Hi I made the change from Ubuntu Jaunty to mint so im new to mint but not linux. I had been sticking with Ubuntu since Intrepid but i tried to upgrade to Karmic online. This is when things went sour. Karmic was a big dissapointment for me everything was running slow I could no longer change the wallpaper Compiz was acting really crappy. I was mad because Karmic was getting so much hype and all I wanted was my old desktop back and I went through the long hassle to upgrade.
So many other people where reporting great experiences with Karmic not me. I don't know what went wrong maybe some bad packages or something. So I decided to install mint to see what it looks like and skip all the searching for codecs this time around. So I put ubuntu 9.04 back on my computer downloaded the mint image burned it and installed mint Gloria on my computer. So far so good I like the look its way nicer then orange and brown( I had my theme set to look like OsX before I lost my desktop I couldn't take the default theme)
Ok this is where I would like some help I want the bottom pannel to be on the top Like in Ubuntu and have AWN running at the bottom of my screen. I have awn running but it is blocked by the bottom panel. I have created a top pannel and manged to tranfer the main menu there and place a volume control applet and calendar applet there. But the wireless,updatemanger,and power applets are all still on the bottom pannel and I don't see them in the add to panel menu. I need to get them on too the top bar before I deleate the bottom bar. Does anybody know how to do this? Im sure there is an easier way then what im doing.
