How many GB does LM needs for a desktop

Hi everyone! I'm going to install LM 13 on my SSD in dual boot and because of the space is extremely limited I want to give the strict necessary to LM because with Windows I use lots of videogames! I looked for an answer over the internet but people say 10-15-20gb, depending. I read that if, for exa...

Re: Another DE option for Mint 12 - Cinnamon

I read yesterday that Mint is forking Gnome Shell and the job I can see from images around the web is very good. We need an alternative to Unity and Shell and Mint is going on the right way.. good work! It would be nice to take advantage of this new shell to modernize the general look. In particular...

Re: Little improvement in MintMenu

I didn't know about the possibilty to look for files in home folder. Now I understand why the focus does not go immediately to application list. But like reoh34 said, it would be good to be able to have something different, because me too rarely use the file search. The first possibilty is to add an...

Re: Linux Mint 12, and beyond?

With other, I meant maintaining an Ubuntu-based Mint, that is excellent for software disponibility (especially in ppa that are really useful), it's simple and simply it works with lots of hardware. And, furthermore, Canonical's developers do the most dirty work for you :D But, make a distro absolute...

Little improvement in MintMenu

Hello! I'd link to suggest a little -but useful- improvement in MintMenu... this is the idea: when you're typing something to search, every time you write a new letter the focus should go immediately to the first element of search result, but, at the same time, you must be still able to type a new l...

Re: Improve taskbar look

I fail to see your reasoning. From screenshots I've seen over the years (and personal use of Windows), both Windows and Mac have the same boring look they've always had. As stated above, very few devs have the huge job of keeping Mint internally up-to-date and adding a little eye-candy once in a gr...

Re: Improve taskbar look

We have hundreds of Linux distributions that are practically the same and when they are not, they propose something of really similar with few differences in theming or included utilities. Useless. Ubuntu, regardless you like Unity and other stuffs, should be an example for all others distribution m...

Re: Improve taskbar look

Really? Is nobody interested in it? No, not really. I prefer the minimal look of the panel as it is. Nothing fancy/snazzy/gaudy interests me. Just my thing. Carry on... I like the minimal and ordered style of Gnome too, in particular the fact that (unlike KDE) I find what I need where I need ... th...

Re: Improve taskbar look

@Aging Technogeek Mint developers have not a control on official gnome-panel choices, but they can easily use a custom version in Linux Mint. After all, Mint 11 will not include neither Shell nor Unity, but a custom desktop shell based on the actual one. @bobwya Personally I find ridiculous that Gno...

Improve taskbar look

I suggest to make more modern the look of the taskbar, that looks the same since the first versions of Gnome 2.x. Honestly, not so beautiful... Some improvements could be: Implement a new notification area, with unimportant icon grouping and a more acceptable look (kde4?) Improve general taskbar loo...
