Re: Linux Mint 17 Name! Starts with Q

from an ancient culture and it sound something mystical, just like Maya. Along the same theme, what about Quenya ... it rhymes with Maya. Not really a personal name, but it's the name of an ancient fictional language invented by J.R.R. Tolkien. Since there aren't a whole lot of European female name...

Re: Mint 15 codename?

Whoa, way too early.

Anyway, it should begin with an N and end with an A. My suggestion would be "Nadia".

Re: GnoMenu for XFCE

It looks a bit like the Lancelot menu for KDE, although the layout is upside down. Personally, I don't feel much need for a menu in Xfce. I can use a dock for launching most commonly used apps, and the Xfce menu should be familiar to anyone who has been using Gnome 2. (You can access the same menu b...

Re: Ubuntu 12.04

I think consumers want something different rather than a traditional desktop. I'm not sure about that. It probably depends on what you mean by "consumers". Most "consumers" don't care whether their desktop is traditional or not, they just want to use their favorite apps and they...

@GeneC That screenshot looks awesome. Is it possible to use the older version of Unity on a more recent version of Ubuntu/Mint?

Re: Ubuntu 12.04

Showing the currently selected user's wallpaper in LightDM strikes me as a potential privacy breach. What if you have a racy wallpaper on a computer that you occasionally share with others? But perhaps encrypting your home directory will automatically disable this feature.

Re: Virtual machine vs dual boot

Dual-boot Pros: Makes you look and feel like a true geek. You can brag to your friends! I beg to differ. Running an entire OS inside a window will make you look 10000% more geeky. Even better, run multiple OS's in multiple windows and switch between them with Compiz. "I haz 5 PC's in this PC!&...

Re: Windows 8 and Gnome 3

AFAIK Windows 8 will also include a traditional-looking desktop environment for people who need to get actual work done. I simply can't imagine using Excel, Visual Studio, or Photoshop on a tablet. Also, I wouldn't be surprised if some of the more radical changes in Windows 8 got watered down in Win...

Re: Mint 13 XFCE

Purity is overrated. My XFCE box has Firefox, Thunderbird, LibreOffice, and a whole bunch of other apps that are normally not included in XFCE distributions. I also enabled compatibility options with GNOME services, so that I can use the GNOME keyring to manage my private keys when I log into other ...

Re: Mint 13 XFCE

I've made the argument regarding Lubuntu as follows: If I take Ubuntu 12.04 LTS and install LXDE on it, it would still have 5 years support. And if Lubuntu is pointing to the Ubuntu repositories, how could it not also have 5 years support since Ubuntu LTS is 5 years? Well, yes, the base system as w...

Re: Mint 13 XFCE

Only an LTS version every 2 years would be great. Sounds reasonable. Main Edition (Cinnamon) every 6 months following Ubuntu's regular schedule, KDE Edition maybe every year, XFCE Edition every 2 years following Ubuntu's LTS schedule, and a rolling Debian Edition. It would be more manageable than r...

Re: Mint 13 XFCE

Just so I am clear, is this poll regarding a Linux Mint 13 XFCE, based on Ubuntu, as opposed to the continued LMDE XFCE that would contain LM 13 features in its repositories? I believe that's what Sunewbie is trying to suggest here. Since LMDE is a semi-rolling distribution, it will eventually get ...

Re: Mint 13 XFCE

I wish that there is also a XFCE spin of Mint 13, which will be based on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS and not Xubuntu 12.04 LTS. I'm curious about your reasoning there. Xubuntu is based on Ubuntu, so it's all going to be based on Ubuntu anyway. Is there something specific in Xubuntu that you wish weren't inclu...

Re: My thinking about CINNAMON

Cinnamon's goal is to create a more traditional desktop based on gnome 3. Is it really? I doubt that. If there is MATE alive, why shoukd they create CINNAMON?? Because MATE is based on an old technology. You can't judge desktop environments merely on the basis of their appearances. The stupid new s...

Re: Making XFCE closer to gnome 2.32

Hmm, I found a minor issue. gtk-window-decorator crashes if I click the "menu" button at the top left of a window. I don't really need that button, so I disabled it using gconf-editor. The relevant key is apps/metacity/general/button_layout if anyone is wondering.

all other distros are in the same boat, as they all need to make their transition to Gnome 3. I have nothing against LM 12, but this quote is one idea that I just can't wrap my head around.
