Hi

I’m running Linux Mint on my 2007 mini and I can’t get google earth to work, It says unsupported graphics. Does anyone know a fix?

Ohhh got it. It was my only option if I wanted to use up to date browsers and email apps. The 2007 is limited to 10.7.5
I've got two of them (2007 model), still on 10.6.8.
Would like to try to convert one of them to linux, but read somewhere that it's very difficult with that model, no?

Hi

Both Fedora and Mint were very easy to install. Mint is the easiest and quickest. Go to the Linux Mint site and download the 32bit version and using disk utility burn it to a dvd then reboot the Mac with it. From there the install is a snap
