohide (annoying on laptops).

Don-keys and mon-keys! ha!  tongue

BTW, i think i'm giving up on Linux.
No matter which version I've tried, they all have some hick (especially with peripherals).
Windows 7 is just too hard to beat!

In case those links submitted become to technical for you, you may want to have a look at a small app for Windows called Clickto.
Hope you're on Windows!  Wink
