belovedmonster wrote:The best tip I can offer a Mint newbie is to make the most out of Gnome-Do (Windows key + Spacebar, then type something in). Make sure you have all the plugins installed by clicking on the little arrow in the top right and going into the preferences. Urm, at least I think you can do that with the gnome-do installed in Mint. I personally use Do that much that I added the gnome-do repo so I always have the latest version. Once you get used to it you will find yourself never using the Mint Menu again.
belovedmonster wrote:Yup, I noticed the firefox bookmark problem as well when I first installed Mint 5, that's why I installed the newest version from the gnome-do repos. With the newest version and all the plugins, trust me, its the best thing since sliced bread. The version that ships in Mint 5 is a bit clunky.

The version in Mint 5 is 0.4 I believe, the current version is 0.6. Makes all the difference

It should just be working without any farting around though. Maybe if you log out and log back in again that will fix it, it does most things.
