Linux Mint 15 Day 2

Linux Mint 15 This morning Linux Mint is working even better. Last night some of the graphics on the themes for the desktop tool bar were looking a bit too big, but that is all sorted now. The desktop toolbar seems to have a bit of a problem. It now won’t open Firefox from it and when I minimised Chrome it wouldn’t maximise again. No big deal as such because they open from the menu without a problem.I made the mistake of minimising this post and it won’t open again. I had saved the draft, fortunately. It will be resolved but it’s a silly glitch. I have checked all the settings and therein lies the display power of Linux 15. The customisations can be fine tuned well. For me it is important to have a good looking desktop.The menu can now open over the top of my screen and I can still see what is on my screen. The glass effects are excellent and my Toshiba laptop has never looked so good. Downloading the themes easily means I can get the general effect right and then can use the settings to really make my desktop function well. I have enabled the desklets (desktop widgets ) but the Accu weather one doesn’t want to pick up my location. I have also downloaded Scribus from the package installer because it is really nice desktop publishing software. This really is a good version of Linux Mint. The glitches just need to be ironed out. Initially, it didn’t pick up the wifi but considering with Linux I normally have to manually install the drivers from Terminal, all I had to do was turn the wifi off, turn it on and reboot and it picked up my wifi straight away. Olivia comes with so much already packaged and prepared for you. It is very easy to install and work with. I have also loaded Ubuntu Tweak because it is a great piece of software for easily managing Linux settings and daily routine. In one place it fixes everything and you can see your options. I can’t believe how nice this all looks and it is a very responsive OS. As a teacher I am pleased to know there is such  quality software for any school or family. That is education for everyone, no hold barred. Learning is not held up by affordability.
