Re: Linux Mint 12 Release Candidate

Running the Live-USB now... It is fast. Clem and company have done a great job so far! It makes using Gnome3/Gnome Shell almost bearable. That comment is in no way a dig on Linux Mint, Clem or the devs. I'm just still having a hard time with Gome3/Shell. As stupid as it sounds, I really like and mis...

Re: I lost window borders

I am having this problem too. Both of my systems have nvidia cards and when I enable the cube the window borders go away. The only thing I can do is revert back to metacity. I did a fresh install of mint 11 on both machines and installed updates and nvidia drivers. Anyone have any suggestions?

Re: Workgroup problem connecting to Windows comp

I had the same problem. The Windows 7 box causing me problems was running 7 Home Premium. Windows 7 uses a different authentication method but it can be changed. 7 Pro / Ultimate can use secpol.msc but 7 Home Premium I had to run regedit and do the following. How to do it: 1 . Open registry editor (...

Re: Gloria RC 1

Last night I was installing Windows 7 RC on my Dell Latitude D810. Though it is a HUGE improvement over Vista, I was left feeling empty and not fully satisfied. Then today while at a client, I went to distrowatch and saw Mint 7 RC1. As soon as I got home I downloaded it and installed it on the same ...

Re: Help with desktop effects

I still cannot get this to work despite the suggestions of those who wrote back trying to help. Thanks to those who have. What I don't understand, is why this does not work with Mint and other "buntu" based distros when it works in others. I even tried the bleeding edge Fedora 9 and it wor...

Re: Help with desktop effects

No worries... I researched that part and figured that out. I cannot install the drivers as it comes up and says there are none to be installed (restricted drivers that is). I guess since it is based on Ubuntu that I might not get it to work. The last time it worked was 7.04 and the other distros I m...

Re: Help with desktop effects

I just tried that and it still doesn't work. Did I miss anything? Do I have to make changes to my xorg.conf?

Help with desktop effects

I am new to Mint and to Linux as well. I have hopped around a bit usually landing with Ubuntu but the last two versions disabled the ability for my latop to run Compiz-Fusion where distros like openSuse, Mandriva and pclos work like a charm in that department. Yes I know one answer could be to just ...
