Re: Mint is overrated

An open letter to telenux and those like them: Might I just add this conversation could have been considered null and void from the get-go when the OP used words such as "invest" in a community purely driven by the donations of its users and the little ad revenue these sites generate? Let's not forg...

As promised eons ago (it's not done yet as I'd like to use some custom docks and menus, but it's at least something to play around with): Zack's Unofficial Linux Mint Conky http://img828.imageshack.us/img828/2742/conkay.png I use conkyForecast and conkyBanshee .

Re: MY FAVORITE LINUX LINKS

I don't like creating unnecessary threads so here's "somewhat" of a link of a new book out that I am falling in love with:
http://man7.org/tlpi/

I promise I don't work for the publisher or author or anything like that so this isn't some horrible shameless promotion. Just a geek who loves to code.

Re: Conky Showoff thread

I'm in Gimp trying to get this right. Then I get distracted by code or SuperTux Kart and well, I'll finish it up soon I promise. Just didn't want to leave it hanging.

Re: Conky Showoff thread

Cheers, phred that's some awesome use of the desktop. And that's some great work, hydn. I'm working on a very, very green version of that conky based off of one of the Linux Mint 11 standard backgrounds. Once that is done in a few I'll have some time to create the long post with all the code. Be bac...

Re: HP Mini 3000 Series Audio Workaround

Should be. I'm going to edit my original post to shorten things up. This was admittedly the first workaround I tried that completed the task. Thanks for the input! Either way it's still easier than going through Ubuntu's 10 & 11 sound diagnostics... eesh. https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SoundTroub...

Re: Conky Showoff thread

This is taken from a somewhat existing layout. I'll be changing the large clock font up and I'm going to have email and RSS feeds in the space between the Banshee track and weather. I like integrating conky with the desktop behind it. Gives it kind of a zen feel, eh? I just wanted to upload with my ...

Re: Mint Overtakes Ubuntu for #1 spot

We'll have to start doing some guerrilla marketing tactics to keep Mint on the minds and hearts of users. This is a great trend.

Re: You can't deny that Mint 11 looks horribly dated now

FWIW: You can take a pretty "standard" look with default / classic GNOME and turn it into something pretty wild with a little bit of conky, etc. Of course leave Unity and Gnome Shell in the repositories but if you're staring at your desktop and complaining that it looks "dated" without learning how ...

HP Mini 3000 Series Audio Workaround

So if you're like me, and I hope for your sake you're not, you've stumbled upon the fact after nearly 6 months of ownership that your HP Mini 3000 series does in fact have on board speakers. To my credit I didn't really use the machine until a couple weeks ago when I started traveling. Seems to be a...
