Re: In the desert.

My sympathies to you for the loss of your father, and for your peers on the helicopter.

Thanks very much for providing an update. Glad to see yet another HP user!

Re: How to upgrade to Flash 10

Thanks, clem, the installation of adobe-flashplugin went off without a hitch. One question: When I opened Synaptic, I noticed that while flashplugin-nonfree is now uninstalled (as it should be), flashplayer-nonfree 9.0.21.78-3v1ubuntu1 is still installed. Is this normal? Is there a Flash player 10 I...

I use Emerald, and usually eyedropper from a dominant color on my desktop (in this case, part of Kaguya's kimono) to color the titlebar, frame, shadows and panel.

Re: The Google browser - Google Chrome

OK, I've been trying out CrossOver Chromium, and I have to say my first impressions are pretty positive (although sadly, the celebrated easter egg didn't work for me - all I got was a blank page). There are some minor things that weren't working right for me, such as the way fonts are rendered somet...

Re: Unofficial Post Your Linux Mint Desktop Thread

It's that time of year again, and I'm continuing with Touhou themed desktops. Went with dual panels this time - the upper panel is for windows, and the lower one is for apps. Unchecking "Expand" for the lower panel makes for an unobtrusive dock-like panel that uses half the memory of Cairo. As alway...

The Google browser - Google Chrome

This comes out later today . For Windows only, so far, but it's open source. As you may have read in the blogosphere, we hit "send" a bit early on a comic book introducing our new open source browser, Google Chrome. As we believe in access to information for everyone, we've now made the comic publi...

Re: Mint Debian

The subject hasn't strayed since Parsix IS Debian, just stylized and interpreted in a way that the Parsix developers envision. Obviously, a Mint derivative would re-imagine the same packages in its own way. As for your comments about "a lot of building" being involved, the same would be true if pur...

Re: Mint Debian

OK. since the subject has strayed away from a Debian-based Mint and onto a Parsix-based Mint, I have to say that trying Parsix for a couple weeks installed in a test partition gave me a lot of headaches. Without going into too much detail, I found that there was a lot of building entailed in Parsix....

Re: Level 4 & 5 updates

I run all the updates as well, but only because I have my data on separate partitions. Even then, when running Level 4 or 5 updates, I make a note of which ones I selected, so that if I do bork the system, I know to avoid installing those again after a fresh install. But I'm the kind of person who f...

I have 3 bootable installable linux partitions on my computer, and all of them can share the same data.

I never installed debian but will try and make the iso.
I then would upload it to filefront for others to download.

Re: Mint Debian

The ISO image turned out 777MB, so I'm going to take out OpenOffice.org and replace it with Abiword/Gnumeric which should reduce the size considerably. Also, I've made an update to my mint-artwork package for Debian, so now the background and settings are applied by default in GNOME: http://files.f...

Re: Mint Debian

I second lakehousetech - good to see someone doing the heavy work for those of us who'd love to see this happen and give it a test drive, but (speaking for myself personally) lack the technological know-how to make it happen. Many thanks.
