Re: Compiling Mint LXDE like Gentoo

thank you, but isn't it complicate to "Mintify" it, would it not be better, if someone make a distro out of that. I heard, that the portage package-manager is very good.

Make mintMenu follow Gnome icon themes

Re: Deluge 1.0

Run this from a terminal first:

Code: Select all

sudo apt remove --purge deluge-torrent-common
The old version conflicts with the new, and that will remove it.

I was once a user of Sidux and nyone who spends any time in the Sidux community will appreciate the tremendous amount of work it takes to maintain Sidux (e.g., Debian Unsta...
