    Re: should i do it (install linux mint)

    If you was to ask this on the Linux Mint forum, the answer would be, Yes. But you are asking this on a Ubuntu forum and it looks like I am the first to get a reply in. My answer is, No. Install Ubuntu!

    The truth is, it is your choice. You are free to install whatever Linux distribution you like. I have never installed Linux Mint so I do not know if it is possible to install without an internet connection. But we can do it with Ubuntu and the flavours of Ubuntu. We are asked to tick a box confirming that we want the OS updated as part of the install process. Leave that blank and Ubuntu should install without an internet connection.

    Regards.

    There really is no point to installing LM KDE. Might as well be Kubuntu since Mint and Ubuntu share the same core. You should only install Mint if you want the Cinnamon or Mate desktop. Any other desktop you might as well use Ubuntu as Ubuntu will have the same packages as Mint for every other desktop except Cinnamon and Mate. Ubuntu doe have Cinnamon in it's repos btw, but it's not configured the same as on Mint.

    Depends. For me sound behaved wrong on Mint 15 XFCE but behaves and works properly with Lubuntu 13.04. That's why I say try out live cd's, usb sticks, whatever first and test some things.
