Re: ATI graphics card multiple displays; don't want them clo

As stated in my post, the Xinerama option is greyed out. I have made some progress, however. I tested the driver on Ubuntu 11.10, and it behaved exactly the same way as in Mint 12, which isn't all that surprising because Mint 12 is based on Ubuntu 11.10. I then tested on Ubuntu 11.04, and the driver...

ATI graphics card multiple displays; don't want them cloned

I'm a newbie regarding this topic. I have a dual-boot Win 7 and Mint 12 system with an ATI (XFX) 5970 Black Edition graphics card and three monitors. I've downloaded the latest graphics card drivers from AMD (v. 12.1). In Win 7 my desktop is exactly the way I want it: the middle monitor is the main ...

Mint 12: Can't find Users and Groups [Solved]

Mint 12: I can't find "users and groups." Is it called something different? I need to add myself to the 'vboxusers' group for Virtualbox. There's a "user accounts," but you can't do very much in there.

Re: Mint 12 Tips & Tricks Guide (updated Dec 14)

After following several of the tips in this great thread, I'm a lot closer to getting the look I want but I ran into a few problems: 1) The top panel is now on the bottom where I want it, but pointing to the top-left hot corner no longer shows the overview; what happens now is that the transparent n...

Re: Can't find some things in Mint 12 (Gnome)[Solved]

Your first question I can't answer. But for the second: gpe-taskmanager is a (very) nice one. System Monitor can also do it. Processes-> right click-> choice: stop, term, kill. 1) How do I connect to another Linux computer? In other words, in Gnome classic under "Places" there's a choice named "Con...

I just switched from Ubuntu 11.04 (Gnome classic) to Mint 12 (Gnome). I've figured out most of the new interface, but there's two things I haven't found yet. Maybe I'm missing the obvious. 1) How do I connect to another Linux computer? In other words, in Gnome classic under "Places" there's a choice...
