Having an issue where LM 17 was installed and ran properly. However, after a few days it's started booting in Ubuntu 14.04 after the Grub. I no longer have the LM 17 splash where I can swap between users. I have to manually type in the user. Anyone solved this?

The Solve: LM17 http splash errored and defaulted to Ubuntu. Restarted went to the slash options to http then reselected the cloud splash. Thanks to LM community

I'm glad I made the switch from Ubuntu to Mint, mint is much smoother IMO, especially when unity and cinnamon are compared

Boa noite ,

A Linux Mint 17 Qiana com a interface XFCE é uma das melhores distribuições que usam a interface XFCE , eu pessoalmente tenho 2 que gosto , esta e a Voyager .

Este foi um pequeno vídeo mas que dá para perceber todo o poder desta versão com a interface XFCE a fluidez e a resposta super rápida as diversas solicitações é impressionante .

O Linux está cada vez melhor , mais estável , uma maior diversificação de aplicações nos mais diversos sectores e uma fiabilidade acima de qualquer suspeita .

Abraço a todos

I know this, but the simple, fast part is why I like XFCE. I use my keyboard more than the mouse so  XFCE with synapse works for me. :-)

I love what you have done with your desktop. it is clean,simple and elegant.

If I would have known installing Grub was so damn easy.....

I usually have a history of distros on a particular hard drive. There always comes a time when older ones arn't needed, so I reformat their partitions. It always ends up that one of these partitions have grub.

That happened today again, so was was going to re-install Cinnamon. After a brief search I found some simple instructions on how to reinstall Grub. It was amazingly simple.

I guess reinstalling Grub always seemed like it would be too difficult.

Mint tips and tricks  - 
 
When I loaded the latest LM I was left with the previous loader in GRUB. Later while reviewing Raspberry Pi Wiki I came across sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade. I used it and it cleared out the outdated booter.

Hey all. I just installed Mint Cinnamon and it is exactly the kind of workflow I am looking for. After a bit of customization to get it to look as I want, I am really happy with it. Well done developers!

Is there better quality hi-res version without so aggressive Mint logo?

Well, after my positive testimony, I still have tweaks and questions that need some work before I can coast for another couple of years.  LOL

Chromium:

1) It randomly crashes.  I disabled one extension that I thought might be the problem and that seemed to fix it.  But random downloads seem to still crash Chromium.  Any suggestions?

2) All downloads seem to get tagged with a crdownload ending.  I couldn't find where to fix that.

Onscreen keyboard:

I found Onboard, which seems to be a decent keyboard.  But is there anything better?  Hopefully with swiping like Android's Swype and Swiftkey?

I just wanted to share a Linux Mint success story.  Back in the heyday of the netbook, I bought an ASUS T101MT, which was the tablet PC version of a EEE PC.  It came with Win7 Home installed, when Home Premium was what was needed for the tablet PC features.  Upgrading was going to cost extra and there were horror stories about going the Win7 upgrade route on any device.  I don't recall where I got directed to Linux Mint and, in particular, Maya.  But that became my next step.

I've used Mandrake, Mandriva, and SUSE before. So, linux seemed like a good alternative.  I wanted something that wasn't going to make me rebuild my configuration every 6 months to a year.  Maya, being LTS, seemed like a winner.  As it turned out, I didn't gain much by switching, but I didn't lose anything, either.  And I had a stable OS.

When I joined this community, people were already talking about the potential of Qiana.  Some recommendations, a few nudges, and I bit the bullet.  Thanks to some community hand holding, I got past some of my own missteps.  I gained the tablet PC features that M$ and ASUS should have included in the first place.  There are things I still need to get right, but it's a great ride.  So, thanks, LM community.
