Re: Is Linux Mint ugly?

In fact, I'm asking for either my account be terminated or for a permanent ban. I'll not respond to such nonsense interpretations of what I've had to repeat now very clearly. I can deal with disagreement about the esthetics of the color. I cannot deal with high-road attempts at battling things that ...

Re: Is Linux Mint ugly?

Guys, I'm simply not going to tolerate this much longer. You can agree or disagree, but it's now about the attempt to misrepresent what I'm saying. Words to this effect: 1. TOTAL BS: "Why are you telling us this, tell the team". <---The team does look here and I've seen Clem post as well. ...

Re: Is Linux Mint ugly?

I don't get it. If you think Mint is ugly, why don't you open Themes and change what it looks like? What do we have 3 standard "window boarders", 35 standard "Icons", 35 standard "controls", 2 different "mouse pointers", and 35 different "Desktops?"...

Re: Is Linux Mint ugly?

Hello, tgm1024. My thought was that if Mint couldn't even figure out how to make a nice design, then how could they do any of the hard stuff right? [...] it doesn't matter in the least how hard anyone tried to establish it as a brand because IMO they are working against themselves and could do far ...

Re: Is Linux Mint ugly?

You guys need some training in logical fallacies. Particularly survivorship bias. The reason you're likely to be receiving information about people that aren't bothered by the green is because you're talking to people who are already using the product. You'll never even SEE the folks that don't give...

Re: Is Linux Mint ugly?

I passed on mint a couple times because of the barf color, but came back to it when I researched the "don't release too soon" methodology and how it was different from Ubuntu's. But that's because I am a software engineer since the 80's and know what to look for in the mind set of a compan...

Re: Is Linux Mint ugly?

i wish linux mint would change the color of that "low contrast green" which is the default color for mate. ^^^^That. The Mint team seems locked into this idea of keeping the mint herb color in itself as a brand of some kind. IMO, that's a terrible idea. Let's dispel these two tidbits of n...

Re: Keep your wallpapers Open Source!

If I spent a long time on a wallpaper design, the very last thing in the world I would do is release the components for it for free.

That seems ridiculous to me. Where's the advantage?

Re: Cheap Mint-compatible USB WiFi dongle?

I am sure Panda products are great, but the thing with WiFi devices is that the brand doesn't so much matter, it's the chipset the particular model uses. Correct. However, when I dug into the reviews online, the concern was entirely focused on TP-Link's changing of the chipsets (and hence drivers),...

Re: Cheap Mint-compatible USB WiFi dongle?

If you are surrounded by signals then you must be a clear channel, hence performance on Channel 8 is better than 1, 6 or 11 that every router uses by default. No, this is a common misunderstanding, and if you came to the channel 8 conclusion, you might have been mislead by temporary results (or bog...

Re: How are USB wifi adapters recognized? Are they "automatically" listed in the network icon list?

When you remove it, you click on the panel networks icon and select the other one. You should shut the USB one off before removing it. Sometimes if you plug the USB one back in you have to log out and back in to see it in the panel's networks icon. Well thus far, it's turned out just as you said wi...

Re: Cheap Mint-compatible USB WiFi dongle?

Panda Wireless Usb Adapter. That is THE brand that I keep reading about on this forum for years now, that will always work with any Linux OS, when Linux users have troubles with their Wifi connection. Even when there are no problems (yet) I would still be on the safe side and choose a Panda Wireles...

Re: Copiable error message would be nice

Indeed, it's atrocious lack of forethought that causes such things. And further, a strong violation of the law of least surprise. Yes Windows, with your configuration Windows that can't change size, I'm looking at you. All my error messages, and the error messages of the guys working for me, have be...

Re: Maybe an easy way to turn off cpu speed scaling

What could possibly be the point of the defensive posture here? First of all, this is a suggestion . I'm not looking for overall cpu performance tips, I'm looking for keeping the speed solid. There are legacy games that I'm setting up for my kids that assume that clock rate is static, or at least mo...

Maybe an easy way to turn off cpu speed scaling

There really should be a slamdunk turnkey way of telling linux to keep its mitts off of the cpu speed. Or at least have it default to what the BIOS indicates should happen with the Intel Speedstep settings (Disabled should be disabled and maintain CPU freq.) This reeks havoc with games otherwise. I ...
