Re: We need more testers to the new incoming repo (how-to)

I'm glad to help you ! I don't know about the netspeed applet, i've never heard about it. You make check on synaptic by typing "xfce4" and look at the plugins (or install xfce4-goodies, which drain more packages). If Gnome-shell doesn't load, it maybe that your graphic card drivers aren't installed...

I have good news for you, mate is useless, because XFCE 4.8 (and soon 4.10) is REALLY as perfect as Gnome 2.32. You ...

Thank you very much for your kind and fast reply. Indeed I also understand that some new step up like GTK3 will be interesting. But, tell me something: why to touch a superb GUI like LMDE.
