Re: Rebecca's XFCE Panel Dosen't Display CopyAgent Menu Icon

Kind of on topic and off topic. I had the issue of clicking on the CopyAgent executable and thinking the Icon wasn't showing. What I found, it actually wasn't installing. Drove me up a wall for a bit. :oops: So, if you are having this issue, it may not be installed. See this post for installing via ...

Re: LMDE

Why: rolling release. In January of 2006 I started with Ubuntu. Upgraded until Clem and his crew released LMDE. I love the whole concept of a rolling release but I was to lazy to go the Arch route. Thanks Clem (And to show I mean that, I am off to give you another donation. You and your team deserve...

Re: XFCE weather applet

Did it stop working for anyone else? A few days ago I started getting No Data and it hasn't resolved itself. This has something to do with Weather.com now charging lots of money for their weather feed that used to be free for almost ten years. And Linux users are not alone. Windows 7 weather app ha...

Re: Configuration files on update. Keep or Replace?

You can edit "greeter.gconf-defaults" to change the background, icon, and theme on the login screen to your taste. g...
