    I don't know what Mint does (if it really doesn't have /etc, I'd be a little worried about how much they're patching their packages to do that), but both Debian and Ubuntu have an /etc folder. Look under '/etc' in a terminal, or press the 'file system' button in a file manager, then look for 'etc'.

    I have Mint 13 in a VM on my Windows box and for sure it has /etc

    Code:
    $ cat /etc/lsb-release 
    DISTRIB_ID=LinuxMint
    DISTRIB_RELEASE=13
    DISTRIB_CODENAME=maya
    DISTRIB_DESCRIPTION="Linux Mint 13 Maya"

    Having run debian, it has the /etc.
    Having run mint it too has /etc.
    The only changes to file system layout I've heard of is from red hat developers wanting to merge all the /bins, /sbins, and et al into the /usr directory.

    Hi, I used to use Mint 14.1 and abandoned it because I could not set the DNS IPs in its Network Manager GUI. Linux Mint has a backup hidden where it comes back to life and changes the locked settings. But I could use the desktop connection tool and set my new DNS there.

    Mint 14 runs fine for me. Perhaps you need to edit the DNS settings as follows:

    tgalati4@Mint14-Extensa ~ $ cat /etc/resolv.conf
    # Dynamic resolv.conf(5) file for glibc resolver(3) generated by resolvconf(8)
    # DO NOT EDIT THIS FILE BY HAND -- YOUR CHANGES WILL BE OVERWRITTEN
    nameserver 127.0.1.1

    # OpenDNS Fallback (configured by Linux Mint in /etc/resolvconf/resolv.conf.d/tail).
    nameserver 208.67.222.222
    nameserver 208.67.220.220
    tgalati4@Mint14-Extensa ~ $ cat /etc/resolvconf/resolv.conf.d/tail

    # OpenDNS Fallback (configured by Linux Mint in /etc/resolvconf/resolv.conf.d/tail).
    nameserver 208.67.222.222
    nameserver 208.67.220.220

    ----------------------
    Just put your desired DNS settings in the tail file. When you are out and about, you will have both the DNS servers provided by the hotspot and a fallback configuration.

    I don't use the Newwork Manager GUI. I'm sure there is a reason for this complicated resolv.conf arrangement and it is probably the use case that I have described.
