Re: Terminal-Input-Field in Panel

As a top-down sliding terminal applicaiton, you may want to try Tilda (a Gnome app):

or Yakuake (a KDE app):
http://yakuake.uv.ro/

Both are available in the repositories.

Re: root password"

And with sudo, the password that you will be putting in is your normal user password. Like this:

Re: Super key to open main menu

I doubt it will be possible. The main menu in Mint is a custom menu application that is activated as an add-on to the panel, and afaik, has no shortcut key. On the other hand, if you are willing to forgo the Mint menu for the standard "Apps/Locations/System" menu, then you can appoint a sh...

There are a few ways to do this: 1. While shutting down, press Alt+F3 (F4, F5, F6, F7, etc.) to find the text screen whenc...

Re: Does it effec to Mint Elyssa?

I believe 8.04.1 is just a bundle of latest kernel subversion, updates and fixes, which are also available via Synaptic. So, if you regularly update you system, you should already have the latest fixes.

Re: Shortcut not working

Did you also check if there is any action bound to Alt+F1 in "Keyboard Shortcuts" tool? Or if Compiz is active, from ccsm (= Compizconfig-settings-manager, installable via Synaptic) Because traditionally, Alt+F1 is used to show Gnome menu.
