Re: LCD Backlight

Don't worry, he's joking. He always does that.

EDIT: I realized just now that you answered yourself.

The problem is widely discussed in the Ubuntu Forums. I don't know if there's a solution yet, but try to do a search there.

Re: How Do I Install Games Without a Fast Internet?

No. The ubuntu alternate CD is identical to the normal CD except from the text-based installer.

But why don't you mirror the repositories to a USB stick?

Re: ReadyBoost

Couldn't you made up something like ReadyBoost in Vista? ReadyBoost is a stupid thing Windows came up to make us waste flash drives, for some mysterious marketing reason. It would be faster to add swap space to the hard drive, than to use a USB flash drive. This is because, even if flash memory is ...

Google Mint search page

I always use mint's google page to give money to the project, and I know that you cannot put the image search or other links for a matter of your deal with Google. But I saw this page. And this person has done it. Nobody said him anything. Why he can and you not?

Re: Banshee for Mint 5?

I made a mistake with Banshee. The ubuntu package is only the 0.13 version. I just downloaded the 0.99.1. It's AWESOME. It's definitely better than the others.

Re: POLL! - Do you want mintTools in a separate menu entry?

NO. I want them to not be named after Linux Mint. They must be called 'update manager' 'install software' and so on. This improves integration.

Re: Complete Graphical Overhaul for Mint 6.0

The thing with setting guidelines for themes is that it is very subjective, some ppl prefer lighter themes, while others, such as myself, prefer a darker theme. The trick is finding one that looks good all around. If you make a theme that looks good with particular icon set, it is a good idea to pu...

Re: Installing Mint for "Newbies".

You shouldn't make the installer decide for the user. You should only show the things to the user in a way he/she/it* can understand them. So maybe the partition editor should have (in novice mode) all the partitons listed in a familiar way to novice users. Something like: Disk 1 300 GB |-----------...
