Fix timeout override on Notify OSD!

notify-osd currently has a timeout parameter, which doesn't work. It's not overrideable, despite being documented. There's an ongoing bug/discussion on the topic: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/notify-osd/+bug/390508 The Ubuntu developers seem to be not willing to listen to the cry from a...

Re: mintMenu disappears upon login

My folks are getting this problem. I've not had a chance to pop back there to investigate though.

Re: Banshee for Gloria !!

Ok fair point. If you push such views though you can't expect not to get a response. You have to remember the distro is put together with a general user base in mind. So whether Mono apps are used, depend upon how useful they are to the targeted user. And judging from Gnome-Do already being included...

Re: Banshee for Gloria !!

For me it's like GoustiFruit. Banshee = Mono and I don't want Mono on my Linux box! Rob Loach I'm sorry but you are wrong. No it's not a "fantastic development tool" but a useless development tool, excellent solutions for desktop tools already existed. It's a free clone of .NET, a Microso...

Re: Freezes

I get freezes too. No idea what it could be.

It's something that seems to come and go depending on the release of Ubuntu, some sort of kernel panic. I just accept it for now.

Re: Packages You Use/Don't Use

I quite like the package selection of Mint. The only thing I do miss (that Ubuntu has) is f-spot. I know it's a Mono app, but it's still a very good one. I don't really care for Tomboy and X-Chat. I typically just keep an install script that I update, so selecting packages is easy if I need to reins...

Re: Linux Mint 6 "Felicia" RC1 released!

No problems for me either. I've installed RC1 on my Dell M1330 without any problems, everything works out of the box. Couple of questions. - Is there an easy way of getting the new Ubuntu Gnome theme onto my laptop? - How come you dropped f-spot? (I know it's Mono, but Mono isn't that bad). There is...

Re: Linux Mint 6 RC1 Bug Thread

Not really "bugs", but I have a 1680x1050 monitor, and it appears the loading screen on boot with the progress bar is too small of an image. After about 1200x800 or so of the image being displayed, the rest around it is all black, so the thing doesn't fill up the whole screen. Also, when ...

Re: The current state of Ubuntu Intrepid.

I guess this is more of a rant than anything else. There was a time when I thought and said that Mint should stay with Ubuntu. Leaving them would be giving up a lot of resources. I am beginning to question that position. It seems like there are more and more bugs being left in the Ubuntu releases. ...

Default packages

I've just switched my laptops across to Mint and so far am very happy with it. Regarding packages, the selection is great. One of the first things I do with Ubuntu is remove all the stuff I don't want. However, in Mint there are a few which I think should be considered as part of the install: - bum ...
