[24/07/2007] "Cassandra KDE Community Edition"
There is a known bug in this release: In the installer, the partitioner will ask you how you want to partition your drive. if you choose "Manual" the installer will crash. This is a bug in the KDE frontend of the Ubiquity installer. You can either use the "Guided" option or if you need to manually partition, use the Gnome frontend instead:
To solve this problem, open a terminal or a konsole and type:
sudo apt-get install ubiquity-frontend-gtksudo apt-get remove ubiquity-frontend-kde
The KDE Edition of Linux Mint is a Community project and it is maintained by Jamie "Boo" Birse.
This release is based on Bianca-KDE and compatible with all Feisty repositories. It comes with KDE 3.5.6 and a Linux kernel 2.6.20-15. Openoffice, Thunderbird and Sunbird replaced Koffice and Kontact. Beryl 0.2.1 is included with Beryl-Manager.

Thanks go to Clem for his assistance in getting me started, answering my dumb questions and fixing BETA bugs. I started out asking Clem about doing a Mint CE DVD and look where that got me. Thanks also go to the people who tested the BETA and put their findings up on the forums.
This release is not as minty as the main edition but it is mintier than Bianca KDE. More Mint applications will be ported to KDE for the Celena KDE edition. This desktop-ready KDE Mint has all the usual Minty goodness for the web and media applications. I have made the choice to make the Mint KDE CE edition more pro-desktop and to mirror the main edition closer with respect to the main applications. So what does this mean? Some applications have been swapped for their more mainstream counterparts.
Packages that got swapped:
The packages are very up to date with the exception of the kernel which is the original feisty fawn kernel 2.6.20-15. The kernel has not been updated due to development and compatibility reasons.
For those of you out there who only have a CD burner or only a CD-ROM there is the Cassandra miniKDE CE. Quite a few large packages were removed in order to fit onto a CD. After installation of miniKDE you are encouraged to install these packages from the web:
We hope you all like the new Cassandra Mint KDE CE. So now it is onwards and upwards to the next exciting adventure of Celena Mint KDE CE.
