Re: 1.2 First Impression

Can definitely autostart the installer in future yeah That would be a good move, I was hovering over the panel icons looking for tool tips. @DFergFLA If screen 1 autostarts then it's become a welcome screen that you can run the installer from. Would there be any sense in adding more links there, as...

Re: LiveISO desktop thoughts

Hi friend Ikey :) You have been on a long journey since LMDE and you look to have gathered a good crew on the way, I can't help but be impressed with Justin, he's like you very patient/tolerant hard working.

Re: New installer suggestion

I thought I might be trying to teach my granny how to suck eggs :lol: An unusual practice I've adopted is to use a swap file on my data partition rather than a swap partition. Anthony No...
