Re: GDM multiuser switching issue

You are missing my point:
The login screen does not appear when any of these four ways to reach it is used.

I apologise if my original post was not clear enough.

GDM multiuser switching issue

My issue is simple, yet it is a blocker bug if I'm going to convert my parents into using Linux Mint. When a user has locked his or her screen, there is a dialogue window that appears when you wish to unlock the screen again. On this dialogue window there is a "Switch user" button that if ...

Background issue after fixing resolution with xrandr modes

Hi there lads and ladies. I had the issue after installing Linux Mint 9 that the system would not automaticly detect the resolutions available for my screens. So I ran over to https://wiki.ubuntu.com/X/Config/Resolution and added xrandr modlines to my GDM Default init script and my .xprofile. Now th...

Re: Wallpaper contest for Mint 9

I personally think that to date, the best mint background is the default in Linux Mint 7. I had to look a lot at it before I could decide upon that it is a photo of a hood of a car. Whether or not that is actually the case I am unsure. But you always end up looking a lot at the background, and it sh...

Incorrectness in the introduction to Linux Mint guide

I am currently reading trough the introduction to Linux Mint to basicly see if I can recommend this guide for new users of Linux Mint and if it explains the installation in a human way, which it does. Tough I have found one thing that is incorrect in the guide, and that is a small note about compute...

Re: Linux Mint 8 RC1 Bug Thread

One thing that I have thought for quite some time is that the Administration and Settings menus are too large. They could both be split into a third menu called Visual options or something like that. May be a good solution. May also be just cumbersome and unneeded. But the Admin and Settings menus a...

Re: Linux Mint 8 RC1 Bug Thread

Ditto joebobwilson The propitary drivers for my HD4850 did not download and install once Linux Mint was installed. I had to go over to ATi's website and download it from there. Tough the odd thing is that it did install on the LiveCD, tough I did not test if it actually worked since I had to restart...

Re: Linux Mint 8 RC1 Bug Thread

I got three papercuts immediatly on booting the LiveCD. 1. There is an obvious green square outside of the flashing Linux Mint logo on Boot. The logo was also too large but that might be solved once I install the distribution. 2. Was the standard background imeage. The green gradient in the lower le...

Re: Ubuntu-Backports repository as an apt-source by default

Well personally I do not think that the user are satisfied with the stability that is. There are obvious problems. Stability actually means that the repository will never be updated. And in the case of for example Kdenlive or Kompozer that means that the application will crash if you use even the si...

Ubuntu-Backports repository as an apt-source by default

So this is my idea for a blueprint: To use Ubuntu-Backports as a default repository. The reason why this should be implemented is that most users will want to update their Firefox browser from 3.0 to 3.5 when the new version is being released. Most users want the to use the newest release of Kdenliv...

Re: Linux in Schools

This is an interesting topic that I've been thinking of myself. But I'm more interested in the technical aspect if it.
Can anyone link more projects that are instituting Linux in schools and especially how they are doing it?

So when Gnome-Shell is officially released in Gnome2.30 or 2.32 Linux Mint will drop mintMenu in favour for Gnome-Shell?

Harddrive testing

I got a problem you see. I was playing around with different distros on my Portable Media Player. Namely a Cowon A3 with a 60GB harddrive. And so it came that I stupidly enough entered gparted and added a boot flag to the one partition on my PMP to see if it maybe would make it bootable on my old co...

I did not find any topic around the forum that brought this up so I tought I better do it. And as the headline reads it's about the FAQ which is very outdated. On the first note it talks about if Linux Mint is suitable for companies and it mentions the possible LTS of Bianca or Cassandra. Next lette...

Re: Monthly Stats - August 2009

Just a tought.
Shouldn't a sponsorship be 10USD or atleast 5USD.Because you are getting your companies logo up there.
All these 0.5USD sponsorships are kinda silly.
