Re: MintUpdate

Thanks! :) How did "universe" ever get in there? I initially did not have this problem but it started a few days ago on my relatively fresh LM...

Hi, Sometimes, after a fresh boot and login, I find that the appearance has changed. It seems to be some default theme and when I open the Appearance Preferences, I get the message: Unable to start the settings manager 'gnome-settings-daemon'.

Re: Ubuntu One in Debian Edition ?

I must commend you for your tenacity. I'd have given up at the first hurdle :lol: I wonder, though, whether if you had got it working as it should, would all the effort have been worth it? not so cynical! ;) ... i've got some backups stored on U1 so it would have been nice to see it working. beside...

So here goes: Download/open...

Hi, I noticed the weirdest thing: Each time I start my laptop and login, the first time I want to open the menu, I need to click it twice before it opens.
