2 questins after 6 to 7 upgrade...

Postby Sid32 on Sun May 31, 2009 11:20 am

Everything went smoothly, expect that MintMenu thinks I'm running the KDE Community Edition.

Hoover on Menu "Linux Mint 7 Gloria - KDE Community Edition", no the GNOME Community Edition. Any ideas on how to fix?

and I don't seem to be getting the Jaunty style pop ups.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers,

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

I think Ubuntu broke the new pop up messages, they said something about doing more work on that for the next release. Have you tried right clicking on the menu and clicking on "Reload Plugins"? The only other thing I can think of would be to completely remove and reinstall the menu, that might fix things up.

Hi sid32,

I had this same problem when I updated.

open synaptic, then in the search type mint.

look down the list, is mint-info-gloria-kde installed?

if so mark it for removal then mark mint-info-main for installation.

this fixed it for me. hope it helps :D

as far as the pop ups, exploder is probably right there.......


Cheers,
