I'm missing a mailing list for Mint, so I join a German forum. I
installed Mint Lisa - KDE 64-bit. KDE freeze after login and Xfce
doesn't show nm-applet. Changing the mouse cursor theme doesn't work.
Installation already was a PITA, since it forced me to install GRUB2. I
already used "GRUB legacy", fortunately it was easy to switch to "GRUB
legacy" for Mint, anyway it was unneeded work. Noveau was automatically
installed, a mega PITA.
OTOH the LED of the Wi-Fi USB stick is flashing, I didn't load a module
and I didn't installed firmware.
PolicyKit and ConsoleKit are not enough for Mint, they add AppArmor. IMO
it's like running three firewalls.
Until now I don't like Mint, btw. the mouse cursor theme even for Xfce
is annoying animated.
Haven't installed Ubuntu Studio meta packages until now. Perhaps I
should test what happens, when Ubuntu Studio themes are installed. Does
11.10 already include Xfce?
On Debian testing I had GNOME3 and Xfce4 installed and at the moment I'm
running Xfce4 only on Arch. There were and are not such issues as there
are for Mint.
