Re: Dual boot computer - no grub menu

I know next to nothing about UEFI mode. The only reason I have an EFI partition is that the installer gave me a warning that my system will not boot without it, so I added it :cry:

It seems that I'll have to reinstall linux.

Dual boot computer - no grub menu

I installed LM 19.3 along side an old installation of Windows 7 on a HP desktop computer. The picture below shows the partition layout. when I start the computer, I don't get a grub menu to choose OS, and I automatically go to Linux Mint. So I have no way to go into windows. I tried to run boot-repa...

The boot process seems to have been fine, and I got to the login screen (the default LightDM). I typed my password and pressed enter. Screen became dark for a second, but then I found m...

Re: Add Grey Border around desktop icons text?

I like the background too. The settings for this is in the file .gtkrc-2.0 in your home folder. here is my file for example: include ".gtkrc-white" style "xfdesktop-icon-view" { XfdesktopIconView::label-alpha = 50 font_name="Sans" base[NORMAL] = "#000000" base[SELECTED] = "#A7CC5C" base[ACTIVE] = "#...

I have been reading up on the XFCE environment and how its faster than Gnome in many situations. I would have switched to XFCE earlier if it wasn't for me worrying about appli...

Re: Firefox fonts and menu mess. Any way to fix?

1) Fonts in Firefox look different from other apps. The GUI font is bolder then the rest of apps and the fonts on the pages is sometimes aliased and weirdly colored. I was googling for two days and tried every "fix" one by one with no effect. I've found 3 different variants of .fonts.conf - they di...

Re: Emerald & Firefox 4 on XFCE Debian

It will probably take somee time before we see Firefox 4 in Debian testing. Meanwhile, you can install it this way: http://linux-blog.org/install-firefox-4-on-linux-mint-debian-edition-lmde/ and to have better rendering of fonts in Firefox, I recommend this: http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php?p=75...

Re: How to change desktop icon spacing?

How to change desktop icon spacing in XFCE? I want to reduce horizontal distance between icons on desktop, but I don't know how. Is it possible ? You can have some control on icon spacing by editing your .gtkrc-2.0 file touch ~/.gtkrc-2.0 add something like: style "xfdesktop-icon-view" { XfdesktopI...

Re: Why are my applications not the latest possible version?

Sometimes packages have seemingly recursive dependencies (adding X makes Y uninstallable, Y is waiting for X). This means the new version of X will break the old version of Y, but there's also a new version of Y that needs the new version of X. sounds like a time travel paradox from an old star tra...

Re: what makes mint LXDE faster?

It's true that LXDE is lighter than Gnome, but an improvement of x3 in fps is too big to be explained by that alone. My guess is that you had compiz turned on in Gnome. Compiz uses a big chunk of the computing power of the display hardware. If you turned compiz off in Gnome, I believe that the fps c...
