Linux Mint 15 KDE video review, screenshot tour

Filed under
Linux

Linux Mint 15 KDE has been released, and it's a great option for Linux Mint users who prefer the KDE desktop. The default version of Linux Mint 15 uses the Cinnamon desktop environment. It's a fine choice too, but it's not for everybody. KDE has much to offer, and many people prefer it to Cinnamon (or even to MATE).

Here's a quick list of new features and changes in Linux Mint 15 KDE:

KDE 4.10
MDM
Software Sources
Driver Manager
Software Manager
System Improvements
Artwork Improvements
Upstream Components

Here's a list of system requirements to be aware of before doing an install:

x86 processor (Linux Mint 64-bit requires a 64-bit processor. Linux Mint 32-bit works on both 32-bit and 64-bit processors).
1GB RAM
8 GB of disk space
Graphics card capable of 1024×768 resolution
DVD drive or USB port

Make Your Mark on the World With Linux

Linux and FOSS have already changed the world, and we're just at the beginning. This is a great time to learn to be a maker, in contrast to being a mere consumer. Clicking buttons on a smartphone is not being tech-savvy; hacking and building the phone is. Some people give Make Magazine the credit for launching the Maker Movement. Whether they launched it or just gave it a name, it is a real phenomenon, a natural evolution of do-it-yourselfers, inventors, and hackers in every generation. Remember Popular Mechanics, Popular Science, Hands-On (for Shopsmith projects), photography magazines, woodworking magazines, electronics...remember Heathkit? Remember when Radio Shack was still an electronics store? How about Edmund Scientific? That is still a wonderful playground of anatomical models, microscopes, telescopes, dinosaurs, prisms, lenses, chemistry sets, lasers, geology stuff, and tons more. All of these still exist, and have moved online like everything else. It's a feast of riches, plus we have all the cool new stuff that Make Magazine covers. This is absolutely the best time to be a curious tech adventurer. Read more

Season of KDE

This is my first SoK and hence I am equally excited and motivated to make a niche for myself with my work. The task allotted to me was to finish test.kubuntu.co.uk .

So I decided to make my own theme and thankfully my mentor , Jonathan Riddell was on the same page with me. Thus began the first lap , thinking and coming up with a new design. Read more
