This is great!

I also deactivated the bottom panel and am much happier with just the top panel. If they fix the icons so they are not spread out and make them more even in size, I'd say Mint 12 would just about be perfect

Since it doesn't yet support Lisa, I first tried it with unlisted distro, new syslinux. That didn't work, so I tried it with old syslinux. The drive is bootable now. Booting shows an LM12 screen that says 'booting in 10-9-8" etc. After that, screen just turns off. No display at all. I hear the Mint starting sound, so the RC is definitely loading, just that the display is off. Any ideas? I'm itching to try LM12.
Should I try some other way of making a bootable drive? Could it be a gfx driver issue? I'm running an AMD A8 3510MX with an additional Radeon 6750M.

Can you tell me how you added your shortcuts on MGSE desktop? I have one .sh file which I'd like to run without prompting me if I want to run it in a terminal or not. I copied the said .sh file to my Desktop directory, also tried with the symlink, but both times it's prompting me and I don't want that. What I am looking for is something similar to "Application Launcher" from Gnome2.
Another question I have is how to add the link to the .sh file to the MGSE dock? Maybe I have to add it to one of the menus as that's the only way I can see to add things to dock, but I can't seem to be able to do that either.

Creating shortcuts is easier there. It seems that "Show desktop" applet is not there and it's also hard to add anything to the panel.

Could you actually change the appearance theme and does the look change?
