Long-time Linux user, very happy to see Mint works out of the box
"Had a problem with flickering but going to settings -> advanced and turning off hardware acceleration, then restarting, resolved it"
"1. In Synaptic, install jack, jackd, qsynth and qjackctl; 2. In Qsynth, click Setup -> Soundfonts -> Open and add the sf2 file in /usr/share/sounds/sf2 (In my install, it was TimGM6mb.sf2); Click 'Yes' to restart the engine; 3. Plug in your USB midi controller; 4. Open Qjackctl, click Connect; Select the ALSA tab, drag your midi controller to FluidSynth; Then I was able to play music"
"Will not start in Mint 17.1"
"Works great in lm 15, you just have to find a good example .conkyrc and save it to your home directory"
