I think to keep things simple (for now) I may just use that to partition, unless I feel especially enthusiastic and then I'll try from the terminal!thumb.gif

dual booting mint 14 and ubuntu 12.10 would be pointless. both are the same with different default looks, you might as well install mint and then install unity, or install ubuntu and then install cinnamon/ MATE

vbox drivers....that's probably what I was missing. Will have to try that again.

A quick question with Mint. I always use my middle mouse button when scrolling to the top of pages. Sadly, Mint does not register the middle button only the scroll functionality. Is there anyway I can use the middle button?

I did check the mouse settings and there is no setting. I am quite curious why mine wouldn't pick up the middle mouse button, but still scroll.

In both LMDE and Arch I had to go in and check Auto Scroll in Firefox to get it to work. I think I also had to enable a similar setting in Chromium as well. Check and see if it's checked.
