System configuration

Postby donec on Thu Apr 17, 2008 4:44 pm

I have been using SimplyMEPIS 6.5 and have found it quite easy to configure using the GUI. I decided to try Linux Mint 4.0 Daryna and I am having problems finding how to do some things like booting without having to type in a password, change keyboards, themes or changing resolutions etc. What is used to make these configurations?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Keyboard layout: Search mintMenu for Keyboard.
Resolution: Search mintMenu for screen
Theme: Search mintMenu for Appearance.
This is if you are using GNOME, if you are using KDE, just launch kcontrol.

It's funny because I was looking for Kcontrol and could not find it but found System Settings and guess what it is Kcontrol. I opened it and then the icons showed up on the desktop.
