Re: Mint-Xtra - updated icon theme for Mint

Thanks bimsebasse, It was painful to merge (I'd much prefer small incremental github commits tbh) and some icons didnt' make it in (mostly the Apple looking silver buttons and the archive icons), but overall it's a fantastic improvement over the original Mint-X. Many thanks for this amazing work. h...

Re: Theming -- single point of origine

The idea is great, but i thing the post is not at the right place. Maybe a base for gkt4 standards: a system with a notion of heritage. I think it's a remark that should be heard by this team: https://live.gnome.org/GtkLove

My wish list for Caja

So far Caja is a good file-manager but to be a great file-manager, the developer should give a serious look to Gnome-commander. It is the only one that you can trust for changing owner and privilege. And when you have a lot a symbolic link to manage,you have only 2 choices: Midnight-commander and Gn...

Re: impossible to log as root after installation of mint 13

@NormanDunbar Removing the desktop is a very bad call. And it's very easy to prove. How many command in console mode have the "undo" option? Zero! Once you screw up in the console, there's not way back. You're are []! And it's impossible to create a safer environment. So in term of securit...

Re: impossible to log as root after installation of mint 13

I believe, from reading the "Introduction to Linux Mint" manual's installation instructions, that when you set up a user as part of the install, then the root user gets the same password. This appears to be true of my own KDE installation of Mint 13, because both my user and the root user...

impossible to log as root after installation of mint 13

Is it a bug or it's normal ?

I know the debian distro don't have a GUI for the administration but Lisa had one. What about Maya ?

You are correct but the version you refer to is very old - this is posted for those who like their software a little more current. And what's the difference between version 17 in the repo and version 17 you refer too? Basically, with version 17 in the repo, you can not install most of the existing ...
