Running Mint 14 Cinnimon 64bit
Had serious wireless issues before replacing Mint 13 with 14. Works ok now, but signal not as strong as Win7 side by side.
I'm a touch typist, and use a mouse. Wireless mouse works fine, my problem is with the touchpad. My thumbs work the space bar and also randomly hit the touchpad with often unpredictable and always undesirable results.
I can't find a way to turn the damm thing off.
