The Perfect Desktop - Linux Mint 14 (Nadia)

This tutorial shows how you can set up a Linux Mint 14 (Nadia) desktop that is a full-fledged replacement for a Windows desktop, i.e. that has all the software that people need to do the things they do on their Windows desktops. The advantages are clear: you get a secure system without DRM restrictions that works even on old hardware, and the best thing is: all software comes free of charge.

    Hi there newbie question here. I am looking to install the Linux Mint on my little eepc which does not have a dvd drive to boot up. How can I get around this problem

  • wan Said:

    not a problem, if it have a usb port. download the image then put it on a usb flash drive using unetbootin. boot from usb & install.

    thanks, do you think that linuxmint is a good application for a netbook I have the 1015px eeepc. what i am looking for is a basic platform that I can customize to my own spec. obviously i know nothing about programming so it needs to be pretty intuitive. from what i can see this looks ok

  • wan Said:

    HI. I installed mint 14 with uNetBootin (with persist of 20MB). But it ask for user/password and none worked (mint, root, ubuntu, etc) :-/ Solution: On UnetBootin menu, press TAB key to edit boot. Remove "persist" parameter. It then start a deskTop and allow you to install (to hardDisk or *another* penDrive. Didnt tested this though). I hope it is useful for you!
