Linux Mint was based off Ubuntu, which is based off Debian. Why are they going to base it off Debian when it sort of already is? Also, where can I find Linux Mint 11 with KDE? I don’t have anything against Gnome, it’s a wonderful and stable DE but my eyes simply like KDE better.

I just installed Linux Mint Debian Edition(LMDE). Unlike the Ubuntu based Mint, This one can’t automatically detect the graphics card and doesn’t show the notification in the tray, so I can’t use animations and Compiz effects.

I want to download Linux (Fedora or Debian). I downloaded Fedora and its currently in an .iso file. What do I do know? I’m completley new at this. And I need a list of what software to use and I want to spend {content}.00. And I’ll need a list of supplies that are needed. Most detailed gets best answer.

Recently installed Debian and completely new to linux. Installed Samba package and selected the shared folder. On my windows machine, I can see the linux box but not a folder or drive under it. The folder is shared under linux with SMB (also tried NFS). The Windows machine has TCP/IP, IPX/SPX and Netbios protocols. When I bring up the add network place window, I can see the box but no folder/drive. When I right click to add it, I get a login window but no login I type in works. Tried the root and user I set up with installation.

Need help with this but also could someone recommend a complete noob guide to linux? All the sites I’ve read are not easy for complete beginers.

I am running Windows Home, and I am trying to connect to a Debian Linux computer using winscp382 (A program that allows you to brows the files on another computer if you know the computers ip, username and password). I use it to connect to 2 other Debian Linus servers from the same Windows computer, and it conneccts just fine. but when I try to conecct it to the other Debian computer it gives me and error saying " Network error: Connection refused" I know that the Debian computer is conected to the same network as the Windows computer and it is conected to the internet, and I know I have the username password and ip all correct. And one more thing, the user name that I am using for the debian computer is an addministrative account.
