Re: My MBP dual monitor does not work

Try using arandr (graphical version of xrandr) and perhaps using customization specific to your card. For example, if you are using the fglrx driver, use the AMD Catalyst Control Center.

Re: Mint-X-Clours Cinnamon/MATE/XFCE/LXDE theme

Thank you for this, it almost matches the blue of my azure desktop (backgrounds - wallpaper - advanced options) , that is, your blue color is just a smidge away from azure towards teal. I guess if I studied the style sheets long enough I could determine what setting to tweak. Is there a format desc...

Re: change Mint-X gtk colors

Nothing too exciting. I just reinstalled because I got sick of Ubuntu and the xorg-edgers ppa kernel locking up my system. Also I wanted to use KDE but 4.10 broke. So back to Cinnamint it is!

Re: questions about the boot splash

The boot splash utility is called plymouth. Here is a short introduction to creating plymouth themes. It's possible to have quite an elaborate boot splash - openSUSE 12 comes to mind. I don't think a longer boot splash would get the desktop into a more ready state. Usually the desktop only loads aft...

Re: All Desktop Screenshots - February 2013

Here's a typical desktop scene (Linux Mint 14 "Nadia" Cinnamon flavour). I felt cramped with only one panel so I went to classic mode, and I don't think I'll be switching back. There's so much room for applets! My Cinnamon theme is Cinnamint Blue (a mod I made of Cinnamint), GTK theme is Mint-X-Blue...

Re: Mint-X-Blue Cinnamon/MATE/XFCE/LXDE theme

I've updated the theme, and included a way to have applications launched using sudo have red controls. Here's an example: http://i.imgur.com/s8lkHRh.png In the foreground with red controls is the MDM configuration tool (as root). In the background is Cinnamon Settings (as user) with blue controls.

Mint-X-Clours Cinnamon/MATE/XFCE/LXDE theme

This is the default green theme that has been modified to be blue instead of green. Looks great with Faenza Cupertino icons! Download here To install, extract archive to ~/.themes/ (create the directory if it doesn't exist). In Cinnamon, go to Cinnamon Settings -> Themes -> GTK Theme -> Select Mint-...
