Well, I upgraded to Elyssa using the Live CD the other day (and was it ever a hairy process!), and have been pleasantly surprised by little differences from Daryna, that I notice here and there. And, at other times, less pleasantly surprised. Which is why I've created this thread: because there are some little things I'd like to fix.
1). For some peculiar reason, the name on my MintMenu is still Daryna, yet I most certainly am running Elyssa. And so I'd like to change that. How is that done?
2). I've noticed that the little icons next to the automatically-created folders in my home directory are larger than they were in Daryna. A little too large, in my opinion. Is there some way to shrink them back?
3). This one's a bigger problem, actually. Totem will no longer properly play videos taken with my digital camera! It used to work fine (well, almost fine - jammed up from time to time), and I used it a lot, since I'm working on a little movie project. I use Cinelerra for editing, and since the sound format my camera uses (linear PCM) is not fully compatible with Cinelerra (it produced loud static), I had converted a bunch of my videos using mencoder, to use MPEG layer 2/3. Note that both formats played fine in Totem, under Daryna. But now, when I play my video clips with Totem, I get a black screen, with just the sound - and the sound of my unconverted clips is really fuzzy, just like in Cinelerra! And, which is also odd, MPlayer also gives a black screen, but with proper sound in both formats. My videos are ordinary AVI files, with Motion JPEG (ffmpeg) video and linear PCM audio, as I mentioned before. What's wrong here?
4). Also, I had installed VLC a while back, and then uninstalled it; but it still shows as an option in the list of video players, when I right-click on a clip in Nautilus. How do I get rid of that?
5). There were a couple other things, too, but I forget them now. If you've got any idea on how to fix my other four issues, though, it would be quite nice. Thanks for any help!
