    Linux Mint 15 'Olivia' Released

    Website / Download / What's New / Release Notes

    Linux Mint 15 is the most ambitious release since the start of the project. MATE 1.6 is greatly improved and Cinnamon 1.8 offers a ton of new features, including a screensaver and a unified control center. The login screen can now be themed in HTML5 and two new tools, “Software Sources” and “Driver Manager”, make their first appearance in Linux Mint.

    driver manager looks like its for proprietary drivers only, not ones that come with the kernel

    I've just done an in place upgrade and it appears to have gone without issue, even though I use Kubuntu backports (for the latest version of KDE 4), steam, playdeb, and google chrome repos.

    inplace upgrade worked reasonably well for me, few driver issues but nothing that wasn't easily fixed

    eth0 doesn't seem to work, but i haven't put a lot of time into as i normally use wlan0

    gets a connection light, just the operating system never see or reports the link is up.. weird.

    might look into it next time i need eth0

    has the network config been changed as in the later versions of centos for example you have to manually set the LAN to come up on boot.

    Nautilus stopped auto-starting after I upgraded. Pretty blank desktop until I figured that out.

    Thanks for the delayed response! Restarting networking or the whole machine didn't help, I had to check a box somewhere to make nautilus auto-start. I hate to say it, but windoze updates don't tend to stop the desktop starting up properly..!

    What is it like for Steam? Quite simple and smooth gameplay out the box?
