Linux Mint 15 Interview – HTML5, Arch and the MintBox

Filed under
Linux

In our interview with Clement Lefebvre and the Mint dev team for this months issue, we covered more than could fit into the confines of our magazine. We talked about the most important part there, the release of Cinnamon 2.0 in the next Mint, however there was more that we talked about.

Linux User & Developer 128 is in stores now, and also contains 14 pages devoted to the Raspberry Pi, and a tutorial on installing a Linux distro to your Android phone. Grab it online at the Imagine Shop.

Here’s the rest of the interview, with some interesting tidbits about the new MDM themes, the MintBox and more.

Short of switching off mobile data (which defeats the purpose of a smartphone), look under the options in the Data Usage part of the settings. Here you’ll find my wallet’s favourite Android setting of ‘restrict background data’. Now when using cellular data, apps will only pull down data when they are in the foreground and you can see them doing so.
