Hi guys, I am running LM 17 Cinnamon as my primary OS, Ubuntu as secondary and Debian GNOME as my tertiary OS. This also means that my 500GB disk is partitioned accordingly, LM having the majority of the allocated space. The problem (not per se) is when I have to use the other two OS occasionally - ...

Re: Firewall?

Hi Crackington

I am using the preinstalled ''ufw'' firewall with the ''gufw'' interface. I find it quite easy to configure and reliable (so far). For more details, follow the link http://community.linuxmint.com/software/view/gufw.

Good luck!

Petra Cinnamon - Default fonts settings [solved]

Hi guys,

I am looking for the default fonts setting for Petra Cinnamon desktop. I had a look on LM related websites and could get them. Does anybody know how could I set them back to default? Unfortunately, there is no such an option on system settings under fonts.

Thanks a lot!
