  7. [ubuntu] Re: One bad thing about the installation or 11.04

    As a workaround, you can open a text editor, type your custom mount point into that, then copy/paste it into the mount point field in the installer. This is assuming you are installing from the...

    It's not a Chromium problem, as it works just fine for me. It's also not likely a Natty problem, as it would also affect me running Mint 11.

    [SOLVED] Re: Ubuntu isn't as fast as people make it seem.

    Used to be Firefox, but it has become rather bloated and cantankerous over the last several releases. Now it's Chrome or Chromium.
