Re: Move the password re-login box - a pointer perhaps?

I was hoping after over 300 reads that someone might tell me something. I realise my request is trivial to some. Or Perhaps I have not made it clear... When I lock my screen or it times out, the logon box appears in the middle of the screen. I would like to change the co-ordinates that position this...

I added Option "DynamicTwinView" "False" to the same file and same section (In my case I think it was not needed but What...

Felicia - firefox 3.05 keeps stretching to the whole screen thereby denying me access to my gnome menu bars (top and bottom) - is it something I have done? Can it be fixed or are the firefox dimensions un governable. I have only just re-installed Mint 6 and it also happened in the old setup. Is this...

Re: losing DNS settings in Daryna (re-edited post)

Tony, Thanks for trying to help - I have done what you suggested - the thing is that daryna does not wait for a reboot to remove my settings from resolv.conf it usually does it within the hour. I have looked for a crontab entry but no avail. Something is resetting my DNS list back to the default (re...
