It doesn't appear to be different from Mint 13.  Grin

Re: Mint 16RC "released"

And this is bad how?  Roll eyes
It has the latest versions of everything included. Mate 1.6, Cinnamon 2.0 etc.
It also breaks severely awn  Cry Even with the new patched version I can't get 2 docks on screen.

Re: Mint 16RC "released"

I've been an awn fan for several years now. But it looks like I will have to try one of the others, don't like docky so trying cairo-dock but not too impressed at the mo, you need to have n separate config files if you want to add the same applet to multiple docks. Crazy

Re: Mint 16RC "released"

Another bug:
wine will not install on 64bit systems.  Angry
Crossover 12 works but had to install some additional libs, luckily they tell you what is needed  Wink

Re: Mint 16RC "released"

Wine issue fixed, Clem added an ia32-libs package to replace the one that Ubuntu had removed. I had issues caused by multiple failed fixes, but a wipe and re-install fixed that.
Running happily on my system at the moment. (Mate edition still don't like Cinnamon)

Re: Mint 16RC "released"

But who still runs 32 bit applications?
It was a gigantic kludge when Ubuntu added 64 bit libs AND 32 bit libs.

Most of the M$ apps are - so for wine I need them. Kindle for pc for example.
