Re: ccsm=compiz in lisa

Hi, If you are already using a different desktop, then press Alt + F2 and run the command "compiz --replace" to test compiz. If it works you can then configure your desktop to have compiz automatically run on start up. Installing fusion-icon is what some people prefer to do this, or you c...

Re: Wow. Horrible.

Meh. Been using it for a couple of hours now, and I just don't like it as well as I liked Mint 10 and 11. I hate the upper task bar, and I hate that the other notifications aren't down on the bottom right where I like them. I also really hate the new Start Menu. The old Mint Menu was almost perfect...

Nope, no GDM. Using Lightdm and Unity-Greeter. How about that?

Re: recover lost files

Now that I have traversed the links and read the information I consider that road ahead is not worth traveling. Why can't it just be simple? i would consider R-Studio the easiest program to use because of its nice GUI and which shows the actual files.The demo is only capable of recovering a small am...

Re: Autohide Top Panel

In Lisa 12 RC

If you do this:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/gnome3
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install gnome-shell-extensions-autohidetopbar

It won't work without changing the default distribution from "lisa" to "oneiric"

I would suggest that you bust a move cause "Lisa" isn't coming to the party until later.

Re: Mint 11 breaks my internet connection

As far as I know there are no differences in the network settings nor the hardware drivers. IE: Ubuntu distros. I have run numinous distros of Ubuntu and derivatives and never had a connectivity problem. This may be a switch issue rather than a OS issue. Throwing caution to the wind I would say the ...

Re: Mint 11 breaks my internet connection

Hello. I am a volunteer at a non-profit organization that refurbishes old hardware to give away. I usually install Ubuntu 10.04 or XP on the machines. I've been hearing good things about Mint lately, so I thought I would give it a try. In the building, we have a 4 port router with each port connect...

Re: WORKGROUP vs MSHOME

The best part of the banter is, no one really cares whether its WORKGROUP or MSHOME or MYHOME or LINUX_NETWORK. As long as each PC has the network setting the same they will all talk to on another.

Re: Linux Mint 12, and beyond?

Since this last posting we still have seen some changes. Gnome has forked and it is believed that most Ubuntu derivatives will not follow the Unity campaign. The fitments of Unity into the netbook are like Android for phones. I think desktop pc's and laptops are not going to be a Ubuntu goal in the ...
