Edit "cassandra" menu name

Postby unreal223 on Fri Jun 15, 2007 5:07 pm

I love mint linux and think all of the customizations from ubuntu are awesome! Especially the special start menu thing but I have one question.. Can I edit that menu in some easy way to say start, menu or something like that instead of cassandra? I don't have anything against the name or anything but I might get a few strange looks from some people when they look at my computer. :P

Thanks for the help!

Right click the menu, select preferences. mintmenu will be highlighted, in the right pane the 3rd value down will be applet_text named cassandra. Right click that select edit key, you will see cassandra in value pane. You can change that to read whatever you want it to say.

Unreal223 i know what you mean, the same case was to me too, I Brought my laptop at school with Linux Mint and all my friends asked me: Is Cassandra the name of your new Girlfriend? Do you find the name so pretty that you must put it on your "windows"? <- see how noobs they are XD. I have had always answered that the name came as default so and this is not m$ product, this is something more better than it.

Change applet_icon_name to something else then distributor-logo (it's in the same menu).

My girlfriend's sister's name is Cassandra. :shock: That's why my menu button says Linux Mint 3.0.

You may need to logoff/logon or restart the Mint-menu applet. I'm not in the Gnome version at the moment so I can't say exactly about menu restart.
