Re: list of packages that can be uninstalled

The most newbie-possible thing to do would probably be a) freeze (not sure what the right term is) all the current programmes you dont want to use in synaptic and b) remove them all from the menu. For all intents and purposes you'd never know the other programmes even exist as you wouldn't see them ...

Re: Conky Manager - Unable To Install

Now you've installed Conky from the terminal you need to: 1. install realpath (you might find it in the repos, if not perhaps try link here: http://launchpadlibrarian.net/340091846/realpath_8.26-3ubuntu4_all.deb) 2. install conky manager (you'll want the top link: https://github.com/teejee2008/conky...

Re: Some suggestions for Linux Mint, and Linux Mint blog

I can help you with the first point.

When you log-in, look along to the far left side of the Linux Mint banner. You'll see a 'Quick links' tab next to FAQ. Click here then click 'Your posts'.

Took me ages to find that too :lol:

Re: Neptune 6 - worth checking out

Just for the record, I'm going to try running Neptune 6 as my main OS.

Re: Neptune 6 - worth checking out

I've used Q4OS in the past and was pleased with it. Have Debian with KDE currently installed on one of my ThinkPads and it's working just fine. What does Neptune offer that plain ol' Debian doesn't?

Re: Neptune 6 - worth checking out

If you like KDE, try KDE neon. I have actually. In fact, it was via Neon that I first discovered just how easy it was to configure the KDE DE the way I like it in Xfce (very minimal, all hidden system tray icons, icon-only task bar for switching between open apps etc.). This also led me to discover...

Neptune was buggy last time I tried it. Q4OS seems a good Debian-based choice for KDE.
I've not encountered any bugs as of yet. I'll check out Q4OS though. Thanks for the tip.

Neptune 6 - worth checking out

A KDE distro, based on Debian 10, with up-to-date apps, kernels and drivers?

Any of you guys checked it out?

I've installed it as my back-up and not only does it visually score 10/10 - it's silky smooth. The Excalibur menu as default is also a real USP.

Good, clear clean crisp fonts with excellent anti-aliasing. Icons the same way, clear, crisp, well defined. Flat is ok, but boring, I like skewmorphic icons to some extent. But my number one priortity is clean, clear, crisp looking. Thank you, now I have a much clearer idea of what you mean. I had ...

[solved] Tango Icons do not change all folders

Every other icon set I choose changes all the icons and folders. But I really want to use Tango. Why does it not change all the folders? Is there something I can do to rectify this?

Re: Whats different about debian mint?

When you start using it Debian based distros are far easier to maintain and use than anything based on Ubuntu. If you don't believe that have a look at MX Linux or Antix.

Just installed it on my second machine over MX Linux 18.3 after it refused to boot after installing nvidia drivers.

No such problem with Mint!
