Hello everyone. First of all, I'd like to say that I really like Linux Mint. I've tried both the main and KDE editions. I thought I'd give GNOME a try for a while because I like the changes that were done to it. Having said that, there are some differences in the two desktop environments that I haven't quite figured out. The most important one is how to set up the default language for separate users. I have the default keyboards set up, but I would like to change my wife's default language to Turkish somehow. I can do it by changing the language on the GDM login screen, but then I have to switch back to English when I log in. Is there any way to keep GDM set to English, but have her GNOME go to Turkish upon login?
The other things I'm wondering about are relatively minor differences between the KDE and main editions. First of all, I really liked the Compiz options menu under KDE, but I don't see anything like that under GNOME. All the options you have under Appearance -> Visual Effects are None, Typical, and Extra. It would be neat to have all the different config options that you get with the KDE CE. I think I should be able to install a package to get that up and running, but I don't know which one to look for...
One other thing about Compiz under GNOME that is different is that when I have the Extra options selected and attempt to run Quake 4, it forces my game in to windowed mode and makes it unplayable forcing me to Ctrl+Alt+Backspace the X session. When the settings are on typical, everything runs perfectly. It didn't do this under KDE, so I have no idea where to begin really.
Ok, last thing. Really. Is there any way to add the Add or Remove Programs package manager to the main edition? I installed Adept Manager, but I just love how the Add or Remove Programs manager organizes things so efficiently. If you can add it, what would be the command to run it in case I have to use sudo to get it going? Like I said, other than these fairly minor issues, I'm really pleased with what you all have done with GNOME under Linux Mint. It finally feels right to me.
P.S. -- My brother was wondering if there would be any upgrade option for the next versions of Mint so that we don't have to keep formatting every time a new release comes out.
