Re: Install and uninstall the XFCE meta package?

yes. i have done this with Mint 7 in the past.

there might be a config file or two left behind but they won't affect anything.

it isn't necessary unless you are worried about hard disk space.

Re: FYI - thinkorswim stock trading client for Linux

Won't putting a "." before the folder make it hidden? As I recall the wizard will create a thinkorswim directory in your home folder if you tell it to.

Mintmenu not on panel/in middle of screen --posiible?

Is it possible to configure MintMenu to open if it is not on a panel? Is it possible to configure MintMenu to open in the center of the screen? I have a small screen netbook and would like to operate without any panels. I find that MintMenu won't open with a keystroke unless it is attached to a pane...

mplayer plugin stops instead of playing - bloomberg.com

I am trying Mint 5.0 via a live CD. When i try to play clips available at Bloomberg.com mplayer gets a playlist then just stops -- it won't play the clip. I tried each of the video output settings in the configure panel with the same result.

Any ideas?
