Re: Toggle Fullscreen in mint 11

Have you installed compiz-fusion-plugins-extra yet?

I use LMDE, so I could be wrong, but to me it sounds as if you don't have the extra plugins.

@linuxviolin You don't like Arch - good for you! You are making it sound as if no one else is complaining about KDE 4.5.... or changes to Gnome or NetworkManager or Xorg....

Re: Drawbacks of a Rolling Release?

II've been running Arch Linux on my home desktop for six years. Arch Linux, or the art of making even more difficult than Slackware... :| I disagree. Arch has been good to me for over a year now.

Re: How do you change the desktop folder?

You could try this: gconftool-2 --type bool --set /apps/nautilus/preferences/desktop_is_home_dir "false" Edit user-dirs.dirs: gedit ~/.config/user-dirs.dirs ...and make sure that it looks like this: # This file is written by xdg-user-dirs-update # If you want to change or add directories, just edit ...

Re: Login Screen problem...MY Fault...Help...Please

Have you tried deleting the line you added to /etc/pam.d/gdm ?

Code: Select all

gksu gedit /etc/pam.d/gdm
The last line should read @include common-pamkeyring
Delete that line, save and quit.

It will not solve your initial problem, but it will restore /etc/pam.d/gdm back to its original state.

Re: Europe's new front in the browser battle

You are right, I was using figures pulled from my memory. But I am not off by much! Your source claims the top 1% paid a staggering 40.4% of ALL taxes! As you go down the number grows. The top 10% pay most of the taxes. This is EXACTLY what I am saying! That doesn't sound fair at all. In fact, I am...

Re: How bout we tighten our lips a little with the noob title

I always thought that noob was just short for newbie... :D

Anyway, some programmers used to refer to their users as idiots at one stage. Perhaps they still do. Being called a newbie or n00b is much better, in my opinion.

Re: apt-cacher-ng configuration

I've been using apt-cacher (not -ng) for almost as long as I've had Mint 7 installed, and it has been well worth it for me. Can't wait to try out apt-cacher-ng with Mint 8. I believe that apt-cacher-ng is better than apt-cacher. Apt-Cacher NG is a caching HTTP download proxy for software packages, p...

Re: Is Linux 'anti-capitalist' and is this a bad thing?

I think that Linux is much more "free-market" than having a few monopolies control when/where/what/how the world uses their computers and other electronic equipment. If the current system is considered to be capitalistic, then it is wrong, imo. If bullying your way to the top and "extinguishing" you...

Re: 5 Ways the Linux Desktop shoots itself in the foot

I think that Linux should be taught to little children at school. That will ensure that Linux becomes second nature (like Windows)... the rest will follow. Why do some people believe that, because Linux is not mainstream, children will be at a disadvantage when using it instead? I thought that Windo...
