LMDE is currently tracking Squeeze. Right click on the mint icon and you should see edit menus where you may add or remove items.

uhm yeah it does that if there's too many. just use some less - there's probably a gconf calue or somehting setting the ammount of bookmarks you can have before they're being grouped.....

ah - not quite that simple

To list your Nautilus-only bookmarks, select "Show GTK bookmarks" under the places menu and de-select the ones above it.
For better service, wave a $50.oo.

i already have my bookmarks added. i meant how to show them in a list instead of grouped. only thing i dont like about LMDE as opposed to main. if u use the old 3 section menu ur places section is empty except for home and desktop

actually the thread on the ubuntuforums i just posted explains everything step by step. although i completely understand why you wouldn't want to that for such a little thing. Anyway - if you can live with five items as favorites they will not be grouped and you have what you want.

edit: personally I added my dropbox folder and removed "Pictures" and "templates" - simple as that

simple as that :)

btw: i just wanted to build gnome-panel just for fun to see if you'd run into any stepping-stoines and indeed there is one.
lmde doesn't like a handfull of dev packages at the moment (libglib2.0-dev etc) because they conflict with a package that was pulled in from ubuntu for font-rendering etc. and of course those packages just had to be needed to build gnome-panel :D

and don't play around with the ubuntu patches for font rendering that Clem added..before he added it, LMDE looked like sh-t as far as the font rendering goes...he did a marvelous job...i keep thinking i am in regular mint or ubuntu (my web pages look that good)...

when i saw the first iso back on september and did some surfing in Chrome with it, at that time i said..."forget it!" :lol:
when i saw the December iso i said...now THAT"S MORE LIKE IT :D
