    Narad, I agree with Serry that screen shots with printed instructions are much better than text only, and better than a video.

    But most of your instructions are simply repeating what I can already see on my computer screen if I run the install program. What I need is guidance. Specifically…

    The hardest and probably most important part to explain, is for cases where Windows or another OS is already installed. I want to have both Windows and Mint, and be able to choose at bootup. And I want my personal files to be accessible from both operating systems. In your step 6, no other OS is detected, so of course you show no instructions for that situation. When “Something Else” is selected instead of the choice you made, the next screen is pretty intimidating, and I’m lost.

    So I need a lot more instruction for how to set up the partitions and how big to make each one.

    How do we encrypt OS without giving up windows installation ??

  4. Serry says:

    Many thanks, this is most useful! Glad to see ahead of time, that one needs to choose whether to use encryption, whether to use LVM (and what it is). I like this format (a web-page with screen-shots very much better than a video or a text-only description.

    I think this release is the best so far. I used to use Ubuntu exclusively but I really wasn’t a big fan of Unity or Compiz so I switched after Ubuntu 11.10 and have used Mint ever since.

    If you have trouble configuring the weather applet, use Gconf to configure your location and settings. Till the applet’s config program gets fixed that offers a nice clean way to modify settings no harder then using the registry editor for windows with less clutter to go through.
