Re: Linux Mint 10 KDE

Well, I don't know what I did, but after a reboot today, my desktop effects were disabled. In my attempts to turn them back on, I discovered that all the desktop effects plugins are missing in the system settings. Must have been an update gone bad? Have you actually received any updates over the pa...

Re: Linux Mint 10 KDE

I have an Atheros wireless card and when I suspend, about half the time, the card doesn't wake up on resume. Is anyone using the RC have this problem? I'm kind of hoping it's been fixed somewhere along the way. I know it worked fine in LM 8.

Re: alt tab programs on different workspaces

Hmm... sorry about that. That's where the option is in KDE 4.5.3.

Try changing the task switcher option is your panel to "Show only tasks on current desktop" and see if that helps.

Re: unable to fresh instal

You can also move your old files to the new user, since you know the password for both users.

Anywho... I hope it's working as you expected now and good luck!

Re: unable to fresh instal

It's not really a matter of deleting the old settings. What you CAN do, is just modify your existing setup. Right click the desktop, choose Change Wallpaper option. Choose the Themes tab and look for Mint or Mint-X theme in the list. Choose that one. Right click the top panel and choose the add widg...

Re: unable to fresh instal

Create a new user and it will be a "fresh Mint" user.

The settings you are seeing are because you kept your /home partition. Your desktop settings are stored there, so when you login in, you are using Mint with your settings from Ubuntu.
