MAKING MINT BOOT FASTER

I have mint 10 main and i am fed up of waiting a whole 55 seconds to get from power to login and if the time to load the bios and do all the checks is taken out booting mint actually takes 31 seconds. I have changed things in every way possible, disabled services, switched round numbers profiled the...

Thats a first, Marc! ive been looking on here and nearly every page has over 3 desktops from you. You should get a job as a desktop designer if there is a such thing.

Re: Horizontal Conky messing up background

I used the gotos, but had to chagne them for my monitor, and i also had to use it on my uptime as it formats the seconds in 1, 2, 3, not 01, 02 ,03. And to make sure that it woulodn't interfere with the time and date next to it, i had to goto on that as well, ootherwise it would still move the time ...

Re: Horizontal Conky messing up background

by setting the minimum_size value to my screen's width (1440) it stops the flickering, but instead of aligning it in the middle of my screen (as set by the alignment top_middle) it aligns it to the top left of my screen and still resizes, but without the ripping of the background.

Re: Horizontal Conky messing up background

All i know is that when the text moves (as it does when the cpu value changes) it makes it wider or narrower and the bit of the background conky is on ends up misaligned for a second. It is more noticable with patterened or colourful wallpapers It could be Compiz having a redraw problem or X, or the...

Re: Unofficial Post Your Linux Mint Desktop Thread

Marc, a while back you had a horizontal conky, and as i have one now i was wondering if you ever had the problem when the cpu percentage changes and the whole conky moves and the background ends up miisaligned for a few seconds. Is there a way of stopping that (go here for the thread i posted it on ...

Horizontal Conky messing up background

I have made a horizontal 1-line conky and when the values like the cpu percent or time change, it pushes out the text further so the transparent part where conky is is out or line with the rest of the desktop for a few seconds. I am running compiz if that makes a differentce. Is there any way of sto...

Re: Unofficial Post Your Linux Mint Desktop Thread

Thanks Marc :D . Getting it 'just right' is hard. i really dont want to have to change the gtk theme from standard mint as i like it how it is , so getting the right wall..... takes time.

Re: Unofficial Post Your Linux Mint Desktop Thread

Nice desktop mmesantos1. :D It makes Unity look nice (i dont like the dock along the side, even though it saves vertical space on your netbook). I just discovered that Awn now lets you drag and drop iconts onto the taskmanger part and automatically adds them. Before, it never did that and was on of ...
