So I am trying out Linux Mint Debian Edition with XFCE - its awesome, but I have found a few niggles so far.
First up is WINE is impossible to install it seems.. what a ball ache..
so go here and use this old stable version .deb file
Second was the synaptic touchpad didnt allow double tap to click or scrolling on the edge..
sudo vim /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-synaptics.conf
and then add these lines
Option "TapButton1" "1"
Option "VertEdgeScroll" "1"
I shall add more solutions to issues I find over the next few weeks.
