Re: Can't Enable Visual Effects Extras!

Re: VirtualBox 2.2.2 Keeps Crashing in Mint 7

I'll try. The operating system itself seems flawless. Opening VB sometimes will freeze as soon as I attempt to boot the XP guest OS. Sometimes it will freeze after it is completely loaded and anywhere in between. Then sometimes it will cause my whole system i.e. including LM to freeze. Then it will ...

Re: Linux Mint 6 KDE released!

Overall, nice job Boo. Why is there not a uninstall option when I right click on a menu item like there is in the Gnome version? That is one feature I was really looking forward to. Also, I don't have a Mint Splash Screen options in the splash screen settings, I loved my Black Mint Splash Screen. Ko...

Re: Adept Sources Disabled?

I'm figuring out that I need to do my Repository choosings in synaptic. Easy enough. But why doesn't Mintinstall take care of that?

Re: Ugrading to KDE 4.2.1 - How?

Thanks Husse, So all I have to do is go to synaptic and enabled the two ppa repositories at the bottom? Simple enough even for a newbie like me.

Adept Sources Disabled?

It appears to me that the Sources Menu's are disabled in Linux Mint 6 KDE, is there a reason for this or is it an oversight? BTW nice release, I'm loving it.
