Re: Who's that in the rear view mirror?

Unity is the only DE that has actually made me physically angry enough to take out the live DVD and smash it against the wall crushing the disk and putting a dent in the dry wall.

Re: Who has downgraded from 11?

I downgraded to 10 mainly because of compiz. I like having my effects run smoothly and emerald. And Linux Mint 10 just seems to work better than 11. The Kernel workaround for .38 isn't very hard to install so I have it on my Fedora install and it runs the same temp as 10.

Re: Why not Ubuntu?

>Why not Ubuntu? Because its a garbage OS but its a nice base to build on so Mint. I guess you could say that Mint is Ubuntu with common sense. The Mint community is better as its not all egocentric teenagers who think they know something about their computers but in reality they only know how to in...

Re: GNOME3/KDE4/XFCE QOTD

I know, I was saying that my laptop screen is sort of small compared to a 20 or larger screen so I don't raelly mind the full screen menu thing.

Re: GNOME3/KDE4/XFCE QOTD

I am actually using Gnome 3 in fedora and I couldn't agree more with that statement. Though I actually like gnome shell, but thats only because I have it on a laptop so the icons are no more than under an inch in size.

Re: Mic not working [Katya]

I've had these problems as well when I first started using Ubuntu. I fixed the problem by unmuting the input in the sound center thing. Now, I ain't no sound expert so I ain't gotta clue what them numbers and what not mean so hopefully someone with knowledge can help or somethin. Hopefully I helped ...

Re: animations are slower after enabling ati graphics carD?

I get the same problems when I enable it as well. I tried that fix the guy above me mentioned but it only decreased the lag, not fixed it. and I may be mistaken but don't the open source drivers come default on installation? If not well, I guess its only a matter of time before my laptop catches on ...

Re: What is your preferred web browser?

I use Firefox pretty much exclusively. It does what I need it to do, I've been using it since FF2 so I know what certain add-ons are called and It just works. I did use chrome(ium) a few times and its not really my thing. Also, I am not really a fan of google tracking its users even though I have no...

Re: Start the name Suggestions for Mint 12

I am a fan of the Lyra suggestion. Other than being an awesome constellation in the sky, It is also a name of a background pony in My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic and is ironically mint in color. It seems like a match made in heaven in my eyes. Linux could benefit from all the friendship, love, ...

Re: Removing Overlay Scrollbars

I am very glad to see this. its a sight for sore eyes actually. I am a hardcore hater of these scrollbars. I see no point to them, they just put the thing outside of the windows, I see nothing really revolutionary about them, they are just annoying. I really hate playing with that bar in order to ge...

Re: Why did you switch to linux mint?

Well its a rather boring story. The year was 2010. The OS was Vista. My antivirus ran out... Vista was pretty much on its death strokes. In a last ditch effort to use my ageing laptop (about a year old (dont ask) which is missing 5 buttons, the left click button, and the CD drive) I went to a websit...
