customize nemo ?

Hi, I'm running Mint 14 and was wondering if there is a way to customize the background colors in Nemo. For example, to change the black in the sidebar?

Thanks!

Re: Is there anyway to install Cinnamon from the MATE Live D

As the title suggests, I'm looking for a way to install Cinnamon from a MATE Live boot and vice-versa. I'm currently doing a lot of back and forth and trying to avoid unnecessary writes as all the machines I'm installing to use flash SSD's and I'm also trying to spare my aging USB flash drives. Tha...

More than likely. What media are the files on? Should be a simple matter of copy/paste to the desired directories.

Re: Linux Mint 14 "Nadia" RC released!

As a Linux novice, I'm not sure whether to go with Mate, Cinnamon, or KDE. I think XFCE is for lightweight computers so I steer clear of that. One of the great things about Linux is the plethora of desktops to choose from. Try them all, if you wish, and pick the one you prefer, or keep as many as y...

Re: Need a better graphics card

I just replaced an Nvidia 6200LE with an EVGA GT430 that I'm quite happy with. It was about $70 new. Didn't require an upgraded power supply or anything like that.

Re: Cannot install Nvidia driver

Well, glad you got it sorted although I don't really understand what went on. I just did an install of Mint 13 KDE and had problems with the additional drivers app, so I just used Synaptic to install nvidia-current and nvidia settings.
