Linux Mint Update Manager Query

Will all (or most) Level 3 updates eventually be Level 2 after someone tested on it? Or will it remain as Level 3 for a really long time (or forever)?

I was using GT630 video card and it was giving problem. So I took it out and used my integrated Sandy Bridge. However I got into Fallback mode. I read about changing the session settings at the login screen. Tried this and that and can't get it to the "normal" cinnamon. Earlier I was using...

Re: 1.6.7: Desktop icons are gone, missing setting in option

Thankfully I'm not alone. First time my desktop icons disappeared, I played around with my nemo and it reappeared. Now it just doesn't come back without ctrl+alt+backspace

I would prefer not to remove nautilus as furiusisomount needs it to work.

Re: Configuring Hardware takes forever

I installed Linux Mint 13 instead. I read somewhere that we can stay in the older versions if there is no problem. Upgrade to newer versions might cause other driver problems and whatnot. Nevertheless I have changed to a Samsung monitor and no more "input not supported" problem and I insta...

Re: Opera showing unreadable characters

Although you did not actually solve my problem, but I want to thank you for your concern. I've changed my blog to use Open Sans instead. I found out that Droid Sans rendering at 13px and below gives me problems. Enlarging the font to 14px and beyond solves the problem but makes my blog ugly. Font Ma...

Fresh install of Linux Mint 14 renders the font properly. After I installed font manager, and it became boxes. I uninstall font manager and sudo apt-get autoremove and not I can't revert. This is terrible!

Re: Opera showing unreadable characters

The problem is because that webpage uses droid sans and Opera is rendering it as boxes. Anyone know how to fix droid sans?

Opera showing unreadable characters

I've attached an image of my problem. When the webpage loads, I still can read those words. But after I scroll up and down it becomes box. I do not know if this was initially like that. But after I install some application it became like that. I tried removing them but still no hope. I know the shor...

Configuring Hardware takes forever

I've installed Linux Mint in vmware earlier and I really like it. So I've burnt the ISO into my 8GB flash drive and booted from my flash drive. Due to some issues with my monitor/video card (Acer/Sandy Bridge), I couldn't start Linux Mint normally. So I started Linux Mint (compatibility mode). Every...
