Re: MATE on LMDE4

So I used LMDE on and off for years all the way back to LMDE 1. I just decided to give it a go again and see that there is no MATE option. So I googled LDME 4 MATE and found this thread. I was hoping for a crash course to install MATE as the primary GUI in LMDE. I realize I can open Synaptic and sea...

Is There A Way To Install A Compiz Plug-in

I want to add a plug-in to Compiz that seems to have been lost in time. It's the reflection plug-in aka reflex. Its super cool and gives transparent windows a still image in the background. Anyway, I know a lot of people aren't into desktop looks but I really enjoy it so i was wondering if there was...

I would like to change the dimming of the monitor to something like 2 or 5 mins. Is there a way to adjust the dimming delay? I know...

Compiz D-Bus plugin causes desktop GUI crash Mint Mate 20

When using Compiz, the DBus plugin instantly crashes the desktop. The mate panel disappears the window controls disappear and nothing works. When rebooted via power button, it reboots into the same issue. Fortunately Guake terminal works and I can launch CCSM and disable DBus plugin then I can reboo...

Re: Banshee is the best

I thinki you need to just find another player and hope like hell that banshee gets forked (though that's unlikely) rather than go through the bother of reverting your entire OS. There is no other player comparable. This is the issue... The only thing tht comes close is Plex, and then i would need s...

Re: Banshee is the best

Bottom line Sadly, Banshee is not integrated into many Linux distributions, mainly because of its Mono dependencies , which tend to create lots of problems nowadays. But if that is not an issue for you, go ahead and install the Banshee Media Player from your Linux distribution’s default software re...

Re: Banshee is the best

I suspect it was unmaintainable, the reason most FOSS projects go like this. A support foruim on a distro intended for beginners is probably not the best place to try to get devs for the project. I was hoping maybe the Mint devs would pick up the code and integrate it into the Mint OS making an alr...

Banshee is the best

Banshee is a media player (audio and video). It does podcasts, has a million add-ons, has a tag editor, music and video organizer, network capabilities and sooo much more. It is literally the single best media application ever to exist. I challenge anyone to prove me wrong. The problem is it seems t...

I have always used Mate and Screenlets and Desklets worked in the past. Well, I've tried just about every GUI over the years but Mate is my favourite by far. I would use Cinnamon but Compiz is an absolute MUST for me and unfortunately Compiz is not compatible with Cinnamon. Once you dedicate the tim...
