Re: Manjaro overtakes Mint in Distrowatch page-hit rankings

I tend to switch back and forth between Mint and Arch. Each has its strengths. Mint is more polished and stable, while Arch is bleeding edge and requires more work to set up and get looking right. Manjaro is great for people who want to try Arch but either are not real Linux savvy or just want Arch ...

DistroWatch Page Hit Rankings are just Page Hits, not popularity.
have a look at the actual rankings: https://distrowatch.com/dwres.php?resource=ranking
or the votes: https://distrowatch.com/dwres.php?resou ... sort=votes
Interesting... I did not know about these other rankings.

Same here. :( I do keep a bunch of Linux virtual machines at work though.

Re: Mate Desktop Changed Theme, Needs Mint-X

Thanks. I reinstalled those packages.
I never guessed

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get remove libreoffice*
would bork the themes! Live and learn I guess.

Re: Best Youtube (and others) videos about Linux

I used to be a huge fan of Nixie Pixel back in the day.... However, she's had a bunch of health issues and other life struggles and she's really not putting that sort of stuff out any longer. Some things are relatively fundamental and therefore are still relevant. Just search for her on YouTube and...

Re: Mate Desktop Changed Theme, Needs Mint-X

I removed libreoffice after a fresh install and all my themes and icons switched as you stated (weird green bar, etc). I installed mint-themes package which pulls in libreoffice-style-mint. I set theme to "Mint-X" and all is good again. Why on earth would the default out-of-the-box theme be tied int...
