Re: Ubuntu and windows, sitting in a tree...

Unless you are using LMDE, you are still using ubuntu if you run the regular mint (in modified form)...so quit criticizing...don't bite the hand that feeds you (as it were)... Disagree with this entirely, as others have said Ubuntu has done a good job in the past but Mint is what Ubuntu should have...

Re: Workspace scrolling?

Seriously? You may have specific issues but people all over the world are using Linux on a daily basis now, it's no longer just for geeks.

Re: Set number of workspaces in Cinnamon

This is not an issue at all :shock: There are at least 3 ways to do this: by using the hot corner and adding/deleting workspaces from there, by using dconf-editor in Cinnamon menu (find "number of workspaces") or directly on the CLI: (for example): gsettings set org.cinnamon number-worksp...

Re: Hard to discribe problem: Mint partially not working

This seems to be a well known issue with XFCE which I have encountered many times but the various fixes on the Internet just don't work. I've given up and switched to Cinnamon instead.

I think this would be faster than going to each workspace to see what windows are there.

If you do allow this please disable it by default, I think it's crazy to have different workspaces and then have Alt-Tab not respect that.

Re: Problem with Update Manager and Synaptic

I think this is an incorrect solution. Although after changing the file content, software can be installed and updates made, a large number of updates do not install -- the error is indicated as-- Not Found [IP: 91.189.92.167 80] From reviewing another thread I think the line should have been chang...

Re: Thanks for Sticking with GNOME 2 for Now

I understand KDE went through similar growing pains when it hit version 4, but I hear it is a decent desktop now. I hope GNOME is simply experiencing a similar phase, and that it will regain its flexability and functionality in future releases. Until then, I am very appreciative to the Linux Mint t...

Yes - but a mature interface is GOOD!! The desire to fix what isn't broken seems to be infecting the other distros, I'm glad Mint hasn't followed that trend.

All I need to do is keep updating XFCE and I'll have the same. Please let me know, and thanks for your responses. That's my...

I love the idea of using Debian for the non-mainstream editions, yes it's a bit more work but well worth it IMO.
