Re: Grub2 loading Reserved Partition on Dual Boot setup

HOW did you install Mint alongside Win7? Did you use the installer to shrink the Win7 OS partition to make room?

Alt+F2 opens the run window where you can type a command to run a program. If you want to add programs to the menu, depending on which edition of Linux Mint you are using you would right-click the menu button and choose Edit menu. From there you can add new entries to your menu as wanted. thanks - ...

However for the effects our OP is looking for he will need to actually install compiz, and set it up, and learn some of the caveats that come with running compiz on Mate... Start by installing the compiz transitional packages, then all the other pie...
