Help KDE win an award of 1000 Euros. Need your votes.

Hello, A German bank, DiBaDu, is currently awarding 1000 Euros to the 1000 most voted clubs or organisations in Germany that have registered for this. KDE started off at the top spot, but has been falling in the last few days, and falling fast. It is currently ranked 1007. If KDE were to win this aw...

Re: Why linux mint NEEDS to make KDE its default UI

I was not talking about the gnome shell, but a good ol' gnome desktop. People seem to be under the wrong assumption that just because gnome-shell is aimed at smaller screens, gnome3 is not good for the desktop. I am running Fedora15 with gnome 3, and I have it setup exactly like gnome2 without the m...

Re: Why linux mint NEEDS to make KDE its default UI

Why not just make our own desktop environment based on Gnome 2? Sorry, but I like my GTK+ applications. Also, is there no reason that Gnome 3 can't be modded to fit our needs? There's no good reason for the panels not being movable and for the GTK+ themes to not be changeable. gtk+ applications sti...

Re: Linux as a learning tool

Hi! Welcome to mint! From what I have seen and heard, children pick up Linux fastest because they are not used to to any habits from the past. So it is not surprising that your grandson is able to use it. :) Unfortunately, since Linux serves only about 1 or 2% of the total userbase, it is somewhat u...

Re: Why linux mint NEEDS to make KDE its default UI

In fact I can give many good reasons why Mint NEEDS KDE4 to remain user friendly and accessible to its target audience: 1: Gnome 3 is broken and mostly uncustomizable, you cant move the panels, you cant delete the panels. Plus the Mint team will need to recode mintmenu to GTK3 soon so the best solu...

Re: You can't deny that Mint 11 looks horribly dated now

I have little to no doubt that one day I will be using Gnome 3 or Unity one day soon but Gnome 3 was a complete rewrite and Unity a relatively new project - neither of these desktops had me or people like me in mind when they were designed. Improvements for power users will come I'm almost certain ...

My fedora 15 with gnome 3 fallback mode. You can barely realize that it is gnome 3 and not gnome 2.

Re: Ubuntu Studio moving to Xfce

I can do that myself w/Liquorix kernels Or you could just use a realt time kernel right? There should be a ppa somewhere and the -rt kernel is available in the repositories AFAIK. This is because I remember seeing a mailing list a while back, where they showed that Liquorix kernel's BFS doesn't rea...

Re: Metacity or Compiz

I thought Compiz, not Metacity, was the default manager of Katya? Anyway, you can replace compiz by metacity (the less flashy but less buggier of the two) by entering "metacity --replace" in the terminal. Similarly, you can bring back compiz by entering "compiz --replace". To make it the default do ...

Re: Linux 2.6.38 power problems found!

That's nice, but honestly I wonder why they waited till now to actually track the regression the proper way. At the risk of talking out of my ass, that's the first thing I would have done. Maybe the equipment was too expensive to resort to immediately.

He has apparently included a lot of small scripts to make debian easier to use. From his about page: Liq...

Sweet. I didn't know you could get the latest kernel in the LTS version. Did you use a ppa?

Re: Changing from Mint10 to Mint11

Kendall's right. I'm extremely happy with Linux Mint 10, and don't plan to upgrade until Mint 12 is released. Doing things like replacing OpenOffice.org with LibreOffice and installing Banshee were a snap. Really, if you're comfortable with what you have, I would say you should just stick with it. ...
