Re: No updates?

I am very happy for the maintainers to make considered decisions about delaying updates.
Stability is important and as such if the upstream is broken or the volunteers in Mint are too busy to check them, then I can wait.
If you want bleeding edge Debian, go get it..

Re: LMDE BREAKAGES - tracking Testing - read here first-10/

Thanks. Changing to ftp.debian.org did fix it.
Now I know the nature of the problem I'll just relax when such things happen.
I was just concerned since I was setting up the machine again after a smxi/sgfxi distaster

Buttons on left

Ok, I guess you all don't like buttons on the left, but I am a Mac and Ubuntu Lucid user as well and I want to move them from the right to left. I have tried doing this by changing the button layout order in metacity [ http://lifehacker.com/354925/arrange-the-window-buttons-in-gnome but this doesn't...

Re: Install Gnome alongside XFCE

In the end I reorganised all the panels in GNOME by hand, removing the top one totally, and adding the Mint Menu to the bottom one.

Not exactly solved tho' so still intererested in the correct way to do it.

My apps now work since they seem to expect gnome and nautilus to operate fully.. but..

So.. how do I get a proper Mint desktop available at login?

Install Gnome alongside XFCE

Some apps I like seem to dislike Thunar and XFCE so I'd like to install the full Mint Gnome desktop and login to that instead, but I can't see the point of reinstalling from scratch. Is there a unified meta package I can install in my Linux Mint 9 XFCE synaptic that will install Gnome so I can selec...
