Re: What is the difference between Debian, Fluxbox, XFCE, ..

Dare I say that Robin's post should be stickied? Seriously this is probably the most informative post for someone who wants to try Linux. I've tried a few versions (kbuntu and Mint) and found i prefer Mint, but then there are 4-5 distros, etc... It can be hard enough to find which version of linux y...

Turn of password for program installs

I've searched but didn't some up with anything.

I'm starting to get annoyed with all the password pop-ups. I already chose NO password for login so why do I have to keep using it.

/ Been digging around all the settings too and can't find the answer/

Re: no input keyboard during boot (GRUB OR KERNEL PROBLEM?)

Having this issue myself right now, bummer. USB Keyboard issues. Finally got dual-boot working and then I get no choice on OS, the arrows just won't work. But non of the kb lights come on in the boot menu either, so I don't think it registers at all. Fresh instal of Mint 9 (Main) + the 226 or so upd...

Re: bisigi project icons and gtk

Nice work on the Themes. I Dl'ed and installed the pack, tried a few out and have Airlines installed atm. I'm posting because I think I found a bug with it. I'm using Mint 9 (Main) and added a workspace switcher to my menu bar. But with this theme installed I can't drag windows from one desktop to a...

Re: GnoMenu or MintMenu?

I havn't trien Gnomenu so I can't say. But Mint 9 menu is pretty nice looking anyway IMO. At least as nice as Win7 and more customizable too.

Re: Unable to install with HD-4730 card

Maybe the same issue I ran into. I have a 5850 with 2 dvi monitor plugs on it. I accidentally plugged the monitor back into the bottom slot, instead of the top one. Windows still read it fine, but the live CD would only show on screen until the load screen was done. Then I got black screen and my mo...

Re: deleted bar at bottom of desktop - help!

Sorry. Mint 9 regular. ---and Thanks, that worked. Boy was I suprised when I deleted that and couldn't find any other way into the system. You can't do that on Windows. So far I think Mint 9 just has a few small learning curves to it that can catch you off guard if you are used to Windows, but I'm r...

Re: Difficulties installing 9... Solved

Solved. My bad, don't think anyone could've helped anyway. ---------- My 5850 GPU has 2 monitor plugs. When I yanked my machine out of my desk to get to the HD cables I polugged my monitor into the wrong plugin. Unfortunately I didn't notice because Win7 still came up fine. Mint 9 was probably loade...

Re: The definitive dual-booting guide

OK, I decided to try Mint 9. I made the liveCD, did instal, but i didn't want it on my already cramped C: drive (only have 4 gigs anyway) but I wanted it on same disc, different partition. I got it installed through the loader and changed partitions to swap and FX3 (or whatever it is). I guess this ...
