That must have taken you twice as long as a 10 minute clean install!

Provided your drivers are OK, this is what I had to do in Daryna 4.0

After I had gone into 'Appearance' .. Visual effects (select Extra) I had to install Compiz Manager to get the "Advanced Desktop Effect Settings"

sudo aptitude install compizconfig-settings-manager

Hope this helps.

I would also go with civint's suggestion .. install to the already created linux partitions and overwrite Ubuntu. ie delete those partitions and install Daryna you will then get the dual-boot scenario with mint instead of Ubuntu.

Thanks Husse, weird setup though, because in 'edit' .. 'account settings' .. within Thunderbird, it states in 'junk settings' .. trust junk mail set by either of the 2 aforementioned filters. Doesn't show very clearly that it has its own inbuilt one! Evolution isn't an option either, that just doesn...

Thunderbird & SpamAssassin/SpamPal

Just a quick query here, I am using Thunderbird and there does not appear to be either of the above Spam filters installed.
Where do I go for one of them, as on checking with the Package Manager there isn't one there! (Using Daryna V 4.0 latest)
Thanks in advance.[/b]

Thanks Husse, there is also an enable/disable button that I now know of in XFCE 4 mintDesktop. Just had to be a switch somewhere, would have thought to making it more prominent though!

Also, the appearance 'visual effects' tab isn't in the 008 beta release, either.

"Goto XFCE 4 mintDesktop and click enable/disable button next to Compiz" Thanks for the information, merlwiz79, I thought there would be a switch somewhere. I do have other issues with the beta though, freezing regularly and a black line at base of screen and no taskbar. This does not clear on reboo...

Thanks Alpha-Geek, I am aware of that function.. the point I am trying to make (not too clearly it seems) is the ability of the system to recognise the selections made to the Visual Effects tab within the Appearance Prefs. They revert back to the previous selection after restart. Step by step: enter...

Unable to revert to any of the other available selections, ie.. None, Normal, Extra or Custom. The system wi...

Compiz failed

Bug?.. Not too sure, Compiz was working and I enabled advanced desktop effects after a fresh install, but, after rebooting all functions have stopped.
I cannot get any of the enhancements to work again.
My card is nVidia 8500gt
Suggestions please.
