Linux Mint 14 KDE RC e Linux Mint 14 Xfce RC rilasciate


AAA Attenzione, post aggiornato rispetto alla prima pubblicazione :)

A distanza di qualche settimana dal rilascio della main edition di Linux Mint 14 "Nadia" ecco giungere le release candidate delle sue derivate con Xfce e con KDE. Clem ha infatti approvato le due ISO e le ha marchiate come RC quindi pronte per una prima diffusione.
Di seguito i link con le novità

Linux Mint 14 KDE

Novità in Linux Mint 14 KDE


Ricordo a tutti che sono ancora nella fase RC, quindi potreste incontrare bug di varia natura sia nell'installazione che nell'utilizzo.

In particolare vengono segnalati i seguenti bug su Linux Mint 14 Xfce RC

PAE required for 32-bit ISOs

The 32-bit ISOs of Linux Mint 14 use a PAE kernel. If your processor is not compatible with PAE please use Linux Mint 13 Maya LTS instead. Linux Mint 13 is supported until 2017.

AMD Radeon HD 2xxx-4xxx series card

The ATI drivers for these cards are now available in a separate branch called legacy series. Unfortunately these legacy drivers (version 12.6) have not been updated to work with Xorg 1.13.
If you own one of these cards you can either:

Additional drivers

To install additional drivers, please run the "Software Sources" tool from "Menu->Preferences->Software Sources" and click on the "Additional Drivers" tab. The tool used in previous versions of Linux Mint (Jockey) was discontinued upstream in Ubuntu.

"Extract Here" in Thunar

A bug in file-roller prevents the "Extract-Here" feature of Thunar from working properly. The bug was fixed upstream and the issue will be solved in the stable release.
For more information about this bug: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/file-roller/+bug/978789

Mouse Integration in Virtualbox

In Virtualbox, if your mouse cursor jumps unexpectedly click on "Machine->Disable Mouse Integration".

Moonlight

Moonlight was removed from Linux Mint because of a bug that made Firefox crash. The bug was fixed upstream and you can install the Moonlight plugin from the project's website.

Other issues

Linux Mint 14 is based on Ubuntu 12.10. Make sure to read the Ubuntu release notes.

Mint4win

When installing Linux Mint with mint4win, choose loop0 for both the target partition and the grub destination.

CD images

Because of the size of the content, and the fact that a vast majority of systems nowadays can either boot from DVDs or from USB, Linux Mint no longer provides images which fit in 700MB CDs. It is however possible and easy to to modify ISO images. By removing packages such as Java, Mono, LibreOffice, Gimp..etc.. Linux Mint ISOs can be made to fit within 700MB. For instructions on how to remaster the Linux Mint ISOs, please read the following tutorial: http://community.linuxmint.com/tutorial/view/918

Local repository and GnomePPP

GnomePPP is not installed by default but it is present within the default installation of Linux Mint. Your Linux Mint system comes with a local repository which is disabled by default. You can enable it by removing the comment sign "#" in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/local-repository.list and refreshing your APT cache. This repository contains GnomePPP as well as a collection of drivers.

KPPP

KPPP doesn't launch from the menu. To launch it, use the command line. This bug will be fixed in the stable release.

Ubiquity present post-install

The Ubiquity packages are still present after the installation. They can be safely removed from the system. This bug will be fixed in the stable release.

Mouse Integration in Virtualbox

In Virtualbox, if your mouse cursor jumps unexpectedly click on "Machine->Disable Mouse Integration".

Moonlight was removed from Linux Mint because of a bug that made Firefox crash. The bug was fixed upstream and you can install the Moonlight plugin from the project's website.

  1. Onestamente, mentre condivido la Mint con la sua Shell dato che offre una alternativa, di queste con KDE e XFCE, non capisco cosa abbiano di più rispetto a Xubuntu e Kubuntu (quest'ultima davvero ottima per KDE).

    Che ne pensate?

  2. Io la penso esattamente come te, non cambia praticamente nulla, eccetto qualche programma di Mint!@Anonimo

  3. Condivido il pensiero di entrambi, alla fine la main con Cinnamon ha ora un perché, queste due invece sono dei cloni di Xubuntu e Kubuntu con i codec preinstallati
