Hello I recently installed linux mint for the first time and i have to say that I really like it, it looks nice and works quite well on my somewhat older laptop.
Although I am not a complete newbie, having used ubuntu for quite a while, there is still one thing in linux mint which i cannot for the life of me figure out.
Which is the following: when I move my mouse over menu items a little black box with a description of the item i.e. "Home Folder. Open your personal Folder" or "Rhythmbox Music Player. Play and organize...."
Well this is annoying the hell out of me, and I have searched everywhere and tried everyhting but I just cannot find a way to turn it off (I know its somewhere but I just can't find it....)
for an instant i thought it worked, i have tried both options but still those tooltips are present.... but now they're present only in the mint menu bar. if i turn off application comments a list below the applications is removed, i actually get a little box (dark blue, blackish) with extra tips right next to my mouse.... and for example when i am in control panel i also get these 'tips'
