2. Install the latest default settings package.
a) Open a terminal and run the following commands:

Code: Select all
apt update
apt install mintfb-default-settings
rm -rf ~/.fluxbox
rm -rf ~/.idesktop
rm -rf ~/.xchat2


b) Log out and log in.

3. If your installation uses a language other than English as the default language, do the following:
a) Run
Code: Select all
apt update

b) Use System Tools > Language Support to install all the necessary packages for your language.

4. Change the contents of /usr/lib/cups/backend/cups-pdf as root to:

# Printer configuration file for CUPS v1.3.7
# Written by cupsd on 2008-05-03 23:40
<Printer Print_to_PDF>
Info Print to a PDF File
Location In your Documents folder
DeviceURI cups-pdf:/
State Idle
StateTime 1209854100
Accepting Yes
Shared Yes
JobSheets none none
QuotaPeriod 0
PageLimit 0
KLimit 0
OpPolicy default
ErrorPolicy retry-job
</Printer>


And then run this command from terminal:

Code: Select all
sudo aa-complain cupsd


5. The final version does not place a Desktop icon on the desktop by default. If you wish to have this icon run these commands as a normal user:

Code: Select all
mkdir ~/.idesktop/
cp /usr/lib/linuxmint/mintfb-default-settings/idesktop-installed-desk-icons/desktop.lnk ~/.idesktop/desktop.lnk


6. Bora Black is now the default Fluxbox style. MurrinaMintFB is still available.

7. XChat has been replaced with XChat-Gnome. You can keep XChat or replace it with XChat-Gnome by using Synaptic.
