Re: System Settings Cannot Display Image Correctly

Hi, You just need to add a few icons to /usr/share/icons/[current icon theme]/categories/24 - see this page for downloadable icon files and instructions. (Alternatively, add some .svg icons of your choice into that folder, and rename them accordingly.) Tried the download-and-install just now; worked...

Re: Name that Movie

Good guess, but wrong war. (There's a rather infuriating paucity [read: absence] of British soldiers in Saving Private Ryan ... :wink: ) Hints: - First World War film. - Multi-language, and swaps POV between regiments of three different armies. - Involves bagpipes. Plus Christmas carols, coffee, and...

Re: What is your favorite band?

Pink Floyd.

My first tattoo was a 'Dark Side of the Moon' prism on my arm. :D (Dad was quite proud of that: I'd been raised with excellent musical taste thanks to all his old LPs. ;) )

Well, quite: as a good Catholic girl, I'm all in favour of Maria. :D

Re: Installing over Ubuntu

Didn't work out for me when moving from Ubuntu 11.10 to MInt 12, unfortunately - lost sound and touchpad functions for starters, and it made a bit of a mess of things overall. (Very few issues with subsequent clean install of Mint 12.) Obviously not a universal experience, though, so definitely wort...

A native Steam client for Linux (which ain't going to happen, I know; or not anytime soon...). I'm aware that others have had varying degrees of success running Steam through Wine/PoL, but for me, every hack and crack in the book wouldn't get it functioning properly on my rig.

Was having the same problem with Firefox under LM9 (red/pink screen, then crash, on YouTube) - fix worked nicely for me. Cheers for that!
