MeX Linux is based on Linux Mint. (I.e. Linux Mint 16 - codenamed "Petra", released 20131130 and on Ubuntu 13.10 - codenamed "Saucy Salamander", released 20131017).

NEWS 140301
All packages in MeX Linux have been upgraded to the latest version by 140301. Cairo-Dock has been added. The most important change is that I have replaced the install program Ubiquity with MeX Installer. The installation to hard drive is now so simple that a 10 year old child can...

Mint 16 Best 64 bit KDE Desktop for G945/i915

Posted 02-28-2014 at 09:11 AM by rainbowsally
Updated 04-19-2014 at 11:33 AM by rainbowsally (abandon ship!)

Update: I'm reverting to a 32-bit system. I may install some 64-bit libs but trying to get everything working that I need in a 64-bit system is not worth the time.

I'll leave this post in case it's of any help to anyone, but it turns out that THE solution to the graphics speed provblem here may have only worked by chance. Meanwhile, my 64 bit system still has all the graphical effects working, but everything else slowed down and several apps ported from non-mint distros no longer...

This article shows how to create an Arch Linux package
1) when you have got pre-compiled binary files available
or
2) have debian/fedora .deb/.rpm packages available and you have extracted them and got usr/, etc/, etc. directories with installable files in them. Hence want to convert deb/rpm packages into Arch Linux packages.

~/foobar/src
Also create ~/foobar/PKGBUILD.

NEWS 140227
The DebEX Barebone ISO is now a ISO-hybrid, which means that it can very easily be transferred to a USB pen drive. You can then even run DebEX Barebone from the USB stick and save all your system changes on the stick. I.e. you will enjoy persistence! Read this INSTRUCTION. NetworkManager has been removed. It doesn’t go together with Wicd when it comes to configuring wireless networks. I’ve added the applications GParted (partition editor), AbiWord, Icedove (Thunderbird) and AlsaPlayer....

Exton|OS is based on upcoming Ubuntu 14.04 64 bit (to be released in a stable version in April 2014) and Debian Jessie. Exton|OS’s ISO file a ISO-hybrid, which means that it can very easily be transferred (copied) to an USB pen drive. You can then even run Exton|OS from the USB stick and save all your system changes on the stick. I.e. you will enjoy persistence! I’ve found two scripts which make the installation to USB very simple. The scripts are quite ingenious. My tests show that they work flawlessly...
