LMDE MintSwirl Wallpaper

Hey guys, I've just stuck the new RC on my machine and figured I'd make a nice clean WP to go along with it. I'll knock out some more resolutions if people request them. Click image for 1920x1080. http://i.imgur.com/mLjzjl.jpg here is the matching mint menu icon to go with it http://dl.dropbox.com/u...

Re: Extended Monitor Problem

If you installed the driver from the AMD website you should have it already. You can launch it from the terminal with

Code: Select all

$ sudo amdcccle

Re: Can't connect TO Mint 12 via SSH but can connect FROM

try connecting to the ip rather than host name eg

Code: Select all

$ ssh user@192.168.1.100
rather than

Code: Select all

$ ssh user@machine-hostname
If thats your problem just edit the /etc/hosts file and add the ip's + hostnames to there so you can connect via hostname

Re: Chromium going full screen

Deleting /home/user/.config/chromium should fix it, does the odd times it happens to me, unsure what causes it.

Re: Gnome3 for the experienced (FUN Stuff!!!)

Quick question for anyone that might know.. How does Gnome 3 work with ATI drivers atm? Last time I tried it I had odd colours in the bar at the top and some flicking, would be interesting in knowing if this is fixed, did a quick search but couldn't find anything. Thanks.

Re: LMDE Simplicity

Cheers for the link, I'll check it out and probably have a go. I'll probably have another mess around in blender too, try to understand it a little better and maybe make another wall based on the same 'theme'. Thanks for the comments as well :)
