Hello, I have a question to ask you

Postby Sunny Rabbiera on Sat Nov 17, 2007 6:57 pm

Alright here is my situation:
I and my husband are using Ubuntu linux as our distribution.
Now my husband has just switched over to linux after so many years under windows, currently he is dual booting Ubuntu Gutsy and windows XP and is getting used to the linux side of things.
To help his transition I gave him the linux mint menu as an alternative to the default desktop menu's offered by ubuntu.
I had to configure a few things of course (like taking the name "Daryna" out of it, directing the "software portal" button to the add/remove applet and et cetera)
but there is one thing that doesnt work:
the "quit" button
if he clicks it nothing happens, I know the default command to get it working is gnome-session-save --kill, but it doesnt seem to work)
I gave him the quit applet in his default panel but he wants a way to work it in the menu as well (he is just too used to the windows side of things so he needs the menu entry to work)
Now I would offer him Mint but it will just confuse him and shy him away from using linux (he has no clues about distros, the differences between them or anything"
I would also offer him the ubuntu system panel but it has not been developed in a while, except by you guys over here.
so there is my dilemma, I also have a topic like this over on the ubuntu forums but since I am using your menu I am also asking here too

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

I'm getting the same problem here with the Daryna install. The quit button works about half the time. It won't work after I reload the plugins either.

I added the "Quit" panel applet too until this issue is resolved with the mint menu.

so this might involve the daryna version then.
I might see if a older version works then, see what happens and see if its more stable.

I have no trouble with the quit button in Mint Celena. I'm staying with this version for a while.
Btw, why not Mint? If you know Ubuntu you will surely get along well in Mint.

Well the issue is not me, it is my husband who has no clue on how linux really works or what is the difference is between distro 1 of linux and distro 2.
Really if I gave him mint it will throw him off pretty bad.
