I know what you’re thinking.. third announcement about mintInstall in less than a week. Well, things go fast at the moment we’re getting good feedback and I’d like to finalize mintInstall so I can start working on something else (namely x64 and an upgrade tool).
Hopefully, this is the last mintInstall update until Linux Mint 6. Here are the improvements since mintInstall 5.1:
- Under KDE, kdesu is used instead of gksu
- The gksu/kdesu dialog now shows a simple “Please enter your password” message instead of a long and obscure command line (the message is localized of course).
- Known categories (including all categories from the Software Portal) are now localized.
If you missed the previous announcements about mintInstall 5 you can read about them here:
MintInstall 5.2 is available in Romeo. If you don’t have Romeo enabled you can get the debs from here:
Let us know what you think, report any bug you may find and have a lot of fun with this brand new mintInstall.
