Re: [trinity-users] Last Kubuntu Version That Came With KDE3?

Mint doesn't come with Trinity at all, but the 13.04 repos work fine
if you stick
with Mint 15 (which is based on 13.04). Use the Mate desktop version and leave
most of it installed.

List of versions: I'll get back to you later with the exact versions I
found with synaptic
in Mint 15. (I'm running Debian at the moment). Also, I'll post my sources.list.

Mint has the best media support I've yet seen. Annoying bugs are [1] it doesn't
complete shutdown or reboot automatically like any other modern distro (you have
to halt it with the shutdown button) and [2] some gtk widgets are
mis-rendered in
the Trinity DE (such as synaptic, but the programs all seem to work).

In general, the apps we know and love get broken in some versions and
fixed again
in others. Same with distros. That's why I try out and multi-boot lots
of them. I still
occasionally run Vector 6 "Kde Classic" with 3.5.10, but it's become
useless for
media now (even though it was great 18 months ago).
