Re: ADDING DropShadow?

Hey sosaudio1, did you manage to change the drop shadow radius and saturation? I did not find the right place in dconf-editor. Best Chris Never did...went digging into .css's of some of the themes as well and I didn't find a place to make a change, or add drop shadow, etc. To be clear here, I want ...

Re: ADDING DropShadow?

Awesome! Thanks man!!!! I probably won't go berzerk just yet. Most everything I would do I would go through advanced settings to add the different icons and such. On another note, do we know how to change the checkmarks in Mint? I have changed a lot but I still have the green background with the x i...

ADDING DropShadow?

Sooo in searching, a lot of people talk about removing dropshadow, I like the 3D effect of drop shadow. I like how a window on a mac looks like it is levitating on the desktop above other windows. It's sharp to me. That said, I know it can be done real well using compiz but I have issues with compiz...

Re: Is Mint 10 supposed to log me out after so many minutes.

I can confirm this. It started with the initial releases of LM10. ....So the issue lies in the screensaver system.... I started seeing a number of related posts with the same solution with the release of LM9/Isadora. Yeah I got a feeling it started with an update that occurred around that time. Wou...

Re: Is Mint 10 supposed to log me out after so many minutes.

Disabling the screen saver completely fixed the problem. I can confirm this. It started with the initial releases of LM10. It is the same with Ubuntu. Something with the screensaver causes the system to log-out. I can't even preview xscreensavers. I haven't checked to see if the same thing happens ...

Re: Can I boot into my windows drive while on my Linux Mint

HMMM... I had assumed you had Windows and Linux already installed. If it were me, I'd boot into Windows. Delete your Windows page file and then defrag it. Export your Windows partition to the vmdx and vmx with VMWare converter (to say, an external drive). Boot a Linux LiveCD (Mint?). Fire up gparte...

Re: Can I boot into my windows drive while on my Linux Mint

That being said, remember to back up your Windows partition.... Also since you're going to run in a VM anyway consider just exporting the partition to a vmdk and vmx (using vmware convert) if you have the disk space. You can always share to/from the real partition with the vm if needed. (I assume y...

Re: Can I boot into my windows drive while on my Linux Mint

Quemu will work (tho I didn't really recommend it). You'll need to read up on how to make the vmdk. But I'd suggest after making the vmdk, use VMWare Player. The performance is better. -H I am going to use the VMWare Player for sure. Qemu will do the vmdk in Linux environment right? Or....do you ha...

Re: Can I boot into my windows drive while on my Linux Mint

If you want to read your original partition, (in either VB or VMPlayer) you'll have to create the vmdk (using something like qemu). If you want to export your original machine description, then you'll have to use vmware's converter. (if it's Win7, you have to start with VirtualPC to get a vhd, then...
