comment File permission issues with shared folders under Virtual Box (Ubuntu Guest, Windows Host)
the inability to maintain the same permissions as the host file system, is not that a problem? especially if the shared folder is tracked in git, then they are recognised as new changes in the vm? also, i would not want 755 on text files. diff --git a/a.txt b/a.txt old mode 100644 new mode 100755

comment unrecognized inateck hdd enclosure with linux Mint
i have a patriot usb3 pen drive; that is detected and works when connected to a usb2 port on my laptop; i thought originally if you use a usb3 device in a usb2 port it only affects the throughput but not the function itself

hi, what do you mean by "so that all those things just work (at the expense of not having always the latest version of an app)"

comment chrome ui issues with mint 17
thanks for your comments. i can also confirm the most of the qt packages have been installed because of vlc. i can understand a handful of qt libraries may not be a problem. but would you recommend installing kde applications on a gnome desktop environment; would it not cause conflicts with packages that came with gnome apps? by the way, do you have title bar problems with the chromium Version 34.0.1847.116 Built on Ubuntu 14.04, running on LinuxMint 17 aura (260972) ?
